Hi-I don't work in Houston or have any affiliation with any practices in Houston but I do own Lipo Ex and know the protocol inside and out. The protocol is for 2 sets of 4 treatments. Your only half way there :) The majority of my clients have lost 3 inches in circumference in one measurement after 8 treatments. And many have lost 10 lbs of weight. Keep it up! I've used it myself and have lost 2 inches on three ab measurements, 4 inches on my hips and 3 inches circumference on each thigh.
