Aqualyx is a fat loss treatment that helps to dissolve stubborn fat deposits simply and non-surgically. Some stubborn areas of fat remain resistant to regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Sometimes even a strict diet and exercise regime fails to reduce some areas of fatty deposits. This is due to the way that fat cells are structured in certain areas. The body naturally stores fat so that it can be used to release energy when required.
Some of these fat depots are laid down in childhood therefore later these fat cells that are stored in the subcutaneous fat layer only change in size and volume (i.e. shrink) when dieting and exercising rather than decrease in numbers. They are difficult to diminish completely which is why they serve as a reliable depot so that the body can store fat.
How does Aqualyx work?
The body produces desoxycholan-acid; a bile acid which is made in the liver and helps the digestion of fat. Aqualyx contains this bile acid and its fat dissolving properties are utilized in this treatment. Aqualyx works by locking onto the wall of the fat cell and making it unstable. This releases the content of fatty acid inside. The body then uses up the fatty acid as energy and remove the cell residue in its normal way.
