SculpSure is the latest development in fat reduction treatments that use laser light technology to precisely target areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is noninvasive, requires no anesthesia and the total treatment time is 25 minutes. An average of 24% of fat is destroyed through the application of heat which is directed only at the fatty tissue beneath the outer layer of skin.
Yes, SculpSure is very safe as it requires no anesthesia, does not require an incision or an injection and is safe for all skin types. The FDA has approved the use this specific wavelength of laser energy to break down fat in the abdomen and flanks. It is also safely used ‘off label’ to treat other areas of stubborn fat including the thighs, upper arms and knees. SculpSure safely eliminates bulging fat pads which ruin an otherwise aesthetic silhouette.
The wavelength of the laser light from a SculpSure device is particularly attracted to fat cells. The cells beneath the outer layer of skin absorb the heat and are destroyed. The outer layer of skin is not affected and remains completely comfortable during treatment. Over the following months, the destroyed cells are eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system.
You can schedule your treatment over your lunch break or at any convenient time during your day since you can return to your normal activities immediately following the 25 minute treatment.
Once you have specified where you want to lose the fat, your technician will configure the contouring frames to fit the area. There are four contouring trays which accommodate different areas of the body. The benefit is that separate areas can be treated at the same time such as both sides of the flanks, or the love handles.
There is a cooling layer on each device which will activate immediately when the device is turned on. You will feel a cooling sensation throughout the treatment along with intervals of tingling or deep warmth. This indicates that the treatment is targeting the fat as expected.
After 25 minutes, your treatment is complete and you can go back to work or your other activities. There are no after effects and the treatment enjoys an unprecedented 90% satisfaction rate among patients.
Many patients begin to see results in about 6 weeks following treatment with continued improvement over the following 6 weeks. Since the body is eliminating the destroyed fat cells through normal lymphatic cleansing action, you will gradually see improvement in the mirror and feel improvement in the fit of your clothes depending on how quickly your body eliminates the fat cells.
The best candidates for SculpSure are those who are within 10 to 15 pounds of their ideal weight. Patients who have more weight to lose can discuss more effective options. Patients with visible fat deposits that are not responding to diet and exercise will obtain the best result from SculpSure. Those with saddlebags, love handles, pouches of fat in the abdomen, knees or other areas will enjoy a noticeable improvement using this breakthrough laser light technology.
Most patients need only one SculpSure treatment to rid themselves of stubborn fat bulges. If desired, a second treatment can be scheduled in 2 to 3 months. We will discuss your treatment options once he understands what your goals are and how quickly you want to achieve them. SculpSure is a very versatile method of targeting pockets of fat and can be the answer to years of frustration trying to attain an elusive image goal.
SculpSure uses heat to destroy fat cells, while CoolSculpting freezes the fat. One major benefit for SculpSure is in the speed of treatment; CoolSculpting takes over an hour per area while a SculpSure treatment is 25 minutes. The suction applicator for CoolSculpting is uncomfortable for some people and the required massage after treatment is not always well tolerated.
SculpSure has 4 independent applicators that can be configured in many ways to accommodate patient needs. CoolSculpting has applicators that restrict their use in certain areas and as they are not independent, several treatments may be needed to treat an area that SculpSure applicators can treat simultaneously.
