Want to learn more about getting rid of your double chin? Here’s everything you need to know about getting a Belkyra treatment.

Benefits Of Belkyra

Belkyra is a non-surgical, permanent treatment that takes less than an hour. A Kybella treatment can transform your looks and give you an incredible boost of confidence. Some of the other major benefits of Belkyra include:

  • Eliminating fat under the chin
  • Getting rid of your double chin with no incisions
  • No stiches necessary
  • No scars
  • No downtime

What Is Belkyra?

Belkyra, or Kybella as it’s known in some countries, is an injectable treatment. It uses deoxycholic acid to eliminate fat cells. This drug breaks down the membranes to disconnect them from your body. When your fat cells are free, they are simply washed out of your body like a toxin. This is a completely natural and safe process.

In fact, Kybella is the first double chin treatment that has been approved by the United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada for treating a double chin. Before Belkyra treatments, liposuction and neck lifts were the only option for eliminating a double chin. While effective, both of these options are invasive and require a considerable amount of recovery time. It is a really exciting new resource because it gives the same incredible results without the pain, downtime, or expense of surgery. This is the first injectable treatment that has ever received the government’s stamp of approval as an effective means to reduce the submental fat underneath the chin and it’s a total game changer.

Clinical trials have proven that Belkyra injections significantly reduce fat under the chin. In the cases studied, patients were found to have a significant increase in the contour of their chin. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid. This is a safe substance that occurs naturally in the human body. In clinical trials, the deoxycholic acid was shown to successfully target fat without damaging the surrounding tissue. After effectively destroying the targeted fat cells, this excess fat is naturally and safely eliminated from the body. For you, this means achieving dream results with no nasty side effects.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Belkyra?

Are you frustrated with stubborn neck fat? If you have a double chin that just won’t budge with diet or exercise, Kybella treatment can be a great option. This is a non-surgical solution for men and women that can make you look and feel amazing.

If you are in you are in your 20s, 30s, or 40s and have good general health, a Kybella treatment can enhance the way that you see yourself. If you are in your late 40s or older, a neck lift may be a better option for you. It’s important to remember that while it is an effective treatment for excess fat, Belkyra can’t eliminate loose skin. Only a neck lift is able to remove excess or loose skin. If you have excess folds of skin, you will want to chat with the doctor about possible surgical options.

It is recommended for men and women who have already tried diet and exercise but are still dealing with excess submental fat. A Belkyra treatment is able to target stubborn fat that won’t budget with traditional weight loss methods. In fact, a treatment can work with even moderate to severe submental fat (under the chin fat).

If you are at a healthy weight but are still dealing with stubborn fat under your chin, you may be the perfect candidate for a Belkyra treatment. Rather than spending weeks, months, or years trying to reduce your double chin, you could have a permanent solution to your double chin in a matter of minutes. And who wouldn’t want that? Treatments are ideal for a busy lifestyle because there’s no downtime. You can quickly get a treatment and go right back to work.

What To Expect From A Belkyra Treatment

A Belkyra treatment takes approximately under an hour. During your treatment, injections will be made in a targeted area underneath your chin. There is no incision with Belkyra treatments, which means no scarring or stitches.

Before beginning your treatment, Dr Turner may numb the area with a local anaesthesia or alternatively we can cool the skin with icepacks. Once the area is numbed, you will not experience any pain during the injections.

The Belkyra treatment will be injected into the fattiest area. Depending on the amount of fat you want to remove, you may be given around 20 small injections of over the course of 15 to 20 minutes. Again, there will be minimal pain, so the exact number of injections will not have a major impact on your experience. Each injection will contain 0.2 mL deoxycholic acid and will be spaced out over 1cm intervals across your skin. The treatment site is created with exact symmetry to ensure that an even amount of fat cells are targeted throughout the treatment area to create a smooth and uniform look.

The majority of people find that two to four treatments achieves their ideal results. We suggest these treatments need to be scheduled at least one month apart to allow each treatment become effective and for any swelling to go away. After each treatment, you will begin to notice that your double chin gets smaller over time.

Following a Belkyra treatment, it’s common to experience some level of swelling, redness, minor bruising, mild pain and/ or or numbness. These side effects will only last a few days. Simple treatments of ice packs and an over-the-counter pain relief medication will be enough to keep you feel comfortable.
