Treatment with Belkyra® takes place in-clinic by Dr Mark Morunga. Many people experience improvement after 2-4 treatment sessions spaced at least 4 weeks apart. A maximum of 6 treatments may be given. Dr Morunga will carry out a full facial assessment to help determine how many treatment sessions may be needed, based on the amount and distribution of the fat under the chin and patients personal treatment goals.
Clinical studies have evaluated the efficacy and safety of Belkyra® in adults with moderate-to-severe fullness under the chin. These studies, Belkyra® was shown to have a high overall efficacy rate, demonstrated by an improvement in fullness under the chin as assessed by the clinician in the study at 12 weeks after the last treatment. In the clinical studies, Belkyra® was generally well tolerated. Most side effects (including injection site pain/swelling and bruising) were mild or moderate in severity, primarily associated with the treatment area and resolved without intervention.
