Deso Fat Dissolving Injections

The new Deoxycholic Acid (DCA) is designed to treat those difficult localised pockets of fat. In line with similar injectable treatments, the active ingredient is Deoxycholic Acid, proven to reduce fat deposits for the right patients. The product is conveniently separated into a face and body vials Desoface and Desobody and side effects are minimal. It is a non surgical procedure.

It has been shown to be safer, more effective and more comfortable than other older fat dissolvers on the market. 

Mode of Action

DCA leads to cell necrosis. The cell membranes swell and rupture so it does NOT dissolve the fat but destroy the cells.

Results are permanent with a sensible life style as the fat cells are destroyed by the injections.
