I think I might have just discover the next best thing to liposuction without going through any surgery or invasive procedure. While I was not new to doing slimming treatments in spas and slimming centres, this was my first time trying the clinical grade Cryo-Lipolysis by Z Lipo (fat freezing) at an aesthetic clinic, and I have to say I was pretty amazed with the entire experience and results.

Over the years, I have spent a lot of money on slimming treatments as I tend to put on weight easily and it does not help that I have a voracious appetite. Lately, I have been doing exercises such as jogging and static exercises at home 3 times a week, but was not seeing much results.
How does Cryo-Lipolysis by Z Lipo & Z Wave Shockwave Therapy work? Are the treatments painful?
Most of the slimming treatments I have experienced in the slimming centres would put me through uncomfortable heat treatments that make me perspire a lot, hence I was pleasantly surprised that the entire Cryo-Lipolysis treatment was comfortable and relatively pain-free.
There was only an initial few seconds of pain when the suction of the applicators were applied on my abdomen area where most of my stubborn fats were located.
After that, I was able to relax and check my emails while my stubborn fats were subjected to cooling between -5 to -10 Degree Celsius for an hour.
After Cryo-Lipolysis, the therapist proceeded to do the Z Wave Shockwave therapy on my abdomen manually which uses shockwave to target cellulite, improve lymphatic drainage of the dead fat cells, body contouring and skin tightening. Other than some loud noises emitted by the machine, there was no pain at all for this treatment.
How many treatments are required to see results?

For most people, obvious results can be observed in 2-3 sessions when the Cryo-Lipolysis is done in combination with the Z Wave Shockwave therapy for effective fat reduction and body contouring.
How long can the results last?

Dr Wong (Medical Director, Kowayo Aesthetic) told me that once the fat cells are subjected to Cryo-Lipolysis, they would be dead and destroyed permanently. His words sounded like music to my ears and I was really excited to experience it for myself! However, you could still put on the flabs again if you do not watch your diet and exercise regularly.
Are there any side effects?
The next day, I experienced normal muscle soreness and slight redness on the treated area which also felt slightly tender and this lasted for only 1-2 days. Depending on individuals, some people may experience slight bruises on the treated area that will be gone in a couple of days.
My thoughts after the treatment

There is no overnight and immediate solution to losing stubborn fats other than surgery and liposuction. The results of the Cryo-Lipolysis can be observed in 8-12 weeks after the fats deposits were removed by the body’s lymphatic system naturally. You also need to drink sufficient water, do light to moderate exercises and maintain an active lifestyle to experience better results after the treatment.
I may not be the slimmest girl out there but I am really satisfied to see a flatter lower abdomen and a better version of myself after only one session. It’s not just about looking good, it’s about feeling good about yourself too! Thank you Dr Wong & Kowayo! 🙂
