If you’re bothered by your “double chin”, you’re not alone. In fact, 67% of people feel the same way.

This common, yet undertreated, fullness under the chin may be caused by aging, genetics, or weight changes, and often persists no matter how much you diet or exercise, causing you to look older and heavier than you are. BELKYRA™, also known as KYBELLA™, is a breakthrough injectable treatment that targets and permanently eliminates fat cells below the chin non-surgically, creating a more refined, youthful chin profile.

Double chin removal at Skin Science Dermatology in Toronto is safe, effective, and always performed by Dr. Geeta Yadav, a highly skilled medical dermatologist with extensive experience and training.

How Belkyra™ Works

The active ingredient in Belkyra is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the area under your chin, Belkyra targets and eliminates fat cells to restore definition to the neck and jawline. Treatment sessions are usually completed in the office in just 15 to 20 minutes.

What does Belkyra treat?

Is Belkyra safe?

Belkyra is the first and only Health Canada approved injectable treatment for the improvement of the appearance of fullness in the area under the chin, and is considered very safe when injected by a highly trained and experienced practitioner. The risk of allergic reaction in properly screened patients is low. 

The treatment is typically well-tolerated, though Dr. Yadav may administer a local anesthetic for added comfort. You may feel an uncomfortable stinging or pinching sensation that rises and quickly resolves. We will apply a cold compress to help with the discomfort.

How many Belkyra treatments are needed?

Many patients will notice visible improvements to the appearance of their chin profile in two to four treatments, though some will require up to six treatments. Once your desired results are achieved, additional treatments will not be needed. 

Is Belkyra right for you?

Belkyra is an innovative beauty breakthrough and first-in-class aesthetic treatment for both men and women who are bothered by fullness under the chin and wish to improve the appearance of their chin profile without surgery.

Recovery & Results

How long does it take to see results from Belkyra?

Belkyra gradually improves the appearance of your chin profile over a number of treatment sessions. Many people see visible improvements in just two to four treatments, but some will require six treatments.

How long is the downtime after Belkyra?

For most people, downtime is minimal and occurs most commonly after the first treatment session. As with other injectable treatments, you may experience mild to moderate side effects including swelling, bruising, redness, pain, numbness, tingling or itchiness and a sensation of warmth. You may experience a sensation of hardness across the treatment area or in small areas within the treatment area. Some patients also report headaches after treatment.
