It has been almost 5 months since my CoolSculpting treatment with Halley Body Slimming Clinic (Halley Body). You can read about my experience here.
As promised, I'm going to reveal the results of the CoolSculpting treatment. Honestly, over the months, I do feel that my pants are looser and my tummy flatter, giving me more confidence when I wear crop tops.
I'm extremely happy with the results. If I have not tried CoolSculpting, I would never know that fat reduction without exercise or diet is possible.
Imagine, just sitting in the treatment room with the applicators working on my problem areas and getting rid of my fats while I watch Netflix! Sounds like a dream isn't it?
For those who are reading my CoolSculpting experience for the first time, CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime fat reduction treatment. It’s the only US FDA-approved fat freezing treatment that uses the concept of cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells which are then disposed from the body naturally. As our body is unable to produce new fat cells after we reach 5 years old, the dead fat cells from fat freezing will be gone forever. Usually, about 20 - 25% of the fat cells are removed from the treated area.
I had my final review in February 2020 after my treatment in September 2019. It involved taking all the measurements again of my tummy and flanks, we also took photos of the treated areas so that we can see the before and after differences. Dr Terence Tan showed me my results on his laptop after we took the measurements and I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
You can see from the photos how much flatter my tummy is now compared to how it looked like previously. My waistline is so much more defined now.
The marks on the first photo showed the areas where the applicators were placed and it is very obvious that these areas flattened significantly. The fat freezing treatment also helps to remove the unsightly bulge from the unevenly distributed fats on my torso and smoothen the overall look of my midsection. CoolSculpting indeed delivers its promise to reduce 20-25% of fats.
If not for the Christmas and Chinese New Year period when I gained a little weight from the festive feasting, I believed that the fat reduction results would be even better. Paired with a diet plan, I am confident that a beautiful body can be achieved. Unfortunately for me, I totally didn’t watch my diet and my weight even increase a little, yet I could still yield such amazing results from the treatment. All thanks to the experts from Halley Body’s team and Dr Terence Tan.
I will definitely do CoolSculpting again in the future if I gain more fat from overeating or aging. I’m even considering doing CoolSculpting on other parts of my body. Yes, it’s so effective that I want to do it again.
For those of you who are desperately wanting to do spot reduction on certain parts of your body because no amount of exercise can get rid of those stubborn fats, you can definitely consider CoolSculpting. Drop Halley Body an email to enquire and book your consultation with Dr. Terence Tan. I’m sure you will love Dr Terence Tan as he is one of the friendliest doctors I’ve met.

Age is catching up on me now that I'm in my late 30s. I notice things like crow's feet, fine lines, hollows under my eyes, as well as a general feeling that collagen has left the house. It’s time for skin rejuvenation – I want to look like me, but refreshed.
Picking my aesthetic doctor
I went to see Dr. Terence Tan at Halley Medical Aesthetics because while any certified doctor can perform the same treatments I needed, it is very important to pick an aesthetic doctor with a similar aesthetic taste as yourself.
I have known Dr. Terence Tan of Halley Medical Aesthetics for a long time and, having seen very good results from my CoolSculpting at Halley Body Slimming Clinic, and having seen him fix areas I clearly missed out on myself, I naturally have trust in his taste.
Treatment plan and understanding fillers
After listening to my concerns, requirements and examining my face, Dr. Terence Tan recommended Botox and the Juvéderm brand of Dermal Fillers, which are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a natural compound found in the body that helps to hydrate and moisturise our skin. It also keeps our skin plump and glowing.
He explained that the difference between the different types of dermal fillers lies in how densely their molecular weights are cross-linked together:
- The softest, most spreadable dermal filler is suitable to fill in under eyes without looking overdone
- A slightly denser dermal filler can fill out hollows
- A firm dermal filler can be used to balance out facial structure
At the end of my consultation, Dr. Terence Tan prescribed a combination of fillers and Botox to create a natural yet effective lift to my face:
- Botox for treating my crow’s feet and for giving me a slight brow lift
- Juvederm Volbella (softest, most spreadable filler) under my eyes
- Juvederm Volift (medium density filler) at my cheek area to lift sagginess
- Juvederm Volift at my marionette lines
- Juvederm Volux, (firm filler) at my chin, to balance out my face shape because I have an underdeveloped chin
I felt comfortable during the fillers and Botox procedures because Dr. Terence Tan was diligent in letting me know what he was doing at the moment. I was also given a mirror to check and see if everything were to my liking.
Dr. Terence Tan injected the fillers using the “Magic Needle” ( actually, a micro-cannula) because it distributes the filler more evenly and enables him to apply the filler with minimal pain and no bruising. I was apprehensive at first because it looked blunt and I imagined it to be painful. But, I can now confirm that the discomfort level was very low.
Juvederm fillers contain lidocaine, an anesthesia, which probably helped a lot, but the discomfort level of my entire treatment was so manageable, I received the fillers without any numbing cream, relying only on the application of an ice pack to numb the injection area.
The treatment took only a short while because Dr. Tan was swift and decisive. In no time, I have the refreshed look I wanted and a more balanced face from the chin fillers.
Before and after
Right after my treatment, Dr. Terence Tan and I sat down to look at the differences with my before and after photos excitedly.
These pictures were taken just before the treatment and right after the treatment, on the same day.
The dark circles were from the 4 hours of sleep I had the day before, but the lift to my under eyes was immediately noticeable and extremely obvious. What pleased me a lot, which might not be very apparent in the photos, was how much more balanced my face looked.
I felt soreness in the first few days and my chin was bruised and swollen at the underside, such that it looked imbalanced. Dr. Terence Tan made time to see me for a short consultation to assure me that the bruising and swelling will go away in around a week’s time, and that injectables such as fillers need time to settle. In his own words “I could perhaps have spoken to you over the phone, but I think you will feel better if I see you and gave you that assurance in person”. Yes, it really did put me at ease!
These pictures were taken in the next few days after my treatment, where you can see the effects of Botox setting in as well. The swelling also went away and the chin looked more balanced.
No more crows feet when I laugh heartily, the lines under my eyes are diminished but not so smoothed out that I look unreal. Overall, I look fresh and my face is better balanced. I’m super happy with the results of course!

