Beauty Review

Coolsculpting at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Readers who followed my Instagram @iamyukinglove would know that I've been pretty upset about my weight gain.

My weight jumped from 48kg to 53kg, and then it shot up to 59kg, breaking my own record. Well, it's not exactly something that I'm proud of, though!

 

As a travel blogger, I get to explore and try all the local delicacies in different parts of the world. To add on to those calories, I tend to feast during festive seasons too. I'm definitely having the time of my life but all of these made it extra hard for me to slim down.

I've mentioned that I'm someone who puts on weight easily. And with all the eating and drinking, things are getting worse.

My weight is like a rollercoaster ride, going up and down all the time even after I return home from traveling and keeping my food intake in control. To add fuel to the fire, the fats are all gathered on my thighs and that really what irks me the most. On top of that, my boobs were the ones to lose all the weight when I try to slim my thighs!

My inner and outer thighs both expanded in circumference and it got to the point where my inner thighs suffered from abrasion from cycling and it left scars after that. I can only hope that the scars will fade over time.

 

With my thighs out of proportion, should I lose weight or should I go for body contouring?

My friends who were concerned advised me to consult a doctor and seek help. I headed to Halley Medical Aesthetics to look for Dr. Terence Tan, since I've heard a lot of good stuff about him.

During the consultation, Dr. Terence Tan shared with me that there are many people who tried to slim down using unorthodox methods because they do not know the difference between losing weight, fat reduction, and body firming. Therefore, there are actually three different issues that we need to deal with, and not just one.

 

What is the difference between losing weight, fat reduction, and body firming?

Fat reduction will not decrease your weight significantly; what it changes are your body contours. You will find that your clothes fit better, and stubborn fat bulges that are hard to get rid of via workout can be easily eliminated.

If you experience wrinkles and loose, saggy skin after fat reduction and weight loss, they can be easily resolved by undergoing laser or radiofrequency skin tightening treatments.

With a combination of these fat reduction and skin tightening treatments, it isn't too hard to achieve the body shape you covet.

 

I've been wrong all these time!

The root of my problem is my fat cells. The fat cells in my body reduced in size when I lose weight and I appear slimmer. However, they are always present and they expand when I put on weight, making me look bigger again, if I do not get rid of them. 

To get to the root of the problem, I need to reduce the number of fat cells, especially over the stubborn fat bulges in my thighs to effectively slim them. Dr. Terence Tan advised me to try out CoolSculpting®to freeze away my fat to permanently get rid of those pesky fat cells.

After taking some body measurements and checking my blood pressure, Dr. Terence Tan concluded that my inner and outer thighs accumulated excess fats in relation to my body proportions. 

 

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® is a US FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that utilises cryolipolysis technology that targets only fat cells. The frozen and crystallised fat cells are eliminated and the fat cells are gone for good. With this device, the doctor can perform spot reduction and body contouring with the kind of precision that is impossible with any spot toning exercise.

CoolSculpting works especially well on stubborn fat bulges that are difficult to eliminate with working out or dieting, and it has been proven that fat cells are reduced by 20% to 25% after treatment with permanent effects.

The new generation of the of its applicator, the CoolAdvantage, can target very stubborn fat bulges easily and cover a bigger surface with a lesser chance of bruising. Therefore, the time taken for the treatment is also shorter and it can be done in 35minutes, which is almost half the time taken by the older generation applicators.

In simpler words, CoolAdvantage can freeze away our fat cells in a shorter time at the targeted spot. With the fat cells eliminated, we will not look as big as before even when we gain a little weight and we can take preventive measures or start working out to slim down whenever that happens. Of course, a good figure only comes with a healthy and disciplined lifestyle. No amount of treatment will help if you decide to feast every day!

 

CoolAdvantage™ treatment

Before the treatment starts, Dr. Tan made some markings my skin before place the applicators on my thighs. He used used CoolSmooth Pro on my outer thighs, and CoolFit Advantage on my inner thighs.

