Eager but Careful
I was recommended Liposonix recently, a non-invasive treatment with no downtime, burns fats and tightens skin at the same time. I’ve focused much of my time on face contouring, making sure I have the right facial and products to help cope with skin aging. Guess it’s time for some body contouring too. And so, I made an appointment to see Dr.Gabriel Wong at SL Clinic.
5 Things You Can Do
1. The Doctor
He is the critical part of the whole treatment. Dr. Wong was friendly, professional and kept me occupied with chit-chats and advices.
The squirting of water on the targeted area helped cool down, so more water.
During assessment, the nurse and doctor will take measurements, snap photos for results reference and draw squares on targeted areas. So, wear something you’d be comfortable in.
I had my goal in mind, chanting (to myself) “Jeans, jeans” and imagining my fats “melting” away.
5. Keep Busy
Bring your phone in, play games, look at photos, text your friends, do anything just to keep your thoughts away. I took a (painful) selfie ha!
Why SL Clinic?
The doctor matters most and after my experience, I am glad I had Dr.Wong to walk me through this. He’s also one of the few that can administer Liposonix (used mostly on tummy fats) on thighs. SL Clinic is one of the first ten clinics in Singapore this treatment was first introduced in Singapore. At that time, it cost about $250-$300 per square. It’s about $200 now. At SL Clinic, it is $150 per square currently (In my case for example, it’s $150 x 18 squares) which is one of the most competitive.
How is it working for me?
Right on the first day of treatment, I saw that it was more sculpted and contoured on those areas. There were some bruises on my inner thighs but no downtime nor affected me in anyway. The marks subsided completely in about 2 weeks. After a month, my pants are feeling less tight. I will be heading to SL Clinic for a review soon. Till then, it’s jeans, jeans, jeans!
