Summer is almost here. Are you ready for swimsuit season? Trying to get the Covid-19 quarantine weight gain off may be proving harder than you expected. If so, Azure Med Spa offers physician-supervised weight loss programs customized to your needs. If you have already been successful in losing weight but still dealing with some stubborn areas that just don’t seem to respond to your efforts, we may have the right solution for you: SculpSure. SculpSure is a body contouring treatment. Conveniently performed in our office for 25 minutes, SculpSure utilizes targeted laser energy to heat up fat cells and melt them away.
How Does SculpSure Work?
SculpSure’s laser treatment produces apoptosis. Apoptosis is a process in which fat cells are gently heated and reduced in size. They can then be eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system as waste.
Which Body Parts Can Benefit from Sculpsure Treatment?
- Upper arms
- Upper/lower back
- Abdomen (love handles, stomach)
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
What is a SculpSure Appointment Like?
After you are placed in a comfortable, reclined position, our staff will mark the targeted areas on your body. The SculpSure device will be wrapped around you, like a belt. The 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.
Each treatment takes about 25 minutes. The SculpSure device alternates between delivering a cooling effect and the heat laser. Treatment with SculpSure does not cause inner tissue damage or tug or break the skin, so there is no bruising or scarring experienced by the patient. It is a non-invasive treatment with little to no recovery time. SculpSure is considered one of the safest ways to remove unwanted fatty tissue.
Without the need for surgery, each treatment of two to three 25-minute procedures can remove up to 24% of targeted fat cells. Your treatment can even be performed on a lunch break and you are able to go back to work immediately. Due to the non-surgical, non-invasive nature of the treatment, it has been declared safe by the Food and Drug Administration. It was the first FDA-approved laser treatment.
During the following 12 weeks after the treatment, your body’s lymphatic system will flush out the eliminated fat cells naturally. You’ll gradually see a permanent reduction in the persistent pockets of body fat that were targeted. If additional treatments are needed to achieve specific results, they can be performed 6-12 weeks or more after your first treatment.
It’s important to remember that although SculpSure is classified as a permanent fat loss treatment, you will still need to exercise self-control and make smart eating choices. Because SculpSure does not affect caloric intake, it does affect your body’s ability to gain weight. Permanent fat reduction after SculpSure has to be maintained with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep.
