Fat Dissolving Injection

Aqualyx is a non-surgical treatment used to improve and reduce stubborn fat in areas where it is difficult to shift with regular exercising and a balanced diet.

The Aqualyx process consists of injecting the solution into localised fat deposits. Aqualyx is an injectable compound made from the deoxycholate family of acids. The product may also be called Motolese’s Solution, named for the professor introducing it. The acids present in Aqualyx cause fat destruction in the body.

This solution destroys fat cells; this type of fat-dissolving treatment leads to a permanent reduction of fat cells.

A significant factor to consider is that Aqualyx is not a weight loss solution but a body contouring treatment.

Similar to Aqualyx, our clinic also provides DesoBody and DesoFace treatments, targeted specifically for fat reduction in the body and facial areas, respectively.

If you would like to book a consultation, we are open from 10.00 am – 8.00 pm Monday to Friday.

The Procedure

Prior To Treatment

Your trained practitioner will perform a details assessment, and photos will be taken to record results during your Aqualyx journey. We will make sure that you are a good candidate for this treatment, and your current medical history will be assessed before going ahead with Aqualyx. You will be informed of the do’s and don’ts, and the after-care recommendations will be explained in detail.


Aqualyx can come with mild discomfort due to its acidic properties. Most patients will feel some mild uneasiness and itchiness around the treated areas. Initial swelling is to be expected; in fact, the swelling will increase during the first 3 hours and stay for 3 to 7 days. Redness will appear, and the area treated will feel inflamed, which is normal.

After Treatment

Aqualyx will result in excessive swelling of the area treated, with some mild redness and possible itchiness and tenderness to the touch. The main side effects of the injected site can be bruising, swelling, redness, numbness, itchiness or tenderness, but these will last from 3 to 7 days. These side effects can last up to 14 days in some cases.

What To Expect

Mild discomfort during and after the procedure. The area treatment will swell for up to 7 days, and potential bruising will be expected. In areas like double chin, the swelling can be excessive but normal. The patient needs to understand the aftercare to plan the treatment around their schedule.

Cannot rate this clinic highly enough. From initial booking and greeting from Carly who is always so lovely and accommodating, through to the treatment with Flavio. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my face. He takes time and pride in his procedures. He makes you feel so special as a patient, he shares advice, he makes you feel safe and talks through everything with you. You leave feeling so confident in your appearance. Flavio’s work is unmatched, truly an artist and a magician.

Lovely welcoming clinic,Carly and Marina are fabulous, and I always feel like I am given the best service. I will be back for more treatments soon
I had a fabulous deep cleanse facial by Marina and it was spectacular. Amazing results and just what I needed at the end of a holiday! I’ve been to the clinic on a few occasions for this facial and each time it has been the best! It is the only clinic I will go to for a deep cleanse facial as it has demonstrated better results than any other clinic I’ve been to. Marina did my first ever facial at CF so I was thrilled to have another appointment with her! I really appreciated the time and care she put into my facial. I love how the extraction process doesn’t cause much redness, so when you are leaving the clinic your face isn’t blotchy or painful.

I’ve been coming to clinica Flore for a few years now and I honestly couldn’t recommended them enough. Always a warm welcome from the team Carly and Marina. The treatment is thoroughly professional and sorts out my chronic rosacea everytime, it’s a 10 out of 10 from me.

Before going in for my HIFU treatment I did some reading about the procedure, particularly about the side effects. One that had me a bit worried was being blotchy and red as I do have sensitive skin. However, Flavio was so gentle that I didn’t experience any redness after the treatment or pain during the procedure. Their staff is so friendly from the minute you call them to book an appointment to them performing the procedure. They update you with every step of the process so that you are aware of what they are doing to your face. I highly recommend their services they have indeed impressed me and I can’t wait for my next appointment with them. #HappyClient

I have been to other clinics and it is the first time the staff has been amazing, they showed they are actually passionate for what they do and they do care for the patients. I am over the moon with the treatments I received, I can say I’ve got incredible results. Definitely going back to Fiore for future treatments, and highly recommend it. Thank you so much Flavio, truly appreciate your commitment!
Great combination of the new and improved HIFU and new skin pen with ultrasound! Both treatments combined have massively improved the skin texture and lifting of facial contours, not even 24 downtime and virtually painless in my case, loved it! Would definitely recommend this combo or even as separate treatments as I did see big improvements on each session! Also the clinic is always at such high standards and always immaculately presented! Thank you, will be back!


What to avoid after fat dissolving injections?

Its best to avoid any exposure to heat including : Sauna , Steam rooms , gym , sunbeds and natural sun bathing for a minimum of 3 days . The area treated will be inflamed and swollen for a minimum of 4 to 7 days , therefore we recommend not to increase your body temperature to avoid extra unnecessary swelling.

We recommend to drink plenty of water during your Fat Injections journey , to held your lymphatic system expel toxins and dead cells . We would like you to drink 2L per day.

The fat cells treated by Aqualyx are theoretically permanently dead. But we can not control your body capability to reproduce new fat cells . It is essential to follow an healthy diet , and to maintain your weight at an healthy number.

You can find Aqualyx treatments at our clinic based in Covent Garden, London. Give us a call today to make your booking!
