SculpSure Vs. Other Fat Removal Technologies

Question: I am interested in fat removal of my stomach, thighs and flanks. There are several other devices like CoolSculpt, Vanquish and Verju that permanently remove fat and are non-invasive, just like SculpSure. How is the SculpSure that you offer better than the other devices that have been on the market longer?
Answer: What’s important to remember is that while there are many non-invasive fat removal devices on the market, only a few can remove fat permanently. Of these few, the only one I know of that permanently reduces fat and simultaneously tightens the overlying skin is SculpSure.
When considering all current methods of fat reduction, whether it’s surgical liposuction or non-invasive fat removal, many patients are not made aware that when fat is removed, it can leave loose skin. If you are 35 or under, the loose skin tends to retain it’s elasticity and snaps back to conform to the newly contoured shape.
However, in patients over the age of 35, the chances that your overlying skin will snap back is lower. Many people over the age of 35 to 40 who have excess fat should discuss the issue of what will happen to their skin after fat removal. Failure to address the skin component can result in an unsatisfactory outcome or even make you look worse than before the procedure, requiring additional unexpected, corrective procedures.
SculpSure is a game-changer, not only because up to 4 treatment areas can be done in 25 minutes with no pain or downtime, but because it combines permanent fat reduction with skin tightening.
