Easter is over and now it’s time put down the chocolate and wine and detox your skin and body.
After the Easter long weekend, we see an influx of patients who feel bloated and blotchy and are looking for treatment plans to kick start their beauty goals.
This April our clients have nominated Belkyra, otherwise known as the double chin dissolver to be our discounted treatment.
Belkyra is relatively new to the Face Plus Medispa’s treatment menu. It is a service that has garnered quite a lot of client demand. Essentially it is a chin fat dissolving and sculpting treatment.
If you are uncomfortable with your double chin or suffer from a pocket of fat around your jaw line, then this could be the treatment for you. Sub-mental fat stored underneath the chin is largely a hereditary condition. It causes the face to blend into the neck which means you lose the definition of your jawline.
A defined jawline is a feature many men and women aspire to. Before we go any further all patients considering this treatment must book in for an injectables consultation with one of our registered nurses to ascertain if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
What is Belkyra?
Belkyra contains a synthesised deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a compound that is naturally in the body, aiding in digestion and absorption of fats.
Belkyra offers a non-surgical option that is carried out with a series of injections to the double chin and jawline area.
The number of treatments required will depend on the patient and how much excess fat and skin they have in this area.
At Face Plus Medispa you must purchase a minimum of two treatments which are to be performed two months apart. As a results-based clinic we do this to ensure our customers see noticeable results.
What is the treatment process?
Once you have been deemed a suitable candidate our nurses need to get a script for the product which has to be approved by a Doctor on site or via video.
Next, your nurse will begin the treatment by numbing the area. A stencil, similar to a temporary tattoo is applied under the chin. The stencil has a series of dots on it which is where the needles will go.
The treatment itself will take between 20 to 40 minutes depending on the total number of injection points required. When injected the compound breaks down the fat cells which the body eliminates. It also causes the skin to tighten.
Is the treatment painful?
Our nurses numb the area with a local anaesthetic to ensure pain is minimal throughout the procedure. However, it completely depends on your pain threshold. One of our staff at Faceplus has undergone this procedure on three separate occasions and says that you can definitely feel the product working internally.
She also said that after the effects of the local anesthetic wears off, you can be quite uncomfortable.
Does the treatment require any downtime?
Yes. Once the product is injected into the targeted area expect it to swell up quite dramatically. This a good sign as it means the product is taking effect to break down and absorb the fat.
Many call it a ‘bullfrog’ effect. The swelling and occasional bruising can last anywhere from 48 hours up to two weeks. The effects really differ from patient to patient. The chin area will also be sensitive to touch at first and some clients advised a slight hardening of the area, this is normal too.
This a treatment where it’s important to plan ahead. Make sure your calendar is clear of social engagements or meetings where you might be self-conscious.
This double chin reduction treatment is not for the faint hearted. However, the results speak for itself.
The minimum two treatment package usually costs around $2500. However, from April 3rd 2018, for a limited time only we are reducing the treatment by 25%.
