Even people who have a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) and are not overweight can complain of unsightly bulges that no matter how much exercise and dieting they do, they can’t seem to get rid of.
Liposonix and Coolsculpting by Zeltiq are 2 non-invasive procedures that help in localised fat reduction. Usually, 20-30% of fats in a particular area can be removed after one session. Results are seen in 6-8 weeks after treatment.
Interesting facts on fat cells: Usually we have a fixed number of fat cells by the age of puberty. How we actually appear fatter is when each fat cell swells up to many times its size from the accumulation of fatty deposits. It is NOT an increase in the actual number of fat cells.
The above treatments work by destroying a population of fat cells each time it is administered.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Question: What exactly is Zeltiq Coolsculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved, clinically proven, non-invasive, no downtime, no needles, no scars treatment to get rid of fat under our skin by freezing the fat cells from outside your body in 40 minutes.
Question: How does it work?
Freezing the fat cells causes them to self-destruct and die. As fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the other cells, CoolSculpting can effectively kill fat without collateral damage to the surrounding tissues. Over the following weeks, your immune system will clear away the fatty cellular debris and remodel the area to give you a slimmer silhouette. Results usually become visible in 4-6 weeks after the procedure and can continue to improve in the next few months. Consistent dieting and exercising can also help to prolong the results.
Question: After CoolSculpting, where do the fats go? Is CoolSculpting permanent?
After cryolipolysis, the body processes and eliminates these fats for good. CoolSculpting is permanent and is best paired with adequate exercise and diet control for the best results. Additional sessions will also enhance the results.
Question: Are there any side effects or downtime?
Most people tolerate the treatment very well. The common side effects are mild pain in the treated sites, bruising and nerve trauma. As Coolsculpting doesn’t require incisions, there is no downtime and our patients can return to their normal activities almost immediately following the process. In fact, they may even undergo treatments during their lunch breaks.
Question: Am I a suitable candidate?
The best candidates are those with noticeable fat bulges in certain areas they would like to get rid of. Candidates with unwanted fats that resists diet and exercise can also consider this treatment. CoolSculpting offers applicators that can fixate on small bulges and effectively freeze their fats. While CoolSculpting is a great alternative to liposuction, do note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese.
Question: Is CoolSculpting safe in Singapore?
This procedure is FDA-cleared for the love handle, abdomen, and thigh. It should only be done under the observation of a licensed doctor/clinic.
Question: What is the price of CoolSculpting?
The Coolsculpting price in Singapore depends on your area of concern and ultimate goals. For instance, flanks may require 2 cycles per session. Upon consultation, our doctors at The Chelsea Clinic will help you create a customised treatment plan specially tailored to your goals and budget. Currently, the Coolsculpting price is $399 per cycle.
Question: What is CoolMini?
CoolMini is based on the same cryolipolysis technology as CoolSculpting but uses a smaller applicator that treats smaller pockets of fats. Areas that can be benefited from CoolMini include the double chin, axillary (armpit) and knee.
Keep your chin up!
An FDA approved fat-freezing treatment, CoolMini by Zeltiq has an applicator that is uniquely designed to treat small pockets of fat targeting chin, neck, underarm, bra bulge and other problem areas. It uses safe and controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat cells. Each session reduces up to 20-25% fat and can be done on a monthly basis until satisfied.
The procedure is non-invasive and you may resume normal activities after treatment.
A consultation with the doctor is prior to the treatment. CoolSculpting is also available at The Chelsea Clinic at $399/area. All prices are inclusive of GST.

Build muscles and burn fat with EmSculpt®
Current non-invasive body shaping treatments in local market mainly address fat and skin. But what happens when one has less than an inch of pinchable fat, or want to improve the tone and shape of one’s stomach or buttock? EmSculpt® is an FDA-Approved treatment shown to actually build muscle and burn fat without one having to break a sweat.
Typically, one third of one’s body is covered in muscles. EmSculpt® uses electromagnetic waves to stimulate the underlying muscle. The contractions are “supramaximal” and during a 30 minutes session, the abs/buttocks contract equivalent to a workout of 20,000 crunches/squats.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is HIFEM®?
A: EmSculpt® is based on HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology which induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions.
When exposed to these supramaximal contractions, the underlying muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme condition. In return, it responds with a deep remodelling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.
Q: What are the typical results following EmSculpt®?
A: On the average, clinical studies (with over 200 participants) showed these results after 4 sessions of EmSculpt®. Fat and muscle are measured with imaging- CT scans and MRI studies.
- 19% fat reduction
- 4cm loss in waist circumference
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (also known as diastasis recti)
- increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after consistent treatments)
- 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
- 96% patient satisfaction rates
Q: How many EmSculpt® treatments are needed?
A: Clinical studies with EmSculpt® for the abdomen and buttocks treated patients for 30 minutes, twice a week for 2 weeks, a total of 4 treatments. Typically, one treatment every 3-6 months for maintenance is required to maintain results.
Q: Who is a good candidate for EmSculpt®?
A: Adults in good shape who desire more definition of their abs or lifting of the buttocks are ideal candidates for EmSculpt®. EmSculpt® is well-suited for those who workout but just can’t seem to get a six-pack or a perky buttock. Good candidates are those already physically active and adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Q: What areas of the body can be treated with EmSculpt®?
A: EmSculpt® is FDA-cleared only for the abdomen and buttocks, however you can consult with our doctors at The Chelsea Clinic for fat metabolism on other areas.
Q: Does it really works?
A: Yes, the EmSculpt® has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven independent US based clinical studies. EmSculpt® reviews have shown positive patient satisfaction rate.
Q: How fast will one see results?
A: One should begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments.
Q: Does EmSculpt® hurt?
A: EmSculpt® is painless and there is no downtime. To date, there have been no adverse reactions to the treatment. Most EmSculpt reviews mentioned that patients feel muscle soreness the next day, similar to how it feels the day after a good gym workout.

