Aqualyx: Alternative to liposuction?
Posted on Feb 25 2014 | IANS
London, Feb 25 : Aqualyx, a new treatment to help rid body fat, has come out -- Claiming to be an effective alternative to liposuction, the treatment involves injections that "break down cells that you then pass through urine".
A water solution is injected into problematic areas around the body like thighs, stomach, knees, chin, buttocks, stomach, back and even your neck, breaking down excess fat cells, allowing the body to absorb them into the bloodstream - and then pee them out, reports dailymail.co.uk.
It contains plant polymers, which binds with the cell walls of the fat tissue before rupturing and releasing the fat to be dissolved.
The formula liquefies the fat cell which is then eliminated when you urinate over a three-week period.
Makers say the solution completely destroys the fat cells, so they can't grow back.
Describing its new treatment, Mills Medical Service say it "gives you the body you've always dreamed of without fearing that the fat will return".
The treatment, which claims to be the only registered fat removal injection on the market, calims it has no downtime (other than slight bruising and swelling for 48 hours).
"Aqualyx isn't an injection for weight loss; it is used for contouring the body and slimming down those stubborn fat areas. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, the fat won't grow back either," say the brand representative.
In liposuction, fat is removed from different parts of the body through cosmetic surgery.
