Aqualyx (Intralipotherapy). Localized fat

What is Aqualyx or Intralipotherapy?




The accumulation of fat in certain areas of the body contour causes a localized increase in volume and a loss of harmony, being one of the most frequent consultations in aesthetic medicine. Localized adiposity is characterized by being resistant to diet and physical activity since it does not depend on the degree of overweight and can occur in thin people.


Aqualyx is a microgelatinous solution that achieves the death of fat cells because it has a detergent effect that causes the inflammation of these cells and their subsequent destruction. The fact that we break the fat cells and simply the fat they contain will provide us with a much longer lasting effect, so Aqualyx is considered a non-surgical solution to localized fat having similar effects to liposuction. To achieve this effect we will have to apply the product just in the fatty tissue that causes this increase in contour by performing a specific technique known as intralipotherapy.


Intralipotherapy is performed by fan infiltration and is quick and painless, but it requires specific training by the doctor who applies it, it is absolutely necessary that the person who performs this method is trained in it and knows perfectly the process and the product.


How is the Aqualyx technique performed?


One of the requirements to be able to perform this technique is that the localized fat where we are going to apply the Aqualyx has a minimum thickness of 1.5-2 centimeters, for this reason we must first perform a measurement by ultrasound that will allow us to determine whether or not the intralipotherapy procedure is allowed. We can also check the results of the process by means of ultrasound control.


After the infiltration it is advisable to use compression garments that are placed immediately after the procedure and maintained for 3-7 days, being in the first 24 hours totally recommended.


There is no specific number of sessions, as these must be adapted to the characteristics and response of each patient, but to obtain evident results, between 3 and 4 sessions may be necessary, although sometimes a single session is sufficient. The space between sessions should be about 4 weeks to allow time for the inflammatory process to disappear and the remaining fatty tissue to be assessed.


After the application of Aqualyx, redness of the area is common and some patients report mild to moderate pain, bruising may also appear. All these symptoms improve with compression garments and disappear without treatment in about 48 hours. The patient can return to normal life immediately after the procedure, but intense physical activity or impact on the treated area is not recommended during the first week.
