AQUALYX is the leading injectable fat loss treatment. It is available internationally when compared to Kybella that is available only in the United States.
AQUALYX was developed by the President of the Italian Society of Aesthetics and Medicine late professor Motolese and first introduced in 2009. Since than over 2,000,000 vials have been used for treatments in 49 countries worldwide.
AQUALYX is indicated for the non-surgical reduction of fat deposits located under the skin that are resistant to diet and exercise. It works by causing the breakdown of fat cells: AQUALYX is a gel based solution of exactly the same bile acid as our bodies produce in the liver - Deoxycholate. This bile acid makes the fat cells unstable and destroys them after which they are excreted through the kidneys.
Results of AQUALYX treatment are permanent under the condition you maintain a constant weight: once the freed fats have been processed through your body’s lymphatic system, they don’t reappear. However, the procedure is only permanent if after treatment you follow a healthy diet and exercise frequently. If you regain weight, it is likely that the fat pockets will reappear.
Side effects of a treatment with AQUALYX are quite minimal when compared to such invasive procedures as liposuction. They include light burning, itching, redness and tenderness to the area treated which is a normal response and usually resolve within a few days. You may need to take some painkillers to control any pain-related side effects and use either Aqualyx Body Lotion for softening the irritation and tenderness or Chelaskin cream that relieves the redness and bruising.
If you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or infections in the area treated, there should be no reasons why you should not undergo this treatment. However, AQUALYX is not recommended to pregnant or breast feeding women and those who have been diagnosed with lipodystrophy or any pathological conditions. In addition, AQUALYX should only be used in people aged 18 - 60.
