SculpSure is an FDA approved non-invasive fat reduction device that uses a controlled light based technology. SculpSure generates a synthetic form of apoptosis (cell death) by raising the cell temperature between 42 C to 47 C, thereby lowering the levels of fat cells in a particular area, followed by a cooling cycle. Over time the body naturally eliminates the disrupted fat cells and results can be seen in 12 weeks.
The procedure takes approximately 25 minutes and is minimally painful (think an alternating blast of heat on skin followed by a cooling sensation). There is no downtime but you may feel tender for a week post treatment. The majority of the body can be treated including the stomach, flanks, love handles, inner and outer thighs and bingo wings. Patients will see results from six weeks following the treatment, as the body starts to flush the fat cells from the body but results may take up to 12 weeks. 2-4 sessions are required for optimal results.
SculpSure is a great alternative to the more invasive surgical liposuction and particularly good for treating stubborn areas of fat that can’t be targeted through healthy diet and exercise alone. While you may require more than one session, the fat cells that are killed off in the process are permanently destroyed.
