Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Jabs
How many treatments are required?
The amount of treatments varies according to the desired degree of amendment, the dimensions of the fat depot and the individual reactions of the fat tissue. On average you will have to expect around 3 to 5 appointments, with 4-week intervals, until you can actually perceive the results. A treatment with Aqualyx™ does not result in weight loss. Healthy nutrition as well as an exercise regimen are an absolute necessity to ensure success of the treatment.
What does the treatment feel like?
The solution is injected into the fat through a special Aqualyx™ cannula using a unique trained technique. Usually 2 injection spots are required per region with the amount of product used differing according to the area of fat being treated. Lidocaine (a local anaesthetic) can be added to the solution before injecting to improve patient comfort levels. The treatment is relatively painles.
After ther treatmment
A warm sensationmay be felt within the treated area itching, slight burning, oedema, reddening and bruising are all common after effects.
How does Aqualyx™ work?
Aqualyx™ contains desoxycholan-acid, a secondary bile acid. With the assistance of bacteria our body is able to produce this acid itself in the liver in order to aid the digestion of fat. The fat-dissolving effect of this acid was utilised by Prof. Pasquale Motolese. The active substance locks on to the fat cell walls and starts to operate, resulting in the cell wall becoming instable and releasing the fatty acid that is stored within. Cell residue is removed by the body’s defenses and the non-attached fatty acids are metabolised and converted into energy.
Which areas of the body can be treated with Aqualyx™?
Used for the dissolution of fat depots, Aqualyx™ can be administered all over the entire body .e.g. Double chin, upper arm, arm pits, bra back fat, stomach, hips, waist, inner outer thighs- saddlebags, buttocks knees.
