Aqualyx is an injectable compound solution of the deoxycholate family that targets localised areas of fat such as saddlebags, thighs, stomachs, chins and knees which are often resistant to exercise and diet. Aqualyx could also be used to treat ‘buffalo hump’ and pseudo-gynecomastia in men.
Prof. Pasquale Motolese was first who utilised the fat-dissolving effect of this acid and found it useful in liquefying of the fat cell, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
Aqualyx is administered by injecting the solution to the identified area via special cannular. Patients need to repeat the treatment between two and eight times depending on the required result and every three to four weeks. After each treatment, a patient can expect some swelling, bruising, redness and tenderness in the area treated, which will subside after four to six days and could be managed with mild painkillers and support garments.
Aqualyx treatment of localised adiposity in combination with colonic irrigation is a great way to get rid of excess weight.
