What is Aqualyx?
Aqualyx is a water-based solution that is injected into the fatty tissue, surrounds the cells and destroys them. The remains of the fat cells are then excreted by the body safely as waste. Aqualyx is used for people who want to get rid of stubborn areas of fat in their faces and in their bodies and is clinically proven for these purposes.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Any area where stubborn fat has built up around the face and neck. Popular areas are:
- Double Chin
How many treatments will I need and how much will it cost?
This depends on the individual and the area being treated. Just one session will make a difference, but generally between 2-6 treatments will be recommended for full results. Please contact Elizabeth Tetlow for a free initial consultation.
Does is hurt?
We will numb the areas before injecting, which significantly reduces any potential discomfort.
What should I expect post treatment?
You may develop some bruising and/or minor swelling, itching or a slight burning sensation on the treated area within the first 2 days after the treatment. This is due to the inflammatory reaction that AQUALYX triggers in the fat cells. These side effects are generally manageable and short-lasting.
Is Aqualix a permanent treatment?
The destroyed fat cells will not return or be redeveloped. However, it is important to adhere to sensible lifestyle advice i.e. healthy diet and regular exercise. This is so that remaining fat cells do not increase in size.
