What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is not a surgical procedure, so you don’t have to be afraid of incisions, stitches, and scarring. It is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment that removes unwanted fat by melting it with lasers. You can count on SculpSure to remove excess fat permanently without causing unnecessary damage to the rest of your tissue.
Are You a Candidate for SculpSure?
If you are struggling to get rid of stubborn fat deposits around your abdomen and flanks, SculpSure is the ideal treatment for you. This treatment will be more effective when paired with a healthy lifestyle. SculpSure is not a suitable treatment for medically obese patients. It will not provide noticeable results. Patients should have a BMI of no higher than 30. If we contour the submental area, your BMI can go up to 49. However, each patient is different and has different goals. The best way to give you what you want is to assess you and your medical history during an in-person consultation.
Is SculpSure a Weight-Loss Treatment?
In short, no. SculpSure is not a weight-loss alternative. It only targets stubborn, excess fat. For the best results, patients should already have a regular exercise routine and eat a balanced diet. This will ensure you reach your desired outcome when you come to us for your SculpSure treatment. To learn more about the treatment, visit us for an initial consultation. During this consultation, we will assess your current situation and discuss your desired outcome. In this way, we can be on the same page about the treatment.
What is a SculpSure Treatment Like?
During your SculpSure treatment, we will use heat and lasers to melt the stubborn fat under your skin. We do this by strapping the laser to a specific area with fat deposits. Many patients find the procedure relaxing since you can recline during the treatment. There is no extreme discomfort. The procedure is non-invasive and pain-free. You may only feel a slight warming sensation as the lasers melt your fat away. Many patients have described the short procedure as highly tolerable. SculpSure sessions are about 25 minutes long. There is no downtime or lengthy recovery period. You can resume your daily activities as per usual.
How Does SculpSure Work?
As mentioned before, SculpSure uses lasers to heat your fat cells to the point where they are permanently destroyed. Sometime after your treatment, your body will naturally remove the destroyed fat cells. SculpSure does not shrink fat cells to contour your body. SculpSure decreases the number of fat cells in your body. For that reason, the effects are permanent. Your fat cells will not return once destroyed. One SculpSure treatment can remove up to 24% of your fat cells.
CoolSculpting VS SculpSure
You may have heard about CoolSculpting as an effective body contouring treatment. It is important to note that CoolSculpting and SculpSure are not the same treatment. There are a few key differences that set them apart.
CoolSculpting VS SculpSure: Differences
SculpSure uses heat energy to break up and destroy fat cells. The tissue around the fat cells is not as sensitive to heat energy, so it will remain unharmed. A laser device is used to administer heat energy. This process is known as lipolysis.
Unlike SculpSure, CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to remove unwanted fat pockets. CoolSculpting freezes your fat cells until they are completely destroyed. Once again, your surrounding tissue remains safe during the treatment.
SculpSure VS CoolSculpting: Similarities
Both CoolSculpting and SculpSure destroy fat cells permanently and remove them naturally. Your tissue around your fat cells will be safe during both these procedures as the surrounding tissue is not as sensitive to extreme temperature changes. SculpSure and CoolSculpting ensure that your fat cell count decreases, as opposed to fat-shrinking procedures.
Patients have experienced significant before and after SculpSure results. The results are permanent, as the targeted fat cells will not regenerate. However, to maintain excellent results, patients should stick to their healthy lifestyles. This includes a balanced diet and a regular exercise program. We recommend that patients avoid excessive weight gain before and after SculpSure. This will ensure that patients experience the best results.
Patients can expect results in as little as 6-12 weeks. Some people require multiple treatments to achieve their desired outcome, while some patients see results after only one SculpSure session. We can discuss your treatment plan when you visit us for an initial consultation.
