Belkyra (Kybella) Double Chin Treatment in Toronto

Say goodbye to your double chin & hello to Belkyra!

Belkyra, also known as Kybella, is the first non-surgical treatment approved by Health Canada and the FDA for unwanted fullness in the area under the chin. Submental fullness, also known as a “double chin”, can occur as a result of aging, genetics or weight gain.

Belkyra® is a revolutionary innovation in aesthetic medicine that allows you to eliminate your double chin without incisions, stitches, or scars! You don’t need liposuction to reshape sagging skin around the chin and neck – all it takes is a simple Belkyra® injectable treatment.

Belkyra - Doubble Chin Removal

Belkyra®, otherwise referred to as Kybella® in the US, can get rid of unwanted fat below your chin, without surgery! Finally a simple injectable treatment that can reshape your saggy chin and neck; it requires no incisions, stitches or scars!

The treatment involves a Belkyra® injection, which works to break down the fat you don’t want under your chin. In one or more sessions, you’ll see that bulging fat slim down, giving you a firmer neck and chin area.

Based on over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients, Belkyra® has been found to achieve the following results:

  • 68.2% of patients experienced a 1-grade improvement with Belkyra®

  • 16% of patients experienced a 2-grade improvement with Belkyra®

  • 79% of patients treated with Belkyra® were satisfied with the appearance of their face and chin

After being treated with Belkyra®, patients experienced an improvement in their self-perception. They felt happier and younger based on the profile of their chin. In addition, they didn’t feel as embarrassed, self-conscious, or overweight as a result of their improved chin profile.

How Does It Work?

Belkyra has an active ingredient known as deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected in the fat beneath the chin Belkyra destroys the fat cells resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

A Belkyra treatment takes about 45 minutes to an hour. The area underneath the chin is marked with a grid containing small dots to target the specific area. You will then receive multiple small injections under your chin ensuring that the product is dispersed evenly resulting in uniform resorption of fat.

Who Is It Suitable For?

Belkyra is perfect for both men and women who want to correct a double chin and or fullness under the chin without surgery. Belkyra treats moderate to severe double chins. Belkyra is not suitable for people with very large double chins, or a lot of sagging skin.

Your double chin may also be caused by things that Belkyra can’t treat, like fat lying deep in your neck, or a large neck or jaw muscle. To know for sure, We will need to see and feel your neck before deciding. We won’t treat you if you’re pregnant, breast feeding, or have an infection in the area.

What Happens During Treatment?

Once we’ve determined you’re a suitable candidate, we’ll take a series of photos, so we can follow your transformation. I mark your double chin area with a grid of dots using a temporary tattoo. This shows me how much Belkyra to use. We numb the area with local anaesthetic before injecting the Belkyra, one injection per dot. Most people have 20-30 tiny injections. That’s it, you’re done. You’ll need a course of two to six treatments, each spaced six weeks apart, to get your final result.

Does It Hurt?

The fat cell destruction causes a burning feeling under your chin for a couple of minutes. We use local anaesthetic and cold packs to make sure you don’t feel this. Once the burn is gone, it feels sensitive to touch, like a bruise.

What Do I Look Like After?

Immediately afterwards your double chin will swell up. The swelling is a sign that your fat cells have died. We love swelling!

The swelling peaks at day 2 and lasts up to two weeks. You might also have a bruise or needle mark that lasts about a week.

The area will feel firm, numb and lumpy, and could feel like a wobbly jelly when you move. It will be sensitive to touch. This is all part of the healing process. It usually takes 6-8 weeks to settle, and once it’s gone we do the next treatment.

When Do I See Results?

It’s a gradual process that takes 6 – 12 months. You’ll need two to six treatments spaced two months apart. Each treatment removes some fat.

The swelling after each treatment temporarily increases your double chin. This needs to settle, and your body needs to tidy away the fat cell debris, before you see the improvement in your jawline contour.

Some lucky people see a change just two months after their first treatment. Most people will need to wait at least four months after starting treatment, and some will need to wait twelve months.

What Are The Side Effects Of Belkyra?

Afterwards, you should expect to be red and swollen, and you might be bruised. Swelling usually lasts two weeks but very rarely can last up to four weeks.

Many people get areas of hardness that usually take 6 – 8 weeks to resolve. Numbness of the treated area is also common and gradually recovers over months. Most people aren’t bothered by it.

Rarely, Belkyra can temporarily affect a nerve in your jaw, giving you an uneven smile for an average of 42 days. Studies show there’s a 2% chance of this occurring, and that the nerve always recovers, taking between 4 – 298 days. Very rarely, trouble swallowing, skin ulcers and damage to deeper structures have been reported.

What Can I Do To Manage The Side Effects of Belkyra?

If you’re having pain or swelling where you got your injections, consider using the following suggestions with your healthcare provider’s OK:

  • Wear a chin strap for a few days after each treatment to help with swelling

  • Apply an ice pack or cool compress

  • Take an over-the-counter (OTC) pain medication such as acetaminopheen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen(Advil, Motrin) — if needed

  • Try an OTC topical anesthetic — such as lidocaine cream or arnica cream — if needed

But if you’re experiencing more severe pain that doesn’t go away, reach out to your healthcare provider. They can help make sure nothing more serious is going on. They can also give you more personalized tips for controlling your discomfort. 

How Long Does It Last?

Once Belkyra removes your fat cells, they’re gone forever, but your remaining fat cells could get bigger if you put on weight.

Let’s say you started with 1,000 fat cells, and that each treatment removes 200 fat cells. After four treatments, you’d have 200 fat cells left. Those 200 fat cells can grow bigger, storing more fat, if you put on weight. However, with fewer fat cells, you’ll always store less fat under your chin than you would have without Belkyra treatment.
