It's sad but true, age will slow down our metabolism rate and increase fat deposits on our body. I used to have a very flat stomach and a very lean upper body. Recent years, I noticed the appearance of love handles which is so hard to get rid of even with a strict diet or regular exercise.

When Dr. Terence Tan of Halley Body Slimming Clinic (Halley Body) told me about removing the fat on my abdomen and flanks area with CoolSculpting, I immediately agreed. Halley Body focuses on non-invasive and no downtime methods of weight management, fat reduction, body firming, and muscle toning. Dr. Terence Tan is also the Medical Director of Halley Body’s sister clinic, Halley Medical Aesthetics, which focuses on medical aesthetic treatments for the face.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

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 and destroy unwanted fat cells. The frozen fat cells are then slowly eliminated from our body naturally. Because our body is unable to produce any new fat cells after five years old, the frozen fat cells which are now dead will be removed from our body forever. CoolSculpting can help to remove up to 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area each time. Hence, CoolSculpting is used to remove unwanted fat which cannot be removed through spot toning exercises. Areas that can be treated include the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, back, banana roll (butt cheeks), knees, and even the double chin and cheeks.

During the consultation, Dr. Terence Tan explained in detail what I should expect during the treatment process. He was very detailed and humorous. He assured me on the safety aspect of the treatment and addressed all my concerns with patience. I always find that it is very important to communicate the expectations clearly with the doctor so that both parties will be happy with the end results without any miscommunication. I was actually surprised to be told that after CoolSculpting treatment, there will not be any significant difference in my weight. The amount of fats removed will not be dramatic enough to cause a huge weight difference. CoolSculpting is not a diet session but more of a fat removal treatment to sculpt your body into a more defined shape.

After a body analysis and examining the fat on the abdomen area, Dr. Terence Tan prescribed 12 CoolAdvantage applicators in one session to treat the stubborn fat on my abdomen and flanks. The CoolAdvantage range of applicators from CoolSculpting reduces treatment time by nearly half. That’s because, with the traditional CoolSculpting applicator, each treatment would take 60 mins, but the duration is reduced to 35 mins with the CoolAdvantage. The CoolAdvantage range of applicators also features an enhanced cup design for improved patient comfort as well as a larger cooling area to treat a bigger area. With all these new updates in place, Dr. Terence Tan prescribed 12 applicators for best results.

Halley Body also offers the QuadSculpting method of fat freezing, where four CoolSculpting machines are used at the same time, which can reduce total treatment time by up to 85% with CoolAdvantage applicators. For my treatment, a maximum of 2 machines (or DualSculpting) could be used at the same time.

I was taken into a private room to change into comfortable clothes, while the clinic assistant prepared for my treatment. I like how bright the room looked, especially the high ceiling. It made the room spacious.

To prepare for the treatment, the clinic assistant started by using CoolAdvantage templates to mark out the areas that required treatment. Once she finished marking, photos were then taken, and all my measurements recorded. I was then told to lie down on the treatment bed to get ready for the treatment.

Before the applicator was placed on my skin, a thin cooling gel pad was placed on my skin to protect my skin during treatment. Dr. Terence Tan showed me the temperature strip inside the applicator, and explained that the applicator will automatically stop the treatment if it sensed that the temperature of the treatment area has dropped below a certain point. This is one of the safety features of CoolSculpting, which assures us that the entire treatment is 100% safe.

Dr. Terence Tan then carefully placed one applicator on me. I can feel the suction from the applicator which helped to hold it in place. Then I started feeling numb on the area, a feeling similar to what you’d feel if you are to hold onto a piece of dry ice for a long time. The feeling lasted about 10 minutes and I didn’t feel anything after that.

I can comfortably do my work or watch Netflix on my laptop during the treatment. Time actually passed really fast. I’m amazed that each section only required 35 minutes of treatment. In total, the 12-applicator session took around 7 hours to complete compared to the 12 hours it would have taken if the legacy applicators were used one by one. I had some breaks in between, so if I had done 6 sessions with two applicators each time, the total treatment duration would have only been 3.5 hour. In between the treatment, I could take a rest and go to the restroom or buy food to eat. The clinic assistants were very kind and they brought me drinks throughout the treatment. After each treatment cycle, the clinic assistant would remove the applicator and massage the treated area. This helps to speed up the break down of the crystallised dead fat cells, which will be passed out by the body naturally.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

Honestly, the massage feels really sore since my fat are now frozen. But I do welcome the massage to help circulate blood flow to the treated area. I started my treatment from 1 pm and ended at around 8pm, just in time for dinner. There is no downtime after CoolSculpting and I can resume my normal activities right after it. I went for dinner and a movie right after my 7 hours treatment. I love how conveniently Halley Body is located right in the middle of Orchard Road. Results from CoolSculpting are expected three months after treatment. Stay tuned to see my results after this treatment. I’m excited to find out too.

