SculpSure is a unique and revolutionary FDA-approved non-invasive laser body-contouring treatment. This procedure is aimed at reducing fat with the help of laser technology, especially in the stubborn body parts like the flanks and abdomen. The process used for fat reduction is called lipolysis. This painless non-invasive procedure is ideal for those who have been delaying cosmetic treatment for fat reduction due to a fear of surgery.
A suitable candidate for SculpSure is one who has good overall health. Usually, candidates are people who have been unsuccessful in reducing fat through exercise and healthy eating and have a BMI (body mass index) that crosses 30.
How It Works
The SculpSure fat-reduction procedure requires the use of a laser device that works on the regulated temperature principle (hypothermic injury to fat cells).
For the SculpSure procedure, your physician will attach cooling plates to your abdomen (or other body area that requires fat reduction). The laser will penetrate the skin and heat the fat cells in the specific area. SculpSure is designed for destroying fat cells so that a certain amount of fat can be permanently eliminated from your body. The degree of heat can be customized depending on the desired goals of the patient.
With SculpSure, the specific affinity of the 1060 nm wavelength for adipose tissue, along with minimal dermis absorption, allows efficient treatment of stubborn fat areas within 25 minutes. Your body will naturally begin to eliminate the damaged fat cells over a period of time after the treatment. You may be able to see the results within six weeks after undergoing the SculpSure procedure. The final results are typically noticeable after 12 weeks.
Benefits of SculpSure
Here are some of the major advantages of the SculpSure fat-reduction technique:
1. Safe for sensitive skin
During the SculpSure fat-reduction procedure, the skin of the patient is cooled using a cooling applicator while the fat cells are heated. This makes it a highly safe procedure for even those patients who have sensitive skin that is prone to heat-related reactions and allergies.
2. Quick and efficient with no downtime
Four distinct applicator heads are simultaneously used by the SculpSure device. These allow the device to target four separate parts of the body with a single application. One of the biggest advantages of the SculpSure fat-reduction procedure is that it does not involve any downtime or recovery period. This makes it the perfect treatment for all those people who lead very busy lives and don’t have sufficient time for comprehensive plastic surgeries and routine exercise sessions.
SculpSure is a completely non-invasive cosmetic procedure. This means that you can feel very comfortable during the treatment without having to worry about any pain or major discomfort.
Like all other fat-reduction techniques, SculpSure is not aimed at weight loss; it is simply a fat-removal procedure. This means you can get rid of stubborn inches from areas like the flanks and the abdomen.
