Very few cosmetic issues are as difficult to address as submental fat just underneath the chin. Even adults in Burnaby who stay at a healthy weight might find themselves struggling with a double chin at some point, and there are no exercises or training techniques that can target fat in that area of the body. Belkyra® is a revolutionary new injectable that uses deoxycholic acid to melt away the stubborn fat in this area.
The Truth About Double Chins
Submental fullness is a complex problem that can be caused by a variety of different factors. For many people, genetics play a major role in this condition. Others develop a double chin after gaining or losing a significant amount of weight over the years. Unlike fat in the stomach or flanks, there are no effective training programs for burning fatty tissue in this area. Submental fullness typically becomes worse as an individual grows older and their skin loses its elasticity. Various creams and ointments might slow the development of a double chin, but most patients will need professional help if they want long-term results.
A Look at Belkyra® Injections
Belkyra® is an alternative to invasive treatments such as liposuction procedures and facelifts. Quite a few years ago, doctors discovered a unique substance inside the intestines known as deoxycholic acid. This particular type of acid is used by the intestines to break down any fatty tissue that is ingested. Over time, doctors realized that they could create concentrated doses of deoxycholic acid for spot treating fat. After being injected into the chin, Belkyra® finds and destroys fat cells in the immediate area. Once the fat cells have been weakened, the patient’s body can then expel them just as if they were being metabolized naturally.
The Benefits of Belkyra®
There are many different reasons why patients from around the world are now choosing Belkyra® over other cosmetic treatments. Each appointment typically takes just minutes to complete, and you won’t have to worry about a lengthy or uncomfortable recovery. Most of our patients in Burnaby usually achieve their cosmetic goals after just two to four treatment sessions.
