Deso Body & Deso Face

Non-surgical, next generation of injectable Deoxycholic Acid ‘fat dissolvers’.  Intralipotherapy involves the injection (using cannula) of a fat dissolving substance.

What is Deoxycholic Acid?

Deoxycholic acid when injected benneth the skin, is able to help remove stubborn pockets of fat through the lymphatic system.

Treatment Areas:

Abdomen                   Flanks

Saddlebags               Inner Thighs

Inner Knee                 Arms

Back Rolls                  Chin

Buffalo Hump          Gynaecomastia


To whom do we recommend the treatment?

The treatment is recommended for people who have stubborn unwanted fat deposits.

This is not a weight loss treatment, nor a skin tightening treatment but a volume reduction treatment which dissolves fat deposits.


Weight loss can be carried out along with the treatment.

How many treatments are needed and in what intervals?

On average 2-4 treatments are recommended, depending on the region and the amount of fat tissue. A treatment plan will be discussed with you at your consultation.

The interval between treatments is 6 weeks. 

What are the side effects?

  • Prolonged pain lasting for days or weeks.

  • Allergic reactions (less than 2 in 100,000 cases) which may require emergency treatment.

  • Nodules (can occur in 5-10% of cases) which are usually only transient and resolve as the fatty tissue is removed.

  • Damage to surrounding structures (less than 5 in 10,000 cases), including muscle, nerve or blood vessels.

  • Discolouration (less than 2 in 1,000 cases), usually only temporary and can be reduced by avoiding exposure to UV.

  • Necrosis of the skin (less than 1 in 10,000 cases) describes the damage caused to the skin by the solution if it comes into contact with it, this can lead to tissue death, blistering, sloughing of the skin, infections and scarring.

  • Unsatisfactory results, including stubborn fat, asymmetry, irregularity or loose skin.

What to expect after treatment?

Redness, haematoma (bruising), sensitivity and swelling(can last for 2 weeks) of the treated part are all possible.

In order to prevent excessive swelling, respectively improve the results, support garments are advised and provided after the treatment.

Due to the action of fat dissolving injections, it takes time for the fat to be eliminated from the body and although some results may appear in the first few days it is normal that the final result is not seen until 6 weeks post treatment.

Appropriate clothing should be worn on the day of treatment to allow modest access to the area and not to be too restrictive or cause discomfort.
