Easing into the lull of March, there comes a moment when one realises it might be too late to get back on track for the perfect summer bod, especially after a two months of feasting during the holidays. Goodies from Christmas, New Year and Lunar New Year are carried forward – that loving box of bak kwa Auntie May queued for three hours to buy seems impossible to finish. One would very much rather an easier, more efficient and effective way to lose that belly fat and build muscle at the same time, thank you very much.
Mendis Aesthetics has the answer to provide for the above problem.
Recognising the consequences that physical flaws can have on a person’s sense of self, Mendis Aesthetics provides an advanced range of services with the latest industry innovations to allow clients achieve the physical appearances they desire. High-tech and painless procedures are carried out by their team of aestheticians, helmed by Dr Rohan Mendis.
Their services range from skincare concerns to fillers, and they champion the fact that they can help you slow down the ageing process. What intrigued us the most, however, was their EmSculpt service. This service aims to not only create a slimmer body but also to improve tone and strengthen one’s core, and it has been proven to have an average of 16% increase in muscle mass whilst reducing an average of 19% fat.
Backed by seven independent, multi-center studies from USA, this completely non-invasive treatment boasts of neither side effects, down-time nor scarring. In each 30 minute session, the EmSculpt machine stimulate powerful muscle contractions that are unable to be achieved naturally. These contractions signal fat cells in the area to break down their contents and be released as free fatty acids, inducing excessive demand for energy resulting in permanent death of fat cells which are metabolised by the body and excreted as waste. Simultaneously, muscles need to adapt to such conditions and the results are growth in volume and multiplication of muscle fibres.
Results are usually reported four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatment. Usually one would worry if the results are simply one-off, but clinical studies have shown that the incredible results are fully maintained three to six months post treatments because EmSculpt causes apoptosis, or irreversible fat cell death.
Choose from a wide variety of stubborn areas: from abdomen, upper arms and love handles to thighs and back rear. There seems to be no where EmSculpt cannot treat to help one achieve the perfect beach body.
Emsculpt treatments are $900 per session. Learn more about Emsculpt and book an appointment with Dr. Rohan Mendis at www.drmendis.com. Mendis Aesthetics and Surgery is located at #04-17 Mandarin Gallery, tel: 6235-1728.
