Aqualyx is a safe, effective fat dissolving injection treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area.

Aqualyx can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles.

It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.

If you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle and are close to your ideal body weight, but have isolated stubborn areas of fat then Aqualyx might be suitable.

Aqualyx is not suitable if you:

Have diabetes.
Have liver or kidney disease.
Have active skin problem in the area to be treated.
Are taking blood thinning medicine e.g warfarin.

What are the potential downsides of Aqualyx?

Aqualyx isn’t without its side effects. A doctor should discuss these with you before undergoing the procedure. Examples include:

  • bruising

  • redness

  • skin irritation

  • swelling
