Fat Dissolving Treatments
Those annoying small pockets of fat under your chin, around your thighs, on your tummy or under your bra strap can now be reduced without surgery – thanks to revolutionary fat-dissolving injections.
Aqualyx® is a non-surgical solution to minimise and remove stubborn localised pockets of fat. It is ideal for those who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet but have pockets of fat that won’t shift, even with focused exercise.
How Does Aqualyx Work?
Aqualyx® is made up from a number of different plant-based compounds that have been refined in a lab environment. Aqualyx® dissolves the membranes of fat cells in the treated area. The fat cells become unstable and break open. The fatty acids contained within the cell are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver.
The procedure consists of a set of injections, administered 3-4 weeks apart, whereby Aqualyx® is injected into the targeted area.
What Are the Treatment Results?
Depending on the size of the area treated and the size of the fat pocket. It typically takes 1 – 3 treatments for small areas like the chin, jowls etc. Larger areas such as thighs typically take 2 – 8 treatments. These sessions are spaced at 4 – 6 weeks apart and results show 6 weeks after your initial treatment, which is when you will be asked back for your review with the practitioner.
Your body can regenerate fat cells (new ones) very slowly. The results are good and permanent. However, if you don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle your body will put on weight in other areas of your body where fat cells remain (areas not treated).
This treatment should only be used as a supplement to a healthy lifestyle and is only intended for dealing with small pockets of fat rather than for providing a complete weight loss solution
What are the side effects?
Patients may experience swelling and bruising for around a week post treatment.
Optimum results are achieved when used in combination with skin tightening treatments such as RF or Hifu.
is and injectable solution which liquifies fat cells, it permanently destroys them making the area more sculpted.
The lipids are then released and naturally flushed out by the lymphatic system. It is ideal for small areas like the chin but can be used on small pocket areas of fat on the body too.
Aqualyx® is very versatile and can be injected into almost anywhere with localised fat deposits. Popular areas are stomachs, love handles, hips, tummy’s knees, and chins.
Important: Aqualyx® is a body contouring treatment not a weight loss solution.
