Double chins are stubborn problems that refuse to go away from your life. Usually, you will suddenly notice some amount of fat under your chin one day, and it will change your complete image of yourself. You will never be able to look at yourself the same. Suddenly These devils start popping up everywhere, in every photo, every selfie. You may start feeling extremely self-conscious with yourself as a result. Belkyra injections may be the latest and most effective solution you need to get rid of your stubborn double chin, and bring back your older confidence.

Several things can cause double chins to appear on your lower face :

  • Sudden weight gain
  • Sudden weight loss resulting in the skin becoming loose
  • Your posture throughout the day
  • Saggy and loose skin due to age

Belkyra Injections for Double chin removal have been approved by the FDA in 2015, and other organisations like TGA, CE and EMCO. Kythera Biopharmaceuticals’ drug (Belkyra) has been acquired by Allergan. This treatment came into the market as an alternative to procedures like liposuction or surgery. Belkyra uses a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a salt found in the human bile that speeds fat break-down and destroys the fat on cellular level. After being injected into the fat of your double chin area, this osmotic drug does the same thing. The broken down fat is now a micro waste and, over time it gets cleared into the lymphatic and circulatory systems by special immunologic cells. This whole process of fat break-down happens gradually over the span of 3 – 4 weeks. 

Now that you know a little bit about how the Belkyra injections work internally, let’s look at some other facts associated with this treatment :

  • Most patients do not get any kind of scarring from this procedure, but in the rare cases, scars are still very short lived and go away in a little bit of time.
  • This treatment is not appropriate for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or people with skin infections. Our experts here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors can tell you if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
  • This treatment will promote a healthy lifestyle for you, as you may have to hold a stable weight in order to stop any fat from accumulating under your chin again.
  • Your skin may be sensitive to touch initially upto 24 hours after your session. You will not feel any pain during the treatment since your lower face will be numbed using an ointment before-hand.
  • Immediately after the treatment, your chin area will start swelling up and will continue to do so until the 2nd day. This is normal, and a sign that your fat is being broken down. The swelling will gradually decrease within a few weeks.
  • You may need anywhere between 2 – 6 sessions spread over a span of a year to see the complete results.
  • The results from Belkyra injections in melbroune are permanent. If you continue maintaining a healthy lifestyle, your double chin may never appear again.
  • This is a complete non-invasive non-surgical treatment. It is also relatively risk free and no type of incision is made on your face.
  • With very minimal downtime, you can expect to get back to your regular lifestyle almost immediately
