Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections
Injectable Fat Removal
- Targets stubborn fat
- Treats many areas of the body
- No scarring, minimal downtime
Aqualyx is a unique and revolutionary non-surgical medical treatment. It is designed to destroy unwanted fat cells with the minimum possible intervention in the body. Aqualyx is famous for treating areas of fat that sometimes not even regular exercise can eliminate.
It is administered by our medical director, Dr Weber who has successfully treated thousands of patients in our Richmond clinic.
Aqualyx fat dissolving injections are effective for the following areas where fat tends to be more stubborn: the chin, jowls, upper arms, armpits, waist, hips, saddlebags, behind the neck (buffalo humps), chest (pseudo-gynecomastia), above the knees and the inner thighs. It is particularly effective in those areas because it is administered via injection, it can therefore reach areas similar treatments cannot.
Aqualyx uses an ingredient called deoxycholic acid, a secondary bile acid. This acid destroys fat cells. The fat cell residue is then removed from the body by metabolism, converting the fatty acids to energy to reduce the targeted excess fat. A treatment with Aqualyx does not result in weight loss, it instead minimises localised areas of stubborn fat.
Three to five appointments are recommended, with 4-week intervals for successful results alongside a healthy and balanced diet and exercise.
The treatment begins with a consultation with our Medical Director, Dr Weber, for a face to face assessment of the treatment area to devise the best plan of action including pre and post care for optimal results. Using a long, fine needle Aqualyx is injected directly into the subcutaneous fat tissue, which has no pain receptors facilitating comfortable treatment. The amount of treatments varies according to the dimensions of the fat deposit and the individual reactions of the fat tissue. On average you will expect to have around 2-4 appointments, with 4-week intervals.
Although treatment itself is minimally uncomfortable the treatment site will feel tender, swollen, itchy and maybe red/bruising post treatment. This is normal and expected. Patients can take pain killers to assist with downtime.
To safely destroy stubborn fat you will need between 2-4 treatments of Aqualyx.
Results are gradual and cumulative. You will notice improvement over a number of months and from the moment swelling had subsided. Exercise and lymphatic massage will aid results, as will good hydration.
