Ask Dr. Peirson – How does Belkyra treat a double chin?
– is there a non-surgical solution?
This is a commonly asked question since few areas bother people as much as the appearance of a double chin, technically known as ‘submental fullness.’ It prematurely ages the face, belies one’s true facial shape and size, and is often resistant to diet and exercise.
BELKYRA™ is a Health Canada approved injectable treatment, that when delivered into fat layers underneath the chin, causes the permanent removal of these fat cells resulting in a non-surgical and non-invasive removal of the double chin. BELKYRA™ is a synthetic chemical substance that is produced naturally in the human body in smaller quantities. The active ingredient in BELKYRA™ is deoxycholic acid, which has been used in non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the reduction of localized areas of fat for over a decade, both in Europe and North America.
Typically, between 2 – 4 treatments are needed depending on the severity of the sub-mental fullness, and results are permanent.
