Belkyra® which is approved by Health Canada, is an injectable drug that can reduce submental fat (double chin) and redefine your jawline.
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.

Is there any downtime?
While this is a non-invasive procedure and you can return to your daily activities immediately afterwards, you may experience some redness, bruising and swelling. We suggest that you schedule your treatment near the end of the week.
Are there any side effects?
In the clinical trials, the most commonly reported side effects of BELKYRA were in the treatment area and included swelling, bruising, low-grade pain, numbness, redness, tingling or itchiness, a sensation of warmth, or hardness. Dr Fisher will review in detail with you during your consultation.
What can I expect during my treatment?
When you arrive for your treatment, 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 a topical analgesic, to make your treatment more comfortable. A special grid is applied to the treatment area. These grid points guide precise dosing. Most patients describe minimal or no discomfort. An ice pack applied to the treatment site is sufficient to minimize some expected burning discomfort.
