Using Sculpsure for body sculpting improvements
- Posted on: Oct 15 2020
While eating right and exercising can help you maintain a healthy body weight and overall general health and wellness, it may not be effective in addressing pockets of unwanted fat in specific areas of the body. Adult men and women seeking a more strategic, targeted way to improve body contours may want to ask our surgeon about the benefits of minimally-invasive procedures such as Sculpsure.
What is Sculpsure and how does it work?
Our provider describes Sculpsure as a laser emergency treatment used to target specific areas of the body where unwanted fat has developed. Instead of using liposuction to manually remove unwanted fat from the midsection, this procedure uses laser energy instead. Sculpsure has been cleared by the FDA to melt away areas of fat without the associated downtime and invasive surgery used in liposuction or tummy tucks. This makes it a wonderful option for patients seeking a comfortable, effective way to trim the midsection without taking extensive time off of work and social activities. The laser energy used in the Sculpsure device penetrates deep into the skin without harming the surrounding area and damages fat cells in the targeted area. These damaged fat cells die and the body will naturally flush them out through the lymphatic system. The result is gradual enhancement of the treated area without ever undergoing the surgeon’s knife.
Where can Sculpsure be used?
While the more common area of treatment is the midsection to address abdominal fat and love handles, Sculpsure can also be used in the following trouble spots:
- Underneath the chin
- On the back (bra fat)
- Upper thighs
Will Sculpsure help me lose weight?
Sculpsure is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss option, and should be treated as such. The best candidates for this procedure are those within their ideal weight but are bothered by stubborn areas of fat deposits.
