With summer just a few weeks away, now is the time to start thinking about getting your body ready for bikini weather. When isolated areas of fat keep you from feeling your best in a bathing suit, cosmetic treatments can sculpt those problem spots and give you the confidence you need to hit the beach in style. At Cole Aesthetic Center, we can help you melt your fat away with a revolutionary treatment known as SculpSure.
The Science of Melting Fat
Laser energy is the secret to SculpSure’s success. The laser heats and destroys fat cells without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. The treated fat cells are liquefied so they can be eliminated by the body over time, and the treatment area gradually becomes leaner and more contoured. SculpSure can eliminate up to one-fourth of the fat in the targeted area with just a single treatment session.
SculpSure uses small applicators to deliver the heat energy while cooling plates keep the skin at a comfortable temperature throughout the procedure. This treatment is primarily recommended for reducing the circumference of the thighs, smoothing away love handles, and flattening the midsection. These are common areas where deposits of fat can settle and become unresponsive to diet and exercise. If that happens, SculpSure can effectively eliminate those stubborn deposits to give you a smoother, leaner body profile.
Any skin tone and type can be safely and effectively treated with SculpSure. It works equally well on male and female patients. Patients that have not responded well to other non-surgical methods of body contouring like CoolSculpting may find SculpSure to be more successful. It can also replace liposuction and other types of surgical contouring for patients that want to avoid the downtime and have small areas to treat.
SculpSure is an outpatient treatment that does not require any anesthesia. Most patients find the procedure to be very comfortable, and some even find it relaxing. A warm tingling sensation is usually the extent of the SculpSure experience. The entire treatment session takes just 35 minutes to complete.
After your SculpSure treatment, you should be able to return to your regular activities right away. There are few side effects after the procedure, which means you could actually schedule your treatment on a lunch hour and head back to work immediately without anyone knowing you just had a cosmetic treatment.
Results from SculpSure are not seen right away. It takes time for the treated fat cells to be flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system. You will see your treated area become more sculpted over the weeks following treatment, with full results usually evident after about 8 to 12 weeks.
Because the fat cells are completely eliminated, SculpSure is considered a permanent method of fat reduction. However, if you add some pounds after your treatment, remaining fat cells could enlarge and interrupt your results. If this occurs, you may need a follow-up procedure to maintain your new body contour.
SculpSure is a quick, relatively painless way to say goodbye to unwanted fat and achieve a smoother, sleeker body contour. Cole Aesthetic Center is one of the few practices in the Silverdale area to offer this procedure for our patients.
