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. Cooper 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.
