So, you’ve heard of BELKYRA® injections for getting rid of the fat underneath your chin, but you feel a little intimidated by the after effects of the procedure. No need to worry! We’re here to let you know what to expect once your first BELKYRA® appointment is all finished up.
- Know What’s Normal And What’s Not
While BELKYRA® is a well-tolerated procedure, it is associated with some uncomfortable side-effects during treatment. After your appointment, you’ll likely feel a pressure or stinging, and your chin may swell up. Another normal side-effect of BELKYRA®? A loose or jiggly feeling underneath the chin, which will probably feel pretty weird at first. To minimize pain and swelling after receiving the injections, some patients find icing the area to be quite helpful. If you do decide to treat yourself with ice, you’ll be able to tell really quickly if something doesn’t feel right. Always remember to listen to your body. What works for someone else might not work for you.
- Plan Your Schedule Accordingly
BELKYRA® neck contouring can cause swelling for up to two weeks after your appointment, making your neck look temporarily bigger before you see results. Because of this, you’ll probably want to schedule your double chin treatment around any events you may have like a milestone birthday party or a fundraiser. In the meantime, you’re obviously not going to hide out in your house until the swelling goes down! Wearing a neck scarf is helpful for covering up the swollen chin, which you will receive as a complimentary gift following your procedure.
- We’re There For You
There’s nothing worse than going in for what probably feels like an intimidating cosmetic procedure, only to feel like you’ve been abandoned by your BELKYRA® provider afterwards.
