What is BELKYRATM?
BELKYRATM is a synthetic chemical substance that can be found naturally in the human body in smaller quantities. The active ingredient in BELKYRATMis deoxycholic acid, which has been used in non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the reduction of localized areas of fat for over a decade, both in Europe and North America. Deoxycholate is one of the body’s naturally occurring bile salts.
BELKYRATM is a Health Canada approved treatment, often used to help reduce submental fat under the chin, otherwise known as a ‘double chin’. When injected into fat layers underneath the chin, BELKYRATM causes the destruction of these fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
How does BELKYRATM work?
Similar to dermal fillers, an injection is placed into the fat under the chin, and then breaks it down. As a lecithin-type of chemical, it disrupts the cell membrane of fat cells and gently smoothes out the cell pockets until your double chin is a thing of the past.
Your body has significant capacity to remove free fatty acids and glycerol, safely and effectively. Once the contents are released, they travel back to your liver for processing or through your kidneys for natural elimination. With a few treatments, BELKYRATM can provide an effective solution for significantly reducing or eliminating a double chin without surgery.
Many patients experienced visible results in two to four treatments, although up to six treatments may be necessary.
