Upper Abdomen SculpSure Body Contouring Treatment at LaserXX – Review
Hey bunnies! Recently I told you about the SculpSure body contouring treatments I’ve been doing at LaserXX in preparation for my wedding (t-minus two months to go!). I had my second treatment today, and I wanted to give you an update.
The first time, I had my lower abdomen (AKA my lower belly roll – right above my belly button) treated. Today I had my upper abdomen (happy little roll number two) treated. I’ve lost 3 or 4 pounds since my first treatment (and it’s been about two weeks). I haven’t changed anything in terms of diet or exercise during that time. I have one hard nodule on my right side – if you press your fingers into my belly you can feel it, but you can’t see it or anything. The LaserXX team told me that was normal, and that it’s not permanent, and to keep drinking lots of water and massaging twice a day.
Sandra and the rest of the staff, and Dr. Berdjis, are so nice and made me feel so welcome. They put three brackets on me this time – two on the lower area of my upper midsection and one under that (right under my rib cage). The treatment seemed more painful this time, in this area. I’m not sure if it’s just a more sensitive part of my body or if it has to do with how much fat is in each area (pretty sure I have a lot in both places but hey…). I did have an energy drink in the morning (had to get up early to go to a Bite Beauty Lip Lab event, which I highly recommend by the way!), so I may have been dehydrated. I asked the doc to give me a break about half way through. Then he turned it down a bit for the remainder of the 25 minutes. He reminded me that I’m always in control and can tell him if I need it turned up or down (or paused) at any time. The doctor and his staff stayed with me the whole time to make sure I was okay.
Afterwards, they showed me some VERY impressive before and afters from previous clients. I was impressed with the results some patients saw after one treatment alone. It will take several weeks to see some results and about three months total for me to REALLY see results, so I will keep you updated on my progress as I go!
After the treatment, they gave me a Dexa Scan, which is the gold standard for measuring body fat, lean muscle and bone density. I had never had one of these done before, so it was interesting to see the results (and hopefully to see how they will change over time). My bone density is really good, but my fat to muscle ratios are not great. I’m going to keep working out and eating right, while I do these SculpSure body contouring treatments and I hope to see some changes in the near future!
If you want to try SculpSure body contouring, I highly recommend LaserXX. Pricing is about $400 for each bracket (or $1600 for all four). It’s not a cheap procedure, but it’s A LOT cheaper and safer than liposuction! LaserXX often runs specials – so make sure to follow them on Instagram and Facebook!
