Even with diet and exercise, we all have those stubborn areas of fat that we feel just won’t budge. SculpSure is the very first FDA cleared, non-invasive laser platform for permanent fat reduction. That means, there is no invasive surgery and no down time. SculpSure works by heating up the fat cells above a threshold temperature to which they are no longer viable, while, at the same time, the plates act to cool the skin and keep it comfortable while the heat is concentrated and delivered directly to the adipose (fat) cells. The body then clears away the damaged fat cells on its own. Because of the unique design, you can treat an entire abdomen or love handles in as little as 25 minutes; a fraction of the time of a single CoolSculpting session.
Yes! The 25 minute procedure eliminates approximately 20-25% of the fat cells in the targeted area.
Most patients express feeling a tingling sensation during the treatment. The process involves a cycle of 20 seconds of heating with 10 seconds of cooling. The procedure is generally well tolerated and you can return to normal activities immediately afterwards.
The treatment protocol for optimal results is 2 sessions on the targeted treatment are that are about 4 weeks apart. This “Treat-to-Complete” protocol will help you best achieve the 25% fat reduction. For some who desire an even more substantial result, additional treatments can be discussed to determine if they would benefit your targeted area.
Patient begin to see results at 4 weeks after their first treatment. However, the optimal, 20-25% reduction in fat, are seen around 8-12 weeks.
The number of fat cells in your body remain relatively constant throughout your adult life. When you go on a diet, the size of the fat cells shrink. However, you still have those cells. If you were to stop your healthy lifestyle, the fat cells will grow in size and you would no longer have a thin appearance.
With SculpSure, the fat cells are eliminated. That means, in the same scenario as above, if you were to stop following a healthy lifestyle, the fat cells could not re-expand because they no longer exist. However, it is possible for fat cells in other, non-treated, areas to expand. After treatment, if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, your results will remain permanent.
Both devices offer similar results of about 20-25% fat reduction. Additionally, both require an average of 4 applicators to treat the abdomen thus making a comparison fairly simple. However, this is where the similarities end.
Your first step is to call (1-866-MED-1-SPA) for a consultation. During the consultation, it will be determined whether or not you are a candidate for the SculpSure procedure. If you are a candidate, pictures will be taken and your treatment plan will be mapped out. This will help to ensure that on the day of your treatment, you can just walk in and get started with your treatment!
