While deoxycholic acid was originally introduced as a way to address unwanted fat around the chin area and create a more sculpted jawline, its applications have expanded into other parts of the body over the years. It helps deal with stubborn problem areas by putting the deoxycholic acid into the fat cells, keeping those cells from being able to store fat and leading to a tighter, more sculpted appearance. Here are just a few of the common trouble spots deoxycholic acid may be able to help with.
The stomach is a problem area for many people, and even with diet and exercise, belly fat doesn’t always budge. Body sculpting treatments with deoxycholic acid help contour the stomach and love handle areas and are a good choice for those who are already close to their ideal weight. This is because gaining more than 10 pounds after the procedure can affect results.
Deoxycholic acid can also help contour and sculpt your butt, specifically the area at the bottom close to the thighs which is commonly referred to as the banana roll. The treatment is injected underneath the butt on each leg for a uniform, symmetrical appearance.
Your Sides and Back
If you’re dealing with stubborn fat around your bra band, it can affect your confidence in tighter fitting clothing and make it difficult to get a sleek silhouette. Deoxycholic acid injections in this area work best for women who are dealing with bulges around the bra line instead of actual flaps of skin, which may be harder to treat with this method.
Your Knees and Arms
While these areas may not be the first things that come to mind when you think about shaving off a few extra inches, they can be particularly stubborn and resistant to exercise. If you’re dealing with stubborn fat deposits around the armpit area or feel like you have extra pudge around your knees, treatments with deoxycholic acid can give you a tighter, trimmer appearance.
If you’ve put in the work of sticking to a healthy eating plan and exercising regularly but still aren’t happy with your results, deoxycholic acid injection treatments can help you spot reduce areas that are still carrying a little extra pudge.
