Submental fullness, also known as “double chin” can be the result of many factors such as genetics, weight gain and aging. This non-surgical treatment can help with the reduction of stubborn fat below the chin and other smaller areas of the body.
Deoxycholic acid, also known as Belkyra, is naturally found within the body and its primary function is to break down fat. It can be injected in the fat beneath the chin area to help destroy the fat cells for unwanted and stubborn fullness. Multiple treatment sessions may be needed to achieve desired outcome. Treatment sessions are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart and you may experience increased swelling, in the area of injection, for the first week after treatment.
Consultation with our nurse and clinic director will be done to assess if you are an appropriate candidate for fat dissolving treatments.
