One Step Closer to a Beach Body With Halley Body Slimming Clinic

The turquoise lagoon, shaded by young coconut palms. The sundrenched sand, soft and fine, has been calling out to me since 2 months ago when I did CoolSculpting with Halley Body Slimming Clinic (Halley Body).

It has been 2 months since my first session with Halley Body (which you can read here) and I was absolutely excited to find out exactly how much fat I've lost. My dresses certainly fit better these days and some of my shorts are even dropping from my waist! Hmm, maybe I have dropped a size unknowingly! I weighed myself constantly and I did shed a few kilos. My diet, however, has been largely the same although I did consciously try to control myself from eating cakes. I am relishing the thought of cladding on my bikini with pride. 
 
The moment of truth came during my mid review. They measured me. Am I a step closer to my dream washboard body? Though not quite flat yet, I lost an incredible 10cm! That's like 3.9inches! Even my weight had gone down by 2.4kg. Is that insane or what? Such incredible results for just one session! Let the numbers do the talking. Seeing is believing.

They clinic mentioned that I lost 1.5kg, but at home, I seem to have lost close to 3kg! Must be the thick dress I was wearing on the day of the mid review

 
During the review, Dr Terence Tan said that about 20% of my fat has been shed! Was there more to do then? I did become shapelier, but the blob concentrated in the middle was still quite an eyesore. Dr Tan then suggested we go through another round of CoolSculpting. In all honesty, I was delirious that more could still be done! But at the same time, I was worried about the discomfort which I had to bear for a week the previous time. So, once again, we went ahead with 12 applicators! Surprisingly, this round was very pleasurable. Previously I was shivering in the room. I don't know if it was the airconditioning or was it the fact that my fats were frozen? So this time around, I got smart. I brought along a crop jacket and socks! I was so comfortable, during one application, I actually fell asleep! 
 
To prepare for the treatment, Dr. Terence Tan first used the CoolAdvantage templates to mark out the areas that required treatment. The clinic assistant, Rebecca, then applied gel pads onto the treatment area to protect the skin during treatment. After each treatment cycle, Rebecca removed the applicator and massaged the treated area. Though there was slight discomfort, it was manageable. This helped to speed up the breakdown of the crystallised, dead fat cells, which will be passed out by the body naturally. As sadistic as it sounds, there was a sudden surge of ecstasy each time she massaged, as it meant that the scene where the fine white sand touches with the luminous pink of the setting sun, is not too distant!

Several machines working in tandem

The aftermath was really good too. If you recall, during my first treatment, there had been bruises and redness immediately after treatment. However this time around, NOTHING. There was absolutely no downtime and I was prancing to dinner after about 5 hours. This was shorter than my first round. This was because, my area of fats has decreased and I was able to have on me multiple applicators working in tandem. Each application was 35 minutes hence time was significantly cut since a few applicators were working together.
 
Here was the treatment prescribed for me:
- 10 CoolAdvantage applicators
- Two CoolAdvantage Petite applicators
Upper abdomen: Two CoolAdvantage
Lower abdomen: Four CoolAdvantage
Left flank: 2 CoolAdvantage 1 CoolAdvantage Petite
Right flank: 2 CoolAdvantage 1 CoolAdvantage Petite

In between, however, one of the applicators indicated a "thermal error" after running for a few minutes. It is a safety feature built into the CoolSculpting machine, which stops the treatment when it detects that the area treated is getting too cold. I learnt that each applicator has sensors which would regulate the temperature. The temperature has to be maintained at minus 11 degrees celsius. This meant that I could only proceed with treatment for that area 24 hours later. This was really reassuring that caution had been exercised when building this machine.

Definitely flatter tummy!

Can you see my curves?

Tried to pinch a layer of fats and this is all I could manage. 

