Deoxycholic acid is naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Deoxycholic acid works by breaking down the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from the body over time. The treatment typically requires multiple sessions, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
These injections are considered a non-surgical alternative to more invasive treatments, such as liposuction.
Lipotropic injections are a type of injection that contain a combination of compounds that are believed to help the body burn fat more efficiently. These compounds typically include: methionine, inositol, choline and various B vitamins.
Methionine is an essential amino acid that plays a role in the metabolism of fats and proteins.
Inositol is a B vitamin-like compound that is important for proper cell signaling and fat metabolism.
Choline is a nutrient that is essential for the health of the liver, and also plays a role in the metabolism of fats.
The B vitamins in the injection, such as B12 are important for energy production and can help to support healthy metabolism.
