Seeing Double? Submental fat or excess fullness under the chin - aka double chin can impact a broad range of adults including both men and women. Excess submental fullness can be caused by several factors including genetics, weight gain, and aging and it is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. The Elements will be offering Belkrya®, a non-surgical treatment option to target and reduce excess fat under the chin.*
Belkyra® or Kybella®, as it is known in the U.S., is a non-surgical, injectable product that is fast, safe, and effective in reducing under chin fat in 2-6 treatments. Treatments focus on individual patient goals and are highly customisable. HOW DOES IT 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 under the chin, Belkyra® targets the fat cells and once the cells are broken down they can no longer store or accumulate fat.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME? The downtime following a Belkyra treatment varies by individual. Swelling, bruising and redness in the treatment area are typically seen to some degree. The treatment area may feel warm to the touch and the swelling may last several days. If the patient feels self conscious a turtle neck or scarf may cover the area sufficiently. Physical exercise may be resumed as the patient sees fit; the treated area may be swollen for several and any jarring action or jumping or bouncing while swelling is present may be found to be sensitive to the neck. Let your comfort be the guide as to when you resume your normal activities and workouts.
