Some individuals will have issues removing pockets of fat from sensitive and prominent locations on their body, even after diet and exercise. We recommend SculpSure®, an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that targets and eliminates stubborn fat cells. The procedure is painless, produces no redness, and takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
How Does SculpSure Work?
SculpSure uses a high-energy laser to heat up targeted fat cells from 107 to 116 ˚F. The heat generated by the laser causes the fat cells to lose structural integrity and release fat, which is slowly disposed of by the body’s lymphatic system over the course of several weeks. The release of fat is permanent and results can be seen between six and twelve months. Most patients only require a single treatment of SculpSure, but multiple procedures may be done for further fat reduction if desired.
Laser energy is used to effectively target the fat cells located beneath the skin without damaging the skin.
SculpSure increases the temperature of the fat cells to damage their structural integrity.
Over a 4-6 week period the dead fat cells are naturally released through the body’s lymphatic system.
Fat cells are then removed. The result is a slimmer more contoured body.
What is SculpSure Like?
The SculpSure procedure takes place over a 25 minute period, during which multiple areas of the body can be treated. Common areas of treatment include the buttocks, upper arms, thighs, love handles, knees, and the stomach. During the procedure, you will feel a range of heat sensations at the targeted locations, ranging from a warming sensation to an intense feeling of heat. The most extreme sensations are usually considered tolerable by patients of all ages and conditions. The attending physician or assistant will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible before and during the procedure.
