I have a certain amount of bumpiness on my chin. I do massage quite aggressively (pinching and rolling) but I'm not seeing much of a difference. I think this could be a form of cellulite. Iíve just started lurking on this thread which seems quite fascinating. Iíve started dry brushing again, using a brush in each hand (full body). But even though I have been dry brushing my face for a couple of years, using Retin A, the vaculifter and manual massage, my chin is still bumpy. Does anyone have any experience of something similar? Iím wondering whether the knuckle massage would help, and will certainly go ahead and give it a try Ė nothing to lose.
Would some kind of lymphatic flush help (to flush internal toxins)?
I also carry tension in my chin and mouth which makes the dimpling look worse. Quite honestly, Iíve even started thinking about injectibles as a way of evening out the area.
One good thing is that the dimpling hasnít worsened. And I know someone who had slightly more dimpling than myself and, over the years, itís really become more prominent.
Iíd love to hear what other people have experienced. Thanks Smile

I'm skeptical of claims like this. I'd like to see some before and after photos where someone did this on one thigh, for example and then compare it to the untreated thigh. Of course, with Photoshop you can't really believe your eyes.

I made an order for the Bundle on 25/1/2010.

I emailed them for details of delivery and tracking code. But I haven't got a reply since then. I even checked my spam folders and I haven't got a reply.I just hope that my Order is alright.

What are your experiences with the customer service on Carole Maggio's site?

Anyway I sent another email to Carole and I hope to receive a reply soon.

I have ordered several things from her site and haven't received any notice about shipping or anything until it arrives. Most times the shipping was fast but with her new dvd out they maybe a little slower. I did email Carole about one shipment and she returned the email and my product had already been sent. I don't think you have anything to worry about. The No Lipo is wonderful!

Thanks Toby!I'm relieved now.

To be fair to Carole when I emailed her about the product before purchasing it she was really quick in replying. So I was really amazed with her service.

Based on your past experience buying products on her site, I really don't have anything to worry about!

Just want to let everyone know that since writing my earlier post, Carole has emailed me about the product. She has answered all my queries and I am realy grateful for her customer service. It was shipped immediately after I had purchased it.

She has asked me to inform her once I have receieved the product.

Two thumbs up from me on her service.

Just wanted to let you know that I have received the package today! Woohoo! She shipped the item on the day I ordered itself.

It got kind of stuck at my local post office as Customs cleared it for release on 30/1/2010!

Items are intact and good to go. I can't wait to do the no lipo lipo and am off to watch the DVD now.

Hurray for Carole MAggio everyone!

I just ordered my DVD... I have been waiting until I had my baby to start my skin and body care routines and now that 10 days has passed since giving birth I am ready to get back in shape, look and feel better.

I am really excited and cant wait to get my dvd.

The no lipo- lipo is really good. If you are consistent you will really see the difference.

After about 14 days doing the whole routine, I noticed that my pants were looser. I've somewhat stopped doing the knuckle treatment but I kep doing the dry brushing and its amazing.

Did you buy just the DVD or the whole package which came with the mitt, strap and the vit e oil?

Hi Everyone,

I JUST received my No Lipo Lipo DVD today, WOOHOO! I'm sooo excited Smile

I'm taking a bunch of before pictures and measurements this afternoon and will be faithfully sticking to this program every day for 60 days. Every week I'll be taking pics/measurements to see my progress. I'm going to post feedback/results as I go - some of you just got the DVD, have you started? Wanna go along with me and post your feedback/results too?

Bombshellbella, I love doing it, I must say. It's time I spend for "me" working on "myself" - I hang out my bathing suit every time I do it to give me motivation, lol.

A newborn and a toddler... oh my...! And I thought a puppy was a handful Wink

I've been doing a deep knuckle massage on my body in the shower for years. It does work! Just wondering how this DVD differs than what I do. Probably not much.

What do you all do with the loofahs?

It differs not too much, but this is more of a system with different ways of stimulating the skin of problem areas.

The loofahs are for skin brushing. People use different products to brush their skin (loofahs, boar bristle brushes, loofah mits, etc.). I kinda like using a brush, though it's a bit more harsh... or maybe I should use the term "intensely invigorating" Smile

I'm not questionning that the program might have worked for some people and maybe everyone who was consistent with it. but those before and after pictures on the website are photoshopped. so I'm not buying.

I've got to say hands down its a wonderful system. Yes it does involve a knuckle massage, but its in a specific sequence, but more importantly the massage is done with oil. Also Carole has you do a dry brushing kind of sequence, except with a loofah glove thats much stronger than any brush I've ever used.

Also she has tips on supplements (she recommends a particular mixture) and the no carbs after 5pm. Its really worth its money, and if your only doing a dvd knuckle massage, I'd say your missing out!

I've said to dragonflyte already but I really believe that if your not using her products, then your short changing yourself. My natural health food shop has a variety of brushes and gloves and I've tried them and none of them come any where near in comparison and its the ones the models use - and you can see them turning bright red because of the increased circulation.

I don't think they would put them on the website if they had been photoshopped - as they could be sued over it as thats false sdvertising isn't it. Has had do you know its been photoshopped - what makes you say that?

They can fool some people maybe but they didn't even do a good job. anyone who pays a little attention to details on these pictures will see it clearly.

This stuff is part of my job.

Ok can you give us insight plesae, I mean I'm looking and I can't see how you can tell they're photoshoped. What is it that makes you think so? Please share as it means I'll know what to look for in future?

Aprile - do you think Carole has had photoshoped photos posted. She doesn't strike me as the type but Has seems to think there is proof in the photos?

I use Photoshop and Illustrator all the time. It's quite hard to tell unless you are looking at a high resolution photo, but sometimes there is obviously a "smoothing" of the skin pigment which gives it away.

I use Photoshop to actually retouch images (including my own to remove any wrinkles or blemishes!). I've used it for 10yrs intensively and I consider myself a pro at doing a flawless job of it. If someone knows what they are doing, it's extremely difficult to tell that photos have been Photoshopped.

I will say though it's an extremely common practice. Cosmetic surgeons, swimsuit and skin care manufacturers do it all the time. It's obvious in the billboards for makeup and skin care products that the skin has been Photoshopped because the tone is absolutely perfect in all of the models - not at all realistic. Whether the solutions work or not seem irrelevant to whether people Photoshop images - even when it's not really necessary to the success of the product.

Unfortunatley we like to think that's the case but it isn't. I worked for one of the biggest cosmetics companies in the world for 2yrs - believe me do to it to "EVERY" picture, often quite extensively.

One of my graphic designers freelances for a very well known lingerie manufacturer and that's all he does - Photoshop women's legs, thighs, bellies and arms! Smile

I don't know if No Lipo Lipo Photoshops images, and I really don't care to be honest. Everyone does it. I'm going by the feedback of users on forums like this who have used the product and have had success with it (like yourself).

So what is it your looking at when you examine the before and afters and see photoshop? Is it the smoothing of the skin pigment, and is that something that you believe couldn't be achieved with that technique?
