Even when individuals are able to lose weight through a healthy diet and get toned through exercise, many are still not entirely happy with the shape of their bodies.
Some of this dissatisfaction may stem from stubborn pockets of fat on the abdomen, thighs, back, and even under the chin.
Fortunately, patients can attain the definition and contours they desire with SculpSure. This method of non-surgical fat reduction in Washington DC eliminates bulges and sculpts the body in a 25-minute session. Best of all, it has zero downtime.
What Is SculpSure?
Approved by the FDA in 2015, SculpSure is a body contouring device that uses lasers to heat and destroy fat cells. Unlike surgical fat reduction, this treatment does not require any incisions, anesthesia, or recovery.
In fact, many aesthetic experts believe that SculpSure is a practical and easy way for patients to treat diet and exercise resistant fat and then return to their busy lives.
Who’s a good candidate for non-surgical fat reduction?
SculpSure is cleared to reduce fat on the abdomen, love handles, thighs, back, and chin. The ideal candidate has a body mass index less than 30 and is at a fairly stable weight.
Many patients that are interested in SculpSure have tried other ways to slim and shape these areas of their body to no avail.
They are excited that they can now achieve their goals with a quick and painless treatment and see results in a few of weeks.
How Is SculpSure performed?
To start, individuals are fitted with a belt containing laser applicators that focus precise thermal energy on subcutaneous fat cells.
Once the device is secured to the treatment area, the patient stays in a reclined position for 25 minutes and will experience a sensation of warmth or stinging.
Additionally, a cooling mechanism within the applicator improves patient comfort and protects the skin and surrounding structures from heat.
When will patients note results?
SculpSure can reduce up to 24 percent of fat cells after one treatment. Changes can be noted as soon as six weeks, and results peak at 12 weeks. Some patients may benefit from a second session to the same area.
