How do Fat-Dissolving Injections Work?

The non-surgical treatments called Aqualyx & Celluform are simple, safe, and effective alternatives to liposuction with a friendlier price tag!

The treatment involves injections of Aqualyx or Celluform into areas of stubborn fat. They contain plant polymers that bind with the cell walls of the fat tissue and release the fat to be dissolved.

Once the formula has liquified the fat cell, it’s then eliminated through urine over a three-week period.

What is Aqualyx?

Aqualyx is a non-surgical, injectable treatment that is used for fat dissolving. It is made up of a solution of deoxycholic acid, which is a natural acid found in the body that helps to break down and eliminate fat.

How does Aqualyx Fat Dissolving work?

Aqualyx works by injecting the solution into the targeted area, where it breaks down and dissolves the fat cells. The body then naturally eliminates the fat through the lymphatic system.

Does Aqualyx actually work to reduce fat?

Does Aqualyx actually work to reduce fat?

Yes, it does!

While results can’t be compared to surgical liposuction, where large amounts of fat are permanently removed from the body, the results of fat dissolving injections are still permanent.

Why not just diet and exercise?

Why not just use diet & exercise?

Sometimes diet and exercise are insufficient to get the form and profile we desire, and some regions are left behind, stubborn and difficult to shift.

AQUALYX injections can help with this since they can be used to target and break down fatty cell accumulation.

Fat cells are broken down and eliminated by regular biological functions after treatment, resulting in a slimmer contour.

Aftercare for fat dissolving injections

You will have some swelling and redness in the area where we dissolve the fat for a few weeks.

This starts to settle after a few days and is normally gone in 3-4 weeks. You may have some discomfort but this is not usually severe. A little bruising is expected. You should not exercise for 5 days and some patients find mild compression clothing (e.g. Spandex) helps for non-facial treatment areas.

A low-fat diet can help to increase the effectiveness of Aqualyx. Long-term benefit is possible with a healthy lifestyle. The doctor or nurse will see you again after 4-6 weeks for review and consider further treatment.

While it is generally a safe and effective treatment, it is important to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results and minimize the risk of side effects.

After receiving Aqualyx injections, it is normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. You should avoid massaging or rubbing the area, and you should also avoid applying any heat to the treated area (such as using a heating pad or taking hot baths). You should also avoid wearing tight clothing or participating in strenuous activities that could put pressure on the treated area.

You may be advised to take over-the-counter pain medication if you experience discomfort after the treatment. You should also keep the treated area clean and dry, and you may be advised to use a cold compress or take a pain reliever to reduce swelling and discomfort.

It is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner closely, as improper aftercare can increase the risk of side effects. If you experience any unusual symptoms or have any concerns after your treatment, you should contact the clinic for further advice.

By following your practitioner’s instructions and taking good care of the treated area, you can help to minimize the risk of side effects and achieve the desired outcome.

Absolutely superb clinic. Can't recommend James, Keli and their team enough. The team at Freyja truly care about their clients and getting the right results. I've had consultations for both dermatology and aesthetics everyone I've seen has shown true compassion and I've never felt under any pressure to get treatments done and all consultations have been incredibly detailed. Thanks to Freyja not only has my skin improved but my mental health and confidence have improved too. I'm no longer embarrassed about my skin and admitting that I have Roseaca, as thanks to James and Keli I now have the right diagnosis and understand my condition. I'm now following a course of IPL and Hydrafacials with Sigita and Hattie who are both outstanding at what they do, these ladies are so knowledgeable and thorough and always make sure I'm comfortable throughout treatments. The Nantwich clinic is in a beautiful location with plenty of parking, everything in both clinics is ultra modern and clean. If there was an award for best clinic in the universe Freyja would win it hands down.
