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.
