The number of treatments required may vary depending on the individual’s response to the medication, but typically, a series of 2-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended.
Belkyra is not suitable for everyone. It should not be used in individuals with an active infection or inflammation in the treatment area and should not be injected while wearing contact lenses. Belkyra should also not be injected while pregnant or breastfeeding, as there is no clinical data on its safety and effectiveness in these populations.
Results from Belkyra can be seen as early as two to four treatment sessions, but the full effects may take up to 12 weeks.
Belkyra is administered by a healthcare provider using a fine-gauge needle. The number of injections required will depend on the amount of submental fullness present.
Before starting Belkyra treatment, it’s essential to discuss any medical conditions, medications, or allergies with your healthcare provider. You should also avoid consuming alcohol and blood-thinning medications for at least 24 hours before treatment.
