No diet. No exercise. Yet, remarkably I lost my love handles!
I hated my belly fats and hips ever since I started food blogging, because I tend to eat more calories than what my body needs with reckless abandon.
As an avid foodie, there wasn’t enough time for me to exercise as I normally spend more time discovering new eats and places. I know I’m lying when I said I had no time to exercise – I can just recalibrate my activities or find something that fits into my lifestyle. I did none of it, but thankfully I found a shortcut.
Recently, I was introduced to Shou Slimming Centre which helped to tackle not just my body fats area, but also my weight concern. According to my weight 73.8kg, I’m considered overweight in relation to my height.
Worried that I might face increased health risks and lose motivation in my body, I took the advice from Shou Slimming Centre and went on a quest to make realistic changes.
Here’s some light on the aesthetic benefits, procedure details and pictures of different treatments available at Shou Slimming Centre.
Science has come a long way and new technology is making it easier than ever to lose body fat.
TYPE OF TREATMENT – FAT FREEZE
About the treatment: Fat Freeze is a breakthrough, non-invasive way to gently and effectively reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. There are no needles, incisions, anaesthesia and recovery time.
Treatment targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion in which exercise and diet cannot achieve as quickly or as effectively. It is ideal for individuals with small pockets of fat, which are diet and exercise resistant.
TYPE OF TREATMENT – VELASHAPE
About the treatment: The first and only FDA cleared device that safely and effectively contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas such as thigh, buttocks, love handles and abdomen in a few treatments. VelaShapeTM features the revolutionary elōsTM combination of Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage that is specially designed to reshape body contours and improve skin texture with no downtime.
A gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite and circumferential reduction with noticeable reshaping of treated area can be observed throughout the treatment regime. Treatment enables you to comfortably and safely achieve a toned, contoured and well-shaped body, making you look and feel more youthful.
TYPE OF TREATMENT – NANO
About the treatment: Nano Shape uses EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) technology which is proven to stimulate muscles in your body which is the equivalent of a massive gym workout. It has the ability to strengthen muscles, reduce weight, minimize body fat and improve blood circulation.
During treatment, electrical current is emitted through rubber contact pads that are positioned over targeted areas where the muscles tighten when they become aroused by electrical energy. Stimulation is not constant but turns on and off to imitate traditional exercise – prompts the muscle to passively exercise. Repeated electrical stimulation stimulates the body’s natural fat burning and toning process to give you a toned and firm body. Specific areas of the body can be targeted.
TYPE OF TREAMTMENT – BIO-SLIM WRAP
About the treatment: Bio-slim Wrap is a painless and non-invasive way to burn fat, reduce inches and reduce appearance of cellulite. Bio-slim Wrap focuses on three main components – collagen, fat and circulation to improve the appearance of cellulite.
Treatment uses a combination of natural active ingredients, which includes a number of plant extracts, caffeine, essential oils and algae extract, and thermo agents that work to achieve results. These products work to produce heat that can break down fats and smooth the skin. They encourage better circulation, and can reduce inflammation in treatment areas. Caffeine improves metabolism and blood flow in the treatment area while the thermal action of the products allow deeper penetration of tissues, improves lymphatic drainage, and also improves blood circulation.
This results in a reduction in circumference as well as cellulite. Essential oils used, enter the blood stream when absorbed through skin pores and can be effective in reducing toxins. Treatment offers benefits beyond treating cellulite and fat deposits. Improvement in varicose veins or stretch marks and skin tightening. An average loss of 1- 4 cm* around waist and thighs can be achieved from the first treatment. Results are instant and long lasting.
TYPE OF TREATMENT – CRYOLIPOLYSIS
About the treatment: Fat Freeze adopts advanced cooling technology, Cryolipolysis, which can noticeably eliminate fat without surgery. It selectively target fat bulges and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process that does not harm the surrounding tissues. When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling, they will be ‘frozen’.
These ‘frozen’ fat cells will be degenerated and eventually undergone apoptosis – a process where the fat cells no longer function and are replaced by strands of collagen fibres instead. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes.
Treatment trigger a process of natural removal that gradually reduces the thickness of fat layer. There is little or no downtime – individuals can resume normal activities on the same day as the procedure, making it a good choice for those seeking a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. You can feel immediate sense of lightness, getting rid about 20-30% fats after just one session.
THE EFFECTS AND RESULTS
My fat loss journey with Shou Slimming was a combination of multiple therapies over a period of 100 days (3-months) – the most effective fat-eliminating treatment process called Cryolipolysis + Fat Freeze is a non-invasive liposuction alternative, which involves killing of fat cells through the freezing technology.
The procedure didn’t involve any knives or needles and there was no downtime – although I experienced some numbness and aching after the procedure, there was no risk during the treatment.
Each session take about 60 mins and fat reduction of 20% to 25% was likely. I noticed improvements about three weeks after the treatment and the most dramatic change was observed after three months (see below photo results).
Note: To ensure optimal results, I have cut down the calories of rice and sugar, so that I don’t lose the benefits achieved from the procedure.
PRIOR TO THE TREATMENT – DATE: 09 MARCH 2017
Weight: 73.8kg / BMI: 26.1 / Fat %: 21.4
2.5 MONTHS INTO THE TREATMENT – DATE: 24 MAY 2017
Weight: 70.0kg / BMI: 24.8 / Fat %: 21.3
POST TREATMENT – DATE: 5 JUNE 2017
Weight: 68.8kg / BMI: 24.4 / Fat %: 19.0
The cost of the slimming procedure doesn’t comes cheap.
Sessions will cost an average of S$250 to S$1,000 depending on the type of treatments. But if you add up the money spent on gym memberships and personal trainers, diet meals and supplements, including shopping spent on new clothes over the years, it seems reasonable to those who wants to shed inches without exercising at all.
If you looking for a non-surgical way to get in shape effortlessly, I’m confident that Shou Slimming can help you achieve the best results!
