What Is SculpSure®?
The SculpSure® procedure uses a non-invasive laser to contour the body by reducing fat stores. It is designed to help qualifying patients get a slimmer appearance without surgery or downtime. The technology aims to destroy the fat cells in the treatment area.
Who Is a Candidate?
SculpSure® is a great choice for many people with trouble spots of fat that don’t respond to their diet and exercise efforts. Candidates for the treatment are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and results.
What Body Areas Can It Treat?
SculpSure® may be used to address stubborn fat stores in the inner and outer thighs, back, abdomen, and love handles. It can even reduce fat under the chin, minimizing the appearance of a double chin.
How Does SculpSure® Work?
The laser energy heats the fat cells underneath the skin, but the surface of the skin is not affected. The device safely raises the temperature of the fat cells, and that increase in temperature destroys their structural integrity. Once the cells are damaged, they are naturally processed by the body and eliminated via the body’s lymphatic system.
You may feel a cooling sensation when the treatment first starts. This built-in cooling mechanism stays active during the entire procedure to keep the skin surface cool and comfortable during the treatment. While the laser is engaged, patients may feel some warmth during the procedure and may even feel a slight tingling sensation. Most patients generally report that the procedure is well-tolerated.
What Are the Results Like?
It’s important to note that results vary from patient to patient. The fat elimination process can take time. Some patients begin to see results after multiple weeks. However, it can take months. Most patients benefit from a series of SculpSure® treatments. Since each patient is different and has different needs, we offer customized treatments to meet patients’ desired goals.
If you’ve tried everything and still have those stubborn fat deposits in your thighs, abdomen, and other areas, consider SculpSure® treatments at Tampa Bay Plastic Surgery, Inc. in Tampa, FL. We would be more than happy to help you determine if this treatment can work for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and get started!
