Want to get rid of that hard-to-lose fat around your abdomen and flank areas? Look no further than SculpSure, an innovative technology developed by Cynosure. Per Cynosure’s website, “SculpSure is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis of the flanks and abdomen. It’s a state-of-the-art, controlled light-based technology, ideal for patients looking to get rid of stubborn fat.”
How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure works when paddles are placed on the target area to melt away subcutaneous fat. This process sculpts and defines areas where it’s difficult to lose fat. Once the fat cells are melted away, they are permanently removed from the body. Visceral fat, the fat the protects your organs, is left untouched.
What can I expect during a SculpSure treatment?
The goal is to “treat to complete” with SculpSure by getting rid of up to 25 percent of the subcutaneous fat per treatment from that treatment area. Though some only need one treatment to see the results they desire, most need two.
SculpSure treatments are very comfortable and tolerable because the process transmits waves of heat and coolness onto the patient’s skin. Treatment time is only 25 minutes and there’s no downtime, so you can even stop in on your lunch break for a treatment.
What’s the difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting?
There are two major differences between CoolSculpting and SculpSure that you need to be aware of. First, CoolSculpting is FDA approved, but unlike SculpSure, it never received an indication from the FDA–an indication is important and indicates that the device is effective in what it was created to treat; in other words, it’s been proven to work.
Second, CoolSculpting works by sucking tissue into a suction cup, which can leave divets in the skin, similar to lipo-suction. SculpSure, on the other hand, uses heat to melt away fat, leaving a much smoother appearance.
SculpSure is Not Weight Loss.
SculpSure is fat loss, not weight loss. The number of fat cells we’re born with doesn’t change over time. However, when you gain or lose weight, the size of your fat cells change. With SculpSure, fat cells are eliminated for good–you’ll be more sculpted, but you won’t necessarily lose weight. Also, if you do gain weight, you’ll gain weight in the deeper layer of fat cells because the superficial layer has been removed with the SculpSure process.
