How does it work?
The solution is injected into the treatment area whereby the 12alfa-dihydroxy-5beta-24-oico cholanic acid sodium salt of AQUALYX alters the surface tension of the fat cell membrane and increases the permeability of the membrane. An ultrasound device is then applied over the surface of the skin in the targeted area and this causes the movement of liquids both inside and outside the fat cells. The fat cells start to balloon and break up, leading to the drainage of micro droplets of fatty liquid into the body, which is then metabolised through the lymphatic system and excreted.
What happens during treatment?
One AQUALYX treatment typically consists of two injection sites. A local anaesthetic, lidocaine, will usually be administered before the treatment commences. The practitioner may prefer however to add the lidocaine anaesthetic to the AQUALYX solution so that the two are injected together. Either method should minimise discomfort during the procedure.
The practitioner will use an ultrasound device in conjunction with the AQUALYX injections to assist in the dissipation of the fat cells.
Aqualyx®, developed for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat under the skin is a gel-based aqueous solution, which dissolves fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable.
