Belkyra is an FDA approved chin fat dissolving treatment using deoxycholic acid.
This substance targets fat cells. Belkyra injections breaks down and destroy fats cells which are then excreted through the body’s own waste system.
As with any injection there is a chance of side effects such as bruising. Patients can limit the amount of bruising by avoiding alcohol as well as refraining from using anti-inflammatory medications 48 hours prior to their Belkyra treatment.
Other common side effects can include swelling, slight pain or numbness, and redness in the injection area as Belkyra works to dissolve fat cells.
Swelling will occur following the injection treatment and can last up to three days or more. Some patients may want to schedule these treatments near the end of the week or on the weekend due to the downtime that is associated with this procedure. Studies have shown that side effects will lessen during subsequent treatments.
Any side effects are temporary and will resolve quickly while beautiful results are permanent.
The majority of patients do require 2-4 treatments of Belkyra to permanently remove chin fat.
Visible results are seen after each treatment with full results after the 4th treatment.
