Fat Dissolving Injections
Melt away your excess fat
Melt away your excess fat
AQUALYX Fat dissolving injections are incredible plant based compounds that work to break down the membranes of the fat cells beneath the skin that are typically resistant to exercise. Once the membranes are disturbed, the fat cells become unstable, begin to break down and are flushed out through the body via the lymphatic system. This treatment can be permanent as part of a healthy lifestyle. Commonly used to treat submental fat (double chin) or fat around the jawline and jowls, fat dissolving injections can give dramatic results to help re-contour the face.
AQUALYX Fat dissolving injections can also be used as a body contouring treatment for stubborn areas of fat around the knees, abdomen and flanks as well as thighs, buttocks, bra fat and arms.

Does it hurt?
Some mild discomfort may occur during treatment application due to the nature of this being an injectable treatment. Although discomfort is generally minimal, we can use a numbing cream to help with pain management should this be required.
Are there any side effects?
Fat dissolving injections work by causing an inflammatory reaction, and therefore you may experience some swelling for up to 5 days post treatment. This is usually mild, and can be controlled using cool pads. Due to how the treatment works, you should not manage any side effects with anti inflammatory medicines as this will be counter intuitive to the treatment. You may notice some temporary reddening of the skin, or itching, but this is normal and will gradually reduce over a few days
What result can I expect?
You can expect it to take approx 2-3 weeks before you start to see a reduction in fatty deposits around the chin and jawline, giving a slimmer and less wobbly appearance to the face, helping to eliminate double chins and jowls. For larger areas, you will begin to notice the effects after 2-3 weeks, but should allow up to 8 weeks for the final result to be apparent. Typically 1-3 treatments will be required to achieve your desired result, but this will be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation along with your expectations. This treatment has a high patient satisfaction rate. We will only treat patients who are within 1 stone of their ideal body weight and around 3cm of pinchable fat, as this treatment is not intended as a weight loss solution.
Is it safe?
This treatment should only be administered by a medical professional. Fat dissolving injections carry the CE mark, and have a strong safety record.
