Fat Dissolving Injections

Recently, at Iconstyle a client had a complimentary consultation and expressed her concerns about fat dissolving injections sounding too good to be true? We are going to share with you exactly how we educated our client on the benefits, risks and results of fat dissolving injections, and provided her with lots of information and before and after pictures so she can make an informed decision.

Firstly, fat dissolving injections are a safe treatment that can help eliminate unwanted fat. The wobbly bits that will not go despite healthy eating and regular exercise. The injections are made from a plant compound solution that features deoxycholic acid, a bile acid that plays an essential role in fat digestion. When injected, the treatment destabilise your fat cells by destroying the fat cell membranes. This causes them to liquify, where they are removed by your lymphatic system.

How long do fat dissolving injections last?

To achieve optimum results from fat dissolving, multiple sessions could be required, depending on the surface area. Once the fat cells have been removed…it's gone for good. It's important to follow a healthy eating regime to maintain the results. If you are following a poor diet, the existing fat cells can still increase in size.

What are the risks of fat dissolving injections?

As with any cosmetic treatment, there are a few side effects to be aware of. The most common being swelling. Fat dissolving injections eliminate fat by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells, which will naturally result in redness, swelling or bruising. It's completely normal for skin to stay swollen for 3-5 days after the injection, and may even feel tender for a few weeks after.

Do fat injections work on the stomach?

Yes. Fat dissolving injections are commonly used on the stomach, as fat is prominently stored around this area (especially in women). Fat dissolving injections can be used on the abdomen, arms, thighs and chin. It's important for clients to have a consultation before having the treatment to ensure they would be a suitable candidate.

Do you lose weight after fat dissolving injections?

Fat dissolving injection is not a weight loss treatment. Fat dissolving injections just eliminate unwanted fat that is present. To ensure the best results are achieved a healthy diet and exercise should be maintained whilst having the treatment.

Do fat dissolving injections leave loose skin?

Fat dissolving injections are meant for stubborn small-medium pockets of fat that just will not shift despite a healthy diet and exercise. If a client had a large surface area of fat they wanted to target, focusing on weight loss first would be the best option. If a client had too much excess skin then surgery would achieve a better result. It is a must that clients should have a consultation with an aesthetics doctor to see what results can be achieved.

As the industry continues to shift, staying informed about the latest products and techniques is essential for practitioners who strive to offer the best possible care to their clients, especially when it comes to fat dissolving products. Two prominent fat-dissolving products , Lemon Bottle and Aqualyx, have recently gained attention with the rise in popularity of fat dissolvers in the industry. In this comprehensive guide, we'll dissect the differences between these two treatments, enabling aesthetic practitioners to make informed choices based on their patients' unique needs.

The Basics of Fat Dissolving Products

Before we dive into this comparison, let's briefly review what fat dissolvers are and how they work. Whilst they are not recommended as a means of weight loss, these minimally invasive treatments are designed to target and eliminate localised fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. They typically contain active ingredients that break down fat cells, which are then naturally metabolised and eliminated by the body.

Lemon Bottle Fat Dissolving

Lemon Bottle is now available as part of our fat dissolvers range and has gained recognition recently for its efficacy in reducing submental fat.

Active Ingredient: Lecithin, Bromeliad & Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)


  • Unique Formulation: Unlike most other fat dissolvers on the market, Lemon Bottle is formulated with a unique blend of ingredients for enhanced fat cell response including Riboflavin, Lecithin and Bromeliad.

  • Versatile Treatment Protocol: Lemon Bottle is popular among practitioners for its versatility and efficacy. Lemon Bottle can be used all over the body and the chin, with amazing results for reducing submental fat, often referred to as the "double chin."

  • Pain Free: Lemon Bottle has been reported to be one of the least painful fat dissolving solutions on the market with minimal downtime and no swelling post-treatment.

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving

Aqualyx is a gel-based solution and an industry-favourite for reducing fat on the body. Whilst it is not regarded as a solution for weight loss, it has shown efficacy for treating stubborn areas of fat.

Active Ingredient: Deoxycholic Acid


  • CE-Marked: Aqualyx has been around for over 10 years and is registered with the medical CE mark.

  • Versatile Usage: Aqualyx is known for its versatility, as it can be used to treat fat deposits in various body areas, including the chin, abdomen, thighs, and knees.

  • Multiple Sessions: Like Lemon Bottle, Aqualyx usually requires multiple treatment sessions for optimal results.

Key Differences: Lemon Bottle vs. Aqualyx

Target Areas:

  • Lemon Bottle: Works best on more targeted treatment areas including the "double chin", jowls, back fat and love handles.

  • Aqualyx: Known for its versatility, suitable for treating fat deposits in multiple body areas.


  • Lemon Bottle: Lemon Bottle offers a more budget-friendly option compared to Aqualyx. While its prices are lower, each box contains 5x10ml vials, which can also be bought individually. This makes Lemon Bottle 67% less costly than Aqualyx.

  • Aqualyx: Aqualyx is slightly pricier, but a single box provides 10x8ml vials. Despite the fact that Lemon Bottle is 67% cheaper than an Aqualyx box, you receive 46% more product in each box.

Treatment Experience:

  • Aqualyx: Patients may experience some discomfort and swelling post-treatment.

  • Lemon Bottle: Known for minimal discomfort and downtime, making it a preferred choice for some patients.

Number of Sessions:

  • Lemon Bottle: Multiple sessions are typically required for the best outcome.

  • Aqualyx: Also generally involves multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.

Choosing the Right Treatment

Ultimately, the choice between Lemon Bottle and Aqualyx should be based on several factors, including the patient's specific goals, the area of the body being treated, and the patient's tolerance for potential side effects. Both products have their merits, and your expertise as an aesthetic practitioner will play a crucial role in guiding your patients towards the most suitable option.
