Aqualyx is a fat dissolving treatment that helps to target small localised areas of fat which are resistant to diet and exercise. Scientists have copied the chemical structure of the bile acids made in our gallbladders that naturally digest the fat that we eat. This specially formulated, biocompatible solution is then directly injected into fatty deposits breaking them down over time.
The fat is taken out of our bodies through the lymphatic system into the blood stream and out through the urine. This treatment is ideal for contouring and is not a weight loss treatment. It can also be used to dissolve lipomas. Aqualyx can only be performed by a qualified doctor. Larger areas of fat are treated more effectively with CoolSculpting.
