Are you looking for a way to lose stubborn fat and sculpt your body without invasive surgical procedures? Try SculpSure®, the first FDA-approved laser procedure for safe, effective fat reduction. SculpSure has a patient satisfaction rate of over 90% and is gaining in popularity every day.
Contrary to what is typically assumed, losing weight does not mean removing fat cells. During traditional weight loss through diet and exercise, the body’s fat cells shrink but stay in the body.
There is no way to do this in a targeted manner, so these weight-loss methods may not result in the fat reduction that we want. Stubborn fat deposits, like the ones often found in the love handles, flanks, and abdomen, resist these methods.
SculpSure, on the other hand, is a way to specifically remove fat cells from these stubborn areas of the body, resulting in targeted fat reduction. Up to 24% of the fat cells in the treatment area are removed. Once a fat cell is disabled and filtered out of the body through this method, new fat cells do not replace it; this keeps the area slim and fit.
Unlike liposuction or freezing fat, SculpSure is a selective hyperthermic lipolysis process. It will not harm the surrounding tissue. SculpSure uses a 1060 nm wavelength laser, which affects fat cells without injuring the dermis. This treatment is very versatile, thanks to the design of its applicators, and can be used safely on all skin types.
The SculpSure Procedure
SculpSure is a convenient process. In only 25 minutes, multiple trouble areas of the body can be treated.
Because SculpSure is non-surgical, no anesthesia will be required for the treatment. Instead, cooling plates are placed on the target area in order to keep the skin cool and comfortable.
The SculpSure applicator then targets the fat region with concentrated heat, bringing the fat cells to a temperature between 42°C and 47°C. This disrupts the unwanted fat cells in a process called controlled hyperthermic lipolysis.
In order to help the results blend naturally, the heat from this process spreads around the applicator slightly. This is known as thermal spread. Freezing fat does not have thermal spread and therefore is prone to “step-offs” and irregularities.
As the SculpSure treatment is occurring, the patient is awake and comfortable. Patients typically feel occasional mild warming and tingling sensations.
Once the patient’s SculpSure treatment is complete, they will be free to return to their normal daily schedule, including their workday. This makes it an ideal procedure for busy professionals on their lunch breaks.
In the months following the treatment, the body is gradually filtering out the disrupted fat cells. As this occurs, patients see a volume reduction in their trouble areas. After six weeks, partial results are often evident. After twelve weeks, the removal of the cells is usually complete and the full results are achieved.
Usually, only one treatment will be needed to provide the body-contouring results patients are looking for. If more fat reduction is desired, this can be attained with the help of additional sessions.
If you feel that SculpSure treatments may be right for you, contact the office of Dr. Leonard Gray and arrange an informative consultation.
To date, we have successfully treated many areas of the body including abdomen, hips (love handles), flanks (waistline), male chests, bra roll and bra fat areas, upper arms, inner thighs, inner knee and above the knees, outer thighs, calf and above the ankle.
