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.

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).

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!
