What are cellulite and fat reducing injections?

 

At the Urban Aesthetix Clinic, there are two injectable options to treat the appearance of cellulite and reduce fat: mesotherapy or Aqualyx®, usually followed by treatment with VelaShape III to contour and shape your body.

 

Mesotherapy targets problem areas of the body through a series of micro-injections that contain active ingredients to replace naturally occurring vitamins and nutrients to stimulate metabolism, local circulation and fat breakdown.

 

Aqualyx® is an injectable solution which can dissolve stubborn areas of subcutaneous fat by liquefying fat cells and destroying them permanently. Aqualyx® is not intended for weight loss, but to reduce stubborn pockets of fat and improve body contours. It is an ideal alternative to liposuction and laser lipo treatments which can result in bruising and swelling.

 

Treatment with cellulite and fat reducing injections at the Urban Aesthetix Clinic may by followed by VelaShape III for optimum results. This combines infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin to reduce skin laxity and body volume, and improve skin structure and texture.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why consider cellulite and fat reducing injections?

Mesotherapy is used to treat a variety of conditions. For example:

  • Cellulite: to reduce the appearance of cellulite by localising fat deposits and promoting weight loss by stimulating metabolism, local circulation and fat breakdown
  • Localised adipocytes: to eliminate localised fat deposits.

 

 

Aqualyx® can be injected over the entire body except around the eyes, with some areas particularly suitable for fat dissolving treatment. For example:

  • Chin: to reduce a double chin, chubby cheeks and heavy jowls in a fat-loss facelift
  • Love handles: to target fat cells in love handles and muffin tops
  • Flabby stomach: to reduce belly fat and a stomach paunch
  • Bra fat: to reduce awkward bra fat bulges and back bulge around the bra area
  • Outer and inner thighs: to target saddle bags and chubby thighs
  • Knees: to treat unwanted fat knees caused by fatty deposits around the knee area.

 

 

VelaShape III contours and shapes the body by improving cellulite and reducing circumference. For example:

 

  • Cellulite: to help smooth and tighten skin and to re-contour uneven, irregular or dimpled skin for a lifted, more toned effect – especially for the knees, bottom and stomach areas
  • Circumference reduction: with noticeable reshaping of the treated area
  • Uneven skin texture and tone: to gradually smooth the skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
  • Dimpled knees: to treat knee cellulite and fat knees so that patients can wear a skirt or shorts with confidence
  • Sagging bottom: to help smooth, tighten and re-contour the skin
  • Love handles: to target fat at sides of stomach and unwanted saddle bags
  • Mummy tummy: to help you get back into shape after pregnancy
  • Belly fat: to treat a flabby stomach with a more suitable alternative to liposuction which can lead to bruising and swelling
