fat-dissolving injections

Deso Fat-Dissolving Injections

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.

Deso Fat Dissolving Injections

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:

  • You want to subtly sculpt and reshape an area of your face.
  • Reduce the size of your ‘double chin’.
  • You want inch loss rather than weight loss.

Areas that can be treated with Desobody and Desoface:

  • Double chin
  • Jowls

How many fat dissolving injections do I need?

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.

How much do fat dissolving injections cost?

Deso fat dissolving treatments at The Skin to Love Clinic in Hertfordshire start at £200.

Can fat dissolving injections cause cancer?

No. Desoface and Desobody are FDA approved, prescription drugs which do not cause cancer.

Where can fat dissolving injections be used?

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.

Who can administer fat dissolving injections?

Desoface and Desobody are prescription drugs so should be administered by a registered medical professional.

What is the best fat dissolving injections?

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.

Are fat dissolving injections safe?

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.

What is Aqualyx fat dissolving injections?

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.

Do fat dissolving injections get rid of cellulite?

Desobody is not designed to target cellulite.

Do fat dissolving injections make you lose weight?

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.

Do fat dissolving injections hurt?

No, clients do not report that our fat dissolving injections cause them pain.

How long do fat dissolving injections take to work?

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.

What are the side effects of fat dissolving injections?

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%.

Do fat dissolving injections really work?

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.

Starting from £200

Two to six sessions, depending on the size of the area, at 5 to 6 weekly intervals

Procedure time
Depends on area treated. Approximately 20 minutes for the double chin area

Final results
Usually a few weeks after your final treatment session. However, it is dependent on your individual metabolic process so it will take a different amount of time for the individual

Recovery time
2 to 4 weeks. After this time, we would expect any pinkness, feelings of tenderness and any potential bruising to have subsided

I'm claustrophobic so didn't like having my eyes completely covered, however, Jane was so patient & understanding & dealt with the situation brilliantly so I could have the treatment. It was a so easy in the end, took minutes, & nothing to worry about at all.

I cannot recommend the team the innovation and treatments more highly than at the Skin To Love Clinic. They are at the cutting edge of beauty and have new ways and procedures that make your skin look beautiful. I've spent many years on Harley and Wimpole street and assumed you couldn't get this level of investment and treatments anywhere else but the Skin the Love clinic not only offer every top treatment but the Jane and Sue are so skillful and have a real eye for what will work for you. Their mini thread lift is incredible as is their 'vampire' treatment but skin since I have moved to St Albans has improved dramatically

I have several issues with my skin and have been working with my doctor to deal with them. He referred me to a Dermatologist who advised on the treatment I needed. It took me a while to find the right place with the level of expertise that I needed and The Skin to Love Clinic ticked all of the boxes. My first experience with The Skin to Love Clinic was about 2 years ago. I had a consultation with Jane and immediately knew I was in good hands. I had a series of Fraxel laser which dealt with the issue as well as improved the quality of my skin. I am now dealing with a different issue and without hesitation made an appointment with Jane. What a relief to know that once again, I will be in the best hands and get the most appropriate treatment for my skin, not only dealing with the issue but also improving the health of my skin at the same time.About 4 years ago, I had threads from a well known Clinic in Harley Street. The process was extremely painful, left me with a lot of bruising, a disfigured face and took at least 6 weeks to recover. For the first 1 - 2 weeks I could hardly open my mouth, getting my toothbrush into my mouth was painful.2 weeks ago (with much trepidation) I had threads at Skin to Love. The difference was remarkable. This is a cosmetic procedure so when the threads are inserted, there is some discomfort. However, it was a far cry from the extreme pain from the Harley Street clinic. I had 1 pale yellow bruise about the size of 50p, no disfiguration and went out for dinner that night! My face was tender to touch for about 1 week but definitely not painful. I could see the results straight away and as time passes, it gets better. Thank you Jane for being so patient with me. I was so scared but now know I didn't need to be.

Exceptionally positive experience:* A consultation is required to determine whether the requested treatment is suitable for me. This reassured me of their expertise and integrity (that they wouldn't just push any treatment on me)* Specialist Jane is clearly an expert on the Clear&Brilliant treatment and provided me with a comprehensive insight in the procedure + follow-up care and answered all my questions* Tomorrow I'll receive a check-in call, which shows their level of attentiveness* Reception staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful* So far my Clear and Brilliant treatment looks good, will see results in 2-4 weeks

I made the mistake of buying a product called Eyesential; an under eye enhancer which temporarily erases puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles in minutes and lasts for up to 8 hours. I used this product for a period of 7 years. During this time, the skin under and around my eyes became thinner, reddened, chronically dry and intensely wrinkled. I thought there was nothing I could do and would be left like this. I felt so depressed. Then one day when I was in The Skin to Love Clinic having treatment for Laser Hair Removal; I was informed about Thermage for the very first time. I now have this procedure done yearly. Jane has brought my skin back to its original state and more. My confidence has come back and I feel a so much happier. This treatment really works!

Emma is so professional and kind. At an initial consultation with her on a viral wart on my face, Emma explained my options and the procedure carefully and thoroughly. Afterwards I tried various lotions and wart removal products, but to no avail. Three months later I saw Emma again. It only took her a few minutes to surgically remove my wart. It was done with such a precision that my skin has been recovering really quickly and well. I highly recommend Emma!

Would recommend, had a consultation by the nurse , very informative and all staff are extremely knowledgeable of their treatments. Not pushy in selling products or services , the look and feel of the store is very warm and welcoming. I am looking forward to getting treatments there.Update in 4/10/2021 - after going to mobile therapists and now here, I must say there is a big difference ! much much more professional and great customer service - I have had anti wrinkle injections and was reassured this will work and it has! ( I had deep frown lines) worth the bit of extra money for sure!
