Well this was fun...
My stomach had a vertical scar on it from a C-Section. The scar had caused a puckering, looking like a second belly button. It accentuated the laxity in my skin. I had never worn a bikini in my life and resorted to granny type swimsuits. I was convinced to try a bikini when I was in Mexico. My stomach actually didn’t look that bad but of course to me it was another flashing neon sign.
As the treatment progressed it became colder and colder. I could feel the suction, like a vacuum. There was just a few mins of uncomfortableness then I could feel nothing! The technician, Michelle, walked me through the first couple mins until I was completely comfortable.
When the time was up she removed the device and told me she had to massage the area. It wasn’t painful at all. I did have a funny sensation in that area for a few days. It was hard to describe, not quite a pinch but perhaps a minicramp like feeling. It lasted about a week but didn’t interfere with anything. I did wear my tight gym pants during those days for extra support.
It may have been my imagination but I thought I saw results almost within a week.
