Alidya®

Alidya® (Cellulite dissolving injection) is a new product which prevents cellulite from developing at early stages. It is an injectable substance to dissolve cellulite which is particularly seen in ladies. Cellulite is an estrogen dependent fibro-fatty tissue disorder of the subcutaneous tissue. Since it is estrogen related, it is most commonly found in ladies. The treatment can be done on any area developing cellulite. The most common noticeable areas with cellulite are buttocks, thighs and saddlebags which usually occurs after puberty. Alidya® is the first injectable registered medical product for the prevention and treatment of gynaecoid lipodystrophy (cellulite). Alidya® helps to dissolve the fat responsible for cellulite but it also tightens some of the fibrous tissue to give a slightly smoother looking skin.

Procedure

It is a non-surgical minimally invasive treatment for cellulite in which firstly a topical anaesthetic cream is applied over the cellulitic area, then Alidya® is injected into the dermal layer or into the subcutaneous tissue with small punctures at the depth of 4-5 mm.

Injections are performed with a thin needle and are almost painless. In some cases local or topical anaesthetic can be used. The process is completed within few minutes (approximately 20 minutes). The active agents present in Alidya tiggers many essential mechanisms in tissues responsible for cellulite such as unsatisfactory microcirculation, deposited toxins and tissue damage. The product has also an antioxidant effect and curbs free-radical processes, which are favourable for development of cellulite.

Downtime and recovery

There is usually no downtime after Alidya® injections with no recovery period as it is a non-surgical minimally invasive treatment for cellulite. It is recommended to avoid use of any cosmetic product on the treated cellulitic area for 10-12 hours. We advise to avoid any rigorous physical activity (like swimming, gym or exercise), sunbathing and sauna for a few days. You can resume your daily routine almost immediately after the procedure.

Side effects

Alidya® is a safe procedure to treat cellulite. The side effects may include some temporary bruising and swelling which can easily settle down by massaging the treated area(s) 2-3 times a day for only 5 minutes.

Result

Alidya® injections works through metal chelation, exerts its effect on cellulitic areas as follows

  • It dissolves the toxins which are produced in adipose tissue in inflammatory processes

  • It enhances the lymphatic drainage of tissues

  • It improves blood circulation which results in osmotic drainage of matrix

Thus by treating the cellulitic area it enhances the structure of the skin and gives a smooth, tighter, more flawless and cellulite-free skin.

Treatment can be repeated up to 5-12 times every 7-10 days till the patient sees the benefits or to get the maximum result. The number of treatment is also depends on patient’s need and the severity of cellulite. The lasting results can be seen within 2-3 months but to maintain the results, maintenance injections are suggested. Annual treatment program is recommended if needed.
