Double Chin Reduction (Belkyra/Kybella)
*At Philosophy of Beauty, we offer the very latest medical treatment approved for removing the dreaded, “double chin”. Belkyra is a non-surgical, innovative treatment for people who want to transform the appearance of their chin profile.*
*A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common problem for many people. A pocket of fat which forms under the chin and is resistant to diet or exercise can be extremely frustrating. Although a double chin is often associated with weight gain, a person does not have to be overweight to have one. The appearance of a double chin can cause a person to look older and heavier than they are. In the past, the only effective method of fat removal from this tricky area was submental liposuction surgery.*
*While it is known as Kybella in the United States, Belkyra is a Health Canada approved injectable product that can reduce moderate submental fat and redefine the jawline, working to effectively eliminate a double chin without the need for surgery. Belkyra has created a lot of buzz since it recently came to the market and we are excited to offer it to our clients. This revolutionary innovation in aesthetic medicine is currently the only non-surgical option available to effectively and permanently destroy submental fat.*
Benefits of Belkyra/Kybella?
- Treatment with Belkyra is relatively quick with clients usually completing treatment in under 30 minutes.
- Visible reduction of a double chin, improved facial profile and a more defined, sculpted neck.
- It is minimally invasive, using extremely fine needles and leaving no scars.
- Permanent results - Once the desired aesthetic is achieved, maintenance treatments are not usually expected. This is because once the fat cells are destroyed, the cell material is removed from the body, not just decreased in size as with typical weight loss.
Frequently Asked Questions
*The fat which is treated is usually dissolved within 10-15 minutes of injection, however, swelling which usually develops for the first few days after treatment may take up to 3-4 weeks to subside. Settled results appear within 4-6 weeks and less product may be required for each subsequent session.*
