Aqualyx Injection treatment 

Do you struggle with stubborn areas of fat, despite regular exercise and a healthy diet?

Sometimes, all the exercise and dieting in the world does not seem to remove fat in certain areas, like on the hips and waist. In addition, a lot of people may have fatty areas of their faces that they are not happy with, such as double chins and fat around the jaw.

While liposuction is one option, other less invasive treatments have emerged as a fat-dissolving alternative for both face and body.

One example is Aqualyx.


What is Aqualyx


Aqualyx is an injectable compound made from a family of acids that cause fat destruction in the body. The solution is water-based and contains ingredients that bind to the fat cell walls, before rupturing and releasing the fat to be dissolved by your own body.

In other words, the acids contained in Aqualyx work by liquefying and permanently destroying fat cells, which are then eliminated naturally by the body through the lymphatic system.


Aqualyx FAQs

  • How safe is Aqualyx?

    • Aqualyx is a safe and effective fat-dissolving injection designed to work with your body to get rid of excess fat cells.

  • Does Aqualyx get rid of cellulite?

    • Yes

  • Do you lose weight with Aqualyx?

    • Aqualyx is a fat removal therapy used as an alternative to liposuction. It is not intended for weight loss, but rather to improve the contour of the body.

  • Are fat dissolving injections permanent?

    • Once a fat cell has been destroyed, it has been permanently removed from your body. And the good news is that this cannot be undone, so the results are permanent.


Aqualyx Treatment Effectiveness

Aqualyx injections are very effective for face and body sculpting and are ideal for clients who favour minimally invasive treatments.

Aqualyx can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Double chin

  • Prejowl sulcus (a drooping of flesh, forming the ‘sides’ of a double chin)

  • Upper arms

  • Armpits

  • Waist

  • Hips

  • Saddlebags

  • Knees

  • Fat deposits on buttocks, chest and inner thighs


Most clients notice a visible difference within six weeks with subsequent treatments further improving the overall result. The number of treatments required ranges from one to eight, with intervals of four weeks in between.

Once Aqualyx dissolves the unwanted fat, the effect is normally permanent. However, you must try to maintain a stable weight as if you gain weight following the procedure, it is possible that results might be compromised.

Aqualyx is intended for people usually (but not always) between 18 to 60 years old, who have good skin elasticity.

After the treatment you should avoid applying any cosmetics onto the treated area for at least 12 hours and avoid all direct sources of heat and radiation (sunlight, UV-radiation, sauna etc.). Furthermore, you should abstain from particularly demanding physical exercise for at least seven days.

Aqualyx Side Effects and Contraindications aesthetics

The process usually takes anywhere from a half an hour to an hour. Swelling and minor bruising can occur directly after the procedure but should disappear within a few days.

A rarer side effect is scarring, which has been reported but is not known to occur with any regularity. Therefore, it is important to evaluate your skin’s elasticity prior to receive Aqualyx injections.

It is also possible (but very rare) that you could have an allergic reaction to one or more of the substances present in Aqualyx.

Finally, you should not receive Aqualyx injections if:

  • you are breastfeeding

  • you have an inability to produce fat (lipodystrophy) and/or any conditions that affect fat processing in your body

  • you are pregnant

  • you have any skin diseases or infections
