Non-Surgical Double Chin Fat Reduction (by injection)
Non-Surgical Double Chin Fat Reduction, also known as submental fat reduction, offers an option to those who have accumulated fat under their chin due to genetics, aging, or weight fluctuations. Such accumulation often persists despite diet and exercise and can impact the definition of one’s jawline and chin.
In the past, options for addressing this issue were largely surgical, such as Neck Lift or Liposuction. However, a non-surgical alternative has emerged in the form of Belkyra, a prescription drug approved by the Therapeutic Goods of Australia (TGA).
Belkyra contains Deoxycholic Acid, a substance naturally produced by the body, which aids in the breakdown of fat cells. When used as an injectable, it targets and permanently destroys fat cells under the chin. The process works by mimicking the body’s natural response to injury, triggering inflammation and subsequent repair, which stimulates the formation of new collagen, enhancing the elasticity and firmness of the skin.
This non-surgical method provides another avenue for individuals considering options to adjust the contour of their jawline. Please note that the treatment aims to alter the presence of submental fat and its outcomes may vary based on individual factors.
