What is Sculpsure Treatment / Warmsculpting in Cincinnati?
Dr. Gupta and her medically trained staff offer SculpSure treatments in the Cincinnati area. Sculpsure , also known as Warmsculpting, can be used to reduce areas of fat on your body which are resistant to diet and exercise efforts. Sculpsure, or Warmsculpting, is a non-invasive procedure using a 1060 nm wavelength laser which is able to selectively target fat under the skin, heat it to a temperature that causes the fat cells to die and all the while leaving unharmed nerves, blood vessels and skin. One advantage of Sculpsure compared to Coolsculpting, which uses cold energy to destroy fat cells, is the the added benefit of heat stimulating collagen and elastic fiber growth for tighter skin in the treatment area. In our practice, we often combine Sculpsure or Warmsculpting with Coolsculpting, where we might begin with Coolsculpting if the area is a bit larger and perform Sculpsure or Warmsculpting for subsequent treatments to the same area.
How Does Sculpsure Treatment / Warmsculpting Work?
Sculpsure/Warmsculpting is a laser treatment that uses heat technology to treat fat cells anywhere on the body. Unlike Coolsculpting, the treatment does not require one to have pinchable fat and hence allows for more customized sculpting and treatment designs. By heating these fat cells to a certain temperature, the laser causes the fat cells to die, which your body will then gradually eliminate over the next 12 weeks. The fat cells that are lost are permanently eliminated. Check out this video to see how SculpSure works.
