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 us break down fats.

It is licensed for use in the UK for localised or spot removal of fat from areas such as the chin, belly, arms, 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 solution works by disrupting the surface of the fat cells, causing them to weaken and become permeable 

Aqualyx is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast feeding, patients with auto-immune disease, diabetics and patients who have had severe anaphylactic reactions and allergies.  It is also not recommended for those people who have been diagnosed with lipodystrophy or any pathological conditions.
