During this procedure, Aqualyx is injected directly into the fatty tissue. The solution then surrounds the fat cells and destroys them. This can be used to reduce fat cells in multiple areas of the face such as double chin and fat around the jaw.
During each session, the topical numbing cream is applied on the targeted area and patients receive multiple fat dissolving injections (Aqualyx) in problematic areas around the chin and neck or in other areas of the body. In this procedure maximum dose is used.
This procedure takes 15 minutes. The number of injections and sessions depend on the severity of the problem and the area which is being treated.
At least two or three sessions approximately 6-8 week apart are required. For larger areas such as abdomen, arms or thighs additional sessions may be required.
Swelling can occur for 2-6 weeks following treatment.
The results of this treatment are <strong>permanent.</strong>
