Everyone has their areas of concern and insecurities regardless of how fat/skinny you think he or she is, and we all simply have different body shapes.
As I'm the type to eat a lot, the bulk of my fats skip my tummy and head right into my thighs (this doesn't mean my tummy doesn't have fats ok, just lesser than my thighs).. and it doesn't help that I'm not even 1.6m haha!
I have what they call THUNDER THIGHS.
Having been insecure of this part of my body for a long long time, I jumped at the opportunity when I heard that Dore Aesthetics offer Fat Freezing for thighs.
A highly accredited aesthetics establishment, you can see their awards and articles featuring them on the walls of their premises.
Before any treatment, it's important to have a proper consultation to explain what you hope to achieve from the treatments offered, and what the procedure would be like, how it works, and pain level etc.
For myself, I told the consultant that within one treatment, I'm not expecting very drastic results (like from liposuction), but I just want my thighs to be slightly less bulky.
She explained that the Fat Freezing treatment (using FDA Approved Cryolipolysis Technology) at Dore Aesthetics uses a non-invasive cool body shaping device to eliminate fat without surgery. The applicators they use will freeze the fats in the target area, and these selected fats will be removed from the body by apoptosis process, which is the natural method of cell death. So I'll need to drink a lot of water after the treatment to help drain the unwanted fats away by our body's lymphatic system.
This treatment is best for adults who are lazy to work out, or have busy schedules, and don't want to go under the knife.
Best results would be from 1 month to 3 months' time.
Common areas of treatment:
I found the consultation session really informative, and it feels like they really knew what they were doing, so it gave me a lot of assurance.
Time for treatment!
Took some photos before the treatment & marking my fatty thighs to target the specific areas.
I was informed that the problem with my thighs is actually the back part, resulting in the bulky outlook. Thus, this was where they needed to focus more on.
They first placed gel pads on my skin to prevent any frostbites as the machine would freeze the fats till under 0 degC!
Next there was a tight squeezing sensation (totally bearable) on my thighs which I was secretly happy about because I know it would destroy my fats hahah!
Pain level: 0.5/10
The machine would squeeze and freeze the fats for about 45 minutes (usually treatment time is 45 mins to 1 hour per area), so you can really just take a quick nap like I did.
Aftermath of the treatment - a really cooling sensation on my thighs, some mild redness and that's it!
I walked around in heels with no problems after that too.
You might want to avoid wearing mini skirt or shorts for the next few days if there are any tiny bruising.
I had some small bruises for 3 days before they completely subsided.
Absolutely no downtime, I still went to enjoy a carnival after the treatment, knowing that I can look forward to slimmer thighs!
My favourite part during consultation was the therapist telling me there was no need to restrict my diet :D
I was so so happy to hear that, cause I'm the type whose mood is heavily reliant on food LOL!
Back at Dore Aesthetics 1 month later for review photos to be taken.
BEFORE & AFTER
Sorry I don't have a nice butt or thighs ok, and yes I have a lot of stretch marks too which ijs why I don't like to wear revealing clothes. Try not to judge too harshly....
And TBH I don't work out I just eat eat and eat hahah.
As you can see, no edits done (stretch marks all still there), and the results are way better than I'd expected!
I'd thought it'd be something really mild, or I'd also be okay with no visible change, because I've been binging a lot during Xmas & New Year's Eve.
So I'm really quite shocked myself at the results.
The targeted treatment area was quite visibly improved, and even the cellulite marks are less obvious.
And this is just after ONE treatment. I'm totally tempted to go for more now lol!
The therapist also told me the best results would be from now till 3 months after treatment, I can't wait!
Thanks Dore Aesthetics for showing me the wonders of modern technology, such that I can have a safe, non-sweaty and super comfortable way of dealing with my fatty thighs!
