Deso vs Aqualyx Fat Dissolvers

By July 15, 2022No Comments

If you’re considering non-surgical fat loss injections, you may be wondering whether Aqualyx or Deso is the right choice for you. Both of these injectables work by targeting and removing fat cells in specific areas of the face and body. But there are some key differences between them. 


How do they work? 

Aqualyx is made from a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down membranes of fat cells so that they can be flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system – resulting in a slimmer, firmer appearance.

On the other hand, the primary agent in Deso fat dissolvers is a compound called sodium deoxycholate – a bile acid which naturally breaks down dietary fats in the intestine to be absorbed by the body. 


What areas can be treated? 

Aqualyx is most effective at treating smaller areas of localised fat, including the thighs, stomach, arms, and chin. Aqualyx can also be used to treat cellulite and great as a non-invasion option to liposuction. 

Deso offers treatment for both the face and the body, from double chins, love handles, inner arms and thighs, to stomach fat, buttocks, knees and more. 

It must be noted that both are not designed as weight loss products, but rather shift stubborn fatty deposits that cannot be broken down by diet and exercises alone. 


Are there any side effects? 

The injections are relatively quick and easy to administer with each session lasting 30 minutes, and there is usually no downtime required afterwards. 

There are some potential side effects associated with both fat dissolving injections, such as bruising, swelling, and pain at the injection site. However, these are typically mild and temporary. 


How long do results last?

Most patients start to see results from their treatment after 2 to 3 weeks. However, results for Deso and Aqualyx fat dissolvers will vary from person to person depending on a number of factors, such as age, lifestyle, and diet. To maintain optimal fat reduction, it’s important to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.


So, which fat dissolver is right for you? 

The answer depends on your individual needs and goals. If you’re looking to target small areas of fat, Aqualyx may be the best option. But, for those struggling to lose weight in larger areas of your body, Deso may be a better choice. Consult with a certified practitioner to recommend the best course of treatment.
