How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that works by using hyperthermic lasers to penetrate and heat subcutaneous fat cells to 107.6 and 116.6°F, “melting” the fat away while simultaneously cooling the top layer of skin for a soothing effect. Using the SculpSure technology, up to 24% of treated fat cells are destroyed without the use of surgery, anesthesia or incisions.
During the treatment, one or more SculpSure applicators are used (depending on the treatment area) and adhered to your skin with straps. The treatment is not painful and does not interrupt the skin’s surface . After fat cells are destroyed, they then pass through your body’s lymphatic system over the next three months, where they are permanently removed. While your skin is heated, collagen production increases, which helps tighten the skin and decrease potential sagging.
There is no post-treatment downtime. After the treatment is finished, you can go about your normal daily activities.
How long will results last?
FOREVER! Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate. Unlike dieting or exercising which can shrink fat cells, SculpSure permanently removes them from the body. You will not need any “maintenance” treatments in the future.
What areas can be treated with WarmSculpt with SculpSure?
SculpSure is excellent for body contouring and improving definition of the stomach, love handles, back, thighs and area under the chin. Unlike CoolSculpting, you do not need “pinch-able” fat to be present in the targeted area; it is effective for targeting even the smallest trouble areas.
Does SculpSure work on everyone?
SculpSure works well on both men and women and is an effective fat reduction treatment for a range of body types. SculpSure is a great complement to people who lead a healthy lifestyle but still have trouble areas that seem resistant to diet and exercise.
What should I expect during the SculpSure treatment?
During the 25-minute treatment, most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently which is generally well-tolerated. Many times, a feeling of warmth is experienced which some patients find to be relaxing. Depending on the area you are treating, you may sit or lay down in the exam chair. During the treatment, you are free to read a magazine, be on your phone or even take a nap.
Why choose SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting?
While both SculpSure and CoolSculpting are non-invasive body contouring treatments that involve the elimination of fat cells, there are some differences that may make one treatment better than the other for reaching your goals.
Both treatments effectively destroy subcutaneous fat cells, but one uses heat, SculpSure, while the other uses freezing, CoolSculpting, to address stubborn problem areas. CoolSculpting is ideal for areas that contain pinch-able areas of unwanted fat due to the type of applicator being used during the treatment while SculpSure is effective for areas that contain less fat deposits.
If you are someone who is in good shape and works out consistently but are still not seeing desired results, SculpSure may be the right treatment for you as it does not require an excess of unwanted fat.
Are there side effects to WarmSculpt SculpSure?
SculpSure is FDA-approved and generally considered a safe treatment, effective treatment when done by an experienced, qualified medical aesthetician. Undergoing WarmSculpt is quick and easy, with no downtime involved.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, two treatments are required to meet your desired goals. During your complimentary consultation, our medical aestheticians will advise you on how many treatments are recommended for your specific needs.
When will I see results from WarmSculpting with SculpSure?
Patients may start to see results as early as six weeks following the treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.
