Always on the look-out for new and effective technologies, Trudy and the team have recently launched a new body treatment at ASC.
Aqualyx® is an advanced non-surgical, minimally invasive body contouring system designed to permanently dissolve localised fat deposits. Having recently received the all-important CE mark for use in the UK, this is very much the treatment du jour. As an alternative to liposuction, what are the pros and cons?
Weight loss is naturally a huge concern for many clients but it is important to note that Aqualyx is a contouring treatment as opposed to a weight loss solution. It is designed to create a sculpted physique by dissolving pockets of unwanted fat. The Aqualyx solution itself is made up of a variety of plant polymers which are added to water to enable it to be administered via a canula (needle). By injecting Aqualyx into the targeted areas (hips, saddle bags, thighs, chin, stomach), it liquefies existing fat cells which are naturally eliminated via the lymphatic system over the course of a few weeks. There should be minimal down-time after the procedure and a course of 3 – 5 appointments should result in perceivable changes.
It is important to note that poor diet or lack of exercise can create new fat cells. However, the fat cells that are destroyed by Aqualyx® are removed permanently. For more information and to book an initial consultation, call us on 0208 346 6567.
