What are Aqualyx fat dissolving injections?
Aqualyx is a safe, effective fat dissolving injection treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long lasting results, and can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring but is not a treatment for weight loss.
What is Aqualyx?
Aqualyx is made up from several different plant-based compounds that have been refined in a lab environment. Aqualyx dissolves the membranes of fat cells in the treated area, these cells then become unstable and break down. The fatty acids contained within the cell are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver.

If you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle and are close to your ideal body weight but have isolated stubborn areas of fat, then Aqualyx may be suitable for you.
