A Better Figure & More Confidence with Theresa Beauty!

pinkumbrella

My readers will know I’ve been very interested in slimming programmes and treatments recently. Indeed, I’ve been finding out about slimming products like pills and this popular detox drink (that also encourages weight loss) called teatox. Well, before I sidetrack, it’s really because I’ve set my weight loss aim – to lose 5kg and be back to my very slim days when I was doing lots of sports and cheerleading back in junior college. This desk-bound job definitely isn’t doing justice to how I want to look like, especially with age catching up.

 If I don’t lose the weight now, then when? friesFries – one of my BIGGEST weaknesses, even though they add a load to my waistline and give me sorethroats

Unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle habits result in harmful toxins being created in our body, which accumulates over time, thus creating difficulties in our body. A very common consequence caused by this act is the decrease in metabolism. I don’t eat super unhealthily or totally indulge in good foods without control, but I don’t watch my diet very carefully either. Like many others, I have a sweet tooth and soft spot for desserts, cold sweet beverages and high fat, deep fried snacks and chips. Every girl’s favorite, isn’t it?

Yeah it’s so hard to resist fast food sometimes – McDonald’s can’t stop creating new burgers for its consumers!

 Also due to the lack of exercise, slow metabolism is likely to lead to weight gain and increase in body fats. Obesity is a threat to the entire health including cardiac health. It generally results in decreased energy levels, stamina and a feeling of continuous fatigue. Perhaps I haven’t become obese (many people will say I’m far from it), but I’ve decided to start increasing my metabolism and lose those stubborn fats I’ve had all these years. Facts aside, I really miss those active days when I could run for miles without much fatigue or breathlessness (blame it on the age?), and fit into the tiniest tops and skirts. I mean c’mon, who doesn’t like to show off a little contours right? Hahaha!

stopdreaming

Yeah stop dreaming and EATING!

Thanks to Theresa Beauty, I’ve begun my journey to a better figure and health as I’m typing this. Fitting into those figure-hugging outfits are no longer an issue for me. It also means that I can dress up as confidently and freely as I want without limiting myself to any outfits.

For a start, to stay healthy from the inside, a detoxification process at this point is considered vital. The best method to follow this cleansing process is to use natural antioxidants found in organic juices and similar products. I’ll elaborate more about my 3-day detox programme just drinking organic juices and consuming very light foods like salads and fruits in awhile.

It all began with a Body Composition analysis at Theresa Beauty (Toa Payoh) which gives my consultant and therapist, Felice, an insight into the gross distribution of the various elements of my body, e.g. my body composition in terms of water, fat and lean body mass.

She also takes an overview of all the associated risks and coexisting medical problems, social and personal situations and precipitating factors that may be related to my present weight (which to me, is not ideal). This information helps set the guidelines for formulating an appropriate and feasible program that achieves weight loss while promoting wellness for me. Theresa’s interiors has a very comforting look and feel that makes me feel like it’s a haven for relaxation while slimming my way towards my physical goals.

For my first treatment after the consultation, the focus would be on detoxing my body system. I was led into a spacious treatment room with a comfortable atmosphere to change into bathing ropes.

1st Session

P3292974

The lights were thoughtfully turned down for a more relaxing and conducive feel during treatments, and possibly to make customers feel less self conscious of themselves.

I was given a slimming massage while lying on a bed that was heating up to give my body a round of detoxification. I was covered warmly with blankets to perspire as much as possible on the hot bed, literally, to maximize the effectiveness of the process. It lasted for at least half and hour, and I was feeling a little uncomfortable towards the end when the heat became stronger. It was necessary, nonetheless, and I was relieved climbing out and taking a shower after the bout of perspiration. Just 10 minutes after the shower, I felt that pleasurable sensation – like I’ve just completed a workout! It was an amazing feeling of lightness when you know that your body has flushed out most of the toxins you don’t want!

2nd Session

To introduce this machine that I used for my 2nd treatment – it’s the 3-MAX.

3-MAX is an innovative 3-in-1 system for

1) Perfect body shaping

2) Cellulite reduction and

3) Dynamic eye lifting. Definitely non-surgical, does not cause any pain, side effects or discomfort

3-MAX has the following characteristics/features:

  1. Synergetic combination of multi-polar RF, Vacuum and Cavitation (for cellulite reduction and body reshaping)
  2. Targeted treatment for eye & neck lifting (using a specially designed bi-polar applicator)
  3. Dynamic & strong vibration effect (by a special pneumatic suction system)
  4. Lymphatic drainage effect with 4 types of pulse

What was applied on me was the Ultrasonic Cavitation, meant for fat reduction & cellulite treatment.

