The next generation in fat dissolving, Desoface is an innovative, FDA approved treatment for permanently reducing localised, stubborn pockets of fat for a slimmer, more contoured appearance on the face.
A leading name in the field of Aesthetic medicine, Desoface fat-dissolving injections are scientifically proven and safe treatments to effectively target and reduce your stubborn pockets of fat.
At The Skin to Love Clinic, this treatment is only ever performed by a registered medical professional for your safety and treatment satisfaction.
Desoface is an injectable treatment, with appropriate concentrations of the active ingredient Sodium Deoxycholate in. Sodium deoxycholate is a synthetic form of Deoxycholate Acid (DA), a bile acid which has been used for decades in multiple fields of medicine.
Already present in our bodies, DA emulsifies fat ready for absorption in the gut. When applied subcutaneously via a Desoface treatment, the active ingredient dissolves the treated fat cells which is then eliminated safely by your metabolic system.
Additionally, the Deso fat dissolving treatment injections combine the Sodium Deoxycholate with caffeine and equisetum which promotes lipid catabolism (lipids used to satisfy your body’s need for energy), has a decongestant effect and promotes draining in the treated area. This means that this treatment has the advantage of not only destroying the fat cells, but they are also emptied.
Desoface fat dissolving may be suitable for you if:
Areas that can be treated with Desobody and Desoface:
The usual number of Deso fat dissolving injections required is between 2 and 6. This is dependent on the size of the area being treated. This will be discussed with you at your consultation and assessment prior to treatment.

No. Desoface and Desobody are FDA approved, prescription drugs which do not cause cancer.
Desoface treatment is used on the face to reduce fat in areas such as the double chin and sculpt pockets of unwanted fat, such as the jowls. Desobody fat dissolving can be used to sculpt fat and reduce fat on the body, including areas such as thighs; stomach; upper arms; saddle bags; flanks; the top of your back; and knees.
Desoface and Desobody are prescription drugs so should be administered by a registered medical professional.
There are many fat injections available. Popular fat dissolving injections include Aqualyx (also known as Motolese’s Soulution); Belkyra; Celluform; Celluform +; and of course, Desobody and Desoface. At Skin to Love, we’ve chosen the Deso range of fat dissolving injections because it is the next generation of fat dissolving injections.
Yes. At our Hertfordshire clinic we only ever offer treatments that have safety clearances and clinical papers to support their results and offer a good safety profile. We would never offer you a treatment that we wouldn’t offer our friends, family or have ourselves.
Aqualyx is another brand of fat dissolving injection. It is a different solution to Desobody and Desoface., however it does also include deoxycholic acid, much like Deso fat dissolving injections. Our understanding is that 2 to 8 sessions are usually required of Aqualyx.
Desobody is not designed to target cellulite.
Desobody and Desoface are not weight loss treatments. They are designed to reduce pockets of fat, rather than over all weight. If you are considering seeking advice and help with weight loss, you may like to read more about The National Weight Loss Programme treatment we offer.
No, clients do not report that our fat dissolving injections cause them pain.
This is dependent on you and your metabolism. Many people notice their final result a few weeks after their final session, with many seeing changes and improvements during their course of treatments.
The most common side effects of this treatment are associated with the injections; slight discomfort and a feeling of warmth in the treatment area. The treated area may be pink or feel a little uncomfortable for a few hours.
Swelling and tenderness may be noticed after the treatment and may be noticed for several days post treatment.
As with all injectable treatments, there is the risk of bruising in and around the area that you are having treated. This will resolve at the normal speed a bruise recovers for you usually.
Extremely rare side effects include an allergic reaction with less than a 0.002% risk; irregularities with a risk of less than 0.03%; abnormal nerve sensations with a risk of less than 0.01%; and hyperpigmentation with the risk of less than 0.002%.
Yes. Desoface and Desobody have clinical papers evidencing their efficacy. The treated fat cells that are broken down and metabolised cannot grow back. If you gain weight or have an unstable diet, nearby fat cells can become larger; this can be improved with further Deso injections or by improving your lifestyle with exercise and healthy eating.
