Dealing with stubborn fat can be a frustrating experience. Even with a strict diet and hours of exercise every week, it often feels impossible to tone certain areas of the body, such as the hips and thighs. This is because your body will do everything in its power to hold onto pockets of fat as an emergency supply of energy. Diet and exercise should help you get close to your cosmetic goals, but healthy lifestyle habits are not always enough.
As an alternative to invasive procedures, thousands of patients have turned to non-invasive body contouring treatments, such as SculpSure®. Using medical-grade lasers, our cosmetic professional can help you eradicate pockets of fat in as little as 25 minutes.
The Science Behind SculpSure®
Created by a company known as Cynosure, SculpSure® is an FDA-cleared treatment designed to melt away fat with no incisions, anesthetics or sutures. Many years ago, doctors noticed that our fat cells are much different than other forms of soft tissue. Fat responds to certain temperatures and laser wavelengths while the surrounding soft tissue remains completely unharmed. SculpSure® uses a unique laser to target, weaken and eventually destroy the fat cells.
A Look at Your First Appointment
The average treatment session can be carried out in just 25 minutes. During these appointments, most patients read, use their phone or simply take a nap. While you might notice a slight stinging sensation just below the applicators, most patients feel nothing more than gentle warmth. This is because the SculpSure® pads cool the patient’s skin while heating the fat cells. The intensity of the SculpSure® lasers can be altered to improve the patient’s comfort.
The Results of Body Contouring
Unlike invasive procedures that physically remove large amounts of fat, body contouring treatments are a better option for minor alterations. This is why most specialists agree that patients should already be making progress toward their weight loss and cosmetic goals. Studies have shown us that patients who continue to eat healthy foods and exercise regularly are the most likely to enjoy long-term results.
Most patients do not need to take any time off of work or their other daily obligations. The results of SculpSure® should become apparent after about six weeks. At that time, your body will begin to attack and metabolize the cells that have been weakened.
Is SculpSure® Right for Me?
There are pros and cons to every cosmetic treatment, and you will need to speak with our doctor to see if this particular procedure is right for you. The ideal patient is a healthy adult who has realistic expectations about the results of SculpSure®. You should also be dedicated to maintaining your healthy lifestyle habits in order to keep the fat off. As long as new fat cells are not produced, the results of SculpSure® are permanent.
