Aqualyx fat dissolving injections

Aqualyx® is a non-surgical solution used to minimise and remove stubborn localised pockets of fat. It is ideal for those who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet but have fatty areas that won’t shift, even with focused exercise. 
This technique, known as Aqualysis™ or Aquaplasty™, involves injecting a solution into localised fat deposits. Aqualyx® consists of phosphatidylcholine – a natural substance which, when given in higher doses, can cause the destruction of fat cells.

Aqualyx® works by breaking down cell membranes to liquify the fat cell, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system. 

Aqualyx® can be used on the following areas:

Stomach | Love handles/waist | Arms | Double Chin | Inner and outer thighs | Upperarms | Back | Buttocks | Chest | Hips

Destroying fat cells is only a long-term solution provided you retain a stable weight, eat healthily and continue to exercise regularly. Aqualyx® leads to a permanent reduction of fatty tissue; once removed, fat cells will not reappear.

Important: Aqualyx® is a body contouring treatment not a weight loss solution. Treatments with Aqualyx® are only applicable for small, localized areas. Clients must be within one stone of their recommended body weight to have treatment and be able to pinch about 3cm of fat. 
Aqualyx® can be used on the following areas:

AQUALYX® TREATMENTS

Treatment consists of a set of injections, administered 3-4 weeks apart, whereby Aqualyx® is injected into the targeted area. A reduction in fat deposits can be seen after just one treatment, however two-three  sessions are recommended to achieve desired results
