1. EMS, HIFEM For Body Sculpting:

There are many different types of EMS devices in the market, each with its own unique set of features. Some of the most popular EMS devices include the EmSculpt, EmShape, and Tesla Former. These devices all use different types of electrical stimulation to help tone and sculpt the body.

Since we do 300 EMS treatments a month for our clients, it's something we know very well. If your main goal is losing weight or weight management, this is probably not for you. If you're looking for muscle toning or fat burning in targeted problem areas, then this is for you.

We see the best effect for our clients that are at a maximum of 3-5kg above their ideal weight. If you wanted to have your butt lifted and firmer, your arms/thighs firmer, or reveal some ab lines under your tummy, this works really well.

However, if you are at the stage of your weight loss journey where you have over 5kg to lose, we'll recommend you other treatments later. So here are the top 3 most popular versions of the EMS machines.

EmSculpt (Per session: $300-700):

EmSculpt is FDA-approved and the "cream of the crop" or "branded" when it comes to EMS and HIFEM treatments. Many medical slimming centres carry this brand and it's one of the non-invasive methods that doctors use. This also tends to be the most expensive.

EmShape (Per session: $150-400):

EmShape is the Korean version of the EMS machine and is possibly best seen as an alternative to EmSculpt. Since the machine is less than half the price of EmSculpt, service providers like us usually provide the treatments cheaper as well. If price is within your consideration, EmShape produces equally good results as the EmSculpt.

Without going into the details of how the body shaping technologies designed are, many things are similar between the machines including the user interface.

Tesla Former (Per session: $250-500):

The Tesla Former is another popular variant of the EMS machines and is priced in between EmShape and EmSculpt. Being similar to the other two variants (also claiming between 20000 to 50000 muscle contractions in 30min), Tesla Former can help you achieve a greater tone in your body.

2. Fat-Freezing / Cryolipolysis

Fat-freezing (scientifically known as Cryolipolysis), is a popular treatment that uses cold temperatures of -5°C to destroy fat cells. This treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime, making it a popular choice for those looking to slim down. The results of cryolipolysis are typically seen within a few weeks of treatment.

Since we do over 250 fat-freeze treatments every month, we've seen a lot of clients achieve a slimmer tummy, smaller thighs and a reduction in water retention in stubborn areas.

Note that even though other places claim it's not pain, we've found that many of our clients consider this at least slightly painful.

Also, despite what other people might tell you when they overpromise, this is not a magic bullet. It's an effective slimming treatment best combined with exercise, diet, and other weight loss treatments if you want to lose weight fast.

We'd rather you know the facts and that the fat freeze treatments are one piece of the body slimming puzzle that will help you with your weight loss goals, without extreme diets.

CoolSculpting (Per session: $300-1000):

CoolSculpting is the leading brand of cryolipolysis treatments and is FDA-cleared, safe, and effective. It can be used on multiple areas of the body, with many machines using up to 4 applicators at once. Being the top-tier brand for fat-freezing and heavily endorsed by celebrities such as Jeanette Aw, they're also the highest priced.

Clatuu Alpha (Per session: $250-600):

The Clatuu Alpha is another popular brand of fat-freezing. It uses similar technology as CoolSculpting, but generally has a 360° applicator that can target fat cells from all angles. This is especially useful for targeting hard-to-reach areas like the back and flanks.

CoolTech ($200-$800):

CoolTech, again, is a popular brand of fat-freezing. The CoolTech technology also works by the process of cryolipolysis and is most suitable as part of an overall weight loss program.

Fat-Freezing / Fat-Freezing 360 (Per session: $150-$800)

Last but not least, Fat-Freezing is the unbranded version of the machines. The technology is the same and if you're not concerned about the brand and only the price-to-efficacy ratio, you can consider this as the best option.

In a short period of 30-90 days, we've seen clients achieve a tummy size reduction of up to 35%.

In summary, Fat Freeze is best for people with the body type that has around 5-15kg of weight to lose and fits well as part of an overall weight management plan.

If you want to lose weight fast, you will still need to combine it with a stable diet and exercise plan.

3. RF / Radio-frequency for slimming

RF electric wave is used to generate heat deeper in the skin and ensure comfort. It transforms RF electric wave into a heat exchanger that warms collagen tissue in the dermis layer. When deep collagen tissue is heated to 45°C-60°C, it will naturally stimulate and create new collagen to replace the lost collagen protein, tightening the skin and removing wrinkles. This non-invasive, treatment is popular with people that want fat reduction, reduced cellulite, and tighter skin.

Many slimming centres provide this to help with skin tightening and cellulite reduction after losing weight. After all, your dream body is not just about losing weight, the skin appearance also matters especially if you lose weight fast.

4. Slimming Massage

The friction produced by a slimming massage warms the skin, which encourages microcirculation and fat breakdown. Body slimming massages stimulate connective tissues, promoting lymphatic drainage in our gastrointestinal tract, which absorbs and transports fats from the intestine to the liver.

A slimming massage targets problem areas in the body, such as the tummy, thigh, arms, and calf, to deliver localized fat reduction. It aids in the improvement of lymphatic drainage and the toning of different parts of our body.

These massages can help to stimulate the metabolism rate and works well as part of a weight loss program for body slimming.

Meridian Massage

In traditional medicine, meridians (also known as acupressure vessels) are bodily energy qi channels that transport and recharge the body's energy fields. Meridians are like rivers in that they transport energy qi, just as a river transports water through a set route to numerous destinations. These meridian pathways distribute electricity, and nutrients throughout our body.

Meridian massage is a type of acupressure that uses various approaches to stimulate specific acupressure points in the body. It aids in the removal of blockages and the equilibrium of qi, blood, Yin, and Yang in our bodies. When used as a TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine) weight-loss treatment, it focuses on acupressure points that affect the weight of an individual.

Gua Sha Slimming

The process of applying Gua Sha is called Gua Sha therapy (GT). A Gua Sha tool is used to scrape a person's body, which is thought to stimulate particular energy lines. The Gua Sha slimming technique, like meridian massage, works by stimulating specific parts of the body that influence organ health.

Gua Sha slimming improves digestive health and corrects internal organ function. It also aids in the removal of pollutants from our bodies by promoting healing, lymphatic drainage, and blood circulation.

5. Liposuction

When you think of slimming treatments, liposuction might come to mind.

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to remove stubborn fats from the body. The surgery is performed by making a small incision in the skin and using a suction device to remove the fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss method, but it can help improve the contours of the body. The surgery is typically performed on the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms.

Liposuction is generally a safe surgery, but there are some risks associated with it. These risks include infection, bleeding, and bruising. The surgeon will usually give you a list of things to do after the surgery to help reduce the risk of these complications

Advantages of Liposuction

  • Slim down quickly and safely
  • Look better in a bathing suit
  • Done by a trained surgeon

Disadvantages of Liposuction

  • The surgery is expensive
  • The surgery is invasive
  • There is a risk of infection, bleeding and bruising.
