Getting rid of stubborn fat is easier said than done. Unfortunately, there are many instances where diet and exercise are simply not enough, especially if we are talking about stubborn pockets of fat around your midsection, on your thighs and on other parts of your body. SculpSure® is a procedure that has been approved by the FDA as a way of getting rid of stubborn fat deposits. This is a non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring procedure that may be just what you have been looking for to achieve your goals for your figure.
SculpSure® works by using the power of a light-based laser to safely attack the fat cells that are underneath your skin’s surface. The laser energy is able to pass through your skin with no problem and gently heat up the fat and melt it. When your fat cells are melted or destroyed, your body then removes them through your natural waste removal process.
One of the great things about SculpSure® is that little to no downtime is involved. Once the procedure is complete, you should be able to get up and go right back to your everyday activities. You might have some minor soreness, kind of like having done a good abdominal work out, but this goes away relatively quickly and should have no impact on your usual routine.
Results of SculpSure are not instantaneous. It takes time for your body to eliminate the fat. While you may notice changes within a few weeks, complete response takes up to 12 weeks to be seen. For the very best results, we recommend a “Treat to Complete” approach – that is, the more areas you treat, the better the results. Also, better results are typically seen with two treatments per treatment area.
In comparison to CoolSculpting, the other FDA approved temperature based technology to kill fat cells, SculpSure offers several advantages. First of all, it is a faster procedure. While SculpSure takes 25 minutes to treat each area, CoolSculpting takes between 35 minutes to an hour. Also, at the end of the procedure, after SculpSure you can simply get up and leave. After CoolSculpting, the treated area (which is frozen like a stick of butter) has to be massaged…and this massage can be very uncomfortable. Also, the heat of the SculpSure treatment does not cause the numbness, tingling and burning that is often experienced days after treatment with CoolSculpting.
If you are concerned about excess fat on certain trouble areas and if you have tried to remove this fat with diet and exercise but have not had the results that you want, SculpSure® may be perfect for you. You don’t have to settle for a body that you don’t like.
