Fat around the waist and abdomen is a bugbear for many. No matter how healthily you eat or how much you exercise, those last few stubborn inches simply refuse to budge.

Helping you tackle this problem is IYAC Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Clinic. BTL Vanquish MeTM, the clinic’s latest non-invasive fat-busting treatment, uses radio-frequency energy to heat and destroy fat cells without harming the surrounding skin and tissues. The fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body.

According to clinic founder Dr Isabelle Yeoh, BTL Vanquish Me is ideal for those with dietand exercise-resistant fat who are within 5kg to 7kg of their ideal weight, and want to lose inches off their abdomen and waist without surgery.

Unlike other non-invasive treatments such as Coolsculpting (which uses an applicator to directly freeze and destroy fat cells), BTL Vanquish Me uses a device that does not come into direct contact with the skin and is comfortable, even relaxing.

Dr Yeoh likens the treatment to standing in front of a heater: “You’ll feel only a warm, heating sensation, so it’s a good choice for those with a low threshold of discomfort.” In addition, there is little or no downtime – which means you’ll be able to go about your usual activities straight away. In fact, you’re even encouraged to exercise on the same day, after the treatment.

The main advantage, though, is that it treats the abdomen and love handles simultaneously in one 45-minute session, making it a tim-eeffective procedure . “Options such as Coolsculpting are good for treating small, localised bulges, while BTL Vanquish Me is more suitable for those with a larger area of fat,” says Dr Yeoh.

And the results? As the good doctor says, some see results after just one session, while others, after four. “Most people need a series of four weekly sessions and can expect visible results one month after the final session.”
