Is your waist circumference more than 88cm if you are a female or more than 102cm if you are male?
The World Health Organization (WHO) considers the above waistline as visceral obesity which is potentially dangerous as it causes serious health problems.
So, what exactly are Visceral Fat and Subcutaneous Fat?
The fat you can pinch on your waist, arms, legs or anywhere else is all subcutaneous fat, stored just beneath the skin.
Visceral fat is stored within the abdominal cavity found around muscle and vital internal organs such as the liver, pancreas and intestines.
Why is Visceral Fat harmful to our health?
Storing excess visceral fat puts pressure on vital organs like your heart, kidneys, and liver, making it harder for them to function properly.
Visceral fat is closely associated with increased risks of several health problems such as:
• Cardiovascular diseases
• Type II Diabetes
• High blood pressure
• Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
• and other associated health problems
How does ReduStim work?
ReduStim is a medical device based on BioStimology®, a low frequency alternating BioMagnetic field is completely harmless and does not cause any adverse effects on the body. With over 20 years of clinic studies, this painless action is based on the muscular stimulation without causing any destructive cellular process.
ReduStim’s low frequency alternating magnetic field (50 Hz) oscillates from 0 to 4 gauss to open the calcium channel and release calcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. This action stimulates muscle contractions in both smooth and striated muscle.
Muscle contractions induces energy consumption in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate(ATP) and calls for natural lipolysis – breakdown of adipocytes (fat cells) and release ATP from visceral and subcutaneous fat.
Other than stimulating fat lipolysis, ReduStim’s additional action stimulates lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins and water retention. You’ll feel light as air after one treatment.
What other health problems can ReduStim help?
- Postnatal obesity protocol
- Treatment of abdominal obesity in menopausal women
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in overweight and obese women
- IVF Protocol
How many sessions are needed?
A minimum of 12 sessions is recommended in the form of express or traditional treatment. A minimum of two 45-minute sessions per week, over two to six weeks.
Depending on each person’s slimming goals, the treatment can be continued with supplementary sessions. After the starter treatment, 1 to 2 maintenance sessions per month are recommended to maintain the results.
Who is a suitable candidate?
This treatment is suitable for anyone who wants to get rid of excess abdominal fat to reduce associated health risks.
However, this treatment is not suitable for:
- Pacemaker carriers
- Pregnant women
- Patients suffering from a serious illness
- Patients suffering from skin conditions or skin injuries (cuts, ecchymosis)
Is there any downtime or side effects?
This 45-minute treatment is completely painless with no downtime. Avoid a heavy meal 1 to 2 hours before treatment. It is also important that you do not consume carbohydrates or sugary food 4 to 6 hours after the treatment as the BioMagnetic energy is working to burn the targeted fat.
*Please kindly bring along a pair of leggings (fully covered toes or leggings with socks) and long sleeve top for all Redustim treatments.
