What many people refer to as "double chin injections," is actually BELKYRA — an exciting option for Toronto-area men and women frustrated by submental fullness — the scientific term for a double chin. Without the need for surgery or anesthesia, BELKYRA, called KYBELLA™ in the United States, can shrink this unsightly bulge that's often difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise alone.
Dr. Bertucci is known in Canada, the USA, and around the world for his work with injectable treatments. As a leader in this exciting area of aesthetic medicine, he has trained thousands of physicians from every corner of the globe to help them improve their injection techniques and results. He was the first doctor in Canada to inject BELKYRA and was co-chair of the Canadian launch. Each practitioner at Bertucci MedSpa was hand-selected by Dr. Bertucci to meet the demands of his patients. Our team is known for creating results that are beautiful yet subtle, for noticeable rejuvenation that looks very natural.

BELKYRA is an injectable treatment that is used in both men and women to reduce submental fullness, commonly referred to as a "double chin." Most patients require 2 to 4 treatments with BELKYRA™ to achieve an optimal outcome, and results are expected to last indefinitely.
BELKYRA™'s active ingredient is a chemical called deoxycholic acid. Generated naturally by the body, deoxycholic acid is used by the digestive tract to dissolve and process fat from the foods we eat. When injected into unwanted fat beneath the skin, BELKYRA™ can break down the targeted fat, which is then eliminated by the body, creating a sleek, attractive profile.
BELKYRA is likely appropriate for you if you're bothered by the presence of a double chin, especially one that is resistant to diet and exercise changes. BELKYRA also appeals to people because it's minimally invasive and doesn't require anesthesia or time away from work and other responsibilities. BELKYRA is part of full face and neck rejuvenation. Ask us how we can help you achieve the look you've always wanted by combining treatments such as wrinkle-smoothing injectables, laser and energy devices, and dermal fillers.
Your BELKYRA appointment at Bertucci MedSpa lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. We begin your session by cleansing your skin to remove oil, dirt, makeup, and other impurities. We then administer a series of injections beneath your chin, each lasting for only a moment and feeling like a stinging sensation. Immediately after your appointment, you can return to your usual activities. BELKYRA is not expected to cause systemic side effects. Instead, they're usually minor and limited to injection site reactions such as swelling, mild bruising, and temporary numbness. Bruising and swelling generally resolve over the course of a few days, while numbness tends to resolve within a few weeks.
To achieve ideal results, Dr. Bertucci typically recommends a series of appointments spaced about 6 to 8 weeks apart. During your consultation, you'll get a better sense of how many appointments are likely to give you the results you want so you can plan accordingly. You may begin to notice your results developing weeks after your first treatment, with your ultimate results continuing to develop over the next few months. The results of your BELKYRA treatment are expected to last indefinitely, especially if you maintain a steady weight.
