A lot of people struggle with pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to exercise and diet. You’ve probably heard of CoolSculpting, Strawberry lasers, and Zerona as some methods that can help you break down fat cells, but did you know that SculpSure is one of the non-invasive procedures to reduce your problem areas?
This body sculpting treatment can help you make the most of your exercise regimen and diet by cutting down stubborn areas of fat as well as improve your contours.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment used to eliminate fat in pesky areas. This type of procedure works on a variety of body types for both men and women. This treatment can target multiple areas at once and takes an average of 25-30 minutes. You can nap, read, or relax during the procedure.
SculpSure was cleared by the FDA for use in noninvasive lipolysis in the lower abdominal area, flanks, and the upper abdominal area. SculpSure is not meant to be a weight loss option and works best for people with a BMI of 30 or less.
What’s more, this treatment requires no anesthesia or incisions. This means less discomfort, little to no recovery time, and a quick procedure time.
How Does SculpSure Work?
In this procedure, grid-like panels are strapped onto different body areas like the outer thighs and mid-section. A vacuum-like laser is then attached to the panels. SculpSure has cooling phases which keep the laser from overheating the skin.
The laser heats up the fat cells via the skin, destroying their structure and finally melting them. The body’s lymphatic system then flushes the fat cells away. You only require two treatments with a break in between each session of 12 weeks. Moreover, the entire session lasts for 25 minutes.
With SculpSure, you are assured of a tight body without damaging the skin or other tissues.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for SculpSure?
A suitable candidate for this treatment is someone who lives an active lifestyle but is straining with problematic areas in spite of their exercise efforts and diet. If you feel frustrated despite your efforts, SculpSure may be an excellent way to eliminate the fat cells.
What’s more, you need to be within 10-20 pounds of your ideal weight and want to target specific areas. You’re also a perfect candidate if you have good skin quality. Aging, weight loss, and childbirth can cause skin laxity. If you have any of these conditions, SculpSure would be the best choice.
Is There a Difference Between CoolSculpting and SculpSure?
While both these body sculpting techniques are similar, they do have differences.
• They are both FDA Approved.
• They both target stubborn areas with fat.
• Amount of fat treated, no downtime, and comfort level are similar.
CoolSculpting was first introduced in 2012, while SculpSure received clearance in 2015.
SculpSure uses controlled heat to get rid of fat cells while CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to eliminate fat cells.
The average cost of SculpSure was between $1300 and $1500 while the cost of CoolSculpting averaged between $2000 and $3000.
Results from this noninvasive fat reduction treatment look natural. The best part about SculpSure is that you can achieve the desired results without any downtime or surgery. While you will start seeing the changes in a few weeks’ time, the best results occur after a month or two following the treatment.
The treatment has little to no discomfort. However, this discomfort is controlled by thermal regulation of the pulse duration. You can easily resume your normal activities right after the treatment. The best way to determine if SculpSure is the right treatment for you is by talking to your doctor or medical esthetician who will ask questions and come up with a customized plan to ensure that it meets your expectations, budget, and timeframe.
