Non-surgical cosmetic treatments like cosmetic neuromodulators and dermal fillers have become popular among women and men. These minimally invasive procedures can make a difference in facial appearances and self-confidence. Belkyra, also known as Kybella in the United States, is a relatively new cosmetic therapy designed to eliminate stubborn submental fat under the chin.
Many people in Vancouver, no matter how much they exercise or pay attention to their diet, struggle to get rid of the dreaded double chin. That’s because genetics play a significant role in its presence. Belkyra destroys unwanted fat cells via a comfortable and convenient cosmetic injection. As a result, it has become increasingly popular among many, including celebrities like Khloe Kardashian, who was a spokesperson for the brand.
What is Belkyra
Belkyra is an injectable solution that targets submental fat around the neck and under the chin. This fullness that contributes to the double chin can be a genetic effect developing with age. The Belkyra formulation consists of deoxycholic acid to target unwanted fat beneath the chin. Benefits include its convenience, with short treatment sessions offering no downtime.
Before this injectable treatment, surgical liposuction & Coolsculpting were the only procedures to eliminate a double chin. Now patients embrace this new treatment technology because of its incredible effectiveness, safety, and convenience.
Who is Belkyra for?
Women and men from age eighteen to sixty-five who are bothered with excess fat beneath their chin are prime candidates for Belkyra injections. In addition, patients who have had surgery in the area or built-up scar tissue should disclose that information to their doctor. This may decrease the effectiveness of the injections.
How Does Belkyra Work?
The injections help eliminate fat cells found under the chin. This chin sculpting treatment is an effective product containing deoxycholic acid. When injected in the target area, the product breaks down fat cells, which are then flushed from the body.
Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance that aids in digesting and absorbing dietary fat. Belkyra harnesses this capability in its formula, developed to be injected in precise locations for reshaping the neckline and chin.
What to Expect
If you’re considering Belkyra, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Kabiri. She will mark the injection sites for best results, then apply a numbing cream for comfort. The injection zone is marked accurately using anatomical markers for guidance.
You can receive up to fifty injections per session, depending on the amount of submental fat present. Dr. Kabiri will administer the treatment every 6-8 weeks, up to four treatments, or when the patient achieves their cosmetic goal. Therefore, the number of injections and treatment sessions vary from patient to patient.
