Turkey Neck Be Gone!
The rumours are true, there is now a way to get rid of your double chin. The answer? I’ll give you a hint, it doesn’t involve a million sit ups, a restrictive diet, or a scalpel!
Too good to be true?
Nope, this is real folks. Take a look at these before and after photos that prove it.
What is this magic potion you ask? It’s called Belkyra, sometimes called Kybella, and it’s an injectable.
So getting rid of your chin can be as simple as getting a few needles. The sciences comes from a natural fat dissolving acid (similar to the acid found in our stomachs). Not only do you get great results, but because this treatment dissolves the fat cells, you get rid of your double chin for good!
That’s right, no double chin ever, even if you gain weight later. Brilliant.
I wanted to get the real scoop on this treatment, so I reached out to one of North America’s top dermatologists, Dr. Lisa Kellett from DLK On Avenue.
Sam: What kind of result can one expect from the Belkyra treatment?
Dr Lisa Kellett: Belkyra is a non-surgical procedure that consists of injecting a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid into the submental (or upper neck) area to decrease localized pockets of fat.
Sam: Is the treatment painful?
Dr Lisa Kellett: A very fine needle is used to inject and a topical anesthetic is also used to make the treatment more comfortable.
Sam: How much does this procedure cost?
Dr Lisa Kellett: The cost of the procedure is dependent on the patient and their anatomy. It is also dependent on how many treatments each patient needs. Treatments start at $1200.
Sam: How this might get used on other areas?
Dr Lisa Kellett: Currently, Belkyra has been approved only for the treatment of submental fat.
Sam: Do you think that Blekyra will eventually replace Botox?
Dr Lisa Kellett: Belkyra and Botox are entirely different drugs and they each target different issues. Belykyra targets submental fat while Botox is a neuromodulator that acts to decrease the activity of expressive muscles. Botox can also be used to treat excessive sweating.
