Fat dissolving injections , Deoxycholic Acid, can help you to achieve a slimmer, more contoured body shape, with long-lasting results. Most commonly it. is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” Off label, it can also be used effectively to treat other stubborn fat pockets such as “Bra fat” on back and “the banana roll” just below the buttocks or for contouring areas such as the jawline and jowls.
Treatment usually requires more than one vial and 2-3 sessions, 6 weeks apart. Results can be seen as soon as 3 weeks , but maximum results will be seen at 6 weeks. Common side effects are swelling, temporary numbness and discomfort. At Advanced SkinCare we use a lidocaine mixture to minimize the discomfort.
