How does Belkyra work?

Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body which helps  the absorption of dietary fat.It is a bile acid found in the liver and works to dissolve fat cells. Once it is injected into the targeted area (beneath the chin), the acid breaks down, absorbs and prevents further storage of fat in that area. Belkyra injections should be administered by a healthcare professional because the deoxycholic acid can also kill other cells.

How many Belkyra’s injections are required?

The number of treatment sessions required depends on individuals but generally speaking, multiple sessions (two to five sessions) might be required for effective treatments. Each session is about 15-20 injections, and the session needs to be properly spaced out by approximately one to two month intervals.

What are the risks and side effects involved?

In most cases, the recovery process for Belkyra is minimal, and the side effects subside within one to two weeks after treatment. Some common post-treatment side effects may include bruising, redness, swelling and numbness. Severe side effects may include an uneven smile, problems swallowing, facial muscle weakness and sometimes injury to the nerves. Report immediately any sign of severe side effects you experienced with your healthcare provider.
