I don’t write about “me time” much.
Or at all.
So, a chance to write about something called a BodySculpt treatment likened to a “hot stone massage” with physical results intrigued me. What the what?
BodyBrite in West Omaha started using Venus Swan and they invited a few bloggers to try a treatment.
What’s Venus Swan?
Venus Swan is a device used to treat wrinkles, reduce cellulite and tighten skin. There’s a lot of technical jargon that is lost on me, but basically, it delivers radio frequency to a wrinkly or lumpy area, and makes it look less wrinkly and lumpy. They have a brochure if you want medical details.
The result is said to be softened wrinkles, tightened skin and reduced cellulite – all without surgery. It’s a procedure, I’m told, done in some local plastic surgeons’ office. It’s a lot cheaper than plastic surgery, though. A session per zone is $199.
Two of the most popular areas were the tummy and the thighs – parts on moms, in particular, that take drastically change through the years.
What’s it like?
Before I went in, I researched the procedure and read patient reviews. It was described as a “nice, warm, relaxing sensation.”
Indeed it is. Here’s how things went down:
I opted for treatment on my thighs, which took about 20 minutes each leg. After you get a “before” picture, you lie down, get some jelly rubbed into the area getting the treatment (think ultrasound jelly), and then the technician rubs this device on you. It slowly warms to about 42-44 degrees Celsius. You’ll feel that heat, and your skin will turn red.
I would’ve fallen asleep, but it was bright at BodyBrite and the music was more energizing than soothing. That said, the hum of the machine and the repetitiveness of the motion lulled me to a nice calm place.
What are the results?
After one treatment, results are faint but seeing the before and after picture, there is a slight difference. No. I’m not sharing the pictures.
I wasn’t blown away, but I also went in skeptical. You know the saying “There’s no such thing as a quick fix,” and all that.
They recommend between 6-8 treatments for long–term results. I did see some before and after pictures of other people and there were big differences. Thighs and rear end treatments looked like they yielded great results. If you want big results, one session won’t do that.
