The human body naturally stores fat subcutaneously but its distribution is determined genetically.
Inherent distribution cannot be remedied by diet or exercise.
Cellulite occurs when the fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin giving an ‘orange-peel’ appearance
Adipocytolysis is the destruction of the adipocyte cell with the subsequent release of cell debris that may be hydrolysed and eliminated via the lymphatic system
Celluform and Aqualyx are injectables used to reduce localised fat and cellulite. Aqualyx is a synthetic variant of naturally-occurring bile-acid produced in the liver (with the assistance of bacteria) to aid in the digestion of fat.
Celluform has the following key ingredients:
After injection into the subcutaneous tissue, Celluform & Aqualyx attaches to fat cell walls and causes it to become unstable, allowing the fatty acids trapped within to be released. This is done gradually using a buffer within the solution to allow the body to breaks down the remnants of the dissolved cell, while the fatty acids are slowly expelled through the lymphatic system. The treatment is designed to specifically target (via specialised cannula) stubborn and small pockets of fat that cannot be removed with regular exercise and healthy eating alone. An anaesthetic solution can also be added to the Aqualyx solution before injecting to improve comfort through the procedure.
|Per Area / Session
Depending on the area being treated, it may need multiple sessions to fully take effect. Dr Asaad will do her best to estimate this on the initial consultation but can vary depending on the patient.
