Natural occurring deoxycholic acid found in the body is responsible for breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. The active ingredient found inside our fat dissolving injections (Belkyra®) is synthetic deoxycholic, which does the same thing.
It is injected into the target area to destroy fatty cells. This is a permanent treatment and after you have completed your treatment course, you must ensure you live a healthy lifestyle because weight gain will affect the results.
It is commonly used to get rid of "double chins" and fat around the jaw and neck area.
The treatment is relatively pain free, but some clients do feel a pinching and stinging sensation. Before treatment, we will apply the area with a numbing cream.
At your free consultation, we will take a medical history and discuss your areas of concern. Sometimes we may advise a combination of treatments to achieve the result you are looking for.
Within two weeks after your treatment, we will invite you back for a check-up, just to make sure you’re comfortable and are having no problems.
Allergan created this injectable to target and attack stubborn fat. This treatment produces the best results when used for the chin and neck.
Some common of the side effects are swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and possible areas of hardness surrounding the treated area.
Some clients have seen results after their 2nd session but this can vary depending upon your treatment plan. Book in a free consultation to discuss how many sessions of fat dissolving injections you need.
