Reduction of Double Chin Using Belkyra Injections
Treatment Area: Submental region (double chin)
A patient presented with concerns about aesthetic submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” The patient expressed a desire for a non-surgical intervention to address this issue.
The primary objective was to reduce the appearance of the submental fullness to enhance the contour of the jawline and improve the patient’s profile aesthetics.
Treatment Plan and Administration
The patient was scheduled for a series of four Belkyra injection sessions, with each session spaced four weeks apart. Belkyra, a formulation designed for the reduction of submental fat, was chosen for its minimally invasive application and its efficacy in targeting localized fat deposits.
- Session 1 to 4: Each session involved a Belkyra injection targeting the submental fat. The patient was injected with a specified dosage as per the standardized protocol for Belkyra treatments.
- Each session was priced at $600, totaling $2400 for the entire treatment course.
After four sessions, the patient showed significant reduction in submental fullness, resulting in a more defined jawline and an improved profile view.
Before and After Comparison:
- Pre-Treatment: Noticeable submental fullness, lacking definition between the neck and chin.
- Post-Treatment: Marked reduction in submental fat, enhanced aesthetic contour of the jawline, and an aesthetically pleasing profile.
The patient reported satisfaction with the outcomes, citing improvements in self-image and confidence. There were no reports of severe adverse effects, and the patient tolerated the treatment well.
The use of Belkyra injections in this case demonstrates a successful non-surgical approach to treating submental fullness. The treatment protocol resulted in a desirable cosmetic outcome with a relatively simple and cost-effective procedure.
This case highlights the effectiveness of Belkyra injections in reducing submental fullness. Given the satisfactory results and patient’s positive response, this treatment option can be considered a reliable non-surgical alternative for patients seeking improvement in the contour of their chin and neck area
