When you were younger, you probably had a relatively easy time maintaining a slim, athletic figure. However, as your body ages and your metabolism slows down, you are likely to have increased difficulty getting rid of troublesome pockets of fat on your body. You can regain a slim, youthful figure with SculpSure at R Shaheen Vascular in Mountain View, California. We can use this fat reduction technique to create lasting improvements in your figure.
Does SculpSure Provide Permanent Fat Reduction?
SculpSure is a permanent fat reduction method that can make more lasting improvements in your body than traditional contouring methods.
If you’ve tried to lose unwanted fat by eating better and exercising more, you already know that maintaining your new body is a very challenging endeavor. If you skip a couple of workouts or eat a few unhealthy meals, you can easily regain your lost fat and lose your slim, attractive figure. This is partly because you cannot change your number of fat cells by living a healthy lifestyle.
A Difficult Issue
You have a unique number of fat cells in your thighs, sides, and other areas of your body. When you adopt a new diet or exercise program, your body will burn away energy that is stored in your fat cells. As your body uses up this stored energy, your existing fat cells will gradually become smaller. Your shrinking fat cells will cause your body to look slimmer and more sculpted.
However, your healthy new lifestyle will not remove any fat cells from your body. As a result, if you stop eating well and exercising, your cells will begin to store additional fat. As these cells grow in size, and your body will become less athletic and contoured.
A New Solution
Fortunately, you don’t have to give up your favorite foods or spend every night in the gym in order to achieve a contoured body. Our non-invasive treatment can create lasting changes in your figure. Instead of using up the energy in your existing fat cells, this treatment will completely eliminate many of the fat cells in your target area. Accordingly, you will not need to spend your time or money receiving frequent follow-up sessions.
Maintaining Your Contoured Physique
Although this treatment permanently alters your body, it will not kill all of your fat cells. If you begin eating large amounts of unhealthy foods and live a sedentary lifestyle, the remaining fat cells in your body will swell. As your fat cells become larger, your body will start to look softer and less sculpted. Living a balanced, active life is an ideal way to prevent this issue from decreasing the impact of your body contouring treatment.
How Does This Technique Eliminate My Unwanted Fat Cells?
SculpSure uses heat energy to melt away troublesome pockets of fat on your body. Your fat cells can only survive under a narrow range of temperatures. When your fat cells become too hot or too cold, they will break down and die.
During your treatment, we will use a customized laser device to send specific amounts of heat energy into your fat cells. The heat will cause fatal damage to the structure of these cells. After the heat has killed your fat cells, your lymphatic system will use natural techniques to wipe these dead cells out of your body. As the quantity of fat cells in your treatment area declines, your body will become sculpted and slim.
Can I Use This Contouring Method to Sculpt Multiple Features on My Body?
Using this laser treatment to sculpt several multiple features on your body is a great way to address pesky pockets of fat that are keeping you from feeling happy about your appearance. We can use our device to melt away the fat that is located on several areas of your body, including your stomach, thighs, back, and flanks.
This treatment can also transform the appearance of your face by removing unwanted fat under your chin. Since fat cells in this location are notoriously difficult to address with diet and exercise, this technique is one of the best ways to remove your double chin.
Will This Treatment Harm My Skin?
When you hear that we will use a laser to melt away your fat, it’s normal to feel nervous about this energy’s effect on your skin. Fortunately, this laser uses cooling technology to prevent the surface of your skin from developing burns, scars, or other types of damage.
In addition, this technology uses your fat cells’ unique reaction to changing temperatures to destroy these cells without causing you to experience injuries or discomfort. Your fat cells will sustain structural damage at a much lower temperature than the other cells in your body. As a result, we can use heat energy to disrupt these cells without causing harm to other tissues in your treated area.
How Should I Prepare for My Laser Treatment?
You’ll begin the process of improving your body by having a quick consultation with us. This meeting will allow you to talk about the areas of fat that are bothering you, ask questions about this contouring method, and review your medical history with us. If we decide that this technique will work for you, we will put together a detailed contouring treatment schedule.
