Do you have stubborn areas of fat that will just not budge? Do they refuse to disappear, despite your best efforts at maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine? We all have those areas of our bodies that we wish we could change or alter slightly, and the Aqualyx fat removal injection followed by state-of-the-art 3D LIPO Ultrasound Cavitation could be the perfect solution that you are looking for.
The combination therapy can help banish those stubborn areas of fat for good, using unique techniques combined together for maximum results. The human body naturally stores excess energy as subcutaneous fat and the distribution of these fatty deposits under the skin are determined by our genetics. Aqualyx injections are very effective in dissolving and sculpting stubborn areas of fat – which means that we can reduce the appearance in any problematic areas you might have.
How Do Aqualyx Injections Work?
Aqualyx is a CE marked medicine that dissolves fat cells when injected into the regional deposits of adipose tissue under the skin, it can help remove and reduce the appearance of fatty areas of the body. The medicine was developed and patented by a renowned Aesthetic Surgeon – Professor Pasquale Motolese.
Aqualyx is administered through a unique injection technique known as ‘AqualysisTM’, that follows a precise protocol. The treatment should only be performed by a competent doctor who has undertaken specialised training in using long, flexible AqualysisTM cannulas. Aqualyx is very versatile and can be injected into almost anywhere with localised fat deposits.
The main component of Aqualyx is Deoxycholic acid (DC), a secondary bile acid naturally present in the body. When injected into the subcutaneous layer, it destabilises the fat cell membrane and causes permanent dissolution of fat cells. A reduction in fat deposits can be noticed when the released fatty contents are removed naturally through the lymphatic system.
Do I Need More Than One Session?
Depending on the chosen area, and how well your body responds, will dictate how many sessions you need. During one session, up to 4 vials of Aqualyx solutions are typically used to treat one area. The treatment will be repeated typically between 2-5 times depending on the thickness of the fatty layer.
We recommend that the injections are repeated every 3-4 weeks until the desired outcome has been achieved. After each treatment, patients can expect some swelling, redness, itchiness and tenderness in the area treated. These symptoms are common and will subside after a few days.
Where Can You Have an Aqualyx Injection?
The injection can be given anywhere, but popular areas are stomachs, love handles, hips, knees, and chins. It can also be used to treat buffalo humps and pseudo-gynaecomastia (chest fat) in men.
Most people have areas of their body that they wish were slimmer, or more stream-lined, and Aqualyx injections are a fantastic way to contour the body and get the shape you desire.

Our Ultrasound Cavitation Equipment
Here at Harley Street MD, we use an upgraded 4 cyclone cavitation transducer hand-piece that will ensure a large area is treated with maximum intensity. During the cavitation phase, ultrasound waves mechanically disrupt the cell membrane of the fat cells, forcing them to break down and release their fatty contents. It’s a great way to ensure you see big results, and it’s the reason our clients love this treatment course so much.
3D technology is certainly one of the most advanced and complete devices of its kind globally. It was recently awarded a rating of 9/10 in OK! Magazine, and it came first against other treatments on the market. We provide ultrasonic cavitation at no extra charge to complement your Aqualyx treatment if there are no contraindications to the treatment.