Treatment time:

Left inner thigh - 35 mins
Right outer thigh - 1 h 45 mins

And what did I do in the meantime? Just chill and use my phone!

 

I was given a massage when the treatment ended to break down the crystallised fat cells. And at this point in time, my legs felt like some frozen pork! Haha!

There is no downtime after the treatment and I can go about my usual activities. There are no bruises but the treated area is tender to touch and it felt a little hard. The feeling will go away in a week or so.

Dr. Terence Tan told me that the best effects of the treatment can be seen in around 3 months time and I'll definitely share my results with you all again then. 

See, even with a professional medical treatment, it still takes a little time for the effects to be seen. Therefore, don't rush things when it comes to losing weight, our health is always more important.

 

My thoughts on my first CoolAdvantage treatment at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Halley Medical Aesthetics is located in the heart of Orchard Road and it is very accessible and convenient for me. The cosy environment in the clinic also made me felt very welcomed.

From the reception, all the way to the treatment, the staff and doctor at Halley Medical Aesthetics were all friendly and helpful, and Dr. Tan was especially humourous and that helped me feel very relaxed before my treatment. He also listened to my concerns patiently and answered all the queries I had before I make any decision. Dr. Tan also made me felt assured by tailoring a programme just for my needs.

My treatment cost:

CoolSmooth Pro = 2(both thighs)x $760
CoolFit Advantage = 2(both thighs)x $760
Total cost :$3040

酷塑在魅丽医学美容诊所 

By Yuki Ng 

 

有跟随我的@iamyukinglove Instagram ig 故事分享的读者都知道,姐被突然不断爆增的体重困扰好久了!从本来的48kg,到53kg ,到一下子飙升到59kg,我的天啊!这辈子第一次刷破这个个人纪录!*这种记录没什么好骄傲的呀!

以旅游博客的身份受邀到访好多国家观光旅游,尝尽赏珍海味各地美食很是享受,但是长期在外国一路吃吃吃,加上佳节过年也是吃吃吃,看似很享受是没错,但是这样要——想——瘦,就好难呀!

曾经说过,我是易胖型,就连喝水都会胖,何况这样没有节制的吃!
就算回国后,我已经开始控制日常饮食,还有做做轻运动勤练瑜伽,但是体重好像过山车起起伏伏很难控制,想靠自己努力瘦下来的进度赶不上已经发胖的状况,尤其最讨厌局部肥胖!偏偏我的局部肥胖部位就是最难减的大腿!更为难的是当你想瘦大腿偏偏努力减肥后给你瘦的是胸!就是无法准确的瘦我想瘦的部位!

不说你不知,我的大腿外围与内围的肥肉感情好到说好一起胖!就连我踩脚车时因为腿肉不断磨蹭而擦伤脱皮,留下伤疤。这样怎能让人不气馁呢?

如今已经留下伤疤了,希望疤印能慢慢淡化吧

 

超出比例的肥胖大腿,我应该减重、减脂还是塑身?

朋友提醒其自己乱来搞坏身体,不如找询问如何解决这个恼人的问题。于是就到信良好的Halley.Medical.Aesthetics丽医学美容所,陈锦生的助。

见陈锦,他解很多人肥使用的方法,因不了解正确的知注意体重、体形、柔性和身材,涉及的其是三不同的方面,但常常被是同一方面。

 

区别在哪里?

大幅改变您的体重;的是体形的衣服更加合身,以通过运动消除的腰部肉和背部脂肪都可以松除掉。

重和致的皱纹、脂肪和松弛皮,可以通激光和波射频疗法及其他刺激技术变致。

这种三管下的方法可以打造出美的身体,而背后的科理念十分简单

 

姐知道错了!原来我一直减错肥了!

