Aqualyx Fat Dissolving

Target stubborn areas of fat

Fat Dissolving Injections

From saddle bags to love handles, baby bulge to double chins – there are some areas where fat seems impossible to shift despite your best attempts with diet and exercise. At Retreat Clinic, we understand how frustrating this can be and are committed to bringing you innovative and advanced treatments to target these concerns. Fat Dissolving Injections are a very effective solution to remove unwanted, stubborn fat.

The Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Treatment is injected directly into stubborn areas where it liquefies fat cells. The fat cells are completely dissolved and leave the body through your lymphatic system. Fat dissolving injections are far less invasive than surgical procedures. Our highly-experienced doctors have carried out hundreds of successful Aqualyx treatments to help patients love their shape and feel great.*

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving is generally done as a course of treatments. Each treatment will contain a number of injections distributed over the treatment area. Number of treatments required and number of injections done in each treatment depends on amount of fat to be dissolved in the treatment area.

An in-depth consultation with our doctor is required. Based on your concerns & expectations, a treatment plan is developed to target unwanted fat and give you results you have always wanted.
