Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections
What is Aqualyx?
Aqualyx is solution of deoxycholic acid made from a number of different plant based compounds that have been refined in a lab environment. It is also present in the human body.
It works by dissolving the membranes of fat cells in the treated area. The fat cells become stable and break open. The fatty acids contained within the cell are then eliminated by the macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver.
Aqualyx was developed by Professor Pasquale Motolese, Vice President of the Italian Society of Aesthetic Surgery and Medicine. Since 2009, it has been used in over 2 million treatments in over 49 countries. It has a strong safety record and has been given CE approval for use in the UK.

This treatment can be performed on numerous areas of the body such as:
Chin, Jowls, Abdomen, Hips, Saddlebags, Bra Fat, Armpit Fat, Outer and Inner Thighs, Man Boobs, Knees, Cankles, Defining a Six Pack
Aqualyx is a safe, effective fat dissolving injection treatments that reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long lasting results and is ideal to treat small, exercise resistent, stubborn fat pockets.
How soon to see results?
The number of Aqualyx treatments required varies depending on the size of the fatty deposit. Typically, 1-3 treatments for small areas; such as the jowls and under the chin, and 2-8 treatments for larger areas such as the tummy or thighs. Treatments are spaced at 6-8 week intervals
What is involved in treatment recovery?
Immediately after treatment you may appear red, swollen with some bruising on the area. Aqualyx works by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling for 3-5 days. Therefore, if you intend to have a facial treatment, ie. a double chin where the swelling may be obvious, you may wish to organise time away from work or social engagements.
