There’s a lot of information out there about fat removal treatments, but how can you sort the truth from the myths? When considering treatments to dissolve fat from the body, regardless of where you are, it is important to understand the facts about the procedure and its benefits before completely ruling it out.
If you’ve tried every diet on the shelves and are exercising till you’re blue in the face, yet you can’t seem to shift that stubborn double chin or small pocket of unwanted fat, you’re in luck. Surgery isn’t your final and only option now that non-surgical treatments can be just as effective with less pain and downtime. One of the most popular options is Aqualyx — a non-surgical treatment that dissolves fat cells when injected into tissue under the skin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Aqualyx® is injected directly into the subcutaneous fat tissue. The sodium salt of the (3α, 5α, 12α) - 3, 12-dihydroxy-5-cholan-24-acid, the active substance of Aqualyx®, breaks down the fat cell membrane. The cell releases its contents, the triglycerides, resulting in aninflammatory reaction within the fatty tissue. Over a period of about three weeks, the previously enclosed fatty acids are partially excreted by the lymph system via the blood circulation and the digestive system.
WHEN DO I SEE RESULTS?
In 4-6 weeks, but depends on the treated area.
More sessions 4-6 weeks apart may be needed.
Avoid exercise for at least 1 week
EXPECTED SIDE EFFECTS
Moderate itching of the injected area
Light to moderate reddening of the skin
Temporary sense of pain (rare).
