Aqualyx in London

Aqualyx provides an advanced, non-surgical solution to removing unwanted fat in areas that are often resistant to diet and exercise, no matter how rigorous the efforts are.

The minimally invasive treatment will optimise and complement your healthy lifestyle so that you can benefit from fat reduction, faster! Aqualyx comes in an injection form and can dissolve stubborn areas of fat. Areas such as: under the chin, on the thighs, knees, back (bra rolls) and chest (gynecomastia).

Fat Dissolving Injections

How does the treatment work?

Subcutaneous fat can be extremely hard to shift. This type of fat often collects around the hips, thighs and buttocks for women, and on the stomach for men. Whilst some people will maintain a healthy lifestyle and endure vigorous exercise regimes, sometimes this isn’t enough to eliminate the fat in these areas.

The aqueous solution works to dissolve fat cells which are liquefied and transported out of the body through the lymphatic system.

How many treatments are required?

For optimal results, a patient will require 3-8 sessions. The number of areas treated, and the size of the area will determine how many sessions are needed. Treatments are usually spaced six weeks apart.

Is there any downtime?

Patients may experience some degree of redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site, which can be particularly prominent when injected into the chin area. However, this varies from patient to patient. It’s advised that you do not take inflammation painkillers such as Ibuprofen as this can worsen bruising. Your aesthetic nurse will advise the appropriate aftercare actions, and it is important to follow their steps to minimise downtime. The swelling usually subsides after around three to five days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is an ideal candidate?

Candidates will see the best results if they have an active and healthy lifestyle that they will maintain following the treatment. Aqualyx will work to shift resistant localised fat that has been hard to eliminate through diet and exercise alone.

Aqualyx is not a weight loss treatment and is not suitable for those that are overweight. It will work best for those that are already in relatively good shape and lead a healthy lifestyle. It’s an ideal treatment for those who are looking for an alternative to laser treatments like Liposonix.

The treatment can treat a wide range of aesthetic concerns which include: double chin (unwanted fat under chin), bra rolls (rolls of fat on back), moobs (gynecomastia/unwanted fat in breast area for men), fat pouches (men may develop fat pouch under navel), muffin top (unwanted fat on hips), thigh touching (unwanted fat on inner thighs) and more.

The treatment is unsuitable for those that are overweight, are pregnant, have lipodystrophy, diabetes, kidney disease or are over the age of 60.

What does the treatment involve?

Every treatment at 111 Harley St. begins with a consultation. During this time, we will discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations, and existing lifestyle. We’ll also examine your medical history to determine whether your expectations are realistic and whether this treatment will be suitable for you.

If you are suitable for treatment, we’ll assess which areas require treatment. Once you come in for treatment, the Aqualyx will be administered via a syringe. A topical numbing cream may be applied to minimise discomfort. The solution is injected into the pre-discussed treatment areas.

When can results be seen and are they permanent?

Results may be seen after just one treatment after around four to five weeks and will improve with a course of treatments. Results are variable and depend on a variety of factors such as: how much pre-existing fat there is, age, lifestyle, the stability of membranes, and whether the patient gains weight after treatment. It’s encouraged to maintain a stable weight following your sessions to benefit from the results.

Patients will experience results that are unique to them and vary from patient to patient. The permanency of the treatment is also variable depending on the patient’s aftercare efforts and limitations of the procedure.

How long does the treatment take?

The treatment takes approximately 1 hour but depends on the size and amount of areas receiving treatment.

Side effects and risks?

Each patient’s tolerance to the treatment will vary, however general reported side effects of the procedure include swelling, bruising, skin irritation, tenderness, firmness and redness.
