Aqualyx is a non-surgical fat dissolving injection treatment. The procedure uses a solution of deoxycholic acid to safely and effectively eliminate small, stubborn pockets of fat which resist diet and exercise.
How does it work?
Aqualyx is an injectable solution which liquefies fat cells, destroying them for good. The lipids are then released and eliminated naturally by the lymphatic system. Quick, convenient and minimally invasive.
Areas commonly treated with Aqualyx:
- Double chin
- “Love handles”
- Smaller pockets of stubborn fat
How many treatments do I need?
1-2 treatment is usually enough to see a reduction in fat. Ultimately, the number of Aqualyx treatments needed varies depending on the size of area being treated and the volume of fat.
How long before I see the results?
Most people see their full results in 8-9 weeks. The speed at which your full results become apparent varies depending on the stability of your cell membranes, with younger patients more likely to see continued results over time.
Is it painful?
There is some discomfort with this treatment but numbing cream and local anaesthetic is used to minimise discomfort.
What is the down time?
A small proportion of patients report temporary numbness for a few weeks after treatment. Some patients feel a warm sensation in the treated area and may experience bruising, swelling and soreness. Small numbers report itching, redness and a burning sensation. All patients must be aware that there will be 6 to 9 days of swelling and social downtime.
Who can have Aqualyx treatment?
If you are a healthy weight with a small amount of fat you wish to remove, are between 21-60 years old and you are not pregnant or lactating, then Aqualyx could be right for you. It’s important to note that while Aqualyx does have skin tightening properties, a small number of patients with excessive laxity may not be suitable for the treatment.
