Fat Reduction Treatments
The human body naturally stores fat in order to supply energy in times of restraint. We distribute our subcutaneous body fat by a genetically determined pattern. In almost all cases this inherent distribution cannot be remedied by a special diet or increased physical exercise.
This means that fat on our stomachs, saddlebags or 'bingo wings' can be really hard to shift.
MEDfacials has two non-invasive options to help shift those stubborn areas of fat.
Aqualyx® is an effective and safe fat dissolving treatment. It contains an active ingredient called Desoxycholic-acid, which is a naturally occurring acid within the human body, that has an essential function concerning the digestion of fat.
The solution is a slow release sugar-based system, in which the biological half-life is reduced to minutes, which results in minimal side effects.
Developed by Professor Motolese, Aqualyx® has been available internationally since 2009, and over 2,000,000 vials have been used for patient treatments in 49 countries worldwide. Professor Motolose developed a technique, known as ‘Aqualysis ™’ or ‘Aquaplasty™’ which consists of depositing the solution into localised areas of fat such as:
Aqualyx® injections can be used in a number of places on the body, including:
It also works as an effective treatment against pseudo-gynomastia in men.
To assist in the dissipation of Aqualyx® throughout the localised fat cells, we can combine the treatments with an cavitation ultrasound device called Promax Lipo (see more below)
Aqualyx® injections are suitable for patients who want to avoid the more invasive options of liposuction or laser lipo treatments.
ProMax Lipo Treatment
ProMax Lipo utilises a powerful combination of three-market leading technologies for pain-free, rapid treatments with instant results. It is safe and clinically proven with low downtime (you can expect to return home immediately after your procedure) and delivers long-lasting results (12-24 months). Now available at MEDfacials, Cornwall, it is performed by leading Aesthetic Practitioners with unrivalled expertise.
ProMax lipo can be used for:
*Face & Next Lifting
Our revolutionary non-surgical technologies deliver unrivalled treatments for body shaping and fat reduction, targeting three key areas: cellulite reduction, inch loss, and skin tightening.
Our two-step, non-invasive liposuction treatment combines ultrasonic cavitation, radio frequencies and, where necessary for optimum results, vacuum technologies to treat stubborn areas of fat on the body and face.
1) Ultrasonic cavitation
ProMax Lip selectively targets the body's fat cells without affecting neighbouring tissue. Sound waves penetrate deep into the fat layer causing vibrations and the formation of microbubbles within the interstitial fluid. As these bubbles collapse, the resulting shock wave leads to a temporary change in the fat cell membrane allowing lipids (fats) to escape the cell. The fats are then removed via the body’s own immune system over the following 2 to 3 days. This technology is perfect for stubborn areas of fat that prove unresponsive to exercise, such as the abdomen, upper arms and outer thighs.
2) Multi-polar Radio Frequency & Vacuum
Using controlled waves of energy to heat the fat cells, this technology increases circulation, reduces the appearance of cellulite and increases fat cell metabolism. The thermal energy also results in instant collagen contraction and creates long-term improvement in collagen fibres for firmer, tighter skin. Vacuum massage technology provides powerful lymphatic drainage to process the lipids released during cavitation and remove toxins to further improve the appearance of cellulite.
3) Bipolar Radio Frequency
This technology emits waves at just the right frequency to cause dermal heating within facial tissues. The result? Instant tightening and lifting! This is perfect for use around the eyes, jawline and neck. Promax Lipo provides instant tightening of the skin and also encourages longer-term collagen stimulation for a younger, fresher appearance over time. The introduction of vacuum at this stage further improves circulation and removes toxins for a brighter complexion and a reduction in dark circles.
What can I expect after my treatment?
You may experience some mild heat, swelling and redness on the skin, which usually lasts for only a few hours; your practitioner may apply a soothing gel to cool where required.
To get the most out of your treatment we require that you increase your water intake before and after the treatment, therefore you may notice slightly more lavatory visits than usual!
Exercise is an essential element to obtain the best results, we would ask that you exercise within 72 hours of the treatment to maximise the effectiveness of the treatment.
