Belkyra™ (Double Chin Solution)
BELKYRA™ (Double Chin Solution)
BELKYRA™ is a non-invasive treatment option for reducing and eliminating the “double chin.” Concept Medical, in Ottawa, is excited to be offering BELKYRA™ , a non-surgical treatment to help improve the contour and appearance of the chin and neck. Fortunately, the results from BELKYRA™ are long-lasting, and future treatments are not usually required following your initial treatment series.
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.
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 double chin including genetics, aging, and 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 and long-lasting treatment available in Ottawa to help eliminate your double chin.
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 required, as treatment consists 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.
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 treatment for noticeable results. However, some patients notice an improvement in their ‘double chin’ within weeks following their first BELKYRA™ session.
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.
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.
