Getting the shape and contour we want to see in our bodies can be liberating, yet often take a little help. Even after diet and exercise have done their work, heredity, age, and experience can still leave defiant areas of fat that seem to sass whatever we do to lose them.
Liposuction was one way, and many people still benefit from it. CoolSculpting gained popularity rapidly by freezing fat and allowing the body to dispose of it. But today there’s a new answer, and we think that for most people it’s a better answer than vacuuming fat cells out or freezing them.
We Chose Carefully and You Should, Too
At RenewalMD, we decided to offer SculpSure after careful evaluation, because the advantages for our patients were compelling.
There is a science to medicine, and that scientific method demands proof. Also, every person has a different body, goals, and situation. So it’s unusual to say plainly that something is just better.
Nevertheless, SculpSure takes less time, costs less money, feels more comfortable, produces smoother results, is suitable for more people and involves virtually no recovery time. The warmth of SculpSure spreads naturally so the transitions between treated and untreated areas are smoother than with freezing or suction. So with all this going for SculpSure, “better” is a hard word to avoid.
SculpSure Step by Step
SculpSure sends targeted light energy into the layers under the skin to heat fat cells. The carefully controlled temperature breaks down fat-cell composition. The process is non-invasive and does not affect the skin surface. While smooth laser applicators are at work, people feel an initial sensation of cool that is applied throughout the procedure to add comfort while the fat cells below are being warmed intermittently. After a few minutes a feeling of warmth is felt deep down.
Over the next several weeks, the body’s own systems gently dispose of the treated fat cells. They are gone for good. Visible results show up at about six weeks, and they continue to improve for about 12 weeks.
At Its Best in Problem Areas
For many people the tummy – front, sides, and even back – are spots that can resist diet and exercise. Because SculpSure applicators can targets several areas, spots like the lower abdomen and “muffin tops” are often treated simultaneously as well.
One advantage of SculpSure for contouring the buttocks, too, is that it can be focused on the parts you don’t want, like the crease atop the thigh, and away from the parts you do want, like the crest you may have worked out hard to develop. The thighs – upper and lower, inner and outer – are another popular target for SculpSure.
Good News All Around
Most anyone who is in generally good health is likely to qualify for SculpSure, because it requires no anesthetic. It takes about 25 minutes for each treatment area, and as a non-invasive procedure it can be accomplished without a hospital visit.
As always, the first step sets the tone. Look for a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands you, who has the medical knowledge and experience you need, plus the awareness and empathy make your own personal goals come to life.
