Skintec DesoBody

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.

The active ingredient is Deoxycholic Acid, proven to reduce fat deposits for the right patients. The product is conveniently separated into a face and body concentration and side effects are minimal.

When treating the face, drainage of excess fluids takes place as well as reduced localised fat amounts.

This treatment requires skill with administration to obtain the best results. Injections may only be administered subcutaneously, avoiding muscular or dermal tissue. Only a qualified and appropriately trained Doctor/Nurse should be administering this treatment,

Frequently Asked Questions

Deso Face is a non-surgical, fat dissolving treatment designed to target localised, stubborn pockets of fat in the face and neck.

This treatment is particularly useful for tackling localised fat deposits around the jaw and neck to improve the ‘double chin’ appearance and give you an improved jawline and neck definition.

Risks of DESO treatment are extremely small, but these include redness, pain, irritation, allergic reaction, pigmentation, tissue necrosis (very rare) and temporary nodules. There are special aftercare instructions you would have to adhere to and the drainage of the treated fat cells can be improved by adding other therapies (e.g. compression and/or ultrasound).

Examples of treatment regimes are given below.

It is best to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy alcohol in the first 24hrs after treatment. Exercise is otherwise acceptable. We would always encourage adherence to recommended guidelines on alcohol consumption, both for general wellbeing and preserving facial/body aesthetics.

Following DESO fat dissolving injections we would advise that you:

  • Avoid Aspirin for pain to reduce the risk of bruising or bleeding. Paracetamol is acceptable. Intermittent cooling with ice can be used by applying for 5 minutes post-procedure. A simple fan can also be helpful for discomfort.
  • Bruising may occur. Avoid direct sunlight, sunbeds and heat therapies during the treatment period.
  • Avoid hot baths and showers (tepid water only) for 5 days.
  • Nodules are not uncommon. They can last up to a month and usually disappear without any intervention. However, your Practitioner would need to assess anything unusual.
  • A compression garment may be worn for 2-5 days following treatment (this will be guided by your Practitioner’s recommendation).
  • Contact your Aesthetic Practitioner with any concerns without delay.
