You’ve heard it from fitness enterprises. You’ve heard it from personal trainers. You’ve probably even heard it from your PE teacher back in school: to lose weight, one’s calorie output must be more than one’s calorie input. The formula for a slimmer waistline was always constant and rigorous exercise and a well-planned diet.
While this formula may work well in your initial stages of weight loss, things get a bit more complicated when you’re trying to shed off the last bit of belly fat. Suddenly, lunchtime starvation and miles on the treadmill don’t work anymore, and the jiggling lumps on your belly spoil your ideal silhouette.
Worse yet, your metabolism gradually slows down each day as you age. Losing weight may become a struggle as your daily hours become more and more precious. Work begins to pile, and your commitment to your body may begin to falter. Soon, you might give up on it entirely, condemning yourself to a life in a body that, you believe, can no longer be altered to achieve the preciously slim waistline you’ve yearned for decades.
But, it is possible to achieve that slim waistline you’ve always dreamed of. Not without the hard work you need to put in, of course. Your exercise routine and clean diet choices must still be present for you to maintain the ideal body. There are two main treatments that can reduce the fat in your problem area(s); both are offered by aesthetic clinics in Singapore: Coolsculpting by Zeltiq, and Liposonix. Both procedures are great for killing off unwanted fat cells on the body, mostly on the stomach area.
The main difference between the two procedures is that Coolsculpting uses extreme cold to freeze off fat cells, while Liposonix uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to kill off fat cells. Both procedures will not affect the external skin layer, targetting only the fat cells underneath the skin.
A new applicator for the Coolsculpting treatment called CoolAdvantage has made the treatment more effective and more comfortable within a shorter treatment time. With CoolAdvantage, patients undergoing the Coolsculpting treatment can finish their treatment in 35 minutes, and witness a dramatic reduction in bruising post treatment.
Dr Tam of EHA Clinic has over 20 years of medical experience, and years of experience with both treatments. He will be able to answer all queries you may have about the treatments.
With Coolsculpting and Liposonix, your ideal figure is no longer a dream. Within 2 to 3 months after the procedure, you can see results.
Coolsculpting and Liposonix is not limited to the abdomen. Consult with Dr Tam if you feel you would like either treatment on any other area of your body, as he would be best to advise you on this.
