What Areas Does Deoxycholic Acid Treat?
Deoxycholic acid is used for problem areas such as double chin, under arms, back fat, banana roll, abdomen, flanks etc. As time passes on, many patients find they have increased levels of fatty tissue creating pockets of fat. Some patients find their problem areas are difficult to improve with diet and exercise and look for other options to reduce their fat.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
First, Dr. Russon will examine your problem area to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Next, the area to be injected is marked on your skin. Small amounts are then injected in a grid like fashion into the fatty tissue. Patients will need 1-3 treatment sessions for optimal correction. Treatments with injectable deoxycholic acid are spaced every 4-6 weeks. The fatty tissue that is broken down by this procedure is naturally removed from the body over the next few weeks.
