Needed to Get Rid of a Few Extra Inches - Santa Barbara, CA

I'm 30 years old exercise regularly and eat mostly healthy. I had a few extra inches I couldn't get rid of so I began my research, thank you Realself for all the info! I was looking for something that I didn't need to go under anesthesia for and found Coolsculpt and Vanquish. I considered Coolsculpt but liked the idea of warmth so I chose Vanquish. Dr. Handels office offered I free consult so I met with him and his staff, I was given the details and told I would see my full results 6-8 weeks after I completed all 4 treatments. You always wonder if something so easy and painless will really work, but I booked my 4 treatments and received their special. Each session was painless, I experienced a warm sensation similar to a tanning bed and noticed what they called "hot spots." There was a girl in the room to make sure I was comfortable and a fan is available if you get too warm. Thru my 4 treatments I was measured and weighed each time, I did lose several cm during my 4 weeks but had to remind myself to be patient! About 6 weeks after I noticed my jeans fitting better and my belt buckle had to be tightened! I'm so excited I feel great! I would highly recommend Vanquish to anyone who needs to rid a few inches and does not want to go under.

Dr. Handel was friendly and informative. He explained all my options in detail and gave me a great amount of his time. Please see my experience below.
