Aqualyx is one of the most popular and effective fat dissolving procedures that can help people get rid of stubborn fat in areas that are commonly unaffected by overall body weight loss, such as the double chin, the lower part of the face, the thighs, etc.
Aqualyx is made up from natural plant-based compounds and is scientifically developed to break down excess body fat. By dissolving the membranes of fat cells in the injected area, Aqualyx causes fat cells to become unstable and break and finally eliminated by the body’s excretory systems.
Aqualyx is typically injected into the following areas for local fat removal:
Face: double chin, lower 1/3 of the face.
Body: upper arms, armpits, waist, abdomen, buttocks, inner thighs.
Is Aqualyx safe?
Aqualyx is CE marked which means it has been approved as a safe product to use in the EU.
Are you suitable?
If you have exercise-resistant, diet-resistant fat anywhere in your body (except for around the eyes), you may be a candidate for Aqualyx fat dissolving. Our doctor needs to first see you and measure the amount of fat and then make recommendations accordingly.
How many sessions might I need?
1 – 8 sessions may be required depending on the area of the body/face, the amount of fat present and the individual’s own metabolism. In some cases, visible results can be seen after just one session.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the areas of the body/face treated, the procedure can take from 10 minutes up to 30 minutes.
When can you return to normal activities?
Aqualyx injections will cause immediate tissue swelling due to the amount of product being injected (starting from 8mls). Any drastic swelling will subside in 2-3 hours following which mild to moderate swelling can persist up to 1 week. Daily massage is recommended to help the body’s excretory systems eliminate the dissolved fat cells. While the treated area is very swollen, we advise against strenuous exercise and extreme temperatures, e.g. sauna. Once the swelling starts to improve, normal activities can be safely resumed.
When will I see results? When can I have my top-up treatment?
Different areas of the body/face will require different numbers of sessions. The results are most visible 6 weeks following the completion of the required sessions recommended by the doctors. Between each treatment, we recommend a 4-6-week gap.
How long will the results last?
Fortunately, the body is very slow at generating new fat cells, meaning once fat cells are removed, the results are as good as permanent. However, unhealthy lifestyles will push the body to generate more fat cells and deposit more fat in them, therefore we recommend maintaining a healthy weight following the procedure.
