Body contouring has become very popular because it doesn’t require surgery, and SculpSure® is one of the best non-invasive treatments available for fat removal. The procedure uses laser energy to heat certain areas of your body. The heat is responsible for safely disrupting stubborn fat cells.
If you’re looking for a way to sculpt and shape your body, then SculpSure® can help you do it without surgery. By applying the perfect amount of heat, this treatment can eliminate unwanted fat cells and give you a slimmer appearance.
How SculpSure® Eliminates Stubborn Fat Cells
A typical treatment session takes about 25 minutes. Unlike invasive treatments, SculpSure® doesn’t involve discomfort, downtime or surgery, and it can work for several areas of the body.
During the 25-minute session, SculpSure® uses laser energy to elevate the temperature of adipose tissue, and by raising the temperature high enough, it disrupts unwanted fat cells. The heat produced by the laser energy is strong enough to tackle fat cells, but it won’t cause damage to your surrounding skin tissue.
This treatment is possible because it uses a specific wavelength of energy to heat the fat cells below your dermis, which destroys the fat. Once you’re finished with the procedure, your body will get rid of the disrupted fat cells over a period of time. The gradual nature of the results helps them to look natural.
The Science Behind the Treatment
For most of your lifetime, the total number of fat cells that you have in your body stays within a certain range. During the SculpSure® treatment, these cells are “injured” by heat. When the cells sustain damage, your body is smart enough to discover the damage, and since your body views the damaged cells as garbage, it uses natural processes to get rid of them.
During the treatment, you might feel a slight tingling sensation, and a mild heating sensation is quite common. Most patients tolerate the treatment well, and unlike CoolSculpting®, this procedure doesn’t use a suction device to pull your skin, which is why it’s much more comfortable.
