Body contouring with the SculpSure® system allows patients to eliminate fat without surgery. This treatment works well for areas like the love handles. Dr. Cynthia Frazier at Anti-Aging by the Sea in Southport, North Carolina offers SculpSure to people who are looking for a non-invasive way to address stubborn fat deposits.
The SculpSure system is a non-surgical way to achieve fat loss. The SculpSure device focuses on the fat cells beneath the skin. Laser light is directed into the fat cells to cause agitation to the cell walls. This destroys the cells and your body will naturally flush them out over the next few 6-12 weeks.
SculpSure is FDA approved for use in the abdomen and flanks. While those are the most popular areas for SculpSure treatment, there are many other areas that can be treated as well.
Body contouring with SculpSure is best for patients who want to eliminate specific fat deposits on their body. It's best if patients are already at a healthy body weight when they have body contouring. This type of fat loss can make a major difference in appearance, but it's meant for fat spot removal in problem areas rather than major weight loss.
SculpSure is a highly effective way to permanently reduce fat deposits. As much as 24% of all existing fat cells in a single treatment area can be destroyed in a single SculpSure session. Further treatments can allow for even more fat removal.
The SculpSure treatment sessions take less than 30 minutes in most cases. If multiple areas are being treated, it can take longer.
The results take some time, but most people see a change at about 6 weeks post-treatment. By the 12 week mark, the full effects of the body contouring treatment can be seen.
One of the major advantages of body contouring with SculpSure is that no downtime is needed. With surgical liposuction, it can take weeks to recover, but with SculpSure fat removal patients can return to their daily life immediately.