All in One Fat Reduction + Muscle Building
The newly launched EMSculpt NEO is an FDA-approved body contouring machine to combine both fat reduction and muscle toning into one single non-invasive treatment. The applicators simultaneously emit HIFEM waves and RF energy for improved results in a shorter span of time. Similar to its predecessor, the destroyed fat cells are naturally disposed through the body.
High Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic (HIFEM) Waves
- Induce supramaximal contractions, which cannot be done through voluntary exercise
- One session is equivalent to approximately 20,000 crunches or squats
Radio-Frequency (RF) Fat Reduction
Permanently reduce fat cells through controlled heating
Not only does the EMSculpt NEO help with body contouring, it also improves Diastasis Recti, a condition whereby abdominal muscles on either side of the belly button are separated, causing a tummy pooch. It is commonly seen in women above 35, post-pregnancy or in men with abdominal obesity.
Individuals with Diastasis Recti may experience symptoms such as lower back pain, poor posture or even hernia. With regular EMSculpt NEO sessions, individuals can expect to see an improvement as the core muscles gradually regain strength.
Consult our doctors to see if EMSculpt NEO or any of our other body contouring treatments can help

Got a big belly?
A big belly is not only unsightly, it also rings alarm bells of an unhealthy lifestyle with a high risk of health hazards. This can give way to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer, and can increase the rate of infertility. ReduStim is an obesity treatment that combines low frequency magnetic fields and controlled micro-pressure to reduce abdominal fat and trim the waistline. During the treatment, one will put on a special suit connected to a device to emit electromagnetic energy to target both subcutaneous (what you can pinch) and visceral (deep abdominal) fat.
When abdominal fat should be a cause for concern.
Anyone who is carrying excess fat around the stomach and midriff area should be concerned for their health. Subcutaneous fat sits under the skin and is usually visible. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, sometimes genetics, can contribute to the build-up of subcutaneous fat. On the other hand, visceral fat refers to deeply situated abdominal fat that surrounds one’s vital organs. Some levels of visceral fat are normal but too much can result in health problems such as insulin resistance (diabetes), inflammation, and heart disease. One is considered to have abdominal obesity if one’s waist circumference is higher than 88cm for women and 102cm for men.
How does ReduStim works?
ReduStim takes the form of a device linked to a bodysuit that covers the body, from feet up to the abdomen. The suit contains six inductors that transfer magnetic energy to the specific target areas (calves, outer thighs, knee and abdomen). During the 30 minutes session, two actions take place simultaneously:
- Main action- The emission of biomagnetic field stimulates the release of abdominal (visceral) fat.
- Secondary action- An upward pressure is exerted to stimulate the body’s biological lipolysis mechanism. This facilitates body drain and the elimination of toxins.
Who should consider ReduStim?
- Overweight or obese patients.
- Patients suffering from health problems such as infertility, obesity, diabetes due to the high percentage of visceral fat.
- Patients dissatisfied with post-natal obesity.
Recommended treatment program
Overweight people: A total of 12 30-minute sessions with 2-3 sessions done per week. Obese people: A total of 12 45-minute sessions with 2-3 sessions done per week. Along with a session of ReduStim, physical activity is recommended as this allows for the direct trigger of the contraction of most skeletal muscles, hence accentuating fat lipolysis in the body.
Will the fat return?
With proper dietary management and ReduStim maintenance session once a month (optional), you can keep your fat percentage under control. A healthy meal plan consisting of food that helps to increase your metabolism and moderate exercise should also be put into action.
What are the contradictions?
We do not recommend ReduStim for these patients:
- Pregnant women
- Patients suffering from skin injuries or skin conditions
- Pacemaker carriers
Also, other contraindications concerning the micropressure function of the device include:
- Deep venous thrombosis (DVT)
- Infections (erysipelas, lymphangitis)
- Arteriopathy (disease of the artery)
- Untreated heart problems
- Clotting disorders
