3/18/13 - had procedure done on lower stomach. Late 20s. 5'3" 135lbs. Had a bit of a panick attack at first. It took my breath away and I thought I would pass out. But 5 minutes later I was feeling ok. It's not comfortable bit not painful either. Just mostly annoying. The same for the massage afterwards. I was able to work and function just fine the rest of the day.
Day 2 - no major symptoms. A little numb but not much. No bruising but tender to the touch and a bit swollen.

I'm a little over 5 weeks out. I just had a second treatment on the same area done about a week ago. I am still a bit swollen and you can't see any results yet but I am hoping in another few weeks you will.

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your journey with us!

Did you always plan on having 2 treatments on the same area? I can definitely see subtle chnages in your before/after photos. Hopefully with time and healing, more results will come through.

Please do keep us updated with your progress!

I did always plan on two treatments for the one area. They felt that was how I would get the best results. They recommended the second treatment be a month after the first. I am really starting to see the difference in my clothes

That's good to know. Most reviews I've read, they have only had one session. It's good that you were told going in that more than one session would give you the best results. That way you get to make an informed decision and aren't dissappointed after the first session if you don't see the final changes!

I'll definitely be keeping up with your progress!

Hi there, I was also told two session would be best, so I had first one this past Monday and the next scheduled for 6/10. I'm hoping it works out. I'm only 5 days post first session and swollen still but I'm still hopeful :-)
