What are aqualyx fat dissolving injections?
Aqualyx is an injectable solution that is used to 'dissolve' stubborn pockets of fat on the body or double chin area to help with your body goals. We all have areas of fat under the skin, which just wont go with diet and exercise no matter how strict we are. This is especially true as we get older. Now there is a safe, effective treatment to PERMANENTLY get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat.
How is it done?
The solution, which was developed by an Italian professor of plastic surgery, is injected into the fat tissues under the skin using a microcannula. Dr. Sam mixes the solution with local anaesthetic to numb as it's injected in order to maxiise your comfort during the procedure. Aqualyx fat dissolvng injections performed at EdenMed Aesthetics and Rejuvenation Clinics in Chelsea and Bournemouth are performed by Dr. Sam using the off-label protocol outlined in the scientific article on Aqualyx.

How does it work?
It works by causing the individual fat cells to swell and break up. The broken fat cells are then cleared from the body by the lymphatic drainage system and removed via the kidneys. It's very important, therefore, to drink plenty of water in the days running up to and for two weeks after the treatment is done. At least 2-3L per day
What can I expect?
It is very normal and expected to have a little bit of stinging during the treatment. After the Aqualyx fat dissolving treatment there may be some redness affecting the skin and the fat will swell and become 'squigy' for a few days after. This is generally a good sign as it means the fat cells are swelling and breaking down. It's fine to take painkillers, such as paracetamol as long as they're safe in you, before and after treatment, but avoid anti-inflammaories as these can cause bood thinning and increase the risk of bruising.
How much can be treated at once?
The maximum number of vials we can use in one session is 5. The number used depends on the size of the area being treated. Typically people need between 2 and 5 sessions a month apart to get the best results.
How long does it last?
The fat that is treated and that responds to treatment is gone forever. Therefore, if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet, the effects are permanent.
