WHAT IS AQUALYX?
Aqualyx® is a compound solution from the deoxycholate family that has been physically modified and, by creating a slow release sugar-based system, the biological half-life is reduced which results in minimal side effects. Aqualyx® is an injectable treatment that simply and safely dissolves targeted areas of fat causing concern – double chin, stomach fat, back rolls, muffin tops, side rolls, thighs (inner and outer), back of the neck bar rolls and more). It aids the removal of stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise. It’s a minimally invasive option that patients tolerate well.
These areas can sometimes be hard to shift with diet and exercise alone. That’s where Aqualyx® injections can come in, as they can be used to target and break down the build-up of fatty cells. Once administered, the fat cells are broken down and expelled by normal bodily functions.
Aqualyx® is a body contouring treatment not a weight loss solution. Treatments with Aqualyx® are only applicable for small, localised areas.
Just one session will make a difference but generally between 2-6 treatments will be recommended. The results are not instant as it takes a little time for the body to expel the fat cells. The full effect develops over the following 4-8 weeks.
Aqualysis™ or Aquaplasty™ consists of depositing the solution into localised areas of fat such as saddle bags, thighs, stomachs, chins and knees. It can also be used to treat pseudo-gynocomastia in men.
Aqualyx® liquefies the fat cell, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
Typically, two treatments are required for each area being treated. The treatment will be repeated between two and eight times depending on the number of small pockets of fat tissue to be reduced. The treatment is repeated every three to four weeks. After each treatment patients can expect some swelling, redness and skin irritation and tenderness in the area treated, which will subside after four to six days.
