Fat Dissolving


An alternative to liposuction is Aqualyx Lipotherapy: a fat removal therapy which reduces stubborn fat deposits in notoriously tricky areas such as the stomach, outer and inner thighs, and the chin area.

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are a specially-formulated compound solution which is injected by an expertly trained professional into the problem area. It works by attaching to fatty deposits, breaking them down over time. The fat is then naturally dissolved and flushed out by the body. Results are effective, quick, and minimally invasive.

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can be used to treat almost all small deposits of fat, but the most popular treatment areas include the chin, thighs, arms, and stomach.


The Treatment

Aqualyx is a non-surgical fat dissolving injection treatment. The procedure uses a solution of deoxycholic acid to safely and effectively eliminate small, stubborn pockets of fat which resist diet and exercise.

How it works

Aqualyx is an injectable solution which liquefies fat cells, destroying them for good. The lipids are then released and eliminated naturally by the lymphatic system. Quick, convenient and minimally invasive, Aqualyx should always be administered by a trained doctor or surgeon, which we are here at Fab YourSelf. FabYourself has many years experience of successfully administering it for non-surgical fat reduction, particularly in the face and neck in a treatment called the Fat Loss Facelift.

Treatment Areas

As multiple injections are necessary to treat larger areas, it is generally recommended for small, hard-to-treat areas, such as double chins or fatty deposits above the knees or ankles. It can be safely used in almost any area, but CoolSculpting may be a more appropriate treatment for larger treatment zones.


How does fat dissolving work?

A solution is injected into the localised deposits of tissue into areas which liquefies the fat cell and destroys it permanently. The lipids (contents of the fat cells) are then released and eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.

Why are injections a great alternative to liposuction?

It's effective and minimally invasive, unlike liposuction which requires invasive surgery, general anaesthetic and significant downtime after treatment.

When will I start to the see results from fat dissolving?

Results are fast but it's recommended to have between two and five sessions to see a significant effect. Younger patients are more likely to see results after a longer period of time.

Who can perform Lipotherapy?

This treatment can only be performed by a qualified doctor or surgeon because it follows a strict and precise treatment protocol. Steph Francis is one of the few qualified professionals in the UK that have been trained in this treatment. Aqualyx Lipotherapy uses specialised needles to administer the solution into the fat deposits and therefore should only ever be carried out by medical professionals who have had special training with the product.

Am I eligible for fat dissolving injections?

You will be required to have a full consultation with us before any fat dissolving treatment, but generally this treatment is not suitable for those classed as clinically overweight and those aged under 18 or over 60.
