As the industry continues to shift, staying informed about the latest products and techniques is essential for practitioners who strive to offer the best possible care to their clients, especially when it comes to fat dissolving products. Two prominent fat-dissolving products , Lemon Bottle and Aqualyx, have recently gained attention with the rise in popularity of fat dissolvers in the industry. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll dissect the differences between these two treatments, enabling aesthetic practitioners to make informed choices based on their patients’ unique needs.
The Basics of Fat Dissolving Products
Before we dive into this comparison, let’s briefly review what fat dissolvers are and how they work. Whilst they are not recommended as a means of weight loss, these minimally invasive treatments are designed to target and eliminate localised fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. They typically contain active ingredients that break down fat cells, which are then naturally metabolised and eliminated by the body.
Lemon Bottle Fat Dissolving
Lemon Bottle is now available as part of our fat dissolvers range and has gained recognition recently for its efficacy in reducing submental fat.
Active Ingredient: Lecithin, Bromeliad & Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
- Unique Formulation: Unlike most other fat dissolvers on the market, Lemon Bottle is formulated with a unique blend of ingredients for enhanced fat cell response including Riboflavin, Lecithin and Bromeliad.
- Versatile Treatment Protocol: Lemon Bottle is popular among practitioners for its versatility and efficacy. Lemon Bottle can be used all over the body and the chin, with amazing results for reducing submental fat, often referred to as the “double chin.”
- Pain Free: Lemon Bottle has been reported to be one of the least painful fat dissolving solutions on the market with minimal downtime and no swelling post-treatment.
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving
Aqualyx is a gel-based solution and an industry-favourite for reducing fat on the body. Whilst it is not regarded as a solution for weight loss, it has shown efficacy for treating stubborn areas of fat.
Active Ingredient: Deoxycholic Acid
- CE-Marked: Aqualyx has been around for over 10 years and is registered with the medical CE mark.
- Versatile Usage: Aqualyx is known for its versatility, as it can be used to treat fat deposits in various body areas, including the chin, abdomen, thighs, and knees.
- Multiple Sessions: Like Lemon Bottle, Aqualyx usually requires multiple treatment sessions for optimal results.
Key Differences: Lemon Bottle vs. Aqualyx
- Lemon Bottle: Works best on more targeted treatment areas including the “double chin”, jowls, back fat and love handles.
- Aqualyx: Known for its versatility, suitable for treating fat deposits in multiple body areas.
- Lemon Bottle: Lemon Bottle offers a more budget-friendly option compared to Aqualyx. While its prices are lower, each box contains 5x10ml vials, which can also be bought individually. This makes Lemon Bottle 67% less costly than Aqualyx.
- Aqualyx: Aqualyx is slightly pricier, but a single box provides 10x8ml vials. Despite the fact that Lemon Bottle is 67% cheaper than an Aqualyx box, you receive 46% more product in each box.
- Aqualyx: Patients may experience some discomfort and swelling post-treatment.
- Lemon Bottle: Known for minimal discomfort and downtime, making it a preferred choice for some patients.
Number of Sessions:
- Lemon Bottle: Multiple sessions are typically required for the best outcome.
- Aqualyx: Also generally involves multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
Choosing the Right Treatment
Ultimately, the choice between Lemon Bottle and Aqualyx should be based on several factors, including the patient’s specific goals, the area of the body being treated, and the patient’s tolerance for potential side effects. Both products have their merits, and your expertise as an aesthetic practitioner will play a crucial role in guiding your patients towards the most suitable option.
Before administering any fat dissolving treatment, it’s essential to conduct a thorough consultation with your patient to assess their candidacy and understand their expectations fully. Additionally, ensure that you are fully trained and certified to use these products safely and effectively.
