If you have been following my Bridal Beauty Plan blog series so far, you will have seen that whilst I have made a start on many of my skin quality treatments, I am yet to make headway on my body sculpting treatments.
After my blood test at the beginning of my Bridal Beauty Plan, I have been working really hard on improving my diet and exercise. Like many brides-to-be, I purchased my dress a little smaller than my size to help keep me motivated.
Melissa recommended that I had a course of Vanquish treatments to help de-bulk my stomach. I have had Vanquish previously before my friend’s wedding and saw a reduction of around 1.5 inches, but I knew the result could have been better if I had put more thought into how I ate and my exercise routine.
Now that I have a good diet and exercise place, I was very excited to see how Vanquish could help me. We took some measurements of my waist so we can keep a track of my progress.
The treatment itself is completed non-invasive: you lie under a large panel which uses radiofrequency energy to heat up the fat cells. This causes the cells to die and be naturally removed over the coming months. Remember to drink lots of water to help flush these dead cells out of the body post-treatment.
As you can expect, the treatment itself is warming (a welcome break form my chilly office!). It feels a bit like lying under an electric blanket or sunbathing and Melissa assured me that if I started to feel the slightest bit uncomfortable she could adjust the settings for me.
I relaxed with Netflix and let the machine work its magic.
A couple of days later I measured my abdomen and noticed I had lost an inch and a half already! Very encouraging. I have another session this week – cannot wait to see the end result.
