SculpSure® is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment designed to melt subcutaneous body fat in a process known as lipolysis. While invasive body contouring surgeries often require weeks of recovery, patients will be in and out of their SculpSure® appointment in just 25 minutes with absolutely no downtime. For those who are tired of stubborn pockets of body fat, this body contouring treatment might be just what is needed to finally achieve a slim and toned appearance.
The Technology Behind SculpSure®
Produced by a company known as Cynosure, SculpSure® has been rigorously studied for over a decade with dozens of clinical trials. Unlike many other non-invasive body contouring treatments which utilize extremely cold temperatures to kill off fat cells, SculpSure® uses a form of thermal energy to “shock” the cells. Within a few weeks of the treatment, these affected fat cells will become so weak that the patient’s immune system must metabolize and expel them.
What Does It Feel Like?
Even though a powerful light is used to affect fat cells, most people feel no discomfort during their treatment. After the session is over, the average patient does not require any painkillers. This is because SculpSure® uses paddles placed just over the skin to provide the energy. Many of the leading SculpSure® alternatives require suction cups, incisions or soft tissue manipulation in order to achieve the same results.
Is SculpSure® Right for Me?
Only you and our medical professional will be able to decide if SculpSure® is right for you. This non-surgical body contouring treatment can produce amazing results, but patients must have realistic expectations. Those who have already begun to make lifestyle changes and are relatively close to meeting their weight loss goals will almost always enjoy the best results.
Before undergoing any cosmetic treatments, patients should inform our surgeon of any medications, supplements or medical conditions that could affect their treatment. Adult patients who are in relatively good health make the best candidates for SculpSure®.
Before and After Your Treatment
Almost no preparations must be made before SculpSure® is carried out. Most people can head right back to work and their other daily activities. Since no anesthesia is needed, you can also drive yourself to and from the appointment.
On average, SculpSure® sessions last for around 25 minutes. Patients can even have multiple areas treated at the same time. Near the end of the treatment, you might experience some tingling on the surface of your skin. This sensation almost always goes away within a few hours.
The New You
Up to 25 percent of the fat cells are completely destroyed at the treatment site after the very first session. For patients who want even more dramatic results, SculpSure® can be combined with other non-invasive procedures to tighten skin, tone the midsection and even eradicate cellulite.
