BelkyraTM is the first and only Health Canada approved injectable treatment for the improvement of the appearance of fullness in the area under the chin.
Its active ingredient is the deoxycholic acid, a molecule found naturally in the body that helps break down and absorb fat. Injections of BelkyraTM into the area of the double chin target and remove fat cells.
BelkyraTM is a quick and easy injectable treatment that can be performed in a 30-minute session scheduled with Dr. Hébert. In most cases, depending on the severity of the double chin, 2 to 3 sessions may be needed, 4 to 8 weeks apart. The possible side effects include swelling, numbness, and bruising. They are temporary and last for one to two weeks.
Feel free to ask any of our doctors or other staff members about BelkyraTM to know more about this new service offered at the clinic.
