Date of treatments: March 2018 (6 sessions over 3 weeks)
It’s no secret that my 2018 resolution is to get back on track with fitness (and of course, no secret that I’m not doing particularly well) so I jumped at the chance to restart my engine once more with Kowayo Aesthetics.
Like almost all of you guys, I’m quite skeptical when it comes to miracle slimming treatments – if these work, then why do people still need to work out and eat healthy right? The whole world would be slim! So don’t continue reading this post thinking that I’m sharing some miracle treatment that lets you lose 10kg in a month – trust me, if that’s out there, it’s definitely not safe.
EnCurve Treatment – What’s it all about?
This treatment uses a high-tech medical-grade machine to reduce fat cells permanently through apoptosis-inducing (programmed cell death) radio-frequency. The energy actually penetrates deeply into the fat tissue to cause it to denature and break apart. The fat cells are then supposed to be able to leave your body naturally (so you are encouraged to drink lots of water!).
How comfortable were the treatments?
I have a low tolerance for pain or extreme heat (I really hate being put in a heat blanket to sweat it out) so trust me when I say it was very comfortable. The machine is put above the area that you are targeting, so there is no contact at all. The area might be slightly warm, but that’s it. In fact, I use each 30-minute session to catch up on my sleep.
Did I do any thing special to help the treatments?
Although I tried to kickstart my fitness journey using this as a motivation, I wouldn’t say I changed my lifestyle totally to warrant a huge impact on the results. I managed to gym twice a week for the first 2 weeks (the last week I totally bailed on exercise since life was totally crazy *cough*excuses*cough*) but I attended media tastings and ate as normal. I did try to increase my intake of water as recommended though!
Did it really work?
I am actually quite surprised at the results, to be honest. I expected some disappointment (from myself and the staff) but I lost 2.5cm on my upper tummy AND 2.5cm on my lower tummy.
Thank goodness they didn’t weigh me (that always stresses me out), so I get to be a little pleased at the results.
Most importantly, I felt a little more confident about my body and it gave me an extra boost!
Should you try it?
That’s totally up for you to decide, but why not? Especially if a big event is coming up, or if you’d like something to motivate yourself like me! For great results, I recommend pairing it with exercise and a healthy diet (because they are still important) and loads of water.

A huge thank you to GotIdeas PR & Kowayo Aesthetics for the opportunity to try this out!
