SculpSure Fat Reduction
Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. The SculpSure system offers the first FDA-approved solution for patients who want to charge of their weight and take back their health by melting away the fat. Only SculpSure results in the permanent reduction of 24% of fat cells in 25 minutes. Our patients are so thrilled with their results that SculpSure boasts a 90% satisfaction rate.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis (or, the breakdown of fat) of the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs and is now available for the submental area (located under the chin). Using light-based energy, SculpSure safely and effectively eliminates unwanted fat cells—forever. The result is a permanent reduction of 24% of stubborn fat without surgery or downtime.
The SculpSure system for body contouring can treat both large and small problem areas. SculpSure is ideal for people who have trouble spots that seem resistant to diet and exercise. Even the most fit among us can have problem areas. We can treat multiple areas at once and it is safe for all skin types and tones.
There is no recovery time necessary following your SculpSure appointment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately. Remember, most patients need multiple treatments to achieve optimal results; however, many patients start to see results as early as six weeks following treatment as the body begins to naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells. Optimal results are typically seen at twelve weeks. Nothing make me happier than seeing my patients when they finally drop those inches. Finally, they reach the point when their clothes look better and they feel better in their own skin.
Why Choose SculpSure for Fat Reduction?
Dr. Prewitt has owned and operated a medical spa since 2007. During this time, she has been courted by scores of representatives from various body sculpting companies from VelaShape to Cool Sculpting. In each instance, she was not convinced that investing in one of these options was in the best interest of her patients. Dr. Prewitt was not impressed with the technology or the results and displeased by the adverse skin changes on the treated area. However, when SculpSure was FDA-approved in 2016, it got my attention.
How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure’s body contouring technology is able to target and destroy fat cells safely in a 25-minute treatment—all in the comfort and privacy of our medical spa. When you come for your appointment, one of our aestheticians places the SculpSure applicators on your desired treatment area, or areas. Using light-based energy, the lasers cause injury to the fat cells, what is called apoptosis. This process of controlled cell death decreases the volume and the number of fat cells by up to 24%. In the weeks following treatment, your body naturally eliminates the injured fat cells resulting in their permanent reduction and a slimmer appearance
Here’s how the SculpSure action takes place:
Targeted laser energy heats fat cells under the skin without affecting the skin’s surface.
- Destroying Fat Cells
SculpSure raises the temperature of fat cells damaging their structural integrity.
Over the next three months, the damaged fat cells are processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.
Fat cells are permanently removed and will not regenerate. Results can be seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks.
Patients often ask why 12 weeks? I remind them that they likely did not acquire that unwanted fat overnight and it is not going to magically disappear immediately after treatment. It will, however, dissipate in up to 12 weeks as demonstrated by the 90% satisfaction rate of SculpSure clients.
