This is an injectable liquid that breaks down stubborn fat deposits. It is a sugar based solution that contains desoxycholan-acid; a bile acid which is made in the liver and helps the digestion of fat. Aqualyx contains this bile acid and its fat dissolving properties are utilised in this treatment
Body fat is liquid at body temperature and this product dissolves the capsule that it is held in. This is then passed out of the body via the lymph system (then urine) over weeks. A healthy diet and exercise aids the effect of this product. It is ideal for stubborn pockets of fat that measure about 3cm to pinch.
The product is injected into the chosen area of fat. This takes about 10 minutes per area. It is not a painful procedure but afterwards the area does become sore and swell for a few days as it ‘bursts the fat cells’. You can return to work straight afterwards however.
AQUALYX DOES NOT CAUSE WEIGHT LOSS. It simply melts the small area injected with the product and tends to firm the area as it works.
The fat cells are permanently destroyed, only if weight gain occurs new fat can develop in these area
- Double chin
- Pre jowl sulcus
- Upper arms
- Arm pits
- Saddle bags
- Fat deposits on buttocks, chest and inner thighs
Aqualyx can also treat the condition called buffalo humps and lipomas
The amount of treatments vary according to the volume of the fat deposit, the desired correction and the individuals response to the treatment. Treatments can be repeated every month. On average 3-5 are needed.
There is no downtime following treatment. You should avoid extreme heat and avoid strenuous exercise for the next seven days.
As the fatty acids that are being released can be used to make additional energy, it is essential to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle or this released fat could potentially be stored elsewhere.
The effects of aqualyx can be further enhanced by the skin tightening effects of our laser treatment