Freezing My Fats Away at Halley Body Slimming Clinic

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Tuesday, 24 December 2019 07:00

Two years ago, I tried CoolSculpting by Halley Medical Aesthetics for fat cells reduction at specific areas. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment whereby you destroy up to 25% of the fat cells in each treatment area each time by freezing them. And because our body is unable to produce any more fat cells after 5 years of age, they are gone permanently after the treatment.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

Back then, I had a total of 4 cycles (i.e. 4 applicators) done, 2 on my upper tummy and 2 on my lower tummy with some overlap. I went through zero lifestyle change and ate as I like during my travels after treatment. The treatments did not make my tummy washboard flat but the results were noticeable and they made a real difference to me.

In the past 2 years, I gradually developed a liking to jogging in the mornings (jogging will not slim the tummy though) and started intermittent fasting. These habits, together with occasionally being on a diet, helped me manage my body fat to some extent. However, even after I put in all these hard work, I am still some way off to the proportionate body shape I desire, which, was why I decided to go back to CoolSculpting again.

 

CONSULTATION DAY

I chose to work with Dr. Terence Tan from Halley Medical Aesthetics (I’m going to call the clinic “Halley” from here on) again on CoolSculpting because, as far as I know, they have a lot of experience with CoolSculpting. It’s important to ensure that you go to a doctor who is experienced in this treatment because it is an investment and you want to make sure every treatment is as effective as it can possibly be.

In fact, Halley opened a new sister clinic—Halley Body Slimming Clinic (I’m going to call the Sliming Clinic “Halley Body” from here on) in October 2019 as an extension of what it has been doing to help people achieve their body goals. Halley focuses on facial aesthetic concerns of patients while Halley Body focuses on delivering end-to-end body slimming, body contouring, and muscle toning treatments to patients. In fact, Halley Body was newly minted when I did this second round of CoolSculpting with them.

Going back to the same doctor also meant that we could use my previous results as an indication of how my body takes to CoolSculpting. Since I had noticeable results after just 4 cycles, we decided on the application of 12 cycles this time round, to target specific areas I was dissatisfied with.

When I went back, I had a consultation with Dr. Terence Tan after I had some measurements done (e.g. weight, height, body fat percentage, blood pressure). He explained the treatment once again and gave me sufficient time to ask any questions I might have, even though I was already familiar with the treatment and its procedures.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

We proceeded to mark out treatment areas on the same day as well. The fact that I was going for 12 CoolSculpting cycles meant that he could really map out problem areas to his heart’s content. Compared to my tummy, my flanks are relatively small, so he prescribed 10 CoolAdvantage applicators to my tummy and 2 CoolAdvantage Petite (smaller) applicators to my flanks.

TREATMENT DAY

My treatment day was 2 days after the consultation. On that day, treatment areas were mapped out again, based on photographs taken on consultation day. While I was having my treatment, I received many comments on Instagram via DM to ask if I really had any fat to reduce, so I took the next photos to dispel your doubts.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

The treatments are applied by trained CoolSculpting staff in the clinic but Dr Terence Tan came to check in on me in between, to make sure I was alright.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

This is how a CoolAdvantage applicator looks like. It may look smaller compared to a legacy CoolSculpting applicator, but in actual fact, it features an enhanced cup design for improved patient comfort as well as a larger freezing area to treat a bigger area. Treatment time for the traditional CoolSculpting applicator takes 60 mins but this duration is reduced to 35 mins with the CoolAdvantage applicator.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

I have a lot of trust in the staff applying the CoolSculpting applicator on me. She carefully planned the areas to put on first, so that my entire treatment will be comfortable yet effective for me – these judgment calls come from their experience of having performed the treatment many times over. The same staff massaged each treatment area after each treatment to help speed up the break down of my fat cells for maximum effectiveness.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

One of the most common questions I get about CoolSculpting is whether the treatment is painful. Based on my experience and my friends who have also undergone CoolSculpting, there will be some areas that are more uncomfortable for you than others, and the same is different for each person.

