The most effective non-surgical fat reduction treatment available. Aqualyx is a safe, effective fat dissolving injection treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long lasting results, which means you can banish those frustrating wobbly bits and is very effective for body contouring. Included in the treatment is a free ultrasound cavitation treatment on the targeted area.
The treatment involves injecting Aqualyx into fatty areas of the body with a syringe and cannula, under local anaesthetic, and the whole procedure should take no longer than 60 minutes.
Depending on how much fat is present in the areas being treated will determine whether you need more than one treatment. Upon assessment some people get results with one session to remove a double chin, yet abdominal areas can take 2-4 sessions. Each patient needs an individual assessment to determine how many treatment sessions will be required for each area.
If subsequent treatments are required in most cases you will have to leave 6-8 weeks between treatments. This can be more or less depending on the area(s) being treated.
Aqualyx works by being injected into areas with fat needing lipolysis, and it finds the fat cells specifically, attaches onto them and then causes the building blocks of the fat cells to separate from one another. the triglycerides and free fatty acids are then removed by the body's own macrophages and are eliminated through the lymphatic system, essentially through your urine.
The fat cells that have been destroyed will not come back but patients would need to maintain or lose rather than gain weight between treatment sessions for maximum effect. This is an excellent treatment for those stubborn pockets of fat that you struggle to get rid of through diet and exercise.
As with any cosmetic procedure you'll need to have a thorough consultation to decide if this treatment is right for you. This treatment can be performed on almost all fatty areas of the body, apart from the areas around the eyes. The treatment can follow the consultation on the same day.
