Cool Sculpting Experience at CosmetiCare

So excited to share my experience with Cool Sculpting at CosmetiCare with you all today. CosmetiCare is a plastic surgery and MedSpa center based in Newport Beach, California that offers a range of surgical and non-surgical treatments. After contemplating trying Cool Sculpting for over a year due to mixed reviews from friends, I decided to finally give it a go.

I've been super insecure about my thick legs and bottom half  since I was a teenager and have often thought about liposuction. I'll be honest though, surgery is not for me! That's why I was excited when I first heard about this non-invasive treatment that could help freeze the fat on my legs, thighs, butt and banana rolls.

Keep on reading below to find out more about the treatment, procedure and my experience.

What is Cool Sculpting Treatment?

An innovative, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling and pressure to eliminate stubborn fat and contour your body that will not shrink through diet and exercise alone. No general/topical anesthesia or pain medication is needed and there's no down time. You can resume normal exercise and activity immediately! You will start to notice results gradually over 2-4 months following the treatment and guarantees that it will remove 20-40% of the fat from the treatment area.

What was the Cool Sculpting Procedure like?

The procedure was very quick and easy! I'm not going to lie, I was extremely nervous on the thought that I was about to be very cold and possibly in pain. My nervousness quickly dissolved during my consultation when I met Rosie Moore, the Cool Sculpting Specialist at CosmetiCare. She was very sweet, attentive and answered all my questions perfectly which eased my anxiety. Rosie first had to check that I was a good candidate for this procedure by examining my entire body. Obviously, this treatment isn't going to be for everyone! After touching my legs, she said my banana rolls and inner thighs were the perfect candidate (which I already knew they would be =) ) She then took my measurements, weight and a "before "picture of my body so we can see results down the road. On a normal basis after consultation, you'd go back for your first treatment but Rosie was kind enough to squeeze me in same day as I live very far from CosmetiCare. Here are a few tips they want you to know about how to prepare for treatment day:

1. Stop any medications that may thin your blood as bruising in treatment area is possible
2. Wear comfortable, loose clothes
3. Eat a light meal
4. Bring entertainment such as iPads, reading materials etc as treatments will vary from one to five hours.

There are two types of applicators (vacuum assisted and flat applicators) which may be used during your session. Rosie used the more common one on me, the vacuum assisted applicator that uses suction to draw the fat into the device. She placed one on each banana roll below my butt and explained the process thoroughly before starting so that I was comfortable and knew what to expect. The sensations felt like a deep, cold pulling and pinching but subsided over the short 35 minute treatment time. I actually fell asleep I was so comfortable! After removing the applicator, Rosie massaged my treatment area which felt slightly sore and bruised. I noticed how red the area was but after a few hours, all these sensations went away and the red subsided. I drove home as if nothing had happened.

What was your experience like at CosmetiCare with the Cool Sculpting Treatment?

I had an overall amazing, comfortable, painless experience with Cool Sculpting at CosmetiCare. I want to thank the friendly staff, Samer and Rosie for inviting me to share this opportunity. I'll be going back in 12 weeks for one more treatment and can't wait to share more results with you all then. Hopefully I will notice a difference in just a few weeks!

We're also offering my readers 10% off your first treatment HERE using code: Melanee10. The starting cost is $750 for one cycle however, they do offer packages with lower rates depending on how many packages you need and buy. Definitely take advantage of this opportunity if you can as you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by!

Clarins SOS Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Clarins. The opinions and text are all mine.

My skin goes through a dry, dull spell every winter and all I can say is that it needs some major help in the hydration department. Today I’m sharing Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum that is my new go-to daily skincare obsession helping my skin become hydrated and radiant again.

The Product:

Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum helps those concerned with dehydrated, dry, dull skin. The two key ingredients consist of the “Leaf of Life” (Kalanchoe Pinnata) that naturally encourages more hydrated skin along with Beautyberry which acts as an anti-inflammatory. The serum enriches the skin from the inside out and helps your normal skincare work more effectively in the long run by penetrating beyond skin's surface. 

The Process:

I use the serum every morning and evening after thoroughly cleansing my skin followed by a facial moisturizer to make sure my skin is taking full advantage of the benefits. Serums penetrate deep into your skin, while moisturizer sits closer to the surface to protect against environmental aggressors. When used together, they protect and nourish your skin at every layer for a more effective skincare routine. I apply a small amount into the palm of my hand then warm between my hands before gently pressing into my skin on my face and neck.

The results:

Radiant, hydrated and glowing skin! My experience with Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum has been nothing short of amazing. From the moment I opened the product and felt the gentle serum on my skin, I was in heaven. After just a few tries, I noticed how plump, revived and moisturized my skin felt. For best results, the serum must be used consistently morning and evening for 28 days. The more you stick with it, the more you’ll notice the improvements.
I'm finally feeling brave enough to leave the house without makeup on with my improved radiant skin thanks to Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum. Whether you’re looking to minimize pores, diminish dark spots, defeat fine lines or reclaim your glow like me, it’s time to make serum a staple in your skincare routine.
