A Guide to DesoBodyFat-Dissolving Injections
Do you find yourself with certain extra bits of wobbly fat that you just can’t get rid of?
You’re exercising, you’re eating well and yet there are still those last few areas you can’t seem to shift. It’s often the case that no matter how well we eat and how long we spend in the gym there can still be pockets of fat that stubbornly refuse to go away. These areas can include muffin tops, saddlebags, love handles, and back or bra rolls.
The good news is that treating localised areas of fat is easy with fat dissolving injections, a quick and safe non-surgical method of treating fat that remains despite a healthy diet and regular exercise.
How does it work?
Desobody fat-dissolving injections work by destroying fat cells in targeted areas. Also known as lipolytic injections, they damage the fat cell membranes which in turn liquifys the fat present in the body. These fat cells, once destroyed, are then broken down and naturally removed via the lymphatic system within the body.
Is DesoBody different from older fat-dissolving treatments available on the market?
Yes, as DesoBody is a more recent development it uses cutting edge technology in the form of sodium deoxycholate, an FDA approved active ingredient. This formula is a medical detergent that breaks down fat cells in a manner which has been proven to be safer and with greater efficacy than previous solutions. On top of that, it is also a more comfortable and less intrusive process for the patient than older fat-dissolving solutions, with fewer injections required over fewer sites.
What areas can be treated?
DesoBody is for use with areas of fat that remain even when a patient is at a healthy weight. Typical areas include inner thighs, inner knees, double chins, back and bra rolls, flanks, abdomen and saddlebags.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically an average of two to four vials of DesoBody injections are required per treated area, per session. This number will, of course, vary depending on the individual size and type of the area being treated, and the best course for your particular needs will be discussed at a consultation.
Desobody is usually administered over a series of at least three to four sessions, with six-week intervals being the typical gap between each visit. Again, this number will depend on how much fat needs to be treated in a specific area, and the actual number will be discussed at a consultation.
What does DesoBody treatment feel like?
Discomfort and sensitivity are an inevitable part of any cosmetic treatment, but the good news is that symptoms should only be mild to moderate, and easily tolerated. The treatment is minimally invasive and a local anesthetic is included in the injectable and will be administered to lessen the impact of any pain felt during the procedure.
What will happen immediately following treatment?
Initially, the treated area when show signs of redness, tenderness, sensitivity and localised swelling following treatment. The treated area can feel a little weird for a while but this is a perfectly normal part of the process, and you are free to carry on with any normal day to day physical activities and your normal routine.
How long will it take for the skin to return to normal?
The redness and swelling that appear following the injection typically will disappear three or four days after treatment. You may then find that minor bruising and a localised tenderness around the treated area will persist up to 14 days after the treatment.
Are there any do’s and don’ts following DesoBody treatment?
The treatment is a simple and quick procedure and thankfully will have very little impact on your day to day activities. As with any cosmetic surgery, however, there are a few things you need to be mindful of immediately after surgery:
- Patients should avoid hot baths or hot showers on the day they receive the treatment.
- Following the treatment, a compression garment (i.e. spanks) are required to be worn on the treated area for up to 72 hours.
- Using active creams and exfoliants on the treated area should be avoided for at least one week following treatment. You should also avoid using self-tan for at least a week.
Finally, as with any cosmetic surgery, you should be mindful of only using home care products recommended and approved by your doctor or therapist for the entire duration of the healing period following treatment.
How long will it take to see results from the DesoBody treatment?
Typically after two to three weeks you will start to see the positive effects of your treatment. Due to the nature of the injection the solution requires time to take effect, gradually reducing the fat in the affected areas. Each patient’s time frames will differ, but this general guideline will normally apply. Please note that a continued course of treatments is required for optimal results.
How long can I expect the results to last?
Due to the nature of the treatment, the results can be expected to be permanent as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained. DesoBody is actively destroying the fat cells found in the treated area which means once they’re gone, they’re definitely gone.
