There are two types of fat dissolving injection treatments, Desobody and Desoface.
Both types of treatments are Lipolytic Injections (as they are known medically) and destroy fat cells by damaging the fat cell membrane and liquifying the fat in the treatment area. The destroyed fat cells are then broken down and removed naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.
This treatment is used to target areas of the body where stubborn fat may reside. These areas may include abdomen, flanks, back, underarms, inner knees, upper and lower arms, bra fat and inner thighs.
This treatment is used to target areas of the face where stubborn fat may reside. These may include double chins, jowls and neck fat.
We recommend a course of at least 3 – 4 Deso treatment sessions with 6 week intervals. This is dependent on the treatment area and the amount of fat to treat.
DESO BODY and DESO FACE are the next generation of injectable Deoxycholic Acid ‘fat dissolvers’ in the UK.
Deoxycholic acid normally emulsifies and solubilises dietary fats in the intestine, and when injected subcutaneously, it disrupts and destroys fat cells in that tissue making it the perfect agent to remove stubborn pockets of fat. Like most non-surgical fat reducing procedures, intralipotherapy using DESO FACE and BODY is not intended for the obese body but does target the fat at cell level making it one of the most successful formulas for targeting specific areas.
DESO Body/Face are state-of-the-art fat dissolving injectable products designed to treat those difficult localised pockets of fat. Areas that can be treated include a ‘double’ chin, the arms, abdomen, flanks, buttocks, inner knees, thighs and back or bra ‘rolls’. Depending on the area treated and the amount of fat involved, several sessions may be required to achieve the desired result.
Redness in the affected area is common. You may experience bruising and/or swelling. Mild discomfort is common but some may have more prolonged pain. This can be managed and we provide guidance and support throughout your treatment journey. Occasionally, ‘nodules’ may form, but are transient and require no treatment. Should they persist, they may require more focused DESO injection.
The procedure is usually very well tolerated with a small amount of disocomfort. Injecting DESO in the wrong ‘plane’ can trigger sharp pain (e.g. incorrect placement near the skin or muscle). Injection entry points are kept to a minimum for comfort.
