An alternative to liposuction for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat from the face & body
Frequently Asked Questions
An alternative to liposuction is Aqualyx Lipotherapy: a fat removal therapy which reduces stubborn fat deposits in notoriously tricky areas such as the stomach, outer and inner thighs, and the chin area.
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are a specially-formulated compound solution which is injected into the problem area. It works by attaching to fatty deposits, breaking them down over time. The fat is then naturally dissolved and flushed out by the body. Results are effective, quick, and minimally invasive.
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving treatments are perfect for anyone that has small pockets of stubborn fat in areas such as double chin, stomach, thighs, arms/bingo wings, saddle bags etc.
You will be required to have a full consultation with Dr Kirsty Killen before any fat dissolving treatment, but generally this treatment is not suitable for those classed as clinically overweight and those aged under 18 or over 60.
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can be used to treat almost all small deposits of fat, but the most popular treatment areas include the chin, thighs, arms, and stomach.
The treatment price depends on the size of the area to be treated. On average the cost will be between £250-£400 per session and multiple sessions may be required.
The cost of your treatment will be detailed at your consultation.
During the treatment a topical anaesthetic is used to minimise discomfort. There may be a slight stinging feeling as the Aqualyx is injected, but this only lasts a few seconds.
After your treatment a small amount of swelling or bruising at the injection points is possible. You may also experience some tenderness for 24-72 hours.
Normal side effects include small amounts of swelling, bruising, redness and soreness. Most of these will subside after a couple of days and be gone within ten. If you are still experiencing problems after ten days you should contact us for advice.
If you keep a healthy lifestyle, the fat treated by Aqualyx is very unlikely to return. When fat cells have been treated by Aqualyx, those specific fat cells that have been destroyed will not return. If you gained additional weight after having the treatment then naturally other fat cells that have not been destroyed can still fill up.
