Belkyra & Kybella Treatment in Toronto

Recovery & Results

Belkyra gradually improves the appearance of double chins and profiles over a number of treatment sessions, the number of which vary from patient to patient. Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient and naturally-occurring molecule in this injectable treatment, takes time to work. The results of each treatment session will be visible in about four to six weeks thereafter; many patients will see their desired results after four sessions, but some may need six sessions to achieve their ideal outcome.

For most patients, downtime is minimal and occurs most commonly after the first Belkyra session. As with other injectable treatments, you may experience mild to moderate side effects including swelling, bruising, redness, pain, numbness, tingling or itchiness and a sensation of warmth. You may experience a sensation of hardness across or in small areas within the injection area. Some patients treated with Belkyra also report headaches after treatment.

The side effects from this procedure, especially swelling or firmness, tend to last two weeks at most and shouldn't inhibit your ability to participate in normal activities. Your provider may suggest you avoid strenuous exercise for up to five days after your appointment, but generally speaking, as soon as your treatment sessions are over, you can go about your day.

A lot of injection treatment options, like neurotoxins or dermal fillers, offer temporary results. But remember, Belkyra treatment uses a substance that's found naturally in the body known for its ability to destroy fat cell membranes. Once those membranes are no longer intact, your body will eliminate the free fatty acids released by the damaged fat cells on its own—and those fat cells can't come back, meaning the results of your Belkyra injections are permanent. This creates a smoother, firmer appearance where a double chin once was, and that new look lasts, even with minor weight fluctuations.
