Belkyra uses deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. This aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Belkyra (is the UK name for Kybella) and will be available from April 2021. Belkyra will initially only be offered by a select few clinics, including Berkshire Aesthetics.
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Belkyra destroys fat cells. The result is a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
Once the fat cells are destroyed they are gone for good. These cells no longer store or accumulate fat.
The easy in-clinic procedure will provide results in around six weeks. For many patients, repeated treatments are needed in order to achieve the desired result.
Belkyra is for anyone who wants to reduce fullness under the chin.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. It’s used to counteract signs of ageing like skin sagging and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest as well as drooping of the brow area. The device stimulates collagen production, which helps to create a more youthful look.
Treatment can only be administered by a Belkyra-trained healthcare specialist.
In the UK only a few clinics will be permitted to offer the treatment and Berkshire Aesthetics is one.
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Our doctors will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each Belkyra treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
After Belkyra treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing or injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.
