This is a non surgical treatment used to target small areas of excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is typically used in the submental region (double chin) which can make a significant improvement to ones profile and appearance. It can also be used on other areas of the body. The process uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target and permanently destroy the fat cells in the area being treated. No incisions are required, and the downtime is minimal in most cases. Deoxycholic Acid is a synthetic form of a substance naturally present in our bodies that helps us to break down dietary fat. A series of treatments is required at approximately 2 monthly intervals and the results are seen gradually during the course of your treatment. A minimum of two treatments is needed to see results.
