Is Aqualyx safe?
Aqualyx was developed by Professor Pasquale Motolese, Vice President of the Italian Society of Aesthetic Surgery and Medicine who presented it at the Aesthetic Medical International Congress in Milan in 2004.
Aqualyx has been given CE approval for use in the UK which means it meets the health and safety standards required by the European Union. Since 2009 Aqualyx has been used in over 2 million treatments in over 49 countries. It has a strong safety record supported by sound medical science.
Aqualyx is a safe, effective fat dissolving injection treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long lasting results, which means you can banish those annoyingly wobbly bits.
Aqualyx can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.
Is Aqualyx suitable for me?
If you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle and are close to your ideal body weight, but have isolated stubborn areas of fat then Aqualyx might be suitable. Popular areas that we treat are double chins, moobs, saddle bags, inner thighs, cankles and abdomen – including defining a six pack.
If you have significant weight then Aqualyx is not suitable for you, but other body contouring treatments we offer maybe. If you have recently lost significant weight then the area concerning you may be loose skin which we can improve with skin tightening treatments.
A consultation with one of our doctors or nurses will determine the correct treatment plan for you.
Aqualyx is not suitable if you:
- Have diabetes.
- Have liver or kidney disease.
- Have active skin problem in the area to be treated.
- Are taking blood thinning medicine e.g warfarin
