You pay close attention to a wholesome lifestyle by exercising regularly and eating healthily, yet that one pad of fat that troubles you most will not disappear. The cause for this lies within our genetics and the special structure of our fat cells in certain areas. The human body naturally stores fat in order to supply energy in times of hunger. Fat cells located in the subcutaneous fat tissue are difficult to diminish, as only their contents and overall volume can be altered, but not the fat cells themselves. These particular fat cells cannot be reduced and continuously serve as a reliable depot for the body to store fat.
HOW DOES AQUALYX™ WORK?
AQUALYX™ contains desoxycholan-acid, a secondary bile acid. With the assistance of bacteria our body is able to produce this acid itself in the liver in order to aid the digestion of fat. The fat-dissolving effect of this acid was utilised by Prof. Pasquale Motolese, the inventor of AQUALYX™, who developed a synthetically manufactured variant.
The active substance locks on to the fat cell walls and starts to operate, resulting in the cell wall becoming instable and releasing the fatty acid that is stored within. Cell residue is removed by the body’s defenses and the non-attached fatty acids are metabolised and converted into energy. nd As the released fatty acids are converted into additional energy, it is especially important that you keep to a strict and healthy diet, otherwise your body will simply store the fat in an alternative fat depot.
HOW IS AQUALYX™ TREATMENT CARRIED OUT ?
Using thin, flexible cannulas, AQUALYX™ is injected directly into the subcutaneous fat tissue. The treatment is virtually pain free, as fat tissue is almost free of sensation and AQUALYX™ contains an additional local anaesthetic. Immediately after the injection the affected area may redden and swell to a slight degree. As with any treatment with a hypodermic needle, minor bruising might develop. All these are expected side effects that subside within a couple of days after the treatment.
Do not apply any cosmetics onto the treated area within the following 12 hours and avoid all direct sources of heat and radiation (sunlight, UV-radiation, sauna etc.)
Further more you should abstain from particularly demanding physical exercise for 7 days.
