Aqualyx® - LIPOLISYS WITHOUT A SCALPEL GET RID OF EXTRA KILOGRAMS - permanent effects!
Aqualyx - is a solution where fat cells are primarily affected by substances such as detergents ( sodium deoxycholate type). Detergent dissolves fat and destroys cell membrane, i.e. leads to adiposelisys. While injected into adipose tissue results in destruction of fat cells which are transported to liver and excreted by kidneys. The product does not contain phosphatidylcholine. Contrary to commonly used phosphatidylcholine solutions, Aqualyx product is painless, more efficient, non-invasive, and its effects are a lot faster. The required number of treatments is smaller in order to achieve more efficient effects.
Nowadays, Aqualyx is the only registered product in the world for treatments of injection removal of adipose tissue, and the intralipotherapy technique has been recognized as the safest injection technique as far as reduction of adipose tissue is concerned.
Aqualyx can be applied in the following areas:
- upper limbs - in the area of triceps
- back folds (below ribs)
- below-the-buttock area
- inner side of thighs
- inner side of knees
- double chin/jawline correction
buffalo hump (after antiretroviral therapy)
The amount of adipose tissue depends on the amount of applied Aqualyx during the treatment as well as the size of fat-skin folds. It is between 0.5cm and 3 cm size. In order to have a better comparison, it’s worth to measure the size of treated area before the treatment, take a few photographs and record the menstrual cycle. A series of treatments is vital to achieve the desirable effect. The number of treatments is set individually, usually from 3 to 4 treatments every 3-4 weeks.
- Severe kidney or liver diseases,
- Permanent use of medicine thinning blood, permanent use of medicine thinning blood,
- Thyroid disorders.
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding period
- Aqualyx can be used in patients suffering from autoimmune thyroid disorder, and Hashimoto's disease, only if the level of antibodies is very low or equal to zero.
The permanency of the treatment
Adipose tissue in contact with Aqualyx is permanently damaged. However, there is no possibility to remove all the fat cells from the treated area - it would be unaesthetical and could contribute to damage of tissues located near the adipose tissue. Therefore, intralipotherapy effects are permanent if the body weight is to be maintained. Putting on weight can result in change of size of the treated area, relatively to achieved clinic correction - i.e. the body proportion obtained in the process of treatment can be permanent (diminished with relation to initial number of fat cells, and the adipose tissue in the treated area is to be permanent).
The treatment with use of Aqualyx product
Before the treatment, the physician conducts an interview on past and current diseases. Next the physician performs anthropometric measurements as well as photos and marks the area to be treated.
Intralipotherapy is method of applying Aqualyx solution directly to fat cells by injection (on average 2 injections) by using specially designed needles. The advantage of this method is a limited number of injections, what limits pain, the risk of bruises and damage of skin. Conducted treatment with this technique is almost painless (anaesthetization is added to Aqualyx solution) and lasts about 30 minutes.
Return to daily activities after the treatment
After the treatment the patient can immediately go back to their daily activities. After it, the patient may experience slight itching, burning and sensitiveness of the area where the treatment was carried out. The aforementioned slight side effects are desired since they show efficiency of applied solution. Redness and oedema (swelling) can be visible for a few days. The skin may be sensitive and slightly painful. It’s a normal reaction of the body to the treatment and subsides spontaneously. Similarly to other injection treatments, after applying Aqualyx, haematomas might appear in the injection area.
