Desoface 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 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 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 Desoface 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 Desoface treatments do I need?

The usual number of Desoface treatments 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. The number of treatment sessions you require will depend on how quickly your body processes the destroyed fat cells.

How much does the Desoface treatment cost?

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

Can this procedure cause cancer?

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

Where can this procedure 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 deso injections?

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

What are the best deso injections?

There are many fat injections available. Popular options include Aqualyx (also known as Motolese’s Soulution); Belkyra; Celluform; Celluform +; and of course, Desobody and Desoface.

Is this procedure 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 ourselves.

What are Aqualyx 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 injections. Our understanding is that 2 to 8 sessions are usually required of Aqualyx.

Does this procedure get rid of cellulite?

No Desoface is not designed to target cellulite. This procedure is a method of tackling localised fat deposits and getting rid of stubborn fat pockets. In other words, it is a way of reducing excess fat, not removing cellulite.

Does this procedure make you lose weight?

Desobody and Desoface are not weight loss treatments. They are designed to reduce pockets of fat, rather than overall weight. If you are considering seeking advice and help with weight loss and build a more balanced, healthy lifestyle you may like to read more about The National Weight Loss Programme treatment we offer.

Does Desoface hurt?

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

How long do these 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 treatment. The active ingredient Sodium deoxycholate will break down cell membrane of the localised pockets of fat and give you more neck definition.

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 a 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 pockets 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

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

The thoughtful touch of a follow-up call post-treatment added a personalised touch that I truly appreciated. Thank you, and I'm definitely looking forward to more sessions!

I had 3 moles removed (one on my face, and two on my body) by Emma. She did a wonderful job and they are healing up beautifully. She is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and I was well informed about the process. Not only that but she put my mind at ease fantastically as I was feeling quite nervous. We were able to laugh and chat throughout the appointment and I actually left in a better mood than when I went in! That is definitely Kudos to Emma (and the lovely staff at the front desk who always made me feel so welcome). Thank you so much.
