Belkyra & Kybella Double Chin Treatment
Bellair Laser Clinic offers Belkyra in addition to Coolsculpt for treatment of double chin. This procedure specifically targets the stubborn fat (called submental fat) that rests on the under the chin. This quick, non-invasive procedure restores a younger look to your face, and is effective at targeting fat that even diet and exercise can’t target. Dr Peter Bray was among the first Canadian physicians to be trained to perform this procedure at the product launch on January 30, 2016 in Toronto.
Double chin or chin fat are a very common concerns for many people who are trying to achieve a more sculpted jawline. Many people erroneously believe that double chins can only be the result of lifestyle choices. The truth is that this condition does not necessarily have anything to do with body weight. It can happen because of genetics, age and other factors beyond our control.
What Is Belkyra?
Belkyra is composed of deoxycholate, a synthetic non-animal chemical that can disrupt the cell membrane of fat cells and are then naturally processed by the body. Deoxycholate is found naturally in our own bodies to break down the fat we eat. The product we inject is indistinguishable from what is found circulating in our own bodies which is why Belkyra is extremely safe.
The Belkyra / Kybella Procedure
The Belkyra procedure is very simple and fast. Dr Peter Bray is a board certified plastic surgeon and is therefore able to perform the Belkyra treatment with great accuracy. He will assess and identify the area to be specifically targeted, then a thin sheet with coloured dots are placed on the skin. The sheet is then moistened with water and these small dots are transferred to the skin temporarily for the procedure. He will then inject Belkyra in a very systematic and precise fashion into the fat pocket. The treatment is then complete and you can go back to your normal activities immediately.
The injections work by dissolving the protein membranes around fat cells, allowing them to collapse and be processed naturally by the body. All you’ll feel is the injections themselves, which are applied with a very small needle to the area. Overall, the treatment takes only a few minutes. Follow-up treatments are booked right away so we can monitor progress and assess the need for another session. Usually 2 to 3 treatments are required depending on the amount of fat in the area.
Some patients will experience some swelling, bruising and soreness after the procedure, which varies in amount from person to person. Also, small areas of bruising can be common due to the injection process. You can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Generally we see results within a few weeks for some patients and longer than a month for others. Visit us for a complimentary consultation to determine if Belkyra is right for you!
Double Chin Coolsculpting
Bellair Laser Clinic is proud to be offering the most comfortable and effective non-invasive treatment for fat loss of the chin. FREEZE FAT AWAY, SAY NO TO SURGERY. We can help you achieve your desired appearance with the FDA approved coolsculpt fat freezing technology. The handpiece used to treat the chin area is called the CoolMini and it effectively treats chin fat. 1-2 treatments are required for best results.
Bulges of fat such as fat on the neck or what some would call a “double chin” is often hard to get rid of with diet and exercise. Some would describe this area as “hard to treat fat” since there is often little improvement in chin fat with vigorous diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen). Over time, your body naturally processes the fat leaving a more sculpted look. This process is call Cryolipolysis®. Cryolipolysis means reduction of fat cells with the use of freezing, hence the term “freeze fat away” by freezing fat cells to the point of reduction without damaging any surrounding tissues such as nerves, skin and muscle.
The Coolsculpting treatment will take 1 hour per area. Prior to treatment a cool gel pad is applied to the skin and there is a suction from the hand peice which is necessary to treat the fat. There is high patient comfort as once the hand piece is applied to the skin it does not move for 1 hour. Post treatment a massage is performed on the area and some numbness is expected for a few weeks post treatment.
