SculpSure offers another way to contour the body without surgery
- Posted on: Jan 30 2022
At the practice of Dr. Daniel S. Tresley, men and women in the area of Northbrook, IL can have a variety of procedures performed for the face. However, there are other parts of the body that he can also help in treating with treatments such as his popular SculpSure treatment.
What is SculpSure?
The SculpSure procedure is a non-invasive treatment that is used for permanent fat reduction. IT uses a nonsurgical device cleared by the FDA to heat fat cells in the body to break them down through a process known as apoptosis. In as little as 20 minutes, patients can address up to four zones throughout the body, targeting areas where stubborn fat may reside. With the SculpSure treatment, patients will see up to 24% fat reduction in the treated area, which remains permanent.
How does it work?
The SculpSure uses a special applicator that emits laser energy. It heats the tissues and then cools the area to destroy fat permanently. It is typically used on areas such as the flanks (“muffin top”) and stomach, where any discomfort is well-tolerated. Patients may choose to take over-the-counter pain medication before they arrive at the office for their treatment if they are having more sensitive areas treated such as the inner thighs.
What is recovery like after SculpSure treatment?
With SculpSure, there is no surgery, so there is no downtime! Patients typically return to their normal, daily activities immediately after their appointment. This makes the SculpSure treatment beneficial for patients who do not have extra vacation time or sick days to take away from work to have more invasive procedures performed on their body. SculpSure allows for fast return to normalcy while eliminating surgical recovery and risks of infection.
