Sometimes, no matter what type of diet you try or how much exercise you do, it can be a struggle to shift areas of stubborn fat. Don’t feel ashamed of this. Research shows that carrying more stubborn fat can be down to genetics, so don’t be so hard on yourself.
What Are Fat-Dissolving Injections?
Fat-dissolving injections are non-surgical cosmetic procedures designed to reduce stubborn pockets of fat from specific areas of the body. The injection used in this treatment is called Deso, which has an active ingredient deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
What Is The Treatment Procedure?
The treatment journey will initially start with a consultation to discuss your goals, medical history and the areas you want to target. On your treatment day, the area being treated will be cleaned and prepped before a numbing cream is applied.
Using a fine needle, Dr Reham will carefully inject the DESO solution into the target areas. After the injections, you may receive a gentle massage of the treated area. The massage helps to distribute the solution and optimise the results. Depending on your individual needs and treatment goals, multiple sessions may be required to achieve your desired results.
Where Can You Have The Injections?
The most common areas that can be treated with DESO injections include:
The injections can help contour and define the jawline by dissolving excess fat under the chin.
Chest & Stomach
Fat-dissolving injections in the chest and stomach areas can help to contour the stomach area resulting in a more toned and sculpted appearance.
Flanks (Love Handles/Hips)
This area on the sides of the waist, known as love handles, can be treated to achieve a more sculpted appearance.
Inner & Outer Thighs
DESO injections can treat stubborn fat on the inner and outer thighs, helping to improve thigh contour and reduce the appearance of excess fat in that area.
Back (Bra Fat)
Stubborn fat in the upper and lower back can be targeted with DESO injections to achieve a more streamlined back contour.
Upper Arms (Bingo Wings)
Stubborn fat around the upper arms (Bingo Wings)can be dissolved and tighten up the appearance.
What Are The Benefits?
DESO fat-dissolving injections offer several benefits as a non-surgical treatment for fat reduction. Some of the benefits include:
Targeted Fat Reduction:
You can specifically target areas of the body with which you are unhappy.
Contouring and Definition:
By dissolving excess fat, you can contour and define the treated area leading to a more sculpted and toned appearance.
Compared to surgical procedures, most individuals can resume their normal activities shortly after the treatment.
Gradual and Natural-Looking Results:
This gradual process allows for more natural-looking results as the body adjusts to the changes.
With proper maintenance and a healthy lifestyle, the results of DESO injections can be long-lasting.
DESO injections are minimally invasive, involving only small injections into the targeted area.
Is There Any Recovery Time Needed?
Once you have had the treatment, there isn’t any downtime needed. There will be no anaesthetic, scarring, incision, or stitch risk. However, as with any injection, you may experience some side effects such as swelling, bruising and redness around the injection area. These side effects usually subside within 48 hours.
Are Fat Dissolving Injections For Me?
If you have tried healthy eating and exercise, and are still struggling to shift areas of stubborn fat, then fat-dissolving injections could be the one for you.
It is important to remember that the injections work for a healthy weight and are not the best treatment option for someone with large unwanted fat areas. Also, if you’re diabetic, have kidney disease, liver disease or take blood thinners, fat-dissolving injections are not the ideal treatment choice.
