WHAT IS AQUALYX?
Aqualyx Lipotherapy is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. A fat removal therapy which reduces stubborn fat deposits in those difficult areas such as the stomach, outer and inner thighs, and even the chin area.
It works by sticking to fatty deposits, breaking them down over a period of 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:
Important: Aqualyx® is a body contouring treatment not a weight loss solution. Treatments with Aqualyx® are only applicable for small, localized areas. Clients must be within one stone of their recommended body weight to have treatment and be able to pinch about 3cm of fat.
How it works?
The process involves injecting Aqualyx® into the regional deposits of adipose tissue under the skin. Aqualyx® is a water solution consisting of plant polymers and was developed and patented by Professor Dr. Motolese in Italy. It is designed specifically for use in the field of aesthetic medicine. It dissolves the local fat cells into a liquid, where they are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
How many treatments does it take to completely dissolve the fat?
This depends on the individual as well as the area being treated. Just one session will make a difference, but generally between 2-6 treatments will be recommended for full results.
When will I see results?
Results are not instant as it takes a little time for the body to expel the fat cells. You should notice the full effect develop between 4-8 weeks.
Does it hurt?
AQUALYX® can be an uncomfortable especially where larger areas are being treated. However, we will numb the areas before injecting, which significantly reduces any potential discomfort.
What side-effects could I expect?
The most common side-effects after AQUALYX® are localised redness, swelling and bruising. This is due to the inflammatory reaction that AQUALYX® triggers in the fat cells.
Your aesthetic practitioner will explain this fully and also discuss any further concerns based on your medical history in the consultation prior to treatment.
How long is recovery time?
Whilst downtime is minimal, it can take several days to a few weeks for the swelling to subside. You may also bruise which can take up to two weeks to fade. Physical exercise should be avoided for about 4 to 5 days.
Are the results permanent?
Science tells us that once destroyed, those fat cells will not return or be redeveloped. However, it is important to adhere to sensible lifestyle advice i.e. healthy diet and regular exercise. This is so that remaining fat cells do not increase in size.
How many treatments have been done?
Since the product was launched in 2009, over 2,000,000 vials of AQUALYX® have been sold to practitioners treating patients across Europe. This figure is increasing all the time as practitioners and patients realise the benefits of treatment.
Who is AQUALYX® not suitable for?
AQUALYX® is not a suitable treatment during pregnancy or breastfeeding. It is also inappropriate for patients with diabetes, allergies against any of the product’s components, medical history including anaphylactic reactions and/or severe allergies, autoimmune diseases, acute or chronic skin diseases in the affected area, other severe organic diseases and liver/kidney disease.
