While a proper diet and a regular exercise regime can lead to a healthier you, sometimes, even that cannot get rid of stubborn fat that accumulates in problem areas like the belly, butt, hips and thighs. To get the shapely silhouette of their dreams, many women are now turning to aesthetic treatments like the award-winning Cryo-Lipolysis by Zimmer Z Lipo. When combined with Z WavePro shockwave therapy, this cool combination delivers superior results that lets you say goodbye to fat for good.

Wonder Machine

With more than 10 years of experience in the aesthetic fi eld, Dr Gerard Ee knows that reducing stubborn fat is perhaps the most difficult thing to do. That’s why he turns to Cryo-Lipolysis – the safest, most effective and non-surgical alternative to reducing fatty tissue. But to be the best, he has to use the best equipment, which is where Zimmer steps in. “Z Lipo is a revolutionary new generation Cryo-Lipolysis treatment. It’s able to cut down treatment time in half because it has two probes instead of one. Older generation machines required longer treatments because only one area could be treated at a time,” he explains.

Frozen Assets

Cryo-Lipolysis specifi cally targets problem areas by freezing fat cells. Crystallised fat cells then die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Soon after the procedure, individuals who have undergone successful treatment will see a reduction in unwanted bulges and bumps as well as tighter, smoother skin. “The process is extremely safe. The science behind thetechnology is well proven with numerous clinical papers,” Dr Gerard assures. “There is next to no pain when the procedure is being performed and apart from some mild swelling and bruising, which lasts for a few days, there is no down time.”

Body Contouring
While effective, Cryo-Lipolysis is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It has been touted as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, but the results are not as dramatic as those seen following traditional liposuction-type surgery. “The ideal customers are busy working adults. They take care of their diet but have little time to work out and need to pay special attention to their areas of stubborn fat,” says Dr Gerard. He recommends waiting at least 8 to 12 weeks between treatments to see best results.
