Aqualyx®️ is an injectable fat reduction procedure, used to ‘dissolve’ stubborn pockets of fat which remain resistant to diet or exercise.

The Aqualyx®️ treatment is suitable for tackling areas around the face or on the body, wherever fat gathers. For example, areas that might be treated include:

Tummy, ‘muffin top’, stomach or abdomen

Gips or ‘saddle bags’

Thighs – including inner thigh area



‘Bingo wings’ – upper arms

Inner thighs

Double chin

‘Man boobs’

Fat cheeks

How does Aqualyx®️ Work?

Aqualyx®️ is based on a formulation containing deoxycholic acid. This is a secondary bile acid which the body naturally produces to liquefy the fat in the gut.

Aqualyx®️ injections liquefy the fat cells, destroying them permanently and releasing lipids which are then expelled by the body through the lymphatic system.

This is not a weight loss treatment or an alternative to diet and exercise; but Aqualyx®️ injections are very helpful in refining body shape by tackling those areas that are stubborn and resistant to exercise.

The human body is designed to store fat in certain areas as an ‘emergency ration’. Fat cells in the deep subcutaneous tissue are difficult to diminish. Aqualyx®️ literally reduces the amount of fat cells in those areas most resistant to toning.
