It’s a new year, so what does this mean for many women? Time to get that holiday weight gain back off. (Insert womp, womp sound here.) If you’re desiring general weight loss, Azure Med Spa offers physician-supervised weight loss programs customized to your needs. However, you may have already worked to reduce your weight, but are left with some stubborn areas that just don’t seem to respond no matter how hard you work. Is there a solution?
SculpSure is a body contouring treatment that can be conveniently performed in a medical office in less than an hour. SculpSure utilizes targeted laser energy to heat up fat cells and melt them away. The laser used in a SculpSure treatment causes apoptosis, a process in which fat cells are gently heated and reduced in size so they can be eliminated via the body’s lymphatic system as waste.
What Parts of The Body Can Be Treated With Sculpsure?
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Upper/lower back
- Abdomen (love handles, stomach)
- Double chin & neck (submental area)
At your appointment, you will be seated in a comfortable, reclined position. Our staff will mark the treatment areas on your body and the SculpSure device will be wrapped around you, similar to a belt. Its applicators deliver a 1060-nanometer diode laser reaching a temperature of 107.6 and 116.6°F. The temperature is hot enough to kill fat cells underneath the skin without damage to other tissue. The SculpSure device then alternates between delivering a cooling effect and the heat laser. Each treatment takes about 25 minutes. The procedure does not rely on a suction mechanism and does not tug at or break the skin, so there is no bruising or scarring experienced by the patient. The procedure does not cause inner tissue damage.
SculpSure a non-invasive treatment with little to no recovery time. Each treatment of two to three 25-minute procedures can remove up to 24% of targeted fat cells without surgery. Your treatment can literally be performed on your lunch break and leave you free to return to work immediately. SculpSure is considered one of the safest ways to remove unwanted fatty tissue. Due to the non-surgical, non-invasive nature of the treatment, it has been declared safe by the Food and Drug Administration and is the first FDA-approved laser treatment.
In the 12 weeks following the procedure, your body’s lymphatic system will flush out the eliminated fat cells naturally. In the weeks after your treatment, you’ll see a permanent reduction in the persistent, unwanted pockets of body fat that were targeted. If additional treatments are needed to achieve specific results, they can be done 6-12 weeks or more after your first treatment.
Though it is classified as a permanent fat loss treatment, that doesn’t mean you can abandon common sense and eat whatever you want from then on, however. SculpSure does not affect caloric intake, obviously, so it does not affect your body’s ability to gain weight. Permanent fat reduction after SculpSure has to be maintained with a healthy diet, adequate exercise, and plenty of sleep.
