When people refer to the fight that they have with diet and exercise, they call it the battle of the bulge. And when they say that they are experiencing a battle, they are not exaggerating. Trying to lose weight is like fighting a war. When a person tries to lose weight, they need to fight against their own desires to eat food that is not appropriate, they need to resist the constant bombardment of advertisements that try to entice them to eat foods that are not good for them, and they need to fight against their lack of self-discipline. None of this is easy.
However, once a person gets into a routine of eating healthy and having a regular workout regimen, they start to feel better. As they watch the pounds melt away, they likely feel more encouraged to stick to their diet. However, just about every dieter reaches a point where they are frustrated with the results. Maybe they have lost the amount of weight that they wanted to lose, but when they look at themselves in the mirror, they are not happy with what they see. This is because even though they lost fat overall, they may still have a collection of fat in trouble spots.
SculpSure® is a procedure that has been cleared by the FDA to address some of these trouble spots. It is a non-invasive procedure that uses a controlled light technology to get rid of fat. This non-surgical treatment takes approximately 25 minutes, and it is performed using a simple and effective system. It has a flat applicator that does not use suction. This means that the results you get from using SculpSure® are going to be even and consistent.
The procedure uses 1060 nm wavelengths to attack body fat. Once the cells are destroyed, the body absorbs them and eliminates them through its natural waste removal process. Throughout the procedure, the fat tissue’s temperature is raised to between 42°C and 47°C. However, the dermal tissue remains at a comfortable temperature. No damage is done to the dermal tissue. A trademark contact cooling system is used in conjunction with the procedure to keep the patient as comfortable as possible.
A trial that was performed on over 100 patients showed that more than 90 percent of the patients had an exceptionally high satisfaction rate with their SculpSure® treatment. They commented on how comfortable the treatment was and how well they tolerated the treatment. One of the benefits of using this type of body contouring procedure is that it can be used on people of all skin types.
SculpSure® is yet another tool that a person can add to their arsenal as they fight fat. It is not designed to be a weight loss tool, but it can work in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle to give you the contoured look that you want.
