Sometimes a healthy diet and exercise does not remove the stubborn fat we wish to get rid of. Stubborn fat pockets, such as the abdomen, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs, can be treated with SculpSure® body sculpting. SculpSure® is the first FDA-cleared, fat reduction, laser technology that’s noninvasive and requires no downtime.
Body sculpting is an aesthetic procedure that permanently eliminates stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, and inner and outer thighs. Noninvasive body sculpting techniques are proven to be very effective, but they’re not meant to be a weight loss procedure. For this reason, the best candidates are women who are already close to their healthy body weight but have resistant areas of fat. While SculpSure can be used to treat several areas of the body, it’s primarily used to target the abdomen and sides.
SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, back, inner thighs and outer thighs. Each 25-minute procedure can destroy up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery.
SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise. Call our office at 757-452-3956 to schedule a free consultation with no obligation required!
When lasers are set to specific wavelengths, they can safely pass through your skin to target fat cells. The laser energy heats fat cells just enough to destroy them, then they’re naturally carried away by the body.
Flat applicators are placed on top of your skin directly above the area of targeted fat. The applicators emit laser light and have a built-in cooling device that keeps your skin cool during the procedure.
The treatment takes 25 minutes. During that time, the lasers cycle on and off causing periods of warmth and cooling. Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated. After the 25-minute treatment is complete, you may resume your daily activities.
One session with SculpSure destroys up to 24% of the fat cells treated. It takes time for the body to remove the destroyed fat cells, so you may see results as early as six weeks, with optimal results seen at 12 weeks.
Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.
There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.
Every patient is different. Your treatment provider will develop a customized treatment plan to meet your desired goals. Most patients see the best results when they treat multiple areas. Ask your treatment provider about the treatment plan that is right for you.
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller but do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas. After the SculpSure treatment, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not return.
SculpSure takes just 25 minutes to permanently reduce your fat cells by heating them through a laser-based technology. It uses up to 4, flat, non-suction applicators at once for optimal results. The skin is kept cool and comfortable through a constant contact cooling plate.
In contrast, Cool Sculpting takes 60 minutes to permanently reduce your fat cells by freezing the fat cells in the applicators. It uses 1, suction-based applicator at a time.
