Body Sculpting Treatment

Are you always struggling with stubborn fatty areas of your body that do not seem to slim down, no matter how much diet or exercise you do?

Unfortunately, sometimes all the exercise and dieting in the world does not seem to remove fat in certain areas, such as on the upper arms, stomach, thighs, hips and waist.

While liposuction is one option, other less invasive treatments have emerged as a fat-dissolving alternative for both face and body.

What is Body Sculpting

Body sculpting treatments are non-surgical, minimally invasive procedures designed to get rid of fat cells and reduce the appearance of fat on targeted areas of the body. These treatments are not designed to remove large amounts of fat, or to be an alternative to exercise and a healthy diet.

For these reasons, they are best suitable for patients that are not heavily overweight but want to get rid of stubborn fat that cannot be reduced through exercise or diet alone.

Aqualyx Body Sculpting Treatment

Aqualyx is an injectable compound made from a family of acids that cause fat destruction in the body. The solution is water-based and contains ingredients that bind to the fat cell walls, before rupturing and releasing the fat to be dissolved by your own body.

In other words, the acids contained in Aqualyx work by liquefying and permanently destroying fat cells, which are then eliminated naturally by the body through the lymphatic system.

The cells that are killed are gone forever and will not grow back. However, it is important to notice that the remaining fat cells can still expand in size. This means it is still possible to see fat in those areas appearing again if you gain weight through unhealthy diet or lack of exercise.

Aqualyx Treatment Effectiveness

Aqualyx injections are very effective for face and body sculpting and are ideal for clients who favour minimally invasive treatments.

Aqualyx can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Double chin

  • Prejowl sulcus (a drooping of flesh, forming the ‘sides’ of a double chin)

  • Upper arms

  • Armpits

  • Waist

  • Hips

  • Saddlebags

  • Knees

  • Fat deposits on buttocks, chest and inner thighs

Most clients notice a visible difference within six weeks with subsequent treatments further improving the overall result. The number of treatments required ranges from one to eight, with intervals of four weeks in between.

How does Aqualyx work

Aqualyx injections are used to effectively dissolve areas of resistant fat deposits without the need for liposuction. This process happens over a few weeks, so results may not be immediately visible.

Dr Nina will meet you for an initial consultation to discuss your treatment goals and explain the procedure. On the day of the procedure, you will receive an injection of a local anaesthetic to numb the area and reduce discomfort.

The Aqualyx solution will then be injected into the targeted area of your body. The amount of solution used, and the number of injections will depend upon the area being treated.

After the treatment, you should avoid applying any cosmetics onto the treated area for at least 12 hours and avoid all direct sources of heat and radiation (sunlight, UV-radiation, sauna etc.). Furthermore, you should abstain from particularly demanding physical exercise for at least seven days.

Side Effects and Contraindications

The process usually takes anywhere from a half an hour to an hour. Swelling and minor bruising can occur directly after the procedure but should disappear within a few days.

A rarer side effect is scarring, which has been reported but is not known to occur with any regularity. Therefore, it is important to evaluate your skin’s elasticity prior to receive Aqualyx injections.

It is also possible (but very rare) that you could have an allergic reaction to one or more of the substances present in Aqualyx.

Finally, you should not receive Aqualyx injections if:

  • you are breastfeeding

  • you have an inability to produce fat (lipodystrophy) and/or any conditions that affect fat processing in your body

  • you are pregnant

  • you have any skin diseases or infections

Aqualyx can only be legally administered by accredited practitioners, such as Dr Nina at Facial Sculpting, and it is subject to previous consultation only.
