How DOES Belkyra® work?
Belkyra® is an injectable treatment based on deoxycholic acid, a chemical substance that can be found naturally in the human body. Deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells (technically known as adipocytes and lipocytes) by disrupting their membranes. When the membranes are no longer intact, the contents of the fat cells are released. These contents are free fatty acids and glycerol. Your body takes these away to be processed as waste matter.
The fat that has been destroyed never returns, which means you’ll enjoy permanent results from your Belkyra® treatment. Only small amounts of fat are dissolved during your injection so you won’t experience any negative impact on your liver or kidneys following this non-invasive treatment.
The Belkyra® Double Chin Treatment is a safe and effective way to eliminate your double chin without surgery. All you need are simple injections to reshape your neck and contour permanently.
