Review of My CoolSculpting Fat Reduction Treatment at Halley Body Slimming Clinic

I agree that working out helps to lose weight but there is still stubborn fat on abdomen, flanks, arms and inner thighs which are left and refuse to leave me. This is frustrating! At times, my bulges are nicely hidden (which is a skill 😉) but when I need to bare a little, the ugly truth will surface. Swinging by Halley Body Slimming Clinic  looking for Dr. Terence Tan  for suggestions. I’m running out of time as CNY is approaching and none of us want to look any lesser than being good.

Here I am looking for the right professional advice by Dr. Terence Tan. Dr. Terence suggested CoolSculpting  will be able to address my concerns.


Okayyyy … but wait! What is CoolSculpting? Does it hurt? How long will it take?

About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime fat reduction treatment. It’s the only US FDA approved fat freezing treatment that uses the concept of crylipolysis to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells, which are then disposed from the body naturally. The treatment removes 20-27% of fat cells in the treated area each time. And because our body is unable to produce any new fat cells after five years of age, the fat cells that die after fat freezing will be gone forever. That is why CoolSculpting is used to remove unwanted fat which cannot be removed through spot toning exercises. Areas that can be treated include the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, back, banana roll (butt cheeks), knees, and even the double chin and cheeks.

Dr. Terence Tan of Halley Body Slimming Clinic prescribed a total of 16 CoolSculpting applicators to treat the stubborn fat on my tummy, flanks, arms, and inner thighs. Halley offers QuadSculpting  as well, which is the use of four CoolSculpting machines in tandem over four non-overlapping body areas to reduce treatment time by up to 85% with the CoolAdvantage applicators. By bringing in the latest fat reduction technology and pairing it with smart slimming strategies, Halley hopes to make it easier and quicker for people to achieve their body goal, no matter what it may be.

About the treatment process

Prior to the treatment, Dr. Terence Tan used the CoolAdvantage templates to mark out the areas that require treatment as the CoolSculpting treatment plan has to be customized and personalised for every patient in order to achieve optimal results.


Dr. Terence was explaining to me about the process as well as the applicator and he is definitely a very nice doctor to talk to where a consultation turns out to be a casual discussion (about freezing my fats).

Once the CoolSculpting plans have been finalized, the therapist would then apply gel pads onto the treatment area to protect the skin during treatment.

Its cooling, just like slapping a sheet of face mask on.

After each treatment cycle, the therapist would remove the applicator and massage the treated area. This helps to speed up the breakdown of the crystallized dead fat cells, which will be passed out by the body naturally.

Results from CoolSculpting are expected three months after treatment. Can’t wait to see and share with you the results!!

The applicators may be set to freeze the fats at -11C, all I can tell is, it is not painful at all. To be precise, it feels like a little frost bite (of course it does! Else it will not be known as fat freezing). Don’t worry, its not a process that you need to be sedated. The whole duration is quite chill, yea, that’s me scrolling my Instagram 😊

Halley Body Slimming Clinic helps you achieve your body goals through non-invasive, no downtime body treatments that are medically-proven, safe, and effective. Their treatments range from doctor-monitored weight management treatments, fat reduction, body firming, to muscle toning. Their contact details are below if you are interested.

3 months had passed and Halley buzzed me up to swing by. That visit to Halley was to review the “Before & After”. I am gonna show you some magic in your next scroll down this page.

Dr. Terence is walking me through the improvements Cool Sculpting has done to me.

[Before vs After] (Those excess fats magically “shrunk”) Those “loose arms” used to flap like a bird.
[Before & After] Those back flanks are not visible and well, there is a slight thigh gap now!
[Before & After] The pouch at the belly & the thighs shrunk.
[Before & After] Significant different from how my back flanks and arms used to be.

Its amazing how Cool Sculpting works and best part of this is the results is permanent. 

utmost satisfied with the results! These are legit results and if you want to have more information, do not hesitate to contact Halley Medical Aesthetics. Thank you so much, Dr. Terence!

HALLEY MEDICAL AESTHETICS TREATMENT

I have just done my very first aesthetic treatment. I always fear for downtimes or pain which I may need to go through but no, that was just my conventional idea. When I first stepped into Halley Medical Aesthetics clinic, I was overwhelmed with the ambiance. The clinic looks classy and calm. 

Well, to ease your curiosity, the reason I landed my feet here is because my fine lines are getting more and more visible. I have been slapping various skin care on my face, but there is no visible improvement seen. Well, probably there is only so much skin care can do. 

… and here I am, seeking Dr. Mark Lim for a little help to fix or erase the lines.

So, this is what happened. A couple of weeks ago, I made an appointment with Dr. Mark and swung by Halley Medical Aesthetics.

During the consultation, I shared with him my concern on the crow’s feet which are getting visible.

Dr Mark took a closer look at my skin. In all honestly, I was feeling a little anxious as I may feel a little embarrassed to ask silly questions. After all, this is my virgin adventure in medical aesthetics. Regardless, Dr Mark patiently help me to understand the available treatments and what is best for me. Dr Mark suggested Halley’s Baby Skin Healer Trio

What is Halley’s Baby Skin Healer Trio? 

