BELKYRA™ Chin Fat Treatment

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 Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary. We offer BELKYRA™ injectable treatment for moderate to severe fullness under the chin.

Is BELKYRA™ for You?

BELKYRA™ is a widely sought-after cosmetic procedure known for its minimally invasive approach to reducing the visibility of a double chin by targeting submental fat.

Its primary component is deoxycholic acid, a naturally existing substance in the body that aids in breaking down stubborn fatty deposits. Here are some of the signs that it might be the right treatment for you:

If you don’t want to go through an intrusive treatment with a lengthy recovery period but yet want to get rid of your double chin, BELKYRA™ could be a wonderful option. This procedure produces good results without the exorbitant expenses, lengthy recovery time, or hazards associated with cosmetic surgery.

Many patients mistakenly believe that BELKYRA™ is a weight loss supplement. However, this therapy is best helpful for people who are at or near their optimal weight and want to get rid of excess fat behind the chin.

If you have mild to moderate skin laxity, this could be a helpful treatment for you. However, if you have extreme laxity or drooping skin under your chin, you should talk to the doctor about other treatments.

How BELKYRA™ Works

BELKYRA™ contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring compound in the body that assists in breaking down and absorbing dietary fat.

When BELKYRA™ is injected into the fat beneath your chin, it triggers the destruction of fat cells. Once these cells are eliminated, they are unable to store or accumulate fat.

Please note that the safety and effectiveness of BELKYRA™ in individuals under 18 years of age have not been established. Additionally, it is not known if BELKYRA™ is safe and effective for areas other than the submental region.

Frequently Asked Questions

BELKYRA™ is an injectable aesthetic product, similar to Juvederm and Botox Cosmetic, which are also manufactured by Allergan. It contains deoxycholic acid and is known as Belkyra Injectable in Canada, where it has received approval from Health Canada. This safe injectable substance has been scientifically proven to effectively reduce and potentially eliminate excess fat under the chin, commonly known as a double chin or submental fullness.

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.

At Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic, treatment is performed by an experienced injector. It begins with an examination, review of your medical history, and consultation.

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.

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
  • You begin to see change within twelve weeks of the first session, with continued improvement for several weeks after the final treatment
  • Both men and women (at least 18 years of age) can benefit from BELKYRA™

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.
