Back to the gym and spin class sessions

Now that Singapore’s COVID-19 restrictions have eased considerably, many things have reopened, and life is coming very close to the way it used to be before the pandemic. With more restrictions lifted, many of us are beginning to head out again. It’s no surprise that our days have become packed with all the activities we once enjoyed, be it going to the gym, heading out for workout classes, or even after-work outings and night outs with friends.

As we dust off our old gym clothes and reopen our makeup drawers again, we may find ourselves in a flurry to get ready and resume our favourite activities. However, even as our old routines come back to life, it is important to maintain a good skincare routine to prevent skin issues, keep a healthy glow, and prevent the build-up of dirt.

Ideally, it’s best to avoid wearing make-up to the gym because our sweat, oil and the increase in temperature open up our pores, which can become blocked by make-up — but sometimes, we can’t help it when we’re in a time crunch to make it for a spin session.

Maintaining a good skincare routine helps keep us looking clean, rejuvenated, and with a healthy glow to boot. Read on for our post-workout skincare guide that you can easily incorporate for any indoor or outdoor fitness session!

5 Skincare routine suggestions

A good skincare routine is vital in helping to keep our skin looking fresh. No matter how busy our days become, maintaining a good skincare routine can continue to be easy, safe, and effective. Here are our suggestions:

Washing your face

Washing your face at the start and end of the day is one of the most important steps in helping to ensure that your face and pores stay clean and ready to go.

With a small amount of gentle facial cleanser between two palms, gently massage the cleanser all over your face with gentle pressure, and rinse off at the end to ensure that all the cleanser is removed. Pat dry gently afterwards.

If you wear make-up, be sure to first remove any make-up with micellar water or cleansing oil before you cleanse your face.

Moisturising regularly

Moisturising is key in keeping your skin hydrated and locking in all the products that you have applied to your face.

In the morning, it is good to use a light cream with SPF, and in the evening, a thicker night cream with regenerative properties can be used.

Using sunscreen

Using sunscreen is one of the important parts of anyone’s routine. Sun damage from UV rays can cause your skin to age prematurely as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. Make sure to leave your sunscreen on for 20 minutes before you leave the house!

Drinking plenty of water

Drinking enough water helps to keep our skin looking healthy and hydrated. Dehydration can leave the skin feeling dry and itchy and can also cause the skin to look dull and uneven. Hydrating well helps to lock in moisture beneath the skin! Beyond that, it also helps to keep us fresh, alert, and in our best shape.

Cambridge Therapeutics’ Aquajet Dermabrasion Treatment

One way to lock in your skincare routine can be through one of our latest medical technology treatments. The Aquajet Dermabrasion is an exclusively formulated treatment option that helps to simplify and solidify your daily skincare routine.

The skin is first cleansed thoroughly, with all debris and dead skin. 

  • With a focus on Asian skin, this technology involves a 3-step Korean non-invasive therapy that removes dead skin while smoothing the skin and providing hydration and nutrient infusion. Plus, this treatment is painless and requires no topical numbing creams.
  • Following Cambridge’s “No Manual Extraction” policy, it is a combination therapy configured to reduce enlarged pores, lighten pigmentation, and solve your everyday pimple woes, helping you to achieve brighter and more radiant skin as the skin is strengthened and the nutrients and hydration underneath the skin are returned.
  • Most dermabrasion facials utilise abrasives with crystal-like materials to exfoliate teh outer layer of the skin. Aquajet technology utilises streams of fine aluminum oide or sodium bicarbonate, making this a gentler but effective alternative. The Aquajet’s ergonomic design allows for rapid diffusion of the solution (portulaca extract, hyaluronic acid and other hydrating and nourising agents) into the skin.


Flawless looking lady

With Singapore slowly opening up in our post-COVID-19 world, we are all gearing up to get ready to go out again. In between the late nights out and gym sessions, it’s important to still remember to take care of our skin.

Maintaining a good skincare routine helps to keep us feeling our freshest and helps to ensure that our skin continues to look good and fresh all through the day. With Cambridge Therapeutics, we offer a wide range of treatment options to help you enhance your skincare routine. The Aquajet Dermabrasion facial, in particular, is a great way to help your skin continue to look rejuvenated and ready for the day.

Lady doing body contouring

Ageing is a natural process and occurs with time. Unfortunately, with age comes an increase in skin laxity — everything starts to sag and droop, especially when not taken care of properly. Another effect of ageing is metabolic slowdown, which causes a shift in body composition, decreasing muscle mass and increasing fat mass. 

