BELKYRA™ – “Double Chin” Fat Reduction

February 20, 2016

BELKYRA™ is deoxycholic acid injection used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe amounts of fat under the chin, a condition that is commonly referred to as a “double chin”.

Deoxycholic acid is a non-human and non-animal formulation of a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the subcutaneous fat, BELKYRA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat again. BELKYRA™ is administered by injection into the fat under the chin, customized to the aesthetic treatment goals of the patient. BELKYRA™ needs 2-4 treatments 8 weeks apart. Many patients experienced visible results in the normal two treatments.  Once the aesthetic response is achieved, re-treatment is not expected.

Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
