SculpSure is a light-based body contouring technology that is designed to reduce suborn fat in problem areas like the abdomen or love handles. Now, thanks to SculpSure, you can experience a slimmer frame in minutes without any surgery or downtime.
Contrary to more dated treatments like Coolscuplting, SculpSure works by using heat in the form of light to cause fat reduction. During a short, 25 minute treatment, fat cells are heated to a temperature between 42 and 47 degrees Celsius. This eventually damages and destroys them. Over a period of weeks, your body naturally eliminates the disrupted fat cells, leaving you with a smoother, more contoured frame. While the abdomen and flanks (sides) are the most common areas to be treated, the SculpSure applicators can be placed on many areas including the thighs, arms and back.
During a SculpSure treatment, up to four separate applicators are held against the skin with straps. A feeling of warmth or deep heating is typically experienced along with simultaneous cooling to maximize comfort. While most patients will tolerate treatment easily, energy levels can be adjusted as needed.
One 25 minute SculpSure treatment is enough to cause a reduction in fat and flatten a bulging area. Depending on the thickness of the area and the desired degree of fat reduction, more treatments may be necessary to achieve your ideal result.
Patients are able to return to their normal daily activities (including exercise) immediately after treatment. Mild swelling and mild tenderness is common after treatment. Some patients may also experience firmness in the treated area which subsides over the next several weeks. Results from SculpSure are typically seen in six weeks.
