Do you lose weight with Aqualyx?
Aqualyx is a fat removal therapy used as an alternative to liposuction. It is not intended for weight loss, but rather to improve the contour of the body.
Are fat dissolving injections permanent?
Once a fat cell has been destroyed, it has been permanently removed from your body. And the good news is that this cannot be undone, so the results are permanent. However, you must try to maintain a stable weight as if you gain weight following the procedure, it is possible that results might be compromised.
Does the procedure hurt?
We apply topical anaesthetic cream prior to treatment to numb the skin, this helps to provide pain relief during the procedure.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after treatment the treated area can appear slightly red and occasionally there is some mild bruising, swelling and tenderness at the site of injection. This is normal and generally resolves within a couple of days.
Serious side effects from injections are very rare – however when we use products there is always a risk of allergy and whenever we break the skin, it carries the risk of infection.
Treatment will only be carried out following a thorough medical consultation with our Advanced Nurse Practitioner/Independent Prescriber. This allows side effects to be discussed in detail before treatment is commenced.
Price is dependent upon the size of the treatment area.
Small Area – £75
Large Area – £150
