Deoxycholic acid (Belkyra®)
Until recently, the double chin posed a very difficult challenge to correct from an aesthetic standpoint. Due to a combination of factors, including genetics, jaw configuration, and neck angle, the fat in the submental area seems very resistant to diet and exercise alone. Until recently, the only option was a surgical correction, primarily in the form of liposuction. But now, a non-surgical treatment is available: Injectable deoxycholic acid (Belkyra®) treatment.
Dr. Adi Yoskovitch is one of the few specialists to offer deoxycholic acid (Belkyra®) treatments. This injectable product is the first and only Health Canada approved treatment for submental fullness. Deoxycholic acid, a molecule present in the human body, dissolves subcutaneous fat and leads to its progressive elimination, which results in an improved chin profile. Once you have obtained the chin profile you desire, you do not need to repeat the treatment. Deoxycholic acid (Belkyra®) treatments are relatively fast, simple, and personalized. Each injection session lasts about 15 minutes, and visits are spread out over a number of weeks.
At Dr. Yoskovitch’s Clinic, situated in Fabreville in Laval. Having performed a lot of these procedures in the past few years, Dr. Yoskovitch has developed a unique technique of applying deoxycholic acid (Belkyra®), thus diminishing at its maximum post-procedure swelling. The procedure is done in the clinic and takes approximately 15 minutes. Most patient can expect a more defined jawline with a better projection of the chin.
Results are variable from patient to patient and depend on multiple variables that are addressed at the time of consultation.
