Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Benfleet

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving In Benfleet

Aqualyx fat dissolving treatment in Benfleet, Essex at Monika Advanced Aesthetics. Aqualyx is an injectable treatment used for non-surgical body contouring and localized fat reduction. It is a solution containing a compound called deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring bile acid that aids in the digestion and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into areas of unwanted fat deposits, Aqualyx works by disrupting fat cells, causing them to liquefy. The liquefied fat is then naturally eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system over time. This treatment is typically used to target areas such as the chin, jowls, abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, and upper arms.

The number of treatment sessions required depends on the individual and the area being treated. Multiple sessions, usually spaced a few weeks apart, may be needed to achieve the desired results.

It is important to note that Aqualyx is not a weight loss solution or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. It is most effective for reducing localized areas of stubborn fat that have not responded to diet and exercise.

Side effects

Aqualyx is generally considered safe when administered by trained healthcare professionals. However, like any medical procedure, there can be potential side effects. Some common side effects that may occur after Aqualyx treatment include:

  1. Swelling: Swelling is a common side effect after Aqualyx injections. It typically resolves within a few days but may last longer in some cases.
  2. Redness and Bruising: Injection sites may experience temporary redness and bruising. These usually fade within a few days or weeks.
  3. Pain or Discomfort: Some individuals may experience mild to moderate pain or discomfort at the injection site. This discomfort typically subsides within a few days.
  4. Numbness or Sensitivity: Temporary numbness or increased sensitivity in the treated area may occur. This is usually transient and resolves on its own.
  5. Inflammation: Inflammation can occur as a natural response to the treatment. It is typically mild and temporary.
  6. Itching or Skin Irritation: Some individuals may experience itching or skin irritation at the injection site. This is usually temporary and resolves without intervention.
  7. Infection or Abscess: Although rare, there is a risk of infection or the formation of an abscess at the injection site. It is important to ensure that the treatment is performed in a sterile environment by a trained professional to minimize this risk.


  1. Avoid touching or applying pressure to the treated area for at least 48 hours after the procedure. This helps minimize the risk of complications and allows the solution to work effectively.
  2. Avoid vigorous exercise and strenuous physical activities for a few days after the treatment. This can help reduce swelling and promote healing.
  3. Wear loose and comfortable clothing to minimize friction and pressure on the treated area.
  4. Apply cold compresses or ice packs to the treated area to help reduce swelling and discomfort. Be sure to use a cloth or towel as a barrier between the ice pack and your skin to prevent ice burn.
  5. Take over-the-counter pain relievers if you experience any mild discomfort or pain.
  6. Avoid saunas, hot baths, hot tubs, or any activities that expose the treated area to excessive heat for at least 48 hours after the procedure.
  7. Follow a balanced and healthy diet to support your body’s natural healing process.
  8. Stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  9. Avoid alcohol consumption for at least 48 hours after the treatment, as alcohol can increase the risk of swelling and bruising.
  10. Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your healthcare professional to monitor your progress and address any concerns or questions you may have.
