What is Aqualyx®?

Aqualyx® is a phosphatidylcholine free solution, which contains Sodium Deoxycholate, an agent whose primary objective is to break down fat cells. It does this by emulsifying the membrance of the adipose cell wall leading to the destruction of the fat cell.  Aqualyx® promoted cellular lysis of the fat cell, resulting in the bodys macrophage system to dispose of the reminants of the broken fat cell, leading to the lympahtic system to drain and clean up the mess.

The final outcome is Permanent removal of the destroyed fat cell, resulting in overall improvement of the treated area.The larger the treated area, the greater the loss of fat cells from that area.

Is Aqualyx ideal for you?

If you are suffering with stubborn pockets of fat, which are unresponsive to normal metabolic processes, such as exercising and maintaining a low calorie diet, then Aqualyx is the perfect treatment for you.

An ideal patient would be someone who is exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy calorie deficit diet and losing fat overall, apart from a few stubborn places, such as the double chin, lower pockets of abdominal fat, hips, buttocks and thighs, then this would be the ideal treatment.

Things to Know

Aqualyx is a virtually painless treatments, but with any medical treatments there are certain factors which need to be considered, and so let us tell you what to expect before, during and after the treatment.

After

After the procedure is done there are some things you need to be aware of.

  • Swelling- After the procedure you will notice swelling in the treated area. This starts off small but within 24-48hours gets larger (as the fat cells are destroyed so take up more space) before eventually being taken away by the lymphatic system and out of the body.
  • Bruise- With any injetion there is always a chance of a bruise, although low, can still happen. I always say a ‘bruise is a bruise‘ and will settle over a few days.
  • Discomfort- With the swelling there can be some pressure discomfort. We advise a simple analgesic, such as paracetamol, to help releive this and as time goes on usually settles.
  • Avoid contact sports- You dont want to trigger the treated area so avoid any contact sports such as Boxing, for at least a week or two.
  • Massage the treated area- This an help alleviate the discomfort and promote absoption. Gently massage twice a day for two weeks.

The Doctor may give you specific instructions, so please make sure to follow them.

And if you experience any discomfort or unusual side effects, please don’t hesitate to contact us right away.

Before

To maximise your outcome and make sure everything goes smoothly, we recommend following these simple guidelines before your session:

  • If you have any health concerns that require medications, please discuss them with us for a safe and personalised treatment.
  • Refrain from smoking for a few days leading up to the procedure.
  • Hold off any skincare o treatments at the treatment site.
  • Avoid alcohol for a minimum of two weeks before the procedure.

During

We apply numbing cream to the area to be treated. For example the Double Chin, we apply numbing cream to the skin prior to treatment. During the treatment small microdroplets of Aqualyx is injected into the area, durectly targeting the fat cells. As the fat cells are treated with aqualyx there is a reaction where the fat cells membrane is broken down. This, in combination with the aqualyx injection, results in localised swelling of the area. This is a Normal response to the injection.

Unsuitable Patients

With all treatments there are some contraindications. For Aqualyx we do not recommend treatments for anyone who has;

-Active or any systemic pathology in the treatment area

-Severe autoimmune disease

-immunocompromised condition

-Pregnancy and breast feeding

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Aqualyx®  is the only drug approved by the European Union for the reduction in localised fat cells.

No. During the treatment, you may experience a tingling or warming sensation, but it is not described as painful. We apply a numbing cream to the treatment area and ensure our experienced doctors provide a soft handed approach whilst injecting your fat cells.

Yes. Once the fat cells have been destroyed and taken up by the lymohatic drainage system, then they will not be coming back. We advise you to avoid gaining weight as this can sometimes mask the results. But as long as you stay the same weight or less then the results will be long lasting.

Some patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, or mild tenderness in the treated area, but these usually subside. Basic analgesia such as paracetamol can help.

The answer is generally No, with correct patient selection. If you have a large area that needs to be treated and already have some loose skin, then we advise for this treatment to e carried out with our skin tightening treatments, such as RF skin tightening endymed. You can find more information about this on our ‘Treatments‘ section under ‘Skin Tightening‘.

No. Aqualyx is designed to treat stubborn pockets of fat, not overall weight loss. For Weight loss Management we suggest looking at our ‘Health and Wellness‘ section under ‘Weight Loss ‘ management page.

Depending on the treatment area size, stubborness, overall patient health, the area to be treated usually requires 1-3 sessions. This depends on personal satisfaction and end goal. Most patients are happy after 1 or 2 sessions, some rarely require 3 sessions who have larger areas of fat or desire more defined results.

Generally, if you are suffering with stubborn pockets of fat, which are unresponsive to normal metabolic processes, such as exercising and maintaining a low calorie diet, then Aqualyx is the perfect treatment for you.
