SculpSure has become the ideal treatment for those who want to sculpt the body by eliminating stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Common areas include the lower tummy, love handles, thighs, back, and double chin. SculpSure has become a favorite among men and women for its dramatic, natural-looking results without any strenuous exercising or dangerous surgeries.
How Does it Work?
In a nutshell, SculpSure is an FDA-cleared fat loss procedure that’s completely noninvasive. That means there’s no scary needles involved, no need to go under the knife, and no need for risky anesthesia. Instead, patients can contour their bodies and eliminate fat in a way that looks deceivingly natural and undetectable by others.
Here’s how it works: during the SculpSure treatment, the machine utilizes light-based energy to target and destroy fat cells. After a rapid 25 minute session, that’s it! This laser technology raises the heat on the stubborn fat cells, effectively killing 24% of treated fat cells without surgery. The patient can go home or go back to work and resume their normal daily activities. Over the next 12 weeks, the body begins to naturally eliminate these injured fat cells through the lymphatic system. This gradual fat loss gives the outward impression that weight is being lost naturally. The body begins to show noticeable results as quickly as 6 weeks, although the full results are attained 12 weeks after the first treatment. While results are visible after the first session, most patients require several treatments to get the results they’ve dreamed of.
What Can I Expect?
After choosing an area to target, like the pockets of fat around the lower abdomen or stubborn love handles, the SculpSure applicators will be positioned on these areas so the patient can start his or her treatment. Once it starts, you can expect a cooling sensation at the beginning which increases the comfort. Then throughout the quick 25-minute session, it’s normal to feel tingling and deep warmth while the light-based energy targets permanently destroy the fat cells under the skin. This targeted laser energy is able to successfully heat and treat the unwanted fat cells without causing physical damage to the skin.
SculpSure not only offers a safe alternative to surgery but is virtually painless, and requires no recovery downtime. If you are interested in learning more or scheduling a consultation, please call us at Personique On The Spot in Austin, TX today at 512-599-8672.
