AQUALYX Fat Dissolving As An Overview

Excess fat in stubborn areas can be an issue for many men and women, despite exercise and a good diet. These fatty areas sometimes just don’t want to budge, but the likes of liposuction may seem too extreme a solution. That’s when Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can help!

An alternative to liposuction is Aqualyx: a fat removal therapy which reduces stubborn fat deposits in notoriously tricky areas such as the stomach, outer and inner thighs, and the chin area. Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are a specially-formulated compound solution which is injected by an expertly trained technician into the problem area. It works by attaching to fatty deposits, breaking them down over time. The fat is then naturally dissolved and flushed out by the body. Results are effective, quick, and minimally invasive.

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can be used to treat almost all small deposits of fat, but the most popular treatment areas include the chin, thighs, arms, and stomach.

How Does It Work:

A solution is injected into the localised deposits of tissue into areas which liquefies the fat cell and destroys it permanently. The lipids (contents of the fat cells) are then released and eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.

 

When Will I See Results:

Result times vary, but it's recommended to have between two and five sessions to see a significant effect. Younger patients are more likely to see results after a longer period of time. A review at 4 weeks is pre booked in after each treatment.

Am I Eligable For This Treatment:

You will be required to have a full consultation with Chloe before treatment, but generally this treatment is not suitable for those classed as clinically overweight and those aged under 18 or over 60.

Aqualyx is not suitable if you:

  • Have diabetes.

  • Have liver or kidney disease.

  • Have active skin problem in the area to be treated.

  • Are taking blood thinning medicine e.g warfarin.

 

Are Aqualyx ResultsPerminent:

Whilst the body can regenerate fat cells - the process is very slow. So once fat cells are removed from a localised area your results are as good as permanent. However, if you do not continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle then your body will put on weight in other areas of your body where fat cells remain.

What Is Involved In Treatment Recovery:

Immediately after treatment you may appear red and swollen with some bruising on the treated area. Aqualyx works by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling for 3-5 days. Therefore, if you intend to have a facial treatment, e.g. double chin where the swelling may be obvious, you may wish to organise time away from work or social engagements.

You will be able to reduce the swelling by using a cool pack wrapped in a clean cloth for a maximum of 20 minutes each day.  You cannot use anti-inflammatory tablets for 48 hours after treatment as this will work against the treatment. The treated area may feel tender and firm for up to 8 weeks post treatment.

During recovery we recommend that you avoid:

  • Swimming pools, spas and saunas for 3 days.

  • Physical exercise for 10 days.

  • Any other aesthetic treatments for 2 weeks.

How Do I Know If Aqualyx Is Safe:

Aqualyx was developed by Professor Pasquale Motolese, Vice President of the Italian Society of Aesthetic Surgery and Medicine who presented it at the Aesthetic Medical International Congress in Milan in 2004.

Aqualyx has been given CE approval for use in the UK which means it meets the health and safety standards required by the European Union. Since 2009 Aqualyx has been used in over 2 million treatments in over 49 countries. It has a strong safety record supported by sound medical science.
