Sometimes no matter how much you diet and exercise, unfortunately, you can just be stuck with some stubborn areas of fat. Fat-dissolving injections are a non-surgical solution to minimising areas of stubborn fat safely and effectively.
Fat-dissolving is achieved by multiple injections into stubborn areas with injections called DESO. The injection of DESO is what breaks down the fat cell membrane, but we’ll cover DESO in more detail further on.
Fat-dissolving injections aren’t for everyone. They are for those who seek a long-term approach to losing stubborn fat. Unfortunately, some areas of our face and body don’t reduce and tone up with exercise and dieting like other areas.
The injection used in Fat-dissolving is called DESO (deoxycholic acid). In DESO injections, a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid is injected directly into the targeted area helping the body break down and absorb dietary fat.
When deoxycholic acid (DESO) is injected into the fat cells, it starts breaking down the cell membrane and causing the contents of the cell to be released. These contents include triglycerides, which are a type of fat, and other cellular debris. The body then naturally eliminates the fat and debris through its lymphatic system.
Over time, the stubborn fat cells that have been treated with DESO fat-dissolving injections will shrink in size, resulting in a visible reduction in the amount of fat in the treated area. This process can take several weeks to several months, depending on the individual and the extent of the treatment.
Had A Significant Weight Loss – If you have gone through a period of significant fat loss, you may find you have areas of stubborn fat. As your body has already lost weight and fat in this scenario, these smaller more localised areas may need some help to break down the fat cells.
Post-Pregnancy – During pregnancy, the amount of weight you may have gained may differ from each individual. However, after childbirth, you may find your body has stored stubborn fat around the hips, back and abdomen.
Generic Issues – Some people may suffer from a genetic disposition which means they easily store fats and despite any amount of exercise or dietary changes, their body stubbornly stores fat in certain areas. It’s important to remember that DESO injections are not a weight-loss solution and are not recommended for individuals who are significantly overweight or obese. This means they are best suited for people with small, localised areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Results – The results from fat-dissolving injections are not instant. It takes time for your body to break down the fat cells and flush them out, so if you’re looking for a quick fix with instant results, unfortunately, this isn’t for you.
Recovery – Fat-dissolving injections are a long-lasting solution with little to no recovery time and side effects. As this is a non-surgical solution, there will be no anaesthetic, scarring, incision site or complications from stitching.
Side Effects – Some temporary side effects can include mild swelling, bruising and redness in the injection area. However, these will typically reside after a few days.
Multiple Treatments – Fat-Dissolving injections are a procedure that can require more than one treatment. You may find that areas with more stubborn fat such as inner thighs, side of thigh/buttocks and abdomen may take more treatment sessions than areas such as double chin, arms and back.
If you’re struggling to shift stubborn fat from your Jowls, Hips, Arms, Chest, Stomach, and Inner or Outer Thighs, DESO fat-dissolving injections could be your answer. Just remember, this isn’t a quick fix and is not recommended for people who are significantly overweight or obese. This procedure targets stubborn fat pockets by breaking down the fat cells over several weeks and often multiple treatments. The results are long-lasting with little to no recovery time.
If you think fat-dissolving injections could be for you, please ensure that you consult a qualified medical professional to determine if DESO injections are a safe and appropriate option. Your provider will create a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.
