Belkyra™ is an injectable alternative to liposuction used to streamline a sagging chin and neck profile. It’s no secret that stubborn submental fat can make us look older and heavier than we really are and a well-contoured jawline can really change one’s appearance. Read below for 4 reasons why Belkyra™ is worth it.
1. It’s indistinguishable from the fat-metabolizing agent our body circulates naturally
Belkyra™ is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, a fat emulcifier found naturally within the body to break down and absorb fat. It works in these unwanted fat deposits to disrupt the membranes of fat cells and dissolve the free fatty acids and glycerol within them which are then processed as waste by the body. This fat-metabolizing agent takes advantage of a biological mechanism our bodies are already very adept at carrying out.
2. It’s Health Canada-approved and widely researched in the field of aesthetic medicine
Belkyra™ is the only FDA- and Health Canada-approved treatment of submental (underchin) fat. It has been extensively studied and researched worldwide in clinical studies with over 2,600 patients treated. Belkyra™ is among many other highly regarded and trusted products in the Allergan line including Botox® and Juvederm®. You can have the treatment with the confidence of knowing the product is safe for clinical cosmetic use.
3. The procedure is fast, non-invasive, and simple
It used to be the case that surgery was the only route to treating the stubborn condition of having submental fat in women and men, but thankfully not anymore. You don’t need the stitches and scars of surgery to love your neck in this new age of advanced aesthetic medicine.The injections are administered at our clinic by a qualified, experienced injector in the underside of the chin and the session typically takes under half an hour. With minimal, if any, downtime or lingering discomfort, you don’t need to take time off for the procedure. Simple and fast so you can be on your way to normal activities without any fuss.
4. The best part: your results are permanent
As Belkyra™ permanently breaks down the fat cells under the chin, it offers long lasting results with re-treatment typically unnecessary if there are no significant lifestyle changes. You can enjoy the results indefinitely since the body does not re-build the eliminated fat cells nor do the re-accumulate on their own.
