Minimally invasive fat reduction treatments are very popular for slimming the submental region, otherwise known as a double chin. With innovations like BELKYRA, our London patients can have a sleeker chin and neck without surgery, scars or downtime.
At our London, Ontario, practice, we receive a lot of questions about various nonsurgical fat reduction treatments. But with so many new products on the market, sometimes patients get overwhelmed by the choices. For submental fat, BELKYRA is one of the best available options. There are many reasons why it remains a top treatment here at DermEffects.
What Is BELKYRA?
BELKYRA is a popular fix to a common problem. Approved by Health Canada and used by celebrities like Khloe Kardashian, BELKYRA is an injectable treatment clinically proven to reduce submental fat—the kind that causes a double chin.
BELKYRA is formulated using a naturally-occurring molecule known as deoxycholic acid, which the body uses to digest fats. When BELKYRA is injected into submental fat, it breaks down the fat cells. The body slowly eliminates these cells through its normal cleansing process. Once destroyed, these fat cells never reform or return.
The treatment itself only takes 20 to 30 minutes. Most patients can see improvement within 2 to 4 treatment sessions, each spaced at least a month apart.
How It Compares
As mentioned before, there are many options in the fat reduction world. Beyond BELKYRA, there are treatments such as CoolSculpting and liposuction. While each of these procedures have their benefits, every patient’s situation is unique. It’s important to do research and talk with a professional about what will work best for you.
When it comes to double chins in particular, BELKYRA remains a standout option. It is cheaper and less invasive than surgical liposuction and leaves no scars. It also has a quicker treatment time and smaller price tag than CoolSculpting in most cases.
Experience That Matters
When it comes to any cosmetic treatment, trusting your provider matters. All of our aesthetic and medical specialists at DermEffects are licensed professionals with years of experience, always happy to answer questions and walk you through the treatment process.
Before deciding on any kind of procedure, be sure to check for credentials and choose a safe, reliable provider. Never bargain shop for treatments. If you’re considering injectables, always find an experienced, credentialed practitioner for your own safety and peace of mind.
