Fat Dissolving Injections | AQUALYX®

 

AQUALYX® is an enzyme that works by breaking down fat. It can be used to treat localised pockets of fat under the surface of the skin, and is suitable for areas such as under the chin, the armpits (bra fat), back, stomach, hips and knees. AQUALYX® is not a weight loss solution but works by helping to remove stubborn areas of fat that cannot be targeted by diet and exercise.

One treatment of AQUALYX® typically involves only 1 or 2 injection sites, and a local anaesthetic solution of lidocaine is used to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Typically we advise 2 – 8 treatments, depending on the area. Larger areas such as the stomach will need more AQUALYX® treatments than a smaller area such as the chin. The treatment is a permanent solution to removing the fat, however the client must maintain a constant weight (e.g. not gaining weight) by ensuring a healthy lifestyle otherwise the fat may reappear.

Side effects may appear for a few days post treatment, such as:

·         Redness

·         Swelling

·         Tenderness

·         Bruising

We advise this may take up to 2 weeks to fully settle. Most clients are suitable for AQUALYX®, however we may advise a consultation prior to the treatment to check your suitability. This treatment is not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and is only available for over 18s.
