Intralipotherapy – Fat Dissolving Treatment, Advance Aesthetics, Luxembourg

Intralipotherapy is an aesthetic advancement in fat dissolving treatments which are in practice to dissolve the subcutaneous deposits of adipose tissues in specific areas of the body. The treatment plan targets the accumulated fats that are non-responsive to the low calorie diet and physical activities. Intralipotherapy includes fat-dissolving (adipocytolytic) solutions having natural ingredients to cause lysis of fat cells. The fat dissolving procedure is safe where adipolytic solutions such as deoxycholic acid (Desobody, Aqualyx) are injected into the stubborn fat pockets, resulting in fat lysis and skin tightening. The lipolytic injections such as Desobody and Aqualyx destroy the fat cells by damaging their cell membrane and liquefying the fats at the treatment area. The liquefied breakdown products of fats remove naturally by the body’s lymphatic system.

What is Aqualyx? 

Aqualyx is an emerging fat dissolving injectable treatment that has successfully proven to remove fats from the areas such as the chin and hips that are non-responsive to diet and all types of exercises. The injectable compound Aqualyx is made from the deoxycholate family of acids. The product is also commonly called Motolese’s solution, named after the scientist who introduced it. The acid content of the Aqualyx solution destroys the fat cells in the target areas of the body.

 Plastic surgeons also use it to give extra contour to the body after liposuction or other fat-removing procedures. The active ingredients of Aqualyx include buffering chemicals, modified compounds of the deoxycholic group of acids, red microalgae sugars, sodium chloride, water, and other sugar substances. In addition, the fat-dissolving solution has proved effective for treating Pseudo gynecomastia in men where the extra fat tissues grow at the chest areas and appear as a breast.

  • Don’t go for other aesthetic treatments for two weeks in the same area

How Long does the Intralipotherapy Procedure Last? 

Injectable treatment of intralipotherapy lasts for thirty minutes to treat the smaller areas like the chin, whereas sites like the abdomen and thighs take longer that may last up to an hour. The procedure is painless; you may only experience itching, redness, and mild swelling because the product disrupts the fat cells to release their contents resulting in adipose necrosis and reduction in the size of fat cells. Take the initial swelling and redness as a normal body response to intralipotherapy. The redness and discomfort disappear within two hours following the treatment. 

Results are noticeable after one month, and the final results will take approximately two months of Desobody to show its effects. Following active lifestyle and diet routines help you to retain results.
