Are you struggling to lose stubborn deposits of fat even with diet and exercise techniques? Both men and women have areas of fat that may be resistant to traditional methods, and now there is a new option for non-invasive body contouring. SculpSure is an FDA-approved treatment approved to reduce unwanted fat in the abdomen and flank areas.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a new, revolutionary treatment for fat reduction and body sculpting. This procedure utilizes light-based technology that helps you achieve a slimmer appearance in less than 30 minutes without surgery or downtime. The innovative technology permanently destroys fat cells in just one session, and results can be seen as quickly as six weeks.
SculpSure can help remove fat in the following areas:
- Upper arms
SculpSure was recently FDA-cleared to remove fat cells in your submental area, which is the area beneath your chin.
How does SculpSure work?
The SculpSure platform uses laser energy to reach the fat cells that lie beneath your outer layers of skin and tissue. The concentrated energy heats those cells to the point that their structural integrity is compromised.
No longer able to effectively store fat, the cells collapse and their fat stores are processed and eliminated by your body. The damaged cell structure is also removed by your body’s lymphatic system over a period of around 12 weeks following your treatment.
Is SculpSure painful?
SculpSure treatments are very well tolerated, and many men and women find their sessions to be relaxing. You may notice a sensation of gentle warmth, but a patented cooling system ensures the surface of your skin stays at a comfortable temperature, even as the underlying fat cells are heated.
Best of all, SculpSure has virtually no need for recovery. You’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately after your appointments, and there’s no need to alter your normal routines before or after sessions.
Am I a good candidate for SculpSure?
Excellent candidates for SculpSure have extra, persistent fat on their abdomen or love handles, and are near or at their correct body weight. SculpSure should not be utilized as a weight loss treatment, rather a contour treatment that puts the final touch on your weight loss journey.
Can SculpSure help me lose weight?
While SculpSure does permanently eliminate targeted fat cells, the goal is refining the contours of your body, not reducing your overall weight. Treatments destroy as much as 24% of the targeted cells.
Those that remain will still be able to expand to store fat until it’s needed. So you can still gain weight after SculpSure treatments, and if you gain too much weight you stand the risk of “undoing” the effects you achieved through SculpSure.
What can I expect from SculpSure?
During treatment, applicators are held against the skin with straps. Patients can expect a feeling of warmth, and energy levels are adjusted for optimal comfort. Each cycle of treatment lasts 25 minutes. Results can be seen as soon as six weeks, with final results improving within 12 weeks post-treatment.
How long is recovery from SculpSure?
Some mild swelling and tenderness are common for patients immediately following treatment. Sometimes mild firmness develops in the treated area, but this generally subsides over several weeks. Tenderness side effects typically last a week or two. However, patients can return to work and exercise immediately after treatment of SculpSure.
