OUR NEWS

We are pleased to introduce a new technic for fat dissolving -

AQUALYX

Aqualyx is an injectable solution which is capable of dissolving stubborn areas of subcutaneous fat resistant to diet and exercise. It contains a substance called desoxychol-acid which is found in bile salts in the human body, where it is responsible for digestion of fat.

WHERE ON THE BODY CAN AQUALYX BE USED?aqualyx-areas

In principle Aqualyx can be injected over the entire body except the area around the eyes. Some areas that are particularly suitable for treatment are shown in the picture.

There are some other interesting uses for Aqualyx:

  • For those people who are regular gym goers but cannot shed the last bit of fat to define a six pack, Aqualyx can be used very successfully to give that definition.
  • For people with lipomas, Aqualyx can be injected into these.
  • For people with a buffalo hump, Aqualyx can be used to reduce the size of this.
  • People with uneven lumps of fat after other treatments such as Vaser or liposuction can have smoothness restored with Aqualyx.

WHICH PATIENTS ARE MOST SUITABLE FOR AQUALYX?

An ideal patient is one who is close to their ideal body weight but has isolated stubborn areas of fat deposition. These can be genetically predetermined and can prove very difficult to get rid of in other ways. You must be able to pinch at least 1.5cm of fat for an area to be suitable for treatment.

Patients who have lost considerable weight often have loose skin rather than significant fat deposits. If we feel this is the case for you then we will suggest Aqualyx is not appropriate for you.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN AN AQUALYX TREATMENT?

Initially we will have a consultation to discuss your areas of concern and to take a thorough medical history. This will also involve weighing you, examining you to make sure treatment is appropriate, and taking some photographs as a record of your starting point.

We will then mark the area of the fat deposit and ask you to look in a mirror and confirm that this is the area that bothers you.

You will then be positioned on the couch in a way that gives best access to the area to be treated. The treatment itself takes anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area we are treating. Usually each area only requires one or two needle insertion points, although we will fan the product in several directions from this one point.
