Aqualyx® is a safe, effective fat-dissolving injection treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area.
It produces long-lasting results and desired effects can be achieved in as little as 2 treatments.
Aqualyx® can be used to treat small, exercise-resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring, but unfortunately, is not a treatment for weight loss.
Aqualyx® is made up of a number of different plant-based compounds that have been refined in a lab environment. Once injected, the product dissolves the membranes of fat cells in the treated area. The fat cells become unstable and break open. The fatty acids contained within the cell are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver. In short term, the dissolved fat cells are expelled out of the body through urination which goes completely unnoticed!
Typically 2-3 treatments for small areas, such as the jowls and under the chin is sufficient to see results with treatments spaced in 6 weekly intervals. End results will show 6 weeks post-final treatment which is when a review will be scheduled.
In terms of longevity of results after a course of Aqualyx® treatments, as the fat cells are expelled from the body, effects remain virtually permanent (lifestyle dependent).
Whilst the body can regenerate fat cells- the process is very slow. SO once fat cells are removed from a localised area, the results are as good as permanent. However, if a healthy lifestyle is not maintained, then the body will likely regain fat cells. This will be the only reason for any reversal
It is worth mentioning that 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 so rest assured, it is perfectly safe and an effective method of fat dissolving.
A thorough consultation is carried out before any treatment, to ensure suitability and ensure the correct treatment plan for each client.
