Winter is here, and you’re likely in holiday mode. Preparations may leave you little time to exercise. You may feel like you move from one eating event to the next.
If you’re at a healthy weight but have areas of stubborn fat that only seem to be accentuated by the holidays, a body contouring appointment could help you better fit into your clothes without unsightly bulges.
Dr. Kenneth Thompson with A Beautiful You Medical Spa has selected SculpSure®, a leading body contouring system to help patients reduce or eliminate fat deposits that haven’t come off with diet and exercise.
How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure is a noninvasive laser treatment. We place pads called applicators on the treatment areas, and we can target more than one area at the same time — a great benefit of SculpSure not available with other body contouring systems.
After we secure the applicators in place and we turn on the laser, you feel alternating cool and warm sensations. The laser heat energy increases the temperature of the targeted fat cells to approximately 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
Don’t worry: The SculpSure system has an automatic cooling system so your surface skin doesn’t get too hot and isn’t damaged. The heat energy destroys the integrity of the fat cells, and they’re eventually absorbed by your lymph system.
What areas of the body can be treated with SculpSure?
We perform SculpSure treatments on the following areas:
- Abdomen (belly fat)
- Flanks (love handles at the sides of your waist)
- Back fat
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Fat under the chin
Benefits of SculpSure versus other body contouring systems
SculpSure has many benefits. You’ll love the convenience and your results.
Quick in-office procedure
The SculpSure treatment is only 25 minutes, which is much shorter than other body contouring systems, which take an hour or more. You can have a treatment done during your lunch hour.
No downtime, unlike surgery
Surgical body contouring involves needles, stitches, blood, and wounds. SculpSure is noninvasive. There are no needles or wounds that have to heal. You can go about your day after the procedure.
Mild, temporary side effects
You may experience some swelling or tenderness in the areas that have been treated. That’s normal. It dissipates within a week or two after your procedure.
Patient satisfaction rate
In clinical studies reported at the annual American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery conferences, the patient satisfaction rate ranged from 83-100%.
How much fat is eliminated, and when will I see results?
You may see up to a 24% reduction in fat in the targeted areas. Your clothes are going to fit better in places where there were bulges.
