Loosing weight can be hard for many. Even with great success you might be left with some stubborn pockets of fat that are hard to shift. DesoFace and DesoBody are your answer to treating stubborn fat that just doesn’t shift with diet and exercise. 

What is stubborn fat dissolving injections?

DesoFace and DesoBody containss Sodium Deoxycholate. When injected into stubborn fat this turns into deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid produced by the liver. Bile acids in bile break down fats. Therefore injecting DesoFace and DesoBody into stubborn fat causes the breakdown of fat cells. 

Where can stubborn fat dissolving injections be used? 

Desoface reduces fat and excess fluids for the right patients, improving areas such as double chins, jowls, and neck.  

Desobody reduces fat from difficult areas such as inner thighs, saddle bags, abdomen, arms, knees, flanks, lipomas, upper and lower back. 

When will I see results after fat dissolving injections?

Although some results may be seen in the first few days, final results may not be seen until 6 weeks after the treatment. 

For most clients, a course of 3-4 treatments on a monthly basis will give the best results depending on the area.

What are the risks and complications of stubborn fat dissolving injections?

Following the injections you might have a bruising, swelling or pain. You might also notice change in your skin colour. Rarely you might have bumps or bleeding to the treated areas. However, our staff will explain this all in detail before your treatment begins. 

Aftercare instructions for stubborn fat dissolving injections

Following fat dissolving injections, we recommend that all patients wear compression garments for at least 72 hours. Moreover, using Arnica cream can help reduce bruising and swelling that can happen.

What to avoid after stubborn fat dissolving injections?

Firstly, you have to void alcohol and hot showers for 24 hours. Secondly, avoid spending time in the sun or use of sunbeds and any beauty or cosmetic treatments in the area for at least a week. 

Although moderate exercise may enhance results, vigorous or physical demanding activity should be avoided for 2 weeks following treatment.
