What is it?

If you suffer from pockets of fat that exercise and diet can’t shift, you may think that surgery may be your only option for a slimmer appearance. Fortunately, you would be wrong. Body Contouring with Aqualyx® is an advanced medical innovation that restores and tones your body’s shape without the cost and rigours of surgery.

By dissolving stubborn, localised fat and tightening your skin from the inside, unwanted bulges are smoothed out and eradicated. You’re left with natural, long-lasting results, and a body that you can feel confident in.

Areas commonly treated with Aqualyx® include

  • the “saddle bags” (outer thighs)
  • thighs
  • underarms
  • stomach and lower abdomen
  • chin and jowls
  • knees
  • pseudo-gynaecomastia (the male condition more commonly known as “man-boobs”)

How does it work?

Once administered directly to the problem areas, Aqualyx® liquefies the targeted fat cells. The lipids (in this case, the liquefied fat) are then removed naturally — and permanently — by your body’s lymphatic system. Our doctors use a specialised elastic needle, which makes the procedure more comfortable. This also means that even small areas can be tackled with ease, such as double chin and jowls.

For added effectiveness, lipolysis procedures like this one can be used in conjunction with Ultrasonic Cavitation Therapy (also offered in our clinic). This combination helps to support and disperse the Aqualyx® liquid solution in the treated area faster, speeding up the process. Our specialist doctor will discuss your needs, concerns and expectations during your consultation.

Although the fat is destroyed permanently, it is important that you maintain a stable weight and continue exercising in order to stop any new fat building up again.

How long does the treatment take to work?

The number of sessions needed depends the amount, layers, and area of the excessive adipose tissue (fat). Most clients typically require between three and eight sessions to achieve an optimal outcome. However, a reduction in fat deposits can be usually seen after even the first treatment. The speed at which results are seen will also vary from person to person. It take from anything between three to six weeks.

What is the downtime?

Aqualyx® anti-fat injections is non-surgical treatment. This means that there is minimal downtime and none of the risks associated with general anaesthetics. After each treatment patients can expect some swelling, redness, skin irritation and tenderness in the treated area. This should reside after three to six days. You should also expect bruising in the treated area, which will take between one and two weeks to go – this varies between individuals. 

Does it hurt?

Pain is fairly minimal. An anaesthetic is normally mixed into the solution prior to the injection for greater comfort. 

How many treatments are needed?

You will generally need to repeat the treatment between every three to four weeks, for two to eight times depending on the number and volume of pockets of fat tissue you wish to eliminate. However, the great advantage of Aqualyx® is its permanence. Destroying localised body fat cells means that this is a long-lasting solution for any localised fat issues you may have. We always stress, of course, the importance of retaining a stable weight and exercising as normal afterwards.

Any cons?

Contra-indications for this treatment (i.e. factors that may prevent you from using Aqualyx®) are pregnancy and lactation, lipodystrophy, and various pathological conditions, such as auto-immune diseases. During your consultation, our doctor will discuss your options and advise you about your suitability. You will also be able to discuss an estimation of the amount of product vials recommended for your individual case, and the estimated number of repeat treatments.

We also offer interest free finance on treatments above £280 and on selected packages.

It is important to remember that swelling in and around the area of your injections is normal and to be expected. Please also be aware that delayed bruising can happen, too.

In order to maximise the treatment effect and to minimise the risk of side-effects, abide by the following:

  • Avoid sun beds for the next few days after treatment
  • Do not do any strenuous exercise or training on the day of the treatment
  • If you have to take anything for pain you can take Paracetamol
  • Do not apply any kind of cosmetics onto the treated area within the first twelve hours following your treatment
  • It will take up to four weeks for you to start noticing results.

Taking care of yourself after the procedure is crucial. By following the above you will enjoy your results for longer.

Please note that results vary from person to person due to lifestyle, external and internal factors, and genetic predispositions.
