Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic is one of Vancouver, BC’s first clinics to offer Belkyra for double-chin fat reduction. Belkyra or Kybella, as it is known in the U.S., is a non-surgical, injectable product that is significantly reducing under-chin-fat in 3-6 treatments. Based on over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients, Belkyra has proven to be safe and effective.

What is Belkyra?

Belkyra is an injectable liquid, made from deoxycholic acid, which is a lecithin-type chemical substance and is one of the body’s naturally occurring bile salts. It has been used in Europe and North America for over a decade to reduce localized areas of fat. When injected into the fat layer, it destroys fat cells by disrupting the membrane, leaving the cell’s contents to be processed as waste by the body.

BENEFITS OF BELKYRA

  • Reduces unwanted double chin fat without surgery
  • No anesthetic needed
  • Minimal downtime

Am I a good candidate?

Our consultants will check that you have excess submental fat (double chin) and confirm whether you are a good candidate for Belkyra.

Tell Dr. Frame if you have swallowing difficulties or bleeding issues.

BEFORE THE TREATMENT

After you have been fully consulted and have signed your treatment consent forms for Belkyra, you will be asked to take a series of photos. These photos will be essential to help gauge the progression of your results as every client is different. An aesthetic cream may be applied but most patients find the treatment tolerable without it.

To decrease the risk of bruising, avoid taking aspirin, motrin, Ibuprophen, advil and blood thinning medication 2-3 days before your treatment.

  • Avoid taking 1 week before the treatment: Don quai, evening primrose oil, ginkgo leaf, ginger, garlic, ginseng, feverfew.

What happens during the treatment?

The treatment requires multiple injections, (20-50) into the fat layers under the chin and is a quick procedure (aprox 20 minutes) with minimal discomfort. There will be some swelling immediately afterwards and for the next few days until the liquid dissipates.

After the treatment

Common side effects include the following:

  • swelling
  • bruising
  • numbness
  • redness
  • areas of stiffness or hardness in the treatment area

Rare complications that may occur include the following:

  • swallowing difficulties
  • nerve injury in the face or jaw, making it difficult to smile evenly or perform other facial expressions

Because only small amounts of fat are dissolved during your injections, your body can easily handle the processing of the unwanted fat cells without any negative impact on your liver or kidneys.

Post-treatment care Instructions:

There are no specific after care instructions with Belkyra. About 72% of patients experience bruising but it is easy to cover with make up and is not noticeable under the chin. You may notice minor skin tightening after the treatment but if more tightening is needed, Thermage CPT is an excellent accompaniment to Belkyra.

How many treatments will I need?

Every clients needs and results differ, so depending on how much fat you want to dissolve and how quickly your body works with the Belkyra, you will need somewhere from 3-6 treatments.

Other treatment options

  • Plastic Surgery
  • Liposuction
