22 Dec What are fat dissolving injections?
Fat-dissolving injections disrupt and destroy fat cells in the tissue making it the perfect agent to remove stubborn pockets of fat. When treating an area of the body, localised fat is reduced and skin firmness is improved. When treating the face, drainage of excess fluids takes place as well as reduced localised fat amounts. Areas that can be treated include a double chin, the arms, abdomen, buttocks, inner knees, thighs and back or bra rolls. Depending on the area treated and the amount of fat involved, several sessions may be required to achieve the desired result. This is something that we will advise you on.
What are the benefits of fat dissolving injections?
More than a third (39%) of aesthetic treatments taking place in beauty salons across the UK, and with fat dissolving tipped to become one of the biggest non-surgical procedures, many can reap the benefits of fat dissolving injections.
This includes natural-looking results without negative side effects like stretch marks, skin discoloration, or scarring. The treatment has even been used to minimize wrinkles in facial areas where excess fat accumulates.
Another key advantage about this non-invasive option is that there’s minimal downtime required; patients who experience pain during or after their sessions can take ibuprofen for relief. This makes it an ideal option for people who want to get rid of the fat on their body but can’t schedule a surgical procedure or don’t want to take prescription medication with unpleasant side effects.
And the best part? It provides long-lasting results because once that fat cells have been destroyed, they’re gone forever. Plus, it is also proven to be safer in comparison to conventional liposuction, which can lead to skin damage because of uneven fat removal and heart problems due to the irregular displacement of fluids.
How does it work?
The acid ‘dissolves’ the walls and membranes of fat cells, allowing the fatty acid inside to be digested and flushed out of the body via the lymphatic system. The procedure is carried out by a medical professional at the Bare Brilliance Clinic and takes around 30 minutes per session. Up to four sessions may be necessary for desired effects to take place. After 6 – 8 weeks, you’ll be able to enjoy the results, leaving skin firmer and slimmer than ever before.
However, it’s important to note that fat dissolving injections are not a solution to weight loss but designed to sculpt and contour the body or face.
Examples of two leading products for fat dissolving injections are DesoFace and DesoBody. These are specifically formulated by chief manufactures to dissolve fat cells that display different genetic makeups around the body for optimal results.

What is Deso Fat Dissolving?
Deso face and Deso body fat dissolving injections are the latest methods in achieving a more desirable and shapely you.

Whereas, Deso body is perfect for removing fat around inner thighs, back, saddle bags, abdomen, arms, knees, top of the back, flanks and lipomas. The injections liquefy the fat in the area being targeted and the dissolved fat flows into the lymphatic system, where it is simply removed from the body. Whether it’s inch loss, body contouring or losing those extra few inches, Bare Brilliance can help. Deso face has been shown to be safer, more effective and more comfortable than other fat dissolvers on the market such as Aqualyx for the double chin area in general.
Any side effects?
As with any cosmetic producer there are some side effects to be aware of when it comes to fat dissolving injections. There are no known severe side effects and complications and patients may notice temporary swelling, mild bruising and redness post-treatment.
