Do you feel wrong about how your double chin makes you look? You’re not alone. Submental fullness, or fat that builds up under the chin, is something that both men and women worry about regarding their looks. 

If diet and exercise haven’t helped you lose weight the way you want, Belkyra may be the answer you’re looking for! See how this treatment works in this blog post today. 

About Belkyra

Belkyra is a non-surgical treatment that permanently removes submental fat by injecting deoxycholic acid. But how does it work? Let’s learn more about the science behind this new treatment.

How it Works?

Deoxycholic acid is the first thing we’ll talk about for this process. This naturally occurring molecule helps your body break down and absorb fat. When injected into the fat under your chin, it breaks down the fat cells, which your body naturally removes.

The injection itself is quick and doesn’t hurt too much. Your doctor or nurse will mark the area under your chin where the injection will be given. A numbing agent could be used to help lessen any pain. Then, your doctor or nurse will use a fine needle to put small amounts of Belkyra into the submental fat.

After the injection, the deoxycholic acid starts to do its job. It breaks down the fat cells so your body’s natural processes can care for them. Over time, the fat under your chin will disappear, making your face look more sculpted and defined.

The Best Things About Belkyra

One of the best things about Belkyra is that the effects last forever. When a treatment kills fat cells, they are gone for good. This means you will only need more treatments once you reach your goal. Of course, living a healthy life and working out can help stop new fat cells from forming in the future.

Though, it’s important to remember that Belkyra is not a way to lose weight. It’s only meant to target and eliminate fat under the chin. Suppose you have a lot of weight to lose. In that case, you should think about other ways to do it, like changing your diet and getting more exercise or having bariatric surgery.

No Surgery Needed

Another significant benefit of Belkyra is that it doesn’t require surgery. That means you won’t need general anesthesia or have to take any time off after the procedure. After the shot, you can return to your routine immediately.

Belkyra Aftercare

After getting BelkyraTM injections, following the aftercare instructions is very important to get the best results and feel as little pain or discomfort as possible.

One of the most important things to remember is not to touch or massage the treated area for at least 24 hours after the procedure. This helps keep the injection site from worsening and lets the deoxycholic acid work better. For the first 24 hours, putting a cold compress on the area can also help reduce swelling and pain.

It’s also essential to avoid hard exercise, drink alcohol, and be in very hot or cold places for at least 24 hours after the treatment. This can help reduce the chance of side effects like swelling, bruising, or pain.

After the procedure, some people may have mild to moderate swelling, redness, or bruises. Still, they usually go away in a few days to a week. Any pain can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers. Still, it’s important to avoid aspirin and other medicines that thin the blood because they can make bleeding or bruising more likely.

Last Reminders

It’s important to remember that Belkyra doesn’t work right away. It may take a few weeks before you can see the effects. Some people may need more than one treatment to get the desired results, and it’s essential to keep in touch with your doctor to get the best results.

Again, aftercare is critical to get the most out of your Belkyra treatment and have the fewest possible side effects. If you follow these simple rules and work closely with a licensed healthcare provider, you can use Belkyra to make your face look more defined and younger.

Possible Side Effects

It’s important to remember that BelkyraTM has risks and side effects, just like any other medical treatment. Some common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, and numbness in the treated area. These effects often go away in a few days to a few weeks.

More severe side effects can happen in rare cases. That’s why it’s essential to have your treatment done by a licensed medical professional who can give Belkyra.

If you are considering taking Belkyra, you should first make an appointment with a licensed healthcare provider. During this meeting, your provider will decide if you are a good candidate for the treatment and discuss your goals and expectations.

Suppose you are a good candidate for the treatment. In that case, your provider will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your concerns and goals. How many injections you need will depend on how much submental fat you have and what you want to achieve.
