Stubborn fat treatment in Vancouver, BC:
A combination of factors such as lifestyle, posture, hormones, genetics and age can contribute to the formation of stubborn fatty areas. We can use a fat dissolving substance that is naturally produced by our body to get rid of unwanted fat depositions. This substance is called Deoxycholic acid. It is produced by our liver and it breaks down dietary fat and helps with fat absorption. In aesthetic medicine we use deoxycholic acid to treat submental fullness, eliminating the appearance of a double chin and other body parts where we have stubborn tat depositions.
Areas of treatment :
- Double chin
- Inner thigh
- Bra bulge fat
How it works
When injected, deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells, resulting in noticeable reduction in fulness under the chin.Once destroyed , fat cells can no longer store fat so we expect permanent result.
After using topical numbing cream we use a fine needle for injections. The treatment consists of 3 to 4 sessions. We will assess each client individually for the number of treatments required.
- Procedure: can take 15- 30 min.
- You may experience mild redness, mild burning, temporary bruising or swelling that may last up to 7 days.
- Post treatment care will be discussed during consultation.
