Getting Rid of Your Double Chin on Your Lunch Break?
Are you ready to get rid of your double chin? You are not alone! At the Medispa Institute, it is one of the most common complaints that we hear and, for too many years, there were no good solutions. Today, however, there is an incredible option available.
Belkyra , or Kybella as it’s known in some countries, is an exciting option that will eliminate saggy skin and create a sleek look. This means that you can get rid of your double chin with no surgery and no downtime.
Think it might be right for you? Here’s what you need to know.
What Is Double Chin Treatment?
Belkyra is a non-surgical, permanent treatment that takes less than an hour. It eliminates the fat from under the chin with no incisions, stiches, scars, or downtime. Belkyra uses deoxycholic acid to eliminate fat cells.
Deoxycholic acid is a totally safe drug that works by simply disconnecting fat cells. After this, your body takes care of the rest. Once the fat cells have been freed, they will be washed away from your body like a toxin. It is a completely natural and safe process.
What Is It Like to Get a Belkyra Treatment
When you come in to visit the Medispa Institute, you will be given a professional assessment so that a customised treatment plan can be created for you and your unique needs.
Our resident expert, Dr Turner, will recommend the ideal number of Belkyra treatments for you then he will create a treatment timetable to meet your goals. Before your treatment, Dr Turner will give you an in-depth overview of what to expect.
Each treatment will take less than an hour. Before beginning your Belkyra treatment, local anaesthesia or icepacks will be used to numb the treatment area so that you won’t experience any discomfort during the treatment.
The fattiest area under the chin will be chosen as the treatment area. In this area, you will be given around 20 small injections. This will be done over 15 to 20 minutes. Each one of the injections contain 0.2 mL deoxycholic acid. The injection sites will be spaced out over 1cm intervals across your skin.
The treatment area and injection sites are established with exact symmetry to ensure that an even amount of fat cells are targeted for a smooth and uniform look.
After Your Belkyra Treatment
Most people find that two to four treatments will give them their ideal results. When you are planning treatments, it is best to space them at least one month apart.
After your treatment, the fat cells under your skin will start dissolving within 15 minutes. This will start your body on the slow process of expeling the fat cells. While each patient is different, the majority of people find that they see results after three to four weeks.
