I wear false eyelashes everyday.
I did microblading earlier this year.
I tried Botox and I liked it.
I think these are taboo topics that women aren’t supposed to talk about, but there you have it. I said it. I am not embarrassed or ashamed to admit I do these things, because I didn’t do it to please anyone but myself. I believe that one can feel confident and beautiful au natural, or also get a little help to get there. Women put on makeup every day, and to me, these other things are just another step in the beauty game. And there ain’t no shame in the game.
At a private event hosted by SOLUX Med Spa in Chicago, I recently learned about an innovative treatment called CoolSculpting. This is a procedure that is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. Freeze away fat? Are you intrigued to know more? I was skeptical, but interested. Okay, really interested, my ears perked right up and so did my right hand, because I raised it to volunteer to be a model to receive a free CoolSculpting live demonstration.
CoolSculpting basically boils down to science (excuse the pun, see what I did?). But really, the technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to effectively target the fat cells. Once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Hasta la vista, baby! You can read more about CoolSculpting here.
The first-time results were so promising that I agreed to a second CoolSculpting session in partnership with SOLUX Med Spa; this time to demonstrate at a CoolSculpting event open to the public.
My personal experience with CoolSculpting was that the procedure during the first session was a little uncomfortable when the machine was placed on me. I felt pressure and intense cold for a few minutes but then it disappeared. At the second session, the suction didn’t feel as strong. I dealt with Shamaila from SOLUX a lot while scheduling session, and she was a total DOLL. She educated me on the procedure in advance so I didn’t have one ounce of hesitation. I love that the CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so I was able to resume regular monkey-wrangling activities as planned right afterwards. By monkeys, I mean my three boys. And bonus points for the private CoolSculpting suite – which is totally gorgeous and flooded with natural lighting everywhere, giving a spa-like environment that is designed to enhance the experience, so that patients can read a book, work from their laptop, or even take a nap. Which you KNOW I did, since I was sans kids!
I actually see a difference, like promised. I still have some pudge, but not like before! Before and After photos are presented with each session. My first session was in April and my second was in July. It’s been exactly 1 month since the last treatment. SOLUX says you may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. This was totally spot on for me. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment – and I’m excited to see more results over the next couple months without having to do any work 😉
After my second CoolSculpting session with SOLUX Med Spa, I’m definitely a believer. This procedure was so worth it. If you’re local in Chicago, you can contact SOLUX for a free consultation to see if it’s right for you. You won’t be sorry!