Fortunately, there are effective ways to tighten the skin and contour the body without having to go under the knife and endure long downtimes. 

What are Skin Tightening and Body Contouring treatments?

As we age, our dermis layer produces less collagen and can be affected by factors like sun exposure, stress, and poor diet. With lesser collagen production comes thinner and looser collagen and elastin fibres, which means less skin elasticity, causing wrinkling and sagging. 


Collagen production gradually decreases in our 20’s, but these changes are subtle, and people usually undergo skin tightening treatments from the age of 35. Certain areas are targeted to encourage collagen production and regeneration. Other than age, collagen levels reduce due to:

  1. UV exposure
  2. Smoking
  3. Inflammation-triggering diets, such as foods high in sugar
  4. Stress
  5. Genetic predisposition

Hydrolysed collagen supplements and fruits rich in antioxidants are a great help! However, to further combat these issues some treatments focus on skin tightening by stimulating collagen production and strengthening the elastin fibres. 

Body contouring treatments, on the other hand, are effective ways to reduce weight, especially targeted areas with stubborn pockets of fat. This can be done by subjecting the fat cells to extreme temperatures that kill them off, after which they are naturally excreted from the body. 

Skin tightening and body contouring can be done using a variety of technologies, from radiofrequency technology to laser-based devices. Read on as we highlight a few notable treatments to consider! 

HIFU Treatment for Facial Skin Tightening and Contouring in Singapore

HIFU Treatment for Facial Skin Tightening and Contouring in Singapore

Known as High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), this treatment makes use of ultrasound and thermal energy to produce results akin to a surgical facelift. It lifts the skin and encourages skin regeneration, keeping skin condition at optimal levels — perfect for those who want to combat weak and slackened fibres under the skin. 

Ultrasound and heat energy is used to induce a healing response, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin without the use of needles. This treatment is most effective for smaller areas of the face, such as the cheeks and chin and improves fine lines around the corners of your eye, near the eyebrows and on the neck. It also treats issues such as frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet.

Body Contouring Treatments in Singapore

As mentioned earlier, body contouring treatments often work by subjecting the fat to extreme temperatures, causing “cell death”, while leaving other tissues unaffected. Although we cannot spot-reduce with exercise, with body contouring treatments, we can. 

Clatuu360 Fat Freeze

As the name suggests, the Clatuu 360 Fat Freeze works by eliminating the fat cells using extremely cold temperatures. Based on the science of cryolipolysis, targeted areas are cooled to crystallise fat cells in a controlled manner. These cells atrophy and are removed naturally via the lymphatic system. 

Clatuu 360’s surround cooling technology can effectively reduce up to 40% of fat, with abdomen fat loss of up to 5cm after every session.

Onda Coolwaves

The Onda Coolwaves utilises targeted microwaves to reduce localised fat deposits safely and effectively. The energy is only focused where needed and is balanced with a high-tech cooling system to cool the skin and counterbalance the heat produced by the microwaves. This preserves the surrounding tissues, reducing risks such as inflammation and providing total patient comfort. 

The Onda Coolwaves has 3 main functions, which are to target: 

  1. Localised fat, disrupting the membranes of subcutaneous fat cells.
  2. Cellulite, targeting the connective tissue between the adipose lobules in more advanced stages of cellulite.
  3. Skin tightening, shrinking collagen fibres and stimulating the production of new collagen.

Vanquish ME

Vanquish ME is the world’s first contactless technology that utilises selective radiofrequency to target fat deposits and heats them at extreme temperatures, reducing fat and shaping the body. This effective treatment creates visible inch-loss and works best on large areas of the body, such as the tummy, thighs and arms. 

Venus Legacy Slimming

The Venus Legacy treatment utilises thermal radiofrequency combined with a patented MP2 Magnetic Pulse and VariPulse technology to target deeper tissues in the body. This evenly distributed energy delivery system breaks down fat cells and eliminates them through the body’s natural metabolic process. 

How will I know which Body Contouring procedure is best for me?

Unfortunately, there is no “best treatment” but rather a treatment that is best for you based on your condition, needs and desires. At Cambridge Therapeutics, a detailed consultation is first done to examine your condition. A muscle-fat analysis is done to set a baseline for accurate tracking of your progress throughout your sessions. 

