KEY TREATMENT AREAS

DR BERRY'S ADVICE

AFTERCARE

AQUALYX® is a fat dissolving injection which can be used on most areas of the body, with the most popular being the chin, upper arms, waist, hips, inner thighs and buttocks.

AQUALYX® injections liquefy the fat cells, destroying them permanently and releasing lipids which are then expelled by the body through the lymphatic system.

This is not a weight loss treatment or an alternative to diet and exercise; but AQUALYX® injections are very helpful in refining body shape by tackling those areas that are stubborn and resistant to exercise.

​For 24 hours you will need to avoid any cosmetic products on the treated areas as well as all direct sources of heat and radiation such as sunlight, UV-radiation, and saunas for instance. Exercise can be resumed after 5-7 days. It’s important to eat healthily to prevent the released fatty acids being stored once again as fat in another area of the body.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

AQUALYX® is injected directly into the fat tissue. The molecule is encased in a sugar coating which helps to release the substance slowly and minimise side effects.

The solution is mixed with a local anaesthetic to keep any discomfort to an absolute minimum while we are dissolving away the stubborn areas of fat. After dissolution of the targeted fat cells, the body expels the fatty acids naturally through the urine.

 

Following treatment, you will experience swelling and redness in the area where the fat has been dissolved for a few weeks. This starts to settle after a few days and is normally gone in 3-4 weeks. You may have some discomfort, but this is not usually severe. A little bruising is expected. You should not exercise for 5 days and some patients find mild compression clothing helps for non-facial treatment areas. A low-fat diet can help to increase the effectiveness of AQUALYX®.

 

While results can’t be compared to surgical liposuction, where large amounts of fat are permanently removed from the body, the results of AQUALYX are still permanent.
