It Comes Back

I had fat bulges that exercise and eating healthy could not remove; even cancer could not get rid of them. I am a health nut, exercise, eat right, etc., and I am a 66 year old cancer survivor, but I still want to look as good as I can for my age. Conventional lipo involves drugs and I did not want to take that chance with my health so I chose Zeltiq. Not only did I experience reduction in those bulges, I actually firmed up in those areas, and the benefits extended to adjacent areas surrounding the actual treatment area. I am very happy with my results, I saved a thousand dollars over Smart Lipo, and I did not have to risk side effects. A win win treatment plan. Love it.

Hey Stephanie,
How did your consultation go? I am seeing results. I'm pretty happy with them. I've had 2 lower ab treatments and one on each love handle. I have a few months to wait and then I'll let you know.

Unfortunately the dermatologizt I went to said that my skin was too lax and he didn't feel like I would have good results from Zeltiq. I am glad that he didn't just take my money but I'm very not sure about his evaluation. We never actually discussed my expectations and my understanding from reading on here is that lax skin and adipose tissue (fat) are totally different subjects. The dr told me my only solution would be a tummy tuck =(
Not seeing anything noticeable yet. It is supposed to take 6 to 12 weeks to see the results and I am 3 weeks post procedure. I have multiple treatments scheduled and will do multiple areas. Ping me again in 3 more weeks....

Cool Sculpting worked great on me. I saw a lot of improvement. The large protruding "belly bulge" on my upper abdomen had a pronounced reduction. But a mere few months after ending the treatments, it came back. Now I am doing it the right way - going to the gym and using exercise machines that have also helped my balance issues after radiation therapy on my head for cancer. So there are real benefits to exercise that cannot be obtained artificially.

My latest review (after a few months of treatment)...

My latest review (after a few months of treatment) was merged in with my previous review (immediately after treatment) so the title It's Baaaack and the thumbs down I gave it was lumped in with my previous glowing report. Read to the end for my current opinion of Cool Sculpting.

The staff is excellent, especially Donna and Raquel. The office has an interest free payment plan if you need it so anyone can have treatments. Donna went beyond the treatment I was there for and suggested I use a 70% sunscreen where radiation damage on my head and neck was being irritated by the sun. It worked; no more big red embarrassing blotch, and I had tried everything. They are very helpful there and listen to what results their clients want.
