What is Aqualyx

Aqualyx is a non-surgical method which is considered to be the only alternative treatment to liposuction. Aqualyx helps to reduce local fatty deposits in areas such as the abdomen, hips or inner knees where dieting and physical activity are not efficient. Surgical liposuction has so far been the only treatment which was used in order to reduce undesired excess layers of fat. Although this method is still considered to be efficient, today many patients opt for non-invasive solutions which are just as effective and safe.
A naturally occurring agent called deoxycholate is injected into the fatty deposits to slowly break the area down over time. This technique, which is called intralipotherapy, enables better placement of substance in desired spots and is aimed at efficient reduction of fat tissue.
Aqualyx is the only product which has so far been registered to perform treatments aimed at destruction of fat cells while intralipotherapy is considered the safest injective technique used to reduce fat tissue.
It must be emphasized that Aqualys is not a replacement technique for conventional liposuction. It is a non-surgical treatment which does not exclude the patient from everyday activities.

How does Aqualyx work?

Aqualyx is an injectable product. The treatment consists of the infiltration, into the thickness of the fat tissue treated, of a substance with a detergent effect on the cell membranes of the adipocytes, which leads to the reduction in thickness of the fat in the area being treated, provided that the accumulated fat is mild to moderate. Cell residue is removed  by  the  body’s  defenses  and  the  non-attached fatty acids are metabolised and converted into energy.

Which parts of the body can be treated with the product?

Aqualyx can be used all over the entire body but it is recommended on these parts of the body where the fat tissue is difficult to reduce through dieting or physical exercise. These areas include:
  • arms,
  • augmented fat depots located on the back, below the ribs,
  • abdomen,
  • hips,
  • augmented fat depots located on the legs,
  • augmented fat depots located on buttocks,
  • inner thighs,
  • inner knees,
  • double chin,
  • gynecomastia,
  • „Buffalo humps”.

Who is the treatment for?

The treatment is designed for any woman or man with correct body weight or overweight who feel uncomfortable with excess fat in certain areas. It is a common problem among women who cannot get rid of fat, which are often resistant to exercise and diet. Most common areas include the hips, the abdomen or thighs.

Before the treatment: guidelines

There is no need for any preliminary medical preparation, but patients have to be in good physical condition. One week before the treatment patients should not take aspirin or any other medication that decrease blood coagulability.
How does the treatment work?

During the treatment Aqualyx is injected directly into the fat tissue. The treatment is performed with an elastic needle which injects proper amount of the product with only two punctures in the given area. This technique helps to bring bruising and hematoma to minimum. The treatment is painless (the injected solution is mixed with painkillers) and fast, it usually takes 20-30 minutes to perform.

Do I need local anaesthetic?

The treatment is painless (the injected solution is mixed with painkillers) so there is no need to apply any other painkilling drugs.

How do I look just after the treatment?

After the treatment patients come back to everyday activities with no downtime at all. The treatment is relatively painless with a warm sensation, itching, slight burning, slight oedema and reddening appearance for 1-3 days which prove that the product is working.
All these symptoms disappear within the period of 1-4 days. Shortly after the treatment hematoma may occur but these also disappear soon.

What are the results?

After the treatment the fat layer in the treated area is significantly diminished.

When do I see the final results of the treatment?

The results should be expected after approximately 2 weeks after the injection which is when the redness and slight oedema finally resolve.

How many treatments do I need to see satisfactory results?

Patients usually perceive the results after a series of 3 to 4 injections of the product made every 3-4 weeks, depending on patient’s individual physical condition and genetics.

How long do I see the results of the treatment?

Satisfactory results can usually be enjoyed for a long time as the fat tissue in the treated area will not reconstruct.

How often do I need to repeat the treatment?

The treatment should be repeated every 3 to 4 weeks until the patient can enjoy satisfactory results. Further treatments may not be necessary.

Contraindications include:
  • kidney and liver diseases,
  • thyroid illness,
  • blood coagulability disfunction,
  • anticoagulants,
  • pregnancy and breast-feeding,

After the treatment: guidelines

After the treatment patients are advised to wear loose clothes until the swelling resolves and refrain from any massages performed on the treated area.
