Put Your Best Chin Forward
Belkyra is the first and only injectable treatment that targets and permanently eliminates fat cells below the chin with no surgery required. Many people treated with Belkyra experience visible improvement in the appearance of their chin profile in just 2 to 4 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart); up to 6 treatments may be administered.

How is Belkyra administered?
A single Belkyra treatment usually takes 15 to 20 minutes. Dr. Olesen will place a temporary injection grid over the area and then administer a series of injections into the area under your chin (within the pre-platysmal fat).
How many treatments will I need?
Many patients treated with Belkyra experience visible improvement of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. Some individuals may require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve their best results. Once your desired result are achieved, additional treatments are not needed.
Is there downtime?
Yes. Swelling and bruising are very common for this procedure and it is therefore advisable to plan for 2-3 days of social down time.
What are the risks and possible side effects?
Every injection of any medication involves a certain amount of low risk. Below are risks reported during clinical studies that are specific to the injection of BELKYRA™. BELKYRA™ injections commonly cause swelling (87%), bruising (72%), pain (70%), numbness (66%), redness (27%), and areas of hardness in the treatment area (23%). BELKYRA™ injections may also cause tingling, nodule, itching, skin tightness, and headache. These side effects typically resolve without treatment and do not commonly result in patients discontinuing treatment. Other less common potential side effects include:
Nerve Injury: BELKYRA™ injections may cause nerve injury in the area of the jaw resulting in an uneven smile or facial muscle or weakness (4%). In clinical trials, these all resolved without treatment in an average of 6 weeks.
Swallowing: BELKYRA™ injections may temporarily cause trouble swallowing (2%).
Skin Ulceration: BELKYRA™ injections may cause superficial skin erosions.
Alopecia: BELKYRA™ injections may cause small patches of hair loss in the treatment area.
What to expect on treatment day

treatment session will only take 15 to 20 minutes and afterwards, he will instruct you to intermittently ice the area over the course of the evening.
