SkinViva is preparing for the 2018 launch of innovative BELKYRA® fat busting injections.
The product is already FDA approved and licensed for use in the USA, where it is known as ‘KYBELLA’ and has been very popular among clients seeking to improve the double chin.
The double chin is officially known as ‘submental fat’, or fat beneath the chin. This is a very common problem. In fact, studies have shown that 67% of adults dislike the fat in this area – very similar to the numbers bothered by lines and wrinkles.
Researchers have demonstrated that fullness under the chin can impact how a person feels about themselves and, for both women and men, can lead to feelings of negative self-impression.
Double chin can be seen as ageing and unflattering, especially as fat accumulation beneath the chin tends to mean that definition of the jawline is lost, leading to a ‘weak chin’ appearance.
A strong jawline is associated with strength of character as well as youth. It is a feature which both women and men aspire to.
When it launches in the UK, BELKYRA® will be a prescription only product specifically to tackle double chin area.
Benefits of treatment:
For more information, see BELKYRA® Treatment Information.
BELKYRA® contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a substance which occurs naturally in the body. When injected, BELKYRA® causes the destruction of fat cells, which are then expelled by the body’s normal metabolic processes.Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat again; although it is important to manage a healthy weight to avoid future build up.
While this product has been in use in the USA for some time, we require approval by the authorities in the UK to offer it in this country. This has been taking quite some time, but we believe the product will be available in the early part of 2018.
We intend to offer BELKYRA® at SkinViva in Manchester, as well as our clinics in Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester. We will launch it as soon as product is available and our expert Aesthetic Clinicians have received full training with Dr Tim Pearce.
We are now gathering names of those who would like to be advised of more news on this exciting development. Please sign up to our mailing list using the form below.
