There is now an Medical injectable called Belkyra® that can help you love the chin you are in.
BELKYR® is an injectable drug that can reduce submental (under the chin) fat and redefine your jawline, effectively eliminating your double chin without surgery.
BELKYRA® consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. When injected into a targeted area, it destroys fat cell membranes, allowing the fat inside to be released and naturally eliminated from the body.
BELKYRA® is Health Canada approved safe for clinical cosmetic use. At Renu, BELKYRA® is administered by Dr Rebecca Fisher.

How are BELKYRA™ Injections Performed?
Once your first BELKYRA™ treatment session is scheduled, we recommend that you limit your alcohol intake and stop taking anti-inflammatory medications at least one week prior to your appointment. This is not mandatory, but will help make for a smoother recovery.
While this is a non-invasive procedure and you can return to your daily activities immediately afterward, you may experience some redness, bruising and swelling for a few days afterward. We suggest that you schedule your treatment near the end of the week, or over the weekend.
When you arrive for your appointment, we'll take a few "before" photos so you'll be able to see the difference once the BELKYRA® has had a chance to do its job.
Next, we'll apply either a topical analgesic, or give you a local anesthesia injection to make your BELKYRA® treatment more comfortable. Then we'll place a transparent grid onto your chin that will act as a guide for your injectionist to follow to ensure accuracy, and increase the probability of smooth, balanced results.
The treatment only takes a few minutes, and you can be on your way! If you experience any discomfort, you can apply an ice pack for 10 to 15 minutes afterward. This will also help reduce swelling.
If you and your injectionist decided you would undergo more than one treatment, your next BELKYRA® treatment appointment will be booked to take place four to six weeks after your initial treatment. On average, two to six sessions are required to achieve optimal results
