Goodbye double chin! How Belkyra improved my self-confidence
When I got my driver’s licence photo taken after I turned 42, I thought the MPI employee just did a terrible job. I had a double chin! I asked her to re-take the photograph and the second one was just as bad. When I got home that day, I took a long hard look in the mirror and realized I had developed a double chin as a result of ageing. I noticed a few of my friends in their early forties were starting to get double chins too even though they hadn’t gained weight.
In the spring of 2016, Belkyra arrived in Canada and I volunteered to be Coralee’s first client to get the procedure because I had complete faith in her abilities. I had a perfect pocket of fat under my chin, so I was the ideal candidate. They say, “If you can grab it, you can jab it.”
Of course the procedure involves a lot more than jabbing. It’s all about strategically placed injections containing a naturally occurring molecule that eats fat. Once the injections are complete, the targeted fat dissolves.
When I had the first treatment, I felt a slightly unpleasant burning sensation. Within a few hours, my chin swelled up like a bullfrog. We had anticipated the side effect, so I booked the appointment on a Friday afternoon before a long weekend. By Tuesday, I looked a little swollen, but I covered my neck with a scarf. We did two more treatments spaced out at least a month apart.
A few weeks after I had the third treatment, I went back to Coralee and she said that there was no need to do another treatment. I absolutely loved the results. It is the best thing I have ever done to improve my physical appearance and the results are permanent. I am thrilled with the results and recommend the procedure to anyone who expresses unhappiness with his or her double chin.
