Are you unhappy with your facial profile? If you feel that you have the look of a double chin even though you are not overweight or if you have fat around your jowls that is making you look older, you may benefit from lipolysis injections. This is a procedure that uses a special liquid medication that is injected into fat cells to make them dissolve, smooth out and be reabsorbed by the body. At DermaNuva Skin & Health Care in Alberta, we choose Belkyra® to treat submental fulness and to help you achieve the facial profile of your dreams.
Belkyra® is an FDA-approved treatment option endorsed by Khloe Kardashian, who has become a spokesperson for it. It is becoming an increasingly popular option for treating submental, or below-the-chin, fat and for reshaping the area around the jawline.
You may be a good candidate for lipolysis injections if you have extra fat located beneath your chin or across your jawline. You may feel embarrassed by this extra fat, and you may even feel that it takes away from your youthfulness. Belkyra® is a good option if you are at or close to your goal weight and if increased exercise or dieting does nothing to eliminate this extra fat.
The active ingredient that is used for this type of lipolysis treatment is deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and is used by your own body to absorb dietary fat. When injected into actual pockets of fat cells, it causes the cells to break down and be destroyed. You will likely need a series of treatments spaced at least one month apart to see any noticeable results.
During your treatment time at our office in Alberta, you will be kept totally comfortable. This procedure is quite quick, and you should have no major side effects afterward. The results of Belkyra® should be permanent as long as you stay at a healthy weight. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot return in the future, and the area cannot store new fat.
At DermaNuva Skin & Health Care in Olds, Alberta, we can help you take control of your profile by using lipolysis injections to dissolve fat cells around your chin. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more!
