Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are a non-surgical solution to minimize and remove stubborn localized pockets of fat.
Do you struggle with stubborn areas of fat, despite regular exercise and a healthy diet?
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are ideal for those who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet but have pockets of fat that won’t shift, even with focused exercise.
This technique, known as Aqualysis or Aquaplasty, consists of injecting the solution into localised fat deposits. Aqualyx consists of phosphatidylcholine – a natural substance which, when given in higher doses, can cause the destruction of fat cells.
Destroying the fat cells is a long-term solution provided you retain a stable weight, eat healthily and continue exercise as usual.
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections lead to a permanent reduction of fatty tissue; once removed, the same fat cells will not reappear.
Important: Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are a body contouring treatment and not a weight loss solution. Treatments with Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are only applicable for small, localised areas.
Clients must be within one stone of their recommended body weight to have treatment and be able to pinch about 3cm of fat.
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can be used on the following areas:
“No matter how much I exercised and watched what I ate I could never shift a small pocket of fat on my stomach! A couple of sessions of Aqualyx has made the world of difference, I’m so pleased with the results and would definitely recommend for others to try it out.” – Richard, Aqualyx Client
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections work by breaking down cell membranes to liquify the fat cell, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
The procedure consists of a set of injections, administered 3-4 weeks apart, whereby Aqualyx is injected into the targeted area.
After a pre-treatment consultation Charmaine will mark out the area of concern. Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are mixed with Lidocaine (anaesthetic) before injection for greater comfort and a number of injections in a fan effect make sure the area if fully covered.
The elastic needles allow small areas to be tackled effectively such as double chin or jowls.
As Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are a non-surgical solution it means that there is no downtime and no general-anaesthetic risks. As there are no incisions, stitches are not required and scarring is very unlikely.
However, there are sometimes some minor temporary side effects which can include: bruising, swelling, redness and irritation in the injection area. Sometimes it may feel a slightly tender to touch, numb or itchy but these side effects usually reside after 1-3 days.
A reduction in fat deposits can be seen after just one treatment, however between three and eight sessions are recommended to achieve desired results.
A reduction in fat in the targeted area can be noted a number of weeks post-treatment.
The speed at which noticeable results are seen will vary depending on the stability of the cell membranes; younger clients are more likely to see results after a longer period.
In very small fat pads, the desired results can already be seen after one treatment.
The results of Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections 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.
However, the procedure is only permanent if you follow a healthy diet and exercise frequently following treatment.
If you regain weight, it is likely that the fat pockets will reappear. If a healthy lifestyle is maintained, the results should be permanent.
