Fat Dissolving Injections (Aqualyx).

Aqualyx solution is injected into the treatment area whereby the cholanic acid sodium salt of Aqualyx alters the surface tension of the fat cells and increases the permeability of the membrane.

An ultrasound device is then applied over the surface of the skin in the targeted area and this causes the movement of liquids both inside and outside the fat cells.

The fat cells start to balloon and break up, leading to the drainage of micro droplets of fatty liquid into the body, which is then metabolised through the lymphatic system and excreted through the urine.

The time taken for a treatment session will depend upon the size of the area and indication being treated.

Treatment can take approximately 30 minutes per treatment and you will typically require 2 – 8 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Some people may see significant results after 1 or 2 sessions.

Treatment for fat pockets underneath the neck and chin, for example, may require 1 – 3 treatments of 2 – 3 injections, while treatment for fat pockets on the hips and thighs may require 8 treatments.

Ultrasound Cavitation (Non-Surgical Body Contouring)

Ultrasound cavitation is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses ultrasonic waves to turn fat cells into free fatty acids, which are easier for the body to get rid of.

The midsection, upper arms, thighs, hips, and chin area can be targeted with these low-frequency ultrasound waves, which penetrate the skin and create bubbles around fat deposits. The bubbles cause the weak fat cells to burst, leaking out the fatty acids. The body then expels the fatty acids naturally through the urinary tract and lymphatic system.

The ultrasound cavitation procedure reduces the circumference of the area being treated. It contours the body, smooths, tightens, tones and reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, in specific troubled areas.

Weight management is a journey involving a healthy diet, exercise, stress management, and regular sleep patterns.

There are no long-term, weight loss benefits associated with Ultra Cavitation, or any procedure that works similarly. You can melt and destroy tons of fat cells, but if your diet includes more calories than the body needs, extra fat will be stored in the remaining cells.

The client relaxes on the treatment bed while a hand held flat probe device is glided over the marked areas delivering the focused ultra- sound energy. Most clients require between 10 and 12 treatments, but many see up to one to two inches of circumference reduction after only five treatments. Each treatment session lasts approximately 30 to 50 minutes.

To get the most out of your treatments, drinking water, maintaining a healthy diet, and exercising regularly is recommended between sessions. In fact, it is important to drink at least 3 pints (1.5 L) of water before and after ultrasound cavitation treatments in order to help the body expel the fatty acids. A low fat, low carb diet, for at least a day before the procedure is recommended in order to help you better burn fatty acids during the treatment and just after. Following the treatment, the client can immediately resume daily activities. Treatments require no anesthetics and no downtime.

The standard interval between individual Ultra Cavitation treatments is 72 hours to allow enough time for the body to recover.
