Achieving the figure you want isn't as difficult as you think. Exercise is definitely not an option for a lazy person like me, and there are several aesthetic programs worth considering. As much as I would love to try treatments such as #Liposonix or #Thermage, I've been advised against since I've the IUD birth control placed in my uterus.
Over at EHA Clinic, I was really thrilled to discover that I could eliminate stubborn fats without surgery or downtime with the #Zeltiq Fat Freeze CoolSculpting, a safer option for people like myself. It's just perfect for those who want to reshape their body quickly!
How The Coolsculpting Procedure Freezes Fat Cells
Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise. CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling ( Cryolipolysis ) to target and kill only these fat cells. In the weeks to follow, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body.
Do you know that there's actually a difference between fat reduction and weight loss?
It's a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They're not. When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again.
What to expect after the treatment
Tissues may look red and stiff immediately after the procedure which will soon disappear. Vaccum can cause bruising and it's common. My tummy felt stiff, and slightly painful when brushed against. I was told this will typically be gone in a few weeks but mine took about a month.
This technology is only available at medical clinic, although I've heard of some beauty salons offering CoolSculpting for as cheap as SGD 88 for one part of your body, compared to SGD 800 - SGD 1,200 done by professional doctors.
"Why such a great difference in price?" I asked Dr Tam. It seems that these beauty salons use copy cat machines that may not have the built-in safety measures to automatically shut down should the temperature falls below the harmful level.
Also, I heard that those who went for the SGD 88 trials ended up signing up a package of 20 sessions! That's almost SGD 2K, which is equivalent to the price you're paying for a professional doctor's service.
Coolsculpting by Zeltiq costs SGD 856 per area treated over at EHA Clinic, and only one session is needed! I had two areas done on my tummy, hence the total cost is SGD 1,712. I'm fully satisfied with my results! If you're also thinking of trying Coolsculpting, choose wisely. It's better to be safe to avoid unnecessary complications.
