Deoxycholic Acid Injection
This is a naturally occurring substance on our digestive tract that is involved in the breakdown of fat for digestion. The use of naturally occurring substances for treatment is considered safe as there’s minimal risk of a negative reaction. Deoxycholic acid is preferred for targeted fat removal. For example, it’s mostly used to eliminate double chin fat.
Red light Therapy/ Photonic Lipolysis
Photonic Lipolysis utilizes red light to target affected areas and trigger fat reduction. Unlike most fat removal treatments, red light therapy reduces the volume of targeted fat cells instead of eliminating or destroying them. This therapy opens up fat cells to remove some of their constituents, reducing their size.
This treatment technique utilizes specific sonic waves to breakdown fat cells in the targeted areas. It’s good to note that the surrounding tissue cells are not affected by this treatment.
Laser Treatment (SculpSure)
Laser treatment can also be used to eliminate unwanted fat deposits/pockets. This technique utilizes specific wavelengths to heat up, break down, and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin and other surrounding tissues.
Radiofrequency Lipolysis (Vanquish)
This procedure applies specific radiofrequency energy to destroy excess fat cells in the problematic areas. The destroyed fat cells are then metabolized and eliminated through the lymphatic system.
To know the suitable method to eliminate your excess fat, one should book a complimentary appointment to be examined by our cosmetologists.

Unlike liposuction which is invasive and has many side effects, our noninvasive fat removal techniques have minimal to null side effects. Some of the side effects that you may experience include mild swelling, redness, and numbing. These side effects subside after a few days.
The number of treatment sessions required varies depending on the area being treated and the treatment procedure chosen. On average;
- Deoxycholic injection requires two to four treatments, 30 days apart
- Ultrasound – one to three sessions, two weeks apart
- Red light therapy requires three or more sessions spaced accordingly
Each session takes an average of one hour.
Nonsurgical fat removal methods are noninvasive but they may present minor discomfort during treatment. This is why we apply local anesthesia to the target areas to keep our clients comfortable.
