I researched my options and first considered CoolSculpting but read review after review of less than satisfied customers who time and again talked about the excruciating pain 7 days after treatment. Having had 2 serious surgeries in the last 9 months, I was not interested in anything that induced that much pain. That’s when I read about SculpSure. The process takes less than half the time with little to no pain or side effects related to the treatment. I went to Dr. Chris Pate at BioSymmetry in Wilmington, NC where I met with Deb, the nurse technician, who educated me on the science behind the treatment and the process involved. I made an appointment for that very day!
Deb and I determined that we would take an aggressive approach attacking four areas that day; upper abs, lower abs, flanks, & bra line. The treatment took 25 minutes for each area and while painful at times (used the second to highest setting), it was not unbearable. I left able to continue on with my day with little discomfort but took an ibuprophen to reduce any inflammation and drank lots of water. To be honest, I did experience some bruising and swelling after a few days and was a bit sore but nothing that ibuprophen couldn’t alleviate. After 2-3 weeks I began to notice a difference and continued to notice a difference as the weeks went by. Yesterday I went back to Dr. Pate’s office and met with Deb for my 12 week “reveal.” I am thrilled to report that I have lost 4 inches around my midsection, dropped 4lbs, and am back into a size 8! I have never felt better about myself and my body image! The difference that this treatment made was honestly life changing! I can confidently and proudly walk down a street and know that I’ve turned a head or two and at 52, that feels really good!
Thanks everyone at BioSymmetry! It was the best thing that I have ever done for myself !
