Guide to Aqualyx Injections: The Revolutionary Fat-Dissolving Product

By April 11, 2023No Comments

Tweakments, or minimally invasive treatments, are on the rise. Especially with Spring in full bloom and Summer quickly approaching. If you are looking for a minimally invasive fat reduction treatment, Aqualyx may be the one for you! In this blog, we will answer some of our most common questions when it comes to Aqualyx injections.

What is Aqualyx?

Aqualyx is a popular and revolutionary fat-dissolving injection. It is used for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat on the face (chin) and body. It’s ideal for eliminating stubborn pockets of fat that are difficult to lose despite following a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Aqualyx is a gel-based aqueous solution that is biocompatible and biodegradable in the body. It dissolves and liquifies the fat cells, and then they are drained from the body naturally.

How does Aqualyx work?

Aqualyx works by breaking up and liquefying the fat cells. Lipids are then released and drained naturally through the lymphatic system. The  lymphatic system drains and manages fluid levels in the body.

Where can Aqualyx injections be used?

Aqualyx can be used on various parts of the body, including the chin (double chin),  stomach, thighs, hips, and arms.

What are the benefits of Aqualyx injections?

  • Aqualyx is a minimally invasive procedure compared to other fat dissolving treatments, such as liposuction.
  • It will permanently remove fat from the body (as long as weight isn’t gained after treatment).
  • It’s ideal for reducing stubborn pockets of fat, such as under the chin.

What is the recovery time?

It can cause swelling and moderate bruising. However, this should improve within a week.

What are the risks and side effects of Aqualyx?

Aqualyx has some risks and side effects, which your doctor should take you through before a procedure. These side effects are similar to most injectable treatments and include:

  • bruising
  • redness
  • skin irritation
  • Swelling

Side effects depend on the client and the area being treated, but any side effects should go away within a few days. Aqualyx injections are not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women or patients that suffer from conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. You must be over 18 years old to be eligible for treatment, which is the same as all cosmetic procedures.

How many Aqualyx treatments are needed?

The amount of treatments needed will depend on the area being treated. 1 to 3 treatments are usually required for under the chin, but most areas will require 2 to 4 treatments. The procedure can take around an hour.

How should I prepare for Aqualyx treatment?

You should have an initial consultation before any treatment, so that a qualified physician can determine if you are suitable for treatment. Before treatment, it is recommended that you:

  • Drink plenty of water to make sure that you stay hydrated.
  • Avoid, or stop taking any anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Naproxen or Ibuprofen before or after treatment.

What should I do after treatment?

  • You should maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise to ensure that you do not gain weight.
  • Avoid swimming pools, saunas and spas for at least 3 days after treatment.
  • Strenuous physical exercise should be avoided for at least 10 days after Aqualyx injections.

When can I expect to see results?

Most people will start to see results approximately 3 to 5 weeks after the treatment has been administered. However, results will vary for individuals and may require additional injections depending on the area that is being treated.

During your consultation, your doctor should take you through what to expect, as well as booking in for follow-up consultations, as you may require additional injections.
