You eat right and go to the gym regularly, but your belly, buttocks, double chin, or thighs just refuse to budge. Exercise and diet can help you lose pounds, but these strategies can’t spot reduce. You may be slimmer, but still, have pockets of fat that just won’t budge.
Enter a solution. SculpSure® laser treatments offer reduction of stubborn fat in those areas that don’t respond to conventional diet and exercise efforts. Read on to determine if this revolutionary, nonsurgical treatment is for you.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure uses a laser to apply light-based technology to contour your body. It’s FDA-cleared for treating certain areas of the body, and it’s noninvasive, meaning it requires no incisions, sutures, or blood loss.
The laser energy heats and destroys fat cells in the areas treated. It applies heat of 107.6-116.6 degrees Fahrenheit, which is enough to damage fat cells. Then your body naturally gets rid of the cells, resulting in a slimmer, more streamlined you. Although it’s effective on fat cells, the laser energy does not affect or harm your outer layer of skin.
What areas can effectively be addressed with SculpSure?
SculpSure is not about total body fat loss. It works best on those problem areas that store extra pockets of fat, particularly your love handles, thighs, abdomen, and a double chin. Research shows that up to 24% of fat in any of these given treatment areas can be destroyed for good with SculpSure.
The best candidates are men and women who live a healthy lifestyle, meaning they eat well and exercise. SculpSure isn’t for weight loss, but for body contouring.
What happens during SculpSure treatment?
Dr. Macey targets your selected areas with the SculpSure wands, which are positioned on your body. During treatment you feel alternating sensations of warmth from the laser and coolness from the built-in cooling, which keeps your skin comfortable. Patients describe feeling a slight tingling and minor discomfort, but most people tolerate it quite well. A treatment sessions lasts about 25 minutes.
When are results evident?
You may notice the area shrinking in as soon as six weeks, but optimal results usually appear in 12 weeks. Dr. Macey may recommend multiple treatments to get the ultimate look you’re after.
What makes SculpSure special?
In addition to being noninvasive and effective, it destroys fat cells – rather than simply shrinking them like happens with traditional diet and exercise. When you lose weight on the scale, the number of fat cells on your body has not changed. They have shrunk, but always have the potential to plump back up should you not exercise or eat poorly.
With SculpSure, the targeted fat cells are destroyed permanently, and they cannot expand again. Your body rids itself of these destroyed fat cells through your natural detoxifying process known as the lymphatic system.
Do I need recovery time following SculpSure treatment?
Most people go about their day right after a SculpSure session. You’re encouraged to drink plenty of water and massage the treated areas gently in the 24-36 hours following treatment. Otherwise, you have no restrictions on activity.
If you have areas of stubborn fat that won’t reduce, even with diet and exercise, consider body contouring with SculpSure. Contact Dr. Macey to schedule a session at your convenience.
