Do you have stubborn deposits of body fat that, no matter how hard you exercise or how long you diet, never seem to go away? Do you want the look of a lean, sculpted body, but without the downtime of traditional liposuction? You may be an excellent candidate for a procedure called SculpSure body contouring.
SculpSure body contouring is different from traditional liposuction because it works outside of the skin, without ever having to make an incision. SculpSure can be done in about 25 minutes per session, and you can be awake during treatment. Best of all, it’s virtually painless! Most patients only feel a slight cooling sensation at first, with intermittent patterns of warmth or tingling throughout the procedure.
After your SculpSure treatment is over, there’s no down time – you can go about your day as if nothing has changed, with no restrictions to your activities following treatment. You can go swimming, go to the gym or go back to the office without missing a beat. There are no incisions, no drains and no stitches required.
What areas can be treated with SculpSure?
SculpSure is a great option for the thighs, abdomen, love handles, back and even under the chin. Most patients require several treatments, but the number of treatments will vary depending on the area of the body and the amount of fat you would like to eliminate. Most patients will begin to notice a reduction in body fat in the targeted areas within about six weeks of their first treatment, with optimal results appearing around 12 weeks post treatment.
How often should I get SculpSure?
You should wait a minimum of six weeks between SculpSure treatments to the same area, but for best results, we prefer you wait at least 12 weeks. This is because if you end up waiting the full 12 weeks, you may realize you don’t need a second treatment at all! Most patients will require at least two treatments in any given area. Each SculpSure treatment can kill up to 24 percent of the fat cells in a targeted area, so the most any given area will require is about four treatments to eliminate every fat cell.
It is also important to note that you do not need to wait a specific amount of time to treat unrelated areas. So, for example, if you get your chin done on Monday you are free to return to have your thighs done on Tuesday as long as you tolerated your first treatment well.
How long will my results last?
SculpSure results last forever! That’s because with SculpSure, you are killing the fat cells in a targeted area. This means that these cells will not come back – they are gone forever, so you should not need to treat them again.
