Aqualyx is a fat dissolving injection treatment performed by Dr. Jo Mennie, our in house specialist at the Dr. David Jack clinic. It is the perfect go to treatment for those stubborn areas of fat that you are struggling to lose with diet and exercise. Aqualyx is a non-surgical alternative to help contour your body in a targeted way.
HOW DOES AQUALYX FAT DISSOLVING TREATMENT WORK?
A non-surgical alternative to liposuction, Aqualyx procedure is an injectable treatment that contains a vegan friendly solution of a substance known as deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally found in the body where it acts in the stomach to break down fat from your diet.
When injected directly into areas of stubborn pockets of fat (for example the lower abdomen or under the chin), deoxycholic acid breaks down the cell membrane or ‘jacket’ surrounding each fat cell, causing it to rupture and release the contents, which is then absorbed and rushed out of the body. This process then produces an inflammatory response that allows the body to naturally and safely eliminate the fat cells naturally through the lymphatic system.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Almost any fatty area can be treated with Aqualyx. The most popular areas requested are the double chin, abdomen, and the love handle areas. Inner and outer thighs, back, and upper arms can also be treated.

Before starting any treatment, Dr. Mennie will complete a full medical history and examination to determine your suitability for the treatment. Following this you may be given the option to proceed with the treatment on the day. The treatment itself is quick and comprises of local anaesthetic injections, followed by injection of the aqualyx itself using a specialist thin needle, to minimise discomfort.
As the body is permanently breaking down the fat cells there will be a period of downtime. In the first 24 hours there can be a ‘sun-burn’ look and feel, with some bruising sometimes appearing for some patients. Some mild tenderness and skin irritation can last up to a week, and swelling for 2-3 weeks. Strenuous exercise and saunas should be avoided for 4 days.
After receiving Aqualyx fat dissolving injections results are visible once swelling subsides in 2-3 weeks.
The fat cells are permanently broken down. If the weight is maintained results will be permanent!
This depends on the individual patient. Based upon our experience, we recommend 1-2 sessions for the chin, and 2-4 sessions are typically required for the body. Treatments are recommended 4 weeks apart.
Aqualyx injections can only be performed by a qualified doctor or surgeon because it follows a strict and precise treatment protocol. Dr. Jo Mennie is one of a handful of doctors in the UK qualified to perform this treatment. Aqualyx should only ever be performed by those specifically trained in the injection technique used to administer the product. Treatments are provided at out clinic in Harley Street, London.
