What is Belkyra?
Innovative and non‐surgical treatment options are now available that reduce the fat under the chin. Belkyra is a fast and stress-free injectable treatment that can be concluded in 15 to 20 minutes. This procedure is adapted to help you to reduce your submental fullness or double chin. Belkyra has been proven as a safe injectable substance that is used to reduce and potentially remove the surplus fat under the chin.
How does Belkyra work?
Belkyra is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a natural molecule that exists in the body that targets and eradicates fat cells when injected under your chin by breakdown and absorption of fat cells. Belkyra steadily improves your chin profile after having two to three treatment sessions adapted by your doctor. Once the desired results are accomplished, re-treatment is not anticipated. Patients can also go for rhinoplasty to improve their nose shape.

If you are worried about your submental fullness, you are not alone. According to a recent survey, around 67% of people said they under-the-chin fullness or double chin is a cause of concern for them. Belkyra might be a suitable treatment option for you if:

How Belkyra treatment is done?
Belkyra treatment in Rawalpindi, Islamabad & Pakistan usually takes roughly 15-20 minutes in the doctor’s office. At SKN Cosmetic surgery clinic our doctor will inoculate a series of injections into the area under your chin at each treatment session.
How many treatments of Belkyra will I require?
Many patients who are treated with Belkyra might experience visible improvement of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions. However, in rare cases, some people may require up to 6 treatment sessions in order to accomplish the desired results. Once the desired results have been achieved, re-treatment cannot be expected.
Is there any downtime?
For most of the patients, downtime is negligible and occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. However, when you are scheduling your treatments, keep your daily routine plans and commitments in mind.
How long will the results last?
When Belkyra injectable is injected into the fat under your chin, it causes the demolition of fat cells as liposuction does. Once these cells are demolished, they cannot accumulate fat and are completely gone. After the desired aesthetic result is achieved, retreatment with Belkyra is not expected.
