Belkyra (also known as Kybella in the United States) is an injectable drug used to reduce the fat in the submental area, also known as the area beneath the chin. This non-surgical treatment uses deoxycholic acid – a naturally occurring substance found in the body – to destroy the membranes of fat cells, creating a beautifully contoured silhouette below the chin.
