Definition - What does Aqualyx mean?
Aqualyx is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid which is naturally produced in the liver for fat metabolism. It has the ability to adhere to the wall of the fat cells, making them unstable, resulting in the rupture and destruction of their cell membranes.
As a result, the body absorbs them and uses them for energy. Therefore, Aqualyx injection therapy is ideal for those who suffer from local fat deposits.
TheConsultation explains Aqualyx
Aqualyx is injected directly into the subcutaneous adipose tissue with the use of fine, flexible needles. As the fat tissue has almost no sensation, the treatment is practically painless. In addition, Aqualyx contains an additional local anesthetic.
The treatment can be applied almost on every part of the human body to dissolve the local fat. Specifically, it can be used in: buttocks, double-chin, arms, armpits, waist, hips, love handles, knees, chest or inner thighs. It may also be a possible solution for pseudogynecomastia and buffalo hump.
Immediately after treatment, the area may appear some redness and mild swelling. As with any therapy that involves needles, minor bruising is likely to occur. All of these are considered to be expected side effects which go away completely within a few days.
