Belkyra™ (Double Chin Solution)
BelkyraTM is a non-invasive treatment option for reducing and eliminating the “double chin.” Concept Medical in Ottawa is excited to be offering BelkyraTM, a non-surgical treatment to help improve the contour and appearance of the chin and neck. Fortunately, the results from BelkyraTM are long-lasting, and future treatments are not usually required following your initial treatment series.
WHAT IS BELKYRA ?
Belkyra (known as Kybella® in the United States) reduces the fat under your chin to redefine your jawline and slim your chin and neck. Belkyra contains deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance. When carefully placed into the fat under the chin, Belkyra (known as Kybella® in the United States) breaks down the unwanted fat. The excess fat is then dissolved and eliminated by your body. Belkyra offers an option to improve your double chin and contour your jawline without surgery. At Concept Medical in Ottawa, all Belkyra treatments are provided exclusively by our qualified physicians and never delegated to non-physician staff members.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR BELKYRA ?
Ideal Belkyra candidates are men and women over the age of 18, who have considerable and bothersome submental fullness. There are many causes for a submental fullness (known as a double chin) including genetics, aging, or recent weight gain. Regardless of the cause, studies show that about 80% of men and women who have excessive fat under their chin area are bothered by it. Fortunately there is a non-surgical, long-lasting treatment available in Ottawa to help eliminate your double chin.
WHAT DOES BELKYRA TREATMENT INVOLVE?
The first step to your Belkyra treatment in Ottawa is a consultation with one of our physicians. Your detailed consultation ensures your Belkyra treatment is tailored to your desired results, while maximising your safety. Prior to a Belkyra treatment, an area is marked under your chin with an erasable white pencil. An ice pack is then provided to help chill the skin prior to Belkyra. Anesthetic or freezing is not needed prior to Belkyra. Belkyra treatments at Concept Medical in Ottawa consist of a number of small and precise injections into the fat layer under the chin. A Belkyra treatment takes only a few minutes to complete and is very tolerable. Following Belkyra, you may return to your normal daily activities immediately without any downtime. On average, 2-4 treatment sessions are required to see optimal results.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY BELKYRA TREATMENT?
Belkyra at Concept Medical in Ottawa is very tolerable. Using an ice pack both before and after Belkyra helps to minimize discomfort. Following treatment, patients often experience some mild fullness and tenderness of the treated area as Belkyra works to dissolve the unwanted fat. Over the following month, Belkyra will continue to melt the fat in the treated area. Most patients require more than one Belkyra treatment for noticeable results. However, some patients notice an improvement in their ‘double chin’ within weeks following their first Belkyra session.
WHO WILL PERFORM MY BELKYRA TREATMENT?
At Concept Medical in Ottawa only our experienced and trained physicians will perform your Belkyra treatment. Belkyra treatments and other cosmetic injectables, such as Juvéderm (filler) and Botox, are never performed by a non-physician staff member.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS FROM BELKYRA LAST?
Once Belkyra destroys the fat under your chin, the treated fat cells are eliminated and another series of treatments is not usually necessary. Most patients require 2-4 treatments, with a maximum of 6 treatments for their desired results.
