I went in for a consult on Dec 2, 2010. I am 5-10lbs within my target weight, but I've always had a muffin top and love handles. After chatting, I decided to go forward with treatment. There was an immediate opening, so I had my lower abs treated with the small hand piece (large one was too big for me). The treatment felt crowded, but not painful. I read and listened to my ipod. I was given some pillows to prop under my knees which made me more comfortable.
I'm not terribly squeamish, but I was a little freaked out to see the pomegranite-red lump the size of a large stick of butter when they pulled off the device. After a minute or two of massage, it was just a numb pink spot. Within an hour you couldn't see anything.
On day 3 & 4 I still feel numbness at the treatment site. I'm also feeling a little tenderness and some intermittent prickling, tingling, and itchiness. The itchiness cannot be relieved because of the numbness! I spoke to the dermatologist's office, and they told me this is normal. I'm a little bothered by it, but it isn't terribly painful.
