Double Chin Reduction (Belkyra/Kybella)

*At Philosophy of Beauty, we offer the very latest medical treatment approved for removing the dreaded, “double chin”. Belkyra is a non-surgical, innovative treatment for people who want to transform the appearance of their chin profile.*

Double Chin

*A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common problem for many people. A pocket of fat which forms under the chin and is resistant to diet or exercise can be extremely frustrating. Although a double chin is often associated with weight gain, a person does not have to be overweight to have one. The appearance of a double chin can cause a person to look older and heavier than they are. In the past, the only effective method of fat removal from this tricky area was submental liposuction surgery.*


*While it is known as Kybella in the United States, Belkyra is a Health Canada approved injectable product that can reduce moderate submental fat and redefine the jawline, working to effectively eliminate a double chin without the need for surgery. Belkyra has created a lot of buzz since it recently came to the market and we are excited to offer it to our clients. This revolutionary innovation in aesthetic medicine is currently the only non-surgical option available to effectively and permanently destroy submental fat.*

Benefits of Belkyra/Kybella?

  • Treatment with Belkyra is relatively quick with clients usually completing treatment in under 30 minutes.
  • Visible reduction of a double chin, improved facial profile and a more defined, sculpted neck.
  • It is minimally invasive, using extremely fine needles and leaving no scars.
  • Permanent results - Once the desired aesthetic is achieved, maintenance treatments are not usually expected. This is because once the fat cells are destroyed, the cell material is removed from the body, not just decreased in size as with typical weight loss.

Frequently Asked Questions

1How does it work?
*The active ingredient in Belkyra is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that assists with fat digestion in our digestive tract.  Put simply, Belkyra is a synthetic form of the bile we produce naturally, and thus can also effectively break down and eliminate excess fat cells where it is applied.*
*When it is injected into the targeted area, it works by destroying fat cell membranes. When the cell membrane is damaged, the contents of the fat cell – the glycerol and free fatty acids- are dispersed into the surrounding subcutaneous space. The contents that are leaked are then gently flushed from the body. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Therefore, when this lipolysis process takes place over a series of treatments, the problem of a double chin can be permanently solved.*
2How is Belkyra/Kybella administered?
*At Philosophy of Beauty Beauty in Vaughan, your comfort is always important to us. Topical or local anaesthetic is applied to the treatment area before administering the injections, and a cooling ice pack will be offered after. A small injection grid is applied to the chin, creating tiny marks to indicate where the medication will be injected. This facilitates a very accurate administration of Belkyra doses evenly to the treatment area. Following the treatment, it is sometimes advised to apply a cold ice pack to the treated area for 10 minutes on, 10 minutes off, as necessary.*
3How many treatments are required?
*The number of treatment sessions and injections will always be customized for the individual patient depending on the amount of fat present and goals they wish to achieve. On average, two to six sessions are required to achieve optimal results. Sessions should be spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The best news is, once the desired aesthetic is achieved, maintenance treatments are not required as studies indicate that the results are permanent if there are no significant lifestyle changes.*

Quick Results

*The fat which is treated is usually dissolved within 10-15 minutes of injection, however, swelling which usually develops for the first few days after treatment may take up to 3-4 weeks to subside. Settled results appear within 4-6 weeks and less product may be required for each subsequent session.*

Frequently Asked Questions

1What are common side effects of Belkyra/Kybella?
*The most common side effect is swelling but the majority of this will resolve within the first 4-5 days of treatment. Some clients also experience slight bruising, itchiness, redness, and general discomfort. Less commonly, some also experience temporary numbness or tenderness in the targeted area. It is advised that you avoid very strenuous exercise for a few days after your Belkyra treatment because it may prolong swelling and discomfort.*
2Who is a good candidate to receive Belkyra/Kybella?
*Belkyra is approved to treat moderate to severe submental fullness. If you have tried everything and are ready to say goodbye to your double chin, your answer is finally here- Belkyra may be the safe, effective solution you are waiting for. When laxity of neck and chin cause sagging or wrinkles, other treatments to tighten and restore the neck may be more effective.Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not receive any type of injection treatment. Those who have severe liver or heart problems should discuss those concerns with their practitioner. Patients who have undergone previous plastic surgery procedures of the neck, chin and jawline must be evaluated on an individual basis, as they may not be ideal candidates for the treatment. Those who have difficulty swallowing, bleeding problems or medical conditions that might affect the face and neck also may not be good candidates for Belkyra.*