Stimulating continuously with strong cavitation pressure wave leads to disrupt the emulsion and triglyceride contents in adipocytes. The released fatty acids are cleared by endogenous processes.

Multi-& Bi-Polar Radiofrequency and Vacuum

3-MAX™ USER INTERFACE

3-MAX user interface

The latest radiofrequency technology that painlessly delivers focused and optimal RF energy to the skin surface and to subcutaneous fat layers. Controlled energy is delivered via three or more electrodes, centered between them, and limited only to the treatment area. This focused delivery results in improved treatment efficacy requiring much less power. The treatment is painless and pleasant because of the relatively low power needed.

The bi-polar radiofreqvency heats the tissue in 5~10 mm depth, increases oxygen intracellular diffusion by heat and promotes metabolism of fat cells & lipolytic activities. The combined effect of radiofrequency and vacuum is the ideal fat reduction and cellulite treatment with excellent results and no side effects.

3-MAX™ the Optimum Solution for Cellulite and Body Shaping treatment

Ideal combinations of powerful Cavitation, RF and Vacuum comfortably achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body through a safe, non-surgical painless treatment.
+ the ultrasonic cavitation applicator continously emits sounds waves at an intensity that combines the acoustic energy with a termal effect, mainly in the deep fat layer.
+ after the cavitation treatment, the RF with vacuum suction acts by delivering thermal energy and facilitating lymphatic drainage in the fat layer which is at a lower depth than the region treated by the cavitation

3rd Session

The 2nd machine I tried in my third session has an amazing repertoire of 41 programmes! From stress-relieving massage to thigh toning to face lift to lymphatic drainage to targeting the different types of cellulite, this machine is practically a one size fits all solution to many issues.

P4053082

While I had laid comfortably down, the branch manager SK and her assistant/trainee Candy was preparing the machine for my utilization, strapping on fabric wraps and fastening the wire controls, taking about 10 minutes to ensure that all my target areas have been addressed – mainly the thighs, tummy and the back of my arms. Bye bye fats and flabbiness!

P4053085

When the treatment began, I felt like I was “zapped” lightly in the above mentioned specific areas for the machine to work its magic. It was performed in 2 phases – detoxification followed by firming/toning. The treatment lasted for about 30-40mins. And I was done!

So this concludes my first 3 treatment sessions with Theresa Beauty, and I have to honestly say that I really enjoy the treatments which were very comfortable and snappy. I’m in and out of the beauty center in less than an hour, which is perfectly awesome to fit into my busy schedule. Moreover, it’s not too far from my home in Toa Payoh 🙂

For slimming treatments to be effective, it’s necessary to go for them frequently i.e. 2-3 times a week.

There’s no point to visit once, stop for a month and come back again at irregular intervals because then you’ll probably see little or no results, simply due to the inconsistency.

To supplement my 3-month long slimming programme at Theresa, they have very kindly sponsored me 27 bottles of the organic juices in a variety of flavors and concoctions.

Theresa’s 7-day Organic Juice detox program will help their customers shed unwanted pounds quickly while also effectively cleansing the body of harmful toxins and pollutants. This was a sold immediately – losing that few pounds off me is means 3 steps closer to my physical goal.
Theresa guarantees that in 7 days, you will look and feel significantly better!

I heard that most customers who are on this programme found themselves shedding those pounds off within the first 3 days. They have also found that they are sleeping better and their overall mood has improved positively and energetically.

This Organic Juice Detox is a very powerful cleanse and you can expect significant healing and protective benefits. The health benefits depend heavily on the microscopic, beneficial chemicals inside the juices – like enzymes, catechins, antioxidants, and polyphenols.

Here’s a breakdown of exactly how this Detox program will work for you:

1. Beautiful Skin and Anti-Aging

Positively loaded with antioxidants, which aid in a clear complexion, mostly thanks to enhanced organ function. They help keep you young and vibrant looking!

2. Detoxification

Naturally formulated to pull any nasty stuff right through your system. It helps your liver and kidneys process and eject waste faster and more efficiently.

