AQUALYX FAT DISSOLVING INJECTIONS
PLEASE NOTE THIS MAY TAKE 2-4 TREATMENTS TO ACHIEVE DESIRED RESULTS. A CONSULTATION IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO THESE TREATMENTS.
Chin & Jowls
Thighs (Inner 0r Outer)
Pseudo-Gynocomastia (Man Boobs)
Aqualyx fat dissolving injections is a treatment that is proving to be a popular alternative to other fat reduction methods. The injections can be used to treat a variety of areas on the body, including:
Flanks (area between ribs & hips)
Area Under Bum
Chin & Jowls
Pseudo-gynocomastia in men (moobs)
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are very effective when addressing stubborn, pinch-able deposits of excess fat, and can help to complete the efforts of a healthy and active lifestyle.
The solution is injected directly into the area of concern. By attaching itself to the fat cells in this area, it can start to dissolve the membrane; breaking down and destroying the unwanted fat cell altogether. The liquified fat will then be absorbed by the body and flushed out naturally, through its own lymphatic system.
The outcome may take a few days to develop as the body needs time for the process to work. Depending on your individual situation a series of treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the desired result, when a slimmer, more streamlined profile can be evident.
PSEUDO-GYNOCOMASTIA (Man Boobs)
What Is Pseudo-Gynecomastia?
pseudo-gynecomastia, commonly known as ‘Man Boobs’ or ‘Moobs’, is the result of having excess fat situated over the pectoral muscles on the chest. The term pseudo-gynecomastia has developed from the original medical condition of gynecomastia. From appearances, the conditions can appear the same, with excess tissue the impression of male breasts. Usually, men who have unusually large breasts will find that this is caused by excessive fat. It is common for this to develop to a slight extent as men age, but fatty breasts can be common even in younger men if they become obese.
However, the underlying causes differ. Gynecomastia develops due to a hormonal imbalance of oestrogen & testosterone, which can cause the breast tissue to swell & sometimes become painful. ‘Man Boobs’ are formed due to pseudo-gynecomastia., which is caused by fat deposition.
Can You Reduce Male Breasts With Fat Dissolving Injections?
Excessive fat around male breasts can be unattractive and many men decide to tackle the issue using liposuction, however this problem can also be treated with Fat Dissolving Injections which are less invasive & risk free. In theory, the excess fat storage leading to pseudo-gynecomastia may be reduced by general weight loss. This is occasionally achieved with the combination of a healthy diet and regular aerobic activity. However, healthy dieting and exercise may not able to target fat loss in a specific area When localised areas of fat storage, such as the man boobs, remain stubborn, Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are an effective non-invasive option of treatment.
The breasts are one of the four most commonly treated areas on men, the others being the flanks, the abdomen, chin and jowls area.
Men who have a lot of fat on their breasts can achieve a dramatic improvement in the appearance of their physique following Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections.
Is The Treatment Suitable For Overweight Clients As A Weight Loss Method?
No, Aqualyx is aimed at reducing stubborn pockets of fat.
Who Is Suitable For Aqualyx Fat dissolving Injections?
It is suitable for clients who do not want the more invasive liposuction or laser Lipo treatments & do not have large amounts of fat to remove. This treatment is not designed as a solution for removing significant amounts of fat, or an alternative to exercise. A person who finds that a small amount of stubborn fat is affecting the contouring of their body, despite eating a balanced diet and taking regular exercise, is more likely to get the results they seek.
Clients need to be over the age of 18. The treatment is also not suitable for pregnant or lactating women, or those with a pathological condition (for example: polycystic ovaries)
Are The Results Immediate?
This treatment does require some patience - most clients notice a visible difference within six weeks with subsequent treatments further improving the overall result.
How many treatments are required?
This is dependant on the area being treated, most Clients require two or four treatments, 3-4 weeks apart.
Is This Treatment safe?
This treatment is growing in popularity and is often the preferred choice, compared with other methods of fat reduction. It is considered to be less invasive than more traditional solutions, with virtually no downtime. A trained & qualified practitioner should be administering the treatment at a verified and reputable clinic, in order to ensure the treatment is carried out safely and effectively. Mel has 25 years experience in the beauty industry & is fully trained & qualified in all areas of Fat Dissolving.
How Does It Work?
Adipocytes or fat cells are broken down with the use of sodium deoxycholate solution (Aqualyx). This causes a localised inflammatory response from the body. The inflammatory response is vital and allows the destroyed fat cells to be removed and excreted via the kidneys. Once the fat cells have been destroyed by the solution the effect is permanent.
Aqualyx works by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling that lasts 3-5 days. This swelling can be obvious when having facial treatments (Chin). During this time you may want to organise time off work/social events.
What Does It Feel Like, Does It Hurt?
The area will feel warm, you may experience an itching, stinging or slight burning sensation. A local anaesthetic is added to the solution so there is minimal pain during the treatment, some clients don’t feel anything at all during their treatment.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
The outcome may take a few days to develop as the body needs time for the process to work. A reduction in fat deposits can usually be seen after just one treatment, however between three & eight sessions are sometimes required on larger areas to see the optimal effect. The speed at which results are seen will vary depending on the stability of the cell membranes; younger clients are more likely to see results after a longer period. Typically results appear within weeks to months, and keep improving as additional treatments are administered.
Results & Clients experience may vary. These are dependant on a number of factors such as age, medical history & lifestyle.
What Are The Side Effects?
Minimal side effects have been reported globally since its introduction, but Clients can experience a little skin irritation - red, tight & slight itching. In the few weeks that follow your treatment, you may experience numbness, redness, swelling and bruising at the treatment site. As these effects should be minor and temporary, any prolonged reaction should be reported to Mel who will be able to help. The treated area may feel tender & firm for up to eight weeks following your treatment.
When Can I have My Next Treatment?
All side effects must have fully resolved before a further treatment can be preformed. Usually Clients can book their next treatment 3-4 weeks later. Please schedule a complimentary review six weeks following your last treatment.
What Is The Aftercare?