How many Body Contouring sessions are recommended?

In most situations, an individual will have to go for a few sessions regularly to experience visible results and improve skin elasticity. However, the optimum number of sessions largely depends on your current condition and will be advised by your doctor or therapist during your first consultation. 

How much do Body Contouring treatments cost in Singapore?

The costs of these treatments largely depend on what technology is used and the area being treated — smaller treatment areas, like the arms, would cost less as opposed to larger treatment areas like the tummy. For example, a single Clatuu 360 Fat Freeze treatment could cost anywhere between $350 - $1000 in Singapore. 

At Cambridge Therapeutics, we offer a Clatuu 360 Fat Freeze first-time trial of $300. You may find more information on our promotions and offers, here

How long does the result last?

Body contouring treatments involve fat loss and this reduction is permanent. That being said, it is important to incorporate exercise and a healthy diet into your regime to keep the fat off. Skin tightening treatments may need regular treatments to be sustainable. 

Before and after Body Contouring treatment

What are some of the side effects of Body Contouring treatments?

As all of these procedures are non-invasive, there will be little to no side effects. However, some may experience temporary redness or bruising, which will subside within a day or two. At Cambridge Therapeutics, the patients’ comfort is the priority, and each treatment will be made as comfortable as possible for each individual. 


Skin tightening and body contouring treatments can give you that added boost of confidence to make you feel comfortable in your skin. These treatments are designed to help improve your appearance based on the consultation plan recommended to you by our trained therapists. 

Understandably, with the vast amount of technology available you may not know what treatment would fit you best. If in doubt, please contact our friendly staff to book a consultation and detailed analysis. 

What is Vaginal Atrophy?

Vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis) is the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls as a result of declining oestrogen levels, and therefore, occurs more commonly in postmenopausal women. A woman’s oestrogen levels can drop by about 85% once they hit menopause. 

Approximately 50% of women eventually develop symptoms of vaginal atrophy, including vaginal dryness and dyspareunia, now collectively termed: genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM). [1]

Having vaginal atrophy not only makes intercourse uncomfortable but may also lead to distressing urinary symptoms, often referred to as urogenital atrophy. Other causes of vaginal atrophy include a lack of sexual intercourse or decreased ovarian functioning due to chemotherapy or radiation. 

What are the symptoms to look out for?

Some symptoms of vaginal atrophy are: [2]

  • Vaginal dryness and burning sensations
  • Genital itching
  • Burning with urination
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Light bleeding and discomfort during sexual intercourse
  • Decreased vaginal lubrication during sexual activity

How is Vaginal Atrophy treated?

Your doctor may offer a variety of treatment options. Common prescriptions are:

  • Vaginal moisturisers or lubricants

Vaginal moisturisers may help restore moisture to your vaginal area. Water-based lubricants could also be prescribed for use before sexual activity to reduce comfort during intercourse. 

  • Topical oestrogen 

Topical oestrogen may provide direct relief from symptoms and limits your overall exposure to oestrogen as it is applied directly, hence, fewer hormones reach your bloodstream. These may come in the form of a cream, suppositories, rings or tablets.

Alternative treatment option: The Venus Fiore

What is it?

The Venus Fiore treatment from Venus Concept is a treatment catered to feminine needs — from vaginal rejuvenation to tightening the labia. 

It utilises a combination of Multi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF) and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF) to encourage the growth of new collagen and elastin fibres while improving blood circulation and rate of healing. This is a gentle and safe procedure, created especially for sensitive areas. 

One of the Venus Fiore’s functions is to treat vaginal atrophy. This is done by safely heating the vaginal canal to trigger a healing response that stimulates collagen growth. It also increases neovascularity to improve sensations during sexual intercourse and improves moisture levels.

Who is this treatment for?

This treatment is recommended for women who are looking to improve their feminine health, which has been affected by childbirth, ageing or menopause. 

What can you expect?

The Venus Fiore is a completely safe treatment and the process is very comfortable. You may feel a mild heating sensation and redness, but this will subside within a day and you may resume your daily routine right after. 

The treatment time would be 10-15 minutes per area. Ideally, one would need to undergo treatment once a month for 3-4 months.


Vaginal atrophy could greatly affect a woman’s quality of life. However, although 50% of postmenopausal women experience this, few seek treatment. 

