Fat Dissolving

Fat Dissolving

Fat-dissolving is a technique that helps to get rid of stubborn fat that is stored under the skin in pockets. Fat-dissolving injections are effective with permanent solutions via painless procedures.

This stubborn fat is often unhampered by exercise or dietary changes. Fat-dissolving procedures target the breakdown of these fat membranes that eventually melt and are drained out via the lymphatic system.

Aqualyx/ Desoface is a gel-based fat-dissolving solution in which the active ingredient is sodium deoxycholate (deoxycholic acid), a slow-release sugar-based system. These are capable of dissolving stubborn subcutaneous fat, which is difficult to reduce despite diet and exercise.

Who can have Aqualyx/ Desoface treatment?

Aqualyx/ Desoface is generally regarded as safe for most people, but it is not recommended for clinically overweight people or people who are under 18 or over 60 years of age. The best results can be obtained in patients with average body weight or slightly overweight with local accumulation of fat or the subcutaneous fat.

Who cannot have Aqualyx/ Desoface?

⦁ Pregnant ladies or Breastfeeding mothers
⦁ Diabetic
⦁ Liver disease
⦁ Allergies to Aqualyx/ Desoface
⦁ Kidney disease

Procedure

The treatment is very safe with few side effects. It takes around 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Usually, numbing cream will be applied to the area and local anaesthetic can be mixed it with the solution to reduce any discomfort. Typically 1-3 treatments are required for small areas, such as the jowls and under the chin, and 2-8 treatments for larger areas such as the thighs, upper arms. Treatments are repeated at 3-6 weeks intervals.

Risk and Complications

After treatment, the treated area may be swollen, with some redness and possibly slight bruising that could last up to 3-4 days. Its advised not to have the treatment if you have any planned engagements for 1 week. You can take over-the-counter paracetamol. Ice packs are very helpful after the treatment.

Recovery

These treatments involve minimal pain and downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment, but you should abstain from particularly demanding physical exercise involving the treated areas for seven days. You should avoid any makeup on the treated areas within 12 hours and avoid all direct sources of heat and radiation (sunlight, UV-radiation, sauna, etc.). As the discharged fatty acids are broken down and eliminated, it is very important to drink 1-2 litres of water a day for 48-72 hours. It is crucial that you keep a strict and healthy diet/lifestyle otherwise, your body will store the fat in an alternative fat depot.

 

Results

Aqualyx/ Desoface destroys the fat cells permanently. However, if you gain weight, the fat may get deposited again. The results may be seen after 3 – 6 weeks of treatment and may continue up to 6 months or even later. Although three to eight sessions are generally required to achieve optimum results. Specific results can vary between factors such as patient age since this has an effect on the stability of the cell membranes; younger patients are more likely to maintain results for a longer period.
