Although not entirely new to our product roster, the Deso range including Desoface and Desobody are a staple in our fat dissolver offerings. Exclusive to Fox Pharma, the Deso range has been specially formulated with the active ingredient, Sodium Deoxycholate, to treat localised pockets of fat. Wondering whether to include this fat-dissolving injection in your clinic’s treatment offering? Find out more about Desoface and Desobody in the blog. 

What Is the Deso Range? 

Separated into specially-tailored face and body concentrations, the Deso range is intended to dissolve areas of fat that patients find difficult to lose, despite following a healthy lifestyle. Formulated with Sodium Deoxycholate, the range works to eliminate stubborn fat deposits under the skin.  

Both Desoface and Desobody are efficacious treatments that help to patients to achieve their aesthetic goals, promoting a more sculpted appearance. Some fat deposits including primary, secondary, and pathological-Iatrogenic fats are not susceptible to fat reduction through a healthy diet and exercise, leading patients to opt for fat dissolving injections.  

Deso treatments have been hailed as the next generation of fat dissolvers, formulated with active ingredients such as Sodium Deoxycholate which holds the title of a specialised, FDA-approved medical detergent. Some believe this to be a safer, more effective, and less invasive way to aid in the breakdown of fat cells. 

When treating the body, localised adiposity is reduced, and the appearance of skin firmness is improved. When treating the face, the drainage of excess fluids takes place as well as reduced localised adiposity. This results in fat reduction, improving areas such as the double chin. 

Essentially, Deso is a medically-approved treatment that offers a solution to stubborn fat deposits in the face and body. 

What Is Sodium Deoxycholate? 

Sodium Deoxycholate is the precursor to deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring bile acid found in humans. Its ability to affect cell membranes in adipocytes when injected makes it the perfect primary ingredient for fat dissolving procedures, especially with the Deso range. The main mechanism of Sodium Deoxycholate is to act on the membrane of fat cells which promotes cell lysis -the breakdown of a cell caused by damage to its plasma membrane.  

Sodium deoxycholate also promotes fat absorption and breakdown, which means it is useful for reducing fat stores in the body. 

What Happens During a Deso Procedure? 

The treatment consists of lipolytic application, where injections are made directly into the fatty tissue of the treated area. The active substance causes an inflammatory response from the body to the localised area, further breaking down the fat cells. The destroyed fat cells travel through the bloodstream and to the liver. The liquidised fat cells are excreted out of the system naturally, via micturition through the body’s lymphatic system. This process of fat dissolving injections helps to banish the stubborn cells for a more toned, contoured appearance. 

What Are the Administration Areas of Deso? 

With both Desoface and Desobody, the treatment requires skilled administration. Injections may only be administered subcutaneously, making sure to avoid muscular or dermal tissue. Common treatment areas of Deso include: 

  • Abdomen 
  • Back fat 
  • Saddlebags 
  • Arms 
  • Knees 
  • Top of back
  • Double chin
  • Flanks 

Who Is Suitable for Deso Treatments? 

Desobody and Desoface are ideal fat-dissolving solutions for those who already maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. It should also be noted that these treatments don’t substitute for weight-loss surgery or traditional liposuction and are completely individualised as a solution for stubborn fat. The treatments are most effective for patients who are already close to their ideal body weight but are concerned with pockets of fat that seem resistant to diets and exercise. 

Generally, 2-4 sessions at 4-6 weekly intervals are needed. However, this is subject to the amount of fatty tissue present in the area. One of the easiest methods of assessing whether the treatment is suitable is by assessing the amount of ‘pinchable fat’ in the area. For example, there must be more than 3cm of ‘pinchable’ fat for the treatment to work to its full capability.  

Consultations should always be made with a trained and trusted medical professional before the treatment to confirm that the procedure is suitable. 

How Long Do Results Last?  

The effects of Deso are permanent and your body can maintain a sculpted and toned appearance if a healthy lifestyle is adhered to. The fat cells are permanently broken down and destroyed within the body, however, new fat cells may generate in the same area if a patient stops leading an active lifestyle, regardless of the effects of Deso. 

 The Takeaway 

Overall, Desoface and Desobody prove to be a popular choice for those looking to reduce stubborn areas of fat, for a more defined look. The procedure is relatively pain-free and fast with minimal downtime.  Overall, Deso is primarily favoured due to its overall effectiveness in addressing pinchable deposits of excess fat, offering a safe, non-invasive, and non-surgical fat-reduction treatment.  

The treatments help to successfully sculpt areas that harbour isolated and stubborn fat for patients who wish to avoid traditional surgical options such as liposuction.
