Just because you don’t see the effects of UV damage on your skin in your 20s, that doesn’t mean they are not there – hidden spots caused by UV exposure can take years to appear.

Singapore Aesthetics Clinic: Liposonix vs Coolsculpting!

eha clinic zeltiq coolsculpting vs liposonix review
Liposonix ( ultrasound ) or Coolsculpting ( fat freezing ), which is better? Well, I have tried both and I have to admit they yield pretty good results.

I am such a glutton, and have no discipline over food. I am also " allergic " to exercises which makes it even worse. Are you like that too? Love to eat, but hate to work out? Thank goodness I am not over-weight, but just needed to get rid of those unsightly tummy fats so that I can fit nicely in a dress.

eha aesthetics clinic liposonix ultrasound fat reduction
In this post, I shall share my personal experience on these two fat-reduction procedures which I had at EHA Clinic, both performed by Dr Elias Tam. Hopefully at the end of the post, these information will help you decide if these treatments are what you are looking for.

Well, the good thing about #Liposonix and #Coolsculpting is that you do not need to go under the knife to get rid of your unwanted fats. These are non-surgical and non-invasive unlike procedures such as Liposuction, which carries certain surgical risks. However, they are not alternative procedures to Liposuction.
