What Is SulpSure?
SculpSure is a laser-based, noninvasive treatment that’s used to target and reduce or eliminate fat. Noninvasive, nonsurgical cosmetic body procedures are becoming increasingly popular, especially to help with fat reduction. Nonsurgical procedures require no incisions or anesthesia. This can mean there’s minimal discomfort, a quick procedure time, and little to no recovery time. It works for both men and women and on a variety of body types.
What is the Procedure Like?
At your appointment, you will be seated in a comfortable, reclined position. The licensed practitioner will mark the treatment areas on your body and the SculpSure panel device is wrapped around you like a belt. SculpSure laser applicators are then connected to the frames and the laser is activated. The laser delivers high enough heat to effectively kill fat cells underneath the skin while leaving other tissues unharmed.The SculpSure device alternates between delivering a cooling effect and the heating to make the treatment more tolerable. Each treatment takes about 25 minutes. During the procedure, you can relax, read, or nap.
What is the Recovery Like?
You may experience mild tenderness or swelling in the treatment area. It is important to gently massage the area at least twice a day to help eliminate fat cells and drink plenty of ﬂuids. As your body metabolizes the eliminated fat cells, fat reduction may be noticeable in as few as six weeks after one treatment. During the 12 weeks after the procedure, your body’s lymphatic system naturally ﬂushes out the eliminated fat cells. If you need additional treatments to reach your desired results, they can be done 6-12 weeks or more after the ﬁrst treatment. SculpSure takes 25 minutes and is noninvasive with little to no recovery time. This means that you could feasibly have a treatment done on your lunch break and return to regular work immediately. Improves skin tone and discoloration.
