Deoxycholic Acid Injections
The treatment takes about 30 minutes in total. Topical numbing is applied to help with the discomfort during the injection. The product is administered through a series of tiny injections into the desired treatment area. We apply a temporary tattoo as a visual guide to ensure the optimal distribution of the product. After injection, the patient experiences a warm or burning sensation that subsides within several minutes. Ice packs are applied to combat that temporary sensation. The fat destruction process occurs over the next several days and the final results manifest over the following 12 weeks.
Tip 1: This product is not specific to fat cells, so if it is injected carelessly or improperly, side effects can occur. Be sure to choose a medical professional with adequate training and experience.
