Let me start with the good news: when you leave after this treatment, you see an immediate difference. You can choose to have your inner thighs, arms (you know, the jiggly part that you need to do 400 daily push-ups to get rid of?), or your tummy. I had my inner thighs done and the technician told me to go home and put on my skinny jeans so I could see how fab I looked. The weather was 35 degrees at the time, so I didn’t follow her advice (as if!), but I will say, I noticed that my thighs felt tighter and looked better overall.
Now for the bad news: remember when I said, “no pain, no gain?” Um, yeah. This is not for wimps. “Trust us, you won’t get burned,” the tech told me before she began, which really isn’t a sentence that puts you at ease.
Okay, I thought. At first, it’s not that bad. I kept thinking, “Wow, women who complain about this must be such babies.” But then she kept going. And going. And going. Each side takes 30 minutes to complete, and I am not joking when I say it felt like a hot coal had come in contact with my skin sometimes. Which is why I didn’t continue and have my arms done. This time. But I may just have to go back because seeing immediate results – that are said to last a year or so – is something this girl will suffer for.
