Aqualyx Fat Dissolving
What are Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections?
Aqualyx Fat dissolving injections are the market leading safest & most effective way to eliminate stubborn fatty deposits. They are especially effective in areas where smaller fat deposits collect. These problem zones usually affect the abdomen, chins, upper arms or upper legs (saddlebags), and are often impossible to shift even with a healthy diet and exercise.
The injections are suited for tackling smaller, medium or large fat deposits. A combination of active ingredients is injected into the skin. Results are visible and fully achieved after a few weeks. For best results, these injections may need to be repeated approximately three times, at intervals of 4 to 10 weeks.
However, to smaller areas of the face such as the chin, jowls & jawline one treatment normally eradicates excess fat, ,making this an exceptionally effective, minimally invasive treatment.
Which Area’s can be treated?
Aqualyx fat dissolving injections achieve good results in the following body zones:
- Chin (double chin)
- Jowls & Jawline
- Hips (love handles)
- Stomach (abdominal area)
- Thighs (saddlebags)
- Upper arms (arm toning)
- Pseudo gynecomastia (male breasts)
Are the effects Permanent
Whilst the body can regenerate fat cells – the process is very slow. So once fat cells are removed from a localised area your results are as good as permanent. However, if you do not continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle then your body will put in weight in other areas if your body where fat cells remain.
Potential side effects
Side effects are usually minimal and most commonly related to the injection procedure such as mild swelling and redness, occasionally bruising will occur. Other side effects will depend on the exact site of injection and we will discuss this further with you prior to any treatments.
Post treatment advice
To maximize the effectiveness of the injections in the treated area:
Immediately after treatment you may appear red and swollen with some bruising on the treated area. Aqualyx works by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling for 3-5 days. Therefore, if you intend to have a facial treatment, e.g. double chin where the swelling may be obvious, you may wish to organise time away from work or social engagements.
You will be able to reduce the swelling by using a coil pack wrapped in a clean cloth for a maximum of 20 minutes each day. You cannot use anti-inflammatory tablets for 48 hours after treatment as this will work against the treatment. The treated area may feel tender and firm for upto 8 weeks post treatment.
Refrain from touching the injected area and stay upright for 4 hours post treatment. Avoid applying make up for to 12 hours. Avoid vigorous exercise or alcohol for 24 hours after treatment and any facials for up to 72 hours. Avoid extreme sun exposure, UV light, freezing temperatures and sauna/steam rooms / jacuzzis for 2 weeks after treatment.