3. Weight Loss

This is the one you’ve been waiting for! Recent research suggests that organic juice phytochemicals and flavonoids may play important roles in various areas of health. These studies demonstrate a wide range of healthful benefits attained with a consistent intake of Theresa’s organic juices, including:

• Reduced body fat by activating the enzyme that is responsible for dissipating triglyceride

• Significantly lower cholesterol levels

• Reduces high blood pressure

• Reduces blood sugar

• Reduced risk of stroke, heart failure, cancers and diabetes

• Helps protect the skin from UV radiation-induced damage and tumor formation

• Delay of some forms of aging – dark spots and wrinkles – when combined with regular exercise

4. Reduces risk of disease

Damaging free radicals in the body can accumulate over time, leading to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other degenerative diseases. Antioxidants work to reduce free radicals and heal the damages from the inside out. Less damage means a reduced risk of disease.

I have just completed 3 Days of my Detox Programme with Theresa and am already feeling lighter and slimmer! Throughout the 3 days, I was mostly consuming only the organic juices, unless I really felt like I really needed to eat. I consumed light, low calorie/fat foods like salads, muesli bars and fruits to curb the hunger pangs.

Dorra Slimming Review!

Although I’ve tried quite a few places for slimming, I’m still excited about my first visit to dorra, the tummy, hip and thigh slimming expert from France, who specialises in providing fat-burning and body-shaping solutions that target and banish unsightly bumps and bulges on the lower body of women.

Lower body weight problems have been and will always be the main issue troubling most women. Women tend to put on inches on their lower body more easily than men because of the higher estrogen levels in their body and the fat cells there which are more prone to fat storage for childbearing purposes.

 Besides, women burn fat differently from men. Women who have dieted will notice that as they lose weight, body fat starts melting away from the upper body first, while lower body fat tends to stay put. Furthermore, unhealthy habits such as long hours of sitting, love for high calorie food and sitting cross legged make it even more difficult for ladies to lose the excess fat on the lower body.

If only we could have a treadmill each, right at our work desks?!

Exactly for me, I would consider myself living a sedentary lifestyle right as most of the day (and even night, omg!) I’m sitting at a desk working on the computer. I find time to exercise whenever I’m free, or after office hours, but that can really be so challenging when work becomes hectic (recently this is more frequent).

So I’m really thankful when dorra comes knocking with a trial for me to experience slimming at their outlet. I had an open mind about it, casting away any suspicions of hard-selling or sales tactics, and just want to try their slimming treatments at my problem areas.

A little introduction about dorra’s promise before my review:

dorra’s proven effective therapies work by targeting your trouble spots, breaking down stubborn fat and cellulite without bringing damage to your skin, muscle, bones and nerves. Specifically developed to treat lower body concerns such as love handles, bulging tummy, cellulite, heavy thighs, wide hips or post natal weight gain, our extensive range of anti-flab and anti-cellulite solutions can be customised to one’s specific needs, and can banish even the most stubborn fat that you’ve had for years.

 Currently with 6 outlets in Singapore, dorra has helped more that 16,000 ladies to slim down quickly and effectively, bringing them an inch closer to the ideal figure they’ve always yearned for. dorra has been particularly well-received among working ladies and busy housewives because the first treatment only requires 90 minutes!

I went to the Heartland Mall outlet, and was about 35 minutes late because of bad traffic and well, couldn’t get out of bed as I was down with flu. The great thing is that it wasn’t difficult to get there, and I spotted dorra almost instantly after arriving at Level 2.

To me, dorra had a welcoming feel to both its entrance and interiors – not too clinical, so overall I enjoyed the positive vibes from the staff, who behaved professionally and presented themselves well. One of them ushered me in to have my belongings put neatly into a dedicated locker, no questions or unhappiness about my lateness. Whew! After taking some pictures around the parlour, I took my height, weight and a Body Composition Analysis in just a few minutes. The Analysis was done with the help of a body composition analyzer, which found out my waist-hip ratio and the percentage of body fat, protein, water and salt (or sodium) in specific parts of my body. These will be carefully monitored throughout my slimming journey at dorra.

