Are Fat Dissolving Injections right for me?
What are Fat Dissolving Injections?
Fat-dissolving injections (We use DesoBody) work by destroying fat cells by disrupting their membrane and liquefying the fat in the area treated. We can use this treatment to target stubborn pockets of fat including,
double chins, abdominal fat, love handles, bra fat, saddlebags, as well as other areas.
This is done by the active ingredient sodium deoxycholate (deoxycholic acid) which is a FDA- approved, medical detergent. The destroyed fat cells are then removed by your body's lymphatic system. Results are permanent as the fat cells have been destroyed.
Deso Body is one of the newest Fat Injections on the market. It has been shown to be safer, more effective, and more comfortable than other older fat dissolvers on the market. With Deso Body you get less swelling and downtime compared to other dissolvers.
How do Fat Dissolving Injections work?
All treatments begin with a consultation of the areas you wish to target. We run through your medical history to make sure the treatment is safe for you to have done, and discuss all the possible side effects and their management.
The treatment itself is done be injecting Deso Body into the fat we wish to remove. Anaesthetic is used to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
