Fat Dissolving

What Is Aqualux?


Aqualyx is a fat-dissolving treatment that targets fat removal from certain targeted areas. Excess fat in stubborn areas can be an issue for many men and women, despite exercise and a good diet. These fatty areas sometimes just don’t want to change, but the likes of liposuction may seem too extreme a solution. That’s when Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can help target these stubborn areas.

It works by attaching to fatty deposits, breaking them down over time. The fat is then naturally dissolved and flushed out by the body. Results are effective, quick, and minimally invasive.

It works by using a solution, injected into the localised deposits of fatty tissue, which liquefies the fat cell and destroys it permanently. The lipids (contents of the fat cells) are then released and eliminated naturally through the bodies natural lymphatic system.

Results are very fast, but it’s recommended to have between two and five sessions to see a significant effect. Younger patients are more likely to see results after a longer period of time

You will be required to have a full consultation with a clinical therapist before any fat dissolving treatment, but generally, this treatment is not suitable for those classed as clinically overweight and those aged under 18 or over 60.

After a pre-treatment consultation your clinical therapist will mark out the area of treatment. Aqualyx® is mixed with Lidocaine (anaesthetic) before placement for greater comfort. A number of injections will occur to make sure the area if fully covered. The elastic needles allow small areas to be tackled effectively such as double chin or jowls. 

There are some temporary side effects, which include bruising, swelling, redness and irritation in the injection area. Sometimes it may feel a slightly tender to touch, numb or itchy but these side effects usually reside after 1-3 days. Apart from this the downtime is minimal to none at all. 

Not especially, because the fluid is mixed with local anaesthesia, so the area is numbed. Most people report afterwards that the area looks sore; however, the vast majority of people do not report any pain whatsoever.

Fat reduction is permanent, for the fat cells that are destroyed, they don’t come back. Of course, if more weight is gained, then the fatty appearance will return, but in proportion with the new shape gained. This is why we always advise a good diet and healthy lifestyle alongside Aqualux Treatment
