3 months ago I was invited to try the CoolSculpting beauty procedure at the highly-regarded Dr Haus Dermatology clinic in Harley Street, London. I blogged about my experience and promised an update so you could see how I got on and if the process actually worked…
I’m thrilled to report that it did and here are the “before” and “after” pics of my upper arms to prove it!
A lot of women, including me, struggle with stubborn fat on their upper arms that no amount of tricep dips will shift, and I’m delighted to see such a difference after the 3 months that it takes for the procedure to take full effect. CoolSculpting promises a reduction of up to 30% in fat on the areas treated. You can see that the treatment has lived up to its promise.
I also had the VelaShape procedure on my thighs, the aim of which is to reduce cellulite, giving the treated area a smoother and firmer appearance. I noticed my thighs looked and felt more toned and smooth after just one session, even though Dr Haus advised me that it would take at least 3 to 5 sessions before I’d see the full effect.
Not long after, I headed off to Mallorca for a beach holiday, safe in the knowledge that with my CoolSculpted arms and VelaShaped legs, I could hit the beach with confidence, and wear my swimwear and sleeveless dresses without hesitation. Check out the results here in this pic of me relaxing on a boat trip with my husband on the eve of our 11th wedding anniversary.
I’d definitely recommend both CoolSculpting and VelaShape to anyone that wants to have more toned looking upper arms as well as thighs. And the really good news is that Dr Haus has kindly provided some exclusive discounts across a number of treatments, not just CoolSculpting and VelaShape, see below. In fact one of my brides on my recent (working) holiday in Mallorca took up one of the offers below, which included CoolSculpting, and told me that she was delighted with the results for her wedding day.
So take advantage of them and get that sculpted, firm body so you feel even more fabulous in your wedding dress on your big day and afterwards on your honeymoon.
