aqualyx

AQUALYX™ was developed for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat under the skin, it is an injectable, solution, which dissolves fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable. It is being marketed for ‘Aqualysis’ or ‘Aquaplasty’ treatment as a means of body contouring. This is a form of injection lipolysis, lipotherapy or intralipotherapy.

What is Aqualyx ?

Aqualyx is a compound solution from the deoxycholate family that has been modified to create a slow release system, which results in minimal side effects. Deoxycholic acid has been used in various fields of human medicine since its discovery. Present also in the human body, deoxycholic acid is used in the emulsification of fats for the absorption in the intestine.

Developed by renowned aesthetic surgeon the late Professor Motolese, Aqualyx has been available internationally since 2009, and over 2,000,000 vials have been used for patient treatments in 49 countries worldwide. Aqualyx is manufactured by the Italian firm Marllor and was first launched in the UK in 2013.

Aqualyx is a Medical Device. European CE Mark approved in December 2012.

 

How does Aqualyx work?
The solution is injected into the treatment area whereby the Aqualyx solution alters the surface tension of the fat cell membrane and increases the permeability of the membrane. The fat cells start to balloon and break up, leading to the drainage of micro droplets of fatty liquid into the body, which is then metabolised through the lymphatic system and excreted.

 

What happens during treatment?

Local anaesthetic is used to reduce the discomfort caused by this treatment. The Aqualyx is injected into the problem area.

After each treatment expect some swelling, redness, skin irritation and tenderness in the area treated, which will subside after four to six days.

The time taken for a treatment session will depend upon the size of the area.
Treatment can take between 30 - 60 minutes per treatment and you will typically require 2 - 8 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Some people may see significant results after 1 or 2 sessions.
Treatment for fat pockets underneath the neck and chin, for example, may require 1 - 3 treatments, while treatment for fat pockets on the hips and thighs may require 8 treatments.

What can Aqualyx be used to treat?
Aqualyx can be used to treat stubborn fat pockets in a number of areas, including the hips, thighs and knees, the area underneath the buttocks, the stomach and back and the chin and the area underneath the chin.
It is used to treat pockets of fat that are difficult to remove through diet and exercise alone. Aqualyx is not a weight loss solution.

How long does Aqualyx last?
The results of an Aqualyx treatment are permanent under the condition of maintaining a constant weight measurement (i.e. assuming you don`t gain weight). Once the freed fatty acids have been processed through the body’s lymphatic system, they don’t reappear.
However, the procedure is only permanent if you follow a healthy diet and exercise frequently following treatment. If you regain weight, it is likely that the fat pockets will reappear. If a healthy lifestyle is maintained, the results should be permanent.

Side effects & risks of Aqualyx
People treated with AQUALYX will typically experience minimal side effects when compared to more invasive procedures, such as liposuction.
Side effects include some redness, swelling and tenderness in the treated area.
Some people may experience some light bruising, but this and any other side effects will usually resolve within a few days. You may need to take over the counter painkillers to control any pain-related side effects.
The manufacturers report that to date no major side effects of AQUALYX use have been reported to them.

Contraindications for Aqualyx
As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why you should not undergo this treatment.
However, AQUALYX is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast feeding. It is also not recommended for those people who have been diagnosed with lipodystrophy or any pathological conditions.
It should only be used in people aged 18 - 60. 

Cost of treatment
The cost of treatment depends on the area(s) being treated and the specilaist performing it.
