If you’ve been following all my slimming posts, you’ll know that I’m always on an on-going, always-on healthy eating, body contouring, weight loss, fat loss program.
I’m 8 months post pregnancy now, and finally I feel like I’m back to what I was before. This is with many thanks to my doctor at The DRx Clinic, Dr Hui Yun, for recommending that I try Vanquish ME™. This fat reduction and body contouring treatment ain’t cheap but it definitely is an effective way to lose the inches. Wait till you see my before & after photos.
Vanquish ME™ is the latest FDA-approved body treatment offered at The DRx Clinic and I was super enthusiastic about it because it is the ONLY contactless RF technology with the largest treatment area in the industry.
In simple terms = The Vanquish ME™ treatment is painless and reduces fat over a large area during each treatment. Efficient!
I’ve tried all kinds of body contouring treatment and believe me, a lot of them aren’t painless but Vanquish ME™ is completely painless. COMPLETELY. It’s pretty amazing.
So I signed on for 4 sessions of Vanquish ME™ for fat reduction and 4 sessions of skin tightening treatment to reduce the fat around my tummy area – this is The DRx Clinic’s Body Beautiful Programme.
Every session of Vanquish ME™ takes about 1 hour. It all starts with an X-wave therapy which utilises acoustic wave pulses to induce vibration in the connective tissue for a tightening and firming effect.
It also helps to stimulate blood circulation and prepares the area for the Vanquish ME™ treatment. You’ll get used to the sensation of having a little hammer hammering at your fats. It’s painless and I even fell asleep once.
Then comes the star of the whole treatment – the Vanquish ME™!
See how it covers my entire flank without touching my skin at all?
Love how wide the coverage of the adjustable panel is. It can cover the whole abdominal area and flanks without touching my skin. These panels emits RF energy which heats up the underlying fat, causing it to die naturally while leaving the surrounding skin and muscles untouched (this process is called apoptosis).
Once the fat cells die, it will be metabolised by your body and removed naturally. That’s why it’s important to drink a lot of water 2 days before and after the treatment. It helps the device to tune to the fat cells and helps the body eliminate the fat cells more efficiently.
Here are more pictures of the procedure taking place!
Through the 45 mins treatment, the consultant will periodically check on you and ensure the heat is bearable. As for me, I’m a really tired mom of 2 boys and I just sleep through every single session.
The procedure is very comfortable and does not require any anaesthesia and does not have any down time. During the procedure, you’ll feel like there was a heat pad placed on your treatment area. There is mild redness at the treatment area after that, but that disappears in 1 – 2 hours. There is no downtime.
It’s super comfortable for a treatment this effective. Really gotta thank Dr Hui Yun…!
I actually felt the difference after 3 sessions. I felt lighter and I bought 4 new dresses that weekend, just because I felt a lot less bloated. :X
Now that I have completed all 4 sessions of the Vanquish ME™ treatment at The DRx Clinic, I’m going to move on to doing the subsequent 4 sessions of the skin tightening treatment. This is part of the specially designed body contouring programme called the Body Beautiful Programme which includes 4 sessions of Vanquish ME™ and 4 sessions of skin tightening treatment.
This is SUPERB for those who desire maximum fat reaction and contouring results within 8 weeks. I was at the clinic for my usual skin consultation with Dr Hui Yun when I saw the posters about this treatment. I love that every session takes only 1 hour and you go in and you step out and you’re done, until the next well. My weekends are really precious because 2 days each week is all I’ve got for my kids. Taking 1 hour aside for this each weekend is very do’able for me. 🙂
Anyway, I’m going to write about the next 4 sessions of skin tightening treatment too, so stay tuned. 🙂
