Fat Destruction Injections/Lipolysis (Belkyra, Deoxycholic Acid (DC), Phospatidylcholine (PC))

The permanent, non-surgical solution that gets rid of stubborn fat pockets, forever.  Say goodbye to those pesky, resistant areas with our latest treatment.

What are “fat injections?”

Firstly, if you are reading this, you should know that you are not alone. Recent studies have shown that as much as 8 out of every 10 people feel that they have areas of weight gain that is resistant to conventional approaches of fat loss.   7 out of 10 people would like to alter the appearance of the submental fullness and their overall jawline (Double Chin area). This number resembles the same number of people that are bothered with their fine lines and wrinkles — more that SEVENTY percent!

There are a number of different reasons for developing a “double chin”, or other fat pockets:

  1. Genetics
  2. Age
  3. Weight related

Contrary to popular belief, fullness in certain areas of the body are often unaffected by diet or exercise. Often, despite the strictest diet plans and intense exercise regimes, this area seems resistant to conventional ” fat loss” methods, leaving patients feeling self-conscious and even dissatisfied with their appearance.
Until recently, there has been no other solution to removing the stubborn fat other than undergoing surgical liposuction.


Fat dissolving injections such as Belkyra, Deoxycholic Acid and Phosphatidylcholine are approved injectable medications that contour and improve the appearance of fullness in areas such as the double chin, muffin top, bra fat and banana roll ( the fat roll under the buttock fold). These medications are injected into the subcutaneous fat causing permanent destruction of the fat cells. Once fat cells are destroyed, those cells cannot accumulate or store fat again.

Belkyra is a non-human, non-animal formulation of Deoxycholic acid (DC). Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule produced in our bodies to help with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The compounded molecule resembles the Deoxycholic acid produced by our bodies 100%. DC is used in the reduction of localized fat pockets.

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is also known as Lechitin, dissolves fat that is stored within the fat cell.

Belkyra, DC, PC or a fat-destroying lypolytic cocktail  is injected into the subcutaneous fat, this leads to permanent breakdown of the fat cells and in effect a well-crafted, lean silhouette.

Lypolysis is a non-surgical method for those who would like to see a slimmer “ you” but would rather avoid surgery to achieve it.  If you would like to permanently get rid of your double chin, muffin top, bra fat and banana roll then look no further than Captivating Aesthetics in Grande Prairie.

Why the stubborn fat?

Often this is happening due to factors influences you beyond your control. These factors include:

  • Genetics: Certain body areas are known for their capability to store fat cells, which is commonly inherited. Young patients can be victims of this, but it typically worsens with age.
  • Aging: The natural progression of aging includes a common factor for all: a fuller chin, the muffin top, the dreaded pouch… Causes can include the accumulation of fat, loss of muscles, and extra skin in the surrounding area.
  • Weight gain: Gaining weight comes naturally with age and can contribute fat pockets in certain areas.

Whatever the cause may be, fat injection Lypolysis can help you counteract these effects. The onset of the effect is immediate, and the results… it literally melts away fat…. PERMANENTLY.

Before After

Process & Treatment

As with any procedure, there are precautions and factors to be aware of before jumping on board.

Deoxycholic acid, alone or in conjunction with Phosphatidylcholine, is indicated for moderate to severe fullness of the submental area (Double Chin), or areas resistant to fat loss. These treatments can be used as targeted fat loss, to improve the appearance of stubborn fat pockets and cellulite.

The first step is to book a consultation with our team, as each patient has very specific goals and needs, every treatment plan differs. This will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation.

Lipolysis is a process that often takes 4 to 6 sessions. The interval at which these sessions are schedules can range anywhere from 4-6 weeks. This may seem tedious, but it allows the process to be natural, non-surgical and minimally invasive.  It also allows progression of results over time so that it will not be “obvious” that you have received treatment for this specific area.

That being said, this is a non-invasive, minimalistic procedure. There is minimal swelling, the process only takes about 15-20 minutes, and you should be able to walk out into public immediately after your appointment.

Ultimately, Lypolysis is the go-to technique for those who find diet and exercise unproductive in the fight against stubborn areas of fat. It’s great for both men and women who would like to stay away from surgery, and the treatment can be combined with in-office skin tightening techniques. So, say goodbye to stubborn fat FOREVER, and reach out to book an appointment today.
