With summer on the way, get ready for shorts, tank tops, and— eek… stubborn fat! Despite exercise, a healthy diet, and our best intentions, fat deposits can remain stuck in their place. SculpSure is the latest laser technology designed to remove stubborn fat deposits in as little as 25 minutes with no downtime.
Dr. Sam Sadler with Memphis Laser Clinic explains, “This is the first completely non-invasive laser technology that is FDA approved to melt fat; it’s incredible. It offers an alternative to liposuction for patients who want to get rid of stubborn fat around the belly, hips and thighs. SculpSure uses a rack of specially designed laser applicators to zap the fat in a targeted area of the body without burning the skin. Studies have shown that the treatment can result in up to 24% reduction of fat.”
“Unlike liposuction, which involves suctioning fat from the body through small incisions, it requires no anesthesia for the treatment, there’s no physical downtime and people go right back to work after the session,” says Sandra Johnson, Clinical Manager & Lead Medical Aesthetician at Memphis Laser Clinic.
At your consultation the areas to be treated will determine the number of applicators needed to achieve superior results and treatments can often be done the same day.
To begin, the areas to be treated are marked and then four applicators are placed in templates on those areas. At first, you experience a cooling sensation and then a wave of gentle heat. The cooling and heating process will alternate throughout your 25-min treatment and most clients experience these intervals as easily tolerated tingling sensations.
After your treatment, you can immediately return to work, exercise, or other daily activities. Some clients may experience mild tenderness or bruising, but can expect that it will not impact their ability to resume normal activities. During the first 10 days the body begins to eliminate and dispel the destroyed fat cells. It is recommend that you massage the treated areas for five minutes, twice a day. Results can be seen as soon as six weeks, with optimized outcomes of over 20% reduction typically seen at 12 weeks. Many patients elect to have this procedure in multiple areas to maximize their results.
How SculpSure Technology Works:
SculpSure uses selective wavelengths to heat and destroy targeted fat cells below the skin’s surface without damaging the skin. The heat generated by the laser also tightens your skin by stimulating collagen and elastin growth. Your lymphatic system naturally eliminates the destroyed fast cells over six to 12 weeks, resulting in a slimmer and healthier appearance in just one treatment.
The cost depends on the number of applicators needed to remove unwanted fat deposits. Flanks or love handles require four applicators and the abdominal area requires four to eight applicators. Flanks and the abdominal area can be treated in one visit. The number of applicators required to achieve your desired results will be determined at the consultation.
