Nearly 60 and the Belly Fat Needs to Go - Houston, TX

So last year I did Cool Sculpting with little obvious results. Having said that I have a pretty good amount of belly fat and maybe the loss just wasn't obvious. I'm not a great candidate for lipo because of some health issues so I decided to give Vanquish a try. So my thoughts after two treatments:
-it is not painless! I have some 20 year old scars from an abdominal lap and one of those areas burns like there is no tomorrow and I've had to stop during the treatment several times just to catch a break from sensation
-i thought I was well hydrated but I needed to do more and the tech says being poorly hydrated can contribute to the pain during the treatment
-I've developed these hard painful lumps in my upper abdomen (the only area I'm treating) which they say are clusters of dead fat cells. I've been told these always go away and I've been massaging them, but again, not painless
-Lastly, it is working!! We haven't done new measurements yet but I can tell you it is working. My guess at this point is about 1 1/2 inches off my waist

I'll update when I finish in a couple of weeks.

3 down 1 to go

So I've completed 3 of the 4 sessions, first two had some real issue with pain in an area where I had a small scar from a surgery 20 years ago. This last time, a lot better, stinging but did not have to stop went the whole 45 minutes without stopping. I am seeing real results and am pretty excited. I'll update one more time after the last session to let you know what the tape measure has to say.

Finished my series of 4

Well I must say I am disappointed, just barely over an inch gone along with $2,400 of my money. The simple answer, diet an exercise. If there was a holy grail we'd all know it by now.

no change

Well it's been a few weeks now since I finished the treatment and the lumps and soreness are gone thankfully but that it is, still less than an inch gone off my waist. Sorry ladies this didn't work for me.
