so i’ve been desperate to get rid of my arm flabs for the longest time..
guess it’s partially cos of how fat i used to be, so although i lost the weight, i didn’t work to tone up the areas and now they’re still flabby and are hanging off my arms most disgracefully! -.-
2003. whenever i show my friends this picture, they cannot stop laughing!!! one guy said my arm looks like a club :(( thanks, ah.
unfortunately, i still have super flabby arms which i hateeeeee!!! can’t hate any part of my body more than my arms, except maybe my thighs. even though doing pilates for the past two months has helped to tone up my arms slightly, my underarms are still flabbier than a chicken wing. sobs.
i was introduced to a different method of body contouring and skin tightening without any downtime and is non-invasive: Reaction™!
Reaction™ is also touted as the new generation in body contouring & skin tightening treatments, it combines the mechanism of advanced RF energy and vacuum therapy that work with the body’s natural regeneration process to deliver safe and efficient treatments for cellulite, body contouring and tightening of the skin.
headed down to NeuGlow The Aesthetics Doctors, which have a branch conveniently located at Novena Medical Centre, just a few stops away via MRT for me 😀
i spoke to Dr Gerard Tan, who was very nice and friendly! he didn’t laugh at my arm flabs at all HAHAHA. Dr Gerard explained abit about Reaction to me, and what to expect during the session, and off i went to the therapy room for my first Reaction non-invasive body contouring session!
here’s the therapist Joey who measured my arm circumferance for me. walao my arm is like 25.5cm across ;_; so depressing!
for the integrity of this post, i didn’t photoshop and liquify any of the pictures okay. welcome to my flabby chicken wing arm world. BOOHOO.
the fat/skin there hangs so loose, if i wave my arm i think it’d jiggle for the next 10 seconds lor! try the wave arms experiment and you’d know what i mean!! it’s damn gross! 🙁
and a look at the miracle machine! don’t understand any of the buttons and display on it la, as long as it works can already.
we got started! 15 minutes for each area, and the machine has a few different settings: it’s powered by patented CORE™ technology featuring 3 distinct RF modes as well as an innovative 4th dimension – multi-channel mode – that simultaneously incorporates all three treatment modes!
there’s also heat involved in the treatment (to induce your cells/collagen to be remodelled effectively!) so there’s a warm sensation that gets abit hot sometimes! it’s at a temperature of 42 degrees if i’m not mistaken! 🙂 the hand piece also applies suction to the area being treated, which maximizes the penetration of RF energy in the treatment area and also increases local blood circulation, stimulates lymphatic drainage and assists in the shrinkage of fat cell volume! sounds amazing!
here’s a close up of my flabby arm being treated, the temperature was getting pretty high, so you can see there’s some redness on my arm already! 15 minutes on each arm, the process was quite comfortable! all i did is to lie down there and talk to Joey while she was doing the treatment. LOL. slight heat sensation on the arms, but nothing too painful except for one particularly hot jolt :S
how my arm flabs look after treatment: angry and red that they’re being attacked by Reaction™!!! hohohoho. BE GONE, CELULLITE & ARM FLABS!
and re-measurement again after treatment!
DENGDENGDENG.. i lost 0.3cm on my lower arm straight away!! upper arm, added another 0.5cm HAHAHA. because the area will become slightly swollen after treatment! the swelling and redness will subside in a few days time, which would be the most accurate time to take measurements.
you will also feel that the area that’s been treated has tighter and firmer skin, and less cellulite!! (SAY NO TO ORANGE PEEL SKIN). bet you didn’t know you can do Reaction™ on your face with good results as well!!
though results after 1 session are not really so visible la. for optimal results, at least 4-6 sessions are required! one session costs $380, with a package price available (not sure how much)! you can find out more about Reaction™ here.
still considering if i should sign up for a package or not. cos.. it should still be cheaper than lipo right? :X :X :X
you can go to http://www.neuglow.com/ to find out more about NeuGlow The Aesthetics Doctors and the range of treatments they offer! NeuGlow The Aesthetics Doctors also offers many other aesthetic solutions as well, like fillers, liposuction, IPL and etc! my experience with them was excellent, they were very informative and friendly, and i felt absolutely at ease with them 🙂 considering if i should do fillers on my nose and under eye (to get rid of the dark circles!).
if you’re thinking of any aesthetic procedures like me, i’m sure you’d feel extremely safe and confident that your beauty is in good hands with NeuGlow The Aesthetics Doctors, as i did! their professionalism and knowledge really won me over! 🙂
