What is Aqualyx?
Aqualix is a form of intralipotherapy. Intralipotherapy is a treatment using a product such as Aqualyx which disolves fatty tissue. Aqualyx was developed to treat localised pockets of fat underneath the surface of the skin.
What is it used For?
Aqualyx can be used to treat stubborn fat in a number of areas, including the hips, thighs and knees, the area underneath the buttocks, the stomach and back and the chin and the area underneath the chin. It can also be used to treat pseudo-gynaecomastia, the development of fatty tissue around the nipple, resulting in a “breast”-like appearance in men, (due to weight gain rather than the growth of actual breast tissue as seen in genuine male gynaecomastia).
How does intralipotherapy work?
The intralipotherapy solution is injected into the treatment area where it alters the surface tension of the fat cell membrane and increases the permeability. An ultrasound device may then be applied over the surface of the skin in the targeted area which causes the movement of liquids both inside and outside the fat cells. Fat cells will then start to break up, the contents of which is then metabolised through the lymphatic system and excreted.
What happens during treatment?
Before treatment starts a local anaesthetic, lidocaine, will usually be administered. During treatment typically two intection sites are used. Sometimes the doctor may add the lidocaine anaesthetic to the Aqualyx solution so that the two are injected together. Both methods minimise discomfort of the treatment. After the Aqualyx has been administered, an ultrasound device may be used to help break up the fat cells.
How long does it last?
Aqualyx gives permanent results as long as lifestyle permits, i.e. if you follow a healthy diet and exercise frequently following treatment. If you regain weight, it is likely that the fat pockets will reappear. Healthy lifestyle is key to prolonging the results of any fat loss treatment and Aqualyx is no exception.
Side effects & risks
Aqualix is a treatment with minimal side effects when compared to more invasive procedures, such as liposuction. Side effects include some redness, swelling and tenderness or bruising in the treated area. The manufacturers report that to date no major side effects of AQUALYX use have been reported to them.
