The latest way to lose double chin fat without surgery.
There are many great things that come with age – a double chin is not one of them. There is a misconception that chin fat is a result of weight gain–which is not always the case. The development of submental fat can be a hereditary trait that does not improve with diet and exercise.
Previously, surgery was the only effective method to refine the jawline, but now, thanks to a breakthrough injectable treatment known as Belkyra®, Oakville and Southern Ontario patients can achieve a sleek and youthful profile without going under the knife.
How does Belkyra® work?
The Belkyra® treatment is composed of an injectable medicated treatment that when dispersed evenly underneath the chin, destroys fat cells. Some patients also notice a skin tightening effect as the treatment takes hold.
What is the downtime Belkyra® entails?
An effective Belkyra® treatment requires more than one session. Patients will experience swelling and may feel a burning sensation over the treatment area that subsides over the period of a week to 10 days. Treatments are spaced four weeks apart, during which time, the destroyed fat cells are expelled by the body.
If I gain weight, will the chin fat come back?
Belkyra® is a new treatment to get rid of a double chin, so the data around long-range results is in its infancy; however, initial reports show that weight gain subsequent to treatment does not result in a return of the submental fat.
Belkyra® turns back the clock.
