What is the difference between liposuction or SmartLipo of a double chin and Belkyra?

Liposuction involves a minimally invasive surgical procedure with local anesthesia.  There is a special device such as a laser, in the case of SmartLipo, inserted into the fat of the double chin and where the fat is melted. The melted fat is aspirated out and removed.  The advantage of liposuction for a double chin, triple chin or even quadruple chin is the immediate removal of fat in a single stage.  However, it does require between 3 and 7 days of recovery and a modest degree of bruising and discomfort.  Clients seeking a one-time treatment for the removal and improvement of their double chin with modern forms of liposuction, can discuss these options with one of our board certified plastic surgeons.  Clients that want a noticeable improvement of a double chin, but performed subtly without any incision, sutures or recovery over time are good candidates for Belkyra Injectable (also known as Kybella injectable procedures in the US).

What is better, CoolSculpting or UltraShape?

Victoria Park Medispa was one of the first centres in Canada to offer UltraShape – the first treatment that was ever clinically proven to permanently destroy fat cells. UltraShape uses ultrasound technology to eliminate fat in a protocol generally involving three treatments.

In 2013, after extensive testing with positive results, we added CoolSculpting to our selection of body contouring solutions. Due to its superior results, it quickly became our most popular body contouring solution and we added two more CoolSculpting units to keep up with demand – becoming the Medispa with the most CoolSculpting machines in Canada.

Due to our clients obtaining more significant results with less treatments and less discomfort than UltraShape, we decided to exclusively offer CoolSculpting as our non-surgical solution to eliminate stubborn fat.

CoolSculpting’s effectiveness has lead it to be the world’s #1 non-surgical fat reduction procedure. CoolSculpting also has a very high satisfaction rate with 8 out of 10 patients planning to refer friends and family members for a CoolSculpting procedure.*

What is the best solution for treating a double chin?

Victoria Park is pleased to offer multiple options to treat your double chin, this way you can choose the best solution that is right for you, not just the one solution we happen to have.

For cases of a larger double chin (also known as submental fullness), we find that CoolSculpting treatment for double chin can work best. For a smaller double chin, we often recommend Belkyra®. Where there is not an issue of fat, but of skin laxity, we find that Ultherapy or Exilis can work best. We have also found that dermal fillers used for enhancing the jawline can make a big difference in reducing the appearance of double chin.

A consultation with one of our physician specialists where all your questions can be answered is the recommended starting point for determining the treatment program that is just right for you.
