Double Chin Injections
Keep your chin up with Belkyra™ fat dissolving injections
Non-surgical treatment for under-chin fat
Belkyra™ (also known as Kybella™ in the United States) is an injectable alternative to liposuction that is fast and permanent to streamline a sagging chin and neck profile. Under-chin fullness is often stubborn to diet and exercise (considering that there are other factors at work including genetics and age) and if this concerns you, Belkyra™ is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment to break down the fat. 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. You don’t need the stitches and scars of surgery to love your neck in this new age of advanced aesthetic medicine.
What is the procedure like?
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. The injections are administered over a course of about 4-6 sessions scheduled about a month apart to give the body time to flush the fat (treatment is tailored to the amount of fat under the chin and aesthetic goals). 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.
How does it work?
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.
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.
How long do the results last?
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 they re-accumulate on their own. Say goodbye to that double chin for good!
Is it only for treating double chin?
Belkyra™ is currently only FDA- and Health Canada-approved for reduction of underchin fat. However, if you seek contouring in other areas, we’d love to discuss body contouring treatments with you– just book a free consultation!
