Even people who have a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) and are not overweight can complain of unsightly bulges that no matter how much exercise and dieting they do, they can’t seem to get rid of.
Liposonix and Coolsculpting by Zeltiq are 2 non-invasive procedures that help in localised fat reduction. Usually, 20-30% of fats in a particular area can be removed after one session. Results are seen in 6-8 weeks after treatment.
Interesting facts on fat cells: Usually we have a fixed number of fat cells by the age of puberty. How we appear fatter is when each fat cell swells up to many times its size from the accumulation of fatty deposits. It is NOT an increase in the actual number of fat cells.
The above treatments work by destroying a population of fat cells each time it is administered.

Build muscles and burn fat with EmSculpt®
Current non-invasive body shaping treatments in the local market mainly address fat and skin. But what happens when one has less than an inch of pinchable fat, or want to improve the tone and shape of one’s stomach or buttock? EmSculpting® is an FDA-Approved treatment shown to build muscle and burn fat without one having to break a sweat.
Typically, one-third of one’s body is covered in muscles. This treatment uses electromagnetic waves to stimulate the underlying muscle. The contractions are “supramaximal” and during a 30-minute session, the abs/buttocks contract equivalent to a workout of 20,000 crunches/squats.
All in One Fat Reduction + Muscle BuildingThe newly launched EMSculpt NEO is an FDA-approved body contouring machine to combine both fat reduction and muscle toning into one single non-invasive treatment. The applicators simultaneously emit HIFEM waves and RF energy for improved results in a shorter period. Similar to its predecessor, the destroyed fat cells are naturally disposed of through the body.
High Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic (HIFEM) Waves
- Induce supramaximal contractions, which cannot be done through voluntary exercise
- One session is equivalent to approximately 20,000 crunches or squats
Radio-Frequency (RF) Fat Reduction Permanently reduce fat cells through controlled heatingNot only does the EMSculpt NEO help with body contouring, it also improves Diastasis Recti, a condition whereby abdominal muscles on either side of the belly button are separated, causing a tummy pooch. It is commonly seen in women above 35, post-pregnancy or in men with abdominal obesity. Individuals with Diastasis Recti may experience symptoms such as lower back pain, poor posture or even hernia. With regular EMSculpt NEO sessions, individuals can expect to see an improvement as the core muscles gradually regain strength. Consult our doctors to see if EMSculpt NEO or any of our other body contouring treatments can help For further enquires or appointments, contact our clinic at 6735 8833.
Got a big belly?A big belly is not only unsightly, but it also rings alarm bells of an unhealthy lifestyle with a high risk of health hazards. This can give way to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and cancer, and can increase the rate of infertility. ReduStim is an obesity treatment that combines low-frequency magnetic fields and controlled micro-pressure to reduce abdominal fat and trim the waistline. During the treatment, one will put on a special suit connected to a device to emit electromagnetic energy to target both subcutaneous (what you can pinch) and visceral (deep abdominal) fat.
When abdominal fat should be a cause for concern.Anyone who is carrying excess fat around the stomach and midriff area should be concerned for their health. Subcutaneous fat sits under the skin and is usually visible. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, and sometimes genetics, can contribute to the build-up of subcutaneous fat. On the other hand, visceral fat refers to deeply situated abdominal fat that surrounds one’s vital organs. Some levels of visceral fat are normal but too much can result in health problems such as insulin resistance (diabetes), inflammation, and heart disease. One is considered to have abdominal obesity if one’s waist circumference is higher than 88cm for women and 102cm for men.
How does ReduStim works?ReduStim takes the form of a device linked to a bodysuit that covers the body, from the feet up to the abdomen. The suit contains six inductors that transfer magnetic energy to the specific target areas (calves, outer thighs, knee and abdomen). During the 30-minute session, two actions take place simultaneously:
- Main action- The emission of a biomagnetic field stimulates the release of abdominal (visceral) fat.
- Secondary action- An upward pressure is exerted to stimulate the body’s biological lipolysis mechanism. This facilitates body drain and the elimination of toxins.
Who should consider ReduStim?
- Overweight or obese patients.
- Patients suffering from health problems such as infertility, obesity, and diabetes due to the high percentage of visceral fat.
- Patients dissatisfied with post-natal obesity.
Recommended treatment programOverweight people: A total of 12 30-minute sessions with 2-3 sessions done per week. Obese people: A total of 12 45-minute sessions with 2-3 sessions done per week. Along with a session of ReduStim, physical activity is recommended as this allows for the direct trigger of the contraction of most skeletal muscles, hence accentuating fat lipolysis in the body.
Will the fat return?With proper dietary management and a ReduStim maintenance session once a month (optional), you can keep your fat percentage under control. A healthy meal plan consisting of food that helps to increase your metabolism and moderate exercise should also be put into action.
What are the contradictions?We do not recommend ReduStim for these patients:
- Pregnant women
- Patients suffering from skin injuries or skin conditions
- Pacemaker carriers
- Deep venous thrombosis (DVT)
- Infections (erysipelas, lymphangitis)
- Arteriopathy (disease of the artery)
- Untreated heart problems
- Clotting disorders