 
 
Here's a video of how the entire process looks like
 
Dr. Tan mentioned that more fats will be frozen with this second session. However, it isn't an overnight thing. it will take approximately 2 to 3 months for visible results to show. For that flatter tummy and bye bye mumtum, I am willing to wait! How do you feel about wearing a bikini and strutting down the golden beach? Most of us would shy away from it and after having two kids, I was certainly in that category as well. I thought all hope was lost since I did not want anything invasive to be done, but lo and behold, CoolSculpting arrived! I thought it was just a dream to feel confident when I put on that bikini. But looks like dreams do come true! We just have to let it go! Let the fats go in this case!

Mid-Treatment Results of Coolsculpting With Halley Body Slimming Clinic

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Friday, 06 March 2020 16:23

After my first round of 12 CoolSculpting Applicators ( read about it here – there is plenty of other information in this post relating to CoolSculpting as well), I was due for my mid-treatment review with Halley Body Slimming Clinic in late November last year.

CoolSculpting Fat Reduction Results Halley Medical Aesthetics Singapore Review

Before that, I had already noticed obvious differences, like how my clothes hang on my body. From being able to wear clothing I hadn’t been able to in years, to noticing a significant gap between my waist and my shorts – I now look in the kids' sections for my clothing needs!

These shorts are size 34.
 

I feel the difference even when I am sitting down. I’m really not particularly good at angling myself for photos, but there were no obvious bulges at my tummy area by the 7th week after my treatment, and I have more of a curve now that my waistline is smaller.

The moment of truth came during my mid-treatment review with Dr. Terence Tan of Halley Body Sliming Clinic after my first session (which you can read about here) when we took down all my measurements again. Here are the changes measured:

Weight : 45.8kg -> 44.7kg
BMI: 19.0 -> 18.6
Body Fat %: 27.9 -> 26.6
Waist: 75.6cm -> 70.5cm

If you look at my progress from the very first visit two years ago, there are even more significant reductions (10.5cm off my waist!), which have been sustained even though I had taken a 2-year break from CoolSculpting.

Weight : 48.8kg -> 44.7kg
BMI: 20.3 -> 18.6
Body Fat %: 29.1 -> 26.6
Waist: 81cm -> 70.5cm

Dr. Terence Tan took a look at my shape during my mid-treatment review and to see where else we should sculpt. After the consultation, he prescribed a total of 8 CoolAdvantage applicators and 4 CoolAdvantage Petite applicators for the next round of treatment. 

Upper abdomen: 2 CoolAdvantage 1 CoolAdvantage Petite
Lower abdomen: 2 CoolAdvantage 1 CoolAdvantage Petite
Left flank: 2 CoolAdvantage 1 CoolAdvantage Petite
Right flank: 2 CoolAdvantage 1 CoolAdvantage Petite

Each needed an application time of 35 minutes.

One thing about fat reduction is you’ll now be able to see your previously hidden stretch marks and some loose skin as well.
 

Now that I have lost quite a bit of fats from my first round of 12 applicators, I find this round of treatment to be more uncomfortable as compared to before – so much so that I needed to hold one stress ball in each of my hands to help me get over the discomfort for the first 10 minutes of each application. I also felt much colder during the treatment. Thankfully, the specialists at Halley Body Slimming Clinic took very good care of me by providing me with many warm cups of milo and adequate cover-up.

CoolSculpting Fat Reduction Results Halley Medical Aesthetics Singapore Review

Halley Body Slimming Clinic has a total of 6 CoolSculpting machines that can be used at the same time. However, because I had gotten smaller in size after my first round of 12 CoolSculpting applicators, they were only able to apply a maximum of 2 applicators at the same time – I just didn’t have enough surface area for them to do more!

These pictures were taken right after completing all 12 CoolSculpting applicators. There was some redness at the application areas right after application, but as you can see, the redness on other application sites have already gone away. It is normal to feel that the application site looked lumpy or flabby after treatment, but this will be resolved over time as your body passes out the dead fat cells.