A typical consultation room at dorra’s

Thereafter I was introduced to Cherry, my personal consultant, a slim and pretty lady who had polished manners and a sincere attitude. Cherry offered me a one-to-one consultation that allowed her a preliminary understanding of my problem areas, eating habits, lifestyle and possible causes of my problem areas. To be honest, and I don’t mind revealing here – Cherry deduced that my metabolism is rather low (likely due to low frequency of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle). Another concern is water retention. One consolation is that I don’t have much cellulite. Yeahhh!

Cherry explained that for that evening’s session, she will perform one Customised French Formulated Slimming Treatment. For me, it’ll be the Bye Bye Fat Treatment using a gentle booster to activate my body’s lipase (tummy area) and another booster to reduce water retention (full body).

Large frame just beside the reception, reminding customers of their desired body shape. I guess most women will like to look like that, no? To me, the image doesn’t just present a healthy, slender lady who has a body to flaunt, but that she also possesses an outstanding personality and confidence that she’s ready to face the world. Just look at that picture-perfect pose!

For the next 20-30 minutes, I was in a private room having my treatment. I must say I really enjoyed it, Cherry is both a wonderful consultant and therapist, and was patient and sweet throughout. At dorra’s, your consultant and therapist is the same person, to ensure a consistent level of privacy and personal touch as only she attends to you and your needs.

To mention a little about the machine I used – unlike other treatments I’ve received at other slimming/beauty centers, I feel comfortable with dorra’s as the applicator feels very warm and soothing; no discomfort at all. As Cherry was using the applicator to massage my tummy and waist/hip areas, together with the booster gel, I felt so at ease that I nearly fell asleep! The only thing that prevented me from doing so was my conversation with Cherry…she was giving me some healths tips and advice, and answering my queries throughout. After that session, I would highly recommend Cherry as my preferred therapist cum consultant as I find her very pleasant, likeable and genuine.

Before I realize it, I was done with my customized slimming programme, using the latest fat-burning and body-shaping technologies from France to target the stubborn fats on my tummy! Cherry took before and after photos, but I won’t be sharing them on my blog to safeguard my privacy. Overall, however, I’m happy to say that I’ve lost 2.9cm at my tummy/waist/hip/midriff areas in just 1 session! Midriff lost the most (-0.9cm), followed by waist (-0.8cm) and hip (-0.7cm).

How it works is that the a booster gel that was applied during the treatment contains mico-molecules which can penetrate deep into my skin to reach and burn excess fats. Infra-red equipment will then be used to soften the fat cells and an oxy trimming gel was also applied to improve blood circulation, which in turns aids in flushing out excess fatty acids. So you can expect to see some results in only 1 session (at least in my case). Everybody’s problem areas and weight issues are different, so I won’t be speaking for the masses. That being said, the customized programme, treatment(s) and even products used at dorra’s are definitely greatly appreciated!

Feeling good after my treatment, as I experienced a flatter tummy, less bloating and flatulence 🙂

In just 1 session, you’ll burn 600-2400 calories, which is equivalent to a 10-15km run!

No pills, no injections, no crash diets! You’ll see visible CM loss in just 90 minutes 🙂

 Subsequent treatments only require 20-40mins, saving minutes of your precious time. You can expect 14-30cm loss in just 14 days.

With lovely Cherry, who readily posed for my camera! She’s such a natural beauty, and really, I seldom praise beauticians because most of them are too sales-driven for my liking!

Thanks Cherry! For your help, advice and after-treatment texts to follow up on my condition and well-being 🙂

I was given a set of home-care to bring back – it contains the Ultimate Cellu-lite Cream 513 and Ultra Toning Gel 525. Both are suitable for all skin types.

Ultimate Cellu-lite Cream 513: Specially formulated to battle uneven bodyline due to accumulation of fats on tummy, hip and thighs. It contains actives like AMM and Methyl Nicotinate that promotes blood circulation on targeted areas and gradually trims bodyline. It also nourishes and hydrates skin epidermis layer, thus reveals a youthful complexion.

My verdict: To be used with the Ultra Toning Gel concurrently to minimize a burning sensation and slight redness of the skin due to the active ingredients working their magic.

Ultra Toning Gel: Specially formulated gel that refines and reshapes your silhouette, making your skin feel firmer, tighter and appears more toned.

My verdict: It feels cool on the skin and when massaged well into skin, the product becomes fully absorbed and doesn’t feel sticky at all. I love it!
