Fullness under the chin or the esthetic term Sub-mental fat (SMF). Whatever it is we don’t want it. Causes such as aging, genetics or weight changes all contribute to this unwanted pouch we call the Double chin. In some individuals, it doesn’t matter how much you diet or exercise, the fullness in this area may not go away. Belkyra, Health Canada approved, is an injectable treatment that can improve the appearance of fullness in the area under the chin. It targets and eliminates fat cells when injected into the area. Within a number of treatment sessions Belkyra will gradually improve the appearance and once desired results are achieved, re treatment may not be needed. Your doctor will customize your treatment based on your treatment goals. Many patients treated with Belkyra experienced visible improvement of their chin profile in 2-4 sessions.
FYI: Belkyra is also a product of Allergan and that means you can collect Brilliant Distinctions Points on this treatment too!
Once the area has been marked off with the skin marking grid, Belkyra is typically given in a 15-20 minute in office treatment session. Your doctor will administer a series of injections in the area under your chin at each treatment session.
For most people, downtime is minimal and occurs most commonly after the first treatment session. When scheduling your treatments, keep your social plans and work commitments in mind.
As with any other injectable, you may experience side effects with Belkyra. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, and numbness. Most patients experienced mild to moderate side effects and decreased with subsequent treatments.
