Your introduction to Aqualyx

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections – The new Generation of non-surgical Liposuction

Aqualyx is a safe, effective fat dissolving treatment which is injected into the areas you want to reduce the fat in. This treatment reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long lasting results, which means you can get rid of those frustrating and annoying stubborn wobbly parts!

Aqualyx can be used to treat small areas e.g. under the chin, or exercise resistant pockets of fat or areas like the back, stomach, arms, knees, ankles, hips and thighs. It is very effective for body contouring – but is not a treatment for weight loss.

 What is Aqualyx?

Aqualyx is made up from multiple safe, plant-based compounds that have been checked and perfected in a scientific lab. Aqualyx dissolves the membranes (borders) of the fat cells in the treated area. The fat cells become unstable and break open. The fat contained within the cell are then eliminated by the body.

 Is Aqualyx safe?

Aqualyx was developed by Professor Pasquale Motolese, Vice President of the Italian Society of Aesthetic Surgery and Medicine who presented it at the Aesthetic Medical International Congress in Milan in 2004.

 Can I have Aqualyx?

If you have a healthy lifestyle and are close to your ideal body weight but have some isolated stubborn areas of fat then Aqualyx may be suitable. Popular areas that we treat are double chins, the chest area for men – ‘man boobs’, arms ‘bingo-wings’, thighs, ankles, knees, and the stomach region. For the stomach we can also help to define a more noticeable six pack!

However, if you have significant weight then unfortunately, Aqualyx will not be suitable for you. But ask our team and we can recommend alternatives!

If you have recently lost significant weight, then the area concerning you may be loose skin which we can improve with skin tightening treatments. During the consultation, our Practitioner will determine the correct treatment plan for you.

 Who should not have Aqualyx?

People with diabetes.

People with liver or kidney disease.

People that have active skin conditions on the area that needs to be treated.

People that are taking blood thinning medicine e.g. warfarin, apixaban, rivaroxaban etc.

What can I expect after the treatment?

Common temporary side effects after your treatment and during recovery can include red, swollen and itchy skin.

The treated area may feel tender and firm for up to 8-11 weeks post treatment. Individual results may vary. But this is the Aqualyx getting to work!

Immediately after the treatment, the area that was treated may appear red and swollen with some possible bruising on this treated area. This is normal. Aqualyx works by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling for 3-7 days. Therefore, if you intend to have a fat regions on your face treated, it is advisable to arrange your appointment away from any special events.

What can I do to help reduce swelling?

The redness and swelling is how Aqualyx works, so this is a normal response. However, you can help to reduce the swelling by using a cool pack wrapped in a clean cloth for a maximum of 15-20 minutes each day.  

 What should I not do after treatment?

Do not take anti-inflammatory tablets e.g. Ibuprofen, for 48 hours after treatment as this will work against the treatment.

During recovery we recommend that you avoid:

  • Swimming pools, spas and saunas for 3 days.
  • Physical exercise for 10 days.
  • Any other aesthetic treatments for 2 weeks.

How soon will I see results?

The number of Aqualyx treatments needed, varies for different patients and the area being treated. Typically, 1-3 treatments for small areas, such as the jowls and under the chin.

For larger areas, e.g. stomach, back and thighs, patients will need 2-8 treatments to reach their desired effect.

Treatments are spaced at 6-8 weekly intervals. Your result will show 6 weeks after your final treatment.

 Is Aqualyx permanent?

Whilst the body can regenerate fat cells – the process is very slow. So once fat cells are removed from an area of your body, the results are as good as permanent!

However – you must continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle to maintain your amazing new body and to avoid putting weight on in other areas of your body which were not treated.

Aqualyx has been given CE approval for use in the UK which means it meets the health and safety standards required by the European Union. Since 2009 Aqualyx has been used in over 2 million treatments in over 49 countries. It has a strong safety record supported by sound medical science.
