What are Fat Dissolving Injections?
Deoxycholic acid has been used in various fields of human medicine and food science. In the human body deoxycholic acid is used in the emulsification of fats. Deoxycholic Acid is a cytolic substance which causes permanent destruction of fat cells in specific areas such as the Chin (sub mental fat) thereby improving the appearance of the “double chin”, neck and jaw line. Deoxycholic acid injections come as a liquid which is injected subcutaneously (just under the skin). You may receive up to 6 additional treatment sessions, each spaced 1 month apart, depending on your condition and outcome. Response is usually seen 3-6 weeks after the injection.
