Local fat removal
In these days of age, we are all motivated to look good and stay healthy. Sometimes even with the strictest diet and exercise routine, we fail to get rid of certain areas of fatty deposits. Stubborn fat such as this is very frustrating and demoralising.
Injection lipolysis (or Fat Dissolving Injections) entered the UK market like a storm just a few years ago. It is a CE marked, revolutionary technique that can dissolve local fat. It reduces unflattering and stubborn areas of fat without the need for liposuction or surgery. Injection lipolysis works by hydrolysing the wall of the fat cell and therefore making it release its lipid content. It can be used almost anywhere in the body.
In men, it is a particularly popular treatment for the reduction of fatty deposits in areas such as chest, abdomen and the waistline. Studies prove that injection lipolysis such as Aqualyx® causes a disruption in fat cells which subsequently leads to natural clearance of fat via the normal system in the liver. The treatments are done every 3-4 weeks until the desired result is achieved. On average 3-5 sessions are required depending on the volume of the fat deposit. Whether you are a man who is interested in reducing some local fat around your waist, or a bodybuilder who is after a more defined six pack, fat dissolving injections may be the treatment to get you one step closer to your goal.
