Freeze the fat
Mirage Aesthetics - fat freezing treatment
With two convenient locations in the west and in Orchard, mums can steal an hour out of their busy schedules to treat themselves to the fat freezing treatment at Mirage Aesthetics. Lie down and drift off to sleep as the target area receives controlled cooling. This will aid fat cells in breaking down, without affecting the skin and the surrounding tissue.
After the cold temperatures reduce fat cell thickness, you’ll pass them out a week later. See visible results after two months, with further improvements in future sessions, so you can quickly and painlessly get your pre-baby body back.

Estheclinic - EstheCryo treatment
Finally, the non-invasive EstheCryo treatment freezes extra fat permanently, with just minor discomfort. The treatment targets both hard and soft fat, and shrinks it by up to 30 per cent. Afterwards, the body will flush out the fat deposits. Initial results can be seen within a month of the treatment, while more evident results showing after two months and firmer skin in the treated area. As such, you’ll need to go for a second treatment two months after the first session.
First, two large suction vessels are attached to the problem area, drawing fatty tissue into the vessel. This may be uncomfortable initially, but the area will go numb after 10 minutes once the temperature at the target area drops to minus five degrees Celsius. The vessels can cover a larger surface area, or you can treat multiple areas simultaneously.
After the treatment, aside from a little tingling and some pins-and-needle feeling in the treatment a few days later, you should feel no other discomfort. Thus, you’re able to resume your normal activities. Those with very thin skin in the treated area might see some slight bruising.

Slimming Treatments by BTL
Goken Aesthetics Practice - Emsculpt Treatment
Both dads and mums can enjoy this EmSculpt® treatment to help them regain their svelte figures. EmSculpt® is the world’s first non-invasive butt lift procedure. This is done by shooting high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy into the skin to help build muscle and tone the body. Furthermore, the treatment is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. BTL’s research has also shown an increase in muscle mass by 16 per cent, and reducing the waistline by about 19 per cent.
First, the rubber paddle on the target area will produce intense electromagnetic waves causing involuntary muscle contractions. These contractions will release free fatty acids, breaking down fat deposits while increasing muscular tone and strength. This is similar to the effect of doing crunches and squats, but achieved without any intense workouts.
Next, the body rebuilds and repairs muscle tissues, for stronger and firmer muscles. You may feel the same soreness after this treatment as you would after a workout. The treatment is squivalent to doing 20,000 crunches or squats in just half an hour – something even hardcore athletes are unable to do. Hence, this technology builds new muscles through these forced contractions while destroying fat cells in the area. For best results, it’s recommended to have four sessions over two weeks.
Address: 277 South Bridge Road
Opening Hours: Monday to Friday, 10am – 8pm; Saturday, 10am – 3pm
Duration: 30 minutes per treatment
Price: For first-timers, enjoy a special price of $800, usual price $1,000.
