Belkyra is a special solution of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body. It reduces the amount of submental fat and redefines your jawline and chin without surgery. Using a particularly fine needle, we inject the solution into the chin area based on points established by a special template. After the subcutaneous injections, the process begins where the fat cells are permanently destroyed as the body naturally breaks them down. The procedure is slightly painful, so it is performed only after applying a topical anaesthetic cream that cools the skin during the procedure.
Do not shave the area for a few hours before treatment and do not use fragrances, creams or other ingredients that may cause irritation.
You must not use the treatment if you are sensitive to deoxycholic acid, pregnant or breastfeeding.
We use a very thin needle to put a special solution of deoxycholic acid into your chin. We use a special pattern to find points about 1 cm apart and inject the solution. Once the solution is used up, a process is started that destroys all the fat cells once and for all. The body then takes care of the rest. The number of injections and procedures is individual and depends on the amount of fat in the area. However, it is usually 2 to 4 times. The treatment is slightly painful, so a local anaesthetic cream is applied, which also serves to cool your skin.
No further care is required after the treatment. However, if you feel a slight burning sensation or if the area is slightly irritated, use cold compresses.
The recommended recovery time is only a single day.
After the application of Belkyra, swelling occurs. This may not look so good at first glance, but it means that the treatment was successful. The area may also be irritated or you may feel a slight burning sensation, but this will disappear after a few hours. The swelling itself will go down in 5 to 14 days after treatment. During this period, regular check-ups will be performed.
