The patient only receives lots of injections under the chin area where the double chin forms. At times, to ensure accuracy, the injection sites may be pre-marked.
You will be given a topical analgesic. The local anesthesia injection also might be used to make you more comfortable during your BELKYRA treatment. After this, a transparent grid will be placed onto your chin. This will act as a guide which is followed by the person applying the injection to ensure accuracy. This intensifies the chances of obtaining smooth, balanced results. The number of injections for a single session may range between 20 and 50, with all being in the underside of your chin.
How long does the session take?
Within a couple of minutes, say 20 minutes, the treatment is completed. In case you experience any pain or discomfort, just apply an ice pack for about 10 minutes. This will help in reducing any form of swelling.
How many sessions do I need?
This also depends on how much submental fat ( double chin ) you have. If your submental fat falls under the severe category, more sessions may be required, to achieve the best results. The next BELKYRA treatment session may be scheduled four to six weeks after the first session.
Are my results permanent?
Yes, you’ll enjoy a permanent improvement of your chin contour as the targeted fat cells disappear. This is because the treatment destroys fat in the area, making it virtually impossible to re-accumulate. However, excessive weight gain after this non-surgical treatment may reverse your results. Therefore, we recommend you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan to limit dietary fat and maintain your results.
