A well-defined chin and jawline are classic signs of beauty. Accordingly, the accumulation of fullness or a double chin (submental fat) is a concern for many people. This can be the result of weight gain, but very often it is simply a matter of genetic predisposition.
According to data from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) in 2015, fat under the chin/neck was one of the top troublesome conditions for patients, with 67% reporting it as being bothersome for them.
An injectable solution from the company that has brought us Botox cosmetic is a new and effective treatment to address this common concern. Belkyra™ is the first and only non-surgical injectable treatment. It permanently destroys fat cells, eliminating fullness under the chin.
Belkyra™ is an individually tailored treatment.
• Each treatment is customized.
• During the treatment, the area is mapped out according to the patient’s anatomy. After a topical numbing cream is applied to the area, several small injections are distributed to the treatment area.
• Afterward, the client may expect some swelling, tingling or numbness in the area for a few days.
• Belkyra™ works by breaking down the fat cells. The body then gradually eliminates these destroyed cells over a span of 6 to 8 weeks.
• While more than one treatment may be necessary to achieve the final result, visible results are often seen within 2 to 4 weeks.
