The safety profile of Belkyra Montreal is well characterized. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. These can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
The majority of patients will experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, Dr. Munk will administer Belkyra™ into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
When injected into the fat under your chin, Belkyra™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with Belkyra™ is not expected. Results are thought to be long lasting.
