I first went in for a consultation with Vicki, I asked all of the questions I wanted, I never felt pushed or pressured....on the contrary.....I was offered a "test patch" to prove that the treatment would work for me. I didn't have the test patch because Vicki seemed so confident in a no pressure sort of way. I had been to other clinics and I felt that they wanted to "close the deal" but Vicki was more of a....we know this works....I can give you a test patch and prove it to you....you don't have to decide now....you can think about it and call me..... I will still be here in a months time......we will do this on your time scale.... So on the basis of what we had read in the Daily Mail and other publications we both decided to go ahead.
The treatment is not comfortable, but it's quick and no worse than getting a tattoo and people do THAT every day and not complain about the pain!
Four weeks later I had my after treatment check up, with Lorena herself! (she invented the treatment)....She pulled out her phone, took photos on it, then put the photos side by side to compare and we all squealed with excitement! No photoshop! I was right there! I saw her take the photos and put them side by side! She says she does this in front of the client to prove that no photo shop is used ever! She also pointed out to the very unprofessional photos of before and after on her website. She explained that she takes the photos on her phone and uses those, because she wants her photos to tell the real story which professional photos never do. She always uses the hashtag #nophotoshop on her instagram. By this time this didn't matter because we had both had results that could clearly be seen.
You can still see the stretch marks but they are greatly reduced and we weren't looking for perfection. We were told we would should see an improvement and we did, ....both of us...so we know it wasn't a fluke. It's important to mention that Vicki never gave us a 100% guarantee....she said she couldn't because there has been the odd person that this hasn't worked for. She said that they offer a test patch for this reason, which I thought was fair enough.
I was told that if I wanted another treatment that I would need to wait six months as it continues to improve over that time. To be honest, I have had a really good improvement and I have no need to have another treatment. Lorena said that it was never about my stretch marks but how I felt about them. She's right, they no longer bother me although they're not 100% gone.
I'm very happy with the results so I wont be going back....other than to say hello. I loved that these people are clearly driven by results and not money.
