aqualyx fat reduction model sidcup kent

Aqualyx fat dissolving injections are a non-surgical way of shaping the body and face. Aqualyx can reduce fat below the chin and create a defined jawline. The procedure involves multiple injections of an acid that naturally occurs in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected subcutaneously (just below the skin and above the muscle), the acid disrupts the membranes of adipocytes (fat cells) leading to irreversible cell breakdown (adipocytolysis). This process produces some mild, localized swelling which is largely resolved within about 28 days.


The double chin and jowls are the most popular areas to be treated with Aqualyx fat dissolving injections. We can also treat the following areas:

  • Thighs

  • Stomach

  • Hips

  • Saddle Bags

  • Bingo Wings (Arms)

  • Ankles

  • Back (Underneath Bra Strap)

Which areas can be treated?


Both men and women go to great lengths to hide their double chins. Women wear scarves and oversized jewellery and try to camouflage the excess fat by contouring with makeup. Men grow beards and wear turtleneck sweaters. When they take selfies they lift the camera high and edit, edit, edit! So, what is the reason some of us have double chins?


Ageing - Ageing can cause fat to accumulate in the neck creating a double chin
Genetics - It can be part of a client’s DNA, even if they are slim everywhere else.
Weight changes - A double chin can appear when your weight fluctuates. However, diet and exercise may not be enough to remove the fat from a double chin.

In the UK nearly 60% of women say that they are concerned about a double chin. This figure is more than the number of those who are bothered by their forehead lines. About 40% of men are concerned about their chin profile. And the majority of those concerned with their jawline profile are between the ages of 31 and 60.

What causes a double chin?


Double chin injectable treatments are tailored specifically to the needs of each client after a consultation with practitioner at Dani Louise Aesthetics. During consultations, our practitioners evaluate the neck and discuss the client’s medical history to ensure double chin injections are appropriate. For example, a client with very loose neck skin may not be a good candidate for the procedure.

The treatment begins with thoroughly cleansing the neck and below the chin. A therapist then uses a pen to mark a grid of specific injection sites and the practitioner determines the correct dosage for the client. 

Lidocaine is added to the Aqualyx to ease discomfort.

Cliients should avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications or steroids because the inflammatory response may be an important part of treatment success.

How are fat dissolving injections performed?


Clients who undergo double chin injectable treatments report that they are less self-conscious about their appearances and feel more comfortable. The fat cells destroyed during the process are removed from the body and don’t return. Fat can still accumulate in the area, however, but the results should be long-lasting.

There are some common side effects of double chin injections, including:

  • Discomfort

  • Bruising

  • Swelling

  • Redness

  • Numbness

  • Areas of firmness

  • Itching or prickly sensation

You should not massage the injection sites for 72 hours. Because the fat cells die gradually, results may not be visible for up to 6 weeks and may not be visible until after the second or third treatment. Also, skin continues to tighten after treatment even after the swelling subsides.


An appointment should be made for 8 weeks after the treatment for review and follow up treatment.
