The Dr Xavier G. Medi-Spa clinic in Southampton offers Aqualyx™ Injectable Fat Treatment - an exiting product to help target localised areas of fat, which are often resistant to exercise and diet.
You pay close attention to a wholesome lifestyle by exercising regularly and eating healthy, yet that one pad of fat that troubles you most will not disappear? The cause for this lies within our genetics and the special structure of our fat cells in certain areas. The human body naturally stores fat in order to supply energy in times of restraint. Fat cells located in the subcutaneous fat tissue are difficult to diminish, as only their contents and overall volume can be altered, but not the fat cells themselves. These particular fat cells cannot be reduced and continuously serve as a reliable depot for the body to store fat.
Aqualyx™ contains desoxycholan-acid, a secondary bile acid. With the assistance of bacteria our body is able to produce
this acid itself in the liver in order to aid the digestion of fat.
The fat-dissolving effect of this acid was utilised by Prof. Pasquale Motolese, the inventor of AqualyxG, who developed a synthetically manufactured variant. The active substance locks on to the fat cell walls and starts to operate, resulting in the cell wall becoming instable and releasing the fatty acid that is stored within. Cell residue is removed by the body's defenses and the non-attached fatty acids are metabolised and converted into energy.
Used for the dissolution of fat depots, Aqualyx™ can be administered all over the entire body,eg. double chin, pre-jowl sulcus, upper arms, arm pits, waist, hips, saddle bags, knees, shackles, augmented fat depots located on buttocks, chest and the inner thighs. Aqualyx™ is also a possible treatment of pseudo-gynecomastia and buffalo humps.
The amount of treatments varies according to the desired degree of amendment, the dimensions of the fat depot and the individual reactions of the fat tissue. On average you will have to expect around 3 to 5 appointments, with 4-week intervals, until you can actually perceive the results. A treatment with Aqualyx™ does not result in weight loss. Healthy nutrition as well as an exercise regimen are an absolute necessity to ensure success of the treatment.
The solution is injected into the fat through a special Aqualyx™ sharp cannula using a unique trained technique. Usually 2 injection spots are required per region with the amount of product used differing according to the area of fat being treated. Lidocaine (a local anaesthetic) can be added to the solution before injecting to improve patient comfort levels; the treatment is relatively painless with a warm sensation, itching, slight burning, slight oedema and reddening appearance for 1-3 days within the treated area.
