Deoxycholic acid (DCA) is injected into the treatment area to eliminate fat and reduce unwanted fullness. This treatment is ideal for chin fat (jowls) or under chin fullness and will gradually improve the appearance of under chin fullness within a series of treatments. Approximately 2-3 treatments will be needed over the course of nine months for optimal results. Best results can be seen within 2-3 months after the final treatment with significant improvement after one treatment. A topical anesthetic will be applied to the area prior to each treatment for comfort.
GET THE FACTS
Deoxycholic acid (DCA) is a synthetic form of a natural substance created by your body that absorbs and destroys fat. DCA works by destroying the outer layer of a fat cell causing it to burst, thus, destroying fat cells where it is injected into the body. In this way Belkyra/DCA allows for natural reduction of fat without surgery. Belkyra/DCA is the first and only treatment for under chin fullness approved by Health Canada.
