Body sculpting, or body contouring, improves your body’s shape by permanently removing those nagging areas of fat that don’t go away with diet and exercise.
Body sculpting is a noninvasive procedure performed using an advanced laser called SculpSure. It’s effective, but it’s not meant for weight loss; it’s for people who are close to their healthy body weight.
Scientific studies prove that SculpSure safely and efficiently removes fat. As a result, it’s FDA-cleared to eliminate fat from your abdomen, flanks (love handles), back, and inner and outer thighs.
SculpSure uses a laser that safely and harmlessly passes through your skin. Said laser is also absorbed by the fat cells below the skin, which subsequently break down from the heat. Your body then naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells.
The SculpSure medical device comes with four, flat applicators that each have a built-in cooling system to keep you comfortable during treatment.
The team at Holvik Family Medical Center can use any of the applicators, depending on the size of the treatment area. In fact, they can treat your entire abdomen at once if they use all four.
After the applicators are placed securely against your skin, they send out the laser energy. As the laser cycles on-and-off to maintain a steady temperature in the fat cells, you’ll feel warmth alternating with a cooling sensation.
Most people tolerate the treatment without anesthesia, but you can talk to the team at Holvik Family Medical Center if you have any concerns about your comfort.
You won’t need to worry about downtime. Your skin may be a little red for a short time, but that goes away quickly. You can return to your usual routine when the procedure is over.
It takes a little time for the body to clear away all the damaged fat cells, so results appear gradually. You may begin to see the difference in six weeks, but it usually takes 12 weeks to see the full effect.
One treatment session lasts 25 minutes. During that time, you’ll lose about 24% of the fat that was treated.* If that doesn’t produce sufficient results, you can schedule additional treatments.
*Individual results may vary.
