Aqualyx - Fat Dissolving Injections
Excess fat in stubborn areas can be an issue for many men and women, despite exercise and a good diet. These fatty areas sometimes just don’t want to budge, but the likes of liposuction may seem too extreme a solution. That’s when Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can help!
An alternative to liposuction is Aqualyx Lipotherapy: a fat removal therapy which reduces stubborn fat deposits in notoriously tricky areas such as the stomach, outer and inner thighs, and the chin area. Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are a specially-formulated compound solution which is injected by our expertly trained advanced practitioner into the problem area. It works by attaching to fatty deposits, breaking them down over time. The fat is then naturally dissolved and flushed out by the body. Results are effective, quick, and minimally invasive.
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can be used to treat almost all small deposits of fat, but the most popular treatment areas include the chin, thighs, arms, and stomach.
Why is this treatment a great alternative to lipsuction?
It's effective and minimally invasive, unlike liposuction which requires invasive surgery, general anaesthetic and significant downtime after treatment.
When will I start to the see the results?
Results are fast but it's recommended to have between two and five sessions to see a significant effect. Younger patients are more likely to see results after a longer period of time.
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 some swelling for 2 - 4 days in some cases. Therefore, if you intend to have a facial treatment, e.g. double chin where the swelling may be obvious, you may wish to organise your appointment in the morning before going to work the following day 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 post treatment until settled.
