Confession: I've been a fitness junkie since I was 18. At first it was purely aesthetic. I spent hours at the gym. I tried every new workout. I ran intervals in the morning. Crossfit in the afternoon. Hot yoga every night. Later it became a lifestyle. Marathons led to Ironman triathlons and ultramarathons. But even after countless hours of riding, running, HIIT training, and sweating my little heart out, I still had annoying, visible pockets of fat that wouldn't go away. I tried Endermologie at 21, followed by VelaShape, VelaSmooth, Zerona, VaserShape, Bella Contour, and almost every other non-invasive body contouring method around. Sure, most of them made a minor difference, but it was never enough to warrant the time and cost. So I gave up and accepted that the fatty pockets would plague me forever. Sigh.
Enter strawberry laser. My sister first told me about it. "OMG, dude! Have you heard of strawberry laser?! It's supposed to be AWESOME. Like, waaay better than anything." Then a few days later, a friend posted an event on Facebook -- the grand opening of Elysium Aesthetics, which offered strawberry laser treatments. IT WAS A SIGN.
After my first session, my dress was visibly looser. After six sessions, I seriously can't believe the difference. Those pockets of fat that I've been battling for over a decade -- almost gone. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, has ever worked like this. And I still have two sessions left!
Each session takes twenty minutes. You're basically wrapped in a wide strap containing miracle lasers. Then voila, off come the straps and away goes the fat. The straps are wide and cover larger body areas than most other treatments, so for me, each session is practically a two for one. The strawberry laser is effective even if you don't work out, but sweating and drinking a lot of water magnifies the results.
The prices are fantastic. After my first treatment, I researched rates around town and Eysium beats all of them hands down. The salon owner is funny and sweet. I felt comfortable with her right off the bat.
If you're worried about fat pockets...or stubborn fat...or ANY kind of fat, you have to check this place out. You'll thank me as you're strutting down the beach in your bangin' bikini body.