When the applicator is applied, you will first experience very strong suction at a low temperature. I personally only feel very uncomfortable when the applicator was placed on my upper tummy but all discomfort goes away after the 6th to 7th-minute mark, so the discomfort is not prolonged. I have to say that though I dreaded the massage session after each application because my treatment areas felt raw immediately after treatment – in this sense, having 12 applicators done is indeed much more uncomfortable than 4.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

The fact that I can speak with the doctor, reply text messages and watch a Korean drama on my phone while being treated is a testament of how bearable the discomfort is to me. I also fell asleep throughout when they were applying my last applicator.

Halley Body has six CoolSculpting machines, which means I can have more than 1 treatment done at the same time, saving me a considerable amount of time, given that each applicator requires 35 mins to complete its job. At the maximum, I received 3 treatments at one time, largely because my treatment areas overlap and because I am so petite that they are not able to fit 4 on me all at once.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

It took slightly more than 4 hours for me to complete 12 cycles without break. You can request to go to the toilet or even have your meals in between treatment, but I opt not to, so that the treatment time can be as compact as possible. My suggestion is to come with snacks/food in case you become hungry and visit the toilet just before treatment.

After treatment, I was taken for measurements and there was already a 1.1 cm reduction around my waist plus a reduction in body fat, according to the weighing machine.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

 

AFTERCARE

For me, the real “pain” of CoolSculpting comes a day after. While I do not have any bruises, after your body fat cells get broken down by freezing, you will feel a tingling sensation all across the surface of your skin and the feeling of having a layer of liquid right underneath your skin. In addition, treatment areas will swell up – I felt and looked like I was 5 to 6 months pregnant.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

The swelling affected my jogging routine. I felt a sharp stretching sensation whenever I tried to run and the feeling of having liquid go in all directions when I  exercise was too much for me to bear. For me, the swelling stage did not happen (or it was not noticeable to me) with 4 cycles but it was very obvious when I did the 12 cycles. The swelling took around 9 days to subside, and the sharp stretching sensations were gone with it. I made sure to moisturise and take care of the skin on my tummy during that period, to avoid any stretch marks from the sudden swelling. The tinging sensation did not really bother me unless someone touches it.

 

CURRENT

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

This is me a day short of being at week 3, finally fitting into a pair of skorts I have not been able to wear since 2015. Results will only show after three months and I have another round of treatment to complete in 8 weeks’ time but here I am, able to wear something that I couldn't for the first time in 4 years. That makes me excited – very excited.

Beach Holiday, Here I Come! Thanks to Coolsculpting with Halley Body Slimming Clinic

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Monday, 23 December 2019 09:00

I was one of those tanned beach babe wannabe once upon a time. 

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
The pristine beach was covered with powdered white sand. Colourful towels ornamented the sun-bleached landscape. Tanned bodies in fancy bikinis, strutting along the edge of the water or lying in the scorching hot sun with a pair of sunglasses. I was one of those tanned beach babe wannabes once upon a time. When I was in my twenties, hanging out at the beaches of Sentosa every weekend was the coolest thing to do. While I didn't exactly have washboard abs back then, I was definitely on the slim side. 
 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
Fast forward 20 years later, after giving birth to 2 lovely children, I still harbour the thought of being a beach babe but the obstruction is big. With childbirth, motherhood, and of course, age, my tummy was screaming the word FAT. The flabby lump together with my loose skin after childbirth was quite a scary sight. I was very conscious each time I put on my bikini, so much so that I retreated into wearing a one-piece or even my sports shorts when I go swimming. Every weekend, when my children are having their swimming lessons, their father would be the one in the pool with them. They asked me why. It wasn't that I can't swim. I can. And am good at it. I was simply a little uncomfortable with that blob. 
 
For years, I tried dieting and exercising but to no avail. Crash diets caused me to have a very bad case of gastritis back then and intense gave me bad knees. So when I heard about CoolSculpting that was offered at Halley Body Slimming Clinic (Halley Body), you can imagine how happy I was! Finally, a non-invasive treatment to get rid of my fats!
 

