Lemon Bottle and Aqualyx: What’s the Difference?

By December 1, 2023January 10th, 2024No Comments

Whilst Aqualyx has been a long favoured fat dissolving product, it has recently faced competition from the new and innovative Lemon Bottle. But what sets these two products apart?

What is a fat dissolver?

Before we get into the differences and similarities of Lemon Bottle and Aqualyx, it’s important that we establish what fat dissolver is and how it works when injected into the body.

A fat dissolver is a non-surgical approach of removing stubborn pockets of fat from various parts of the body. It removes fat cells that are then naturally released by the body and then drained away by the lymphatic system. They are an ideal option for eliminating fat that may be challenging to remove through strict dieting and frequent exercising. It is important to note that they are not recommended as a way to lose weight.

What is Lemon Bottle?

Lemon Bottle is a new and advanced injectable fat dissolver that has been designed to target fat deposits. It contains active, natural ingredients such as lecithin, bromelain and riboflavin that form a potent solution that aim to alter fat metabolism. When it is injected into the fatty deposit areas, it breaks down the fat walls to then break down the fat cells which is then flushed from your body through a natural removal process.

What is Aqualyx?

Aqaulyx is a popular injectable treatment that dissolves pockets of fat that may be difficult to remove, even with consistent exercising and healthy diets. It has a gel-like consistency, that contains deoxycholic acid and is injected into various parts of the body like the chin or hips. It liquefies fat cells that are then released through the body’s natural lymphatic draining system.

What active ingredients are used in Lemon Bottle?

The key active ingredients in Lemon Bottle are lecithin, bromelain and riboflavin which are all either naturally found or produced in the body. Lemon Bottle has combined potent versions of these ingredients so that they are effective in the treatment of dissolving fat cells.

What is lecithin?

Derived from vegetables forms, Lemon Bottle contains zymogenic lecithin to prevent any allergies with patients. In the body, lecithin works to break down unhealthy fats that makes cell membranes stiffen and slow down the fat burning process. It then works to rebuild these membranes, making them more flexible, resulting in a boost of metabolism and elimination of any fat from your belly, hips or thighs or anywhere else fat deposits may reside in your body.

What is bromelain?

Bromelain is a digestive enzyme that is formulated from pineapples. It works by not only stimulating the the production of substances in the body that can combat any pain or swelling but also triggers fat breakdown too.

What is riboflavin?

Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2, plays a vast role in transforming carbohydrates, proteins and fat into energy. It has skin regeneration properties, is an antioxidant and helps stimulate fat metabolism by promoting fat burning.

What active ingredients are used in Aqualyx?

The key ingredient in Aqualyx is deoxycholic acid, a substance that is naturally produced in the stomach to tackle and break down any fat consumed.

Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid that breaks down fat in the body that is then absorbed by the intestines. It disrupts cell membranes and destroys the fat cells within fatty tissues. In Aqualyx, a synthetic formula of deoxycholic acid has been created that functions similar but with more effectiveness than its natural form.

Aqualyx also contains the following ingredients;

  • Buffering chemicals
  • Slow-release sugars
  • Sodium chloride
  • Water

Similarities & Differences

Lemon Bottle and Aqualyx share many similar pros but also have many differences that set them aside. These are:

Minimally invasive

Both: Lemon Bottle and Aqualyx both use a non-surgical, minimally invasive method to dissolve fat in the body. It is a great alternative to methods such as liposuction that involves surgery and going under the knife as well as general anaesthesia.

Boosts metabolism

Lemon Bottle: The ingredients in Lemon Bottle work by also stimulating your body’s natural metabolic processes. This means that it aids in burning calories more efficiently, resulting in higher energy levels and better weight management.

Long lasting results

Both: Aqualyx and Lemon Bottle can both provide long lasting results as when the fat cells are dissolved, they are permanently removed from the body.If you do not maintain a healthy diet and do not exercise frequently then new fat cells can form which will affect the longevity of your results. It’s important to note that new fat cells will form in areas that are untreated.

Stimulates collagen and elasticity

Both: By stimulating natural collagen and elasticity production within the body, you can expect results such as firmer appearing skin, reducing the visibility of cellulite as well as an overall appearance of smoother, younger looking skin.

Treatment areas

Aqualyx: In the last decade, Aqualyx has established itself as a staple for practitioners in the aesthetics industry because it has the capacity to target various areas of the body such as areas like the knees, hips, buttocks and thighs.

Lemon Bottle: Lemon Bottle works efficiently when targeted towards particular issues such as fatty deposits on your back, ‘love handles’ and the chin.

Post Treatment Side Effects

Aqualyx: Clients who have received Aqualyx do often feel some discomfort, swelling and bruising but these side effects should subside within 5 days.

Lemon Bottle: Lemon Bottle has gained popularity due to its ability to cause minimal discomfort during treatment. It does cause certain side effects like redness, but these effects typically diminish within a few days.
