I first did IPL when I was 17 years old - I did IPL on my arms and legs as I used to be a very hairy kid (true story). It was impacting on my self confidence and myself and mom made the decision to do permanent hair removal. It was a painful 6 - 7 months process - There were multiple times when my skin got burnt, as the IPL light was really strong and it was delivered in "shots" one area by area.

Fast forward 8 years later and now you can do painless IPL at Esthe Clinic with MacPeel’s No Pain System (NPS). This treatment gradually raises the heat of the dermis to the temperature needed to effectively damage the hair follicle, preventing re-growth while not injuring surrounding tissue. Instead of the traditional IPL laser shots I experienced previously, which delivers pulsed light in one sudden zap, Esthe Clinic's No Pain System IPL treatment is dynamic and uses a handpiece that is swept across the skin, with the light blasted consistently at a high frequency.

Hence, this allows the light to be covered over a larger surface area in the shorter amount of time with no pain. I decided to test this treatment out for my bikini line hair removal, especially when the bikini area is more sensitive to pain. And I can testify that this is completely painless, you only feel heat on the treatment area.

Treatment Frequency

With this treatment, you'd only need 7-9 sessions to remove 80-90% of hair permanently. These sessions are spaced six weeks apart from each other and with only 2-3 maintenance sessions per year for 1 or 2 years for finishing touches.

From $48 per session for underarms to $419 per session for the full legs. 4-10 sessions six weeks apart are recommended for optimum results depending on the targeted areas.

You can find Esthe Clinic at 3 locations across Singapore, set in shophouses and in very relaxing settings.

Vera Tries - Z-Lipo with Clifford Clinic

I have always had pockets of fat just above waist, and also on my thighs no matter how hard I worked out. I'm a classic Pear shape - I tend to gain weight easily on my butt and thighs, before moving on to my tummy and my arms almost never gain weight. Because of that, I've always felt my body was imbalanced and I would try hard to maintain my weight to keep it from looking any more so.

So when I was offered the chance to try out Z-Lipo at Clifford Clinic, I was first curious to try it out. What amazed me was that the treatment really worked.

Upon entering Clifford Clinic, you’re greeted by a very relaxing reception area and then led to meet Dr Ee, who will address your concerns, assess your body and explain how the treatment works.

How it Works

Z-Lipo is basically fat freezing as a non-invasive way of permanently removing fat cells. During the treatment, two probes are attached onto a 'problem area' and your fats are sucked into a suction cup to be chilled at -5C. At this temperature, the fats will freeze while your blood still remains liquid. Hence, this damages only the fat cells and not the surrounding tissue which mainly contains water.
Once the fat cells are damaged, the body's natural immunity removes the damaged fat cells and hence it takes about 5-6 weeks for you to see the full results. I’ve tried other fat reduction treatments, but Z-Lipo is definitely more fast-acting. 

With Z-Lipo, Dr Ee was able to adjust application time, suction level and suction mode based on your problem area. The Z-Lipo probes allow for a suction massage during the treatment to ensure blood circulation and physically disrupt the frozen fat cells to lead to more improved results.

How it Feels

Each treatment typically lasts for 1h, during which the probes were placed on my inner thighs and feels similar to a “pull and tug”. It is slightly uncomfortable and quite cold when the probes suck on your fats, but it is definitely bearable. You can see a detailed video of how it works here

Post treatment, the therapist will take away the probes to give you a quick massage of the treated area. Immediately after Z-Lipo, your skin will appear bruised and swollen, and would be slightly painful and numb at the same time, since all the fats were literally frozen at sub-zero temperatures. However, this will go away after 2 days. What’s the pursuit of beauty without a little sacrifice right?

I have already finished 3 sessions of Z-Lipo and I have noticed an obvious reduction in my upper inner thigh areas - it has went down by almost 1 inch. The clinic has informed me that some patients have seen results with just 1 session, so I would definitely recommend this to brides to be, who would like to look great for their big day.

After Treatment

I shot these photos in Bali after about 3 treatments of Z-Lipo on the inner thighs, and I definitely felt more confident about my body after Z-Lipo. The pocket of fat in my inner upper thighs diminished, which has never really happened before, even when I was exercising regularly.

Z-Lipo is best suited for people who have stubborn pockets of fat which they would like to get rid of, or fats which are hard to lose despite regular exercise, as it can really target specific areas of the body to give you the desired results.

If you are facing the same issue as above, I strongly recommend you to give Z-Lipo a try, it is available at Clifford Clinic, which is literally 1min from Raffles Place MRT. It currently costs $399 per area per session, quote "VERA" for a discounted price of $300 per area.

It's the Chinese New Year long weekend soon - meaning it's time to jet off for another quick beach getaway.

Sharing some images shot in the beginning of this year during my first long cruise to Langkawi and Penang. A lot of us has body insecurities and for me it's my stretch marks on my butt (due to growth spurts when I was young), and also some cellulite on my upper things, which is especially pronounced when I seat.

How it works
I recently came across Elancyl, which is a France-based company that specializes in anti-cellulite products. The new Elancyl Slim Design contains Caffeine Complex, which claims to target skin tissue rigidification, which is one of the primary reasons causing the dimpled skin effect. Caffeine Complex is made up of caffeine, ivy and salacia (a root herb), to collectively fight against cellulite to prevent lipid depletion, detox, and de-structure collagen fibres holding skin tissues together.

The Experience
I've been using it consistently in the morning using the prescribed massage technique developed by Elancyl here. I love that the lotion is non-sticky or greasy, and is quickly absorbed into the skin, making application in the morning very fuss free. I would definitely recommend this as a body massage ritual in the morning - but in terms of destroying stubborn cellulite, more time is necessary before I make a conclusion!

This post has been presented by Elancyl but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