怪不得每次和人提起我很胖,他们总纳闷回我,明明看起很瘦,你哪里胖

也就是,即使我多努力我的体重下降,外形可能略微瘦,但原本就已存在的脂肪虽会变小,量却保持不。如不根治,脂肪是有机在我的大腿位置的!

消脂才能少脂肪量的累,把脂肪胞含量少,才能有效让该部位消瘦下

而在Halley.Medical.Aesthetics丽医学美容所的冷溶脂法或通CoolSculpting® 行脂肪冷冻减脂,才能有效永久性地消除脂肪胞。

行了一体重身高的量身,血压测试记录陈锦生也察了我的身体各部位而得到的结论是:
依我的身型比例,大腿的外内围都累了多余的脂肪,脂肪含量增加在大腿外内围断扩张,就直接影了大腿的外形,视觉(尺寸)上就看起很胖。不结实,不美

陈锦生建我做消除脂肪抗局部肥胖最佳程的CoolSculpting®酷塑。

 

CoolSculpting®酷塑:

CoolSculpting®酷塑是唯一通食品督管理局 (FDA) 认证批准的无需手,非侵入性,无恢期的程。使用受控的冷效果,高效、精准地冷皮下脂肪胞,易于耐受。被治的脂肪晶,后死亡。时间推移,身体自然些脂肪,通排泄出体外,消除死的胞。

可以助消除无法通过饮食和运动减除的固脂肪!经过临检验、能使治部位的脂肪 20%  25%。效果著持久,给您的身材带来全方位的提升,永久性脂肪破坏。

新一代冷冻减CoolAdvantage™酷塑手握把,是全新设计3D全方位雕塑杯型探,能够针对瘦部位。不如此,CoolAdvantage™酷塑更大的传递和更大的组织吸取面,大幅提升程舒適度至45%后瘀伤状况也大幅少。头将疗时间缩35约为上一代探一半的时间,同时温度由原本-10ºc-11ºc,加强治效果。

医学简单说

就是花更短的时间让仪帮你以高效的技,精准的脂肪,准确性的让你知道何能瘦下,效果比一般肥方法持久。就算将来不小心胖也不胖回之前的脂肪量,意思是就算胖也胖得慢一点,赶做些措施是能控制下脂肪一下子爆增而增胖。然我是不能自暴自弃不控自己的生活作息和习惯,却期待身体自然保持苗,一些日常自律管理自己的付出是要的

 

CoolAdvantage™酷塑优疗

陈锦针对我的大腿局部问题而配置CoolAdvantage酷塑的探CoolSmooth Pro适于大腿外 CoolFit Advantage适于大腿内侧

行治前,陈医生先用酷塑画线版在治的部位做记号,接着在皮上覆盖用防冻伤片,才把探头紧贴上去。

时间:左腿内侧35 | 右腿外145
这时的我做什呢?都不用做。。。就坐着用手机上消磨时间吧

疗结束后,会进的按摩,晶的脂肪增加胞破坏的效率。*此刻,你会觉的大腿好像刚从冰箱里拿出已经冻结的肥猪肉!哈哈哈!

程后无需休息期(downtime)可以正常作息。皮表面有淤一下好像有淤硬邦邦的感1星期后这种消失。

陈锦生解CoolAdvantage™酷塑优疗程的效,通常最着的效果是在治月后。那我就一起耐心期待3月后再与你分享成果
*
,就算有先进疗是需要一段时间来消除脂肪的,所以美想塑身的,一定要以正确的心耐心待效果哦,可超之急!

 

第一次体CoolAdvantage™酷塑优疗程的感想:

由于的地点就在市中心乌节路非常方便,氛也令人感舒适。
接待到医疗都很切,陈锦生接后,交发现人好趣,一直玩笑逗笑。那不是很好?不会搞得我病人好像上战场样紧张。而到我的烦恼时,看他耐心的听完我所出的每,在后都能慢慢地详细为我解答。陈医生推荐的也是针对我的需要,适合我,能接受的件下量身定做的程。
