If you have ab fat and love handles that won’t go away despite your attention to diet and exercise, you may want to try the new and exciting body contouring procedure known as, SculpSure. SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment that targets and destroys stubborn fat to give you the slimmer, trimmer figure you desire.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a revolutionary treatment that uses state-of-the-art laser energy to eliminate unwanted fat cells and contour the body. SculpSure spot targets the fat, to leave your body flatter and firmer. It is beneficial for fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, such as fat on the abdomen and around the waistline (affectionately called ‘love handles’).
The SculpSure treatment takes around 25 minutes, so you can easily have it done during your lunch break. One session will reduce fat cells in the targeted area by up to 24%. When measured in inches, you can expect to lose about 1-2 inches off the treated area.
SculpSure is not a weight loss option. It is meant for people who are already living a healthy lifestyle but have some fitness trouble spots that they need some help to reduce.
The fat cells that are treated are permanently destroyed, so they are never going to come back. However, if you do put on weight the remaining fat cells will grow, so you will have to continue with your healthy lifestyle to maintain the results.
How many treatments do you need to see results?
Many people only require one treatment with SculpSure to achieve the desired fat reduction. However, the results will not be seen immediately as there is generally some swelling after treatment. The swelling takes several weeks to resolve, and the final results can be seen about 3 months after the treatment.
If a second treatment is needed patients are usually advised to wait until at least 12 weeks. This is because the optimal results of the initial treatment can be seen by this time.
How Does SculpSure work?
The SculpSure device has 4 applicators, so it can treat multiple areas in one session. The laser energy penetrates through to the dermis and targets the fat cells below the surface. The adipose tissue is heated to a range of 42-47 degrees celsius. The fat cells will break down at this temperature, without affecting the surrounding tissue. The fat is then naturally eliminated by the body over the following weeks.
Is it painful?
SculpSure is not a painful treatment, but most patients feel a warming sensation or a tingling feeling during treatment. However, if the treatment does become uncomfortable, the strength of the laser can be adjusted. It also has a built-in cooling system that constantly cools the skin to reduce discomfort.
Are there any side-effects?
There may be some tenderness, numbness and stinging after treatment, but this usually resolves in a few days.
How soon can you see results?
Most patients will notice a difference in the appearance of their body after 6 weeks. However, final results can take up to 3 months as it takes some time for the fat to be dissolved and then eliminated from the body.
- It is a non-invasive treatment which means there is no anesthesia and no downtime. There is also none of the post-operative pain nor scars that accompany traditional liposuction.
- It is a safe and effective procedure, however, the treatment must be performed by a physician that is experienced with the device. Ideally you should have SculpSure done by a physician that specializes in body contouring treatment.
- It treats multiple areas at the same time. This makes it a more efficient treatment when compared to similar devices that can only treat a single area at once.
Eliminating excess fat with SculpSure is a great way to improve your body contours, and jumpstart your healthy lifestyle journey.
