Aqualyx® is a non-surgical solution to minimize and remove stubborn localized pockets of fat. It is ideal for those who exercise regularly and
maintain a healthy diet but have pockets of fat that won’t shift, even withfocused 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® leads to a
permanent reduction of fatty tissue; once removed, fat cells will not reappear. Important: Aqualyx® is a body contouring treatment not a weight loss solution. Treatments with Aqualyx® are only applicable for small, localized 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® can be used on the following areas:
Stomach (inc. six pack definition)
Flanks and waist
Inner and outer thighs
Underarms and armpits
How does Aqualyx® work
Aqualyx® works 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.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As Aqualyx® a non-surgical solution it means no downtime and no general Anaesthetic risks. As there are no incisions, stitches are not required and
scarring is very unlikely. There are some temporary side effects, which 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.
How Many Treatments Would I Need?
A reduction in fat deposits can be seen after just one treatment, however three sessions are recommended to achieve desired results.
What Results Can I Expect To See?
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.