What is CoolSculpting?

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
CoolSculpting®  is an US FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that utilises cryolipolysis technology that targets only fat cells. No needles! 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. Meaning to say, you are able to reduce the fats at your tummy, your arms, your love-handles, your thighs or even your chin! It is very specific. It isn't a weight loss program which in most cases may not be sustainable should you lead an unhealthy lifestyle. It is a fat reduction procedure which helps you to achieve the contours that you've always wanted. 
 

Did you know?

Did you know that at the age of 5, the body stops producing new fat cells? Hence, whatever fat cells you lose during cryolipolysis, you lose them forever! The remaining fat cells merely become bigger or smaller. The actual number of fat cells remain exactly the same. The skin, muscle, connective tissues and nerves are not affected. CoolSculpting reduces up to 25% of fat cells in the treated areas each time. It is really the answer to achieving that hour-glass figure which every girl wants. 
 

My experience with CoolSculpting

Consultation
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
On the day of the consultation, prior to meeting Dr Terence Tan, the Medical Director of Halley Body and its sister clinic for facial aesthetics, Halley Medical Aesthetics, the clinic assistant took my weight, waist measurements and blood pressure. Halley Body specialises in non-invasive no downtime weight management, fat reduction, body firming, and muscle toning treatments. The team at Halley Body had to ascertain if I was a good candidate for the procedure. You see, not everyone is suitable for this procedure. It is best to let the doctor assess your condition and let him prescribe the most suitable fat reduction treatment for you as there are many options available. During the actual consultation with Dr Terence Tan, he asked me several questions which included whether I was on any dieting pills. Dr. Terence Tan prescribed 11 CoolAdvantage and one CoolAdvantage Plus applicators to treat the stubborn fat on my abdomen and flanks. Compared to legacy CoolSculpting applicators, the CoolAdvantage range of applicators reduces treatment time by nearly half depending on the type of applicator used.
 
For instance, treatment time for the traditional CoolSculpting applicator takes 60 mins but this duration is reduced to 35 mins with the CoolAdvantage applicator. The CoolAdvantage range of applicators also features an enhanced cup design for improved patient comfort as well as a larger cooling area to treat a bigger area.

He then proceeded to mark out the various areas which needed attention. He pointed out that it was critical to mark them with different colours to avoid any mistakes made. After the consultation, I was given a form to sign my consent. 
 
 
 
The Actual Treatment
I didn't quite know what to expect. I was only told that each CoolAdvantage applicator would take 35 minutes. In addition, one CoolAdvantage Plus applicator would be used for the biggest area and that would take 45 minutes. Hence with 12 applicators being done, I would need a grand total of 430 minutes which translates to a whopping 7+hours! But of course, you may not require 12 applicators like me. It is a case to case basis and the number of applicators and sessions required by each individual is different. But we were all out to kill those stubborn fats, hence 12 was my magic number. I was armed with my battery pack, my snacks and a book. I even told myself this was the perfect time to do nothing but sleep! I was looking forward to it. 
 
Step 1:
 
I put on a dress on that day as I read that while there wasn't going to be any downtime, except that the treated area may swell a little. Hence, a loose dress would be ideal. I was given an outfit to change into. It consisted of a spaghetti top and baggy pants. 
 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
Mandy, the friendly therapist, marked out my areas for treatment as per Dr Terrence Tan's initial CoolSculpting plan. I looked like I was going for a major liposuction procedure. The markings were done to ensure proper placement of the applicators. The applicators came in various sizes as different surface area required different sizes. I proceeded to lie down on the recliner and was given pillows and blankets to keep me comfortable. Mandy was really friendly and constantly checked if I was feeling alright. 
 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
A call bell was given to me in case I needed any assistance during the procedure should the therapist be out of the room. 
 
 
Step 2:
 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
A cooling gel-pad was placed over the area where an applicator was going to be placed. This pad protects the skin during treatment
 
 
Step 3:

Next, the CoolAdvantage applicator was placed over it. The applicator uses vacuum pressure to draw tissues into the cooling panels. On a scale of 10 for discomfort, I gave this a 0.5. Its tugging wasn't painful at all and after minutes of application, I could feel the cooling sensation. This subsequently caused that area to be numbed. I even fell asleep on several occasions. When the applicator was removed, the treated area was a little red and raised. Seeing that I was taking it well, Mandy proceeded to use two CoolAdvantage applicators at the same time.

