Fat Dissolving Injections & Chin Sculpting

Permanently remove small areas of stubborn fat.

How do fat dissolving injections work?

Fat dissolving injections are a non-surgical option to dissolve and permanently remove small areas of stubborn fat. These injections can be used to sculpt, contour and define the lower face as well as remove stubborn fat elsewhere on the body.

Treatment is suitable for :
Double chin, jawline contouring, jowls, stubborn pockets of fat.

Permanent Results

Fat dissolving injections contain an acid which is naturally occurring in the body and works to breakdown and absorb the fat contained in the food we consume.

A compound which naturally occurs in the body, is used to aid the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the area, this compound breaks down the fat cells by disrupting the cell membrane. The contents of the fat cell is then broken down as waste by the body.

Once a fat cell has been destroyed they are unable to store fat anymore thus reducing the total amount of fatty tissue in an area.

One removed, the results are permanent.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many treatments are needed?

    Many people treated with BELKYRA experience visible improvements in the appearance of their chin profile in 2-4 treatments. Sessions are spaced at least one month apart and a maximum of 6 treatments may be given. It is important to understand that BELKYRA treatment is not a one off treatment. Once your desired results are achieved, re-treatment is not expected as results are maintained.

  • What aftercare is recommended?

    You will most likely feel a pressure or stinging, and your chin will swell. To minimise pain and swelling after receiving the injections, some patients find icing the area to be helpful. Avoid very strenuous exercise for the first 5 days following treatment. Mild to moderate exercise may be safe after 48 hours, depending on your degree of swelling.

  • How long does the treatment take?

    Initially your skin will be treated with an anaesthetic cream to help numb the upper neck/chin. The treatment area will be marked, and sometimes local anaesthetic injections are administered. The active product will then be placed in the fat under the skin. Total treatment time will be approximately 30 - 45 minutes.

  • What should I expect after the treatment?

    Belkyra treatment can cause swelling in your chin and upper neck for 2-4 weeks, giving you a temporary fullness before seeing improvement. When scheduling your treatment, it is important to consider this.
