AQUALYX

Aqualyx is a safe and effective injectable solution that dissolves small pockets of unwanted fat.

The fat cells are liquefied and permanently destroyed and the lipids are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system. This process happens over a few weeks (4weeks), so results may not be immediately visible. 

Aqualyx® injections are very effective for face and body sculpting and are ideal for clients who favour minimally invasive treatments.

The number of treatments required ranges from one to eight, with intervals of four weeks. It is always recommended to have at least 3 sessions.

Before you go ahead with your treatment a thorough consultation is implicated to rule that there are no contraindications. After your consultation and consent forms are signed we will carry out the treatment starting by sterilising the area , marking out the area and then injecting the area. once your treatment is complete you will receive aftercare information and keep in touch with us for any queries or concerns.

Aqualyx® can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Double chin

  • Prejowl sulcus – a drooping of flesh, forming the ‘sides’ of a double chin

  • Inner thighs

  • Buttocks

  • Upper arms

  • Armpits/ bra strap

  • Waist

  • Hips

  • Saddlebags

  • Knees

  • back

This treatment has 0-no downtime. for the first 3-4 days you may experience some discomfort and soreness.

DOES AQUALYX HURT?

The Aqualyx is mixed with Local Anaesthetic (Lidocaine) to make the treatment more comfortable.  Most clients describe the treatment not painful but a little uncomfortable. The injection itself feels more like a scratch.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

The amount of sessions you will need will depend upon the size of the area being treated. I always recommend my clients a basic of 3 sessions to get great results however some clients are happy with just 1-2 sessions , whereas, others may need more from 3-8 sessions.

The larger the area the more sessions you will need.

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS YOU NEED TO FOLLOW?

  • Drink plenty of water 

  • Massage the treated area every 2 hours for 2 weeks 

  • Maintain a healthy diet - low on fat foods

  • avoid exercise for at least 24 hours 

  • Recommend to wear a pressure garment 

  • Avoid exposure to hot temperatures e.g. shower, saunas, steam room.

  • Avoid perfumed creams, lotions, shower gel, makeup  on the treated area for 24hours.

  • Avoid taking any blood thinning medication like aspirin or ibuprofen however you can take paracetamol.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

You will start to see results anywhere between 3-6 weeks and can notice ongoing improvements up to 6 months.

ARE THE RESULTS OF AQUALYX PERMANENT?

once the fat cells are dissolved by the Aqualyx they are permanently eliminated from the body. The only way you gain fat cells is by creating new ones through unhealthy diet.
