The silhouette you’re aiming for might still stay slightly out of reach, even after diet and exercise have done their best. Heredity and alignment give all of us some spots that are more resistant to change than others, even after successful weight loss.
So a few good non-surgical options are seeing widespread use. Liposuction is well known, as is CoolSculpting. But today, there’s another answer that removes fat cells permanently without vacuuming them out of the body or freezing them.
Recommended After Careful Evaluation
Everybody’s goals and needs are a little different, but more and more we’re finding that the SculpSure technique has advantages that are hard to beat. Using the warmth created by laser light energy, SculpSure targets fat cells and breaks down their structure. Then, over the course of the next several weeks, the body’s own cleansing system eliminates the fat for good.
The laser instrument not only permits targeting problem areas precisely, but also takes less time, costs less money, feels more comfortable, and produces smoother results.
Easy to Qualify and No Recovery Time
Other important factors that count in favor of SculpSure include that the process is appropriate for more people than some other techniques and it involves virtually no recovery time. Most anyone who is in generally good health is likely to qualify for SculpSure, because it requires no anesthetic.
The transitions between treated and untreated areas are smoother than with freezing or suction, because the warmth of SculpSure spreads naturally.
How SculpSure Works
SculpSure takes about 25 minutes for each treatment area, and it can be accomplished during your lunch hour.
Smooth laser applicators send targeted light energy into the layers under the skin to heat fat cells. While SculpSure is 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 in measured, intermittent pulses. After a few minutes a feeling of warmth is felt deep down. This is the carefully controlled temperature that breaks down fat cell composition. The process is non-invasive and does not affect the skin surface.
Over the next several weeks, the body’s own systems gently dispose of the treated fat cells permanently. Results are visible at about six weeks, and they continue to improve for about 12 weeks.
Going to Work Where You Need It
Because SculpSure applicators can target several areas in the same session, spots such as the lower abdomen and “muffin tops” are often treated simultaneously. The thighs – upper and lower, inner and outer – are another popular target for SculpSure.
Another advantage of SculpSure 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 atop the buttocks that you may have worked out hard to develop.
Designing the Treatment That’s Right for You
As always, the best results begin with good communication. Look for a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands you, who has the awareness and empathy that make your personal goals come to life, as well as the medical knowledge and experience you need.
