What is Aqualyx?
Aqualyx™ contains desoxycholan-acid, a secondary bile acid, which the body naturally produces itself in the liver 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 defences 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 solution will be injected using a fine and flexible cannula, with minimal injection points (1-4). The area will feel warm and you may experience a slight burning or stinging sensation.
How long will my 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 according to the amount of fat and desired result; on average you will be expected to have 3-5 treatments at 3-4 weekly intervals or longer depending on residual swelling and tenderness.
