Is your lifestyle making you fat? Perhaps you need a drastic ‘intervention procedure.
“I feel like I have my old self back,” Raymond Gutierrez, twin brother of actor Richard and a celebrity in his own right, revealed upon his unveiling as the sexy new body transformed by Cristalle Belo-Henares’s Sexy Solutions. It was no secret that the television host and magazine editor was several pounds heavier than his brother, and though it did not seem as if it mattered, Raymond’s statement shows that, just like anyone else, he also desired a slimmer version of himself.
The same sentiment is shared by his best friend Georgina Wilson, model and TV personality, whose confession that she “had problem areas,” and that she once went to a Belo clinic before appearing in an underwear show because she wasn’t confident about her body, may seem shocking to many.
The two friends, however, candidly share that unhealthy habits were making them gain weight, and they never thought they would “get there,” that is, achieve the kind of body they wanted – in Georgina’s case, a 25-inch waist! The truth is, Cristalle says, everyone wants not just to look their best, but also to “feel” their best. This is where Sexy Solutions comes in. A subsidiary of the Belo Medical Group, this one-stop shop aims to achieve this goal in as little time as possible, for as long as possible.
The enterprising daughter of beauty industry magnate Vicki Belo thought of creating the perfect haven for those who wish to have a perfect body. Sexy Solutions, therefore, offers not just high-tech solutions like non-invasive slimming machines, but a holistic approach that aims to improve one’s diet, as well as incorporate exercise into one’s lifestyle.
What makes Sexy Solutions so effective, as Raymond attests, is its slimming programs tailored-fit for every individual. And one of the perks of enrolling in a program are the instant results.
“I was shocked — on my first visit, I lost 2 inches from my midsection,” he shares, adding that it was because of Georgina that he came to Sexy Solutions in the first place. The Sexy Solutions team also gave Raymond a diet plan courtesy of renowned Biggest Loser Philippines nutritionist Nadine Tengco, as well as an exercise regimen to help him maintain the weight and inch loss.
“Sexy Solutions made the process of losing weight a breeze! The treatments are painless because of the amazing new technology they have. But more than anything, it’s really the people behind it. It’s so easy to lose momentum when you’re trying to lose weight. However, the staff really took care of me and encouraged me. I feel like I’m part of this new family and I’ll be forever grateful,” states Raymond.
Georgina, for her part, adds, “I saw results immediately. Consequently, I became hooked instantly too! Areas that I had practically given up on were immediately smaller. I actually couldn’t believe the measurements after the first time I tried it because they were so drastic! I loved it right away.”
Sexy Solutions, she stresses, has been “a partner (she) needed to get that push in the healthy direction.” She enthused that, “Sexy Solutions has been a large part of my commitment to fitness. I’m so happy because I feel like I have a partner in losing weight and maintaining my ideal body. It doesn’t all happen in the Sexy Solutions clinics (exercising and dieting are integral to the program), but I definitely feel like we’re all working towards the same goal― a body that I am happy with. Sexy Solutions is my secret weapon to getting sexy and most importantly, staying sexy,” Georgina says.
According to Cristalle, it is possible to lose 4 inches in as fast as one and a half hours. Today’s machines enable aesthetic clinics to design treatment programs based on a client’s needs. What distinguishes Sexy Solutions is its use of only non-invasive procedures.
As Dr. Vicki Belo explains: “There are many ways to eliminate fat. Liposuction removes the fat cells (which one may imagine as balloons with fat inside) so that fat cannot return. Fat cells are in the third level of the skin. To eliminate fat, we have many ways. To remove 100 percent fat, there is Smart Lipo with Body Tite, which are available at Belo clinics. To remove 80 percent fat, you can use Smart Lipo only. To remove 60 percent fat, there are the Sexy Solutions procedures (Lipo Cavitation, Multi-Firm, Body Sculpt and Tite FX). To remove 30 percent fat, you have Radio Frequency (RF) treatments.”
In other words, Sexy Solutions offers one the benefits of immediate results afforded by its four different procedures “target fat cells using heat, ultrasound waves, and mechanical pressure: Lipo Cavitation, which uses low frequency ultrasound to break down stubborn fat cells in common problem areas like the abdomen and thighs; Multi-Firm, which uses radio frequency to melt fat, tighten skin and improve the appearance of cellulite through heat waves; Body Sculpt, which uses a muscle energy pulse that contracts the muscle layer, causing a “squeezing” effect of the fat layer and accelerating the liquid fat drainage; and Tite FX, the newest and most innovative non-invasive body contouring and fat-destroying machine in the market — the non-surgical sister of Belo’s BodyTite.”
Coupled with what nutritionist Nadine Tengco calls “the anti-plateau diet,” as well as a fitness program that sports science specialist Edward Mendez describes as “easy enough to do at home,” the Sexy Solutions program can help one attain that ideal body.
As the people behind Sexy Solutions state: “Sexy Solutions is a holistic fat-reduction initiative that harmonizes science, nutrition and exercise together, aids in changing one’s lifestyle inside and out. No matter how much time you put in eating right and working out, getting rid of those last few inches is the hardest. Breaking through the fat loss plateau, the Sexy Solutions’ first class treatments make tight abs, firm thighs and toned arms easily achievable. Paired with an effective diet plan by renowned Biggest Loser Philippines nutritionist Nadine Tengco and expert consultation from fitness and sports science specialist Edward Mendez, getting to and sustaining that healthier, fitter, and sexier you is no longer a dream, but a reality.”