This is how my midsection looks like on Day 8 after the second set of 12 CoolSculpting applicators with Halley Body Slimming Clinic. I had experienced quite a bit of discomfort after my round 1 of 12 CoolSculpting applicators, but this time around it was completely different. Even though I could still feel some swelling and slight pins and needles in my treatment areas, I was very comfortable when I was going about my day to day activities.

CoolSculpting is a treatment that permanently kills fat cells. I will need to wait around 12 weeks to fully pass out fat cells that were targetted during round 2 of my treatment, but given that I was still experiencing slight swelling, it already looked pretty. I’m looking forward to even more visible results!

Pastel Blue Eyeshadow Tutorial for Spring 2020

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

The makeup trends for Spring 2020 are a visual feast. From colourful eyeshadows to bold graphic liners, Spring makeup is getting as exciting as can be.

But like we mentioned earlier in another article, one of our favourite, and the easiest to wear is the pastel blue eyeshadow. This is nothing new to the '90s and '00 kids when pastel blue washed over our entire lids was a thing. However, for those of you who are so used to your usual browns and corals, here's a tutorial to help you hop on to the makeup trend.

Spring 2020 is a time for all makeup maximalists. Gone were the natural-looking browns and taupes, with bold neon shades and candy floss pastel colours taking over our makeup palettes.

One of the most wearable shades from the runways has got to be pastel blue. Bring back the '90s when we wash our entire lids with one shade of pastel blue, because Spring 2020 is seeing a major throwback to this makeup trend. Marc Jacobs sent Gigi Hadid down the runway with pastel blue eyeshadow for his Spring 2020 collection and that channelled major Spring vibes.

To achieve that Gigi Hadid eye makeup look, use a fluffy eyeshadow brush and apply pastel blue eyeshadow all over your eyelids, and sweep the colour along your lower lash line. Dab your brush into some shimmer and apply them at the inner corners of your eyes to open them up.

Try Dior 5 Couleurs Glow Vibes in Blue Beat. It has got the perfect pastel blue shade, including pastel pink and green for you to play around with.

The Secret to Youthful Skin - Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum and Eye Cream

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Thursday, 27 February 2020 15:01

When is the best age to start on an anti-aging skincare regimen? No one has the answer. But I'll say, as early as possible.

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum Eye Cream Review Singapore

It is much easier to maintain your youthful skin than to try and reverse all the damage years later. I started my anti-aging skincare regimen when I was 23 and I've never regretted it. However, your anti-ageing skincare products should change as you age as your skin condition changes over time.

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum and Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Eye Cream are anti-aging products that are suitable for all ages though, because they aren't too heavy for those in their 20s, nor are they too light for older skin that requires a stronger concoction. 

 

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum ($279)

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum Eye Cream Review Singapore

This anti-aging serum is naturally-derived and fights visible signs of aging to transform our skin. Its youth-restoring secret lies in its Plantscription signature vital-plant technology, a potent ingredient combination that features Anogeissus Bark Extract and Bamboo Complex to boost hydration and soften fine lines. 

Upon application, my skin felt soft, hydrated, and plumped up. There is no artificial smell, but instead, it comes with a comfortable, light herbal scent. The serum is pretty lightweight and absorbs into my skin fairly quickly. With continued use, you can expect to see brighter and more radiant skin with your fine lines minimised.

 

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Eye Cream ($83)

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum Eye Cream Review Singapore

The area around our eyes ages the fastest since the skin is thinner there and that makes it susceptible to fine lines, wrinkles, and even a loss of skin elasticity. Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Eye Cream is a hydrating eye cream that will visibly reduce and smooth fine lines around the eye with Anogeissus Bark Extract, plumps and lift the skin with Crithmum Maritimum, Bamboo and Pea Extract, and minimises puffiness with the golden combination of Golden Chamomile and Algae.

Just like the serum, the cream is very lightweight and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. After using it for a while, crepey lids and fine lines are reduced. If you often wake up with puffy eyes, this is one of the few rare eye creams that reduce eye puffiness as well. 

 

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum and Eye Cream are available at Origins stores islandwide and Lazada.
