Fat-Dissolving Injections with Dr Tracey Xu at Angels Twelve

I exercise and eat a healthy diet but no matter what I do I can’t lose weight on my tummy.

I really hate my double chin and even when I lose weight it still stays there.

After I had my baby, I got back into shape healthily but stubborn fat around the sides of my tummy just won’t go away.

Sounds familiar?

You are not alone. No one in the world, if they are completely honest, are completely happy with their body, everyone has areas that they don’t like.If you’ve gained a few extra pounds during lockdown (who hasn’t) and this fat has accumulated around those stubborn areas, don’t worry we are here to help.

Book an appointment with Dr Tracey for a consultation she will advise and explain the benefits of fat dissolving injections and if it will be right for you.


Dr.Tracey answers all you need to know about fat dissolving treatment .

Is this for me?Fat dissolving injection is a quick and safe non-surgical method of treating fat that remains despite a healthy diet and regular exercise.

If you’re exercising, eating well and yet there are still those last few areas you can’t seem to shift, then this treatment is for you. 

How does it work?

Desobody fat-dissolving injections work by destroying fat cells in targeted areas. Literally, they damage the fat cell membranes which in turn liquifies the fat present in the body. 

These fat cells, once destroyed, are then broken down and naturally removed via the lymphatic system within the body.

Is DesoBody different from older fat-dissolving treatments available on the market?

Yes, Desoface and Desobody are the next generation of fat dissolvers, they are a potent, purified form of the fat dissolving chemical, an FDA approved active ingredient. They are a more comfortable and less intrusive process for the patient than older fat-dissolving solutions, with fewer injections required over fewer sites.

Which areas can be treated?

Typical areas that can be treated by DesoBody or DesoFace include inner thighs, inner knees, double chins, back and bra rolls, flanks, abdomen and saddlebags.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically, an average of two to four vials of DesoBody injections are required per treated area, per session.  This number will, of course, vary depending on the individual size and type of the area being treated, and the best course for your particular needs will be discussed at a consultation.You would normally need at least three sessions, with six-week intervals being the typical gap between each visit. Again, this number will depend on how much fat needs to be treated in a specific area, and the actual number will be discussed at a consultation.

What does DesoBody treatment feel like?

Discomfort and sensitivity are an inevitable part of any cosmetic treatment, but the good news is that symptoms should only be mild to moderate, and easily tolerated. The treatment is minimally invasive and a local anesthetic is included in the injectable and will be administered to lessen the impact of any pain felt during the procedure.


What will happen immediately following treatment?

Initially, the treated area could show signs of redness, tenderness, sensitivity and localized swelling. The treated area can feel a little weird for a while but this is a perfectly normal part of the process, and you are free to carry on with any normal day to day physical activities and your normal routine.

How long will it take for the skin to return to normal?

The redness and swelling that appear following the injection typically will disappear three or four days after treatment. You may then find that minor bruising and a localized tenderness around the treated area will persist up to 14 days after the treatment.

Are there any do’s and don’ts following the treatment?

Avoid hot baths or hot showers on the day of the treatment.

Wear a compression garment (i.e. Spanx) on the treated area for up to 72 hours.

Avoid using active creams, exfoliants and self-tan on the treated area for at least one week following treatment.

How long will I see results?

Typically, after two to three weeks you will start to see the positive effects of your treatment. Each patient’s time frames will differ. Please note that a continued course of treatments is required for optimal results.

How long do the results last?

The results should be expected to be permanent as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained. As we are actively destroying the fat cells, once they’re gone, they’re definitely gone.
