What is Desobody?

Sodium Deoxycholate is a precursor to deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring bile acid present within the body. It’s ability to affect cell membranes in adipocytes when injected makes it perfect for fat dissolving procedures. This treatment requires skill with administration. Injections may only be administered subcutaneously, making sure to avoid muscular or dermal tissue.


Desobody is a product used for a treatment called injection lipolysis. Lipolysis literally means fat-dissolving and that is what the injection of Desobody into targeted areas will do over a course of treatments. The active ingredient is called sodium deoxycholate (deoxycholic acid) which is a special medical detergent which breaks down fat cells. It has a concentration of 1.25% sodium deoxycholate in Desobody. Deso face is a slightly different product with a lower concentration of sodium deoxycholate (0.5%) specifically designed for treating double chins,

When treating the body, localised adiposity is reduced, and skin firmness is improved. Desobody reduces fat from difficult areas such as inner thighs, back fat, saddle bags, abdomen, arms, knees, top of the back, flanks and lipomas. When treating the face, the drainage of excess fluids takes place as well as reduced localised adiposity resulting in fat reduction for the right patients and improving areas such as double chin.

What does the treatment involve?

Treatment with Desobody uses a thin cannula (non-sharp needle) which is placed under the skin through a single
insertion point. This means that we can evenly deliver the active ingredient in a fan-like pattern across the whole area where we are wanting to dissolve the fat cells. The amount of Desobody needed will depend on the size of
the area(s) being treated. Each session will take around 45 minutes.

Is this treatment to lose weight?


The process is not a weight management therapy but to correct the amount of fat in certain areas. To
lose one kilogram of fat you need to burn 9000 calories. After the destruction of the fat cells, triglyceride may be excreted in the urine, through the bowel and will metabolised by the liver and may be relocated. Results are permanent with a sensible life style as the fat cells are destroyed by the injections.
