So, after hearing about sculpsure a few days ago I decided to have the procedure done today!
We started by taking my measurements incl height and weight and lots of photos!
We discussed what I want to target in this treatment and the arrangement of the pads to achieve the best result. We decided to put all 4 along the bottom of my tummy.
I was then strapped in and laid down on a comfy recliner type chair.
First there was a cool air followed by a warm sensation where Bianca said it will gradually get hotter, the heat settings start at 0.9 and go up in increments of 0.5 up to 1.4 - obviously the hotter you go the better results. It is hot air for around 30-40 seconds then cool air for a period of time, I feel like its shorter than the heat though?
It was comfortable for the first 5 minutes as it was gradually increasing heat but when it was put up to 1.3 it felt like a boiling hot water bottle being held directly onto my skin it was quite unpleasant I felt like I was getting a bit light headed from it but not enough to mention to the tech (could of been that I had only eaten once that day and treatment was at 3:30pm) She then took it down a level to 1.2 and I couldn't even feel anything for a few minutes it was then increased to 1.3 which was still fine she then put it on the max setting for the remainder of the time and there was no pain, I think my body got used to it.
I was told to massage twice a day for 5-10 minutes otherwise there may be nodules in the skin, to keep hydrated and active.
Post treatment I felt where one of the pads were felt like sunburn but was gone within 1-2 hours, I'm 10 hours post treatment now and have no side effects at all! No soreness, no tenderness, no tight skin.
All in all the actual procedure was quite pleasant, at no point did I ever consider stopping.
Obviously as my treatment was today I won't see any results until 6 weeks and optimal ones at 12 weeks, I will keep everyone updated!
