At YourSkinRN in Kitchener, Ontario, many of our clients are concerned by the appearance of fat bands around their neck and excess fat beneath their chin. However, an invasive medical procedure is not right for everyone. For this reason, we are proud to offer Belkyra as an alternative to liposuction, a facelift, or a neck lift.
Before and After Results
What Is Belkyra?
Known in the United States as Kybella, Belkyra is a Health Canada-approved chin and neck contouring treatment made from deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a chemical compound found naturally in the gut.
This chemical compound usually breaks down dietary fat that passes through the digestive system to your gut. When injected into your neck or beneath your chin, it will consume the excess fat cells in that region.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
During your initial consultation, we will assess the current volume of fat around your neck and chin. We will also discuss your aesthetic goals to determine how many treatments you will probably need.
Most of our clients need only two to three treatment sessions. However, you may need up to six treatment sessions if you have a significant amount of excess fat.
4 Benefits of Deoxycholic Acid Injections
During treatment, you will experience neither pain nor discomfort. The needle used is so fine there is no need for a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment site. Depending on the extent of fat you have in the area, your session may take between 15 and 20 minutes. During this time, several injections are made at strategic locations.
2. No Downtime or Recovery
One of the most compelling benefits of Belkyra is there is no need for any downtime or recovery. Simply come in during your lunch break and go back to work like nothing ever happened. We are open from 9:30 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday. If you only have a 30-minute lunch break, we are also available by appointment on Saturdays.
3. Permanent Results
Another compelling benefit of deoxycholic acid injections is that the results of treatment are permanent. Once the deoxycholic acid destroys the excess fat in the treatment site, no new fat cells can be grown. This means that even if you gain weight in your neck and chin region in the future, it will be much less noticeable than it is now.
4. Not Just for the Overweight and Obese
One of the most common misconceptions of this treatment is that it is only for people with significant excess weight around the neck and chin region. This is not the case. In fact, many people suffer from submental fullness and loose skin of the chin and neck due to aging, genetics, smoking, and other factors.
