Fat Dissolve Injections
What is Aqualyx?
Aqualyx™ contains desoxycholan-acid, which the body naturally produces to aid the digestion of fat. The injectable solution is synthesised to dissolve topical fat upon injection into the localised area.
How does it work?
The human body naturally stores fat to supply energy and subcutaneous fat cells are difficult to diminish. The active substance in Aqualyx locks into the cell wall making it unstable and releasing the fatty acid that is stored within it. Cell residue is removed and broken down by the body’s defenses and the released fatty acids are converted to energy.
What will Aqualyx treatment feel like?
The treatment area will be cleaned and topical anaesthetic may be applied for comfort.
The area will be measured and mapped for optimum results. The solution will be
injected using a fine needle, the area will feel warm and you may experience a slight
burning or stinging sensation. Aqualyx can be mixed with a local anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable.
How long do results last?
By following a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and healthy living the fat should
not return in that area.
How many treatments will I need?
Number of treatments varies from person to person and according to the amount of fat and desired result, around 2-4 treatments at 4 weekly intervals may be required.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Under Bra Area
