What Is SculpSure Treatment?
SculpSure® treatment uses laser light technology to target your trouble areas which are resistant to your best efforts and healthy lifestyle. Each treatment session typically runs less than half an hour` per trouble area. It is FDA-approved to eliminate fat in the flanks and abdomen. However, it is also safe to use for the treatment of other problem areas including the knees, upper arms, and inner and outer thighs. On average, a quarter of the problem area’s fat may be eliminated during each treatment session. One of the highlights of this noninvasive treatment method is the fat is the dead fat cells are eliminated slowly over the course of several weeks, so it looks like you are losing weight naturally.
While CoolSculpting may be seen as a viable alternative to this treatment, SculpSure® does not use pressure during the treatment process like CoolSculpting does. Additionally, CoolSculpting treatments typically last much longer, requiring more of your time our of your busy lifestyle. Treatment results with the CoolSculpting device tend to create lumpy or dimpled results, but choosing our treatments with SculpSure® can create smoother results.
Liposuction can be an extremely expensive and time-consuming processing for removing unwanted body fat. Furthermore, you must take antibiotics for two weeks, wear a compression garment for two months and the recovery process is long. You will spend at least a few days out of work if you have a desk job. You cannot drive yourself home after the procedure. You have to wait at least two weeks to return to normal activities. You can expect soreness, swelling and bruising for at least three weeks. There are also much more stringent health requirements such as not taking antibiotics and certain supplements and painkillers and not consuming nicotine for six to eight weeks leading up to the procedure. It is clear SculpSure® is the best method for fat removal.
Is It Right for Me?
You may be a good candidate for SculpSure treatment if you are within 30 pounds of your goal weight, have maintained your current body weight, or lost weight for the past six months and have a body mass index (BMI) of no more than 30. A good candidate has realistic expectations of the results of this treatment and understands it is not a weight loss treatment method. This treatment method is ideal for individuals looking for a fat removal solution not a weight loss solution who desires natural-looking results. The cells underneath the outer layer of your skin are destroyed immediately, but it takes several months for your lymphatic system to completely flush them out of your body. You can see results within the first three weeks.
Is SculpSure Safe?
SculpSure treatment is an ideal treatment method for nearly everyone in the right frame of mind because it is safe. No anesthesia is required. It is safe for all skin types and requires neither an incision nor an injection. It is also a very comfortable treatment. The wavelength used in this treatment method is attracted to your subdermal fat cells. They absorb the heat and are destroyed without the outer layer of the skin being affected.
Are the Results Permanent?
The results of SculpSure treatment are intended to be permanent. Adults cannot grow new fat cells, so once your lymphatic system flushes the dead fat cells, they are gone forever. However, you must maintain your healthy lifestyle. It is possible for existing fat cells to expand. If you gain a significant amount of weight after treatment, you may need to schedule another treatment to regain your desired silhouette.
What Is the Recovery Time?
There is no downtime associated with SculpSure treatment. There is no pain associated with the treatment thanks to the cooling technology applied to the skin as the laser heats the cells underneath. After your appointment, grab lunch, go back to work or do whatever you want. Many patients say the treatment is as relaxing as a hot stone massage. Stay well-hydrated 24 to 36 hours after treatment and massage the treated area or areas several times per day for a few days after the procedure. Other than that, you may return to any regular daily activities.
How Much Does It Cost?
There are many factors affecting the cost of SculpSure treatment. These include how you carry your weight, the size of the area you want to be treated, your desired results and how much pinchable fat you have. Each treatment area will have a different cost associated with it. Get the most accurate quote by coming in for an initial consultation.
