Eliminate Your Double Chin with Belkyra

You can hide other areas of the body but you can’t hide a double chin. Typically when we gain weight it is reflected in the facial area, but the face and neck are also the hardest places to lose fat from as there is no way to tone or trim that area… until now. If this is a problem that plagues you, Belkyra may be the solution for you to say goodbye to your double chin!

The medical terminology for a double chin is submental fat. Developing a double chin is sometimes genetic, or can be part of the aging process, however, it can also appear because of fluctuations in body weight. Once a double chin has appeared there is a loss of skin elasticity, which makes it more difficult to get rid of fat.

How Do You Get A Double Chin?

  • The way your body metabolizes and deposits fat is genetically determined. If someone in your family has a double chin, you have a higher probability of getting one.
  • A double chin can also appear because of aging. When you age it is natural to lose muscle tone. When you lose muscle tone in the area of the neck and chin, the skin loosens giving a double chin appearance.
  • Another cause is being overweight. This can lead to accumulation of excess fat underneath the chin. Often a double chin and facial fat remain even after weight loss in other parts of your body. It is disheartening to lose weight through exercise and dieting only to continue to struggle with a double chin.

You Can Get Rid of Your Double Chin

There is now a permanent solution for losing double chin fat that exercise and diet have not been successful in eliminating. Belkyra is a fat dissolving substance which is injected into the submental fullness underneath your chin. Belkyra is a product approved by Health Canada that conveniently and effectively reduces double chin fat.

What is Belkyra?

Belkyra is deoxycholic acid, found naturally within the body, which when injected under the chin helps the body destroy and absorb fat cells that are deposited there. Belkyra is a non-surgical method approved by Health Canada to effectively lose a double chin.

After discussing your treatment goals, our doctor and injector nurse will customize your Belkyra treatment. Belkyra is administered as a series of injections in a specified area underneath the chin. It can only be administered by a medical professional. Most people experience the desired results with 1-3 sessions, but you can receive up to 6 treatment sessions. Each session lasts about 30 minutes and takes place six weeks apart to allow evaluation of the effectiveness and determine if further treatment is required.

Individual results of Belkyra may vary, and specific medical outcomes or permanent, long-term results for individuals cannot be guaranteed.

Is Belkyra Worth It?

Belkyra has many advantages over other methods such as surgery:

Quick: Belkyra is not time-consuming. It is an in-office procedure that takes about 30 minutes for a session. You can return to normal activities right after the procedure. You will experience some ‘numbing effect’ in the area for approximately 4-6 weeks, but nothing that will limit your activities as with other more invasive surgical options.

Cost Effective: Compared to expensive facial surgery the cost of Belkyra is very attractive, and unlike the other methods, you don’t have to spend anything on additional medications or accessories. Most people receive the desired effect in 1-3 sessions.

Health Canada Approved and Administered by Plastic Surgeon

Belkyra or deoxycholic acid was approved in 2015 by Health Canada for use in mesotherapy as a fat dissolving drug. It is distributed by Allergan, a well-known brand and reputable cosmetic procedure supplier. Belkyra has been rigorously tested and has produced many positive results for patients.
