Through an injectable solution, Aqualix®, the gradual breakdown of fat cells in a particular anatomical area is achieved. This is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
What is Aqualix ®?
Is a solution that produce adipocyte lysis (destruction of fat cells).
The Intralipotherapy with Aqualix ® is used in men and women as an alternative to liposuction.
Body regions where it is applied are: abdomen, flanks, inner and outer part of the thigh, the lower part of the knee, upper extremities and chin.
Using a small needle, Aqualix ® is injected in small doses directly to the fat accumulation. Its action causes lysis (destruction) of adipose cells in the desired area.
