The Belkyra treatment uses a deoxycholic acid injection to breakdown fat around the jawline, neck, and under the chin. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. When the fat is broken down, it can be reabsorbed and excreted. A relatively new treatment in Canada, it goes by the name of Kybella in the US; Khloe Kardashian helped the procedure gain momentum becoming the official spokeswoman for the product.
This treatment is ideal for anyone who is uncomfortable with a double chin or a pouch of fat around the jaw. This procedure is non-invasive, however, consultation with a physician is required prior to booking.
