Double chin fat dissolving

If you suffer with stubborn pockets of fat in the chin region, then Aqualyx may be the treatment for you. Double chin (otherwise known as the submental fat) is the most common area we treat with Aqualyx.

This revolutionary new fat dissolving treatment is the non-surgical solution to Liposuction. Aqualyx is designed to remove stubborn areas of fat in the face and neck which are resistant to diet and exercise changes. Dissolved fat cells will not return or re-develop; therefore, this is a permanent procedure** as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

How does it work?

The active substance, deoxycholate causes the break-down of fat cells and the release of fatty acids which are eliminated by the body’s normal metabolic processes. The number of treatments required differ from patient to patient. Generally, 2 to 4 sessions are required, with intervals of 4 to 6 weeks to obtain successful results.

The treatment begins to work immediately. Swelling in the area is a common side effect for the first week or so and should be anticipated. Unfortunately, there is no way to speed this process up but this inflammation actually helps to give the best results, as it causes tissue contraction in the area.

*All of our treatments require minimal down time. Any potential side effects, such as temporary bruising and swelling will be discussed during your consultation.

** If patients maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.

Frequently asked questions

AQUALYX is an injectable, hydrous, micro-gelantuous solution, which is biocompatible and biodegradable. It causes the dissolution of fat cells, after which the body then expels the released fatty acids naturally. AQUALYXTM is a complex containing detergent from the desoxycholate family that has been physically modified in order to reduce the biological half- life and the sugar-based slow release system results in minimal side effects.

How does it work?

During AQUALYSIS treatment, AQUALYX is injected directly into the subcutaneous fat tissue using a cannula. Within the following weeks the treated fat cells are gradually dissolved.
