I am 40 years old, and I have had 5 children, 4 of which were by cesarean. I have been able to maintain my weight with diet and exercise (not my ideal weight either) and even tone up my arms and legs but my stomach never changed. Minimal weight loss also left me with a skinnier face and an extra turkey chin. This led me to look into cool sculpting to help rid of the excess fat while I continue the journey of what diet and exercise mean in the context of aging.
With a little research online and complete trust, I did my first treatment in Tucson Arizona. It was ok (or so I thought) and I did see some volume reduction after approximately 6 weeks. I had no idea an aspect of personal artistry was involved until I went to Susan and Dr. Stanley Kent Brown at Sensational Skin in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Susan began by making me comfortable. When we seek out help with our bodies we are already in a state of vulnerability and Susan was very kind. I undressed and got cozy in a soft robe and disposable undergarments. Susan took pictures of various angles of my body from head toe. During the consultation and before the procedures we talked about me. My life, my current lifestyle, and the bigger picture. Susan made me feel like an individual and she took everything into consideration before treating me. The bigger picture is how cool sculpting ultimately helps us on this journey but is not the end all be all. These can be hard conversations to have, and Susan was very genuine.
The facility is pristine with everything you need. Various forms of art and murals decorate the walls and even the lighting is thoughtful. Each room has a television with streaming options. Susan was meticulous with my treatment all while making sure I was comfortable. They do not let you experience pain here. There is a doctor on sight which made me very comfortable knowing that if I needed anything medical advice and treatment was available. I received immediate attention at the slightest amount of pain. (Being frozen can kind of hurt) I received my treatments on Friday afternoon and had dinner plans after. They left me in such good condition that I was able to freshen up and get ready for my dinner date. This is the definition of no down time.
I have also received after care supplies and instruction. Again, they do not want you to be in pain here and they make sure you are not. If you are thinking about getting cool sculpting and receiving treatment that is anything less than what I have explained above, you’re not going to the right place.
