Beauty Review

My Coolsculpting Experience at Halley Medical Aesthetics


After giving birth to 2 kids via C-section and putting on a considerable amount of weight, my tummy has gone through a lot.

I have a very unsightly double bulge and was looking for solutions to improve the appearance of my mum tum. I wasn't open to surgery for now and needed a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that would not affect my breastfeeding. I read a few reviews from fellow mummy bloggers about CoolSculpting and was super intrigued about it.

I made an appointment with Dr. Terence Tan from Halley Medical Aesthetics located at Orchard Gateway to find out more about the treatment and here's what I learnt.


About CoolSculpting

I met up with Dr. Terence Tan and he shared that CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime fat reduction treatment. It is the only USA FDA-approved fat freezing treatment that uses the concept of cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells, which are then disposed from the body naturally.

He also shared that the treatment removes 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area each time. The science behind it is that our body is unable to produce any new fat cells after five years of age. The fat cells that die during the fat freezing process will be gone forever which is why CoolSculpting is an ideal treatment for removing unwanted fat which can't be removed through spot toning exercises.

Some areas that can be treated are the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, back, banana roll (butt cheeks), knees, cheeks, and even the double chin!



He shared that the difference between the CoolAdvantage range of applicators prescribed for me versus the legacy CoolSculpting applicators is that CoolAdvantage reduces the treatment time by nearly half and also features an enhanced cup design for better comfort. It also has a larger cooling area to treat a bigger area.

To reduce treatment time even further for patients, Halley also offers QuadSculpting, which is the usage of four CoolSculpting machines in tandem to reduce treatment time by up to 85% with CoolAdvantage applicators.

Dr. Terence Tan prescribed four CoolAdvantage applicators to help treat the stubborn fat on my tummy. As there is an overlap of the treatment areas on my tummy, my treatment plan would be split into two sessions. Dr. Terence Tan hopes that by pairing the latest fat reduction technology with smart slimming strategies, Halley can help me achieve my body goal.


During the treatment

Dr. Terence Tan first used the CoolAdvantage templates to mark out the areas that require treatment.

His clinic assistant then applies the gel pads onto the treatment areas to protect the skin during treatment. We took about 35 minutes for each CoolAdvantage treatment cycle.

How did I feel? During the procedure, the treated area just felt cold but it definitely wasn't unbearable. Although there was some discomfort for me for the first few minutes, it was fine after a while and I could even watch my TV shows after that.

After the treatment cycle, Dr. Tan's clinic assistant removed the applicator and helped to massage the treated area to help break down the crystallised dead fat cells which will be passed out by the body naturally.

I will be going for my second session next month and I can't wait to see results!


After the treatment

Dr. Terence Tan shared that there might be some slight discomfort for a few days after the treatment. Some people shared that it felt like muscle aches.

But until now, I didn't feel any pain or aches at all.


Treatment cost

For those who asked about the price, the four CoolAdvantage applicators treatment costs $3,040. For more info about CoolSculpting, do check out this link. I will share my final result after the final treatment! Do look out for my blog post!

Thankyou Halley and Dr. Terence Tan for being so patient and gentle with me. Great experience!
