Aqualyx and Lipolax are suitable for those wanting to shrink small areas of fatty tissue.

It is not a weight loss solution.

Ideal candidates are in the healthy BMI range and follow a balanced lifestyle

Aqualyx® and Lipolax® are non surgical solutions to shrink small pockets of stubborn fat. Even when we diet and exercise regularly there can be stubborn areas that are hard to combat. This technique consists of injecting small amounts of a natural solution "phosphatidylcholine" into the target area. This solution permanently destroys fat cells, reducing the size of the treatment area.

Before your fat dissolving treatment, we will undertake a consultation. We will talk about your areas of concern, your medical history and what you would like to achieve from your session. This can be done over the phone, face to face or on the same day as your treatment.


For your comfort a local anaesthetic cream can be applied before commencing your fat dissolving treatment.


The area of concern is marked with a white skin pencil, and the area is injected with a range of small injections around 1-2cm's apart, covering the area.

Simple aftercare is explained, and you will be given information to take away.

You may have some redness and some puffiness immediately after your treatment - this is normal and to be expected.

Enjoy Your Results!!

What is Aqualyx or Lipolax?

Aqualyx® and Lipolax are clinically proven gel-based solutions, derived from cholanic acid, which when injected will dissolve and help to break down fats.

Both are different brands, that are effective at treating small deposits of stubborn fat.

How do fat dissolving injections work?

Aqualyx® or Lioplax 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

Is there any after effects?

Yes. Immediately after treatment you may appear red and swollen with some bruising on the treated area. Aqualyx® works by causing an

inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in obvious swelling for 3-5 days.

Is it painful?

We will numb the areas that you want treated prior to your session to ensure your comfort.

How many sessions will I need?

This is solely dependant on you as a client, and the type and stubbornness of either the visceral (abdomen) or submental (under chin) fat you are carrying. We will however guide you into a realistic treatment plan should you be eligible for this procedure. An average we generally see in clinic is 1-2 sessions for the chin area and bra strap fat, and 2-4 sessions for the abdominal and thighs. An indication of successful treatments, for every 10 clients that our clinic has seen, 2 have required a second session in the area to target stubborn deposits, as again results do solely depend on you. Results are individual, and can not be guarenteed.

How soon will I see results?

Results can be seen within as little as 2-6 weeks, however in some cases it can take upto 3 months, so do plan ahead for this treatment.

How long do I need to wait between sessions?

We advise that 3-4 weeks should be left between your sessions

This is a normal result of the injections. The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears in a few days. If it continues or if other reactions occur, please call us. The results directly after the treatment should not be seen as the final result.

Avoid touching the treatment area 6 hours after the treatment.

Avoid strenuous exercise for 48 hours

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER - 2+ liters of water per day is recommended.

After that the area can be gently washed with soap and water, and light make-up can be applied in the case of the neck/jaw area after 24 hours.

Until the initial swelling has resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat e.g. solarium and sunbathing) or extreme cold. If you are using aspirin or any similar medication, be aware that these may increase the bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
