Aqualyx is an injectable treatment of cholanic acid sodium salts, a complex solution of a deoxycholic acid solution. This solution is then injected into various parts of your body to help dissolve fat, think of it as a weight loss injection. It’s also considerably less invasive than surgery and offers less downtime, making it a popular option for many.
However, it is important to note that Aqualyx injections are a body contouring treatment and not a weight loss solution. This treatment targets pockets of stubborn fat that fail to shift through exercise alone. Why not book your consultation today?
BENEFITS OF AQUALYX (FAT DISSOLVING INJECTIONS)
• Non-invasive, instant fat removal
• Minimal downtime
• Walk in, walk out treatment
• Results can be seen after just one session
• Can treat a range of areas on the body
• Assists in weight loss, by targeting stubborn areas of fat that won’t shift
HOW DOES AQUALYX DISSOLVE FAT?
So how do these revolutionary fat loss injections work? Aqualyx is injected into the treatment area, and as a result, the cell membranes are broken down in order to liquify the fat cell. We then apply an ultrasound device over the skin’s surface to encourage the movement of the liquids both within and surrounding the fat cells. Your fat cells then begin to expand and break up, releasing the lipids that are then destroyed naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.
WHO ARE THESE WEIGHT LOSS INJECTIONS SUITABLE FOR?
Aqualyx is perfect for patients aged from 18 who do not want the more invasive liposuction and do not have large amounts of fat to remove. It’s ideal for people who maintain a healthy lifestyle, through good eating and regular exercise but have fat that won’t shift, even with targeted exercise. Our experienced practitioners will assess your suitability for this treatment during your consultation so that we can make sure that Aqualyx is the right treatment for you.
WHO IS THE TREATMENT NOT SUITABLE FOR?
It is not suitable for anyone that is pregnant or breastfeeding or for those suffering from lipodystrophy. It is most effective for men and women who have stubborn fat deposits.
It is not suitable for wrinkles and loose skin. Strawberry Lift is the best option to tighten the skin.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Typically, two injection spots are required for each area being treated. Patients report good tolerance of the treatment and an anaesthetic solution is normally added prior to injection for greater comfort. We may also use an ultrasound device in conjunction with the fat loss injections to assist in the movement of the liquids both within and surrounding the fat cells. Your treatment should take 30 minutes per treatment, and you’ll be able to leave the clinic soon after.
FAT DISSOLVING INJECTIONS RESULTS
A reduction in fat deposits can be seen after just one treatment, however, additional sessions are required to see the optimal effect.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The results of an AQUALYX treatment are permanent under the condition of maintaining a constant weight measurement (i.e. assuming you don’t gain weight). Once the freed fatty acids have been processed through the body’s lymphatic system, they don’t reappear.
All results vary depending on numerous factors like weight, weight gain, lifestyle, skin care, water consumption, sun, medication and the ageing process. Speak to your technician regarding maintaining your results.
Please note that all treatments will have a very small number of “non responders”, therefore we cannot guarantee results.
