I had been seeing this on tv so i went in for a consultation - was surprised that i could do it that day. I did my belly and love handles. I was given a muscle relaxant beforehand, pain meds are available if you have someone to drive you home (I'd recommend that). At first it wasn't too bad, but it all builds up. And i think you just get tired of the heat and bearing through it.
Doing the belly is a bigger area (8-10 sections), so it takes the longest. The pain comes and goes in waves for some seconds there's nothing, then there is a whopper for a few seconds. The staff was great and would cheerlead for me. Don't let anyone fool you - it hurts, go for the pain meds. For me, i was most uncomfortable with the belly as I got hot allover and was seating. The staff provided ice packs whcih helped.
After the procedure i'm really bruised up and swollen in the belly area. This shoulddn't last past two weeks. The clinic said that people were seeing noticiable results in as few as three or four weeks. I'll be waiting! As an FYI - I did three passes (20 seconds each pass) on each section at 60.
