How does Deoxycholic Acid Injections work?
Deoxycholic Acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
For this fat dissolving procedure, deoxycholic acid is injection into areas where the fat is gathered. This prescribed medication once injected will target the fat cell wall by dissolving it, which will not allow the fat cell to survive. This is a permanent reduction in the fat cells in that area. To successfully remove all fat, usually 2-5 sessions are needed.
