1. Why am I having difficulty in weight loss?
Slimming down is no easy feat and the process may be made much harder with a range of variables coming into play. Firstly, age can prevent you from achieving that efficiently, seeing that your metabolic rate will naturally slow down as you grow older.
Secondly, lack of quality sleep can derail your goals pretty easily. When you are sleep-deprived, your body tends to produce more of the appetite-inducing hormone called ghrelin. This simply means that the less you sleep, the more likely you are to get hit by hunger pangs or the ‘munchies’, especially in the late afternoon.
Similarly, when you are experiencing significant stress, your body will generate an insulin-spiking hormone called cortisol. As a result, your blood sugar levels will take a sharp dip, causing you to have sugar cravings (and then reach for snacks, if you are not careful). Your sleeping habits and stress levels can indeed cause you to eat more than you usually might.
Lastly, your genetics can also play a part too. Despite diet and exercise, some people will have a lower ability than others. This is why you might have some friends who are able to enjoy hearty meals without putting on pounds.
2. Why should I consider weight loss?
You might find that even with diet and exercise, it can still be difficult to get rid of certain bulges or pouches of fat around your body. Some people resort to taking supplements or detox teas, which have absolutely no guarantee in helping you to lose excess fat. These products can also have side effects, such as heart palpitations and dehydration. For people with plenty of money to spare, they might even undergo surgical procedures, such as liposuction, to remove unwanted fat. When it comes to nip and tuck procedures, there are many potential risks and side effects involved, such as anaesthesia complications, bleeding, scarring, infections, and blood clotting.
Fortunately, there are safer and more effective ways to reduce unwanted fat from your body. Our revolutionary method does not require any surgical incisions, anaesthesia, supplements, or downtime. We use non-invasive energy to target stubborn fat cells reduce them through controlled cooling. You will not have to worry about nasty side effects or scary risks with our non-invasive and non-surgical process.
3. What can I expect when undergoing weight loss?
Before embarking on any procedures at Geo Aesthetics, you will first have a discussion with our qualified therapists about your medical history, as well as the procedure and expected outcome. Before the procedure starts, your intended treated areas will be covered with a gel pad to minimise the impact of intensely cold temperatures on your skin.
During the session, a suction-like applicator will come into contact with the bulges or pockets of fat to be treated. You can expect to feel some cold and pulling from the vacuum applicator. After several minutes, this sensation will subside as your skin will start to become numb. You can then relax and entertain yourself with a book or magazine for the remainder of the session. You can rest assured that this method will not cause any pain or hurt your skin tissues.
4. How soon can I begin to see results?
Generally, you can begin to notice improvements in as early as three weeks following the procedure. The good thing about this is that your body will continually clear out the targeted fats. This means that you will get to observe further improvements to your treated areas. Most of our clients will require several sessions, which can be spread out over a few months, to achieve their desired figure. You are advised to maintain a stable weight throughout the course of your sessions in order to reap optimal results.
5. Will the results last long?
Yes, they will. At least 20 percent of the fat cells in your targeted areas will will be flushed out. You are advised to stay hydrated following your sessions to aid your body’s lymphatic system in flushing out the targeted fat cells.
