After reading many online reviews about different...
There are not many places offer this treatment in CT, so I went to the medi-spa in northern CT. What I like about this spa is the owner talked to me over the phone and we exchanged emails before I went in to get a consulation, he asked for my weight and height, then told me according to my BMI, I did not need a Smart Lipo which they also offer, he suggested Cool Sculpting should work on me, so I decided to give it a try. The first treatment was $1500 for just one big applicator on my lower abdomen, which is a little expensive.
The treatment itself did not bother me much for the first time, but after the treatment, around day 10 and day 11, I felt pretty uncomfortable, my stomach upset me that I needed to call the spa to ask for advice. The owner told me he did not recommend to take stronger medicine, just over-the-counter pain reliever should work, therefore I never had any prescription drugs during that 2-week after the procedure. Luckily, once I passed the two weeks mark, my discomfort were gone, then I just checking myself and take photos to see if there's any change on me. After week 3, my husband admitted that my belly did look smaller, my husband has critical eyes, so what he said should really count.
Once I reached week 13, I considered I have seen enough result from the 1st treatment, so I scheduled a second treatment with the same spa to target the upper abdomen that was not treated at the first time. The certified technician took the after pictures of me to compare to what she took for before treatment, she did see a big difference, she put before and after phonto side-by-side for me to look too, yes, the round belly has been reduced by a lot.
When I was ready to get the second treatment, Natalie used different measurements to see if using 2 smaller applicators on each side would be better or to use just one large applicator on the upper abdomen, so she chose to use one large applicator only,, This time she really pull my fat hard, tried to grab as much fat as she could to squeeze.into the applicator, this time I felt more uncomfortable during the treatment because my skin were pulled too tight, my body felt very tense.
After the treatment, I did not suffer as much bruising, swollen, itching and pain like the first time, Although she pull me very tight, perhaps my body did not have enough treatable fat left to be target, so I see can still little more fat reduction, but definitely not such an obvious result like the first time. Since this is the same procedure for the same problematic area, I got a discount of 50%, which was $750.
I do feel I don't carry that much fat anymore, my belly is not that bulging like it used to be, this kind of feeling is good. In the meantime, I still have to watch what I eat and do light exercise so the weight won;t gain back.
I will recommend this treatment to persons who have moderate localized fat, if the fat becomes too large in area and goes too deep, then an more invasive method may get better result..
Never seen a real doctor, but the spa does have some certificed technicians who can operate different equipments to accommodate your needs.
