While exercising and dieting are good ways to promote your overall health, some areas of fat tend to linger regardless of body weight. Sometimes, fat pads under the chin are related to hormones or heredity rather than body weight, meaning you may need a little help beyond exercising and dieting for desired results. At the De Pieri Clinic we offer 2 methods of injectables that can reduce the appearance of your double chin.
Belkyra: An injectable drug approved by Health Canada, Belkyra is safe for clinical cosmetic use when administered by a qualified injector. It consists of a version of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies. When injected into the submental (below the chin) area, it is capable of destroying fat cell membranes, which allows the fat inside to be released and naturally flushed away from the body. Depending on the severity of your submental fat, scheduling two to six sessions, four to six weeks apart, is recommended for optimal results. Each treatment takes just a few minutes.
Phosphatidylcholine Injection:This is another injectable used as a non-surgical treatment in body contouring including under the chin. When injected, it destroys fat cells and your body naturally excretes them. After 2-6 sessions, patients notice reduction in fat deposits. This is an excellent way to achieve a more contoured jawline and a slimmer facial structure.
