Belkyra is Finally Here!


ReNue is pleased to be one of the first medical aesthetic clinics in Calgary and Airdrie to offer Belkyra™ to its customers. Belkyra, otherwise known as Kybella® in the United States, has finally come to Canada and you are going to be hearing a lot more about it. The manufacturer is Allergan® who also makes BOTOX® and Juvederm®.
Belkyra is an injectable solution that dissolves fat and although only approved for treating double chins it will have a lot more uses in the future to help with those trouble areas where unwanted fat accumulates even in people who are not overweight. The area of the neck under the chin is an area that has long been only treatable with surgery. Prices typically start at $10,000 dollars and move upwards for a surgical neck lift and liposuction. Now, a simple series of injections can take care of most mild to moderately plump turkey necks. The cost is half that of surgery and might tighten skin better than surgery.
The really cool part is how Kybella works. It is made of a compound that is naturally found in our gallbladders to dissolve the fat that we eat in our diet. Some smart people figured out that it can be injected to dissolve fat in a quick and safe way. It has been very popular in the States because for most people this is a problem that they rate as problematic as getting rid of troubling wrinkles. I think we in Canada probably feel the same way.
We are having some introductory specials so please come in for a complete and free consultation to see if this product is a good fit for you. We at ReNue are extremely excited about its arrival.

    Hi there,

    How much does one session typically cost? I’d like to know so I can adjust my finances accordingly as I know I’ll need it.

      Hi Samantha. Thank you for your question. Everyone required more than one treatment. The average is 3 and the cost in $500 per treatment. It is a permanent solution and feel this is great value to eliminate a problem area. Please come in for a consult to your most convenient location to see if you are a good candidate for the treatment and we will do a full assessment.

    Is this only for chin area? Also, I noticed above comment you quoted your price at 500 per session? Is it still that? Thank you!

    • Dr. McWhirter says:

      Hi Tara. Belkyra is only formally approved for the under chin region but we do provide the treatment in other areas if applicable. The price is $500 per treatment. Please call your closest ReNue clinic for more information and to book and appointment. Thank you for reading
