What It Is
Despite our best efforts, it can sometimes prove impossible to shift those stubborn pockets of fat that take up residence on several areas of the body. This is why Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections have fast become the go-to solution for those struggling to manage the appearance of double chins, muffin tops, “man boobs” and a plethora of other undesirable bodily features.
At La Fuente, we specialise in the administration of Aqualyx directly into the face as a way of breaking down the fat cells that make up a double chin. This is a recommended form of treatment for patients who have been unable to get rid of such deposits of fat on the strength of healthy eating and a regular exercise regime alone.
Both safe and effective, Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections are composed of a special formula designed to liquefy hard-to-shift fat cells and eliminate them from the body for good. This formula contains several different plant-based compounds and is spearheaded by an ingredient known as deoxycholic acid, a natural substance that plays a part in the body’s normal fat digestion processes.
When the fat cells in question are injected with Aqualyx, they are broken apart and gradually removed from the body via the lymphatic system. This is a close-knit network of tissues and organs dedicated to overseeing the elimination of unwanted materials from the body.
Am I Suitable For Treatment?
As alluded to above, Aqualyx should not be seen as a substitute for more traditional methods of weight loss and is only advised for patients of a healthy weight looking to address the existence of a double chin.
Aqualyx is also unsuitable for people with diabetes, liver disease or kidney disease, as well as those currently awaiting treatment for a skin condition. Patients with excess or saggy skin may benefit from one of our other facial contouring procedures.
Book an Appointment
Aqualyx patients can expect to experience pain similar to that felt during a normal injection. If this sounds unappealing, we may be able to offer you a topical cream or local anaesthetic to numb the pain.
Results are best seen at the eight-week mark, with younger patients typically noticing changes before this point in time.
Fat can be dissolved after just one treatment, but this is dependent on you as an individual. As a general rule, we normally recommend up to three sessions for the reduction of a double chin.
Patients should allow for a few days of recovery time after this procedure, with chin swelling potentially visible for up to two weeks.
