AFTER-CARE ADVICE FOR
After treatment, the area may redden, swell, and bruising may be experienced.
Aqualyx works by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling that lasts 3-5 days. This swelling can be obvious when having facial treatments (e.g. chin).
Swelling can be reduced with the use of a cool pack wrapped in a clean cloth and used for a maximum of 20 mins.
Do not use any anti-inflammatory tablets for 48 hours.
Do not apply make-up or skincare to the treated area for 12 hours - then only use a clean brush or sponge for application until day five.
Aqualyx still works as a standalone, however, it is our recommendation clients incorporate short massage sessions in the initial weeks following treatment. To ensure the product is evenly distributed, fat softened, circulation and long terms results improved.
• Three days - extreme temperatures, swimming pools / spas / saunas.
• 10 days – high physical exercise.
• 14 days - laser, cryolipolysis or radiofrequency treatments.
