Frequently Asked Questions

How do DesoFace and DesoBody fat-dissolving injections work?

DesoFace and DesoBody injections damage the fat cell membranes and liquify the fat in the treatment area. The destroyed fat cells are broken down and make their way to the lymphatic system, where they are naturally dissolved and expelled by the body.

Who is a good candidate for DesoFace and DesoBody fat-dissolving injections?

This treatment is most effective for clients whose bodyweight is normal for their height or who are perhaps slightly overweight but struggle to get rid of stubborn, localised pockets of fat despite a healthy diet and exercise regime. DesoFace and DesoBody are not treatments for general weight loss.

What are the side-effects of fat-dissolving injections?

While side-effects are minimal they can include redness, localised swelling, mild bruising, tenderness, and sensitivity in the treated area. Many clients tell us they continue with their day-to-day activities immediately after treatment.

How many DesoFace and DesoBody treatment sessions will I need?

The number of sessions for optimal results depends on the area being treated and the amount of fat to be dissolved. We will discuss this during your in-depth consultation.

When will I see the results of DesoFace and DesoBody fat-dissolving injections and how long do they last?

You should start seeing results within 2 – 3 weeks of your initial treatment, however this varies from person to person. The fat cells targeted by this treatment are destroyed, so if a sensible lifestyle is maintained the results can be permanent.

“I went to Sophie for an initial consultation and she spent a lot of time explaining the procedures that would give me the results I was looking for. A few weeks later I went back for the treatments and I am thrilled with the results. Many thanks Sophie for your patience and understanding.”
