Let’s be bru­tally hon­est: the beauty in­dus­try has let your body down. In the past, its best ef­forts were never-gonna­work cel­lulite creams, in­va­sive and painful tummy tucks, or boob jobs that left you with ob­vi­ous signs of surgery. But this is 2017 and now, if you so de­sire, you can freeze and heat, plump and in­ject, or bom­bard your bits with sound and ra­dio waves, to bully your body into sub­mis­sion – no ex­er­cise or di­et­ing re­quired. So, for our luxe is­sue, we chal­lenged beauty ex­pert

Na­dine Bag­gott to trial the new money-is-no-ob­ject treat­ments that can tackle any body is­sue you could pos­si­bly imag­ine – and a few you prob­a­bly can’t!

The dou­ble- chin jab

Dream of mag­i­cally melt­ing the fat un­der your chin? Now you can with a new in­jec­tion called Belkyra. This sounds scary, but it’s ac­tu­ally straight­for­ward and there’s very lit­tle down­time. Three treat­ments over three months can give you a pos­i­tively chis­elled jaw. What’s more, the skin shrinks back, so you won’t be left with even an inkling of tur­key neck.

how it works A se­ries of in­jec­tions tar­get fatty ar­eas and break them down us­ing an acid found in bile that helps us di­gest food. It’s been used in the US for two years (where it’s known as Ky­bella).

our tester says Aside from a sting­ing sen­sa­tion, it’s pain­less and it re­moves any diet-re­sist­ing chins. Clear your diary for a week af­ter each treat­ment – you may end up look­ing bull­frog-like. Belkyra hits the UK in 2018 (see al­ler­gan.co.uk). From £250 for three ses­sions.
