Belkyra™ Is The Non-Surgical Way To Get Rid Of Your Double Chin

Many people, regardless of gender, are self-conscious of their double chin. Although double chins are often associated with excess weight, they can actually be genetic or hormonal too. Double chins can be exceptionally difficult for people to get rid of, as fat under the chin and jaw cannot typically be reduced with healthy eating and exercise. If a person wants to reduce their double chin, they may feel that surgery is the only option. This option can be unappealing, as surgery is very invasive, takes recovery time, and can seem like an extreme option. With Belkyra™, you can reduce the appearance of your double chin without the need for surgery.

Belkyra™ Versus Surgery

What Is Belkyra™?
Belkyra™ is a type of non-surgical treatment that helps to reduce the appearance of a double chin. This  Health Canada-approved injectable treatment permanently dissolves fat under the chin to create a sharper jawline and a more satisfying appearance. Belkyra™ uses a naturally-occurring molecule in the body called deoxycholic acid, which breaks down fat cells. The body then processes these fat cells and expels them naturally. Once fat cells are gone, they cannot grow back, although fat cells outside of the treatment area can expand and alter the look of your chin.

Surgical Double Chin Procedures
Before Belkyra™ treatment became available, the only way to alter your double chin was through surgery. To reduce a double chin without Belkyra™, people tend to use liposuction, a facelift, or a neck lift. These surgical procedures will take a while to recover from. For liposuction, a small incision is made so that a device can be inserted under the skin to remove fat. In a face or neck lift, fat as well as sagging skin can be removed. Sometimes the neck muscles will also be tightened to improve neck and face shape. Since Belkyra™ doesn’t involve surgery, it is not as invasive as these procedures and it takes less recovery time. It is important to note that while Belkyra™ can be used to replace liposuction treatments, it cannot offer the same skin tightening and removal of excess skin that a neck or facelift can. Belkyra™ is designed to eliminate fat, not to alter skin in any way.

How To Maintain Belkyra™ Results
Although the results of your Belkyra™ treatment are permanent and the fat cells that were removed are not coming back, the look of your chin may change over time. This may be influenced by weight changes, age, and even sun exposure. For the best results, maintain a relatively consistent weight and always apply sunscreen to your neck and face before going outside.

If you want to improve your appearance without the use of surgery, consider the benefits of facial fillers for different areas and other popular non-surgical treatments.

Q: Who is eligible for Belkyra™?
A: You may not be currently eligible for Belkyra™ if you are:

  • Currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Have an infection in the treatment area.
  • Suffer from certain medical conditions.
  • Have trouble swallowing or breathing problems.
  • Are below the age of 18 years.

It is also currently suggested to use Belkyra™ only as a double-chin treatment and if you are interested in eliminating fat from larger areas of the body, it is recommended to use other treatments, such as CoolSculpting®

Q: How many treatments of Belkyra™ will I need for my desired results?
A: One treatment might be sufficient to achieve your goals, however, your specialist may recommend a series of 2-4 sessions to obtain your desired outcome.

Q: Can I get rid of my double chin through exercise?
A: Despite how many online articles you might find about “chin exercises” there is actually no scientific evidence that chin exercises help to reduce or get rid of a double chin. Although your weight may affect your overall appearance, including neck and chin fat, submental fat related to genetics, hormones, or aging cannot be reduced with exercise.
