Getting a shapely bod the quick way is often a case of squeezing yourself into some Spanx to fake that sleek silhouette. The other alternatives are going on extreme diets or pulling overtime in the gym, which can take a toll on your health. The better way forward would be to make sensible changes to your eating and exercise habits—though there’s no harm in moving things along with the help of body treatments designed to get rid of excess fat cells naturally. A non-invasive option is the Lipo Laser offered by Simply Aesthetics, which targets stubborn fat in areas such as the tummy, love handles and thighs.

At the heart of the treatment is the Slimray device, which utilises a patented NASA-inspired photonic light technology to irradiate fat cells—in everyday speak, this means using laser beams to emulsify fat. Advanced Photonic Red Light Therapy is used to liquefy the fats within the cells and break them down into fatty acids, which are then released into the blood, absorbed by the lymphatic system and drained naturally via bodily excretions. This treatment significantly reduces the size of fat cells, resulting in firmer skin, less-visible cellulite and an overall shapelier silhouette.

Involving no downtime and side effects, the treatment is said to work its magic in just one session, yielding visible inch loss. The process is also said to be so comfortable—all you’ll feel is the slight pressure of the device on the target area—you can actually nap during the 30-minute treatment. Whether you’re looking to drop a dress size or lose those last few inches that just won’t budge no matter how hard you exercise, the Lipo Laser is a fuss-free way to help you achieve the toned figure of your dreams.

Lipo Laser ($300 per session) is available at Simply Aesthetics, #B1-28 Capitol Piazza (tel: 6384 2598/6384 2568).
