At Aesthetic Solutions we’re proud to offer our patients Belkyra, the first and only Health Canada approved injectable that can permanently eliminate unwanted fat underneath the chin, restoring a slim and contoured facial profile.
A double chin presents when excess fat accumulates in the area under the chin. This can be due to genetics, the natural aging process or excess weight. In many cases this fat cannot be addressed by diet, weight loss or healthy lifestyle choices. In fact, fat in this area has the tendency to stick around even after you’ve lost weight from other areas of your body.
Until recently, the only way to remove your double chin and achieve an enhanced and defined jawline was with an invasive surgical procedure, liposuction. Not anymore. Belkyra offers discerning patients a completely non-surgical way to easily dissolve stubborn fat under the chin, giving you the sculpted look you want without having to go under the knife.
Belkyra is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that absorbs fat when injected into an area. Belkyra destroys unwanted fat cells, tightening the skin and contouring the jaw to deliver a slim and rejuvenated look.
What to expect during your treatment: because the procedure is completely non-invasive there are no incisions, devices or anesthetics required. Your injector will simply place the Belkyra grid over your double chin, before using an ultra fine needle to inject small amounts of medicine directly into the unwanted fat. The entire procedure can comfortably be completed in less then thirty minutes.
Most patients require more then one treatment to completely eliminate their double chin. The number of sessions will depend on the amount of excess fat present on the individual. After each treatment the results of your injections will be seen in 4 to 6 weeks, with a visible reduction in unwanted fat and dramatic improvement in the overall facial appearance.
