For fat dissolving treatments we focus primarily on Aqualyx (link to main page), this the gold standard of fat dissolving treatments. It is an approved procedure and one that can only be administered by specially trained doctors, thus ensuring the highest standards are adhered to.
Fat-dissolving treatments can address deposits of fat in specific areas, they are a superb treatment for those who are in good overall health but have an annoying buildup of fat in one or more areas.
In this page we will outline key details relating to Aqualyx and fat dissolving treatments
What Can Fat Dissolvers Treat?
Fat dissolving is not a treatment for overall obesity, it is also not a treatment to remove large quantities of fat, nor one for weight control.
Instead, it is for the many people who are in good overall health but just have those annoying pockets of fat that won’t shift.
So many people suffer from this – we are all prone to it. We all have areas where the body seems to steadfastly retain fat, however much we exercise and however good our diet.
Good diet and exercise are of course to be encouraged for everyone, but they won’t always address these far build-ups, or at least not quickly.
Fat dissolving does address them, it specifically targets the fat in the areas that are of concern.
If you have fat on your thighs, or chin, or back, or other area and want it to be removed than fat dissolving, and specifically Aqualyx, may be the best option.
Areas Fat Dissolving Can Address
Fat dissolving is suitable for many areas on the body – essentially anywhere that a person might have stubborn pockets of fat.
The following list is not definitive, but common areas addressed include:
In broad terms, this will be a suitable treatment for those who are in good overall health but have a fat deposit or deposits that they wish to be targeted.
It is only ever administered by a trained doctor and so your full medical history would be taken into consideration and so suitability ascertained – if fat dissolving is not suitable then alternatives may be considered such as fat freezing or liposuction.
Fat dissolving treatments are usually used on those in the age range of 18 to 60-years-old.
Suitability would be determined at a detailed initial consultation, in Dr. Nyla’s case this would be at her Harley Street clinic.
Fat dissolving is superb at tackling the deposit in the location targeted. Over the course of a number of treatments – it is usual to have several sessions – much of the fat can be removed leading to a profound visible improvement.
The results are best determined by looking at before and after images – please head to our main Aqualyx treatment page to see our before and after gallery.
Results do not appear immediately, instead it takes time for the fat to be destroyed and then naturally expelled.
Are Results Permanent
The results will stay so long as the person who undergoes treatment maintains a relatively healthy lifestyle – as with any such treatment it is not a magic bullet. The fat is gone, but it will only stay off if a good diet is maintained.
We find that most people, with the new-found motivation of their improved figure, are able to retain the results.
Other Treatment Options
There are other treatments available to address fat build-up, these include fat freezing (Coolsculpting) and LIPOcel.
If you choose a clinic such as Dr. Nyla’s where multiple treatment options are available then the practitioner will be able to advise as to the best course of action in your specific case.
In London, there are a relatively small number of practitioners qualified to administer this treatment.
It can only be offered by doctors who are registered and specially trained.
Please never consider having fat dissolving treatment, or other treatment, from anyone without full credentials. They may appear to be cheaper, but you would be paying for an amateur to inject compounds into your body.

Doctor Nyla’s London clinic is located on Harley Street in central London.
Harley Street is so named after a famous resident, Thomas Harley, Lord Mayor of London in 1767. The street then became established as a home of medical excellence from the 19th century.
One famous former resident is Lionel Logue, the speech therapist who helped King George VI – and the basis of the film The King’s Speech. He had offices at 146 Harley Street.
Harley Street has also featured prominently in book and film, including Sense and Sensibility and many Agatha Christie novels.
