Injection Lipolysis

Aqualyx Treatment - Injection Lipolysis, Fat Freezing, Medical Weight loss

We all have areas of stubborn fat that we struggle to get rid of. For some of us, no matter how much we diet or exercise, we simply can’t get rid of certain pockets of fat. For many people, fat deposits are actually genetic too – meaning you will always have those pockets of fat – unless you remove them with a procedure like this. 

If those fatty deposits knock your confidence on a daily basis, and you find yourself feeling self conscious because of them, maybe it’s time for a change? Why not take a step toward the body you want and the shape you want, and opt for Injection Lipolysis. These injections can help you contour your body, and fill you with much needed body confidence.

What is Injection Lipolysis?

Injection lipolysis entered the UK market like a storm. It is an EU-approved, revolutionary product that helps to dissolve local fat. It may remove unflattering and stubborn areas of fat without the need for liposuction or surgery. Injection lipolysis works by hydrolysing the wall of the fat cells and therefore making it release it’s lipid content within. This then breaks down the fat cells and lets them be removed from the body via natural processes. 

Injection Lipolysis is a flexible treatment as it can be used almost anywhere in the body and is particularly popular in reducing the fatty deposits such as upper arms, double chins and muffin tops.

Popular areas for Injection Lipolysis:

  • Double chin
  • Upper arms
  • Buffalo humps
  • Chest fat (in men)
  • Lower abdomen
  • Muffin top Hips
  • Pre jowl sulcus
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees 

 

Studies have proven that injection lipolysis, such as Aqualyx causes splitting of 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 desired result is achieved. On average 3-5 sessions are required depending on the volume of the fat deposit.

Why choose Injection Lipolysis? 

Instead of surgery or invasive treatments, which can require weeks off work and are also painful procedures, Injection Lipolysis is a treatment that can be done with minimal downtime and minimum time investment. Despite the short treatment time, it delivers powerful and impactful results for patients and you’ll see the fat deposits lessening over weeks after the treatment. 

 

For people who want fat loss focussed on a specific area, or need help ‘contouring’ their shape – Injection Lipolysis is also a fantastic choice.

Does It Hurt? 

Your doctor / practitioner will numb the area locally for you prior to making any injections, so you’ll feel very little pain or discomfort. As with any needle procedure or injection, there is risk of redness, bruising or swelling afterwards – but this is completely normal with Injection Lipolysis. 

If at any point you’re in pain, or feel unsure about any after-effects, it’s important to speak to you doctor. 

Will I need to take time off work?

Most people don’t need time off work for Injection Lipolysis, and some patients even choose to go straight back to work afterwards. You may want to take a day off for convenience, but if you have your treatment on a weekend, you’ll need no time off for recovery. 

How many treatments do you need? 

This depends from patient to patient – but most people will need at least 2 treatments to see the results they’re after. Treatments are recommended between 4-6 weeks apart, which is usually how long any swelling can potentially last.
