Dermal fillers continue to be highly popular due to the natural hyaluronic acid formula featured in most Dermal Fillers brands. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body but can deplete over time due to ageing or environment, it requires no allergen tests as it does not use animal DNA. It is biodegradable and absorbs over time into the skin leaving no by-products or waste.
Dermal fillers aim to be the perfect solution for delaying the ageing process or filling in any depressions left from weight loss or illness. They can be used to get rid of fine lines, wrinkles, shadows and hollows around the eyes, lips and nose area. Dermal Fillers can also help replace lost volume in the face focusing on the cheek and nose area, it can be used to plump up lips and contour the face according to preference.
It is a stress-free alternative to invasive surgery and will dissolve naturally over time. Most popular dermal fillers can last between 6-9 months, up to a year or longer depending on the individual strength and formula used. Individual treatments are tailored to each client and customer depending on personal circumstance, lifestyle and requirements.

Fillers in Dubai - AQUALYX®
AQUALYX® is an injectable, gel-based aqueous solution, a non-surgical reduction of stubborn fat under the skin.

This is a form of injection lipolysis, lipotherapy or intralipotherapy. It is marketed for aqualysis or aquaplasty treatment as a means of body contouring. Clinical data shows that the application of AQUALYX is effective and safe, leading to an increase in contoured appearance.
AQUALYX was developed to treat localised pockets of fat underneath the surface of the skin. It can be used to treat fat pockets on the back, chin, stomach, underneath the buttocks, hips, thighs and knees. It can also be used to treat pseudo-gynaecomastia, the development of fatty tissue around the nipple, resulting in a breast-like appearance in men (due to weight gain rather than the growth of actual breast tissue as seen in genuine male gynaecomastia). This is sometimes referred to as Motolese`s Solution. AQUALYX was developed by Professor Pasquale Motolese, president of the Italian Society of Aesthetics and Medicine and was first introduced in 2009. Manufactured by the Italian firm Marllor, it was first launched in the UK in 2013 and is distributed in the UK by Healthxchange Pharmacy.
What is AQUALYX?
AQUALYX is an aqueous compound solution, with slow-release sugar that reduces the biological half-life of the solution, minimising side effects. The ingredients are a polymer from phospate buffered saline, agarose, sodium deoxycholate, water for injection purposes (87%). The buffer system within AQUALYX ensures that the 12alfa-dihydroxy-5beta-24oico cholanic acid sodium salt is delivered to the target area. Deoxycholic acid has been used in various fields of human medicine since its discovery. Present also in the human body, deoxycholic acid is used in the emulsification of fats for the absorption in the intestine.
How does it work?
The solution is injected into the treatment area whereby the 12alfa-dihydroxy-5beta-24-oico cholanic acid sodium salt of AQUALYX alters the surface tension of the fat cell membrane and increases the permeability of the membrane. An ultrasound device is then applied over the surface of the skin in the targeted area and this causes the movement of liquids both inside and outside the fat cells. The fat cells start to balloon and break up, leading to the drainage of micro droplets of fatty liquid into the body, which is then metabolised through the lymphatic system and excreted.
What happens during treatment?
One AQUALYX treatment typically consists of two injection sites. A local anaesthetic, lidocaine, will usually be administered before the treatment commences. The practitioner may prefer however to add the lidocaine anaesthetic to the AQUALYX solution so that the two are injected together. Either method should minimise discomfort during the procedure. The practitioner will use an ultrasound device in conjunction with the AQUALYX injections to assist in the dissipation of the fat cells. Treatment regime: the time taken for a treatment session will depend upon the size of the area and indication being treated. Treatment can take between 30 - 60 minutes per treatment and you will typically require 2 - 8 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Some people may see significant results after 1 or 2 sessions. Treatment for fat pockets underneath the neck and chin, for example, may require 1 - 3 treatments of 2 - 3 injections, while treatment for fat pockets on the hips and thighs may require 8 treatments.
