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.
