At the Skin Clinic here within The Boutik Salon, we’re passionate about helping you to look and feel your best. We know that sometimes, no matter how much you eat right or exercise, it can be hard to shift stubborn fat deposits in certain areas of the body. For some people, it’s a little belly pooch; for others, it might be a double chin or back fat.
But don’t worry — there are solutions for this!
There are several areas of the body that can hold onto stubborn fat through no fault of our own, but many people feel that their confidence would sky-rocket if they could find an effective way to eliminate these fat pockets — so what are the options? Surgery is an obvious choice, but it can be expensive and scary. Invasive treatment isn’t right for everyone and going under the knife is something most would feel apprehensive about. For many people, liposuction or cosmetic surgery, in general, is not an option they want to explore so they may consider non-surgical weight loss treatments as a low-risk alternative.
What Is Dissolve or Fat-Dissolving Injection?
Have you ever wondered how you can get rid of stubborn fat? Well, there’s an injection for that!
Fat-dissolving injections are designed to target localised fat deposits and aren’t a substitute for losing weight. This treatment is intended to complement a healthy lifestyle, which means patients should aim to maintain a balanced diet and exercise routine alongside injections.
When you’re trying to lose weight, it can be hard to find a treatment that will help you get the results you need. One of the most popular treatments for fat removal is Aqualyx.
Aqualyx is a non-surgical fat dissolving injection treatment that provides targeted results without the need for surgery or liposuction. The procedure requires minimal downtime, too, so you can go back to work the same day as receiving treatment. It’s not uncomfortable or invasive, which means patients experience minimal worry or stress before the procedure. It can be used to treat the following areas:
- Tummy bulges
- Inner and outer thighs
- Double chin
- Back fat
- Love handles
- Buffalo hump (behind the neck)
- Chest fat
- Upper arms
How Do Products Like Aqualyx® work?
Aqualyx® is a revolutionary new treatment that uses Deoxycholic acid (DC) to dissolve fat cells, permanently.
It’s the latest in non-invasive body contouring procedures, and it’s easy to use—no surgery or downtime required! You can get results without pain or discomfort, and you can enjoy your treatments right here at The Boutik salon.
Aqualyx® works by injecting Deoxycholic acid (DC) into the subcutaneous layer of fat. This disrupts the fat cells and causes them to dissolve permanently. The fat cells will then be naturally released and drained away by your lymphatic system, which is why we always recommend drinking plenty of water after your treatment and avoiding alcohol too.
Your comfort is always a priority, and you won’t feel too much discomfort when receiving fat-dissolving injections. An anaesthetic agent is added into the Aqualyx solution to help relieve any discomfort, and our consultants will also use topical numbing cream on your skin before injection.
How Do I Know If I’m Suitable for Fat Dissolve?
Have you ever wondered, “Am I a suitable candidate for fat-dissolving injections?”
The answer to this question depends on how suitable a candidate you are for this type of treatment. Injection lipolysis may be a good fit for you if you’re struggling to achieve your desired weight despite having made healthy lifestyle changes. For example, if you’ve tried changing your diet and exercising more but are still struggling to get rid of localised pockets of fat.
If you’re close to your ideal body weight but need an extra push to achieve the look you want, Aqualyx is an excellent option. If you’re severely overweight, a different non-surgical weight loss procedure such as a medical weight loss treatment may be the right fit for you.
Aqualyx is suitable for patients who are within 10% of their ideal weight, but who have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It can also be used for those who have already lost weight but still have some areas of stubborn fat that will not budge.
In order to determine whether Aqualyx is suitable for your needs, please make sure you book in for a consultation here at The Boutik Skin Clinic.
How Long Do Fat-Dissolving Injections Take To Work And For Results To Show?
You’ll need to wait between three and four weeks between each fat-dissolving injection treatment. You won’t see the results immediately after each procedure, as your body has to naturally drain away the dissolved fat deposits as part of its normal process.
Most people see results around eight weeks after their first treatment, but this will also depend on other factors. For example, it can take longer if you have a lot of fat to lose, or if you’re not making the lifestyle changes we recommend.
Whether you want a non-invasive procedure that requires little downtime, or something more invasive with a longer recovery time, we have what you need.
It’s important to note that Aqualyx isn’t just about losing weight. We want to help you reach your healthiest self by providing an easy way to get rid of stubborn fat without having to starve yourself and exercise every day.
How Safe Is Fat Dissolve or Fat-Dissolving Injections?
Aqualyx is considered a safe form of fat-removal treatment and is licensed for use in the UK. It is approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
Minimal side effects have been reported globally since the introduction of Aqualyx. Patients may notice minor skin irritation, bruising and swelling in the injection site, which will ease within a few days. This procedure requires little to no downtime, and you can go about your day as usual following treatment.
Aqualyx works by dissolving fat cells in the body using an injection of sodium chloride solution into these areas. This process destroys the fat cells while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. The body then naturally eliminates these destroyed cells over several weeks through its lymphatic system.
How Much Fat Can Be Removed?
In an ideal world, every person would be able to get the perfect body they’re looking for. Unfortunately, it simply isn’t possible for everyone. That’s why we offer a range of treatments for those who want to improve their appearance and feel better about themselves.
The amount of fat dissolved may vary depending on the area injections are administered, how many sessions you take and how your body responds to the treatment. Enhanced results can be encouraged by drinking lots of water to help with lymphatic drainage and exercising alongside treatment.
We always recommend talking things through with Abigail before or after booking so you have a clear idea of what to expect from your personalised treatment plan.
