Fat dissolving injections


"Great for dissolving double chins and improving the definition of the lower face" Dr. Ophelia Veraitch, Consultant Dermatologist.


  • Injections that dissolve fat under the chin, stomach, buttocks, bra rolls, inner and outer thighs.



Many men and women have issues with fat in stubborn areas that just won’t shift. Even after losing weight and exercising frequently, they find that the excess fat simply won’t budge.

Some people find that undergoing liposuction is too extreme an option to address this issue. This is where Aqualyx fat dissolving treatment comes into play. The area being treated is injected with Aqualyx. Aqualyx binds to fatty tissue, breaking it down. The body simply flushes out the broken-down fat after treatment.

Aqualyx fat dissolving injections enable fat on the face and body to be permanently removed, without the need for surgery.


What is Aqualyx?

Aqualyx is a biodegradable solution that permanently dissolves fat cells, after which the body then naturally gets rid of the dissolved fat.

How does Aqualyx work?

The Aqualyx solution is mixed with a local anaesthetic and injected into the fat through a needle or cannula, depending on the area. The treatment is relatively painless procedure though some redness, itching and swelling can occur post treatment and last for 1-3 days afterwards.

How many treatments are needed?

The number of treatments depends on the area being treated, and can vary from 1-2, up to 8 treatments in total. Treatments can be repeated every 4 weeks until desired results are achieved.

When do I see the final results of treatment?

Swelling usually occurs directly after the procedure and can persist for up to a week. Then the swelling will begin to reduce and you see the results. The end results are usually visible around 2 months post treatment.
