Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections

What are Fat Dissolving Injections?

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving injections are an effective solution for patients wanting to remove unwanted fat that resists through diet and exercise. Stubborn fat can sit on a number of areas of the body and be frustrating for patients. Aqualyx is an injectable compound made from the deoxycholate family of acids. The acids present in Aqualyx cause fat destruction in the body. The treatment can be used on a variety of areas from double chins to saddlebags and targets localised fatty deposits, breaking down fat cells. The fat cells are then completely dissolved and leave the body through your lymphatic system. 

Aqualyx Fat dissolving injections are far less invasive than surgical procedures.

Usually, patients require a course of treatments for best results. The number of treatments required depends on the treatment area and desired results. 

Dr Bhavjit Kaur will discuss your treatment goals during your consultation. We will devise a bespoke treatment plan for you, where you’ll also be able to ask any questions.
