I Can Wear Shorts Now! Cellulaze @ Renewal Body Contouring, - Durham NC

- 10 May 2012
I had been self conscious for some time about cellulite on the sides of my thighs - even thinking back to high school I can remember seeing dimples in the mirror which I absolutely hated. I've tried various things over the years, creams, derma rollers, endermologie.. every trick in the book, you name it... nothing worked. I work out at the gym constantly- am thin and fit & the only part of my body that annoyed me was my outer thighs :( I had kind of resigned myself to wearing longer shorts forever out of embarrassment. I am contantly googling to stay up to date on any new technology or remedies for cellulite and heard about a new treatment - cellulaze being offered in Europe last year.. reviews seemed encouraging, so I thought I would give it a try when it was approved here. I went in for a free consult and everyone was really friendly & informative. I saw before/after photos of patients and was very impressed (wow, this really could work!) so I scheduled the procedure for the following week. I was a little nervous, but knew what to expect because they were so thorough.
I changed into a robe, the nurse gave me valium and pain meds and while those were taking effect, the doctor came in and made markings on the area to be treated. (The markings come off with baby oil on a washcloth easily afterwards.) I was taken into the room for the procedure, laid on the table and the doctor cleaned & numbed the areas (I felt only a tiny sting). Once the doctor started the cellulaze treatment, I was so surprised because there was no pain whatsoever, I could barely feel that anything was happening at all. I was chatting w/ the nurse during the treatment and before I knew it, we were all done. Afterwards, the nurse helped put the compression garment on me which I wore for a week - I would take it off only to shower. I was really anxious to see the results, but I was pretty bruised and a little swollen for a couple of weeks. I am now one month out and can tell SUCH an incredible difference already and it is supposed to keep on improving for a year and last permanently. I can see a faint sort of mottling under the skin where I was treated, but it improves day by day and I'm the only one who can see it. I can hardly believe it, but cellulaze works. My skin feels so much tighter there also - an additional benefit! I may do my whole body :) Please ask any questions - I'm very happy to answer them and give you more info on my experience.
Excellent in every way.
