BELKYRA is a safe and effective injectable treatment. The procedure a leading nonsurgical option for submental fullness today, and when performed by a skilled and trained medical specialist, the double chin treatment helps to reduce the fat layer below the chin for a refined and rejuvenated jawline.
The injections are composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a fat-metabolizing agent that is found naturally in our bodies. Once injected, this substance works to break down the membranes of targeted fat cells, causing them to collapse and be processed naturally by the body.
What are the common areas Belkyra is applied to?
WHAT IS THE ACTUAL PROCESS?
Treatments are quick and simple, similar to other our other injectable service. We begin by cleansing your neck and providing a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort. Next, we plan where we want to administer the injections by making small marks on your skin. Most people require several injections, placed about a centimeter apart, for optimal results. We perform the injections quickly: The whole process takes only about 30 minutes!
HOW LONG DOES THE EFFECT LAST?
Your results can last indefinitely. While treated fat cells are broken down and flushed out by the body, other fat cells that remain in your body can still enlarge or shrink as your weight shifts. So, we advise maintaining a stable weight to help you enjoy your improved contours for many years to come..
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS AFTER TREATMENT?
Patients typically see a gradual reduction of fullness in the area over a period of 2 to 4 weeks following each treatment, eventually resulting in the desired facial profile. Some patients may also notice skin tightening under the chin following treatment, resulting in a more youthful, contoured neckline. We recommend 2 - 6 sessions spaced 8 weeks apart
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER TREATMENT?
There is very little downtime associated with BELKYRA, and patients can expect to return to their normal activities immediately following treatment. Patients will experience swelling at the injection site that can last 2-3 weeks. Tenderness and bruising is normal around the injection site, which should dissipate within a few days.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
