AQUALYX at our Stirling Clinic
AQUALYX™ was introduced to the market in 2009 and over 2,000,000 vials have been sold in 49 countries
around the world. Today thanks to the special formulation and because it is sold only to healthcare
professionals trained in the specific injection technique, no major side effect has ever been reported.
AQUALYX is an injectable solution, which is biocompatible and biodegradable. It causes the
dissolution of fat cells, after which the body then expels the released fatty acids naturally.
Unlike other injectable fat treatments it has full CE approval for use within the UK.
The solution is injected into the fat through a special sharp cannula using a unique trained technique.
Usually 2 injection spots are required per region with the amount of product used differing according to the
area of fat being treated.
The treatment is permanent as the fat cells are destroyed. As the fat cells are converted into energy, it is important that you keep a strict and healthy diet, and exercise regime during the treatment process. Fat Dissolving Injections does not result in weight loss.
The number of treatments required can vary dependent on the area/amount being treated with as little as 1 or
possibly 2 treatments required up to 8; repeat treatments occur every 4 weeks.
Do not apply cosmetics on to the treatment area following 12 hours and avoid all direct sources of heat and radiation (sunlight, UV-radiation, sauna etc.) Furthermore you should abstain from particularly demanding physical exercise for 7 days. As the this releases fatty acids which are converted into additional energy, it is especially important that you keep a strict and healthy diet, otherwise your body will simply store the fat in an alternative fat depot.
In some cases your Practitioner may add Lidocaine to the solution before injecting to improve patient comfort levels; the treatment is relatively painless with a warm sensation, itching, slight burning, slight oedema and reddening appearance for 1-3 days within the treated area.
