The field of Aesthetic Medicine is in continuous analysis and evolution. The laboratories investigate to find better solutions to the most frequent aesthetic problems. Thus, we look for products that adapt and integrate better with the tissues, to achieve a more natural and aesthetic effect and with fewer side effects.

Reduce fats with deoxycholic acid

The latest innovation in aesthetics is named Wagneriano and refers to its fat-destroying effect: Belkyra is the commercial name of a drug to undo submental fat , that is, what is commonly known as the jowl. Its active principle is deoxycholic acid, the same acid that secretes the gall bladder to digest the fats we eat. This product was approved in 2015 by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and was initially marketed in the US and Canada under the name of Kybella. This year has arrived in Europe. The launch of this product in Spain is expected for September this year and until then "only duly trained doctors" will be qualified to perform such treatment.


It is already possible to reduce the double chin without surgery


At the forefront of current aesthetic medicine

Belkyra is a treatment indicated mainly for people with submental fat (jowls) and very little laxity, that is, they have smooth skin under the chin. In this way, once the treatment is carried out, the fat will dissolve and the skin will go back without "hanging".

Ultherapy, the perfect complement

After more than two years on the market, Ultherapy has become essential among current cosmetic medicine treatments. The treatment consists of the administration of focused ultrasound with ultrasound guidance in the area that we want to treat. It is approved by the FDA as a "brow lift, dewlap, neck and décolleté". It is a treatment that we should not ignore when we want to redefine the mandibular line.
