Belkyra™ is an injectable non-invasive approach that can reduce the build-up of excessive sagging fat beneath the chin while redefining the jaw line. It is comprised of deoxycholic acid in a synthetic form, which destroy membranes on fat cells so that the fat can be naturally released. This substance has been approved by Health Canada for cosmetic clinical use and is considered to be a viable option to a surgical chin lift.
Deoxycholic acid in its natural form is found inside the body and it naturally absorbs fat. When the synthetic form of deoxycholic acid is injected in the area below the chin it destroys the fat cells there and provides a rejuvenated, defined, and slim contoured look to the chin area.
Many people suffer from a double chin even if they aren’t overweight. Extra fat below the chin may be caused by hereditary factors or by hormones. A double chin can leave you feeling unattractive and now there’s a way to approach the problem without having to turn to surgical methods. Just a few of the Belkyra™ benefits include:
- No incisions
- No downtime
- No anesthesia
- No scarring
- Disappearance of fat
- Improved neck contour
- Look younger
- Feel more confident
About the Belkyra™ Procedure
A local or topical analgesic is applied so that you can remain comfortable during the treatment. The injections will then be applied along a transparent grid that is placed on your chin. The process can be completed fairly quickly and you may require 2 to 6 sessions – depending on the amount of subcutaneous fat that needs to be addressed.
If you are currently nursing or pregnant, it is best to pursue this treatment once you’ve stop breast-feeding or have given birth. As well, if you have any sign of infection in the area to be treated the session should be postponed until that medical condition is handled. We also recommend limiting your alcohol consumption before the procedure for a smoother recovery.
To find out more about Belkyra™ and whether it would be recommended for your condition, please schedule a consultation. This is a gentle procedure that allows you to immediately return to your day-to-day activities, but in some cases you may experience mild swelling, bruising and redness. If any discomfort is felt following the procedure, and to help reduce swelling, you may apply a cold pack to your chin for approximately 10 minutes. While it may be possible to hide any bruising and redness with makeup, it may be best to schedule your session close to a weekend if you are at all concerned about your appearance.
Belkyra™ is best suited for patients that want to reduce the bulging fat below the chin to experience a firmer chin and neck area. It’s a procedure that specifically addresses a double chin problem without having to worry about scars, stitches or incisions. This is truly a revolutionary, innovative treatment that offers an improved chin profile by targeting moderate and even severe stores of fat beneath the chin.
