Belkyra®, a treatment for double chin, recently joined the list of cosmetic treatments available in New Zealand. You may have probably already heard about the fat melting injections which was approved by the FDA as “Kybella”. It was approved by the TGA in 2017 as Belkyra®.
Double chin or chin fat is a common concern for many people, and recently the only option to get rid of this pesky fat was surgery. Belkyra® now offers a new non surgical treatment option, that is quick and non- invasive. When injected under the chin, Belkyra® works by bursting the fat cells like a balloon. The fat released by the fat cells is then removed by the body via the blood stream and liver.
A double chin is often thought to be a result of lifestyle choices. The truth is that this condition does not necessarily have anything to do with body weight. It can happen because of genetics, age and other factors beyond our control.
