Aqualyx Injection Lipolyses
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 or fat dissolving injections. 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 a 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 its 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 fat dissolving injection 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
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.
