Does it hurt?
We utilise ultra-fine needles to enhance your comfort, and most patients report little pain. If desired, we can also provide cold compresses or topical numbing agents to make the treatment as pleasant as possible.
What is recovery like?
Like many of our cosmetic injectable treatments, BELKYRA™ typically involves a brief recovery period. You may experience some mild tenderness and bruising at the injection sites, and these effects should subside quickly. Swelling is another common symptom, and it can last between a week and 10 days in most cases. Immediately following the procedure you should be able to return to work or social activity, but some individuals prefer to take a day or two off. Benefits should begin to be noticeable within several weeks, after which your chin, neck and jawline should appear smoother, firmer, and more contoured. Results will develop gradually for the most natural-looking outcome possible.
Are there any alternatives to BELKYRA™?
If Belkyra™ is not right for you, we also offer CoolMini™ as a treatment for excess fat under the chin. Made by the same company that developed CoolSculpting® for non-surgical fat reduction on the body, CoolMini™ offers gradual, natural-looking results in the affected area. This technique works by freezing the fatty tissue in the area, causing it to break down and be metabolized by the body. No incisions, needles, or sutures are necessary, and most patients experience little to no downtime. During your initial consultation, we can discuss both options to help you identify the ideal approach for your needs, goals, and lifestyle.
