DesoFace and DesoBody – Fat Reducing treatment by Intralipotherapy

The new Deoxycholic Acid fat dissolving injection is designed to treat those difficult localised pockets of fat, for example, double chin. In line with similar injectable treatments, 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, DesoFace and DesoBody, side effects are minimal.

The sterile solution is indicated for localized adiposity of the face, neck and body.  When treating the body localised adiposity is reduced and skin firmness is improved.  When treating the face, drainage of excess fluids takes place as well as reduced localised adiposity.

What does it feel like?

As it is a medical, minimally invasive treatment there may be some level of mild to moderate discomfort or sensitivity especially at the start of the treatment, but it shouldn’t be painful and is easily tolerated. The injectable does contain a local anaesthetic inside to minimise discomfort as much as possible.

What can I expect immediately after my Deso treatment?

The treatment may be followed by initial redness, localised swelling, bruising, tenderness and sensitivity in the treated area that will generally resolve in up to 10-14 days. Some patients describe feeling “strange” – this is the inflammatory response and is completely normal. You may continue with normal day to day activities and physical activity

How long before I see results?

Each patient is different however you should start seeing results from 3 weeks after your treatment. The gradual action of the solution needs time to achieve the treatment aim. A course of treatments is required for optimal fat reduction results.

  • Patients need to wear a compression garment after the treatment for 72 hours e.g. chin support or spanks
  • Your normal daily routine may carry on and you may exercise as normal.
  • Avoid hot showers or baths on the day of your treatments
  • Only use the home care products recommended by your Practitioner for the duration of your healing period and avoid active creams and exfoliants for 1 week until the skin has fully healed. Avoid self-tan in the area for at least a week.

How long will the results last?

Results are permanent with a sensible lifestyle, as the fat cells will have been destroyed