It’s important to remember that it is a common occurrence and you don’t need to suffer in silence. Consult your doctor for a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. If you’re looking into alternative nonhormonal options, the Venus Fiore might be just what you need to better your feminine health.

Weight loss often ends up on our list of new year resolutions and to-do lists that we never seem to fully achieve. Sometimes, there are just stubborn pockets of fat in our body that we can’t seem to get rid of — no matter how many gym sessions we attend or diets we unfailingly stick to. 

How about slimming treatments? Not everyone likes the idea of undergoing liposuction. With advancements in technology, non-invasive slimming treatments have come about and may be just what we need to tone up areas of concern for a more sculpted appearance. 

Vanquish ME

Vanquish ME is the world’s first contactless, non-invasive and non-surgical fat removal treatment device. One of its distinctive features is selective radiofrequency to achieve circumferential reduction, fat reduction and body shaping. 

This treatment is ideal for those who are unable to target stubborn fat pockets even after exercising and dieting regularly.

Unlike many other slimming treatments, Vanquish ME treats large areas such as whole waistlines, thighs and arm areas and this saves time while delivering consistent results throughout the treatment area. 

The treatment uses a large panel that emits selective radiofrequency energy. This targets the fat layer and heats it to 45 degrees — killing the fat cells while leaving the skin and surrounding tissues unaffected. This medical-grade USA FDA approved device is safe and highly effective.

Advantages of Vanquish ME

  • No needles nor anaesthesia required
  • Short treatment time
  • No downtime
  • Painless, Contactless and Non-invasive
  • FDA Approved

Clatuu 360 Fat Freeze

Radiofrequency treatments may not be for everyone. If you prefer to focus on specific, targeted areas, the Clatuu Fat Freeze treatment might be ideal. 

The Clatuu 360’s technology is built on the science of cryotherapy and is an improved version of the non-invasive fat removal treatment, Coolsculpting. It uses a modified 360-degree surround cooling method for higher cooling conductivity.

Cryotherapy is based on the idea that, when subjected to cold temperatures, fat cells die off. [1] The Clatuu 360 Fat Freeze uses controlled cooling on targeted areas for up to 40% fat reduction.

This new and improved version of the Clatuu 360 has allowed medical professionals to achieve precise clinical results at more affordable prices while also meeting the clients’ needs.

Key Advantages of the Clatuu 360 include:

  • 360-degrees surround cooling = Effective fat reduction of up to 40%
  • No downtime required
  • No needles nor anaesthesia required
  • USA FDA approved
  • Wider treatment area
  • Faster compared to other treatments
  • Affordable

Some Advantages of Clatuu 360 include:

  • Wider treatment areas
  • Treats all possible body areas
  • Measurable and Visible results
  • Increased patient satisfaction
  • Saves time
Who is eligible for Clatuu 360?

Patients who have a BMI of less than 34 and/or are in the process of exercising and losing weight naturally are considered good candidates. Fat freezing is also useful for patients who are obese or overweight. However, selected candidates for fat freezing need to undergo consultation with their doctor and stay realistic with their desired body weight.

Recommended areas of treatment using the Clatuu 360 include:

  • Double chin
  • Armpit fat
  • Tummy (Abdomen)
  • Waist
  • Back (Flank)
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Hips
Treatment Process

The treatment lasts for about 40 minutes per session for smaller areas, such as the double chin or armpit, while other larger areas take up to 60 minutes. During this time, you’ll be put in a comfortable position while you can rest, read or use the phone at your leisure. 

Firstly, suitability will be assessed and the treatment area will be identified and measured to the exact position for the procedure. 

Next, a special matrix gel pad will be placed on the identified area to protect your skin.

Finally, the Clatuu 360 dual applicators will be set on the gel pad and switched on. Within the first 5 to 10 minutes of treatment, the patient would feel mild sucking and a cold sensation.

As the treatment process continues, the treatment area grows more numb. However, patients would experience no pain or discomfort.

Results and Downtime (Post Treatment)

As there is no downtime post-treatment, patients will be able to return to their daily activities immediately. However, patients may experience some mild side effects after treatment. These side effects include redness, slight swelling, tingling sensations, bruising, and/or aching. The side effects are common and will generally recede within 1 to 2 weeks.

The average circumferential reduction noted for abdomen fat is 4 to 5 cm per session and up to 2 inches after 4 sessions. For the thigh and arm area, the average circumferential reduction noted is up to 1 inch after 4 sessions. Please note that these are averages over our data set and individual patient results will vary.


