You work hard to get and keep the shape you want. When you’re not blessed with exceptional metabolism and genetics, it takes long hours of exercise and plenty of attention to diet and nutrition. Even then, you may find that nature “blesses” you with fat rolls and bulges that resist your hard work.
Reshaping your body with liposuction surgery was once your only recourse to manage these stubborn subcutaneous pockets of adipose (fat) tissue. But today you’ve got another weapon in your body sculpting arsenal. WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure® uses the power of laser light energy to literally melt away the fat that stands between you and your goals.
When you want to make those last few refinements to your body shape, call on Bayview General Medicine and our team led by Dr. Richard Blanchar. As SculpSure body contouring specialists, we can explain precisely how this innovative system reshapes stubborn fat in short, nonsurgical office sessions that require zero down time for recovery.
Your body stores fat in two places. Visceral fat accumulates in places like your abdomen, surrounding organs, and under layers of muscle. It doesn’t affect your shape in the same way as subcutaneous fat, the deepest layer of your skin.
It doesn’t matter how toned your muscles are, subcutaneous fat rests on top. You can work out all you want and follow a calorie-deficit diet and it may not matter. Your body controls when and where to draw calories from body fat. Murphy’s law dictates the more you want to be rid of those love handles, the less your efforts will work.
But subcutaneous fat has two important characteristics that make it ideal for the WarmSculpting with SculpSure system. First, it absorbs wavelengths of light that pass through the upper layers of your skin harmlessly, converting light into heat. Second, this fat tolerates only a narrow range of temperature, far less than your outer skin can stand.
When you try WarmSculpting with SculpSure, your first sensation is cool. The SculpSure applicators cool your outer skin on contact for protection against the warming action that follows. When the SculpSure laser starts to pulse, you’ll feel warmth deep down as the cells of subcutaneous fat begin converting laser light to heat.
Over the course of your 25-minute session, about 24% of the fat in the treatment area warms sufficiently to trigger a healing response from your body. Recognizing that these fat cells overheated, a process starts that flushes the compromised fat from your body over a period of weeks. Most patients see results as soon as six weeks, with maximum effects seen in three months.
WarmSculpting with SculpSure isn’t a weight-loss method, but rather a body shaping treatment designed to let you revise your body the way you want.
