Nobody wants to have a double chin, especially if they’re otherwise trim and fit. In fact, every year at Heights Laser Centre, Dr. Jaffer sees Vancouver men and women who come in with that exact complaint – excess chin fat. This is because these people have learned that, unfortunately, there’s no way that you can diet or exercise away your unwanted chin fat. No matter how hard you work out, you can’t tell your body where to lose the weight you want to drop.
Luckily, there is hope for these Vancouver medical spa patients. A new injectable called Belkyra® is now available on the Canadian market, and Dr. Jaffer is one of the select few physicians to get a first look at this treatment option. By attacking chin fat cells, Belkyra® is helping Canadians drop that double chin, and get the profile they desire.
What Is Belkyra®?
Belkyra® isn’t surgery. It’s an injectable that’s administered as an outpatient procedure, with the only post-procedure restriction being to refrain from exercise for 3 days. Belkyra® helps Vancouver medical spa patients lose their double chins by directly targeting, attacking and killing fat cells in the chin. The dead fat cells are then eliminated by the patient’s body using his or her natural elimination process.
What’s the Belkyra® Experience Like?
If your double chin concerns you, then we recommend you schedule an appointment at Vancouver’s Heights Laser Centre. During an initial consultation with Dr. Jaffer, he’ll perform an evaluation and take down your medical history to confirm you are a proper candidate for Belkyra®.
On the day of your injection, you’ll arrive at Heights Laser Centre and immediately have ice placed underneath your chin for 10 minutes. This is to help numb the treatment area to reduce any discomfort you may feel during your injection.* Once you’re numb, Dr. Jaffer will get to work. He’ll inject the solution into your chin so that it can start ridding your body of unwanted chin fat cells for good. Once your injections are complete; your treatment area will be numbed for 20 minutes, this time to reduce swelling.*
Belkyra® is administered across sessions to help you lose your double chin. Most Vancouver patients will need 2-3 sessions, scheduled about 6-8 weeks apart in order to obtain optimal results.*
Am I a Good Candidate for Belkyra®?
Simply having a double chin you want to lose doesn’t automatically qualify you for treatment with Belkyra®. First, Dr. Jaffer must ensure you are medically sound enough to have the treatment, meaning that you don’t have enlarged thyroid or salivary glands, or any other condition that would prevent him from administering this injectable. Next, Dr. Jaffer needs to make sure you have the “right” type of chin fat for Belkyra® to target. In general, this means that you have a double chin and have good skin tone and don’t have chin fat that extends to the sides of the neck.
If you don’t qualify for Belkyra®, don’t worry. There’s still hope! Dr. Jaffer may be able to treat your double chin using a different non-invasive procedure called CoolSculpting®.
