Ayqalyx Fat Dissolving Injections are commonly used to treat pockets of fat under the chin (double chin) and can also be used to treat arm fat, bra back fat, stomach fat and love handles. Aqualyx fat dissolving injections are ideal for those who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet but have pockets of fat that remain irrespective of weight. Genetics often play a part particularly with double chins.
At Springwell Clinic although we also offer Cryopolysis (fat freezing) for fat reduction, it is sometimes difficult, because of the size of the vacuum heads, to successfully treat double chins. This is the area that Aqualyx can really help, particularly in conjunction with some of our other treatments such as HIFU, Radiofrequency and Dermal Fillers, to give a more defined jawline.
How do Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections Work?
Aqualyx is an injection that works by breaking down fat cells, destroying them permanently. The broken down cells are eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system. The procedure involves injecting into the fat to be removed and then the nurse will massage the area. You will need to continue to massage the area at home for a few days. Lidocaine for pain relief is mixed in with the Aqualyx to make the treatment comfortable to have.
How many treatments will I need?
You will require 2-3 treatments with improvements normally becoming visible after the second treatment. The results are permanent as long as you maintain a constant weight and eat healthily and exercise regularly.
This is a patient prior to treatment.
Are there any Side Effects?
You will experience swelling/discolouration of the skin and tenderness. There may also be some bruising. The area will feel tender for 7-10 days with some swelling. Wearing a scarf or a high neck top will help but this treatment is best not done close to an event.
The long term benefit is a beautifully defined jawline, as can be seen from the same patient post treatment.
Before you commence any treatment at Springwell Clinic you will have a free of charge consultation with your practitioner. This gives you the time to discuss all aspects of the treatment programme and its’ costs. A medical history is taken and a plan is created so that you are fully informed and aware of your journey ahead.
