DESOFACE and DESOBODY are fat-dissolving injections that work by breaking down fat cells in targeted areas. Also known as lipolytic injections, they damage the fat cell membranes through an inflammatory process.
These fat cells, once destroyed, are then broken down and naturally removed via the lymphatic system within the body and cause a microscopic fibrotic reaction that tightens the skin.
The treatments are also considered very safe.
TO GET RID OF SOME STUBBORN AREAS OF FAT?
You’re exercising, you’re eating clean and yet there are still those stubborn areas of fat that just won’t go.
The good news is that treating localised areas of fat is easy with fat dissolving injections, a quick and safe non-surgical method which is permanent fat reduction.
DESOFACE - for stubborn areas of fat on the face.
DESOBODY - for stubborn areas of fat on the body.
IS DESOFACE/DESOBODY DIFFERENT FROM OLDER FAT-DISSOLVING TREATMENTS AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET?
Yes, as this product is a more recent development it uses cutting edge technology in the form of sodium deoxycholate, an MHRA approved active ingredient. This formula is a medical detergent that breaks down fat cells in a manner which has been proven to be safer and with greater efficacy than previous solutions. On top of that, it is also a more comfortable and less intrusive process for the patient than older fat-dissolving solutions which caused more swelling and pain.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
DESOFACE can be used in the jowls, cheeks and double chin area.
DESOBODY is for use on areas of stubborn body fat, inner thighs, inner knees, back and bra rolls, flanks, abdomen and arms.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Typically, an average of two to four treatments are suggested for both DESOFACE and DESOBODY although this can vary on the degree of improvement needed. Treatments are performed at least 3 weeks apart. Again, this number will depend on how much fat needs to be treated in a specific area, and the actual number will be discussed at a consultation.
HOW MUCH DOES EACH TREATMENT COST?
DESOFACE treatments start from £150 a session with the cost of DESOBODY starting at £200 a session.
WHAT DOES DESOFACE/DESOBODY TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Discomfort and sensitivity are an inevitable part of any cosmetic treatment, but the good news is that symptoms should only be mild to moderate, and easily tolerated. The treatment is minimally invasive and a local anaesthetic is included in the injectable and will be administered to lessen the impact of any pain felt during the procedure. As the concentration of the product is higher in DESOBODY, there is more pain and swelling when using this product.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING TREATMENT?
Initially, the treated area will show signs of redness, tenderness and localised swelling following treatment. Take it steady, avoid strenuous activities, sun beds, saunas and seek our doctors medical advice with any queries you may have.
