What Aqualyx?

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 cells are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body's immune system) and the liver.

How does it work?

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 annoying wobbly bits. Aqualyx can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.

How soon will I 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 thighs. Treatments are spaced at 6 weekly intervals. Your results will show 6 weeks after your final treatment which is when you will have a complimentary review with your practitioner.

Recovery Process

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, eg double chin where the swelling maybe 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  maximum of 20 minutes each day. You cannot use anti-inflammatory tablets for 48 hours after treatment, as this will wok against the treatment. The treated area may feel tender and firm for up to 8 weeks post treatment.

What to avoid

During recovery we recommend that you avoid:* Swimming pools, spas and saunas for 3 days
* Physical activity for 10 days
* Any other aesthetic treatments for 14 days
