So with Aqualyx becoming unlicensed, what does this mean for prospective patients?
We caught up with Dr Vik Gautam, cosmetic doctor in Manchester to ask more about the implications of becoming an unlicensed medication since 2017. “The price may increase, but otherwise nothing else changes. This is a safe medication that can continued to be used on patients after thorough discussion with their doctor”
He continued, “We have found incredible results in removing fat from the double chin and subsequent neck tightening with aqualyx, and currently are participating in a small trial to guage the efficacy of these treatments”
With the current price at £375, we asked if the price might increase in the next few months, he added “I’m not involved with the price, but even if there is a small increase, this treatment will still be the only non surgical option, and will still be good value for money”
Aqualyx fat dissolving injections are offered in four of Dermaskin Clinic branches accross the UK. From double chin, to removing fat from the abdomen, it is best to consult with the doctor to see if this is a potential treatment option.