The Next Step
You should wear loose, comfortable clothing for all of your contouring treatments. During your appointments, we will ask you to sit in a reclining position. Once you are lying down, we will use a belt-like device to attach our laser applicators to your body. These lasers will take about twenty-five minutes to send heat energy into your tissues.
You are likely to feel short cycles of coolness and warmth throughout the next twenty-five minutes. You might also notice a gentle tingling feeling. Switching between hot and cool sensations will prevent your skin from overheating and enable you to feel safe and relaxed as we melt away your fat.
How Many Treatments Will I Need to Achieve a Sculpted Body?
This body contouring method is very good at decreasing your unwanted fat, and we can kill up to 24% of your unwanted fat cells during one short sculpting session. That said, it’s normal to need multiple laser treatments to achieve your dream body.
The exact details of your fat reduction treatment will depend on the changes that you would like to see in your body. If you want to reduce a small amount of fat on your sides, for instance, you might receive one or two treatment sessions. If you want to target larger pockets of fat on your thighs, stomach, and sides, you will need to receive more laser treatments.
How Long Will My Body Take to Eliminate My Melted Fat Cells?
You shouldn’t feel disappointed if you do not see immediate changes in your frustrating pockets of fat. Your lymphatic system will take several weeks to clear away these dead cells. Although the exact length of this process will vary, you will probably notice a decrease in your unwanted fat within six to twelve weeks.
Can I Receive This Treatment the Day Before I Attend an Important Event?
This treatment doesn’t require you to receive general anesthesia, injections, or incisions. Accordingly, you don’t need to schedule time away from your work, chores, social life, and other significant events after your appointment is complete. That said, if you want to look sleek and sculpted on a beach vacation, family reunion, or another important life event, you will need to plan ahead.
As discussed above, your body can take up to three months to completely flush out your excess fat. Further, you might need to receive multiple contouring treatments. To give yourself time to achieve these goals, you will need to begin your treatments a few months before your meaningful event.
Can I Use This Treatment to Reduce My Weight?
You don’t have to be thin or fit to use this treatment. In fact, this treatment is intended to remove those annoying pockets of fat that you can’t change by yourself. However, our laser will not remove fat from every location on your body, and you shouldn’t use this technique to reduce your weight.
If you are significantly overweight, you should use diet and exercise programs to address this issue. Once you are closer to your goal weight, you can use this treatment to enhance areas of your body that haven’t responded to your lifestyle changes.
What Is the Difference Between This Treatment and Other Body Contouring Methods?
There’s a reason why about 90% of people who used this treatment said that they were satisfied with their results. This contouring technique has many innovative features that other fat reduction methods lack.
Invasive procedures like liposuction can be used to suck out large amounts of fat from your body. Although liposuction will create noticeable changes in your silhouette, going through this type of invasive procedure has significant drawbacks. You will receive incisions that could create scars on your body. Further, this treatment has a significant recovery time, and you will have to avoid attending exercise classes, going to your job, and engaging in other activities for a while.
In contrast, our non-invasive sculping method has zero downtime. You don’t have to lie in bed while your body is adjusting to your treatment. Instead, you will immediately be able to give a presentation at work or go to a party.
A Very Comfortable Choice
In addition to SculpSure, there are a number of other non-invasive contouring methods that use different types of energy to destroy unwanted fat cells. For instance, there are methods that use cooling devices to lower the temperatures of your fat cells until they freeze. This freezing process can be uncomfortable and difficult to endure.
In contrast, our heating technology uses an advanced cycling method to sculpt your body. This technique will not require you to endure extreme temperatures or deal with unpleasant cold sensations.
Can Men and Women Use This Contouring Method?
It’s normal for men and women to have difficulty achieving athletic, sculpted bodies. Men often have fat deposits on their stomachs, while women are likely to store excessive fat on their flanks and thighs. Since this laser device can eliminate unnecessary fat in all of these locations, this treatment is a wonderful way for men and women to correct these annoying fat deposits.
Melt Away Your Fat
Using SculpSure to contour your stomach, slim your thighs, or remove fat from other bodily features is a great way to look strong, youthful, and confident. Even better, this technique is able to permanently destroy fat cells in these areas of your body.
