What is Aqualyx?
Aqualyx is an injectable solution that dissolves small pockets of unwanted fat. It’s not yet approved by the FDA for use in the U.S. but is widely used in Europe. It’s primarily intended to treat a double chin and other smaller pockets of fat. Using a synthetic form of deoxycholate, a substance your body makes that helps to absorb fat, Aqualyx “liquefies fat cells, destroying them for good,
What happens during an Aqualyx treatment?
Before treatment, you’ll be given a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, to minimize discomfort. Then your provider will make a series of injections—typically 20 to 50 across the treatment area, depending on the size of the area and amount of fullness. Some people describe the treatment as uncomfortable, but it shouldn’t be too painful.
Afterward, you can expect swelling, tenderness, or light bruising. These side effects typically resolve within a few days to a week. The swelling can be noticeable, especially under the chin where it’s harder to hide, but you can expect to return to your daily routine quickly. If your face or neck was treated, avoid makeup and use only a gentle cleanser for at least 12 hours, to prevent further irritation.
Once the fat cells have been liquefied, your body will metabolize and eliminate them. This process usually takes six to eight weeks, but you may see continued improvements for up to three months.
