WHAT IS BELKYRA®? (KNOWN AS KYBELLA IN THE USA)
BELKYRA® (deoxycholic acid injection 10mg/mL) is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
It is a prescription only medication which can only be offered by licenced medical professional.
BELKYRA® (UK brand name) has now been approved by the MHRA for use in the UK. Belkyra consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which naturally occurs in our bodies.
This is a non-surgical treatment which can be done in the clinic, and with minimal side effects.
The solution is injected into the fat through a special fine needle using a unique technique for which special training is required. Multiple treatments are typically required, from 2 to 4 sessions depending on the area to be treated and the individual patient.
Manufacturers Kythera Biopharmaceuticals Inc said over 90% of those who tried the drug maintained a meaningful reduction of fat after two years, based on trials across Europe and the United States.
