Best Body Contouring – Abdomen/Tummy
Twin-Lipo Bodytrim Treatment, from $196 for 30 mins.
ClearSK, Tel: 6100 6868,

Best Body Contouring – Thighs
Liposhock for Cellulite Reduction, $400 for 45 mins.
Simply Aesthetics, Tel: 6384 2598,

Using Acoustic Wave Therapy, a machine delivered high-energy acoustic waves into the desired areas to help break down and disrupt fibrous tissue. When new collagen is formed, an inflammatory response is triggered, resulting is thicker, smoother skin.

Kowayo Aesthetic Clinic, Tel: 6884 4297,

Post-pregnancy weight loss might sometimes result in the natural formation of cellulite around the thighs and buttock area. Using a mini handheld applicator, this treatment effectively targets problem areas and helps to reduce lines between six to eight weeks.


Best Anti-Cellulite Treatment
Exilis Elite, from $600 for 30 mins.
Healthsprings Aesthetics, Tel: 6262 3660,

By delivering heat deep into skin, this is designed to melt away fat and tighten the skin as the body’s adipose tissue is broken up. After the treatment, toxins will be naturally flushed out from the body.


Best Beat The Bloat Fix

Expressions, Tel: 6235 9890,

For firmer skin, a patented cream is applied onto areas of concern before you are covered by a multi-polar thermal blanket which encourages you to sweat out toxins.

One Beauty Spa, Tel: 6338 4979,
