DOUBLE CHIN & FACE SCULPTING
Men, do you have a double chin?
A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin. A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but genetics or loose skin due to aging may also cause a double chin. Millions of people suffer from this condition, and it can be embarrassing to go out in public or take photos with your friends. But now there are treatments available that will help you get rid of that double chin for good!
We offer two different types of non-invasive procedures that can help treat your double chin or sagging skin on your neck – Belkyra® injections and Venus Freeze™ treatments. With the new Belkyra® treatment, we can permanently destroy fat cells beneath your skin so they never come back again. And with Venus Freeze™, we can tighten up loose neck skin and reduce those annoying grooves on your neck!
Both options provide excellent results without downtime, discomfort, or scarring. For those who want an alternative to surgery but still desire long-lasting results, these procedures may be just what you need!
BELKYRA® offers a non-surgical method that reduces fat under the chin in order to contour the jawline and neck. It is an injectable prescription medication that contains deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally produced by the body to break down and absorb fat cells. Destroying fat cells beneath the chin eliminates fat storage in this area, which eliminates and prevents a double chin.
A double chin can make you look older and heavier than you actually are. It’s time to get rid of that unsightly fat under your neck with BELKYRA®! With BELKYRA®, there is no need for invasive procedures like liposuction or face lifts. And because our product is injected into the skin, there isn’t any downtime either – so you can go back to work right after treatment if necessary. Don’t wait any longer; schedule an appointment today at our Toronto, Burlington, or Pickering locations.
You may be a candidate for BELKYRA® if you have a double chin and/or excess fat around the jawline. Contrary to popular belief, even thin individuals can have a double chin if their body genetically stores fat around the jawline. To determine if you are an ideal candidate, schedule an appointment with one of our skin care professionals at any of our three Therapeutic Aesthetics locations: Toronto, Burlington, or Pickering.
When having BELKYRA® injections, you can expect to be given a local anesthetic to maintain your comfort. Once the treatment area has been numbed, you will receive a number of injections in a grid pattern beneath the chin. The entire procedure only takes about 15 minutes. For the best results, most people require two treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
After having BELKYRA® injections, you can expect to have some swelling in the neck and chin area for up to 3-4 weeks. This swelling is the result of the body processing dead fat cells. You can minimize swelling through the use of ice packs. Visible fat reduction can be seen about eight weeks after the injections, and these results will generally last until you gain weight.
The Venus Freeze™ technique heats the tissue at various depths and stimulates fibroblasts, which are cells that produce collagen and elastin fibers for tighter, more youthful looking skin. The Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields promote the formation of new blood vessels and cause a rapid increase in collagen, which reverses visible effects of skin damage.
In just a few quick sessions, you’ll see tighter skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles. When used in coordination with Belkyra®, this technique can tighten loose skin left behind when submental fat is removed. With the Venus Freeze™ technique, you can look years younger with just one session!
Venus Freeze™ FAQs:
You may be a candidate for Venus Freeze™ if you have started to lose elasticity in your skin and are showing early signs of fine lines, wrinkles, and/or saggy skin. You may also be a candidate for Venus Freeze™ if you have cellulite. Venus Freeze™ can be used on the face, neck, or body, depending on your treatment goals. To determine if you are an ideal candidate, schedule an appointment with one of our skin care professionals at any of our three Therapeutic Aesthetics locations: Toronto, Burlington, or Pickering.
During your treatment, you can expect to feel the applicator slowly getting warmer until it reaches the necessary temperature. Most people find the treatment to be relaxing and equate the sensation to a hot stone massage. However, if the applicator is too hot, your operator can change the settings to maintain your comfort. The entire treatment lasts approximately 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Most patients receive about eight treatments spaced one week apart, however this can vary depending on your treatment plan.
After your treatment, you can expect to feel relaxed. There is no downtime associated with Venus Freeze™ treatment and you can immediately return to your usual routine. In some cases, you may notice some redness and/or warmth around the treatment area, but this should fade within a couple of hours. After the final session in your treatment series, your results will continue for about 3-4 months. Since this treatment does not stop the aging process, however, maintenance treatments may be recommended.
