Belkyra® for chin fat reduction.
Some aging changes are easier to accept than others…Crow’s feet are indicative of having had many occasions to smile; and let’s face it, a few forehead lines can look so distinguished on those who wear it well. Unfortunately, the same concessions cannot be made for a double chin—which is generally a hereditary trait experienced by both men and women, young and old. The accrual of fat cells underneath the chin is often unrelated to exercise and diet, making it all the more perplexing to understand how to get rid of a double chin.
At one point in time, the only way to correct a double chin was with surgery—specifically liposuction. While surgical advancements have diminished tissue trauma and thereby reduced the recovery required for liposuction, many people still prefer taking a non-invasive route. Fortunately, there is now a non-surgical option available to them known as Belkyra®.
Belkyra® to lose a double chin.
This breakthrough injectable treatment involves the precise dosage of a deoxycholic acid substance along a grid pattern underneath the jawline and chin, which safely breaks down the cell membranes of the unwanted fat cells. Once the contents of the fat cells are released, the body goes into clean-up mode, processing and eliminating the waste products through the liver. This chemical treatment is approved by the FDA and Health Canada for safely removing undesirable submental fat. Initial results have indicated that the results are enduring, regardless of weight gain post-treatment.
It’s difficult to share a price range for this treatment, as the amount of sessions required to correct a double chin with Belkyra® will vary for each individual. The treatment generally requires at least two sessions, and may take up to six or more sessions in order to achieve the optimal outcome. Patients can anticipate to spend anywhere from $1400 to $4500 to refine the contours of their chin and jawline with Belkyra®.

It can take up to two weeks for the swelling and tenderness from the Belkyra® treatment to subside. Once this recovery period has passed, a sleeker and tighter looking chin and jawline is revealed without a surgical scar in sight.
