Back then, one would have to go through great lengths in order to get a slimmer and curvier figure. Plastic surgery used to be quite scary, as you would need to be opened up and sewn back together again, with weeks of painful recovery time ahead.
But now, new technology has allowed us to drop a dress size or two without much effort or pain. Non-invasive body contouring machines are quickly replacing the seemingly barbaric nip-tucks of the past. And it appears to be for everyone now, from women who just want a smoother body line, to men who want to significantly reduce their waistline.
Getting a trim and sexy body is now attainable for a moderate price, with results seen in a matter of weeks without any downtime. Does it all sound too good to be true? Get to know the latest and most effective machines around.
Sexy Solutions (Belo) offers a holistic program that integrates diet and fitness with the help of state-of-the-art machines. A lifestyle change is in order with this program, as it delivers a combination of treatments with a customized diet based on your body type and personal goals. These ensure that specific body issues are tackled and results are quickly seen. (Belo claims you can lose up to two inches per session).
Sexy Solutions provides three different treatments that work specifically on the body’s problem areas: Lipo Cavitation is used in the abdominal area to target stubborn fat cells with a low-frequency ultrasound; Multi-Firm harnesses radio frequency to tighten skin, minimize fat cells and reduce cellulite; and Body Sculpt uses muscle energy pulses to push the fatty layer against muscle, causing the area to become smaller.
The extra motivation here will come from personal consultation with a registered in-house nutritionist and dietitian who will create a meal program made by the Sexy Chefs.
Cool Sculpting by Zeltiq (Marie France) works by freezing fat cells away using Cryolipolysis (cold lipolysis). This selectively, painlessly and permanently delivers precise controlled cooling to the treated area to target underlying fat while leaving the surface skin tissue unaffected. It cools unwanted fat cells in the body until they are eliminated and naturally flushed out by the body.
Each session lasts for only 60 minutes, and promises to be one of the most comfortable slimming treatments. Though it claims session results in an average of 22.4-percent reduction in fat within the applied area, Marie France stresses that this is not a substitute for a weight-loss program, but ideally for those who want to get rid of stubborn problem areas.
Tripollar Tummy (Marie France) is a machine that concentrates on the midsection to zap away bulges and loose skin coming from a pregnancy or rapid weight loss. It uses third-generation radio frequency technology to selectively heat fat cells in both deep and superficial adipose layers.
This means that as the machine heats the fat cells, it increases your natural metabolism, making fat easier to burn. It also promotes collagen production, which is just what your skin needs for it to tighten.
All you need in 30 minutes per session, and depending on your body type and problem area, may see results almost immediately. Another plus is that it is practically painless—you may feel a mild heating sensation akin to a hot stone massage. Overall, this is a great way to smoothen, contour, tone and lift your stomach and abdominal area, and reduce those love handles or muffin top.
