IS CELLULITE CAUSED BY FAT?

HOW LONG DOES ALIDYA LAST?
The effects of Alidya usually last for one year, however this depends on the patient. The treatment can be reapplied as needed.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
Alidya’s side effects are mostly from the injection rather than the treatment itself. Therefore, bruises and haematomas can be caused and will resolve over time.
WHAT SHOULD I AVOID AFTER THE ALIDYA TREATMENT?
After the treatment, avoid touching the injection site for the first few hours. Avoid the application of makeup or cosmetics on and around the application site. Avoid heat such as sunbathing, sun beds, hot showers or baths for the first 48 hours.
