What are fat dissolving injections? 

Fat Dissolving Injections are a safe, effective treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long lasting results, which means you can banish those annoyingly wobbly bits.

These injections can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.

Made up from a number of different plant based compounds that have been refined in a lab environment. Aqualyx dissolves the membranes of fat cells in the treated area. The fat cells become unstable and break open. The fatty acids contained within the cell are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver.

are fat injections suitable for me? 

​If you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle and are close to your ideal body weight, but have isolated stubborn areas of fat then injectable dissolving might be suitable. 

 

Popular areas that we treat are double chins, moobs, saddle bags, inner thighs  and abdomen - including defining a six pack.

Fat dissolving is not suitable if you:

  • Have diabetes.

  • Have liver or kidney disease.

  • Have active skin problem in the area to be treated.

  • Are taking blood thinning medicine e.g warfarin.

how long does it take to see results?

It may take a few treatments to see results. The procedure is repeated every three to four weeks until the desired results are achieved, with an expert consultant advising how many sessions they would recommend for each patient.

 

Results aren’t immediate after each treatment — swelling may take a few weeks to subside, and it typically takes three to eight weeks for fat deposits to become noticeably reduced.
