Belkyra Injections for  Double Chin Treatment at City Skin Clinic

Belkyra, known as Kybella in the US, is a fat dissolving injection that has been designed by Allergan (the makers of Botox and Juvederm) and which has been FDA-approved for double chin reduction. Belkyra injections work by destroying fat cells and hence reducing the appearance of submental fullness (fat under the chin). Double chin reduction has traditionally been limited to invasive surgical procedures such as liposuction. Belkyra offers a non-invasive injectable alternative and was shown to give a meaningful reduction of fat even after 2 years in 90% of patients based on trials across Europe and the United States.

Since the beginning, we have gained a reputation for excellence and safety in London. All of our expert doctors are firmly focused on delivering a fully bespoke treatment tailored to your goals and lifestyle.

What is BELKYRA and how does it work?

BELKYRA contains deoxycholic acid which is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring molecule in the body that normally helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When BELKYRA is injected into submental fat beneath the chin, it destroys the fat cells there. These cells are then no longer able to store fat and hence the end result is a noticeable reduction in the appearance of a double chin and improved profile. BELKYRA is best suited for those with mild to moderate amounts of fat beneath the chin although it has been approved by the FDA for use even in severe cases.

What does BELKYRA treatment involve?

Our doctors start by taking a detailed history and examination to design a treatment plan that is entirely personalised to your needs. After numbing your skin, the treatment will involve a series of injection (up to 50) into the fat underneath the chin. This takes 20-30 minutes. Whilst there is no downtime to BELKYRA injections as occurs with surgery, there is usually swelling after the procedure. For best results, you may need a course of BELKYRA treatments with up to 6 sessions (at least 4 weeks apart).

When will I see results after BELKYRA injections and how long do they last?

Most people will see noticeable results after 2-4 BELKYRA (KYBELLA) treatments although up to 6 treatments may be needed (at least 4 weeks between each treatment). Since Kybella destroys the fat cells, there should not be any need for further treatment once you have completed a course.

When will Belkyra injections be available at City Skin Clinic?

Belkyra has already been licensed and used in the US (as Kybella) for a few years and has been making its way around the world (it’s available in Australia and Canada) and has received approval in Europe.
