How does Aqualyx work?
Aqualyx is an injectable fat loss treatment derived from cholic acid. Cholic acid is a natural substance produced by the liver and it help to digest fat. When injected this solution kills fat cells. These dead fat cells are then removed by your body’s lymphatic system permanently.
How is treatment done?
Treatment is carried out in clinical rooms in a sterile manner. The doctor mixes the Aqualyx with Local Anaesthetic to reduce discomfort. The solution is then injected into the areas needing treated. You may require 2 or 3 sessions for full benefit. Treatments will usually be spaced 4 weeks apart. It is also common for patients to undergo cavitation or skin tightening treatments in-between Aqualyx sessions.
Is there any downtime?
You can anticipate redness, slight bruising and swelling that could last up to 48-72 hours. Over-the-counter painkillers can be taken but anti-inflammatory medications (e.g Ibuprofen) are best avoided.
Is Aqualyx safe?
Aqualyx is a proven safe and effective method for reducing stubborn pockets of fat. The Aqualyx manufacturer has reported no major side effects.
What is the cost?
Prices start from £249/area. The price is dependent on the amount of Aqualyx used. One area for one individual may require 4 vials of Aqualyx, but for another it could require 1 – That is why a free consultation with one of our Aqualyx doctors is mandatory.
