What is Aqualyx Fat Dissolving?

Aqualyx was developed for the non-surgical fat reduction of localized fat under the skin. It is an injectable, gel-based aqueous solution, which dissolves the fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable. Fat-dissolving injections work by injecting into the subcutaneous layer of fat, breaking down the fat cells and allowing them to pass through the lymphatic system.

If you are looking for advice or a consultation before the treatment is carried out, contact our Milton Keynes clinic.
