Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS DESOFACE® or DESOBODY®?
DESO® is the next innovative generation of 'fat dissolvers' designed to treat and reduce localised 'pockets' of fat.
HOW IS DESO® DIFFERENT FROM OTHER FAT DISSOLVERS?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DESOFACE® + DESOBODY®?
DESOBODY® is designed for the body, whereas DESOFACE® is designed for the face. The concentration of the active substance within the products differs to offer a customised, safe result.
WHAT IS THE ACTIVE SUBSTANCE IN DESO®?
The active substance that 'dissolves' the fat is deoxycholic acid. This is a synthetic form of a substance your body makes that helps to absorb fats.
HOW DOES DESO® WORK?
Deoxycholic acid acts on the membrane of fat cells via a mechanism of action known as 'cell lysis' (breaking down the cell), literally destroying the cells and solubilising cellular and membrane components. The destroyed fat cells are then broken down and removed naturally from the body via the lymphatic system.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
DESO® is used to reduce fat, slim and contour areas that are generally resistant to exercise. These include:
- Bra fat/Upper Back Rolls
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Depends upon the area(s) being treated. Under the chin takes around 30 minutes, whereas treating the abdomen or thighs may take a little longer.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
The procedure itself is painless. After 15 minutes, you may experience itching, redness and mild swelling of the treated area(s) - this is because the product is starting to disrupt the fat cells so they release their contents which results in inflammatory necrosis of the cell and reduction in the size of adipocytes (fat cells). Therefore, this initial swelling and redness it is perfectly normal and even expected.
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD - OR SHOULDN'T DO - PRIOR TO THE TREATMENT?
We advise you not to drink alcohol or take Ibuprofen within the preceding 24hours of your appointment, as this can increase the risk of bruising.
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD - OR SHOULDN'T DO - AFTER THE TREATMENT?
- Do not massage the treated area for 48 hours following treatment
ANY RISKS OR SIDE-EFFECTS?
Most common risks and side effects are associated with injection of the product itself - that is, slight discomfort and a possible slight 'burning' sensation.
EXTREMELY RARE SIDE EFFECTS
There is a theoretical risk of infection, but this is extremely rare due to the aseptic technique used during the procedure. It has never occurred.
IS THERE ANYBODY WHO CANNOT HAVE DESO®?
You cannot have DESO if:
IS DESO® SUITABLE FOR ME?
Our clinician will advise as to whether DESO®is suitable for you. There must be more than 1.5cm of 'pinchable' fat in the area(s) to be treated.
HOW IS THE TREATMENT PERFORMED?
The area will be numbed using topical anaesthetic.
Then using a needle and a blunt cannula, a firm grip of the area being treated the DesoBody or DesoFace product is injected. You may feel a little stinging but there shouldn't be any pain.
