Are there any side effects?

Jeunesse MedSpa® | July 17, 2018 | no responses |

The majority of side effects are mild and temporary. The common side effect  we have seen are:

  • Swelling around the treatment area. The swelling  occurs because  your body is responding to Belkyra and destroying the fat cells. More swelling usually means a better result with fat destruction.The swelling usually lasts between 3-5 days. 
  • Numbness in the treated area. The area under the chin may be slightly numb for a few weeks to a month after the treatment
  • Heat & Redness. The treated area may feel warm and red for a few hours after the injections
  • Lumpiness in the treated area Some firm lumpiness can be felt which usually resolves within 4-6 weeks

Other common side effects include

  • Bruising (increased if any blood thinners have recently been used)
  • Pain
  • Itchiness

Rarer side effects have been reported including

  • Temporary weakness/ asymmetry of the smile due to injury to the marginal mandibular nerve  
  • Difficulty swallowing.
