Fat Dissolvers

Aqualyx is an injectable fat loss treatment. It is a gel-based solution, derived from cholanic acid, which is produced by our bile duct to help up break down fats. It is a non-surgical way of body-shaping. This gel-based solution is injected into areas of unwanted fat. The solution works by disrupting the surface of the fat cells, causing them to weaken and become permeable. An ultrasound treatment is then used to push the fats out of the cells. The fat is then absorbed by the body and excreted. It is a permanent result assuming the person having the treatment doesn’t gain weight after the treatment.


Which areas can be treated?

Aqualyx is suitable for treating: double chin, jowls, upper arms, armpits, waist, hips, knees, chest, inner tights, buttocks as well as folds on the back.

How many treatments are needed?

Some people may see an improvement after 1-2 session but up to 8 may be required depending on the amount of fat in the area. Chins, where there is less fat for example, may require one treatment while hips or thighs may require repeated treatments.

Treatments will usually be spaced 4 weeks apart.

Is there any downtime?

There may be redness, bruising and swelling that could last up to 48-72 hours. You can take over-the-counter painkillers but are advised not to take anti-inflammatory painkillers such as ibuprofen as they will work against the treatment.

Is it worth it?

Aqualyx can be effective at removing small pockets of stubborn fat. It is not an alternative for liposuction for large areas of fat removal and is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. The results will last if a stable weight is maintained. One thing to consider, if you have very lax skin, is that removeng fat may leave you with excess skin which may require skin tightening afterwards.
