Fat Dissolving Injections in London for Men

If you want to get rid of small pockets of fat around your stomach, chest, chin, arms, hips or back — but diet and exercise aren’t helping — fat dissolving injections could be right for you. Sometimes, even with the strictest diet and exercise routine, we fail to get rid of certain areas of fatty deposits around the body. Stubborn fat such as this is very frustrating, but with the non-invasive technology, Aqualyx, we can contour your body and get rid of fat without surgery. Read on to find out more about fat dissolving injections in London.

Aqualyx is an injection lipolysis (or fat dissolving injection) that became popular after its launch in Italy in 2009. It is a revolutionary technique that can dissolve small amounts of subcutaneous fat that is then released through the lymphatic system. It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a solution for overweight or obese people, but rather for anyone with a healthy BMI who wants to reduce unflattering and stubborn areas of fat without the need to go under the knife.

For men, it is a particularly popular treatment for the reduction of fat in areas such as under the chin, chest, abdomen and waistline. Our Aqualyx fat dissolving injections can be done in under an hour, and the results can be long-term if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight-management program. 

How Do Fat Dissolving Injections Work?

Fat dissolving injections work by hydrolysing the wall of the fat cell to liquefy the fat, destroying it in the process. Studies prove that injection lipolysis such as Aqualyx causes a disruption in fat cells, which subsequently leads to the natural clearance of fat via the normal system of the kidneys. While you may lose weight with this procedure, it is not meant to be a weight-loss solution, making it ideal for men who want to contour small areas of the body.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

The treatments are done every four to six weeks until the desired result is achieved. On average, three to five sessions are required depending on the volume of the fat deposit and how your body responds to the treatment. Some people see great results after a couple of treatments while some need more for larger areas. Whether you are a man who is interested in reducing some local fat around your waist or a bodybuilder who is after a more defined six-pack, fat dissolving injections may be the treatment to get you one step closer to your goals.

Are Fat Dissolving Injections Safe?

Aqualyx is an approved medical device that has been used on millions of patients. No major side effects have been reported with treatment, but you could experience redness or slight bruising at the injection site or swelling that could last a few weeks. Because of this, you will not see your final results until after the recommended course of treatment is complete. The downtime is minimal, and you can return to normal activities, but you may want to give yourself a day off from work and exercise. No general anaesthesia is required for the procedure, but we use local anaesthesia to minimise discomfort. We recommend you book a complimentary check-up three weeks after the procedure so we can review your progress.
