Fat dissolving

What is it?

AQUALYX® was developed by the renowned aesthetic surgeon Prof. Pasquale Motolese in 2002 and has been used for many years for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat under the skin. The gel-based aqueous solution dissolves fat in areas such as the chin, stomach, outer and inner thighs, hips, knees, back and upper arms. If you’d like to understand if this is the right treatment for you or you have any questions please give us a call at the Cambridge Aesthetics Lounge on 01223 782408.

Fat dissolving

The solution will dissolve the fat cells, which then undergo degradation and absorption by the body over a length of 4 - 6 weeks. Therefore, results can take several weeks to become visible. Swelling and discomfort may last for around 3-5 days and subside dramatically. Once the initial swollen phase is over, there may be small lumps and bumps which are bruises under the skin that will take a couple of weeks to resolve. These are not usually visible or only slightly visible. The face requires only a small amount of solution, so the side effects are minimal.

The length of the procedure depends on the size of the area. One large area can take up to 40 mins.

This purely depends on your lifestyle. Fat cells could regenerate a few years later if you have a high-calorie intake and sedentary lifestyle. In the body, one treatment is rarely enough so we provide a quote for the whole process and then you just pay for each treatment.

Aqualyx can be an uncomfortable procedure in the body but much less so in the face. We will do our best to numb the areas.

Bruising is frequent, transitory and should be considered a normal consequence of the treatment.

Swelling, bruising and pain (more than 50% of cases and depending on the area) and can last around 7-14 days. We must make it very clear that Aqualyx is not a substitute for diet and exercise and cannot fix you if you are overweight.
