Fat-dissolving injections may be a relative newcomer to non-surgical treatments, but it seems that they are suddenly catching on.
Manchester-based SkinViva Clinic has noted a significant surge in interest in the treatment over the last year, with traffic to the website page increasing by over 460%, a massive increase.
The treatment is known as Aqualyx, which is the brand name of manufacturer Allergan, who also produce popular BOTOX wrinkle-relaxing injections and Juvederm dermal fillers.
Aqualyx injections work by causing areas of fat to break down and pass through the body as urine. It is a gel-based solution that is injected into localised pockets of fat, where it dissolves the fat cells. The body then naturally eliminates the broken-down fat cells.
The treatment is can be considered as an effective alternative to liposuction in the right circumstances. Fat cells are permanently destroyed, so with sensible eating and activity levels, excess fat can be banished for good. Yet unlike liposuction, there is no down time.
Fat removing injections sound like the stuff of sci-fi and fantasy. Many of us recognise that shifting those extra pounds is very hard work. It can cost us dearly in time, money or in some cases both. So is the notion that a simple injection could melt the fat away far too good to be true?
Certainly fat reduction injections should not be considered as an alternative to healthy eating and lifestyle. There are massive benefits for your health in maintaining a sensible weight and having nutritionally balanced diet with appropriate portion sizes, accompanied by regular exercise.
Where Aqualyx injections have a role to play is in trouble-shooting specific pockets of fat, so while they’re not intended as a weight-loss method, they can be considered for body shaping and fat-busting.
As well as fat reduction and body shaping, the injections also stimulate skin tightening with the solution starting to work immediately upon injection. This means that the finished result can look smoother as well as slimmer.
