Aqualyx - An innovative solution formulated by the Italians to dissolve stubborn cellulite!
This product is not a filler, but a fat dissolver.
Active ingredient, Deoxycholic Acid, magically pushes out those stubborn pockets of fat that have been residing under the skin for decades and wont shift with diet and exercise alone.
Our bodies naturally contain Deoxycholic Acid, whose function is to breakdown or emulsify fats before absorption into the digestive system, namely the intestine.
We all know the common areas where cellulite resides are the:

How is it different to Kybella?
In comparison to Kybella, Aqualyx is not only more cost-effective and available in a larger quantity, there are also fewer side effects reported too.
Both treat the same indications and parts of the body where fat is the most hardest to remove, but more Americans know about Kybella in the USA, whilst Aqualyx is less known about.
Aqualyx is a compounded solution from the Deoxycholate family, whereas Kybella is Deoxycholic acid.
When we look at the cost efficiency of Kybella, it costs around $1500 for just 4x2ml or at most clinics, $500 per vial. Aqualyx costs $545 for 10x8ml, which gives you 10 times more solution, for a lower cost too.
In other words, Kybella costs $188 per ml, whereas Aqualyx is only $7 per ml. A significant $181 saving per ml which many Americans who want to lose fat to gain a contoured shape, would be happy to take home.
Although Aqualyx is not FDA approved in the USA yet, it is used globally by millions of medical professionals. The Food and Drug Association would need to carry out extensive, costly tests which require many resources before a product receives FDA approval.
For the amount of ml Aqualyx has per vial, this is enough to treat an area of the body, without having to reorder more. Kybella on the other hand, has to be reordered because 8ml will only treat 1.5cm of surface area. This can become a costly procedure, which doubles the costs even further.
Aqualyx is an extremely affordable alternative to Kybella and one user's comments were, "It burns so much more than our kybella here does! Wooo it’s hot."

Process For Administering Aqualyx - How It Works
Individuals who long for a flawless silhouette can undergo lipotherapy or lipolysis (administration of Aqualyx) to achieve their perfectly contoured body shape. The term used to describe this procedure is known as Aqualysis or Aquaplasty. This process requires the use of special intralipotherapy needles (24G x 10cm not included), which once injected, liquify fat cells, permanently destroying them before releasing the fats into the lymphatic system.
An ultrasound device can be used to monitor the movement of Aqualyx into localized fat cells.
The whole process should take no more than an hour.
Although 2-8 treatments may be required, results are noticeable just after the first or second session. Treatments should be spaced out 4 weeks apart. More stubborn areas such as the hips and thighs may require more treatments than the chin and neck which can be treated in 1-3 sessions.
Using Local Anaesthetic Lidocaine
It is recommended to use Lidocaine to ensure painless treatment of Aqualyx. This can either be administered prior to treatment or mixed with the Aqualyx solution. If the practitioner opts for the latter, they will notice a cloudier solution of Aqualyx and can be reassured, this will not affect Aqualyx's effectiveness or stability.
This product does not come with the needle and will need to be purchased separately. Consulting with your medical practitioner on the technique they will use to administer Aqualyx should form the decision for which lipoinject intralipotherapy needle to purchase.
