1. Why does it take so long to lose weight?
Ever heard of the saying “a moment on the lips, forever on the hips”? This may be a line taken from a popular sitcom, but it sure holds considerable truth. It is easy to munch on food without much thought about how they might impact our bodies.
While having the occasional cookie will not hurt, there are many other foods that can expand your waistline over time, unbeknownst to you. From bubble tea and sweetened coffee to seemingly healthy foods like cereal and avocados, you might not always be aware of how many calories these foods are adding to your daily diet. If you do not work hard enough to burn off those calories, your body will store any excess energy from these foods as fat. The gradual accumulation of excess calories will hence contribute to weight gain over a period of time. Fat can settle as a flabby mass underneath your skin, as well as surround your internal organs.
As aforementioned, there are definitely other factors that can inhibit your slimming potential. Some of these factors might be difficult to manage. These include your stress levels, sleeping habits, and age. On the other hand, there are factors that might be beyond your control, such as allergies, genetics, and hormones. Considering that becoming heavier can be so easily triggered by a bunch of different factors and everyday habits, you can see why it is not that easy to shed pounds.
2. Can you recommend the fastest way to lose weight without surgery?
As much as you might want an instant shortcut to getting your dream bod, we can tell you that it is nearly impossible to cut down on a ton of fats overnight. With that said, there are certainly other means without having to rely on surgery, fad diets, and exercise. Our revolutionary fat freezing method is completely non-invasive and does not require you to go under anaesthesia. The process uses a unique form of controlled cooling technology to crystallise, shrink, and eradicate your stubborn fat cells.
As there are no surgical procedures involved, you will not have to worry about complications and side effects such as infections, bleeding, or scarring. It is a safe, highly effective, and long-lasting method of minimising the appearance of unsightly fatty bulges and pouches around your body. One of the best parts? Absolutely no downtime, which means that you do not have to take days off your schedule just to recuperate at home post-treatment.
3. What can I expect when undergoing the treatment to lose weight?
Before undergoing any procedures at Geo Aesthetics, you will first meet with our qualified therapists for a thorough discussion about your medical history, as well as the process and expected results. As for the procedure, your skin will be protected with a gel pad or sheet before the suction applicator is applied to your intended targeted areas.
Upon beginning the procedure, a suction paddle will be applied to your fatty areas, and you will start to feel a “vacuum” or pulling effect on your skin. Initially, you may feel considerable coldness on your skin, but this sensation will subside after 10 minutes as the skin becomes numb. You can then relax throughout the remainder of your session.
4. How soon can I begin to see results?
While results may vary with each individual, most clients will be able to observe slight improvements within a few weeks following their procedure. It can sometimes take several sessions to achieve your desired appearance. With that said, you can rest assured that following each session, you will continue to notice more significant improvements, such as a trimmer waistline or less bulging in your fatty areas. You can expect a fat reduction of up to 25 percent in your targeted areas.
5. Can the results last long?
Yes, the results are indeed long-lasting. Your body will continue to naturally metabolise and discard the damaged fat cells through your lymphatic system for up to six months post-treatment. This means that you can continue to see more visible improvements throughout a period of time. Once these fat cells have been banished, they will be permanently gone.
Ideally, you should also aim to maintain a stable weight throughout the course so that you can observe the most optimum results. Many clients find that, by the end of their entire sessions, they tend to have better proportions and can fit well into clothing of smaller sizes.
