After Botox, the hottest new aesthetic treatment in Vancouver is Belkyra. Aimed at all those who have noticed a slackening around the jawline and under the chin, this procedure refines that double chin or pouch of fat.
Made by Allergan, the creators of Botox, Belkyra is a fat-dissolving injection used specifically for chin sculpting containing synthesized deoxycholic acid, a component found naturally within the human body. When strategically injected below the chin, the compound breaks down the fat cells, which are then naturally absorbed and disposed off by the body.

Belkyra, called Kybella in the United States, was approved for use in injectable cosmetic services in 2014. It came to Canada in 2018.
“Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body, aiding in digestion and the absorption of dietary fats. The deoxycholic acid drug substance used in chin sculpting is synthetically derived but functions in exactly the same way.”
Before the area is treated, Dr. Kamani will run you through what’s expected and ensure you’re a good candidate for the process.
Chin sculpting is carried out through a series of injections and requires no incisions. A numbing treatment is applied before the procedure to minimize discomfort. The injection zone will also be mapped out to ensure the treatment is specifically tailored to your anatomy and problem areas.
Injection amounts tend to vary as the treatment is specific to every patient’s unique anatomical landmarks. However, a set of 20-40 little jabs is pretty standard. It should be noted that although a numbing agent is used, the procedure, which takes around half an hour, can still be a little uncomfortable. It’s not uncommon to be puffy around the neck and chin area for several days post-treatment. Just remember, turtlenecks and scarves will be your friends.
Any discomfort can typically be treated with ice and over-the-counter pain medication. Results vary from client to client, but most clients will require two to four treatments to achieve the desired results. However, once the treatment program is complete, results are permanent. The fat will not return.
