[Sponsored] Fat Freeze Treatment by Sure Solution Singapore

After slimming down from 80kg to 62 kg last year. I become very flabby. Due to my previous job , I put on almost 8kg due to supper and stress. Thanks to Sure Solution Singapore who offers me a 2 months slimming treatment.

Here are some of my problematic area …

Untitled-2

I really hate my big and flabby arms which had deprive me from wearing sleeveless dress and top. I had always been on the bigger and heavier side since young, therefore my fashion choice were way limited. I had tried different ways to tone them up , however it does not seems to make a different. It had been always a big problem to me.

My tummy is getting bigger from all the supper.

I had a pair of very thick legs since young which I hate too. My family use to call be ” Elephant Leg” which to me is a real insult. However I had to admit it as I have very huge thighs and big calves. Even though it had become smaller, it is still not my desire. I really envy those girls who have very slim and long pair of legs.

Lets now talk about the treatment..

I was sponsored on 4 different treatments by Sure Solution Singapore. I had tried CoolSculpting Fat Freeze for my first 2 sessions. Due to time constraits as I had to rush for some other appointments after my treatment. I only did the treatment for my tummy and my thighs.

Here some background on CoolSculpting Fat Freeze before I talked about the sessions.

 CoolSculpting Fat Freeze targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.

The treatment uses laser, sonic waves and even surgery to remove fat can actually destroy other tissue in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal.  CoolSculpting Fat Freeze doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. This procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells remain, well, healthy. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body

Here a video I found online which explain more on the whole CoolSculpting process. It is almost similar to what I experience in Sure Solution.

Here my experience at Sure Solution.

Under Sure Solution Singapore, there are two outlets. I am schedule to have my treatment at Orchard Hotel Shopping Arcade.

Preparing for my Treatment

After changing into the robe, the beautician-in-charge took my weight and the measurement of  my arms , tummy and thighs. I was also told that my body is loop-sided as I have more fats on my right side of the body. I had never notice about that , it really good that she had pointed it out for me.

For the first Session, I had CoolSculpting Fat Freeze on my tummy.

The whole session was painless. All it feels is a great suction power sucking the fat as while as the cold numbing feeling.

After the CoolSculpting Fat Freeze Treatment, the beautician uses a machine which uses electronic wave to burn the fats.

For the Second Session, I also did CoolSculpting Fat Freeze but this time is on my thighs.

Please note that, it is normal when you have slight bruises after the treatment. It is similar to TCM ” bai guan”

I am now looking forward to my third treatment with Sure Solution .

Stay tunes on my blog as I will be sharing on my experience and my whole process of the slimming treatment.

Marie France : Please let me be slimmer and slimmer~❤

Slimming is never ending process and wants for every girl and woman. Everyone hopes and crave to achieve the perfect body shape and be skinny. So am i ?



I used be weight 82kg almost 2 years ago. I took a lot of courage to take the first step to start my dieting and exercising. Thanks to my boyfriend support, I managed to slim down to 62kg within a period of 1.5 months. Even though, I managed to slim down 20kg, my body become flabby especially my arms and legs. I really hope to achieve the perfect firm body with the nice contour line.
Thanks to OMY and Marie France for giving me the chance to try out their slimming session. Here my experience on “Intelect Spot Shaping (ISS) “and “Contour Sculpt Body System”.

Before I started my session. The beauty consultant took my weight and my fat percentage in my body. The nutritionist was very friendly and had gave me some healthy advise for me to maintain my weight and even to slim down more.

Since my arms were all flabby. I decided to target on my flabby arms, hoping that Marine France will help me to firm it up. The Intelect Spot Shaping(ISS) will help me to firm up. The beauty consultant applied their special slimming firming gel on my arms. After that, they used a ultra sound machine to massage the gel into my arms. You can feel that the gel is absorbing into the body. After the 20mins of the ultra sound treatment, the beauty consultant helped me to massage arms to help the gel to absorb faster as while as to firm up the flabby arms. Finally the last steps, is to wrap my arms with their special clothes to firm up. I really enjoyed the whole session.

 

As for the Contour Sculpt Body System, the consulted help me to do their exclusive slimming wrap to slim down my tights.

Here are some of their promotion.

Overall, I love the whole session. I strongly recommend Marie France Bodyline if you are thinking of going to a slimming center. Their staff dont hard-sell and they were friendly and nice. Rest assure that they will provide you with their professional knowledge on slimming.
