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?
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 😊
It will take 3 months for me to see my final results, and I’ll be updating this space with my results later on. Stay tuned!
