What is Aqualyx and how does it work?

Aqualyx is a non-surgical, injectable solution for fat reduction and body contouring. It’s a bio-compatible, water-based gel formulated to dissolve localised fat cells. This treatment is ideal for areas where fat accumulates and is resistant to diet and exercise, such as the chin, abdomen, thighs, love handles, etc.

The key ingredient in Aqualyx is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring bile acid that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the targeted area, Aqualyx breaks down the fat cell membrane, causing the fat to be released and metabolised by the body. Over time, the treated fat cells are naturally eliminated through the lymphatic system.

A versatile fat-dissolving injection

Aqualyx is a versatile fat-dissolving injection that can be used to target localised fat deposits in various areas of the body. Common areas that are typically treated with Aqualyx include:

  • Chin (Submental Area): Reduce excess fat under the chin, helping contour and define the jawline.
  • Abdomen: Stubborn pockets of fat in the abdominal region, often resistant to diet and exercise.
  • Thighs: Both the inner and outer thighs can be treated to achieve a more streamlined leg contour.
  • Flanks (Love Handles): Effectively targets and reduces fat on the sides of the torso.
  • Hips: Aqualyx injections are used to create a smoother and more contoured hip area.
  • Knees: Reduce excess fat around the knees, helping to enhance the appearance of the lower legs.
  • Upper Arms: The upper arms, particularly the area where “bat wings” may develop, can be treated to achieve a firmer arm contour.
  • Bra Fat (Upper Back): Fat pockets around the bra line on the upper back can be targeted to achieve a smoother contour.
  • Male Chest (Pseudogynecomastia): Excess fat in the chest area for males, helping to address a condition known as pseudogynecomastia.
  • Buttocks (Banana Roll): Fat accumulation under the buttocks, can be treated to achieve a more defined and contoured buttock area.

    Aqualyx is highly effective in reducing localised fat pockets in various areas such as the chin, abdomen, thighs, love handles, and more. The injections are administered directly into the targeted fat deposits.

  • Are there any side effects associated with Aqualyx?

    While Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections are generally considered safe and well-tolerated, like any medical procedure, they may have potential side effects. Some potential side effects and considerations include:

    • Redness, Swelling, and Bruising: Mild redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site are common and usually subside within a few days to a week.

    The duration of the effects of Aqualyx injections can vary from person to person and depends on various factors, including individual metabolism, lifestyle, and the area treated. Aqualyx is designed to permanently destroy fat cells, so the results can be long-lasting if a healthy lifestyle is maintained.

  • What happens to the fat after Aqualyx fat dissolve injections?

    After Aqualyx fat dissolving injections, the fat that has been targeted and dissolved undergoes a natural metabolic process within the body.

  • What is the average cost of Aqualyx, and how many sessions will I need?

    The cost of Aqualyx treatments can vary widely based on several factors, including your geographic location, the experience and expertise of the provider, the area being treated, and the number of sessions required. The average cost per session of Aqualyx injections can range from £300 to £600 or more.

    The number of sessions needed can also vary based on individual factors such as the amount of localised fat, the desired results, and how your body responds to the treatment. Typically, 2 to 4 treatment sessions about 4 to 6 weeks apart may be recommended to achieve the desired outcome.