In fact, for time-starved individuals, Halley Body offers QuadSculpting, which is the use of four CoolSculpting machines to treat four areas at one go! This can only be done if the four areas do not overlap. With that, the treatment duration will be four times faster! 
 
 
Step 4:
 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
The real deal came when the treated area was massaged. I would be lying if I told you I was as cool as a cucumber. I was not. The massage was not what one would usually get at a spa. On the pain-o-meter, this rated a 4/10 for me. However, this step was crucial to speed up the breakdown of the frozen dead fat cells following CoolSculpting. No pain no gain right? In fact, if one had gone through childbirth, particularly a C-section, this really was insignificant.
 
The entire procedure took approximately 6 hours for me, with a few toilet breaks in between. I was really enjoying my time on the chair, following up on social media, online shopping, and reading my favourite books. However, midway, I began to feel cold. I was shivering like a leaf and Mandy handed me an extra blanket. This was probably because the central aircon was a little cold. Note to self: to wear socks and probably put on a cropped jacket on my next visit. You would not want to be wearing anything long or covered up because the gel will get transferred to your outfit. 
 
Immediately after the process, I was bruised and there was temporary redness. I was assured that these were normal and will go away with time. I guess this is akin to the traditional Chinese way of using heated glass jars for better blood circulation -- Ba Guan. The bruise went away in about 3 days. 
 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
Day 1
I got up with an ache. This was unlike your typical muscle aches. I touched the treated areas and it felt wobbly and swollen at the same time. It was extremely sensitive and any close contact would see me hitting the person. There was a sensation of fullness and tenderness as I walked and I totally regretted not taking the day off. On the pain-o-meter, it was between 4 and 5/10 on day 1. 
Day 4 - 7 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
The tingling, sensitive and aching feeling, however, did diminish as the days went by and on approximately day 7, the discomfort reduced significantly. I did, however, felt swollen during this period of time and it felt like I had several fat globules swimming under my skin. These temporary side effects did not hinder my day to day activities.
After 2 weeks...
I was told that it takes about 2 to 3 months for the body to pass the dead fat cells out of the body. Visible results can be seen in a matter of weeks and in fact, I am beginning to feel that my clothes fit better and the bulge got smaller. 
 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
Even the husband commented that I didn't have much to squeeze. After treatment, your body gradually metabolizes and naturally expels the frozen fat cells.
 
Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

Numbers don't lie. I measured my girth under my belly button prior to CoolSculpting and it measured 89 cm. Now, it's 86cm. For the waist area, I am seeing a more significant decrease of approximately 5cm! That's almost 2 inches! Things have not even peaked yet. In some cases, the final results won't appear until after 6 months. The remaining fat cells will condense, reducing the fat layer. I am excited!

Getting Back in Shape With Halley Body Slimming Clinic

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Friday, 20 December 2019 09:16

Aging is real. I used to eat and not get fat but as I grow older, I realised that I can’t eat like before without gaining some weight.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review
 
The bulge over at the tummy area and the flanks, aka love handles, are growing. Although I am exercising regularly, the fats were still very stubborn. Hence, I have decided to pay Dr. Terence Tan from Halley Body Slimming Clinic (Halley Body) a visit. 

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

You might remember Dr. Terence Tan as the doctor from Halley Medical Aesthetics (Halley) who did my Ultherapy face tightening treatment for me last year. Halley Body is Dr. Terence Tan’s newest clinic that is dedicated to, as the name suggests, body treatments. While Halley focuses on medical aesthetic treatments for the face, Halley Body offers non-invasive weight management, fat reduction, body firming, and muscle toning treatments.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

During the consultation, with Dr. Terence Tan, I shared my concerns about my tummy and love handles with him and he recommended CoolSculpting to me since I was a suitable candidate. Dr. Terence Tan also went on to share what is CoolSculpting is. It is a non-invasive fat-reduction treatment that is approved by US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) to utilise cryolipolysis technology that targets only fat cells to contour the body by freezing away unwanted fat cells. The frozen and crystallised fat cells will be passed out of the body naturally after the treatment. Hence, the fat cells will be gone for good! The good thing about this treatment is that it involves no surgery and there is no downtime after treatment. Although the result is not immediate, many saw great results in after treatment.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

CoolSculpting can be used to target all the stubborn bulges which include our double-chin, upper-arm, love handles, abdomen, butt cheeks, inner thighs, and even bra-line areas. But do keep in mind that fat reduction does not equate to weight loss. While you might not spot a significant difference in your weight, you will feel that your clothes fit better and the bulges, smaller.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

 

Yes, I know. You must be wondering, what makes you a suitable candidate for CoolSculpting?

