After having kids (2 cuties) and then losing a lot of weight (50 lbs.) pretty rapidly (5 months) my body played a cruel little joke on me. Instead of rewarding me with a six pack stomach to sing praises about my skin looked like an accordion around my stomach.
(Is it possible to play “I’m sexy and I know it!” on the accordion?)
I did not work this hard to get my body back to just let this constant reminder of the “old me” hang over my jeans. I did a little research and went with skin tightening. Here’s why I chose it:
1. It’s affordable. Simply Skin (my 1st sponsor!) will do one (1) big area or two (2) smaller areas for $60 if you use the promo code SHES LOSING IT. It’s recommended that you do three sessions three weeks apart. That’s a total cost of $180. A tummy tuck, by comparison, is $8,400. Yikes!
2. There is no surgery involved. You’re not under the knife. She uses a little laser beam over your stomach to stimulate your body’s own collagen production. Does it hurt? Yeah, a little bit. But she put numbing cream on first, so it just felt like a little sting, which is nothing in comparison to having a major plastic surgery.
3. There is no “down time” to recover. The entire process took less than an hour, I felt completely fine after and I was able to exercise my regular intense routine the next day.
4. You notice results. Although this process is not instant (it takes three sessions spread out over time) I did notice an immediate improvement of my own stomach the very next day. Is the job done? Not yet. But for just having done one session I was really impressed. My husband noticed a difference too, which was nice.
My second session is next week. I will take some pics so you can see what it’s like. If you are in the Austin area and want the $60 rate, the promo code is SHES LOSING IT. This offer is valid until November 3, 2012 (the date of my competition.) Here is the contact information for Simply Skin:
