Fat Dissolving - Aqualyx
Aqualyx is a non surgical solution to minimise stubborn localised pockets of fat. It is ideal for those who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet and life style but still have stubborn fat that won't shift.
The technique consists of injecting the solution into the localised areas of fat such as chins, neck, saddle bags, thighs, stomach, underarm, arms, legs, love handles, back and knees.
Aqualyx liquefies the fat cell, destroying it permanently releasing lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
How many treatments will you need ?
This all depends on what area we are treating and how large it is, the area will be treated between 4-8 times in one session, then the treatment can be repeated every 3-4 weeks as required.
How quickly will I see results?
A reduction in fat deposits can usually be seen after one treatment, however between three and eight sessions are required to see the optimal effect. The speed at which results are seen will vary.
Does the treatment hurt ?
Everyones pain threshold is different and it can depend on the area which is being treated. Numbing cream will be applied at least 20 mins before treatment, you may feel a little discomfort but should not be painful but very much tolerable.