First and foremost, the doctor will take your body measurements and conduct a body analysis before the doctor recommends a treatment that is suitable for you. During the body analysis, Dr. Terence Tan shared that as long as a person has subcutaneous fat that is ‘pinchable' and 'grabbable', they are likely to be a good candidate for CoolScuplting.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

 

What to expect during the treatment?

Firstly, Dr. Terence Tan mapped out the specific areas to eliminate the fat cells. For my CoolSculpting treatment, he used the CoolAdvantage applicators to treat the stubborn fat on my abdomen and flanks. Compared to the legacy CoolSculpting applicators, the CoolAdvantage range of applicators reduces treatment time by nearly half. For instance, treatment time for the traditional CoolSculpting applicator takes 60 mins it is reduced to 35 mins with the CoolAdvantage applicator. The CoolAdvantage range of applicators also features an enhanced cup design for improved patient comfort as well as a larger cooling area to treat a bigger area at one time.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

A cooling gel pad was placed on the treatment area before the applicator was applied, and you can feel a mild suction and a cooling sensation at the treatment area. Depending on the area where the vacuum applicator is being positioned, you may feel intense cold initially, followed by a numbing sensation after about 10 minutes into the treatment.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

After the treatment, you may feel a tingling sensation as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. This massage is an important part of the treatment, as it helps to speed up the breakdown of the frozen fat cells. But all is well. Basically, the treatment is not uncomfortable, except during the beginning when there was some pulling and mild pinching from the suction of the applicator.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review


How long is the treatment?

To be honest, this depends on the individual again. My treatment time is 35 minutes per area. In my case, I had 12 sessions or applicators prescribed for my abdomen and flank, and the Halley Body team used 2 applicators at the same time, which reduced my treatment time by half. This DualSculpting method took 35 mins x 6, which meant that it took me about 5 hours to finish the whole course of treatment. Halley Body also offers also QuadSculpting, which is the use of four CoolSculpting machines in tandem to reduce treatment time by up to 85% with CoolAdvantage applicators. This is great for busy people who has lesser time on hand.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

 

What can you do during the treatment?

Basically, you can do anything as long as you don’t move a lot as you do not want the applicator to shift during the treatment. I would strongly advise you to download some dramas or movies to kill time or bring a book along to read. Of course, you can also listen to some music or just take a nap. Just do whatever that you feel is most comfortable for you with while you sit still.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

 

Side effects?

After the procedure, I had some redness as well as swelling around the treatment area with a slight tingling sensation and tenderness. After about a week, the swelling subsided but I still had some skin sensitivity and numbness. Even then, I could still go for a run 2 days after the treatment.

Halley Body Clinic CoolSculpting Review

 

When can you see results?

Depending on individuals, you can start to see changes about 3 weeks after the treatment but the most optimal results will come after 3 months. This is me 3 weeks later in Tioman for a dive trip. I do feel that my clothes fit better and my tummy bulge is smaller.

 

How much fat can you lose with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can eliminate up to 25% of the fat cells in the treated area each time. Our body is unable to produce any new fat cells after five years of age, and the fat cells that die after fat freezing will be gone forever. That is why CoolSculpting is used to remove unwanted fat that we cannot get rid of through spot toning exercises.

What I really like is the gradual fat loss process over a couple of weeks, which revealed a flatter tummy that exercise didn’t help me achieve.

How much does the CoolSculpting treatment cost?

The cost largely depends on the areas of concern as well as the number of applicators and sessions needed. I had 12 CoolAdvantage (35 min each) applicators so the cost for my treatment is $9,120 (no GST).

I am currently on my 4th week after the treatment and I really can’t wait to see the end result in another 2 months’ time.
