Aqualyx® Fat Reduction
Aqualyx® is an injectable solution which dissolves stubborn areas of subcutaneous fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It contains a substance called deoxycholic-acid which is found in bile salts in the human body, where it is responsible for digestion of fat.
Aqualyx® is injected into the unwanted area of fat, where it liquefies the fat cell, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
Aqualyx® can be used in conjunction with an ultrasound device to assist in the dissipation of Aqualyx® throughout the localised fat cells.
Aqualyx® treatment should only be performed by a doctor or surgeon. Specially designed long flexible cannulas are used, and specialist training is given to every doctor before they offer Aqualyx®.
It is used to reduce localised, stubborn fat deposits in areas such as the chin, stomach, outer and inner thighs, hips, knees etc.
Typically, two injection spots are required for each area being treated; treatment is well tolerated by most patients and an anaesthetic solution is normally added prior to injection for greater comfort.
A reduction in fat deposits can be seen in the weeks following your first treatment. Two to three sessions are required to see the optimal effect. The speed at which results are seen will vary depending on the stability of your cell membranes; younger patients are more likely to see results after a longer period.
Aqualyx® is suitable for those who do not want the more invasive liposuction or laser lipo treatments, who do not have large amounts of fat to remove and who are over 18 years and under 60 years of age. The treatment is not suitable for pregnant or lactating women or those with a pathological condition.
No, Aqualyx® is for reducing stubborn pockets of fat.
The procedure is very safe and complications are rare. You can expect skin irritation, bruising and swelling immediately after treatment, which will ease after a few days. Non-permanent nerve irritation is a known possible side effect.
When used by a doctor or surgeon to treat small areas of stubborn fat in a person who is suitable for treatment, the treatment is very safe.
Doctor Montero and Doctor Novoa, have undergone specialist training in the procedure and have the practical experience required to deliver the treatment safely, effectively and with minimal side effects.
Aqualyx® is the only product available for injectable lipolysis with a registered medical CE mark.
