Aqualyx Injections– Dissolve stubborn pockets of fat
Do you have one area of fat that won’t disappear with regular exercise and healthy eating?
The answer for all of us is probably yes! The cause of this lies with our genetics. The body needs fat to supply energy so we store it in our fat cells. Where these cells are located in our bodies is determined by our genetics. Some of us get lovehandles others get saddlebags. When we loose weight fat cells shrink in size because we are using the energy (fat) stored inside them, but they never disappear completely.
How does Aqualyx work?
AQUALYX contains a naturally occurring bile acid which dissolves fat in our bodies. It acts on the fat cell walls de-stabilising and causing them to collapse. They release their contents which is metabolised for energy and the rest of cell gets mopped up by the bodies defences.
What does a treatment with Aqualyx involve?
Aqualyx is a virtually pain free fat loss treatment. It is a simple injection directly into the subcutaneous fat tissues using a local anaesthetic. A typical appointment for anAqualyx injections or consultation in our London Clinics takes 15 minutes.
Who should have Aqualyx?
Aqualyx injections can improve body contouring by helping to remove stubborn fat pockets that don’t go away despite increased exercise or dieting. They are not used for weight loss.
What areas can be treated with Aqualyx injections?
Aqualyx can be used to treat almost any area with localised fat pockets. The most popular procedure is the double chin removal but jowls, back rolls, saddle bags, ‘bra-roll’, waist, buttocks and abdomen injections are also popular and effective.
What are the Aqualyx side effects?
Aqualyx has no reported long term side effects. You will have some swelling and redness in the treated area which starts to settle after a few days and should be gone within 3 weeks. You will feel some discomfort but this is not usually severe with a little bruising expected.
What is the difference between Aqualyx and Kybella injcetions?
Aqualyx and Kybella are both fat dissolving injections made from a naturally occurring bile acid called deoxycholic acid. The main function of bile acids in the human body is to digest fats and these injections work in a similar way, dissolving fat cells through a process called lipolysis.
