Deso Face Fat Dissolving

Deso Face Fat Dissolving

DESO FACE is a fat dissolving treatment to reduce chin and jowl fat within 4-6 weeks. A course of three sessions is recommended but each treatment is reviewed and less may be appropriate.

DesoFace is the next generation of injectable Deoxycholic Acid ‘fat dissolvers’ in the UK.

In line with similar injectable treatments like Aqualyx®, the active ingredient is Deoxycholic Acid, proven to reduce fat deposits for the right patients. The product is conveniently separated into a face and body concentration and side effects are minimal. In addition, DESO is known to result in much less swelling than Aqualyx®.

When treating the face, drainage of excess fluids takes place as well as reduced localised fat amounts.

This treatment requires skill with administration to obtain the best results. Injections may only be administered subcutaneously, avoiding muscular or dermal tissue.

DESO is manufactured by LOVE Cosmedical (Italy) and is available in two concentrations of sodium deoxycholate suitable for either the face or the body.

What is Deoxycholic Acid?

Deoxycholic acid normally emulsifies and solubilises dietary fats in the intestine, and when injected subcutaneously, it disrupts and destroys fat cells in that tissue making it the perfect agent to remove stubborn pockets of fat. Like most non-surgical fat reducing procedures, intralipotherapy using DESO FACE is not intended for the obese body but does target the fat at cell level making it one of the most successful formulas for targeting specific areas.

Side Effects & Complications

Serious risks of DESO treatment are extremely small, but these include  redness, pain, numbness, irritation, allergic reaction, pigmentation, tissue necrosis (very rare) and temporary nodules. There are special aftercare instructions you would have to adhere to and the drainage of the treated fat cells can be improved by adding other therapies (e.g. compression and/or ultrasound).


DESO injections are contraindicated in pregnancy and breastfeeding, acute/untreated hormonal disorders (e.g untreated thyroid disease, advanced organ disease (e.g. renal/hepatic failure), allergy to the substance or materials necessary for the procedure, severe autoimmune disease, immunosuppression, active infection and Body Dismorphic Disorder (BDD).


A thorough consultation is essential to establish 1) an appropriate indication and 2) no barriers to treatment. You have the opportunity to leave things as they are to consider matters further (a ‘cooling off’ period), or to proceed with treatment on the day following fully informed written consent. This means that following thorough discussion, you consent to the treatment with full understanding of the benefits and risks.

A cannula is used to reduce the bruising risk and lidocaine is included to increase comfort during the treatment. Treatment takes 15 minutes.
