Stubborn pockets of fat are a nuisance to deal with, especially when you’ve worked hard to reach your ideal weight. Where surgery was once the only way to get rid of excess fat, today there are non-invasive options available too, and SculpSure is one of the most effective.
SculpSure is an FDA-approved laser system that is designed to destroy excess fat cells on the thighs, stomach, back, arms and chin using controlled heat. Since the heat that’s produced is feathered, there is no risk of dimpling or dents after treatment. The heat also stimulates collagen, which improves skin laxity and texture at the same time.
What Happens During a SculpSure Laser Treatment?
During your SculpSure Laser treatment, holders will be placed on the area that you want to treat. Once the system is activated, patients can expect to feel heat as well as a cooling sensation, which is what makes the treatments comfortable.
The number of applicators that are applied to the body will depend on the size of the area being treated but the average treatment doesn’t last longer than 30 minutes.
As the applicators heat up, it also raises the temperature of the fat cells, which destroys their structural integrity. Over the next few weeks, the fat cells will be eliminated via the body’s lymphatic system.
In most cases, patients can expect to achieve at least a 20% reduction in unwanted fat after every session.
