Localized or targeted fat loss is a very hot topic in the health and beauty industry nowadays Certain pockets of fat – like those under the chin, arm, abdomen and back area are extremely difficult to target and can leave patients feeling self-conscious and helpless. And thanks to new treatments and technologies such as Cool Sculpting and Belkyra this is become more and more realistic and achievable.
Belkyra is an injectable drug that can reduce submental (under the chin) fat and redefine your jawline, effectively eliminating your double chin without surgery. It consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. When injected into a targeted area, it destroys fat cell membranes, allowing the fat inside to be released and naturally eliminated from the body.
It’s technical name is cryolipolysis, which is just a science-y way to say fat freezing.CoolSculpting’s fat-freezing technology gives long-term results that make trouble spots a lot less troubling.*Fat cells don’t like the cold and at a certain temperature they will freeze. Once that happens, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells in 2-6 months or more, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area.
