Aqualyx is a compound developed by an aesthetic surgeon, and has been available since 2009, the treatment is carried out throughout the world. The solution is a compound which has been modified creating a slow release sugar based system, which minimises side effects. The technique of Aqualysis or Aquaplasty consists of depositing a solution via injection into localised areas of fat areas suitable for treatment
- Saddle Bags
- Under Chin
Aqualyx® liquefies the fat cell, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids which are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
Typically, two treatments are required for each area being treated; patients report good tolerance of the treatment. The treatment will be repeated between two and eight times depending on the number of small pockets of fat tissue to be reduced. The treatment is repeated every three to four weeks.
After each treatment patients can expect some swelling, redness and skin irritation and tenderness in the area treated, which will subside after four to six days.
Contraindications: pregnancy and lactation, liposdystrophy, pathological conditions and for those under 18 years or over 60 years.
