You may already feel that you’ve gained your holiday pounds, even though we still have a few holidays and more parties to go to. And while some of us may have started taking precautions to eat healthy early, others simply can’t rid themselves of stubborn fat no matter what it seems they try.
This may be in part because of a genetic predisposition towards under-chin fat, or a double-chin. If you still have a stubborn double-chin, no matter how often you exercise or how many healthy foods you eat, Belkyra could be the answer. Keep reading to learn about Belkyra and how this revolutionary treatment can help banish your double-chin.
What is Belkyra?
Belkyra utilizes a cosmetic injectable instead of invasive surgery to help remove unwanted fat underneath the chin. Belkyra’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is an amazing solution that allows your body break down stubborn fat without surgery or extensive downtime.
The Belkyra solution is injected across the neck and underneath the chin in regularly spaced intervals, where it goes to work breaking down unwelcome fat. That’s all: there are no incisions or surgeries to worry about.
A series of injections are applied across the neck area over a short appointment. The solution gets to work, breaking down those stubborn fat cells. The fat cells are removed from your body along with normal waste, through the lymph system.
Timing is important when you consider your Belkyra treatments, so plan ahead if you have weddings or parties to attend. It is not uncommon for patients to experience swelling underneath the neck as the Belkyra solution processes: it simply means that the solution is working and breaking down fat cells. Depending on your concerns, we may recommend that you come back for a follow-up appointment or two.
How until I see results?
You may experience swelling that increases slightly for 24 hours after your appointment. This swelling may last a few days or a few weeks, depending on your body and how the solution is reacting with your cells.
