What is aqualyx?

A fat dissolving treatment aimed to reduces stubborn pockets of fat.

Aqualyx® is a non-surgical solution to minimise and remove stubborn, localised pockets of fat. It is ideal for those who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet but have pockets of fat that won’t shift, even with focused exercise.

Aqualyx is a solution of deoxycholic acid which is also in the human body. Deoxycholic acid is used in the emulsification of fats for the absorption in the intestine.

The treatment consists of a multiple of small injections of the solution into the desired area. 

How many treatments will I need?

Results start to show after 1 treatment however depending on the area being treated you may need 3-4 treatments for maximum results.

You should expect to see results after 3-4 weeks of your initial treatment. Therefore we recommend leaving 6 weeks in between each treatment you have on the same area for Aqualyx.

The treatment has permanent results, however it doesn't prevent new fat cells from forming. This is why we recommend you stick to a healthy balanced diet if deciding to have Aqualyx fat dissolving.  

Does the treatment hurt?

The solution of Aqualyx is mixed with a local anaesthesia to numb the area as it is injected. Everyone has a different pain threshold, therefore we say that this treatment could be uncomfortable as the solution is injected in, but we try to keep pain to a minimum as with all other injectable services.  

There may be some discomfort following an Aqualyx treatment. We advise all clients that they may experience tingling, a slight burning sensation, bruising and swelling of the area that has been treated and should expect these symptoms to last up to 7 days. 

Any other aftercare advice?

Following on from your Aqualyx treatment you should avoid any strenuous exercise for 7 days. Expect to be swollen and slightly bruised with redness for up to 7 days. 
You should avoid wearing make-up or applying tan to any area that has been treated for 48 hours afterwards.
