For this Condition
Fat Lipolysis is a method of removing fat deposits in the body. We offer two options for this:
Aqualyx ®, and DesoFace and DesoBody.
Aqualyx ®, developed for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat under the skin, is an injectable, gel-based aqueous solution, which dissolves fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable. It works by causing the dissolution of fat cells. The body then expels the released fatty acids naturally in the urine and faeces.
Aqualyx ® is the only product available for ‘Aquaplasty’ or ‘Aqualysis’ (treatment) and is registered with a medical CE mark. Treatment with Aqualyx ® is only available to patients from trained healthcare professionals in the UK.
Aqualyx ® is a compound solution from the deoxycholate family that has been physically modified and, by creating a slow release sugar-based system, the biological half-life is reduced, which results in minimal side effects.
Contraindications: You will not be able to have Aqualyx® treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, liposdystrophy, pathological conditions such as Diabetes and for those under 18 year or over 60 years.
How is Aqualyx® administered?
Typically, two injection spots are required for each area being treated; patients report good tolerance of the treatment, and an anaesthetic solution is normally added prior to injection for greater comfort.
How long will it take to administer Aqualyx®?
The treatment will be repeated between two and eight times depending on the number of small
pockets of fat tissue to be reduced. The injections are repeated every 8-12 weeks.
What results can I expect from Aqualyx®?
This treatment is very effective for removing fat deposits and making your skin look younger and more defined.
Are there any side effects?
After each treatment patients can expect some swelling, redness and skin irritation and tenderness in the area treated, which will subside after four to six days. Our highly trained and experienced nurse can discuss any concerns you have before undergoing the treatment.
DesoFace & DesoBody
DesoFace reduces localised adiposity and drains excess fluid. It can be very helpful for fat around chins. DesoBody has a higher concentration of Deocycholic Acid and reduces localised adiposity, making your skin firmer. Both work on stubborn pockets of fat that exercise and diet won’t affect.
DesoFace and DesoBody work on the chin, stomach, thighs, saddle bags, knees, and back.
DesoFace & DesoBody FAQ's
How is DesoFace and DesoBody administered?
This treatment is usually administered using a cannula, and the whole session will take around 30-45 minutes.
What results can I expect from DesoFace and DesoBody?
The results can be permanent. It can take up to 8 weeks to see complete results, and larger areas can require more sessions to see results.
Are there any after effects?
Some redness and swelling should be expected but will quickly improve. You may also experience bruising and mild pain but, again, that will quickly improve. Our highly trained and experienced nurse can discuss any concerns you have before undergoing the treatment.
