I am conscious about my weight and body fat distribution  - Is there a safe way for me to lose weight?

Yes, there is.

Attempting to lose weight can be a tricky and painstaking process. Not only does it require adhering to a strict diet, the consequent effect it has on our daily lives can be a major deterrent for many of us to stay on course. Some may feel tired, lethargy and even difficulty concentrating at work, causing them to relapse and give up on their diet regime. 

Fortunately, with the advancement of technology and medication, there exists different medications that can help us with weight reduction, and at the same time comes with minimal side effects. These medication help increase satiety, reduce hunger, and speed up body metabolism, effectively triggering weight loss. It is approved by authorities such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means that they are both safe and effective. 

Although I am losing weight, there are certain fat areas of my body with stubborn fat that just won't go away. Is there a way to remove them? 

Yes, there is. 

There are multiple machines that are currently available in the market for this purpose. You may have heard of the term 'fat freezing' (cryolipolysis), or 'fat burning' machines- each with their own pros and cons. 

Exilis Ultra 360

Exilis Ultra 360 is a non-invasive machine that uses monopolar radiofrequency waves emitted from a probe to induce heat in the deep tissues below the skin.

Effectively, this causes two main outcomes:- 

1) Fat reduction below the skin 







2) Collegen production + remodelling, leading to reduced wrinkles and tighter skin








EMsculpt is another non-invasive machine for fat burning, or mainly for muscle toning purposes. 

EMsculpt involves placing an applicator at the desired region of muscle, which uses Electromagnetic waves to stimulate muscle contraction at the region, simulating exercise. Such waves can stimulate up to 20,000 contractions within 30minutes, and in a way, is effective and efficient exercise. The applicator can be placed at the abdominal muscles, thighs, gluteal (buttocks), or even bicep muscles. 

Each sessions can go up to 30 minutes, and the encouraged frequency is up to once or twice in a week.


Certain studies have already confirmed the effects of EMsculpt, which is able to give a 16% increase in muscle mass, and 19% reduction in subcutaneous fat. 


What about smaller fat pockets? Is there an option for injectables to be used at specific fat pockets?  

For certain regions, such as below the chin, or certain fat pockets at the abdomen, 'mesolipolysis' is a process of injecting lipolytics (substances that breakdown fat) at the desired region. 

The common lipolytic ingredients are such as Phosphatidylcholine and Deoxycholic Acid. Such chemicals are harmless in small amounts, with the most common immediate side effect post procedure such as minor bruising, swelling and soreness over injection area. 

Results are typically more evident after 1 to 3 weeks post injection, however, we recommend typically at least 2 to 4 sessions to observe results. 

Weight loss is much harder and complicated than you think. 

On the other hand, a sudden excessive gain in weight could even be due to certain metabolic diseases, such as hypothyroidism, or even hypogonadism (Low testosterone). For some patients, an initial health screening might even be indicated. The treatment might be more than mere machines and dietary solutions.
