SculpSure® is a form of lipolysis that is used to remove excess fat from the hips, buttocks, and abdomen. It is a non-invasive laser procedure that has recently been approved by the FDA. Customized laser light waves are directed over specific areas of the body. The controlled light waves target each area breaking down the fat cells and contouring the hard to reach areas. With this type of laser treatment, the doctor is able to focus on areas of fat that are the hardest to get rid of, especially the areas where exercise doesn't always work. SculpSure® fine tunes and tones the most difficult areas.
While SculpSure® is non-invasive and the risk of infection is minimal, there are other side effects that can be somewhat uncomfortable. The area where the laser is used may appear red and slightly irritated. Because the light waves go deep into the tissues, this can cause bruising far below the surface of the skin. The skin irritation and tenderness to the touch should go away within a day or two. The skin irritation may last awhile longer, but will also eventually go away. The SculpSure® procedure firms and tones the skin in areas exercise can't always help. The effects of the procedure can last indefinitely if a person maintains healthy eating habits.
Individuals who have been losing weight, but seem to be having difficulty losing the excess pounds that seem to be stuck in the hard to reach areas of the abdomen, hips, and lower back. Because the SculpSure® procedure is able to target very precise areas, fine tuning the tissues in and around the area. It can take up to six months for the final results to begin to show. Until the skin eventually smoothes out, small dimples may be present. The dimpling occurs as the fat cells are being broken down. Once the fat is gone, the skin will begin to look more firm and resilient. The SculpSure® procedure is capable of working on very small, confined areas. This is perfect for individuals who only have a small amount of weight left to lose.
