Elevate Magazine: Non Invasive Neck Treatments | Nov/Dec 2016
The skin of the neck is delicate and ages more quickly than other areas of the body, so it’s no surprise that new treatments are surfacing to combat neck-specific issues. If you’re currently hiding your neck under turtleneck sweaters and scarves to stay warm, it’s the perfect time to try some of these non-invasive neck treatments.
When it comes to necks, patients in their 20s spend less time worrying about how their skin is aging and are typically more concerned with the appearance of their profile image.
Creating a steeper contour and banishing stubborn fat from the chin is a common reason why twenty-somethings finds themselves in the medical clinic. When it comes to double chins, Dr. Lisa Kellett, MD, FRCP, DABD of DLK on Avenue in Toronto recommends Belkyra. Belkyra is a new-to-Canada injectable treatment that destroys the membranes of fat cells to redefine the jawline and slim the chin without surgery.
The body is able to naturally process the dead fat cells over the weeks that follow. “Most patients will need two to four treatments, done approximately every four weeks,” says Dr. Kellett.
