Does it seem like no matter how many times you work out, and no matter how many times you change your diet, there are still trouble spots that cling to your belly, thighs, or other places? Have you done everything possible to get slimmer only to find the last few pounds are impossible to lose? If this sounds like you, we now have a revolutionary new technique called SculpSure specifically designed to target those stubborn deposits of subcutaneous fat. You can get it now when you call the friendly medical professionals at Le Reve Skincare & Laser Center in Fort Worth, TX.
Why Do We Accumulate Stubborn Fat?
There are many reasons that we can wind up with extra fat deposits even if we diet and exercise. For many of us, subcutaneous fat cells can get stored all in one place. Rather than being evenly distributed, an increased amount often winds up on the belly or the thighs because of our genetics, and that poses a challenge for anyone who wants a slimmer look and tight skin.
These deposits can be particularly difficult to burn off simply by exercise. Although it’s possible to burn fat with diet and exercise, these measures won’t actually get rid of the cells themselves. Stubborn fat cells will become smaller when their fat stores are used for energy, but they will still exist under the skin unless they are removed or flushed out of the system.
Earlier Fat-Elimination Techniques
Medical professionals have tried many techniques to eliminate this stubborn fat for their patients. Most people are familiar with liposuction: a form of surgery that physically removes fat cells from the patient by use of an incision and a small tube. Although this has helped many people, not everyone wants to have such an invasive surgery in order to get rid of their belly fat. Fortunately, modern science has helped us find newer and gentler ways of accomplishing the same basic goal through the use of laser technology.
How Is SculpSure Different?
This is a breakthrough laser treatment that uses heat energy to target the fat cells that live just underneath your skin. The wavelength of the laser is specially designed to bypass the skin itself and affect only the walls of the fat cells. When these fat cells are exposed to the heat energy, the cell walls are ruptured, initiating a process called lipolysis. During lipolysis, the fat cells break down and are eventually flushed out by the body. The result is slimmer, sculpted skin.
Because of the way that this treatment works, there is no need for an extensive recovery period, no incisions, and no scarring. Ideally, patients seeking this treatment will be near to their goal weight, as it is considered more of a body contouring and sculpting treatment than a major weight-loss program. But it can be the perfect answer for anyone who is trying to eliminate those last few holdouts of stubborn fat, and the benefits are simply incredible.
What Are the Benefits of SculpSure?
Why get this treatment instead of the other body contouring options that are currently on the market? What makes this one so special? It’s true that this technique is gaining in popularity since its recent introduction to the world of body sculpting, but there isn’t just one reason. Here are a few of the many reasons people love it:
The Treatment Sessions Are Quick
Other fat-reduction techniques can take multiple hours to complete. In the case of a SculpSure treatment session, you can be finished in just 25 minutes. This is all the time that is required to trigger the lipolysis process. After this, the fat cells will begin to break down, and your body will begin to flush them out of your system. You can be in and out of the skincare center in less than an hour.
You Won’t Need to Undergo Anesthesia
With incision surgeries, many patients often have to get some form of anesthetic depending on the location and the scale of their treatment. However, the heat energy approach avoids the need for this as well. If you have allergies to anesthesia or even just a dislike of the feeling, you’re in luck: with SculpSure, you won’t need it.
Patients Often Just Need One Treatment Session
This can vary from patient to patient. Sometimes, a patient will need two or possibly three sessions in order to achieve their ideal results, but this depends on the size and locations of their treatment area (or areas). For many people, one session will be all that it takes.
The Fat Cells Are Permanently Eliminated
By using our heat energy laser, we are able to break down the fat cells completely. The body then begins the process of removing them over the next several weeks. The process is somewhat slower than liposuction, but it is also gentler in the long run.
No Downtime Is Required
Unlike many treatment sessions that require recovery period and even rest in bed, you don’t have to wait to resume your regular daily activities or be extra careful because of a healing incision. After your visit to our center, you can do whatever you had already planned. You can even go right back to work if you’ve had the treatment during a lunch break.
You Won’t Have to Deal With Scarring
With any incision operations, there is always the risk of leftover scars as a result of your treatment. SculpSure is a non-surgical, non-invasive technique, and the laser that we use won’t harm your skin or your underlying muscle tissue. The wavelength is designed to target fat cells only.
What Should You Expect From Your Treatment?
This is a very simple process in terms of your time commitment and the amount that you need to do. The majority of the work is done right up front, at the very beginning, with a consultation and your treatment session. The majority of the results come after the session, where we wait for the body to eliminate the damaged fat cells.
Before moving ahead with the treatment, it’s necessary to meet for a one-on-one meeting with a member of our staff. We make sure that we understand your needs and personal goals and any concerns you might have. During this time, you can ask any questions you like. The staff will confirm important details about your medical history and medications in order to ensure that this treatment is right for you.
With this treatment, there is almost no preparation needed. During the consultation, we may advise that you temporarily cease or cut back using certain medications or give other particular advice to help keep you comfortable during your session.
During the treatment session, patients are typically lying down in a comfortable position. The machine has four applicators that can be attached to the patient like a belt, specifically over the treatment areas.
We use a light-based diode laser with a 1060nm wavelength. When this laser is turned on, it causes your subcutaneous fat to warm. The temperature of these cells increases to between 107.6º and 116.6º Fahrenheit. This is warmer than your body temperature but not hot enough to burn or damage your skin. During treatment, many patients relax, rest, or even read.
During the 25-minute session, you may notice an occasional change in temperature. The applicators have a cooling device inside them, and this protects you from any excessive amount of heat and accounts for the fluctuation between warm and cool sensations that you may feel. After the session is over, you can resume your daily activities; and the process of lipolysis will have begun.
There is no downtime, so you will be free to go about your day. During the next 12 weeks, your fat cells will gradually be flushed from the treatment area through your body’s lymphatic system. The fat cells will exit your body through the bloodstream, leaving a sculpted surface in their wake.
After the treatment session, all you need is time to see the changes start to take place. Patients typically report seeing visible results after 6 weeks have passed, and the final results will be seen at around 12 weeks. Results vary from person to person, but as much as 24% of the fat cells in a treated area can be destroyed from just one session.
Can I Treat Any Areas I Want?
Typically, patients will treat the abdominal region, sides, thighs, or back. These are the locations most likely to store those pockets of difficult fat.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Very often, patients will only need one session. It is possible to get more, depending on the treatment areas and your body’s response to the initial session, but it is usually not necessary to have more than three.
Is This FDA-Approved?
The FDA has cleared this technique as safe for use for all of the typical treatment areas listed above.
Will My Results Only Be Temporary?
Results of this treatment are actually permanent, as the treated fat cells have been completely destroyed. Of course, the body is still capable of growing new fat cells, so it is wise to observe healthy nutrition habits after your treatment, but the old fat cells are permanently gone.
Who Can Get This Treatment?
The best candidates are people who are trying to eliminate resistant stubborn fat, especially if they have had trouble doing so through other methods. As a result, they are frequently at their goal weight or close to it. They might be also looking for something that is non-invasive and will not require them to spend a long time recovering.
Due to the areas that are often treated, and the nature of the laser treatment, the treatment is not ideal for women who are pregnant or who think they may be pregnant.
