I got my first Venus Freeze Treatment on my love...
I got my first Venus Freeze Treatment on my love handles. The procedure took 15 mins on each side, which was pretty intense because of heat. The new Venus Freeze machine combines heat and suction. The suction wasn't bad however the heat is serious. She told me it would get hot but I seriously under-estimated how hot smh... My left side is way more sensitive than my right. Probably because the skin on the left is looser. After the procedure I was a bit sore for about 1 full day but there was no bruising.
For this area which included both sides was a total of $150.00
Insurance doesn't cover this but I was able to pay for it on my HealthCare Flex Spending.
2nd Venus Freeze Treatment ~ 4/2/2015
I went in for my second Venus Freeze Treatment on my love handles. Again the procedure was 15 mins on each side. Before I went for the treatment today, I took a pain reliever. I thought it would help with the pain but nope. I still cant believe how hot the machine gets. I have a high pain tolerence but I feel like they should provide a topical numbing cream or something to reduce the sensitivity to the heat. This would ensure that the patient gets the therapeutic levels recommended which is roughly 42-44degress celsius. After the procedure I was sore for a couple hours. There was no bruising after this treatment.
I have noticed that my stretch-marks have have become smaller, which is confirmation that the treatments are working because the skin is becoming tigher. The stretch-marks are also lighter in complexion. I am happy with the 2 treatments on my love handles on my right side. My left side seems to have looser skin which might require a seperate treatment soley to that one side. I will more than likely have the next treatment on my abdomen.
3rd Venus Freeze Treatment ~ 4/8/2015
Today I went in for my 3rd Venus Freeze Treatment. Nina was extremely happy with the results from the 2 treatments on my love handles. I told her that I was happy with the tightness of the skin and that I would like to move the treatment to my abdomen. For this area the procedure was 25 mins. I noticed that my abdomen could tolerate that heat better compared to the treatment on my sides. I didn't have to ask Nina to turn the machine down either. Nina was kind enough to throw in my sides periodically as well. After the procedure I was red & swollen but didnt experience any brusing. The soreness wore off after a couple of hours.
For this area there was a total of $130.00
If I look sightly bigger in the pics its because I'm bloated *sad period face*
