The venesection was painless to say the least, thank you for using local anaesthetics; highly recommended
Do you have stubborn areas of fat that will not budge? Do they refuse to disappear despite your best efforts at maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine? The human body naturally stores excess energy as subcutaneous fat, and our genetics determine the distribution of these fatty deposits under the skin.
We all have those areas of our bodies that we wish we could change or alter slightly. This is why we have developed a combination therapy of Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections followed by state-of-the-art 3D LIPO Ultrasound Cavitation for maximum fat reduction and body contouring results.
We are the only aesthetic clinic in London, registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), that provides ultrasonic cavitation treatment at no extra charge (as long as there are no contraindications to your Aqualyx treatment).
How Aqualyx Injections Work
Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections work very well in dissolving stubborn areas of fat – which means that we can reduce fat deposits in any problem area you might have. Clinical studies have shown that when correctly injected into the regional adipose (fatty) tissue, Aqualyx fat-reducing injections dissolve fat cells. The product was developed and patented by a renowned aesthetic surgeon, Professor Pasquale Motolese.
Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections are administered through a unique injection technique called “Aqualysis”, which follows a precise protocol. The treatment should only be performed by a competent doctor registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) who has undertaken specialised training in specific techniques using Aqualysis cannulas (long, flexible plastic tubes). Aqualyx is very versatile and can be injected into almost any part of the body where there are localised pockets of fat.
The main component of Aqualyx is Deoxycholic acid (DC), a secondary bile acid naturally present in the body. When this is injected into the subcutaneous layer, it destabilises the fat cell membranes and causes the permanent dissolution of fat cells. A reduction in fat deposits becomes visible within three to four weeks, as the fat cells are released and removed naturally via the lymphatic system through your urine.
How 3D LIPO Ultrasound Cavitation Works
Here at Harley Street MD aesthetic clinic in London, we use a powerful 200-watt output cyclone cavitation transducer handpiece with four transducers, incorporating advanced ultrasound cyclone technology. This allows us to treat larger areas with maximum intensity.
The cavitation machine delivers low-frequency ultrasound waves, which disrupt the cell membrane of the fat cells, forcing them to break down. It’s a great way to ensure you see visible fat reduction after one treatment. However, for optimal fat reduction, multiple treatments are generally required after each treatment with Aqualyx fat-dissolving injection.
Aqualyx and 3D Ultrasound Cavitation Treatment Procedure
Before administering Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections, your skin is cleansed and disinfected. Aqualyx solution is mixed with local anaesthetic, numbing the treated area during the injection process. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and should be relatively painless.
If there are no contraindications and the treatment area is below the chest, 3D Ultrasound Cavitation is then provided. This will enhance the fat reduction you can achieve with Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections. First, ultrasound gel is applied to the treatment area. Next, the area is massaged with the cavitation transducer handpiece to allow the ultrasound waves to penetrate the fatty layer of subcutaneous tissue.
3D Ultrasound Cavitation treatment generally takes 10 to 15 minutes and is painless. Many of our clients say it feels like having a massage and is very therapeutic.
