Question: I am in my 60’s, slim and mostly fit but I have some isolated fat pockets on my stomach and the sides of my waist. No matter how well I eat and how much I work out, I can’t seem to get rid of them. Liposuction is too invasive. I’ve read about SculpSure, but does it really work or do you have to keep maintaining with repeat treatments?
Answer:SculpSure is permanent fat reduction. The popular areas treated are the abdomen and flanks. But other areas including the thighs, arms, chest and upper back can also be addressed effectively.
Sculpsure is a laser device with a wavelength designed to be selective for fat removal. This selectivity of the laser enables permanent fat reduction while at the same time can prevent treatment of surrounding tissues including the internal body organs.
Another key benefit of Sculpsure is that the skin overlying the area of fat removal is also tightened during treatment. In contrast, liposuction surgery can leave loose skin which has to be treated with a separate procedure.
SculpSure works by inducing an inflammatory response within the treated fat cells over time. As a result, these fat cells die and are cleared out naturally from the body through your own lymphatic system.
Final results are typically seen 120 days after Sculpsure treatment. At this stage whatever results you have should be permanent. In other words, the fat cells that were destroyed during treatment do not return with time.
Many places use a technician for SculpSure evaluation and treatment in order to reduce their overhead costs. A thorough consultation with a plastic surgeon who is board certified and understands aging anatomy as well as the aesthetics of balance and proportion is the first step towards having a Sculpsure treatment.
