It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.
The injection contains plant polymers, which bind 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.
The results of an Aqualyx treatment are permanent under the condition of maintaining a constant weight measurement (i.e. assuming you do not gain weight). Once the freed fatty acids have been processed through the body’s lymphatic system, they don’t reappear.
