AQUALYX FAT DISSOLVING INJECTIONS
Aqualyx is a safe, effective fat dissolving injection treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long-lasting results, which means you can banish those unwanted areas of stubborn fat.
Aqualyx can be used to treat small, exercise-resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen and thighs. It is beneficial for body contouring and skin tightening, but it is not the recommended treatment for weight loss. At Azimzadeh Aesthetics, we have had the highest levels of training in this procedure from expert Professor Almeda with 20 years of experience in fat dissolving injections.
1) The doctor will clean the area and apply numbing cream – we allow 15 minutes for this to work. The cream is wiped off, and a grid-like area will be marked out on the skin with a pen.
2) Small injections will be administered into the fat layer of the skin. These are generally minimally painful. Up to 10 small doses may be put into the fatty area under the chin. For large body parts, a large cannula will be placed in the area to disperse the treatment. This minimises bruising, discomfort and swelling.
The whole process will take 30 minutes, and you can return to normal activities straight away. If the double chin area is treated, swelling will start almost immediately. You can return to your normal activities once you feel ready, but the area may feel tender for up to 2 weeks. We advise no strenuous exercises for seven days to allow the treatment to settle in. If you have the double chin treated we would also suggest you pick a time where you can avoid social events for seven days. You can wear a scarf or turtle-neck jumper to hide the swelling until it settles.
How does it work?
Aqualyx is made from several different plant-based compounds – the active component is found naturally occurring in the human body. The product is a solution of deoxycholic acid which emulsifies fats. It dissolves the membranes of fat cells in the treated area.
Once the fat cells become unstable, they break down, and the body’s immune system then eliminates the fatty acids via the lymphatic system and liver. Unlike liposuction, the treatment will also cause skin tightening in the area, so you are less likely to end up with loose skin and it should feeling more contoured and toned.
Aqulayx will break down subcutaneous fat over a month and in most cases starts to work straight away once the product is injected. The human body has fatty deposits in areas like the abdomen and thighs to supply energy in times of need. However, due to a genetical predisposition, some fatty deposits cannot be broken down by diet and exercise alone, and the weight cannot be shifted. This leaves small rolls of unsightly fat in certain areas in the body.
If you are struggling with these pockets of fat Aqualyx injections can be very effective at reducing them while creating body sculpting and contouring. If you are concerned about the downtime and pain of traditional fat reduction surgery like liposuction, then Aqualyx could be an excellent treatment for you.
