Aqualyx is a fat loss treatment that helps to dissolve stubborn fat deposits simply by injection without the need for surgery. Some stubborn areas of fat remain resistant to regular exercise and a healthy diet.
The body produces desoxycholan-acid; a bile acid which is made in the liver and helps the digestion of fat. Aqualyx contains this bile acid and its fat dissolving properties are utilised in this treatment.
Aqualyx works by locking onto the wall of the fat cell and making it unstable. This releases the content of fatty acid inside. The body then uses up the fatty acid as energy and removes the cell residue in its normal way.
Aqualyx is injected into the subcutaneous fat tissue and is usually painless as the procedure contains a local anaesthetic. The area may be slight red or swollen directly after the treatment and usually settles within 1-2 days
The amount of treatments vary according to the volume of the fat deposit, the desired correction and the individuals response to the treatment.
Treatments are done every 3 weeks and on average 3 to 5 are required. Results are usually visible within this time period
There is no downtime following treatment. You should avoid extreme heat and avoid strenuous exercise for the next seven days. As the fatty acids that are being released are utilised into additional energy it is essential to maintain a healthy diet as alternative fat depots in the body may be used to store the fat.
