My First RF Body Contouring Experience at #SkinPhilosophie

For the past few months, I've been getting a lot of call outs from my family and old friends. No one is used to seeing a 130-pound Paulline. I miss the 100-something-pound version of me.I know I'm not (yet) overweight and if you see me in person, I'm not that big. Some may still call me skinny. But the big weight gain is troubling me. I'm not used to carrying this much weight in my body, even when I was pregnant. Not to mention that I almost always have to carry Mila which is at least another 10 pounds more.

There had been lots of attempts to get back into a fitter, healthier me, at least on paper. I just keep coming up with excuses. I get discouraged when I don't see any result after a few days.

During one of our meetings with Skin Philosophie's Dr. Kyla Talens (a UK-trained Aesthetic Dermatologist), she mentioned something that's very interesting for me. She said that most of her clients wants immediate, quick results when they go to her clinic. Who doesn't right? But then these treatments may not be permanent. Unless you work for it and continue living a healthy, active lifestyle.

It got me thinking that maybe, if I see immediate results, it will boost my confidence and encourage me to continue with my get-your-body-back program. So I went ahead and asked Dr. Kyla for her recommendation. One thing you should know, this pretty doctor has a holistic approach with her practice. She considers the needs and the budget of her patients. She also promotes sustainable actions to improve your over all health by recommending the right food and exercise, as well as positive thoughts and stress-free living for your mental health.

I told her I want to trim down my waist. It's always been a problem area for me. Most mommies would know it's almost impossible to get it back to where it was after giving birth. She recommended the Therma-Conductive RF Body Contouring. RF or Radio-Frequency technology is a non-invasive, pain-free body treatment to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, firm skin, boost collagen production and tackle any pesky fatty deposits that won't budge with exercise. It promises to tighten the skin and improve tone, without any pain or downtime at all.

RF Body Contouring Procedure

The procedure was quick and relaxing. Before we started, the therapist measured my before-procedure stats. She took 3 measurements, 1 at my midsection, passing though the belly button. The other two were a few centimeters above and below the first. We immediately started the procedure then. All I really did was to lay down and she worked her magic. The machine's rod can get pretty hot so she constantly applies a liberal amount of gel to protect my skin. I felt the heat like it was really burning all the fats inside but it was not uncomfortable at all. I should say that it felt more like I was getting a tummy massage. I noticed that the therapist spent more time on my side, perhaps to give a more defined shape. After 40 minutes, we were done. I did not even notice the time because I was asking a lot of questions and my therapist was very willing to answer and address any concern I had.

RF Body Contouring Results

Immediately after the procedure was done, we took measurements again. The original points were marked off so we could see the difference. Just look at the photos below and tell me it's amazing! Heck yeah! I was really happy seeing those numbers. I lost a total of 9 centimeters. Woohoo
I will go ahead and say it again - this treatment is not permanent. Results of one session may last 2 to 7 days, depending on your lifestyle. As with any procedure like this, you need to complement it with the right diet and exercise. To see a more lasting result, it is recommended to have a few more treatments depending on the extent of change needed.
Right after the treatment, I was off to a date with Hubs. Told you, no downtime. It did not even feel sore. The next day, I was expecting a little bruising but there's none. And I was able to keep the inches off for a few days as promised. Because I did not want to waste the treatment, I actually ate better and (attempted) to exercise. My theory worked. I just needed a little kickstart and see some results to get me going.

For those needing quick fixes or those who need a boost, RF Body Contouring is worth a try. It's a secret shortcut that may just be what you need to bring back your body-confidence.

  1. That's the thing with most people - we live in an instant + express everything generation that even with weight loss, we want express results. I like these kinds of treatments and if blessed with extra time, I would even try it. Supplemental to a healthy lifestyle + RF treatments, I think one's sure to have that ideal weight and body.

    I have been hearing about RF but have not really tried it yet. would this cm lost be permanent or temporary? given that you will eat your normal food consumption?

  3. Whenever I feel that I got heavier, my go-to would always be Pilates. But a session of body contouring would be a great treat. Would love to experience this myself.

  4. RF treatments will best work if this goes hand in hand with exercise. Anyhow, those lost centimeters are worth it!

  5. you're doing really good for yourself. keep up at it and don't let down. I remember when i was trying to get back to healthy leaving after almost 3 years of neglecting my body. it wasn't easy at all but i knew if i was going to achieve my goals i had to make it a lifestyle. Nice read, Flores. -Noah

  6. great! I'm happy for your attempt, what about their price? ...yes, I agree with others its a lifestyle change.... food, exercise, etc.

    I've been curious about trying this out as I've seen so many discounts offered on deal sites. I think I need a little boost in my weight loss and fitness as well.

  8. WOW! I wonder what would regular RF Contouring treatment would do! I will try this treatment after I give birth.

  9. I don't know which one is harder, to gain weight or lose weight. Maybe I'll just stick with being thin, I just need to eat a lot rather than doing exercises everyday. Or maybe I will just cut food if I'm fat. Hindi rin kasi ako gaano mahilig kumain.

  10. It took away a lot of centimeters upon a treatment. Imagine if you do this consistently.

  11. Great results Paulline, thank you for sharing. Plus, keep the awesome work :)
