Do Slimming Treatments Really Work?


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.
