Fat Dissolve is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction surgery. This procedure uses a naturally occurring substance, found in your liver, that your body uses to break down fat. This bile salt is purified and under sterile conditions is directly injected into the unwanted fat deposits in your body, causing the fat cells to rupture and dissolve away. The procedure has been used successfully and safely for the past 13 years.

Belkyra is offered in our Toronto, Markham and North York medi spa. 



Belkyra, also known as Kybella in some regions, is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used for reducing submental fat, commonly known as a “double chin.” It is a non-surgical alternative to surgical procedures like liposuction for addressing excess fat under the chin.

Belkyra is generally considered safe and effective when performed by a qualified healthcare professional. However, it’s crucial to have a consultation to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment and to discuss any potential risks or side effects.

As with any medical procedure, it’s essential to choose a reputable and experienced provider to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications.


The main active ingredient in Belkyra is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the submental area, Belkyra targets and destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in the appearance of a double chin.


he candidacy for Belkyra (also known as Kybella in some regions) is typically based on individual factors and the specific treatment goals. It’s essential to have a consultation with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. However, here are some general considerations for candidacy:

  • Submental Fat: Belkyra is specifically designed to target and reduce submental fat, commonly known as a “double chin.”
  • Good General Health: Candidates should be in overall good health and free from any medical conditions that could interfere with the treatment or healing process.
  • Skin Elasticity: Candidates with relatively good skin elasticity may achieve better results. Belkyra primarily targets fat reduction and may not address significant skin sagging or excess skin.
  • Realistic Expectations: Candidates should have realistic expectations about the potential outcomes of the treatment. Belkyra can produce noticeable improvements, but it may not provide the same level of results as surgical procedures like liposuction.
  • Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should avoid Belkyra treatments.
  • Medical History: It’s essential to disclose your medical history, including any previous cosmetic procedures and allergies, during the consultation.
  • Alternative Options: In some cases, alternative treatments like liposuction or other cosmetic procedures may be more suitable for addressing specific concerns.

Benefits of Belkyra?

Some common reasons to consider getting Belkyra injections include:

  • Reducing Double Chin: Belkyra is specifically designed to target and reduce submental fat, commonly known as a double chin, which can be challenging to address with diet and exercise alone.
  • Non-Surgical Option: Belkyra provides a non-surgical alternative to procedures like liposuction for individuals seeking fat reduction under the chin without undergoing surgery.
  • Enhanced Facial Profile: By reducing the appearance of a double chin, Belkyra can help improve the overall contour and definition of the jawline, leading to a more balanced and attractive facial profile.
  • Boost in Confidence: Achieving a more sculpted and defined chin and jawline can boost self-esteem and confidence in one’s appearance.
  • Quick Procedure: Belkyra treatments are generally quick and straightforward, typically taking around 15-20 minutes per session.
  • Minimal Downtime: Most individuals can resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure, with minimal downtime or recovery required.
  • Gradual and Natural-Looking Results: The results of Belkyra are gradual and natural-looking, allowing for subtle improvements without drastic changes to the facial appearance.
  • Long-Lasting Results: With the proper treatment plan, the results of Belkyra can be long-lasting, providing a sustained improvement in the chin and jawline contour.
  • FDA-Approved and Safe: Belkyra is an FDA-approved treatment for submental fat reduction, providing reassurance of its safety and effectiveness when administered by qualified professionals.
  • Customizable Treatments: Belkyra treatments can be customized to meet each individual’s unique needs and treatment goals, ensuring a personalized approach to fat reduction.

What to expect?

The treatment process involves multiple injections administered during a single session, with the exact number of injections depending on the individual’s needs and the desired results. The procedure typically takes around 15-20 minutes.

After the treatment, patients may experience some swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection sites. These side effects are usually temporary and subside within a few days to a week. The body then gradually eliminates the destroyed fat cells over several weeks, resulting in a more contoured and defined jawline.

Depending on the amount of submental fat and desired results, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary. The practitioner will assess this during the consultation.


For optimal post-treatment care:

  • Use ice or a cold pack on the treated area for 10 to 20 minutes as necessary to reduce any discomfort.
  • Ensure you stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids after the procedure.

Following these simple steps will help promote a comfortable recovery and enhance your treatment results.
