These latest fat-busting aesthetic treatments mean that you can rid stubborn bulges without hitting the gym.
Whether you lead a sedentary lifestyle or work out regularly, some pockets of stubborn fats (like on the tummy, thighs, buttocks and lower back) are just hard to get rid of. Enter the new generation of intensive, non-invasive fat-busting aesthetic treatments. Not only do they permanently destroy fat cells without going under the knife, they can sculpt the ultra-stubborn areas that are difficult to target with exercise. But some effort is still required to maintain the svelte results.“Like for all other body contouring treatments, you need to make some effort if you want to get the best results. It’s always good to exercise regularly – even walking 30 minutes daily is sufficient,” says Manon Allano, managing director at EstheClinic Singapore. “A healthy diet is also very helpful to increase the slimming results and maintain them after the treatment. Drink a lot of water to flush out the wastes and secreted fats from the body and it’s also good to avoid sugar in your diet.
