AQUALYX® Body Fat Dissolving Injection in Notting Hill, Harley Street, Mayfair and Marylebone

Aqualyx treatment is a fat dissolving injection that works by liquidating fat cells and destroying them permanently. The broken-down cells are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system. This treatment is performed by one of our Aqualyx® expert doctors.

Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections are an excellent treatment for those looking to treat areas on the body with stubborn, localised fat. Please note that Aqualyx® fat dissolving injection is a body contouring treatment, not a weight loss solution. Aqualyx® treatments are only applicable for small, localised areas, and patients should already be within 1 stone of their ideal weight. For larger areas such as rolls on the stomach, we recommend fat freezing and for an overall reduction of an entire area we recommend inch loss.

Aqualyx® injections can be administered anywhere on the body, but common treatment areas include:
  • Double chin
  • Pre jowl sulcus
  • Upper arms
  • Armpits
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Saddlebags
  • Knees
  • Fat depots on buttocks, chest and inner thighs
  • Condition: buffalo-humps.

Frequently Asked Questions

AQUALYX is a solution of deoxycholic acid, a compound which has been used in various fields of human medicine since its discovery. Present also in the human body, deoxycholic acid is used in the emulsification of fats for the absorption in the intestine.

Some products, such as Lipodissolve, contain phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholic acid; however, studies have demonstrated that phosphatidylcholine injections for fat loss are ineffective and it is the deoxycholic acid part which gives the result.

No, AQUALYX is classified as a medical device.
It causes cell lysis. Interestingly, it’s non-selective, meaning it lyses all cells. However, it has a greater affinity for fatty tissue than protein tissue, so fat tissue is more susceptible to break down. It prompts a mild inflammation in the skin afterwards, which helps clear the cellular debris.
When injected into fatty tissue, it disrupts the membrane of fat cells, leading to cell breakdown. There’s also an inflammatory response and some tissue contraction.
Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid, and is used in the body for emulsification of fats before absorption into the intestine. It is also used as an emulsifier in the food industry.
If you’re prone to bruising, you may wish to use arnica or bromelain. Swelling is going to occur, so please be prepared for this.
