What is BELKYRA®?
BELKYRA® is a brand new treatment, due to launch in 2018, for tackling double chin.
You may have already read in the press about the new ‘fat melting injections’ which are already FDA approved and available in the USA under the name ‘Kybella’.
BELKYRA®, as it will be known in the UK, will bring clients a new option for tackling the difficult area of submental fullness – excess fat beneath the chin or ‘double chin’.
Results of treatment in the USA show significant reduction in fullness beneath the chin through use of BELKYRA® injections, delivering a slimmer profile and a better defined chin and jawline.
Surveys have shown that 67% of adults hate the double chin area. BELKYRA® treatment helps to achieve a stronger jawline which looks more youthful and stronger character.

Why do I have a double chin?
There are a number of reasons why women and men can develop submental fullness (double chin) and it is often a combination of factors which apply. These include
- Genetic tendency (perhaps a parent had a similar issue)
- Weight gain
There is not much that a person can do about genetic tendency combined with the natural ageing process.
Even trying to tackle weight gain can be frustrating, as diet and exercise can have little influence over the fat beneath the chin, as it can be quite stubborn to shift once it has accumulated.
The 'Science Bit'
- Belkyra is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a substance your body produces to help absorb fats
- As an injectable treatment, it can work to destroy fat cells under the chin
- This will be a prescription medicine, so only available with practitioners who work with a qualified prescriber
- At SkinViva, all treatments are carried out by fully trained aesthetic medical professionals
Price of Double Chin Treatment
We are currently awaiting information on costs and a launch date for UK availability.
Prices will be confirmed when we have further details.
Our treatments are competitively priced and we also offer an affordable interest-free monthly payment option for clients who prefer to spread the cost.
Consultations at SkinViva are offered free of charge with our aesthetic medical professionals.
Got a Question?
However, we would generally advise a healthy diet and active exercise regime for all our clients, to maintain a stable weight and avoid new buildup of fatty areas.
This will vary for each individual and will be fully discussed at your consultation.
The discomfort will be quite short-lived, lasting only around 10 minutes.
By comparison, BELKYRA®is cheaper, safer with a faster recovery.