Ultimately, some slimming treatments do work and are backed by science. Both the Vanquish ME and Clatuu 360 Fat Freeze are ideal minimally invasive options to consider, with minimal side effects and close to no downtimes. 

It is important to determine what would be best for you based on your body shape, frequency and intensity of exercise, pre-existing health and/or skin conditions and desired results.

Vaginas, as you might already know, are surprisingly resilient and can stretch to wide lengths especially during childbirth. It is a myth that vaginas will become loose after having children but it can happen should you give birth to several children throughout your lifetime.

Another factor contributing to a need for vaginal tightening would be after menopause. These hormonal changes might cause the vagina to be more lax and dry, potentially affecting the quality of your life.

Vaginal tightening surgery is a procedure that involves tightening the vaginal canal through surgery and can be combined with labiaplasty surgery to reduce the size of the labia minora. This procedure can be invasive and there is a recovery downtime.

What is Vaginal Tightening Surgery?

Vaginal tightening surgery actually covers several different procedures.

Some of the different procedures are:

  • To tighten the vaginal canal to improve performance during sexual intercourse
  • Repairing pelvic floor muscles and tightening the vaginal canal post-childbirth and post-pregnancy
  • Repairing the perineal area after damage from an episiotomy or tear that happened during childbirth. This tear could be very severe in some cases where it even affects the muscles and tissues in the anus too, causing pain. In cases as severe as this, it would require surgical repair
  • To treat severe cases of pelvic organ prolapse. This is where the pelvic organs (bladder or bowels) have moved from their normal positions and are now pressing into the vagina
  • Sexual reassignment surgery is known as vaginoplasty and can also be used to refer to surgical vaginal tightening

Why Do People Go for Vaginal Tightening Treatment?

There is a wide variety of reasons why someone might want to go for vaginal tightening surgery.

Some reasons are:

  • A loss of sensation during sexual intercourse
  • Feeling as if one’s vagina is loose after childbirth and the vagina might not have regained its pre-pregnancy form
  • Having weak pelvic floor muscles
  • Vagina scarring caused by trauma during childbirth and could be something that causes pain and discomfort which will need to be rectified with surgery
  • Having an enlarged labia. Reducing the size of the labia is often paired with vaginal tightening surgery and is important to note that the labia come in a variety of shapes and sizes. If the shape of your labia causes discomfort when riding a bike or if it interferes with everyday activities, please consult your doctor immediately

Benefits and Risks of Vaginal Tightening Surgery

Benefits and risks will defer within individuals based on health and body but there are some general risks involved with vaginal tightening surgery.

Some risks of vaginal tightening surgery are: [1]

  • Having a negative reaction to general anaesthesia
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Nerve damage resulting in permanent loss of sensation

Some benefits of vaginal tightening surgery are:

  • Addressing the issues of vaginal laxity if any
  • Rectifying any pain you might have with your vagina now
  • Better performance during sexual intercourse
  • Rectifying vagina scarring that was caused by childbirth

Non-Invasive Vaginal Tightening

There are, fortunately, non-invasive alternatives to vaginal tightening surgery. Cambridge Therapeutics offers Venus Fiore Vaginal Rejuvenation treatment as one such alternative.

This treatment can help to address the external appearance of the vagina, postmenopausal and childbirth vaginal laxity as well as vaginal atrophy.

With the Venus Fiore machine, the treatment allows for three different treatments of the rejuvenation to the vaginal canal, the tightening of the labia as well as the reduction of the mon pubis.

This treatment in particular works by combining multi-polar radiofrequency (RF) with pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF). With this combination, it aims to encourage the growth of new collagen and elastin fibres. This will help to regenerate firm and healthy tissues while increasing the rate of healing and improve blood circulation.

Multi-polar Radiofrequency (RF): The RF is safe for all skin types and is not absorbed by melanin. Through a safe and controlled heating method, heat from the RF can be distributed deeper into the tissues for collagen remodelling and synthesis.

Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF): A non-thermal mechanism, the PEMF functions to induce the release of fibroblast growth that will help to trigger the synthesis of collagen and the formation of new blood vessels for tissue regeneration. [2]

Who is this treatment for?

This treatment is targeted towards women who have experienced menopause or experienced a change in vaginal health as a result of childbirth. Pregnant women or women that have had surgery on their genitalia should consult their doctors before going for this treatment.

