After doing 4 weeks of reading and research, I...
I chose CSA over other places because the procedure is done by a registered nurse and they have performed more procedures than any other places in southern california.
I went in earlier today at 8 a.m. to start the procedure and finished at 12:30 pm. They did right love handle & left stomach on the first hour. They then did the reverse on the 2nd hour and then did the back during the 3rd hour. The only "pain" felt was when the plate initially sucked the area to be treated. It's like having some one pinch really hard on your love handle. It lasted for 45 sec. and then I was fine.
They gave me follow up instructions with what to expect and a 90 day follow up appointment to see the results. They also said they will be contacting me periodically to see how I am doing and to call them at any sign of pain. It's been an hour after the procedure and the only discomfort I feel is when I touch the treated area, otherwise, I wouldn't notice anything.

Michelle was great to work with. In my initial research, i e-mailed 3 places on a Friday night. To my surprise, the office e-mailed me back right away and was able to schedule a consultation with me for the following Tuesday all via e-mail. After the consultation, I had a lot a couple more questions that I e-mailed her and she promptly replied right away. On the day of the procedure, she drew out the area to be treated and massaged the area after each treatment. She periodically checked back in with me during the treatment to see how it was going or if I needed anything. They provided snacks, beverages, magazines, and a TV.
