Belkyra: Wave Goodbye to the Double Chin
In the era of smartphones and selfies, gone are the days of trying to hide the fullness under the chin with scarves & beards, painful neck & shoulder posturing and not to forget awkward angling of the smartphone or tablet. Make way for Belkyra ™, an advanced non-invasive anti-aging treatment option to improve your chin profile and help you turn back the clock.
In early 2016, Health Canada approved Belkyra ™, a quick and easy in office injectable treatment for reducing submental fullness. Fullness under the chin can be influenced by multiple factors, including genetics, weight gain and aging and sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the fullness in this area may never go away.
This innovative chin-reducing product is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down fat and aids the body to absorb the fat. This procedure is customized to help you achieve your submental fullness treatment goals and once they are achieved, re-treatment is not expected.
Fullness underneath the chin makes us look older and heavier. In women, fullness under the chin widens the lower third of the face and often doesn’t correlate with a youthful or attractive appearance. In men, fullness under the chin can diminish a masculine, powerful look and detracts from the appearance of a strong jawline. For both men and women, fullness under the chin can lead to feelings of negative self-impression, even among younger adult patients.
The photos illustrate the fantastic effect of Belkyra™ after only one treatment; rendering a younger, less heavy chin profile.
In the pursuit of happiness and overall contentment, the majority of us would like to look and feel fantastic both physically and mentally. The art of beautification is to correct the correctable and enhance our natural attributes, thus illustrating the best versions of ourselves at that given point in time.