Is the treatment painful? Is there any downtime?

The Venus Fiore employs a safe heating method that will ensure that the treatment process is comfortable for the client. The treatment is not painful though a mild heat sensation and redness may be observed that should resolve within a day. There is no downtime and clients will be able to return to their daily routine immediately.

Each treatment session takes 10-15 minutes per area, and we recommend our clients to go for a session each month for the next 3-4 months for effective results.

The Differences Between Surgical and Non-surgical Vaginal Tightening

  • The duration of results: One of the more notable differences is the duration of the results and how frequently the procedure needs to be repeated to maintain the results. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation is more long-lasting in terms of duration but as the body ages, there is no guarantee the results will be permanent. While non-surgical treatment will need to be repeated every six months or every year.
  • Recovery time: Surgical treatment will require up to several weeks to fully recover while there is no downtime with non-surgical treatment.
  • Price: Surgical treatment will require a higher monetary commitment as well as a greater time commitment to recover post-surgery.

Pros and Cons of Both Types of Treatment

It is important to compare the benefits and risks of both treatments before making an informed decision.

Some pros of surgical vaginal tightening:

  • Long-lasting results
  • Can target more serious issues regarding the vagina
  • Improvement in sexual intercourse and enjoyment
  • Rectify some issues of the vagina that non-surgical vaginal tightening cannot

Some cons of surgical vaginal tightening:

  • Longer recovery time
  • Greater up-front investment of time and money
  • Has its own risks of infection, loss of sensation, etc.

Some pros of non-surgical vaginal tightening:

  • Safer and non-invasive
  • No recovery downtime
  • More affordable
  • Uses the body’s own tissues to help address vaginal problems

Some cons of non-surgical vaginal tightening:

  • Results are not long-lasting and treatments will have to be regular
  • Can only treat the rejuvenation of the vaginal canal, tightening of the labia and reduction of the mon pubis

We strongly recommend consulting with your doctor if you are facing any issues with your vagina especially if it is painful. Correctly identifying the problems you might be experiencing leads you one step closer to making an informed decision on which treatment will benefit you the most.

What is Cellulite?

Throughout their lives, nearly 90% of women have some form of cellulite. Relative to how they look, common nicknames for cellulite include cottage cheese skin and orange peel syndrome. In more executive terms, cellulite is the lumping and dimpling of the skin that is found near the thighs, hips, buttocks and belly of women. Even with a strict diet and fitness regimen or hours spent massaging the affected areas, cellulite can be extremely tough to get rid of.  

Pregnancy and having a diet that is high in fat and carbohydrates are some factors that can increase your likelihood of developing cellulite all around the lower part of your body. The reason why cellulite can form due to the above factors is because of the stubborn layer of fat they cause underneath your skin to protrude towards the surface and the noticeable dimpling that results is cellulite. 

The internet has several at-home options to reduce cellulite such as scrubbing the stubborn marks with used coffee grounds or massaging your skin for several hours with coconut oil. However, while you may be able to see some results, they do not last very long unless you have a lot of time on your hands for several days. Liposuction, laser and aesthetic treatments remain the only option to get rid of cellulite effectively.

What are the stages of cellulite? [1]

Stage 0: When there is no cellulite or dimpling, even when pressure is applied.

Stage 1: Only at the pinch test is Stage 1 detectable. Individuals may notice some skin congestion and water retention

Stage 2: Stage 2 can be identified by the stagnation of blood in the venous system. This causes lipedema (fat swelling) and uneven swelling of the skin. Visible in harsh artificial light, the orange skin is more evident when while sitting or standing the muscle in the region contracts. The cellulite is less noticeable while lying down.

Stage 3: When Stage 2 (i.e. swelling) is left untreated, it leads to Stage 3. Both in standing and lying positions, the dimples are visible and the skin will feel sensitive, colder, or even painful to palpation. There could be damage to the connective tissue and in order to prevent further (typically irreversible) damage, it is mandatory to treat the affected areas.

Aesthetic and Laser Treatment Options

Despite cellulite being notoriously persistent and difficult to remove even with great fitness and wellbeing, in recent years, there have been several new and effective treatments available to help you get rid of cellulite. 

We have listed 3 painless yet effective therapies from Cambridge Therapeutics to help you get rid of cellulite.

