Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections

Aqualyx is a compound solution from the deoxycholate family that has been physically modified and, by creating a slow release sugar-based system, the biological half-life is reduced which results in minimal side effects.

I have found Aqualyx to be a very valuable addition to the range of treatments I can offer my clients for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise. It’s a minimally invasive option that patients tolerate well and I am impressed with the results that we’ve seen at the Viva Aesthetic Clinic.


Developed by renowned aesthetic surgeon the late Professor Motolese, Aqualyx® has been available internationally since 2009, and over 2,000,000 vials have been used for patient treatments in 49 countries worldwide.

Professor Motolose developed a technique, for the treatment known as ‘Aqualyx or ‘Aquaplasty™’ and a precise protocol is followed. Aqualyx or Aquaplasty™ consists of depositing the solution into localised areas of fat such as saddle bags, thighs, stomachs, chins and knees. It can also be used to treat pseudo-gynocomastia in men. Aqualyx  liquefies the fat cell, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.

Aqualy  can be used in conjunction with an ultrasound device to assist in the dissipation of Aqualyx  throughout the localised fat cells.

The treatment should only be performed by a Doctor or Surgeon,Dentist and Nurse Prescriber with  specialist training and criteria. Our lead Nurse Kristeen Geddes has passed the criteria to be able to treat her patients independently the only one in Tayside to offer this.

Patients report good tolerance of the treatment.

The treatment will be repeated between two and eight times depending on the number of small pockets of fat tissue to be reduced. The treatment is repeated every  four weeks.

After each treatment patients can expect some swelling, bruising redness and skin irritation and tenderness in the area treated, which will subside after four to six days. Swelling occurs in the chin area

Contraindications: pregnancy and lactation, liposdystrophy, pathological conditions and for those under 18 years or over 60 years.

A reduction in fat deposits can usually be seen after just one treatment, however between three and eight sessions are required to see the optimal effect. The speed at which results are seen will vary depending on the stability of the cell membranes; younger patients are more likely to results after a longer period. Results may vary from patient to patient and case by age.
