Belkyra / Kybella Injection in Toronto
Fluctuations in weight can also produce a double chin as the skin expands and contracts. Age is another factor in double chin formation as skin becomes less elastic over the years. In these cases, a change can dramatically improve the look.
Redifine your jawline
Known as KYBELLA™ in the United States, BELKYRA™ is an FDA-approved treatment that designed to remove fat from under the chin (i.e., a “double chin”) and redefine your jawline.
For years patients have been bothered by their “double chin” but have had few options to treat this area. The only choice patients had used to be surgery. Now, we have this injectable Belkyra treatment, can treat this submental fullness or “double chin” in a targeted way to dissolve the fat in little down time. Belkyra is manufactured by Allergan cosmetics, the same maker of Botox and Juvederm dermal fillers.
How does it work
Belkyra™ consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid that- when injected into the area – destroy fat cell membranes, releasing the fat and permitting it to be naturally eliminated from the body. This results in a slimming effect on the chin, and the result is permanent once the desired profile is achieved.
Once injected, Belkyra™ is indistinguishable from what is found circulating our body, which makes Belkyra™ a completely safe and highly effective treatment option. Most importantly, each Belkyra™ treatment only takes between 15 to 20 minutes over a set timeline to deliver permanent gradual results. For the majority of patients, the recovery time after a Belkyra™ treatment is minimal. Ice or cold packs can be used for 10 to 20 minutes as needed on treatment areas to reduce any discomfort or swelling.
You can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Generally, we see results within a few weeks for some patients.
At Lunae Clinic, patients interested in Belkyra are examined and evaluated by a plastic surgeon to determine whether they are good candidates for this treatment.
During the consultation session, our plastic surgeon will exam the course and location of significant blood vessels and nerves, muscles, salivary glands and lymph nodes to safely reach the desired result.
