What is AQUALIX ?
Aqualyx is the non-surgical alternative in the treatment of localised adiposity.
Aqualyx® is a compound solution from the deoxycholate family that has been physically modified and, by creating a slow release sugar-based system, the biological half-life is reduced which results in minimal side effects.
The treatment should only be performed by a doctor or surgeon, and specialist training is given to every doctor before they offer Aqualysis™.
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.
What is Aqualyx® used for?
It used for Aqualysis or Aquaplasty treatment to reduce localised, stubborn fat deposits in areas such as the chin, stomach, outer and inner thighs, hips, knees etc.
How quickly will I see results?
A reduction in fat deposits can usually be seen after just one treatment, however between three and eight sessions are required to see the optimal effect. The speed at which results are seen will vary depending on the stability of the cell membranes; younger patients are more likely to results after a longer period. Results may vary from physician to physician and case by age.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
It is suitable for patients who do not want the more invasive liposuction or laser lipo treatments, who do not have large amounts of fat to remove and who are over 18 years and under 60 years of age. The treatment is not suitable for pregnant or lactating women or those with a pathological condition.
Is the treatment suitable for overweight patients as a weight loss method?
No, Aqualyx® and Aqualysis are aimed at reducing stubborn pockets of fat.
What are the side effects?
