What is DESO Fat Dissolving?

The injections contain deoxycholic acid; an enzyme produced by the body naturally. 

When injected locally into the fatty tissue, it dissolves the outer membrane of the fat cells, causing them to break down and is then safely and naturally excreted from the body over 3 – 6 weeks. 

At our clinic, we are able to target the fat under the chin, also known as the “double chin” to reduce the appearance and size of the area. 

Although results can be seen from one treatment, a course of at least 4 treatments is typically required.
