Fat dissolving solution AQUALYX is an aqueous compound solution of 12alfa-dihydroxy-5beta-24-oico cholanic acid sodium salts which is a modified compound of Cholanic Acid also known as Deoxycholic Acid.
AQUALYX is an injectable treatment of stubborn fat pockets located underneath the skin in such areas as saddle bags, thighs, stomachs, chins, knees and so-called “man-boobs” that represent pseudo-gynocomastia in men as a result of weight gain rather than the growth of actual breast tissue.
AQULAYX is used for body contouring and fat removal while conducting a specific form of injection lipolysis, lipotherapy or intralipotherapy called “Aqualysis” or “Aquaplasty”.
Potential AQUALYX treatment areas include:
AQUALYX is a compound solution from the deoxycholate family. Deoxycholic acid has been used in various spheres of human medicine since its discovery. Present also in the human body, Deoxycholic Acid’s main function is to emulsify the fats for the absorption in the intestine.
However, AQUALYX is not a simple solution of deoxycholate like Kybella. It has been physically modified to make sure it gives minimal side effects compared to Kybella.
Active composition of AQUALYX includes a polymer from 3, 6-Anhydro-L-Galactose and D-Galactose (0.5%), buffer systems (4.2%), sodium salt of (3α, 5α, 12α) - 3, 12-dihydroxy-5-cholan-24-acid (7.5%), water for injection (87%) and sodium chloride (0.8%).
AQUALYX represents a versatile treatment option for patients who are looking treat pockets of fat that are difficult to remove through diet and exercise alone. It is not a weight loss solution.
Along with AQUALYX, its inventor also developed an injection technique for “Aqualysis” (or “Aquaplasty”). It represents a special way of injecting the solution into localized fat deposit while using specially designed intralipotherapy needles. Once injected, AQUALYX liquefies the fat cells, destroying them permanently and releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally via lymphatic system.
During Aqualysis, an ultrasound device can be used to assist in the dissipation of AQUALYX throughout the localized fat cells.
AQUALYX treatment typically consists of two injection sites. A local anaesthetic – Lidocaine – should be administered before the treatment commences. This should minimize discomfort during the procedure. It has been known that Aqualyx is mixed with Lidocaine. Lidocaine makes Aqualyx cloudy without lessening its stability and effect.
Treatment can take between 30 - 60 minutes per treatment and although some people may see significant results after just 1 or 2 sessions, typically you will require 2 - 8 treatments, 4 weeks apart: treatment for fat pockets underneath the neck and chin, for example, may require 1 - 3 treatments of 2 - 3 injections while treatment for fat pockets on the hips and thighs may require 8 treatments.
AQUALYX is biocompatible and biodegradable.
