Aqualyx™ Stubborn Fat Deposit Reduction
If you suffer from stubborn pockets of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise, Aqualyx™ therapy may be an effective treatment for you to consider. It has been proven effective in reducing fat deposits all over the body, including the following areas:
- Upper Arms
- Bra Bulge
- Hips (Love Handles)
- Outer Thighs (Saddle Bags)
- Under the Buttocks (Banana Folds)
- Inner Thighs
- Chin and Jowls
At Appearance Based Medicine Ltd., Clare McLoughlin RGN INP will only carry out any non-surgical aesthetic procedure (including the administration of Aqualyx™ injections for the treatment of stubborn pockets of fat) following a detailed one-to-one consultation with a patient, enabling her to accurately assess whether a treatment is appropriate given a patient’s unique medical history, skin condition and expectations.
During your consultation, you will be given comprehensive information about the procedure, potential side effects, and any pre- and post-treatment advice. You will also be given the time to decide whether or not, given the information you have received, you would like to proceed with any recommended procedure.
Aqualyx™ works by melting or liquefying the fat calls, the products of which are naturally removed by your body’s lymphatic system. The Aqualyx™ treatment involves injecting a carefully prepared solution into the fat through a special ultra-fine Aqualyx™ needle. It is typical to inject the solution twice into each area being treated. The volume of solution needed will vary according to the size of the area.
In order to improve patient comfort, local anaesthetic is used before the injections to provide a virtually ‘pain free’ treatment. Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, during which time you are likely to notice a warm sensation in the area being injected. Post-treatment, it is normal to experience swelling, itching, redness or a burning sensation for 1-3 days in the treated area.
