FAQ

How much does it cost to remove a double chin?

Cost varies depending on the size of the treatment area and number of treatments required.

For moderately sized double chins, only 2-3 treatments are necessary. For larger chins, upwards of 6 treatments may be required. For information about treatment pricing, come in for a free consultation or get in touch.

Is Belkyra® safe?

Belkyra®  is approved by the FDA. Belkyra® contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occuring substance, which bursts fat cells to reduce the size of double chins. 

And because the treatment is non-surgical, there’s minimal risk for scarring or a need for local anaesthesia. 

Note - This treatment is not suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Is it effective?

Yes, double chin reduction with Belkyra® is effective. Belkyra® permanently destroys fat cells in your neck/chin area so that they’ll never come back. 

Please note that fat cells are not the only cause of double chins. Things such as deep-lying fat, large neck & jaw muscles, and enlarged glands may also cause double chins, for which Belkyra® is not effective at treating.
