This non-surgical method of reducing fat beneath the chin is a great option for improving definition of the jawline. Men and women who desire a sharper, more defined jawline or who are looking to eliminate the appearance of a double chin could benefit from Belkyra.
Belkyra works by breaking up and destroying fat cells in the areas in which it has been injected. Non-surgical and minimally invasive, it leaves the surface of the skin untouched and unaffected. It can provide an effective and permanent alternative to chin liposuction if sufficient treatment sessions are undertaken.
How Does Belkyra Work?
The active ingredient in Belkyra is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which destroys fat cells beneath the chin. Belkyra is the first injectable treatment approved by Health Canada as safe and effective for the reduction of submental fullness (double chin).
To achieve the best aesthetic results, it is recommended that Belkyra injections are performed in a series—typically 2-4 appointments spaced about a month apart. At each session, a little bit more fat will be dissolved away until the desired results are achieved.
The destroyed fat cells are processed out of your body just like dietary waste and do not come back. While it is possible to accumulate new fat cells, particularly if you gain significant weight, most people preserve their results and promote tighter skin contours by maintaining a stable body weight.
