Is That Double Chin Bothering You?

Did you know that according to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by fullness under the chin (67%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (69%)?

In fact, the condition, which can make you look older and heavier than you really are, even has a name. It’s called submental fullness, otherwise known as fullness under the chin or “double chin” and it can be very difficult to get rid of. Because fullness under the chin can be influenced by multiple factors – such as genetics, weight gain, and ageing – sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the fullness in this area may not go away.

Belkyra is a new treatment option that is now available to target and eliminate fullness under the chin. Health Canada has approved a quick and easy injectable treatment completed in office within 15-20 minutes. This procedure is customized to the unique needs of the patient to achieve the desired submental fullness treatment goals.

Belkyra is comprised of Deoxycholic Acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in our bodies that works to absorb fat. When injected into specific areas under the chin, it permanently destroys unwanted fat cells, tightening the skin and contouring the jaw to deliver a rejuvenated look.
