You’ve tried everything. You’ve eaten paleo, gluten-free, keto friendly. You’ve attended enough spin classes to bike around the world. But you still have stubborn fat.
It may be on your thighs, under your chin, or those pesky “love handles,” but it’s there regardless of how hard you work. It’s more than discouraging.
But now there’s hope. A new treatment has been approved by the FDA that has beauty pundits talking. It’s called SculpSure and it is taking the world by storm.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a non-invasive procedure designed to eliminate fat cells from specific areas of the body. During the procedure, the doctor places a metal plate over the desired area. The plate cools the skin, keeping it comfortable, while lasers target specific cells. The lasers heat fat cells to a point high enough to kill the fat cell, but leaves skin and muscle cells healthy.
How SculpSure compares to other procedures
SculpSure has a wide range of advantages over procedures such as Liposuction or coolsculpting. First of all, unlike liposuction, SculpSure is completely non-invasive. So there is little to no risk of infection or scarring.
Both liposuction and coolsculpting tend to attack larger groups of fat cells. This can leave dimples or uneven areas of fat removal. SculpSure uses lasers to pinpoint the areas of unwanted fat.
This gives the doctor greater control over which fat cells to target. The doctor can feather the cell removal to give users a natural look.
No “down time”
Because it’s non-invasive, there is no down time with SculpSure. You can get a treatment and be back to normal activities as soon as you leave the office. There is rarely any sign of the procedure on the skin. But if there is any bruising or swelling, it disappears within 24 hours.
SculpSure has additional benefits for the skin. Liposuction leaves scarring, and coolsculpting can damage the top layers of skin, leaving it dry and uncomfortable.
But SculpSure treats fat cells and skin differently. The cooling plate isn’t as cold as the coolsculpting device, so it doesn’t leave the skin damaged and chapped.
Because the process uses both cooling and heat, it stimulates the production of collagen. This supports the skin over the treated area, keeping the skin fresh and taut. It also reduces the risk of sagging skin as the fat cells disappear.
We have all seen when someone’s look changes suddenly and dramatically. There are whispers that he or she has had a “procedure.” But SculpSure handles the results better.
After the treatment, it takes the body some time to get rid of the dead cells. The affected area shrinks slowly over six to twelve weeks, depending on the targeted area.
This makes the change more gradual and natural. People may see the result, but no one will know how you got it.
