Last year, I shared how exciting it was that Vietura was partnering with me and my blog to offer my readers a more in depth view into the non-invasive treatments that they specialize in.
After writing that first blog post, I’ll admit that I haven’t been able to visit as frequently as I would have liked, but I’m finally back on track to taking better care of myself. There were quite a few months that got away from me. From the round up and busy days before and after holidays, it seemed like I just could not get a handle on managing my time and getting things straight for myself.
This new found commitment to taking better care of myself, came on the heels of a hellish weekend that was chock full of activities. After being terribly sick just before writing this, and having that particular Saturday where our family of six needed to be in 5 different places at once, we rounded it off with a ton more activities all to take place on a Sunday as well. After that weekend, I knew that I wanted that particular Monday to be kicked off with better self care.
So I arranged for some quiet time in the Vietura treatment rooms.
Originally, I had planned for a PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment to kick off my new found self care routine, but after meeting with Doc Paolo, he suggested I try something a little less invasive. I was still on antibiotics from the bacterial strep the week before, so, he asked if I was ready to start my Ultralipo treatment instead.
Ultralipo at Vietura is simple, painless, and easy. I had heard about my friend, Jackie‘s experience with Ultralipo and was super curious as to whether I would experience the same kind of amazing results.
The Ultralipo machine is unassuming and has a wand that the technician rubs across your belly. (Very similar to an ultrasound when you are pregnant) When the technician goes back and forth over the areas of concern, you hear this really high pitched ringing sound. ( I heard it the entire time she was using the wand.)
This high pitched ringing sound is using the ultrasound technology to break up fat deposits. From what I learned, your body will then naturally excrete the broken down fat out when you relieve yourself after the treatment.This process of ridding your body of the fat that was broken down can take place up to one week after your treatment.
To be honest, I was a bit skeptical as to whether or not I would see a big difference, physically…BUT I totally did. For days, I kept looking at myself in the mirror to find a flatter tummy.
Truth is, I have been a little self conscious in the past years of my lack of stomach muscles. It doesn’t affect me all the time, but it does bother me when I have to put on a form fitting dress or top. I know it shouldn’t bother me because the extra skin, stretch marks, and loosey goosey stomach means I was blessed with the ability to carry four beautiful miracles.
Trying out this treatment, coupled with eating in moderation, and getting back on the mat will definitely have me feeling better about myself and the upcoming summer months.
The only regret I have for this treatment, is not measuring my waist line for before and after proof. I know my friend Jackie did to show the proven results of her first treatment. I will remember to do this the next time I undergo this procedure, simply because the proof is in the pudding.
Now, that we are starting a new year, I have an even newer sense of commitment to bringing my “sexy back.” Nino has lost quite a bit of weight, and I feel as if I have to play catch up to his new found interest in a healthier lifestyle. (Plus, I want to spend some time with him in the gym.) Plus…as they say now “Strong is the new Sexy.”
So, I will be back to Vietura to enjoy the benefits of many of their non invasive treatments for both health and beauty, and I will couple these treatments with watching what I eat, (no more dessert after every meal) and finding my way back on the mat at Evolve Yoga and Fitness. Wish me luck.
I think I can…I think I can…I think I can…I think I can…
