Treatment Areas How Does It Work?ProcedureRecoveryFees Practitioners
Aqualyx is a gel-based, aqueous solution which acts beneath the skin to dissolve fat. When injected into fatty deposits, Aqualyx liquefies the fat cells, destroying them permanently. This releases lipids which are naturally eliminated through the lymphatic system.
Aqualyx is suitable for reducing stubborn areas of fat which cannot be targeted by diet or exercise.
Aqualyx is not a weight loss solution: it is suitable for localised fat reduction for smaller stubborn areas of fat. At Kat&Co, we use Aqualyx primarily to treat the chin area.
Aqualyx is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical body sculpting treatment. The gel-based solution is injected into areas of unwanted fat. This solution weakens the fat cells, disrupting the surface to make them permeable. This fat, now in lipid form, is then absorbed naturally by the body and excreted.
As long as the patient does not gain weight after the treatment then the results are permanent.
Typically, the chin, because it has a relatively small volume of fat, will only require a single treatment. In some cases, where there is more excess fat to be removed, you may require additional injections.
Your practitioner will usually apply a topical anaesthetic cream or inject the area with local anaesthetic to numb the area and reduce any discomfort. The treatment can take between 30 and 60 minutes depending on how much fat needs to be removed, but typically takes 45 minutes including a consultation.
You are likely to have some redness, bruising and swelling that can last up to 48-72 hours. You are able to take over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol, but you should not take any anti-inflammatory painkillers (ibuprofen) because this will counter the effects of the treatment.
