Even if you follow a healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise, you may have trouble getting rid of fat beneath your chin. Heights Laser Centre offers Vancouver patients two non-surgical solutions for double chin treatment: CoolSculpting® and BELKYRA®. Both can permanently eliminate this unwanted fat and give you a firmer, fitter-looking profile.
Heights Laser Centre is a CoolSculpting® University-certified practice. This means that our team members have completed specialized training to ensure that patients receive the most effective and gentle care possible.
As part of your double chin treatment, a certified technician will place CoolSculpting’s application panels around the area you are targeting for treatment. These panels will freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. The process typically takes about an hour per area, during which you can watch TV, talk on the phone, or read a book. In general:
- Heights Laser Centre recommends CoolSculpting® as a double chin treatment for patients who have wider areas of fat.
- Treatment is very tolerable. The advanced technology we use significantly decreases sensitivity.
- You may experience redness, swelling, and minor aching or tenderness in the treatment area after CoolSculpting®. Otherwise, you should be able to return to normal activities immediately.
- Our Vancouver patients typically see the final results from CoolSculpting® between three weeks and four months after a treatment.
Dr. Perhez Jaffer, the Medical Director for Heights Laser Centre, performs all injectable procedures for our med spa patients, including BELKYRA®. With over thirteen years experience as an anti-aging physician and over twenty years as a family practitioner, he offers those in his care, expert, supportive, and gentle treatment.
BELKYRA® will dissolve unwanted submental fat below your chin, which your body will then filter out of your system. The procedure is relatively straightforward. Heights Laser Centre staff will apply ice to desensitize the treatment area, and then Dr. Jaffer will inject BELKYRA® into the site. Typically:
- BELKYRA® works well for a small amount of localized fat beneath the chin.
- There is no downtime after the procedure. However, you should ice the area and should expect some swelling below your chin as BELKYRA® dissolves the fat cells.
- Results from double chin treatment with BELKYRA® are not immediate. Our Vancouver patients usually get a great outcome with 2-3 treatment sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
Permanently Eliminate the Fat Beneath Your Chin Without Surgery
You can expect personal attention and high-quality care at every step in your relationship with Heights Laser Centre. This experience will begin with your consultation with Dr. Jaffer, who will help you determine the right double chin treatment for your needs.
During your appointment, Dr. Jaffer will talk to you about your goals and discuss possible solutions, including CoolSculpting®, BELKYRA®, or a combination of both. His recommendation will depend mostly on the amount and location of the fat you would like to treat, which he will evaluate with a comprehensive examination:
- If CoolSculpting® is the right option for you, Jaffer will introduce you to your certified technician so that you can get additional details about treatment.
- If you are a better candidate for BELKYRA®, Dr. Jaffer will discuss the injection process and answer any questions you have.
Non-surgical treatment works very well for many people. In a few cases, however, Vancouver patients have fat deposits that neither CoolSculpting® nor BELKYRA® can address effectively. Dr. Jaffer may advise these individuals to consider liposuction as an alternative solution.
