Remove fat around your chin with Fat Dissolving Injections

About Aqualyx®

Created by Doctors, Aqualyx® Fat Dissolving Injections remove fat. Although they are not a ‘weight loss’ solution, Aqualyx® injections are very good at treating specific problems such as double chins and fat around the neck area.

The treatment works through a form of ‘intralipotherapy’. During the procedure, a specially modified compound of cholanic acid is injected into the problem area. The compound liquefies the fat cells, destroying them permanently. The resulting lipids (contents of the fat cells) are eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.

Aqualyx® Fat Dissolving Injections are quick, effective, and very safe – they are carried out by a fully-registered nurse with over 30 years of professional experience. To find out how Aqualyx® can help you, please book a Free Consultation online now:

To give you an idea of price:

Aqualyx® starts from £80 / session for smaller areas (e.g. chin), and £100 / session for larger areas (e.g. stomach).

The number of treatments required depends on the size of the fatty deposit. Typically, 1-3 sessions are sufficient for smaller areas, while 2-8 treatments for larger areas. The sessions are generally spaced at 6 week intervals.

Aqualyx® consists of 12alfa-dihydroxy-5beta-24-oico cholanic acid sodium salt, which is a modified compound of cholanic acid - The ingredients are a polymer from 3, 6-Anhydro-L-Galactose and D-Galactose (0.5%), buffer systems (4.2%), sodium salt of (3α, 5α, 12α) - 3, 12-dihydroxy-5-cholan-24-acid (7.5%), water for injection purposes (87%), and sodium chloride (0.8%).

The buffer systems within Aqualyx® ensure that the cholanic acid compound is delivered to the target area, while the slow-release sugars minimise side effects by reducing the biological half life of the solution.

Aqualyx® Fat Dissolving Injections work through a form of ‘intralipotherapy’. The 12alfa-dihydroxy-5beta-24-oico cholanic acid sodium salt alters the surface tension of the fat cell membrane and increases its permeability. This causes the fat cells to expand and break up, releasing micro droplets of fatty liquid into the body. These micro droplets are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver.

Aqualyx® was developed by Doctor Professor Pasquale Motolese, president of the Italian Society of Aesthetic Medicine. It has been given CE approval for use in the UK, which means that it meets all of the required health and safety standards.

Although Aqualyx® is very safe, the injections must be administered by a medical professional – At VL Aesthetics, our Aqualyx® treatments are carried out by a fully-registered nurse with over 30 years of professional experience.

As long as you are generally healthy and do not have any skin diseases or infections in the treated area, there are very few medical reasons for why you should not undergo this treatment. However, Aqualyx® is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast feeding. It is also not recommended for people who have been diagnosed with lipodystrophy or any pathological condition.

We carry out a full medical assessment before starting your treatment, so if you are not a suitable candidate, we will find out before your treatment begins.

The injections themselves are relatively painless. However, the most common minor side effects are some redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area.

Should you have any concerns after your treatment, we will be happy to conduct a telephone consultation with you.

The most common minor side effects are some redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area.

Some people may experience light bruising, but this, and any other side effects, will usually resolve within a few days.

If you intend to have a facial treatment, e.g. around the chin area where the swelling may be obvious, you may wish to organise time away from work or social engagements.

If you would like to control any pain-related side effects, over the counter painkillers can be used.

Although they are not a ‘weight loss’ solution, Aqualyx® injections are very good at treating specific problems such as double chins, bingo wings, love handles, mummy tummies, and bra rolls.

If you are looking to lose a significant amount of weight, we have several options available. Please book a Free Consultation to discuss the option that suits you.

Although some patients may see a difference immediately after the treatment, for the very best results we recommend between two and five sessions - depending on which area is being treated.

Younger patients are more likely to see results after a longer period of time.

Whilst the body can regenerate fat cells, the process of regeneration is very slow. As such, once the fat cells are removed from a localised area, your results are as good as permanent.

However, if you do not continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle, your body will store fat in other areas where the fat cells still remain.

Aqualyx® injections are very good at treating specific problems such as double chins, bingo wings, love handles, mummy tummies, and bra rolls.

More generally, Aqualyx® can be used to treat any small pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, back, knees, and ankles.

If you are looking to lose a significant amount of weight, we have several options available. Please book a Free Consultation to discuss the option that suits you.
