Aqualyx is an injectable fat loss treatment. It is a gel-based solution, derived from cholanic acid, which is produced by our bile duct to help up break down fats.
This skin treatment is licensed for use in the UK for localised or spot removal of fat from areas such as the chin, knees, hips, thighs or under the buttocks and is generally regarded as safe. It is not a weight loss solution and is suitable for smaller, stubborn pockets of fat, not large area fat reduction.
The acids present in Aqualyx cause fat to dissolve in the body. Plastic surgeons use Aqualyx for body contouring. They may inject it into different areas of the body, such as the:
Doctors may also use the substance to treat a condition called pseudo-gynecomastia in men. This causes extra fat tissue to grow in the chest area, giving the appearance of breasts.
When injected into the body, Aqualyx can reduce the appearance of fat to give a smoother, more contoured appearance. While a person will see changes after one treatment, they’ll usually require more than one treatment session to see maximum results.
I've visited the clinic on two separate occasions now, and each time had a really positive experience. I met with both Dr Vidal and Alise, both of which treated me with great care and made sure I fully understood my treatment and answered any questions I had. I highly recommend.
Morpheus 8 Facial that was excellent. The setting the staff and the actual treatment itself was 10/10
I had the most wonderful experience. I had Morpheus 8 Treatment done by lovely Mariah who was extremely knowledgeable and professional. For a treatment that it’s supposed to be a little uncomfortable I had hardly any discomfort and my recovery time was extremely short!! I highly recommend Skin IQ. Ana Hijazi
I just had my first Morpheus 8 treatment last week and I want to send a big thanks to my wonderful Nurse Ida! She has amazing knowledge and was explaining everything and calming me down. After having numbing cream on for around an hour the treatment was completely bearable. The redness was almost gone by the evening and no noticeable swelling. Some dry patches on my neck for a few days but otherwise no downtime for me. A week after my treatment I can already feel a bit more tightening of my jowls I can’t wait for my next treatment and the final results!
