Can you reduce your double chin without surgery? You bet!

A double-chin treatment for everyone

While certain surgical techniques have already proven their worth in eliminating a double chin, the fact remains that they’re invasive, they involve a fair amount of pain, and they require anesthesia, several weeks of recovery and a great deal of medical supervision and follow-up.

Obviously, many people can’t afford to halt all their daily activities in order to undergo a procedure like that. And few among us enjoy suffering, especially if there’s a more comfortable option available. Clinique Jean Gilbert offers you a gentle, practical solution: non-surgical double-chin reduction.

Understandably, people with a double chin can feel genuinely ill at ease. Its appearance isn’t exactly flattering. In fact, this feature can give the impression that they are older and more overweight than they actually are.

Despite sustained efforts to stay in shape, it’s possible that losing weight, as important as it may be, isn’t enough to make this excess tissue disappear completely. The fatty deposits in this part of the body are particularly stubborn, no matter what you do to try to get rid of them. Worse still, this problem can affect you even if you’ve always been thin. Why? Because it could be the result of any of the following factors:

  • Genetics
  • Aging and loosening of the skin
  • A weak chin

If you’ve already tried all of the old home remedies to restore the youthful appearance of your chin and you aren’t willing to undergo a surgical procedure, a non-surgical double-chin reduction just might be the convenient, permanent solution you’ve been waiting for.


Are you wondering how the heck you can get rid of this protuberance of whatever size without going under the knife? It isn’t magic; in fact, all it takes is a simple injection. The Belkyra treatment, to be specific, is the preferred option in this case.

The Belkyra treatment consists of injecting the problem area with deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Health Canada has approved the use of specialized medications in the treatment of moderate-to-severe submental convexity and fullness associated with submental fat in adults.

The practitioner will determine the number of sessions that are necessary after evaluating your needs, according to the degree of submental fullness you have and the outcome you seek. On average, you will need between two and four sessions to achieve the desired results.

Each appointment with the physician lasts less than 20 minutes. This is admittedly much easier to fit into a busy schedule than a full convalescence would be!

The treatment, itself, is painless, which is no small advantage. Afterwards, you may experience tingling, numbness, mild swelling and, in some cases, the appearance of bruises.

However, those are the main side effects you can expect, and they’re often quite moderate. Therefore, you can resume your regular activities after the treatment.

The results are quickly visible to the extent that you’ll see a noticeable improvement from one session to the next. With time, around a month or two after the final treatment, you’ll notice a significant reduction in your double chin.

The best part of all is that the results are lasting. Yes, you read right! Once the fat cells are eliminated, they’ll never come back. In short, with this option, you’ll be treating yourself to a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime!