Baby Skin Healer Trio is a combination of Rejuran Skin Healer, Restylane Skin Booster, and Micro-Botox, and it is delivered into the skin via injections. They are injected right below the surface of our skin and is a great anti-ageing treatment specially designed by Halley Medical Aesthetics to enhance the benefits of the three injectable treatments. 

Rejuran Skin Healer: Rejuran is a skin healer made of highly purified polynucleotide or PN. It naturally rejuvenates the skin cells by stimulating growth factors to accelerate the skin’s natural healing process, thereby reversing skin damage and increase collagen production. 

Restylane Skin Booster: SkinBoosters are microinjections that introduce moisture into the skin, keeping it smooth, firm, and plump. They are effective in rejuvenating skin and putting the glow back into tired faces. The hydrating Restylane SkinBooster treatment in Singapore introduces hyaluronic acid into the face, which is a natural compound found in our body that maintains hydration in the skin. 

Micro-Botox: On its own, Micro-Botox is injected in very small doses on face areas such as the jawline, under-eye area, and cheeks. Not only does Micro-Botox make your skin less oily with reduced pores, it also removes fine wrinkles, addresses inflammation or acne, refines skin texture, leaving you with a natural-looking mini facelift due to the tightening of the skin.

We then fixed a date for the treatment to be carried out. Before I start sharing the entire treatment, nahhhh … it’s not painful. Zero endurance level required. First and foremost, clean skin required which also means make up needs to be removed before applying numbing cream. The numbing cream needs to sit for about 20 mins before I don’t feel even the cold ice pack.

Dr Mark shared and explained the product to me prior.

The entire process ended even before I know. Dr. Mark injected tiny doses of Baby Skin Healer Trio into the skin and the whole process took just about 30 minutes.

The entire process was seamless, 30 minutes is all I need. Needle marks, mild redness and bruises can occur but generally resolves rapidly and can be concealed with makeup. Well, there were tiny bumps over the injection site after the treatment which lasted for two days. I could see them going away the very next day. Hence, it’s really no biggie. Also, only minimal post-treatment care is needed. Just so you know, Baby Skin Healer Trio takes up to 6 weeks to see improvements in your skin. The treatment is best done 3-4 times at a monthly interval. Subsequently, repeat the treatment once every 6 months for maintenance of healthy skin.

Bober Tea

While there are plenty of boba tea islandwide, Bober Tea 御波坊 is a home grown brand who has been the talk of the town. Also, Bober Tea provides islandwide delivery, makes it so much more convenient for all of us.

Matcha Brown Sugar Crème Brûlée Milk

Ohh, and I do fancy their QQ tapioca pearls and so, I was told that the chewy and soft pearls were freshly made at the outlet.

Brown Sugar Crème Brûlée Milk

Bober tea introduces premium flavours such as pure matcha powder, Okinawa Black Sugar, and Hokkaido milk in the spread of menu. The more fanciful ones added to their spread of obtions would be Matcha, Roasted Oolong and Oreo.

These are more of the classic ones, taste as good as it looks. However, sweetness level had been fixed.

Food Review: Qi Philosophy

With plenty of natural light shines through the glass panels, Qi Philosophy serves healthy fusion meals. Having surrounded by the green scenery, it makes the cafe spreads more zen aura. Its located around the HDB estate, however it may not have a signboard on the outside of the cafe. So, you gotta spot it.

The interior
Soup of The Day: Cream of Pumpkin
Mui Fan: Qi Philosophy serves daily set menus, which comes with a soup of the day (which was Pumpkin Soup), a main course and a drink. There are a couple of main course to choose from and one of them would be Mui Fan. For those who may not know what Mui Fan is, its a dish serves with basmati rice filled with gravy along with prawns, broccoli, chicken and squid.
Taco Tempeh Bowl: The name would have probably say it all. Its definitely a healthy bowl served with tempe, mix vege with tortilla chips. You can dig in without feeling any guilt!
Qi Wagyu Beef Burger (additional $3 for this main): Oh, burger! How can I resist. As a huge fan of buns, every bite is so fulfilling as I sink my teeth into the wagyu beef patty. A little heads up for you, if you are not a big eater, the portion served is best recommended to be shared. The burger is served with sweet potato fries and coleslaw as the sides. Juicy patty for sure. I truly enjoyed it.
Roasted Chicken Buah Keluak: This is one of my favourite too. Roasted chicken with buah keluak turns out to be an awesome combination! I won’t give the acar a miss, with the blue Butterfly Pea Flower Coconut Rice which tasted like heaven on earth! Whacking all on this plate.
As for drinks, I opted for ice lemon tea. Well, there is a range to choose from:
* Coffee (Latte, Cappucino or Americano)
* Artisanal Teas (English Breakfast, Early Grey, Green Tea, * Peppermint or Chamomile);
* Ice Fruit Tea (Lemon, Peach or Apple); or
* Bottled Juices
Cakes! Oh well, Qi Philosophy serves desserts too. However, they are not included in the set meal. Hence, you may need to top it up separately which cost $6.80 per slice. Cakes shown on the picture from left to right: Pastel Yogurt, Red Velvet, Double Chocolate Fudge and Carrot Walnut
Fans of Kombucha, they are available here too at $7.50 per bottle.
Had a great time catching up with my girls too.
