When it comes to addressing stubborn fat under your chin, getting a bit of extra help may be necessary. Effective treatments exist that do not require you to have major surgery. At Aspen Aesthetics, we offer Belkyra™ treatments to get rid of stubborn fat for good. Belkyra™ is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It is an FDA-approved treatment that helps address “submental fullness,” like the dreaded double chin. Contact our team at Aspen Aesthetics today to learn more!
Submental fullness can be due to genetics, weight gain, aging, diet, and exercise alone may not help. Belkyra™ uses a synthetic acid that aids in breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. It is administered as a series of injections into the fat under the chin, and once those cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. This may benefit someone who feels it is hard to get rid of stubborn facial fat and is looking for an alternative that doesn’t result in major surgery. Since this is a non-surgical treatment, it may be a great option.
Belkyra™ is FDA-cleared for fat cells under the chin’s submental area. When injected, Belkyra™ effectively destroys fat cells, easing the appearance of submental fat that has accumulated under your chin. This injectable treatment results in a noticeable reduction in fullness and a more defined profile. Once destroyed, chin fat can no longer be stored or accumulated at the injection site, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goals. If you struggle with excess fat and skin under your jaw, Belkyra™ can help reduce its size and quantity. Contact your Aspen skin specialist today to learn more about how this may benefit you.
Some common side effects of Belkyra™ include swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treated area. The swelling will continue to reduce over the next few weeks. After the Belkyra™ treatment, you will have some temporary bruising which will subside typically within one month. The number of treatment sessions will vary from patient to patient based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals. Most patients require a minimum of 2 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart to achieve their desired results and report seeing results after three months.
