Hi All!! I’m back with some updates on the recent CoolSculpting treatment that I’ve gone through and I’m SO GLAD to have done those.
The fats and concerns on my thigh/bottoms have always been an issue- maybe I was born with fatter genes OR maybe I eat way too much for my body to digest! I always end up with fats sinking into my thigh and will grow abit chubbier after feasting for 2 weeks in a row. It’s really difficult to maintain my figure now that I’m a mother of 2 (And been through 2 births). My skin is just way looser compared to before.
Thank goodness I tried CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive and no downtime fat reduction treatment that works like wonder!
The treatment uses an applicator to freeze up your fats and destroy those unwanted fat cells. It actually removes 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area each time. And because our body is unable to produce any new fat cells after five years of age, the fat cells that die after fat freezing will be gone forever!!! This treatment is often used on spots or areas that exercising are unable to help tone. After the treatment, your body will dispose them out of the body naturally in about 3 months’ time.
The common areas that can be treated includes the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, back, banana rolls (below the butt cheeks), knees, and even the double chin and cheeks.
Dr Terence Tan of Halley Body Slimming Clinic prescribed a total of 10 CoolSculpting applicators to treat the stubborn fats in my inner thighs and banana rolls. 6 applicators (3 on each side) was applied to my inner thighs and 4 applicators (2 on each side) are applied to my banana rolls. (Banana rolls are the bulges of fats underneath your buttocks if you don’t already know).
Here are some of the BEFORE photos of me (Fat me).
The Pre and Post Treatment Process
Prior to the treatment, Dr Terence Tan used the CoolSculpting templates to mark out the areas of my concerns that require the fat freezing treatment.
This process will be customized and personalized for every individuals. For myself, as you can see, it is marked mostly in the inner thighs and the banana rolls underneath my buttocks.
Once we have marked out the areas, the therapist then helped to place gel pads onto the marked areas. These gel pads are really cold but they help to protect our skin during the treatment. As the name suggest, CoolSculpting can be very very cold!!
After which, the applicators are placed on the areas and Dr Tan would activate the machine (Set to a 35 minutes timer) to start freezing the fats. The fatty bulges got sucked up entirely into the applicator and the freezing then begin. To be honest, I was freezing the first 10minutes of it BUT it eventually began to feel numb and I feel more comfortable after. Kudos to the therapists at Halley Body Slimming Clinic cause they really took care of me! They brought blankets to make sure I’m kept warm and even brought me hot milo 🙂
After the timer is complete and the treatment cycle ends, the therapist would remove the applicator and massages to even out the frozen area (It’s uncomfortable cause it’s like a frozen block but the massage helped alot). This step helps to speed up the breakdown of the crystallized dead fat cells so it can be passed out by the body naturally.
Can I just say the result is AMAZING, I also kept my diet to the minimum for 1-2 weeks and exercise rather regularly.
Here’s the BEFORE and AFTER photo of CoolSculpting- 3 months after the actual treatment:
You can see very obvious gaps in my front and inner thigh! I’m standing in the exact width from the first photo taken and it’s a lot of difference!! Also, the cellulite near the banana rolls under my buttocks is obviously lesser and has a smoother and uplifted effect.
With the right treatment plan from an experienced doctor, you will be able to see the changes that you want.
Lastly, the treatment price varies because everyone has different needs and might need different amount of applicators. My treatment totals up to $6,300 (Price includes GST).
