A long period of neglecting my fitness and diet left me with a visibly bloated abdomen with stubborn belly flab I struggled to get rid of.
Liposuction has always been an idea I toyed with, but going under the knife seemed extreme. EstheClinic’s LipoSculpt treatment is a recommended alternative.
Described as painless and most importantly, non-invasive, it works to target large areas of the body, such as the waistline, arms and thighs, with zero downtime. Low-level laser-based light, between 635nm and 660nm in wavelength, pierces through skin layers and targets fat cells. Their contents – made up of fatty acids and triglycerides, a type of fat your body converts from calories that don’t burn – are released. They drain into the lymphatic system and get metabolised or eliminated from the body. Through this process, fat cells in the treated area are shrunk, reducing the inches.
As someone who has never done body treatments, I was nervous from the get-go but was repeatedly reassured that the procedure would not hurt me. My abdomen was comfortably bound with four electric plates. These gradually began to warm on my skin, but the mild heat was so relaxing, it helped me drift o to sleep. After 30 minutes, the session concluded with the therapist massaging a firming lotion.
Different people experience different effects with LipoSculpt, including initial digestive issues. After my first session, my stomach simply gurgled more than usual. In fact, I had only experienced five of the 10 recommended sessions, all of which were done in a span of two weeks.
Although I didn’t measure my waistline, what stood out to me was I experienced less bloating. I made no changes to my diet, but could see that my tummy was slightly trimmer. Before-and-after pictures also bore testament to this. Months later, the results have not lasted but I am confident that with proper diet and exercise, this treatment would yield excellent results.
