Fat Dissolving Injections
At Hereford’s Premier Aesthetic Clinic
Aqualyx is ideal for those who who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet but have stubborn pockets of fat that won’t shift. We must make it very clear that Aqualyx is not a substitute for diet and exercise and cannot fix you if you are overweight. It is for stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. So a perfect Aqualyx patient might be a young mother who has been left with an area of fat in her abdomen that cannot be fixed by all the exercise in the world. Or a patient who has ‘muffin tops’ on an otherwise slender frame.
Our team is here to help you with any questions you have… call us on 01432 870717.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Aqualyx?
Aqualyx®, developed for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat under the skin is a gel-based watery solution, which dissolves fat and is biocompatible (compatible with all parts of the body) and biodegradable (able to break down naturally and cause no harm). Aqualyx® works by causing the breakdown of fat cells. The body then expels the released fatty acids naturally.
What areas can be treated?
Aqualyx® can be used on the following areas:
What can I expect during treatment?
Will it Hurt?
How Many Treatments Would I Need?
How long will it take to see results?
How long will it last?
The fat cells that are left behind can become engorged and enlarged to compensate if diet and exercise levels are not maintained.
Are there any Side effects?
As Aqualyx® is a non-surgical solution it means no downtime and no general Anaesthetic risks. As there are no incisions, stitches are not required and scarring is very unlikely.
There are some temporary side effects, which include bruising, swelling, redness and irritation in the injection area. Sometimes it may feel a slightly tender to touch, numb or itchy but these side effects usually reside after 1-3 days.
Post treatment advice and aftercare
Avoid direct heat ie sun, saunas etc for a few days after each treatment.
