SculpSure is a fat removal method that was developed as an alternative to invasive procedures such as liposuction. When liposuction patients began seeing uneven results, doctors began searching for an alternative treatment method that not only avoided cutting the skin, but also made it easier to remove fat evenly.
In early 2010, the first non-invasive liposuction procedure was approved by the FDA. This procedure evolved into what is now SculpSure: the use of hypothermic lasers to eradicate fat cells in targeted areas.
The purpose of SculpSure is to enhance the body’s natural beauty by removing troublesome fat deposits. After the procedure, patients can lose up to 2-3 inches of fat in the targeted area within six weeks of the treatment. While the procedure is not intended to replace a nutritious diet and exercise, it is an effective way to dispel fat that frequent gym visits and dieting have left intact.
The SculpSure method aims to make fat removal an effortless and safe treatment option for health-centric patients.
How it works
SculpSure employs the use of a low-level hypothermic laser to agitate fat cells under the surface of the skin. Over the course of 25 minutes, the laser heats the fat cells, causing them to detach from body tissue. While the laser is at work, patients report feeling a heating sensation, but they do not experience pain.
Once the fat cells dislodge from body tissue, they make their way to the liver. Within a few weeks, the fat cells exit the body through a natural process of detoxification.
Why SculpSure may be better than alternative fat loss procedures
SculpSure is an inherently safer and an aesthetically more consistent procedure than traditional surgical fat loss methods.
While removing fat, SculpSure encourages the growth of collagen and elastin — substances that increase the firm, youthful appearance of skin. Unlike SculpSure, surgical procedures run the risk of eroding these collagen and elastin.
Likewise, SculpSure makes it possible to remove fat without making an incision making the recover time immediate. Surgical procedures that require an incision are not only less sanitary, but they run the risk of leaving marks on the skin that were not there prior to surgery. SculpSure keeps the skin soft and smooth.
Finally, SculpSure makes it easier to remove fat below the skin consistently. Several liposuction procedures have failed due to a rippled cottage cheese-like shape that the remaining fat takes beneath a patient’s skin. SculpSure produces consistent, firm results.
