Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections

Aqualyx™ Injectable Fat Removal

New & exciting product to help target localised areas of fat

Why regular exercise and healthy nourishment do not always work… You pay close attention to a wholesome lifestyle by exercising regularly and eating healthily, yet sometimes that one pad of fat that troubles you most will not go away. The cause for this lies within our genes and the special structure of our fat cells in certain areas of the body. The human body naturally stores fat in order to supply energy in times of need. Fat cells located in the subcutaneous fat tissue are difficult to reduce, as only their contents and overall volume can be altered, but not the fat cells themselves. These particular fat cells cannot be removed and continuously serve as a reliable depot for the body to store fat.

Fat Dissolving Injections – How does Aqualyx™ work?

Aqualyx treatment

Aqualyx™ contains the substance desoxycholan-acid, a secondary bile acid. With the assistance of bacteria our body is able to produce this acid in the liver in order to aid the digestion of fat. The fat-dissolving effect of this acid was first utilised by Professor Pasquale Motolese, the inventor of Aqualyx ™, who was able to develop a synthetic variant. The active substance locks on to the fat cell walls and starts to operate, resulting in the cell wall becoming unstable and releasing the fatty acid that is stored within. Cell residue is removed by the body’s defences and the non-attached fatty acids are metabolised and converted into energy.

Which areas of the body can be treated with Aqualyx ™?

Aqualyx ™ can be administered in many areas over the entire body e.g. double chin, prejowl sulcus, upper arms, arm pits, waist, hips, saddle bags, knees, shackles, augmented fat depots located on buttocks, chest and the inner thighs. Aqualyx™ is also a possible treatment of pseudo-gynecomastia and buffalo humps.

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 fully experience 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™ sharp 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. A local anaesthetic can be added to the solution before injecting to improve patient comfort levels; the treatment is relatively painless with a warm sensation, itching, slight burning, slight oedema and reddening appearance for 1-3 days within the treated area.

The treatment is relatively painless and local anaesthetic can be added to the solution to keep discomfort to a minimum. You will feel a warm sensation, as well as an itching, slight burning, slight oedema and reddening appearance for 1-3 days within the treated area.

Aqualyx achieves these fantastic results with just three to six sessions, at four-week intervals. The number of sessions required depends on the size of the fatty deposit and on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.