From tweezing to waxing and microblading, we've tried many ways to achieve those Insta-worthy brows like that of Cara Delevigne. And the new kid on the block? Eyebrow lamination.
Eyebrow lamination hails from Russia, and has became a really big deal in the west. It helps both ladies and gentlemen to achieve those full brows minus the pain of microblading. Only one or two brow salons are offering the eyebrow lamination in Singapore, but I'm sure it will pick up momentum over time.

Eyebrow lamination is basically a perm for your eyebrows to tame unruly hair and set them in place. It is a keratin treatment to give your eyebrows that "just combed" effect to create an illusion of thicker and fuller brows since they are fluffier and more defined after treatment. Unlike microblading, there is absolutely no cuts and no pain involved.

How does it work?
Just like any eyebrow service, the beauty therapist should help you decide on the right eyebrow shape and style for you. Once that is done, she will apply a solution onto your eyebrows to make them straight and flexible and set them in place. After that, the beauty therapist should apply a nourishing serum to keep your eyebrows strong and healthy and ta-da! Your eyebrow lamination is completed.

The treatment takes around an hour to complete, there is absolutely no downtime. Eyebrow lamination can last for about 4 to 6 weeks and you can expect natural and fluffy brows that requires minimal grooming.

To be honest, I was never really very fat since young. But as I age and with my job being a food and lifestyle blogger, I have put on more than 10kg for the past 7 years.
Though my face doesn’t really show my weight gain since I have a very long face, I have a big tummy. Hence, I have decided to visit Dr. Terence Tan from Halley Body Slimming Clinic (Halley Body) last October to seek help.
As shared in my first post, my CoolSculpting treatment with Dr. Terence focused on my abdomen and flank (love handles).
Fast forward, it has been 6 months since my CoolSculpting treatment and recently I went back to Halley Body Slimming Clinic for the final review.
November and December are the busiest period for many of the lifestyle and food bloggers, with Christmas and Chinese New Year food tastings back to back. Therefore, I do not have much time to exercise and I have been eating way too much. But to my surprise, my measurements were much better than I expected.
Weight:58Kg -> 58kg
BMI: 22.9 -> 22.7
Waist: 76cm -> 72cm
% body fat: 32.4 -> 32.5
Muscle: 26.3 -> 26.3
I fondly remember that I like to wear tight-fitting clothes before I reach my 30s. As my figure went out of shape, I was hesitant to wear them as I felt fat. However, 2 months after the CoolSculpting treatment, with my tummy getting smaller, I have started wearing more tight-fitting clothes again with confidence.
I like it that CoolSculpting is a non-invasive gradual fat loss process with no downtime. So, there is no side effect of loose skin around the treated area, unlike liposuction. I can’t share with you how happy I am with my CoolSculpting result. In fact, I often got compliments that I have lost weight or to be more specific, my tummy has become smaller even without having the luxury to workout these couple of months.
Hence, if you are considering to do CoolSculpting treatment, I would definitely recommend Dr. Terence Tan and his team from Halley Body Slimming Clinic, because an experienced doctor and CoolSculpting team really play a big part in aesthetics treatment.
They use authentic CoolSculpting machines, which means you would see the result that scientific papers have reported, which is a reduction of 20-25% of fat on the treated area each time. Their therapists are trained and certified by CoolSculpting University, a training programme which ensures that quality is maintained amongst the clinics that offer CoolSculpting. And finally, Halley Body Slimming Clinic has all the CoolSculpting equipment needed to treat different areas on your body, including the double chin.
