Getting your Dream Body with Aqualyx

Published on: July 5, 2015

Even with healthy eating and plenty of exercise, many of us still have stubborn areas of fat that are impossible to reduce, especially women who can store extra fat due to hormones. Previously the only solution would be painful liposuction or covering up trouble zones but thanks to advances in technology we can now offer Aqualyx body sculpting at the London Cosmetic Clinic. Developed by the late aesthetic surgeon Professor Motolese, Aqualyx is a non-invasive method of injecting a micro-gelantuous, hydrous solution into problem areas such as the thighs and tummy to liquefy the fat cells and release the stored lipids. This solution is both bio-compatible and biodegradable and works on the subcutaneous layer of fat, which is the top layer of fat that can sometimes be localised in areas, causing a lumpy silhouette and hard-to-shift problem areas.

When you lose fat from diet and exercise, your body releases stored energy from its fat cells which then shrink but the fat cells remain and can refill when you consume excess calories, you can also gain more fat cells but your body cannot get rid of them. Aqualyx dissolves the fat cells so, when combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, your body keeps off the fat that has been released. In addition to this, you cannot naturally spot reduce, i.e. you can lose fat but you have no control over where it is lost from, but with Aqualyx you can choose which problem areas you want to slim down. No more spending hours doing leg lifts without shifting those saddlebags!

It may be tempting to have Aqualyx injections straight before a holiday but you must avoid subjecting the treated area to extreme hot or cold temperatures or direct sunlight so saunas, sun beds and hot climates should be avoided until the area has recovered. You should also avoid applying cosmetics for at least 12 hours afterwards and avoid physical exercises for 4 to 5 days. Straight after your Aqualyx treatment you may experience some swelling and mild discomfort, itching and burning sensations but these will subside. It may take up to 2 weeks to see the full results of the treatment as the fat cells need to dissolve and then get released by the body as opposed to liposuction which is more invasive and can leave scarring as the fat is removed directly from the body. The swelling also needs to subside so the treated area will start to look a lot slimmer after about a week.

When you have your consultation we will discuss with you what areas you would like treated and how many sessions you may need. Some people see dramatic results after just one session and we use an ultrasound to help massage the solution into your fat cells and help it to work even more efficiently. Aqualyx is a safe and non-invasive method of getting your dream body without risking scarring or causing a huge disruption to your day-to-day life. We are more than happy to discuss any queries and answer any questions you may have about the treatment and the aftercare procedure to give you complete peace of mind.
