A double chin is formed by a slackening of the muscles which may be caused by a genetic or hormonal problem and afflicts not only obese, but also slender men and women. With age, a double chin automatically becomes larger and more pronounced.
The Envy Clinic is one of the few specialized establishments performing this non-invasive treatment in Slovakia. Our doctors, MUDr. Zuzana Kožuchová and MUDr. Mahdi Nasab have attended official, certified training in Allergan in Budapest, and as one of the first clinics in Slovakia, we now offer this FDA and CE approved, highly effective treatment method at our ENVY clinics.
This type of treatment (known in the US as “Kybella”) is very popular among celebrities. Khloé Kardashian, with her beautiful chin and well-defined jaw, is the face of this brand, and this amazing procedure has been sought after by innumerous people around the world.
Belkyra is a special solution of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. It reduces the amount of submental fat and redefines your jawline and chin without surgery. Using an extra fine needle, we inject the solution into the chin area based on points determined by a special template. Following the hypodermic injections, the process in which fat cells are permanently destroyed as the body naturally breaks them down begins. The procedure is slightly painful, therefore it is done only after applying a topical anaesthetic cream which also cools the skin during the procedure.
After applying Belkyra, the most common side effect is the subsequent swelling of the treated area. In spite of this unaesthetic effect, the swelling in fact indicates the correctness of the procedure and disappears within 5-14 days. The client is regularly checked by a doctor. The procedure itself takes about 40 minutes and the recovery time is one day.
The first results are visible after 2-4 weeks. The effect is permanent, as there is not only fat loss, as with regular lipolysis, but literal destruction of fat cells and subsequent fibrosis of the subcutaneous tissue, thus creating a lifting effect. However, in order to achieve a lasting effect, it is recommended to repeat the procedure 2-4 times in 6-week intervals, according to the individual needs of the client.
Recovery is one to three days.
Belkyra allows you to have the perfect profile and remove any signs of a double chin. Once you try Belkira, you’ll get rid of it forever and ever. All you have to do is apply deoxycholic acid, which is naturally found in our body and does a fine job removing submental fat.
Don’t shave the area a few hours before the treatment and don’t use any odour, creams or any agents, that may cause irritation.
Unfortunately, you can’t undergo the treatment if you’re sensitive to deoxycholic acid, if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
We will use a very thin needle to apply a special solution of deoxycholic acid into your chin. We use a special pattern to find spots approx. 1 cm apart and inject the solution. Once the solution is used, a process is started that once and for all destroys all fat cells. The body then takes care of the rest. The number of injections and procedures is individual depending on the amount of fat in the area. However, it usually is 2 to 4 times. The treatment is slightly painful, so a local anaesthetic cream is applied, which also serves to cool your skin.
On average, it takes about 45 minutes, including anaesthetic cream application, pattern usage and the procedure itself.
No further care is needed after the treatment. However, should you feel a slight burning or should the area become slightly irritated, do use cold facings.
The recommended recovery time is just a single day.
After Belkyra is applied, swelling appears. This might not look too good at first sight, but it actually means the treatment was successful. The area may become irritated, too, or you may feel slight burning, but this will disappear after a few hours. The swelling itself will disappear after 5 to 14 days after the treatment. Regular check-ups are provided during this period.
