Fat Dissolving (Aqualyx®)

Aqualyx injections are a non-surgical procedure to reduce and remove stubborn pockets of fat from the body. As with all fat treatments it is best used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise. Aqualyx destroys the fat cells and is considered a long-term solution as the fat will not return provided you maintain a stable weight.

from £75 per area

Aqualyx® can be used on the following areas:

  • Stomach

  • Love handles

  • Arms

  • Chin

  • Sides and waist

  • Inner and outer thighs

  • Underarms and armpits

 

The Process

The solution is injected into the fat using a needle. Usually 1 injection spare per 2cm region with the amount of product used differing according to the area of fat being treated. Lidocaine is added to the solution before injecting to reduce discomfort; the treatment is relatively painless with a warm sensation, itching, slight burning and reddening appearance for 1-3 days within the treated area. The number of treatments required can vary dependent on the area/amount being treated with as little as 2 treatments required up to 8; repeat treatments occur every 3-5 weeks.

 

Side Effects

You can expect swelling in the area after Aqualyx treatment and sometimes significant swelling, for up to 14 days. You may also experience tenderness and bruising, warmth and tingling, small areas of hardness, and itching around the treatment.
