Disclosure: I received complimentary Bella Shape treatments from Carmen Care Advanced Laser Therapy. All descriptions and claims are according to Carmen Care’s website. No monetary compensation has been received for this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
If someone told you they could get rid of your cellulite, smooth out your skin and give your butt a little lift while they’re at it, what would you say? DUH! I mean, when you essentially eat for a living, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! Sure, I put in countless hours at the gym, but as much as I love doing squats and lunges, they aren’t smoothing out my skin the way I’d like them too. Enter, Carmen Care Advanced Laser Therapy — my booty’s new best friend.
I’ve been given the opportunity to try out a new state-of-the-art “energy medicine” device at Carmen Care Advanced Laser Therapy. The Bella Shape originated in Europe and is the same device as the icoone® that is now offered in 42 countries world-wide, working to revolutionize anti-aging options. According to Carmen Care’s website, the Bella Shape has been endorsed by Gwyneth Paltrow and other celebrities. It offers customized beauty treatments and body care programs that are designed to meet the beauty and aging reversal needs for both men and women of all ages.
The innovative, non-invasive massage technology is just that — an insanely relaxing, comfortable butt and leg massage! The device can also be used on the face and stomach, but I chose to focus on my backside. By using the power of light and laser energy, its a safe and pain-free approach to slimming and shaping your body. After you slip into a tight, mesh body suit, this is what Bella Shape can do for you:
- Treat the connective tissues of the body and face with amazing results
- Improve blood flow
- Reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks
- Rebuild collagen in the skin
- Reduce edema
- Relieve pain and inflammation
- Reduce post-surgery and recovery times
- Normalize cell function
- Improve skin quality and body contouring
So, I’m sure you’re wondering how my first treatment went? Well, I won’t be showing you before and after pictures of my bare bum because well, um, this is the public Internet; HOWEVER, I will honestly say I saw results even after just one session. Even the doctor was impressed with how much a difference there was in the shape. The space between my thighs — that infamous thigh gap we all covet — was significantly larger in the after picture, showing a definite improvement in the shape of my inner thighs. My cheeks looked a little perkier too! I promise it didn’t hurt — at all. In fact, had I not been so involved in watching the process, I totally could have fallen asleep. That’s how relaxing it was. I have a feeling my next session will double as nap-time…
