FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What is AQUALYX®️?

AQUALYX®️, developed for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat under the skin, is an injectable, gel-based aqueous solution, which dissolves the fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable. AQUALYX®️ works by causing the dissolution of fat cells, the body then expels the released fatty acids naturally through the body’s waste system.

How does the AQUALYX®️ treatment work?

AQUALYX®️ works by locking onto the walls of the fat cell and making it unstable so it releases the content of fatty acid inside. The body then uses up the fatty acid as energy and removes the cell residue in its normal waste removal system.

What happens during the AQUALYX®️ treatment?

The treatment is virtually painless as the fat tissue is almost free of sensation and AQUALYX®️ contains an additional local anesthetic. A thin cannula is used to inject the solution directly into the subcutaneous fat tissue. After treatment, the area may be red or swollen, slight stinging sensation, minor bruising might develop and subside after a couple of days.

When is AQUALYX®️ not recommended?

AQUALYX®️ is not recommended if you are suffering from acute or chronic skin disease in the affected area. For safety reasons all patients with a medical history including anaphylactic reactions, severe allergies, severe illnesses, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, and women who are pregnant, or breastfeeding are excluded from any treatment with AQUALYX®️.

What should I do after treatment?

Do not apply any cosmetics to the treated area within a 12-hour period and avoid direct sources of heat and radiation (UV radiation, sunlight, and sauna, etc.). We recommend you avoid any strenuous exercise for 7 days and for areas such as the stomach wearing a supportive garment for 24-48 hours.
