Fat Dissolving Injections - Aqualyx

As an incredible alternative to liposuction, Aqualyx® offers a non-surgical and relatively painless way to shift unwanted pockets of fat.

Aqualyx® works by liquifying targeted fat cells, which are then naturally removed by the body’s lymphatic system.

The specialised elastic needle used by our clinicians allows for pinpoint precision while making the treatment more comfortable for the client.

Our fat dissolving injections are extremely popular, and are perfect for targeting areas like the outer thighs, love handles, and underarms.

As the fat cells are completely destroyed, the results are long-lasting. Though it’s important that the client continues exercising and eating well to prevent new fat from forming in the target areas.

The pain of the treatment is fairly minimal with the help of topical anaesthetic pre-procedure.

Depending on the volume of fat in your target areas, you’ll generally need to repeat the treatment 2-8 times, every 3-4 weeks.

Aqualyx® requires minimal downtime and doesn’t involve any of the risks associated with surgical procedures or general anaesthetics.

Aqualyx® is one of the best alternative non-surgical solution available to clients who do not wish to go under the knife (surgical Lipo-suction).
