Other skin tightening procedures are often combined to target saggy jowls & side of the neck for further definition of chin & jawline.
Belkyra is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body as part of the digestive system. While this acid generally aids in the body’s digestive processes, it also has a secondary benefit, which is its ability to break down fat cell membranes. A Belkyra injection specifically targets submental fat, which is that located under the chin. Belkyra breaks down the cell membranes of the submental fat cells, which allows the fat to be absorbed and then naturally eliminated from the body through natural processes. A cell that is destroyed does not regenerate; in other words, the effect is permanent. Often one requires more than one treatment session & it is offered at monthly intervals.
The result of this non-invasive procedure is a leaner, redefined jawline. The recovery process following the procedure is generally quick, with mild swelling and redness often gone within few days. Aesthetic medicine focuses on providing the patient with their desired outcomes while also staying within the bounds of medical safety and keeping in mind the patient’s welfare. By using an acid found naturally in the body, Belkyra meets this standard by using natural substances to bring about change in appearance.
This procedure is not designed for everyone with a double neck. Patients with prior surgery in the neck & other medical conditions are excluded from this treatment.
