Aqualyx® Fat Dissolving Injections

Lose unwanted chin fat within 45 minutes

Aqualyx is a non-surgical fat dissolving injection treatment. The procedure uses a solution of deoxycholic acid to safely and effectively eliminate small, stubborn pockets of fat. Aqualyx is an injectable solution which liquefies fat cells, destroying them permanently. The dead fat cells are then released and eliminated naturally by the lymphatic system.

Which areas can be treated with Aqualyx?

The most common areas that are treated are under the chin, for the double chin area, the stomach, front of the stomach, the sides, the saddle bags and around the hips. The knees can also be treated.

How many treatments are required?

It can take anywhere between one to four treatments. On the whole, we recommend two to four treatments but we normally review how you’re progressing and then make a decision at that stage of how many further treatments are required.

What is Aqualyx and what happens during treatment?

Aqualyx is a compound of a substance called deoxycholic acid and essentially it absorbs the fat and you pass it out through the kidneys naturally. During the treatment, it is a series of injections using a special needle called a cannula and it takes around 30 minutes to do the procedure but we’ll be essentially injecting the areas that need treating with the Aqualyx.

What is the aftercare?

It can be quite sore and uncomfortable for a few days. You will be provided with an aftercare sheet with tips to reduce swelling and discomfort.

How quickly will I see results?

You should see the results after about four to six weeks. Normally there is swelling after the treatment and once that has settled down you will start to see results.

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment can be uncomfortable, however, we use lidocaine anaesthetic mixed in with the Aqualyx to make it more comfortable.
