RESULT WITH BELKYRA
How does BELKYRA™ work?
The active ingredient in BELKYRA™ is formulated with deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fats. BELKYRA™ destroys fat cells when injected into subcutaneous fat. Fat can no longer be stored or accumulated in those cells.
By injecting BELKYRA™ under your chin, it targets and destroys fat cells. Over a series of treatments customized by your doctor, BELKYRA™ gradually improves the appearance of your chin profile. Re-treatment may not be necessary once your desired results have been achieved.
A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT BELKYRA
Q.How is BELKYRA™ administered?
A.BELKYRA™ is typically administered in an in-office treatment session lasting 15 to 20 minutes. You will be given injections under your chin during your treatment sessions. Depending on your needs, your physician will customize your BELKYRA™ treatment. A treatment plan will be determined together.
Q.Are there any side effects?
A.There may be side effects associated with BELKYRA™, as with other injections. Swelling, bruising, pain, and numbness are the most common side effects. During clinical trials, BELKYRA™ was generally well tolerated and caused few to no serious side effects.
Q.Will I need multiple treatments?
A. Patients treated with BELKYRA™ typically see a noticeable improvement in their chin profile after two to four treatments. For best results, some people may need as many as six treatments. Additional treatments are usually unnecessary once you achieve the results you desire.
Q.What should I expect on my treatment day?
A.In order to make you more comfortable before your doctor administers BELKYRA™, your doctor may apply ice/cold packs to the area to be treated or apply topical and/or injectable local anesthesia (e.g., lidocaine) to the area. During your appointment, your doctor may also recommend that you take an over-the-counter pain reliever. After the treatment session, you may apply ice or a cold pack for 10 to 15 minutes to the treatment area if needed. The treatment session won't take you more than 15-20 minutes. Clinical trials found that mild pain was experienced immediately after treatment but rapidly subsided within 15 minutes.
Q.Do we experience downtime?
A.Most people experience little to no downtime after their first treatment session. Keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatments.
