Deoxycholic acid is a manmade form “bile acids” that the liver makes, which help with fat absorption. Deoxycholic acid works by destroying fat cells in the treated areas. Deoxycholic acid is used to help decrease the appearance of fat that hangs below the chin, sometimes called a double-chin.

The Treatment

Injection lipolysis treatments are typically done in the office in a 45 minute appointment. A topical numbing cream is applied and ice is used to aid with discomfort of injections. A fine needle is used for the injection to improve discomfort associated with the procedure. The length of your consultation will depend on the amount of questions you may have. You are usually able to have your Fat Dissolving treatment on the same day as your consultation.

What to avoid post treatment?

During the period of post-treatment swelling, the area can look fuller than it did before treatment. As the fat cells are disrupted and the inflammation subsides, most patients see results by 6 to 8 weeks after a treatment. The swelling can appear to be more severe than the double chin fat that was present. It is not abnormal for the swelling to temporarily cause a burning and numb sensation. Patient’s have also reported feeling lumps during the healing period that resolve as the swelling subsides. These symptoms should resolve themselves as the swelling subsides. Cold compresses can be effective for pain relief.

Severe swelling after injection lipolysis cannot be predicted. We recommend that you do not receive this treatment immediately before any large life event.

It is possible to not obtain a complete result after the first treatment.  The human face and neck are normally asymmetrical with respect to structural anatomy and function.  There can be a variation from one side to the other in terms of the response to the injections.  Additional injections may be needed to reach the desired level of result can be performed until the goal is achieved.  We would be more than happy to see you again in 6-8 weeks for an additional treatment.

Patients with loose skin or poor tone may not be suitable candidates for the procedure. Once the fat cells are disrupted and destroyed it may be possible that the skin does not retract fully and you are left with an undesired excess skin requiring surgical correction. Your surgeon will be able to assess whether or not you are a good candidate for injection lipolysis.

A good candidate for injection lipolysis is a patient who is relatively healthy and has realistic expectations for post-procedure outcomes.

  • How long do lip fillers last?
    Lip filler results will vary from person to person, but typically lip fillers last between 6-24 months and are noticeable immediately after the lip filler treatment. It is important to note that there will be a gradual loss of volume over time. How long lip fillers generally last will depend on how quickly your individual metabolism breaks down the filler in the lips.
  • How much do lip fillers cost?
    How much do lip fillers cost? The cost of lip filler injections can vary between individuals and the area being treated, as well as the desired result you are trying to achieve with filler. Lip filler treatments can start from $710, but at Mimi Beauty Clinics, we offer a number of payment options and plans.

  • Are there any side effects with Stylage or Restylane?
    Stylage and Restylane injectable gel is generally well tolerated. Most side effects are mild to moderate in nature and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. Hyaluronic acid fillers are generally biocompatible, which means allergy skin testing is not required prior to treatment.
  • Can dermal fillers help with deep-pitted acne scars?
    Restylane is a smooth gel filler that fillers in pitted or depressed acne scars. Restylane is so powerful that its results last up to a year—and after only a single treatment. Because Restylane’s dermal gel is smooth rather than granular, a single injection of it makes skin looks smooth, natural, and youthful. This is because the unique formulation of Restylane’s gel promotes hydration of the skin, as well as restores volume to the skin and its underlying structures.
  • Does my acne have to be cleared up before dermal fillers can help me?
    Yes. This is because injecting dermal fillers into active acne lesions may cause them to become infected or severely inflamed.
