Deoxycholic Acid Injection

Deoxycholic Acid Injections: The Key To Dissolving Stubborn Fat

When ASPS released their 2017 statistics, it was no surprise that non-invasive body contouring treatments took center stage. Between 2016 and 2017, fat freezing technologies rose by 7% year-over-year. Non-surgical cellulite treatments were up by 19% and laser-induced skin tightening procedures saw a growth of 9%. What these numbers point to is an obvious trend. Patients are looking for new, non-surgical ways to address and dissolve fat and banish bothersome weight and practices need to adapt to meet this need with injectables like deoxycholic acid.

Deoxycholic acid: for difficult-to-reach body areas

While large-scale body contouring devices are a great tool for addressing pockets of fat, injectables fill an important gap in treatment. Those difficult to reach areas in body zones such as the double chin, love handles, ‘banana roll’ under the buttocks, back/bra fat, ankles (or “kankles”) and crevices around the underarms are all underserved areas that frustrate countless patients. That’s where deoxycholic acid has met an essential, aesthetic need. A common ‘bile acid’ that permanently destroys fat cells, deoxycholic acid injections offer precise fat-fighting action for lasting results.

Accessible, custom dosing: making deoxycholic acid work for your patients

No patient is the same, and no patient treatment area is the same. Making deoxycholic acid injectables available to patients as part of a fat-targeting treatment plan also means offering custom dosing that meets their unique needs, and at cost-sensitive price points that enable them to receive treatment for large body areas, small body areas, and everything in-between.

Combination treatments for expedited results

When combined with other powerful lipotropic agents such as phosphatidylcholine, fat cells are targeted with more intensity with quicker results and apoptosis that lasts for weeks.

A deoxycholic acid formula that doesn’t burn

While most other formulas may burn at the injection site, or require pre-numbing for patient comfort, our compound formula does not burn or irritate patients.
