The hype is real, guys. I have to add this little spoiler alert because this treatment is exciting and completely life changing.
A few months back, I was introduced to laser fat removal. It was a demo at a medical spa and it just didn’t sit well with me. First of all, I’m a little old school when it comes to weight loss. Second, the person that was used in the demo wasn’t in the best shape. Not exactly the body I aspired to have. Third, the cost. While it is affordable in a lot of spas, I just couldn’t imagine throwing a nice chunk of change on something that simply didn’t work.
While I was at Art Basel, The Sculpting Goddess (known as Miami’s Body Contour Specialist) reached out to me. Not going to lie, when I read her email, I was disappointed because I didn’t want to sit through another demo. She offered any service but was adamant about the Body Sculpting treatment. After checking out her website and instagram, the Before & After results left me intrigued and I had to check it out for myself.
As soon as I walked into the wellness center, I was greeted by Martine. After I signed some papers, I was whisked away into the sculpting room. She asked me what areas I wanted to target that day and I said my stomach/love handles. Keep in mind, I’m at a healthy weight range but I am 32 years old. Even though I’m in shape, I still have problem areas. Bikinis are a major part of my life, whether it’s work or play. Who doesn’t want to feel or look their best?
What exactly is Body Contouring?
Body Contouring transmits ultrasonic waves into the fat layer of the skin, stimulating lipolysis of fat cells. These fats are then expelled from the body naturally through urine and bowel movement. Removing fats in the body results in inches loss at the treated area. Recommended sessions for results are 8-12 sessions. Twice a week with proper diet and exercise.
After I changed into a disposable bra, the contouring treatment began. Martine was is very friendly. We talked about other FDA approved beauty treatments (which I’m excited to look into!), travel and growing up in South FL. As we talked, she massaged my stomach/love handle area with a device that reminded me of a sonogram machine. It felt warm, which made it feel relaxing. I’m all about a warm massage! Not only is this known for melting away fat, but it also tightens the skin, which most of us want. The treatment lasted for an hour, very simple.
I went about my life, there isn’t any down time. Here’s what convinced me, the next day, my stomach felt so tight. It was also sore but a good sore. As if I had a great ab work out sore. I couldn’t believe how good I felt and it was only one treatment! This was something I had to tell all my girl friends. I even tweeted a joke about not ever going to work out anymore, that I’ll just stick to body contouring. But clearly, visible results after one treatment will not happen.
The bummer is, I haven’t been in South Florida since. I’ll be back soon, but it was the holidays and I’ve been in Philadelphia. Body Contouring is real. This is a service that I will commit to in 2018. I’m so happy The Sculpting Goddess reached out and convinced me!!
