We are so excited to announce the long awaited Allergan Belkyra (aka Kybella in the U.S.) is here, and Laserderm is the first dermatology clinic to offer this treatment in Ottawa. Injections of Deoxycholic acid are performed to the double chin area, 1-3 sessions are recommended depending on how much fat is present and how much fat gets eliminated with each session. The treatment is quick and has only mild discomfort. Our patients who have tried it so far have not needed anesthesia, and there is some minor redness and swelling for a couple days after and possible bruising. This is the perfect season to melt away the fat under the chin, while we are trying to keep warm with our scarves and fur neck warmers! Ask if you are a candidate at your next visit.
