Deso is a fat dissolving injection that helps treat localised, stubborn fat on the face and body that just won’t shift with diet and exercise. It is a form of lipolysis, a non-invasive treatment which accelerates the body’s natural fat removal process.
The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid – a bile acid which naturally emulsifies and solubilises dietary fats in the intestine. It is a cytolytic medication which means it helps break down a specific type of cell; in this case fat cells, when injected under the skin to give a slimmer and firmer outcome.
The area of concern is injected with Deso to liquefy (and permanently destroy) fat cells, which drain naturally through the body’s lymphatic system over the course of a few weeks.
Deso is separated into concentrations for the face and the body, and is an effective treatment for double chins, love handles, inner arms, stomach fat, inner thighs, knees and more.
While Deso is not designed to treat obesity, the injectable treatment is a successful solution for targeting specific areas. It is usual for a course of up to 3 sessions to be needed depending on the size of the area.
