Sometimes you need a little extra help to get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t shift.
We offer Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections at our clinic in Lancashire to help you achieve the contoured silhouette you’ve always wanted.
What Is Aqualyx Lipotherapy?
Aqualyx fat dissolving injections are a minimally invasive fat removal therapy, which helps to treat specifically targeted areas of stubborn fat deposits.
This safe, highly effective therapy can be used to treat those parts of the body where fat tends to cling on, despite your best efforts.
How Does It Work?
Aqualyx is an injectable compound made from the deoxycholate family of acids. Deoxycholate acid is a naturally occurring enzyme, present in the stomach.
The body uses deoxycholate acid to break down dietary fat in the intestine. When Aqualyx is injected subcutaneously, it destroys stubborn fat deposits in targeted areas by breaking down the fat cells. The fat is then dissolved and the cellular debris is cleared into the lymphatic and circulatory systems by specialized immunologic cells. This is a gradual process, happening over the span of several weeks.
The body naturally metabolises the deoxycholic acid, and excretes it as waste.
What To Expect
This treatment is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise. It is meant to help you achieve a more contoured appearance by eliminating stubborn areas of fat. You will likely see changes after your first treatment, but for maximum results, you will usually require a series of 2-8 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart.
Suitable areas for treatment with Aqualyx fat dissolving injections are:
- Double chin
- Saddle bags
- Inner thighs
- Upper arms
- Pseudo gynecomastia in men
Who is an ideal candidate for Aqualyx?
Fat dissolving injections are most effective for those with good skin elasticity, to ensure there are no areas of sagging after the fat is dissolved. This is usually people aged between 18 and 60 years of age. However, this can vary from person to person; we will assess your suitability for treatment during an initial consultation.
