BELKYRA™ – Double Chin Reduction

If you are bothered by fullness under the chin, you are not alone. A number of factors can contribute to the dreaded “double chin” including: genetics, aging and weight gain.

Approved by both FDA and Health Canada, BELKYRA™ is the first (and only!) non-surgical treatment in Canada to improve chin fullness. 

What is BELKYRA™?

BELKYRA™ (known as Kybella® in the United States) is an injectable used to improve the profile and reduce moderate to severe amounts of fat under the chin.

BELKYRA™ treatments are specifically used for under the chin (not anywhere else on the body) and must be administered by a trained professional. 

How many treatments are required?

Results and recommended treatments vary with each individual but most people experience optimal results with BELKYRA™ after 4 to 6 treatments—up to 6 treatments may be administered.


Who shouldn't use BELKYRA™?

  • allergic to deoxycholic acid or any of the non-medicinal ingredients in the formulation
  • have an infection in your chin or neck area where the product will be injected

For a full list, please consult with your physician and BELKYRA™ administrator directly. 

How many BELKYRA™ treatments will I need?

Optimal BELKYRA™ results can be seen in 2 to 4 treatments. Up to 6 treatments may be used. Results vary for each individual. 

Is there downtime associated with BELKYRA™?

BELKYRA™ is a non-surgical treatment with essential zero downtime While you may experience mild swelling and/or bruising afterwards, this is normal and will reduce on its own in approximately one week.
