What types of body contouring and cellulite treatments does LS Aesthetic offer?At LS Aesthetic Clinic, we offer a number of non-invasive body contouring treatments that help in excess fat removal and cellulite reduction: Proshockice: Fat cells are known to be uniquely sensitive to extreme cold. Proshockice is a non-invasive device that makes use of this unique property to get rid of stubborn fat cells and cellulite, by using safe, patented technologies known as “ice-shock-lipolysis” and “acoustic shock therapy”. During this procedure, “ice-shock-lipolysis” freezes and crystallises fat cells, and the acoustic shock therapy shatters the crystallised fat cells, allowing for the expulsion of dead fat cells through the body’s natural metabolic processes. Radiofrequency Body Shaping Treatments: Radiofrequency treatments create heat to not only reduce fat, but also sculpt, tighten, and tone the skin. Such treatments use radio waves to also stimulate the growth of new collagen and encourage skin cell renewal. This, used in conjunction with moisturizing and collagen-building after-care creams, can result in softer and suppler skin, as well as smoother skin texture.
What are the benefits of body contouring?
- Removal of excess fat in a safe, effective manner
- Minimal downtime and side effects
- Pain-free procedures
- Smoother skin texture and growth of new collagen from radiofrequency treatments
What can I expect during the body contouring procedure?
All procedures are carried out according to prescribed protocols. The duration of treatment will depend on the size of the desired treatment area, and can vary from 20 – 60 minutes.
For Proshockice, a transducer with cooling plates is placed on the targeted area for a stipulated period of time to freeze and kill fat cells. The treatment is comfortable and often well-tolerated by patients, as the cooling effect on the skin induces numbness. Following that, a probe is applied with conductive gel to the treatment area to deliver acoustic sound energy that disperses the fat cells.
For Radiofrequency Body Shaping Treatments, a hand-held device is applied to the skin. As the device is guided over the treatment area, patients generally tend to experience a warm sensation.
Where does the fat go?
Body contouring treatments help in breaking down fat cells. The body then removes the destroyed fat cells as waste via its natural metabolic processes.
How long does it take till I can see results?
For Proshockice, some patients have reported seeing a reduction in centimetres in 1 session. Over the course of treatments, one can see further reductions in the desired treatment areas.
For Radiofrequency Body Shaping Treatments, the recommended treatment protocol is to have weekly sessions for at least 6 sessions. Results are generally apparent by the third session.
Is body contouring safe? Are there any side effects or downtime?
Yes, body contouring is a safe procedure. The treatments only affect fat cells, leaving surrounding skin tissues unharmed.
There is no downtime for the different types of body contouring treatments that LS Aesthetic Clinic provides. After undergoing radiofrequency, or Proshockice procedures, it is advisable to avoid sauna baths or high impact exercise for a week. Other than that, you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately. You might see redness in the treatment area after the procedure, but this should subside in a few hours.
How do I know which treatment is best for me?
Since this varies from patient to patient, Dr. Kok will access and advise patients on the number of treatments required to suit their needs. He will design a personalised body contouring regimen to best treat stubborn fat in your desired treatment area.
Am I a suitable candidate for body contouring?
Body contouring treatments are generally suitable for all patients. While body contouring is good for sculpting and toning the body, it is important to note that this does not guarantee weight loss, neither is it a substitute for a proper diet and exercise.
Patients with pacemakers or certain chronic diseases are not suitable for radiofrequency treatments.
