Don’t we love to have that ageless body where no matter what we do or eat, our body will not store those nasty fats? Just last weekend, I have joined Mediviron UOA Aesthetics Clinic on their Ageless Body event. It was open to public and I have also shared with everyone about it in my Facebook. Please do follow me in my Facebook for tons more beauty and events update!
Dr Lashela, who has more than 7 years of experience in medicine practice and has great experience in aesthetics medicine as well as treating dermatological diseases. In Ageless Body, we were introduced to a machine that helps to reduce stubborn fat on targeted areas with less fuss.
The machine that Dr Lashela speak of is Cool Sculpting, a non-invasive fat busting treatment and results can be seen as early as 3 weeks of 20 – 25% fat reduction. No anaesthesia or incisions used, no downtime and great alternative for liposuction. Using Crylipolysis, which is a cooling technology to eliminate fat without damaging other parts of the body internally.
Cool Sculpting can be used on areas such as flanks, stomach, upper back, lower back and inner thighs, these are the problematic areas where stubborn fat stays. Suitable candidates for such treatment will be those who has stubborn fat, wants to achieve well-toned body and to lose love handles, flabby tummy, wobbly thighs and arms. If you are the one with high muscle mass, you’re not suitable for this.
Here is how the applicator looks and this machine is developed by Harvard University scientist, Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD. This technology was born after the observation of some children who gets their dimples from eating popsicles and this is licensed by Massachuettes General Hospital, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
We were also brought to tour around the clinic for their different aesthetics treatment rooms and this will be the room for doing Cool Sculpting treatment.
Dr Lashela performed a 10-minute demonstration to share with us how it looks to undergo this treatment.
- Use the Cool Sculpting template to mark on the areas at the peak of the bulges.
- Apply gel pad over the marked area and this is to protect the skin as well as to retain moisture.
- Covering lining for the applicator.
- With one hand supporting the arm and another hand holds the applicator. Place the applicator to the treatment area, leave on for an hour for each targeted area. Patients will be supported comfortably with pillows and towels.
- Once it’s timed, remove the applicator and massage the treatment area for 2 mins. Clean and pat dry.
What happened while having the Cool Sculpting applicator on is, it uses a controlled cooling to crystallize fat cells on the area, fat cells will gradually die then will be eliminated through your lymphatic system.
Patients will usually feel numb, deep pulling/pinching/stinging during the treatment. After the treatment, there will be some redness and mild swelling. Since the treatment need an hour of each area, patients can always listen to music, watch movies, read, work on laptops or even sleep.
Mediviron UOA couldn’t leave us with empty hand at the end of the session and each of us get a variety of prizes from voucher, skin cares and more! We are also allowed to do skin analysis and BMI test after the session.
This was my skin analysis result using Visia Complexion Analysis which surprised me because my skin condition hasn’t been in positive for most of my skin analysis and this has brighten up my day. The percentage showing is what I have and I will need to improve the missing percentage. What I have to improve the most from the missing percentage is spots (31%), texture (25%) and wrinkles (22%). It seems that I have protected my skin very well on UV spots as what I have is 99%, thank you to my daily SPF50 sun block!
For my BMI test, I’m healthy and the numbers are showing well although the overall results states that I’m underweight.
- Weight: 48.8kg
- Height: 165cm
- Overall fat: 23.3%
- Metabolic Age: 19 years old
- BMI: 17.9
- Calories Intake per day: 1124 kcal
- Viceral Fat: 1
Through Ageless Body, I learned another new machine that helps to bust fat effortlessly and I really enjoy finding out more about how it works as well as the technology behind it. It was a great session!
