Non-Surgical Body Contouring: Aqualyx vs Accent RF

We are now in the midst of summer and for many people this means a holiday somewhere sunny. Jetting off to warmer climate for a week of relaxation fills most of us with delight, however some elements of a holiday can also fill us with dread. The thought of baring all in a bikini by the pool side makes many of us feel nervous, whether we’ve been dieting and exercising in preparation or not. If you feel that it’s time to tackle those areas of stubborn fat in time for your holiday, a non-surgical body contouring treatment could be a great option. Dr. Thevendra of APSARAS clinic is here to talk you through your options.


Many of us trying to improve the look of our stubborn fat want a way to eradicate the issue altogether. In these cases, Aqualyx treatment could be a great option.
Aqualyx is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that not only improves the look of areas of stubborn fat, but also removes the unwanted fatty tissue too. The treatment is a water based injectable that works by binding the fat cells within the treated area. Once bound, the substance then ruptures the cell walls and dissolves the fatty content, which is then expelled from the body in a natural way.
We asked Dr. Thevendra about his opinion of Aqualyx treatment, and what the benefits to the treatment were. He said:
“Aqualyx is an effective method of non-surgical body contouring treatment for patients that are looking to improve the look of their stubborn fat. The great thing about Aqualyx treatment compared to other forms of non-surgical body contouring treatment is that it gives patients a natural solution to their contouring issues. Aqualyx is a water based solution that harnesses natural ingredients to combat unwanted fat. The treatment’s water based makeup also means that the risks involved with treatment are lower than many other non-surgical body contouring treatments.”
“Another benefit to Aqualyx is that the treatment provides patients with not only an improved look to their area of treatment, but also removes the unwanted fat from the body altogether. This is a huge benefit for many patients as it means that they can start afresh without a constant reminder of their unhealthy lifestyle in the form of stubborn fat.”

Accent RF

In many cases, what patients want is not to remove their stubborn fat, but simply to contour it into a more flattering shape. This is what Accent RF treatment provides patients with. Accent Radio Frequency is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that works by heating the fat cells with radio frequencies in order to augment them. Once heated, the fat cells can be contoured in a number of ways to achieve the desired results, which include repositioning, reshaping and even shrinking the fat cells.
Accent RF is a great non-surgical body contouring treatment for patients that are looking for a toned and slender look to their treated area. The great thing about Accent RF treatment is that it provides patients with a safe solution to their stubborn fat. Thanks to Accent RF’s use of radio frequencies, the treatment in non-invasive, which means it comes with dramatically lower risks involved than many other forms of treatment and almost eradicates the risk of infection completely,” said Dr. Thevendra.
“Another benefit to Accent RF is that it is time efficient. Accent RF can usually be performed in just 30 minutes and requires no recovery time, making it the perfect last minute fix before your holiday!”

Which is better?

Which non-surgical body contouring treatment is better is really a matter of opinion. What works well for one patients may not be as beneficial for another. Both treatments have their relative benefits and it’s important that patients weight up these elements as well as the risks and how well the treatment fits with their lifestyle in order to make the right decision for you.
