Aqualyx Featured on ‘How to Lose Weight Well’
Channel 4, 15th January 2018
In the latest episode of diet and health programme ‘How to Lose Weight Well’, Dr Xand van Tulleken investigated how Aqualyx fat-melting injections can be used to get rid of a double chin.
Many dieters struggle with pockets of hard-to-shift fat. Aqualyx is a non-surgical treatment which works to target those difficult areas.
Dr Xand van Tulleken explains:
“Many of us have troublesome bulge or two that we just can’t seem to shift regardless of diet or exercise. What if there were a magic injection that could rid us of these troublesome areas for good?
“Well a new drug called Aqualyx claims to do exactly that.”
The programme follows a patient having Aqualyx injections to get rid of a double chin, for a sharper and more masculine profile. He says:
“I’d really like to have a more visible jawline. A bit more masculine would be good.”
How does Aqualyx Work?
Dr Xand investigated how the product actually works by visiting practitioners in their clinic. The doctor explains:
“They work by changing the permeability of the fat cell membrane, so that the fat cells let in a lot of water and effectively they burst. Once they’ve burst it’s your body’s job to clear them away like it would any other cells that have been damaged or are dead.”
Aqualyx is made of a modified compound of cholanic acid (from the deoxycholate family). Deoxycholate is a major component of the product. This is a detergent, which is a derivative of bile acid as found in the stomach. The substance works to dissolve away the outer cell membrane, causing damage to the fat cells so that they can be expelled by the body.
The programme showed a patient having Aqualyx double chin treatment, which involved a series of injections into the chin area.
Results are not instant and develop over the following weeks. In the early stages, there was swelling as the Aqualyx causes inflammation.
However, at 2 weeks, he said:
“I’m impressed with the results already and it’s only been two weeks.”
By week 9 he was delighted with the end result, saying:
“…it’s there, it’s just everything that I wanted. I’ve got the contouring in my jawline that I wanted, the chin’s disappeared, everything that I was expecting from the treatment seems to have happened.”
Aqualyx Fat Reduction Injections, Northampton
Aqualyx treatment was launched at Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre in 2013, where treatment costs £250-300 per session for a small area e.g. chin. Dr John Tanqueray recommends 3-7 sessions for a good result to be obtained.
Isolated areas where fat is inclined to gather respond very well to treatment. These include:
- Upper arms
- ‘Love handles’
- Inner thighs
Injections are made into the area of built-up fat cells. This triggers the fat to dissolve, which creates a sleeker profile and a more youthful look to the lower face.
