With liposuction having potential risks, fat reduction injections have become a fast and safer alternative. The product, Aqualyx, allows you to remodel areas of your body without any surgery. The Aqualyx molecule attaches itself to the membrane of fat cells in the injected area and starts to dissolve the membrane surrounding the cell. It removes areas of fat and cellulite that normal treatment would not get rid of.
The treatment itself only takes around 15 to 45 minutes to administer and you require around 2 to 6 treatments over a 4-week period. You can expect some swelling initially but should see noticeable fat reduction within a 6-week timeframe.
Fillers are most common for boosting lip volume and giving them a more definitive shape. They remove wrinkles around the lip area and essentially bring out your natural beauty. The substance used in fillers is hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule that promotes a youthful appearance. It is also known as calcium hydroxyapatite.
The idea is that these are natural substances so have limited side effects and they stimulate the creation of collagen which is the protein found in skin. They also provide hydration to the skin and maintain skin elasticity.

A face lift involves doctors implanting a series of seams to your face to make your look young and fresher. The technique involves using multiple implantations of special sutures called polydioxanone, commonly known as PDO. Doctors will use fine needles loaded with PDO mini-sutures that stay in the dermis when the needles are removed. Many different areas of the face and individual needs can be catered for including the cheeks, chin and around the eyes.
Popular with celebrities, the treatment is designed to tighten your face and remove wrinkles. The process produces natural collagen so it is a safe procedure and improves the elasticity of skin to help your face look its loveliest for the foreseeable future.
