When injected below the chin, BELKYRA® reduces fat, resulting in a more contoured neck profile and jawline.

Fullness under the chin or a ‘double chin’ is a common concern for both men and women. It can be caused by aging, genetics or weight changes. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the fullness in this area may not go away – and it may make you feel like you look older and heavier than you actually are.
