Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections @ NUYU’s Lichfield Beauty Salon

Aqualyx® is a non-surgical solution to minimise and remove stubborn localised pockets of fat. It is ideal for those who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet but have pockets of fat that won’t shift, even with focused exercise.
This technique, known as Aqualysis™ or Aquaplasty™, consists of injecting the solution into localised fat deposits. Aqualyx® consists of phosphatidylcholine – a natural substance which, when given in higher doses, can cause the destruction of fat cells.
Destroying the fat cells is a long-term solution provided you retain a stable weight, eat healthily and continue exercise as usual. Aqualyx® leads to a permanent reduction of fatty tissue; once removed, fat cells will not reappear.
Important: Aqualyx® is a body contouring treatment not a weight loss solution. Treatments with Aqualyx® are only applicable for small, localised areas. Clients must be within one stone of their recommended body weight to have treatment and be able to pinch about 3cm of fat.

What areas can Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections be used?

  • Stomach (inc. six pack definition)
  • Love handles
  • Arms
  • Chin
  • Flanks and waist
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Underarms and armpits

What can i expect during treatment?

After a pre-treatment consultation your nurse prescriber or doctor will mark out the area of concern. Aqualyx® is mixed with Lidocaine (anaesthetic) before injection for greater comfort and a number of injections in a fan effect make sure the area if fully covered. The elastic needles allow small areas to be tackled effectively such as double chin or jowls.

Are There Any Side Effects?

As Aqualyx® a non-surgical solution it means no downtime and no general Anaesthetic risks. As there are no incisions, stitches are not required and scarring is very unlikely.

There are some temporary side effects, which include bruising, swelling, redness and irritation in the injection area. Sometimes it may feel a slightly tender to touch, numb or itchy but these side effects usually reside after 1-3 days.

How Many Treatments Would I Need?

A reduction in fat deposits can be seen after just one treatment, however three sessions are recommended to achieve desired results.

What Results Can I Expect To See?

A reduction in fat in the targeted area can be noted a number of weeks post-treatment. The speed at which noticeable results are seen will vary depending on the stability of the cell membranes; younger clients are more likely to see results after a longer period. In very small fat pads, the desired results can already be seen after one treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Aqualyx is developed for the non-surgical reduction of localized stubborn fat pockets under the skin. It is an injectable, gel-based aqueous solution, which dissolves fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable.

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are a specially-formulated compound solution which is injected by a specially trained doctor into the problem area. It works by attaching to fatty deposits, breaking them down over time. The fat is then naturally dissolved and flushed out by the body. Results are effective, quick, and minimally invasive.

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can be used to treat almost all small deposits of fat, but the most popular treatment areas are on the chin, thigh, hips, arm, and stomach.

You will always be treated by Sophie Birch who is an experienced medical professional trained in aesthetics. She has over 15 years’ experience working in the industry across the UK. She is qualified from leading aesthetic institution trainers to carry out basic, advanced and masterclass techniques for facial rejuvenation. She is also fully insured to carry out aesthetic procedures.

There will be some discomfort while injecting but if needed, can add lidocaine (an aesthetic) to the AQUALYX solution so that the two are injected together to minimise discomfort.

The appointment will take about one hour but this can differ depending on the area of treatment.

It varies with the patient and treatment areas but in general you can expect about one to two days. There are a few things you need to do to look after yourself post procedure. We will provide you with the Aftercare information and explain everything you need to do.

Results are fast but it’s recommended to have between two and five sessions to see a significant effect. Treatment for fat pockets underneath the neck and chin, for example, may require 1 – 3 treatments, while treatment for fat pockets on the hips and thighs may require about 8 treatments.

AQUALYX is not recommended when the patient is suffering from acute or chronic skin disease in the affected area. For safety reasons all patients with a medical history including anaphylactic reactions, severe allergies, severe organic or physical illnesses, autoimmune disease or diabetes, as well as women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are excluded from any treatment with AQUALYX.

People treated with AQUALYX will typically experience minimal side effects when compared to more invasive procedures, such as liposuction. Side effects include some redness, swelling and tenderness in the treated area. All these are expected side effects that will settle within either a few days or weeks depending on how you react to it. The manufacturers report that to date no major side effects of AQUALYX use have been reported to them.
