Very Painful Extremely Supportive Staff - Richmond, VA

I had this treatment yesterday. First, I'll say I have a very high tolerance to pain meds and a lower pain threshold. It was very painful. I think it should occur under some type of anesthesia for comfort purposes but understand that defeats the point of the product's marketing. Can you make it through it? Yes, but not with out some tears. I had 18 spots total on abdomen upper and lower. That cost was $3,500. By the time we got to the flanks, I was breaking down. We reduced the amount of spots from 7 on each side to 4 for a total of 8. Nothing was ever said about a cost reduction because I did not get the whole area treated, but I will call and ask them about that later. The flanks cost was $2,500 - which now I feel like is a lot for only 8 spots.

I'll up date with pictures and results in a month or so-although it can take up to four months to see final results.

Update- I did speak with Dr. Sundin and he explained that there is not necessarily a certain amount of target treatments in an specific area like flanks. My particular body and pain threshold would it allow for the upper flanks to be treated. I was happy with explanation and his prompt response. A little bruised and sore today. Drinking a lot of water. Will update later.

Bruised for about 2 weeks. Very sore. No way I could exercise. However, I do feel like I am seeing minor changes. A long way to go....
