Stubborn Fat

The term ‘stubborn fat’ means the fat deposits in different parts of the body that usually don’t respond well to diet and exercise. If you have tried every diet available but still have stubborn fat, you need a correct diagnosis before you move onto another solution.

Areas where stubborn fat just won’t budge

The most difficult areas to tone up and slim down are:

  • Belly fat
  • Love handles
  • Bra bulge
  • Saddlebags
  • Double chin

A holistic approach to treating stubborn fat from the inside-out becomes a necessity for real long-lasting results.

Treatment for Stubborn Fat

8th Sense’s signature approach to treatments requires a combination of aesthetic procedures and integrative medicine methods:

  • Aesthetic procedures include cavitation, lipolysis and radiofrequency.
  • Integrative medicine approach finds the root cause of the stubborn fat. Causes include hormonal issues (insulin resistance, high cortisol levels, thyroid problems, estrogen dominance), detoxification issues, depletion of essential nutrients and bad dietary habits, gut problems, hereditary predisposition etc.

Our approach to stubborn fat

We use a completely holistic approach with relevant testing that is tailored to every patient.

Cavitation treatment

This is the cutting-edge technology for body reshaping. It is a painless and safe method, used to destroy adipose (fat) cells in localised areas. Cavitation uses ultrasound waves that alternately compress and decompress fat cells, causing them to burst. Afterwards, your body’s natural drainage mechanism eliminates the melted fat.

Lipolysis treatment

Lipolysis is a non-surgical method for dissolving small to medium sized unwanted localised fatty areas that often do not responding to diet or exercise. Small injections containing natural medicines are administered locally to dissolve fat. There is initial swelling in the area that disappears within few days.

VelaShape treatment

VelaShape 3 is a new innovative technology that combines infrared light, radiofrequency, vacuum and mechanical pressure which precisely targets the fat tissue. It usually requires 4 sessions but it can be used with higher settings as a once-off procedure called “ Vela once”. The treatment does not result in downtime and there is no significant discomfort.


TriPollar painlessly delivers radiofrequency to smooth and tighten the skin, affecting the underlying fat. Simultaneous fat targeting and collagen tightening work in tandem to boost results, and additional muscle contraction is designed to tone the underlying muscles. This treatment is used for the thighs, buttocks, arms, and abdominal area.
