There’s one answer – Aqualyx fat dissolving injections.
Aqualyx is an amazing treatment for those with a BMI of under 30, looking to remove stubborn pockets of fat. Aqualyx can be used to treat small, exercise-resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen and thighs. It is beneficial for body contouring and skin tightening, but it is not the recommended treatment for weight loss.
Have you ever wondered about how to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat?
The most general google search will lead you to liposuction. However this is quite an invasive procedure. We also find not all pockets of fat are liposuction worthy – and it is only Aqualyx that is actually able to sort them out, once and for all.
What is in Aqualyx?
In the most simplistic way, Aqualyx’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid . It causes the dissolution of fat cells, and causes the body to naturally expel the released fatty acids
How do fat dissolving injections work?
In clinic, we regularly treat those stubborn pockets of fat, that no amount of healthy eating or exercise will remove. It is really common to treat anything from the chin, arms, stomach, flanks – and even bra/back fat! You name it, if there enough to ‘pinch’ then we can blast that fat away with Aqualyx. You can see a pinch test here.
The magic of how it works is that Aqualyx is injected directly into the fat pockets using a very thin cannula or a regular short needle. A course of treatments is always recommended for best results.

Please remember significant swelling is normal after a fat dissolving treatment. The area will feel heavy, tender, or sore for up to a week after the treatment. Some experience mild swelling and tenderness for up to 3 weeks. The swelling is a positive sign as it means you are having a good response to the treatment, as more fat cells are breaking down
Please avoid rubbing, icing, or overly touching the area for 24 hours after the procedure
Avoid extreme temperature changes like intense heat or extreme cold for 7 days
You may return to exercise when you feel ready, but most patients tend to wait at least 3-7 days as the area may be wobbly and uncomfortable after the procedure
Please have patience, as once the swelling subsides the fat reduction can be more visible. The results are generally seen after 6-8 weeks, and it will be worth the wait. After this time, you are welcome to book in for consecutive treatments
