Deso Body and Deso Face Fat Dissolving Injections

Fat Dissolving Injections at SkinSpirit

Fat dissolving injections are a safe and effective way to target stubborn areas of fat that diet and exercise seem ineffective at reducing. Specific pockets of fat on the stomach, chin, arms and elsewhere on the body can be treated with Deso face and body fat dissolving injections at SkinSpirit. As with all our injectable treatments at the clinic, fat dissolving injections are carried out by our aesthetic doctor – Dr Sagar. Deso fat dissolving injections are suitable for both men and women. This is a non-surgical procedure which usually requires 2 - 4 treatments for optimum effectiveness but you will be able to see improvements following your first treatment. It is commonly used to treat double chins, back fat or bra folds, lower buttocks, upper arms (particularly bingo wings), hips, knees, stomach and sides (love handles). This is a versatile treatment that enables multiple areas to be injected within one appointment, delivering impressive results. Don’t let those stubborn pockets of fat win – Deso fat dissolving injections are an efficient and effective way of targeting specific areas of fat on the face and body.



  • Safe and effective
  • A great way to tackle stubborn, localised pockets of fat
  • A non-surgical treatment that can be used to treat many areas of the body



Treatment Details

Deso fat dissolving injections for the face and body work by liquidating the fat cells that make up small pockets of fat, breaking them down so that your body can remove the waste product naturally through the lymphatic drainage system. This technique can only be used on small, specific areas of fat and treatment must be carried out by a medically trained professional.

We usually anticipate that 2 – 4 treatments per area will be required to achieve the very best results, but Dr Sagar will discuss your personal treatment plan with you during your initial consultation.

Following your initial consultation to establish your goals and the best treatment plan, Dr Sagar will clean the area/s to be treated and apply a numbing cream to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your appointment. The area is disinfected and then marked in a grid-style format. This enables Dr Sagar to position the injections effectively.

Small injections will then be administered into the area of fat. This shouldn’t cause too much pain due to the numbing cream. Dr Sagar will carry out a post-injection massage to optimise treatment results.

Science & Technology

The active ingredient is Deso fat dissolving injections in 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.

Whilst you are able to return to your normal daily activities after treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling and bruising, and the treated area will feel tender / mildly uncomfortable for up to 2 weeks. In rare cases, some patients experience more prolonged pain, which can be managed with our support and guidance. We’re here for every step of your treatment journey.

Nodules are not uncommon following your treatment. They can last up to a month but usually disappear without any intervention. If you have any concerns, a doctor or practitioner can examine the treated area and offer advice.

We advise that you avoid aspirin as a form of pain relief, but paracetamol is acceptable. You may also use intermittent ice / cool packs in 5-minute sessions after your procedure or use a fan to keep you and the treated area cool and comfortable.

We do advise that you avoid any strenuous activities or exercise for at least 7 days post-treatment, and you must also avoid hot baths, steam rooms, saunas, direct sun light or sunbeds for at least 5 days. 

A compression garment may be worn for 2 – 5 days post-treatment, but your doctor will let you know if this is necessary.

If you are having an area treated that will be visible to others, please be aware that there may be visible bruising and swelling for around 7 days following each treatment, but you must avoid applying and cosmetics or makeup for at least 24 hours.

As with all treatments, some people experience side-effects that don’t affect others. Below are some of the possible side-effects from fat dissolving injections:

  • Pain / discomfort lasting a few weeks
  • Allergic reaction
  • Nodules, which usually disappear on their own
  • Results not as expected, such as loose skin or extremely stubborn fat
