Aqualyx Injections for Fat Reduction Treatment | Cosmedocs UK

Aqualyx Fat Reduction

It’s not that easy to get rid of stubborn fatty deposits even with a healthy diet and strict exercise regimen. Even with an ideal weight, obtaining a body shape you are happy with can be challenging due to the appearance of double chins, bingo wings and saddle bags.

Why are some areas of fat so difficult to remove? The reason behind this is often due to our genetics. With weight loss, the fat cells decrease in volume, however they do not decrease in number and will persistently store fat.

Aqualyx™ injections or injection lipolysis can provide the solution for these areas of stubborn body fat. Developed in Italy and launched in 2009, Aqualyx injections were specifically designed to target small areas of fatty deposits with a minimally invasive procedure. Over 2 million procedures have already been carried out in mainland Europe.

Possible Treatment Areas:

  • Abdomen / Hip area
  • Female Upper Breast Fold
  • Inner & Outer Thighs
  • Jowls / Double Chin
  • Saddle bags
  • Upper Arms / Bingo Wings
  • Waist & Back

How does it works?

Once Aqualyx injection is injected, Aqualyx solution dissolves fat cells into fatty acids that are ultimately reabsorbed and excreted out by the body naturally in the weeks following the treatment. It is a synthetically produced analogue of our natural bile acid, which helps to break down the cell walls of the fat cells releasing the content of the fatty acid inside. The body is then able to utilise this fatty acid energy and remove cell residue in its normal way. Destroying the fat cells leads to a long lasting solution provided weight remains stable.

Aqualyx Injection Treatment

The treatment procedure involves a cannula to inject the Aqualyx solution directly into the fatty tissue. A local anaesthetic will help reduce any discomfort. Most individuals are able to tolerate the treatment well with a mild stinging sensation.

Immediately after the procedure, the treated area may appear red and slightly swollen which may last 1-3 days.

Every patient is reviewed at a separate appointment. Another treatment may be performed depending on the amount of fat and the targeted area. Typically, two to five treatments are required with four week intervals.

Benefits of Aqualyx Injections

As an alternative to liposuction, Aqualyx is a non-surgical procedure with less downtime. There is no need for a general anaesthetic, the patient does not require any incisions or stiches. Hence scarring is unlikely to occur. The removal of fat cells provides a long-lasting solution given that the patients continue a healthy lifestyle.

Who should not have Aqualyx Injections

Pregnant or breastfeeding ladies should not have this treatment. Aqualyx injections are unsuitable for treatment around eyes or ankles. Patients with underlying medical conditions, skin diseases in the affected area or with severe allergies may be advised against this treatment. Suitability and other information about Aqualyx will be discussed during a consultation.
