Belkyra™ treatment in Calgary, AB – because one chin is enough
Are you bothered by submental fat – excess fat beneath the chin that blurs your profile and makes you look older or heavier? Ladies, are you weary of hiding it with a turtleneck or scarf? Men, does a tight shirt collar and tie cause irritation? A double chin can be reduced without surgery at Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary, AB. We offer Belkyra™ injectable treatment for moderate to severe fullness under the chin.
How fat dissolving injections work
A double chin can be a hereditary factor, even an aggressive diet and exercise may not result in satisfactory chin fat removal. In the past, medical treatment generally involved surgical removal using a liposuction technique.
Belkyra™ treatment is a different approach.
Your body produces a substance called deoxycholic acid, which helps to break down fats in the digestive tract so they can be absorbed. Belkyra™ is synthetic deoxycholic acid. This prescription medicine is injected into the submental area, where it destroys fat cells.
What to expect from double chin removal
At Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic, treatment is performed by an experienced injector. It begins with an examination, review of your medical history, and consultation. If you are a suitable candidate for Belkyra™, the doctor designs a customized treatment plan.
The quantity and placement of multiple small injections and the number of sessions (three treatments, spaced at least a month apart) are tailored to your needs.
- A typical treatment takes only 15 to 20 minutes.
- The treatment area is numbed, so you remain comfortable.
- You may return to work or other activities after your appointment.
- Some patients experience swelling, bruising, or numbness, but these side effects are temporary. The doctor will talk with you about other less common but possible side effects.
- You begin to see change within twelve weeks of the first session, with continued improvement for several weeks after the final treatment.
- Once treated cells are eliminated by the body’s natural processes, they can no longer store fat, so results are long-lasting. Periodic maintenance treatment is generally NOT needed.
- Both men and women (at least 18 years of age) can benefit from Belkyra™.
