Many clients struggling with a double chin find that it can be difficult to reduce, despite training and diet. A double chin often has nothing to do with body weight, but more to do with hormones or heredity. This can be incredibly frustrating; a double chin can make you look older, thicker and unhealthy.
The active ingredient in Belkyra® is a synthetic non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule already in the body. Deoxycholic acid is a digestive enzyme that degrades fat from the food we eat. When the product is injected into the fat beneath the chin, the fat degrades, destroying the cell membrane, which prevents the fat cells from coming back.
Belkyra® treatment offers a number of benefits, such as:
- Quick treatment time
- Long-lasting results
- No scalpels, sutures or stitches
- Minimal downtime
- Proven safe and effective
- Health Canada-approved
