Aqualyx - (Fat Dissolving Injections)
Aqualyx is made up from a number of different plant based compounds that have been refined in a lab environment. Aqualyx dissolves the membranes of fat cells in the treated area. The fat cells become unstable and break open. The fatty acids contained within the cell are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver.
Is Aqualyx suitable for me?
If you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle and are close to your ideal body weight, but have isolated stubborn areas of fat then Aqualyx might be suitable. Popular areas that we treat are double chins, moobs, saddle bags, inner thighs, cankles and abdomen - including defining a six pack.
If you have significant weight then Aqualyx is not suitable for you, but other body contouring treatments we offer maybe. If you have recently lost significant weight then the area concerning you may be loose skin which we can improve with skin tightening treatments.
A consultation at Clinic Visjeune will determine the correct treatment plan for you.
Aqualyx is not suitable if you:
- Have diabetes
- Have liver or kidney disease
- Have active skin problem in the area to be treated
- Are taking blood thinning medicine e.g warfarin
How soon do you see results?
The number of Aqualyx treatments required varies depending on the size of the fatty deposit. Typically 1-3 treatments for small areas, such as the jowls and under the chin, and 2-8 treatments for larger areas such as the thighs. Treatments are spaced at 6 weekly intervals. Your result will show 6 weeks after your final treatment which is when you will have a complimentary review with your practitioner.
Are Aqualyx results 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 on weight in other areas of your body where fat cells remain.
What is involved in treatment recovery?
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 cool 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 up to 8 weeks post treatment.
During recovery we recommend that you avoid:
- Swimming pools, spas and saunas for 3 days
- Physical exercise for 10 days
- Any other aesthetic treatments for 2 weeks
Aqualyx has been given CE approval for use in the UK which means it meets the health and safety standards required by the European Union. Common temporary side effects during recovery are red, swollen and itchy skin.
Aqualux is not suitable for pregnant or breast feeding women. Neither is it suitable for people with some health conditions. Hence a full consultation is required prior to treatment.
