Fat Dissolving

Aqualyx is an injectable product which is used to help dissolve fat deposits. It is good for targeting stubborn fat deposits easily without having to resort to surgery.

Stubborn areas of fat can remain despite exercise and diet regimes, Aqualyx injections into these areas can help.

Aqualyx injections can be used anywhere on the body including:

  • Chin
  • Pre jowl sulcus
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Knees

Treatments may require repeating depending on the volume of fat. Treating a double chin may require 1 – 2 treatments however treating hips or thighs may need 5 – 6 treatments to achieve the desired result.

Aqualyx contains desoxycholan-acid which is a chemical naturally produced in our bodies (by the gall bladder),  desoxycholan-acid normally helps us digest fat in our diet.

When injected into the fat under the skin Aqualyx  binds to fat cells and breaks them down, the body then utilises this as energy or excretes it.
