Sometimes, all the exercise and dieting in the world doesn’t seem to remove fat in certain areas like under the cheeks, hips, stomach, etc. While liposuction is one option, other injectable treatments have emerged as a fat-dissolving alternative. One example is the Aqualyx solution.
In this post, we have discussed all the important points that you need to know about Fat Dissolving Injection (Aqualyx).
What Is Aqualyx?
Aqualyx is an injectable compound made from the deoxycholate family of acids. The product may also be called Motolese’s Solution, named for the professor that introduced the drug.
The acids present in Aqualyx cause fat destruction in the body. It is used for body contouring. They may inject it into different areas of the body, such as the:
When injected into the body, Aqualyx can reduce the appearance of fat to give a smoother, more contoured appearance. While a person will see changes after one treatment, they’ll usually require more than one treatment session to see maximum results.
Aqualyx contains the following ingredients:
- Buffering Chemicals
- Modified Compound Of Deoxycholic Acid
- Red Microalgae Sugars
- Other Sugars
- Sodium Chloride
Who’s an ideal candidate for Aqualyx?
Aqualyx is intended for those who have good skin elasticity. This is usually (but not always) people 18 to 60 years old. Otherwise, the treatment could cause the skin to appear saggy after injections.
You shouldn’t receive Aqualyx injections if:
- you’re breastfeeding
- you have an inability to produce fat ( lipodystrophy )
- you’re pregnant
- you have skin diseases or infections
- you have any conditions that affect fat processing in your body
What it’s like to get Aqualyx Injections?
While the process may vary slightly based on where a person is receiving the injections, here are some basic steps you might undergo when receiving Aqualyx injections:
- Your doctor/practitioner will first discuss your treatment goals with you.
- The area where you’re getting Aqualyx injected will be cleaned.
- You’ll receive an injection of a local anesthetic to numb the area and reduce discomfort.
- Your doctor/practitioner will then inject the Aqualyx solution into the targeted area of your body. The amount of Aqualyx used and the number of injections will depend upon the area being treated.
Once Aqualyx dissolves the unwanted fat, the effect is thought to be permanent. However, if you gain weight following the procedure, it’s possible you may see diminished results.
Are there any side effects of using Aqualyx Injections?
Aqualyx isn’t without its side effects. A doctor/practitioner should discuss these with you before undergoing the procedure. Examples include:
- Skin Irritation
A rarer side effect is scarring, which has been reported but isn’t known to occur with any regularity.
It’s also possible you could have an allergic reaction to one or more of the substances present in Aqualyx.
How much does Aqualyx cost?
The average cost per Aqualyx treatment is £250 per session. However, the costs have a wide range of up to £700.
