For someone who puts on weight very easily, I do know I need to actively do something to maintain my weight and keep it in check. I am guilty of not exercising enough recently due to the busyness of life and my work/blogging schedule. The fact that I hold a desk bound job also does not help the problem.
I promised myself to start climbing stairs and exercise regularly after I returned from my trip to Korea. Meanwhile, I was really thankful to be offered the opportunity to review a slimming treatment in Expressions to help me get back in shape.
Expressions is a recognized leader and pioneer in the slimming and wellness industry since 1989 and believes in using high quality and natural products to help one achieve holistic health, when coupled with professional and personalized services.
After finding out about my concerns and lifestyle, the consultant recommended that I do the Proslimelt treatment to help reduce inches from my waistline and tone the area. Studies have shown that it is possible to lose between one and two inches in a single treatment through ultrasound treatment.
Previously, I had also done a 3-day detoxification programme and Detonix-S treatment at Expressions.
What is Proslimelt?
Proslimelt is a non-invasive contouring and slimming technology that utilizes low-frequency ultrasound waves to soften cellulite and break down body fats by penetrating up to 5 cm deep into the adipose tissue under the skin.
It also helps to stimulate fat metabolism and its elimination, without causing any damage to the surrounding tissues using selective technological system that targets only fat cells.
I am not a newbie to slimming treatments, having spent a lot of money on slimming packages previously. I had done ultrasound treatments before on my body and face to help firm and reduce fats and know that ultrasound treatments, although painless, can feel quite “hot” on the skin.
Hence, I was really surprised not to feel much heat when the therapist did the ultrasound treatment on my tummy area, which was my main area of concern.
The therapist first applied a cold gel on my tummy before manually moving the applicator around the entire area for 20 minutes. I only felt a slightly warm sensation on my skin and nearly dozed off under the comfortable environment and soothing music.
After the treatment, the therapist wiped off the excess gel and I was happy to observe that there was no visible redness on the area unlike my previous experience with ultrasound treatments at other slimming centres.
Review of Proslimelt
Although I did not expect to see an instantaneous slimming effect only after one session, my tummy do feel tighter and slightly more contoured after the treatment. I really wish that the treatment could last longer than 20 minutes or that I could do more sessions to see better results. However, I do know that for ultrasound treatment, it is not recommended to do it for longer than 20 mins per session.
Overall, I do enjoy the painless and comfortable ultrasound slimming treatment, however, I feel that an additional massage on my head and shoulders either before or after the treatment would be something nice to have to further enhance my experience at Expressions.