SygmaBODY by SygmaLIFT

SygmaBODY by SygmaLIFT is a unique new generation HIFU technology using a Fractional Energy Based method with cold laser combination for fat & cellulite removal, this treatment effectively targets cellulite and reduces stubborn fat pockets that are hard to burn off even with strict diet and exercise. 

One of the main advantages that make SygmaBODY better is their Fractional HIFU energy-based methods that are known for their extreme precision and depth penetration capabilities on the targeted areas. Sygma Body HIFU is the only system that integrates evidence-based Cold laser technology that is proven to modulate cell metabolism, especially Adipocyte (Fat Cell) Metabolism. 

Fractionated HIFU has 3 therapeutic effects:

  • Separates adipose tissue into individual fat cells so that it can be eliminated through cell membrane openings.
  • Drains fat-triglycerides from interstitial tissue
  • Reduces fibrous partitions between fat cells.

Cold Laser 635 is a Low-level Laser Therapy that has been used for decades to enhance healing at the cellular level. It has a very positive impact in eliminating fat cells. It also boosts hydration levels, stimulates circulation and lymphatic system and enhance blood flow which, in turn, stimulate elimation of the debris of the fat cells and fluids in the interstitial tissue via the natural lane of the lymph node.

SygmaBODY has been proven to be a successful treatment for strengthening and tightening connective tissue and reducing FAT that is located at the belly, back, thighs and arms.

Some of the key advantages of SygmaBODY are:

  • Fractionated HIFU & Low-Level Cold Laser Therapy have made it much more safer for body fats and cellulite removal
  • The treatment is much faster. A single treatment only takes 40 minutes.
  • The ultra precision of the device and technology that uniquely targets submental fat
  • The only treatment on the market that can treat larger areas such as front legs, back legs, stomach and hips
  • SygmaBody can be combined with other treatments as a complementary combination for much faster, effective results
  • Experience significant results where patients can expect 2 inches (+/-5cm) average loss from their belly after only 4 weeks*
  • Pain-free treatment that is incredibly comfortable
  • No bruising, no swelling and no downtime

Cambridge Therapeutics has also been noted as the 1st centre in Singapore as a Centre of Excellence in providing the SygmaBODY Treatment.

Onda Coolwaves™

Onda Coolwaves™ is the current permanent fat reduction treatment in the medical aesthetic scene. Coolwaves™ allude to unique microwaves that specifically target fat cells and decrease localised fat deposits in a safe, powerful and non-intrusive way. Onda Coolwaves™ are produced in a controlled manner, focusing energy only where it is required. The smart device incorporates a cutting edge skin cooling framework that cools the skin as it balances the heat issued by the microwaves. This preserves the derma and guarantees complete patient comfort while reducing inflammation, risks and side effects.

“Cambridge Therapeutics was awarded
Best Anti-Cellulite Treatment using Onda Coolwaves™ by
Singapore Women's Weekly Spa Award 2020.”

Onda Coolwaves™ targets 3 main body concerns, namely cellulite, skin laxity and adipose fat cells.

Cellulite: Coolwaves™ successfully targets the connective tissue between the adipose lobules in the more advance stages of cellulite

Skin Laxity: Coolwaves™ bring about an instant shrinkage of the collagen fibres in the dermis and stimulate the production of new collagen, making the tissue more compact and toned

Adipose Fat Cells: Coolwaves™ is able to deeply disrupt the membranes of subcutaneous fat cells safely and successfully

Onda Coolwaves™ treatment is extremely comfortable as the technology has been designed such that only 20% of the energy goes to the dermis and the heat produced is counteracted by a state-of-the-art cooling system. The remaining 80% of the energy generated infiltrates into the fat, acting effectively on the lipocytes.

When Coolwaves™ target adipose tissue, it creates the following effects:

  • Remodelling of the connective tissue matrix
  • Adipocyte metabolic changes activate the release of several amounts of destroyed lipids
  • Initiates a process of lysis of fat cells with adipocyte membrane rupture
  • Lipids are destroyed via the lymphatic system

The usual “orange” texture of cellulite is caused by the consistent presence of large fibrous shoots of collagen. This leads to a constriction of natural lobulation of adipose tissue, adipocyte hypertrophy, and water retention. The thermal energy by Onda Coolwaves™, when absorbed by these fibrous connective branches, causes the “dissolving” of fat cells and solubilisation of collagen. This, in turns, reduces the “quilted” experience of the skin. It also reactivates fibroblasts and produce new, more elastic collagen fibers.
