Dr. DuPéré’s Double Chin Injection Techniques
Once you’ve had a chance to discuss your goals with Dr. DuPéré, each BELKYRA session begins by cleansing your neck and applying a local anesthetic. From there, Dr. DuPéré marks your skin at the locations that will most effectively target fat.
Each treatment session requires several injections spaced in a grid about a centimeter apart over the surface of the area you want to treat. Each injection takes just a brief moment, and your entire appointment should take well under an hour.
As with all injectable treatments at Visage Clinic, including fillers and BOTOX COSMETIC®, Dr. DuPéré personally administers all BELKYRA treatments to ensure your safety and the quality of your results.
When considering your procedure options, it’s important to understand the limitations of BELKYRA in the context of your overall goals. BELKYRA is a good choice for patients with elastic skin who are looking to eliminate a small to moderate amount of double chin fat. There is no surgery and no downtime — but that also means the results aren’t as extensive as a surgical procedure such as liposuction, which may be a better option for some patients.
For those looking to remedy loose, sagging neck skin, a neck lift may be a better choice. When the skin is less elastic, it may need to be lifted. And if your goals involve other areas of the face, as well, a facelift, with or without a small chin implant or fat grafting may be more appropriate. Of course, Dr. DuPéré can go over all your options in more detail during your consultation, and the best solution for you may involve combining procedures.
