What is Aqualyx® used for?
It used for Aqualysis or Aquaplasty treatment to reduce localised, stubborn fat deposits in areas such as the chin, stomach,
outer and inner thighs, hips, knees etc.
How quickly will I see results?
A reduction in fat deposits can be seen after just one treatment, however between three and eight sessions are required
to see the optimal effect. The speed at which results are seen will vary depending on the stability of the cell membranes;
younger patients are more likely to results after a longer period.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
It is suitable for patients who do not want the more invasive liposuction or laser lipo treatments, who do not have large
amounts of fat to remove and who are over 18 years and under 60 years of age. The treatment is not suitable for pregnant or
lactating women or those with a pathological condition.
Is the treatment suitable for overweight patients as a weight loss method?
No, Aqualyx® and Aqualysis are aimed at reducing stubborn pockets of fat.
What are the side effects?
Minimal side effects have been reported globally since its introduction, but patients can expect a little skin irritation,
bruising and oedema, which will ease after a few days.
How much does Aqualyx® cost?
This will depend upon the size of the area being treated, the number of vials used and how many treatments are performed.
