Aqualyx® is a fat dissolving injection treatment that targets stubborn fat, breaks down the membranes of fat cells beneath the skin which are typically resistant to exercise and a good diet.
Aqualyx is a solution of deoxycholic acid which emulsifies fats. Once the fat cells become unstable, they break down and the body’s immune system then eliminates the fatty acids via the lymphatic system and liver. Unlike liposuction, the treatment has some skin tightening affects to the area, so you are less likely to end up with loose skin feeling which results in a contoured and tone appearance.
The human body has fatty deposits in areas like the abdomen and thighs to supply energy in times of need.

The product begins to work straight away once it is injected.
