Bodify

So, if you know me, you know that I definitely don’t love to work out, but I make it a priority in my life. I focus on creating a lifestyle for optimal health and also for confidence. In spite of my work out and diet I had some stubborn fatty areas on my abdomen. That’s why I decided to try coolsculpting at Bodify.

What is coolsculpting? 

Coolsculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses cooling to eliminate areas of fat 

Why did I choose Bodify? 

I chose Bodify because of their experience. They have provided more coolsculpting treatments than any other provider in Arizona. Bodify also holds a “Beautiful Results Promise” so that you are guaranteed to be happy with your results after the process is complete.

How was the experience? 

The consultation was easy, they listened to my concerns, and gave me their best options. For the next step, I returned for the cool sculpting treatment. Their office is comfortable and cozy, each room having a TV (with Netlfix), blankets, robes, and decorated to the nines. I sat down in the procedure chair and the staff thoroughly explained the process to me and what to expect before and after this procedure. The actual coolsculpting process was somewhat uncomfortable but not overall painful. I would describe it as a vacuum pressure with ice cubes until It eventually gets numb. Once the procedure is complete the wand was removed and the area was then massaged for 2 minutes. And by massage, I do not mean a “go to your happy place” massage. This part of the coolsculpting process was the most uncomfortable but at least short lasted!

How are your results? 

Here are my 16 week post coolsculpting results! I love them! I definitely notice a big change even with small fluctuating weight gain (it no longer goes to my abdominal region like previously). I would recommend Bodify over and over again.

Annie Bruno and Hellobabybums

I had the pleasure of meeting Aesthetics Nurse Injector, Annie Bruno  at Dr Todd Hobgood’s Facial Plastic Surgery Office.

Voluma

What is it? Voluma is a gel and is used for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss and can also be used in the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).

If your anything like me, the first place I loose weight is in my face and the first place I gain weight is in my abdomen. I’ve been working out a lot recently and my face was looking rather gaunt. I started noticing smile lines and the area under my eyes seemed so sunken in.

Annie recommended 2 cc (1 cc= 1/5 teaspoon) of Voluma and 1cc of volbella to nasolabial folds. A little bit goes a long way.

Prior to the injection, Annie placed “numbing cream” on my face and the pain was so minimal.

My favorite part about the Voluma? The immediate results of it. You can see a difference right away. The following pictures are before and after (within minutes of each other).

People that say “they look overdone” typically have been treated with way too much filler or had a bad placement by an injector. Which is why I would choose and highly recommend Annie Bruno over any other Botox injector.

Thank you Annie for making this first time experience, the BEST!

Botox

I’ll admit, before I ever received botox I was nervous to even do it. Firstly, because of the stigma surrounding it, but mostly because I was uneducated about what it really IS and what it really does. I didn’t want to walk out having an obvious change. So after doing some research on botox, I realized just exactly what it was. Botox is derived form a protein and temporarily relaxes targeted muscle areas by blocking nerve impulses that trigger contactions (like a frown). Local injection reduce wrinkles from anywhere between 3-6 months.

I started to notice some wrinkle lines in my forehead and also a frown line between my eyes above my nose. I am blaming it on being nearsighted and squinting more frequently than not.

And for those of you who are worried or timid of the pain from an injection….If any of you have toddlers and have ever had a hot wheel to the forehead than trust me, you’ve experienced more pain than a botox injection. It’s like being pinched and very tolerable.

Results:

I would do it over and over again. My favorite thing about botox is not only the results but also the prevention. Since doing botox for the first time I have noticed such a significant improvement in my skin and my fine lines. My fine lines in my forehead have completely disappeared and my “frown line” is now my casper line. GONE.
