Another virgin experience ticked off my list as I had undergone a session of the latest Bio Sculpture Treatment at Shou Slimming. Shou Slimming have 3 outlets in Singapore and the one I went was located at Velocity, Novena Square. The post will probably be a detailed process of my personal experience since I have been wanting to get rid of those annoying fats located around my lower abdomen. I want to correct others perception that being skinny does not necessary mean no ”spare tyre”. Having one made it even more shameful for me to even admit.
The Bio Sculpture Treatment started off with me stripping and changing into a disposable underwear provided and lying with my belly exposed to the slightly warm red light hue. As explained by my therapist, the treatment involved the use of FIR (Far Infrared Ray) technology to target localised fatty deposits as well as to stimulate the body’s natural cellular stimulation while aiding in detoxification.
There were a total of 3 different types of Nano serums used in this Bio Sculpture Treatment. The therapist did explained to me each serum’s purpose in mandarin before using each of them. As shown, the first 2 serums were used under the red hue, followed by a 10-15 mins long belly massage/torture. I have attached a video that I have recorded for reference below. It was rather painful as my belly was constantly being pressed downwards (from middle and sides) for optimum results I supposed.
The third serum used to spread across my belly was cold and gel-like. One of them could possibly be the Bio Clay which has the function to seal in the effects of speeding up overall fat-burning, skin tightening as well as to encourage overall hormonal balance.
Shortly after the 3 serums, the treatment proceeded on with a cold bandage reeking strongly of herbal extracts. My therapist did warn me in regards to the smelly smell beforehand, but I somehow loved the 草药 (herbal medicine) smell instead!
After the mummification process of my belly was completed, a device of metallic studs was belted across the herbal bandage. These vibratory stud were explained to target important vital points for effective slimming results. A ‘pain-test’ (intensity level) was performed to ensure that I wasn’t in too much of a discomfort since it could be painful to some. My advice would be to withstand the discomfort and go with the normal settings suggested by your therapist for optimum results. The timed session lasted for about 45 mins as the device would vibrate aggressively on specific areas from time to time.
I tried taking a nap to pass time but unlike facial, I could not. The last ‘Beep’ sounded and my treatment has ended. From the pictures, my belly area was slightly red after the treatment and it took some time to subside. The entire treatment duration was about 1 hr 15 mins.
For the following 2 days, my belly was aching just like after doing 1000 situps the previous day. (Not that I could do that amount since I could barely hit 40.) Thankfully the pain subsided on the third day and my normally tight pants actually had a bit of leeway! Hopefully I do not fill this space up too quickly within the next few days.
In celebration of the launch of Shou Slimming Bio Sculpture Treatment, a first time trial session would cost $89. It is available at all Shou Slimming outlets.
