Double chins, or otherwise described as excess volume under the chin affects many men and women regardless of age or weight. Excess fat below the chin may be a result of aging, genetics or weight gain. Often exercise and diet are not enough to diminish the double chin effect. Double chin or excess volume under the chin, is one of the most prevalent issues people have about their own appearance, in both men and women. The Belkyra® treatment is a non-surgical option to target the area of unwanted volume underneath the chin. This treatment can help you achieve the defined profile that you so desire.
Most patients will see the desired improvements within 2-4 treatments, but some may require up to 6 to achieve their desired results. Please note, the photographs on this page show excellent results but results vary between individuals. Once you have achieved your desired results, additional treatments may not be needed as the results are maintained for at least 4 years.
The most common side effects associated with double-chin reducing injections include: pain at the injection site, swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, tingling, formation of small areas of hardness, warmth and discolouration, and itching around the treatment area. Such side effects are temporary and resolve with time.
