Do you have stubborn body fat that just won’t budge despite your best efforts? If you eat healthy, exercise, and get enough sleep but don’t see any results, you may even want to give up on your healthy lifestyle. But wait — SculpSure may be your solution to finally busting that stubborn body fat.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a noninvasive body contouring procedure designed to target stubborn pockets of body fat without the need for surgery. A 25-minute treatment, the SculpSure system uses laser energy to heat fat cells beneath your skin without affecting your skin’s surface. SculpSure treatments are FDA-approved for fat reduction in the belly and love handles, chin, back, and thighs.
How SculpSure works
SculpSure is a type of lipolysis, a process that eliminates fat cells. SculpSure uses laser technology to “melt” fat cells away.
At your appointment for SculpSure treatment, you will sit comfortably in a reclined position, and Dr. Gosin will mark the designated treatment areas on your body.
SculpSure might not be what you think of when you think “laser technology” — you actually wear the SculpSure device like a belt that radiates heat to kill your unwanted fat cells.
The SculpSure laser gets as hot as 116.6 F: hot enough to kill underlying fat cells, while leaving your skin and other tissues unharmed.
You won’t need anesthesia for a SculpSure treatment; most patients just feel a deep warmth or tingling sensation throughout the procedure.
Each treatment takes about 25 minutes and requires no downtime, so you could easily get treatment on your lunch break, between errands, before a workout, or any other time that’s convenient for you.
During the 12 weeks after the procedure, your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes out the dead fat cells. Most patients need multiple treatments for optimal results, and you can begin your follow-up treatments a few weeks after your initial SculpSure session.
Who’s a good candidate for SculpSure?
If you have a body mass index of 30 or less, you may benefit from SculpSure. SculpSure works to reduce or eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in particular areas of your body — it doesn’t function as a weight-loss method like bariatric surgery or other invasive procedures.
You’re a good candidate for SculpSure if you generally maintain a healthy weight, but need some extra help getting rid of some trouble areas. You’ll achieve optimal benefits when you use SculpSure as a complement to a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.
