Aqualyx®, developed for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat under the skin, is an injectable, gel-based aqueous solution, which dissolves fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable.
Aqualyx® works by causing the dissolution of fat cells. The body then expels the released fatty acids naturally.
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.
A reduction in fat deposits can 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.
It is suitable for patients who do not want the more invasive liposuction or lipo-laser 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.
No, Aqualyx® and Aqualysis are aimed at reducing stubborn pockets of fat.
Minimal side effects have been reported globally since its introduction, but patients can expect a little skin irritation, bruising and oedema, which will ease after a few days.
Aqualyx® is the only product available for Aqualysis with a registered medical CE mark.
