WHAT IS AQUALYX ?
Aqualyx therapy is a fat dissolving injection treatment that gives a safe and effective permanent reduction of fat.
It is ideally used in those hard to target problem areas, where there are small pockets of fat despite a healthy lifestyle.
It is generally seen as a second choice to Liposuction and Coolsculpting.
WHICH AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH AQUALYX?
Used for the dissolution of fat depots, AQUALYXTM can be administered all over the entire Body.
The most popular areas are
- WAIST AND LOVE HANDLES
- UPPER ARMS
- HIPS AND THIGHS
- SADDLE BAGS
- DOUBLE CHIN
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT AQUALYX?
Dr Wong will answer all your questions during a personal consultation and consider whether a treatment with AQUALYXTM is advisable.
COST from £150 per area £50.00 DEPOSIT / CONSULTATION CHARGE AND IS REEDEMABLE AGAINST THE 1st TREATMENT.
HOW MANY TREAMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments varies according to the dimensions of the fat depot and your reactions.
On average you would expect 3 to 5 appointments, with 3 week intervals. Results should be apparent between treatments.
A treatment with AQUALYXTM does not result in weight loss. Healthy nutrition as well as an exercise regimen are an absolute necessity to ensure success of the treatment.
HOW IS THE TREATMENT WITH AQUALYX CONDUCTED?
Using thin, flexible cannulas, AQUALYXTM is injected directly into the subcutaneous fat tissue. The treatment is virtually pain free, as fat tissue is almost free of sentience and AQUALYXTM contains an additional local anaesthetic.
Immediately after the injection the affected area may redden and swell to a slight degree. As with any treatment with a hypodermic needle, minor haematoma might develop. All these are expected side effects that abate within a couple of days after the treatment.
HOW DOES AQUALYX WORK?
AQUALYXTM contains desoxycholan-acid, a secondary bile acid. With the assistance of bacteria our body is able to produce this acid itself in the liver in order to aid the digestion of fat.
The fat-dissolving effect of this acid was utilised by Prof. Pasquale Motolese, the inventor of AQUALYXTM, who developed a synthetically manufactured variant.
The active substance locks on to the fat cell walls and starts to operate, resulting in the cell wall becoming instable and releasing the fatty acid that is stored within.
Cell residue is removed by the body’s defences and the non-attached fatty acids are metabolised and converted into energy.
WHAT SHOULD I PAY ATTENTION TO AFTER TREATMENT WITH AQUALYX?
Do not apply any cosmetics onto the treated area within the following 12 hours and avoid all direct sources of heat and radiation (sunlight, UV-radiation, sauna etc.).
You should abstain from particularly demanding physical exercise for 7 days.
As the fatty acids 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.
WHEN IS THE TREAMENT WITH AQUALYX NOT RECOMMENDED?
AQUALYXTM is not recommended when the patient is suffering from acute or chronic skin diseases in the affected area.
For safety reasons all patients with a medical history including anaphylactic reactions, severe allergies, severe organic or physical illnesses, autoimmune diseases or diabetes, as well as women who are pregnant or during lactation are excluded from any treatment with AQUALYXTM.
This pamphlet purely serves as a basic information for patients and does not substitute a detailed and personal consultation with a medical practitioner. Treatment with AQUALYX is not advised for patients under the age of 18 or over 60.
