Swelling and bruising at the injection site are frequent adverse effects. These transient symptoms should resolve after a few weeks of your therapy. According to anecdotal reports, Belkyra edema may peak after a couple of days but subside on its own within a month.
Please speak with us about techniques to reduce edema. Several of these alternatives include the following:
After your treatment with ice or cold packs, apply warm compresses for the first several days following your injections.
post-treatment, wearing a chin strap for extra compression
taking an over-the-counter antihistamine before your session utilizing over-the-counter pain medicines to alleviate post-treatment discomfort and swelling firmly massage the region as tolerated
If you have post-Belkyra therapy swelling, you should delay further injections until the symptoms subside.
Typically, swelling subsides on its own over the suggested one-month interval between treatments. However, notify us if you have swelling in the days leading up to your next planned treatment.
Belkyra: the non-surgical answer
New and non-surgical treatment options are now available that can help you get rid of fat under your chin. in 2015, Health Canada gave the go-ahead to a quick and easy in-office injectable treatment. This procedure helps you reach your goals for submental fullness treatment.
Men just do not like their double chins
Interest in Belkyra shows that men do not like having a double chin, even if they may have inherited it or it just came about over time.
BELKYRA is a prescription drug
Allergan produces and markets Kybela along with Juvederm and Botox Cosmetic, However, Belkyra requires a prescription, even if it is an injectable cosmetic product. When it comes to the United States, Allergan decided to market it under a different name, Kybella.
Describe How BELKYRA Works
The main ingredient in is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring acid in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat from food. After Dr. Kamal Injects the Belkyra into the fat layer under your chin, it starts to work immediately by dissolving fat cells. As soon as those cells die, they can not store or build up fat. This will help you get rid of the fat layer under your skin and make it look slimmer.
There is no research to support the safety and efficacy for its use outside the double chin. Are you thinking about using Belkyra to get rid of extra fat from your belly, Love handles, saddlebags, or muffin top? Better to think about CoolSculpting!
Dr. Alhallak performs the injection into the skin under the chin in a grid pattern that is unique to each patient and the stubborn fat they have. This method is non-invasive. We have noticed that most of our patients are extremely happy after two to three sessions.
Why do I have a double chin?
We all know that the double chin affects a wide range of adults, including both men and women. Some of these patients are overweight, but other factors such as aging, genetics can contribute to it. Submental fullness is one of the major contributors to low self-perception. As the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) found out in a survey in 2015:
- The double chin bothers 67% of people.
- Many people are concerned by the fullness under their chin as they are by the lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.
I do not know what to expect from BELKYRA!
It has been the subject of a global clinical development program that has involved more than 20 studies with more than 2,600 patients around the world. Over one million patients have received Belkyra injections since then, and the number is just getting bigger.
How many BELKYRA treatments to get a slim chin?
In the initial consultation, we will decide how many treatments you need, based on how you want your chin to look. Many patients see results in two to four treatment sessions. During these sessions, your service provider will inject Belkyra® into the fat under your chin with a lot of shots. You might need up to six treatment sessions (we rarely saw anyone who needed more than three), but you have to wait between 4 weeks before getting the second set of injections.
How long do the results last?
When we inject Belkyra solution into the fat under your chin, it kills fat cells. As soon as those cells die, they can not store or build up fat. Once you are happy with the results, you would need to repeat them ever again!
Belkyra will permanently destroy your fat cells. However, your remaining fat cells may get larger if you gain weight. Assume you started with 1,000 fat cells and each therapy eliminates 200 of them. You’d only have 200 fat cells remaining after four treatments. If you gain weight, those 200 fat cells might expand and store additional fat. You will always deposit less fat beneath your chin with fewer fat cells than you would without the medication. Your skin under your chin will continue to age as time passes. Belkyra is unable to stop it.
Is Belkyra is the only non-surgical treatment for Double Chin?
No, we offer multiple treatments for the double chin such as coolsculpting, PDO threads lift, Fotona laser neck tightening. During the initial consultation with Dr. Kamal, he will guide you through these options and design a treatment plan to fit your expectations in terms of results and cost.
