About

Double Chin Treatment Kelowna

Double chin treatment, more formally known as Belkyra™, is a deoxycholic acid and naturally occurring molecule in the body, is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also known as “double chin.”  Belkyra assists in breaking down fat cells or adipocytes, thereby decreasing the fullness under the chin.

Belkyra Kelowna FAQs

Is Belkyra™ right for me?

Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common condition, impacting a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors including age, genetics and weight gain. It is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.

If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or “double chin” – and people are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.

If you are concerned about your “double chin,” then Belkyra™ at Cerulean Medical Institute is the treatment for you.

How does Belkyra™ work?

The active ingredient in Belkyra™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Belkyra™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

How will I feel during my Belkyra™ treatment?

Patients describe mild discomfort in the form of warmth as the fat cells are being destroyed.

What results can I expect?

Fat destruction beneath the chin area with improved chin profile and contour, four to six weeks after your treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Together, we will customize your Belkyra™ treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions. When injected into the fat under your chin, Belkyra™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the cosmetic response is achieved, re-treatment with Belkyra™ is not expected.

How much does treatment with Belkyra™ cost?

Determining the cost of Belkyra™ double chin treatment in Kelowna depends on a number of factors, including your desired results and the number of treatments required to achieve those results. The Belkyra™ Kelowna experts at Cerulean Medical Institute will take all the time you need to help you understand what is involved in determining the cost of your treatment before your therapy is underway.

How do I prepare for my Belkyra™ treatment?

Before receiving Belkyra™ treatment, patients with a history of herpes or cold sores should receive appropriate treatment. Please remove all makeup, lotions, deodorants and oil from the area to be treated with mild soap and water.

What happens after my Belkyra™ treatment?

Apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed. Immediately following your treatment, you are advised to avoid exercise and hot baths. We also recommend avoiding massaging or rubbing the area for 24 hours after the Belkyra™ has been injected.
