New Year, new you, right? Right! If the start of January has you thinking about all the ways you’d like to improve your body, you aren’t alone — getting rid of persistent fat and attaining a leaner profile is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions for women and men of all ages.
It can be frustrating to deal with persistent fat, or those stubborn pockets of unwanted flab that hang onto your belly, back, hips, thighs, or chin no matter how active you are, how well you eat, or how close you are to your ideal body weight.
Even worse, these common problem areas can be even harder to get rid of with traditional diet and exercise as you get older. Luckily, you live in a time when the future of aesthetic medicine has already arrived — SculpSure® noninvasive body contouring gives you a way to spot-reduce those bothersome bulges safely, effortlessly, and without having to resort to plastic surgery.
Let’s explore how SculpSure can help you create the body you’ve always wanted.
Everyone’s body has its own unique way of storing extra calories. If you’re one of the lucky few, you’re genetically predisposed to a relatively uniform storage pattern that gives you a balanced body shape, no matter what your weight happens to be.
If you’re like the vast majority of adults, however, you’re genetically predisposed to storing extra calories in a few specific places. And although those areas of fat may shrink a bit when you lose weight, they never seem to completely disappear, even when you’re at your ideal body weight.
Your gender and age also have an influence on where your body stores this so-called “persistent” fat. Women are biologically wired to store extra calories around their midsection, hips, and thighs, while men are more likely to experience excess fat in their midsections as their testosterone levels decline with age.
When you lose weight through diet and exercise, you have no control over which areas of your body become leaner and which areas retain a greater degree of fullness — your body chooses which areas of fat to use for fuel and which areas to leave behind for future use.
Because the areas of fat around your abdomen, back, hips, thighs, and chin tend to be the most resistant to traditional weight control efforts, the only way to truly get rid of them is with some type of treatment that allows you to selectively spot-reduce unwanted pockets of fat.
Not too long ago, the only way to effectively spot-reduce to achieve your desired body shape was by having liposuction surgery, an invasive procedure that comes with a risk of infection, causes some discomfort, and requires a significant amount of post-procedural downtime.
Today, you don’t need to go under the scalpel to spot-reduce persistent fat — you can get the job done in just a few 25-minute SculpSure sessions. The treatment is so quick and easy that many of our patients come in over their lunch hour and head right back to work when they’re done.
No matter where your problem areas happen to be, SculpSure noninvasive body contouring can make a noticeable difference by using advanced laser energy to target and permanently eliminate unwanted fat cells.
Without affecting your skin or other nearby tissues, SculpSure’s specialized applicators send painless wavelengths of laser energy directly into unwanted fat cells, damaging their integrity so they can no longer function as they should.
When your body’s lymphatic system recognizes these cells can’t be repaired, it systematically flushes them from your body over the course of a few weeks, leaving you with an increasingly slimmer, more sculpted physique.
With traditional fat loss methods, your fat cells shrink as you lose weight, but the cells themselves don’t disappear. With SculpSure, on the other hand, the targeted fat cells are permanently eliminated, and can’t be regenerated.
FDA-cleared to permanently reduce persistent fat along the abdomen, back, flanks (love handles), thighs, and beneath the chin, SculpSure can destroy up to 24% of fat cells in the treatment area with each 25-minute session.
