Fat Reduction with Aqualyx

Published on: June 9, 2016

Even with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise you can still have pockets of stubborn fat that just won’t shift, often caused by hormones or genetics. Previously the only solution would have been liposuction which only empties fat cells, meaning they can be refilled, and leaves painful scars. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we have the amazing Aqualyx treatment to melt away fat without the use of invasive treatment and without scarring. 

Aqualyx is an injectable solution of Sodium deoxycholate which liquifies fat so it can be flushed out by the liver and lymphatic system. It has been used since 2009 and can be used by both men and women in areas where fat is hard to shift such as saddlebags and the inner thighs. The procedure involves a series of injections to send the medication into the fat cells and immediately break them down. Following the injection, a gentle ultrasound is applied on the treated areas to help the Aqualyx solution to better penetrate and break down the fat cells, and this is repeated after 3 or 4 weeks. The area may feel slightly tender and swollen straight afterwards but this will soon fade away and the procedure does not cause any scarring.

Aqualyx delivers fantastic results for those stubborn pockets of fat that you cannot get rid of. Instead of trying to hide your body on the beach with sarongs and kaftans, you can show it off with pride.
