I don’t think I have ever met someone, woman or man, who is in love with their double chin. Have you? Were they taking multiple selfies of the second chin and sharing it on FB or Insta saying check out my kick ass chin? More is less, right?
No. I think we can all agree where selfies are prolific, sharing piccys of the double chin just isn’t cool.
In fact, most men grow beards to cover the extra little chin. Insights from 2000 Australians, aged 18-60, found that 4.1 million said they have a double chin. Unreal! From this 62% were female and 38% were male. More than 1 in 2 were concerned about their fullness in the chin. However, only 1.4% have received double chin treatment for submental fullness.
Belkyra is the first and only FDA-approved injectable double chin treatment. It contours and improves the appearance of the “double chin” caused by unwanted fat (subcutaneous fat).
Benefits of Belkyra Treatment:
Gradual, yet subtle results
Visible results in 2-4 treatments
Treatment with Belkyra at Luxe Appearance is customized to address each patient’s unique appearance goals for an improved chin profile. Typically, two to four treatments, approximately six weeks apart, are needed to achieve the ideal result.
Submental fullness can make people look older and heavier than they actually are.

Now you can lose the double chin with Belkyra, a non-surgical injectable double chin treatment performed at Luxe Body.
Belkyra contains a non-human, non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, the deoxycholic acid breaks down the unwanted fat. Once fat cells are destroyed, they no longer accumulate or store fat.
Duration of Belkyra Double Chin Treatment.
Injections are administered into the fat under the chin by our expert providers. Each in-office treatment session typically takes 15-20 minutes. Many patients experience visible results with two to four treatments spaced at least six weeks apart. No more than six Belkyra® treatments are administered. For most patients, downtime following a treatment session with Belkyra is minimal.
Once the desired aesthetic outcome from Belkyra treatment has been achieved, the need for Belkyra re-treatment is not expected. That is due to the reason that Belkyra causes the lasting destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Belkyra treatment costs vary based on each individual’s treatment needs.
