Being a new mom has been one of the greatest things I’ve been able to experience, but with that, getting my pre-pregnancy body back has been a challenge. I’ve always had a pretty flat stomach, but with all that skin stretching over the course of 9 months, it’s definitely not as tight and toned as it used to be. I feel like I’ve got a mommy tummy and got some loose skin on my lower abdomen. I do watch what I eat and workout for a healthy lifestyle, but my tummy just won’t go back to normal.(As you can see, I even still have my linea nigra and a big scar from my curling iron- never curl your hair topless. Ha!) I wanted to do something that was safe, painless and no downtime as I’m a stay-at-home mom that I could resume our daily routine.

Honolulu MedSpa offers the safe version of a “tummy tuck,” called Venus Freeze. It’s a multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed magnetic fields to the skin to produce a dense, uniform heat matrix. (MP)2 technology increases collagen synthesis without pain, resulting in a dramatic improvement in the skin. When I went into my appointment last week with my lovely technician, Ewa, she said it would feel as if I was getting a hot stone massage. Painless and relaxing? Sign me up!

As I was getting settled on the table, Ewa applied a gel-like substance all over my tummy that helps the applicator glide more easily. Once the gel was applied, she then began the treatment with smooth, consistent movements back and forth with the applicator. It was so comfortable and relaxing, just like Ewa mentioned, it did feel like I was getting a hot stone massage. I was almost bummed it was only a 30-minute treatment, because it felt so good! Haha. Ewa would check the temperature of my stomach with her laser gun to make sure it wasn’t too hot. Depending on which part of the body you get treated, they can take anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes.

After my 30-minute treatment, we took a photo to show you what it looked like and it was a slight pinkness on the skin. Although it was pink, it didn’t hurt at all and it went away within the hour. For my tummy, it’s recommended to get at least 8 treatments and to go 7-10 days after your treatment for your continued treatments. I can’t wait to show you the final results and I go in for my 2nd treatment tomorrow!
