What Is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a type of lipolysis, an FDA-cleared contouring system that's proven its ability to remove stubborn fat completely surgery-free. It uses a targeted laser to dissolve the fat cells in your love handles without harming the skin or other tissues.
If diet and exercise just aren't finishing the job, this procedure can help you achieve that smoother, firmer look that allows you to feel confident in your own body.
Why SculpSure beats other methods
Liposuction is the second most popular cosmetic procedure with nearly 300,000 performed last year alone. It's proven its ability to remove fat from love handles, but traditional liposuction traumatizes the body. It takes months to fully heal.
Can you take months off from your job for a cosmetic procedure? You probably can't.
Do you want to put your social life on pause for months? It's not likely.
Often SculpSure patients get this 25-minute procedure, and then they resume normal activities the same day.
Another huge concern you might have about liposuction is excess skin after the procedure. Surgery-free SculpSure can actually tighten the skin as it eliminates fat.
In a small but well-conducted study published by the US National Library of Medicine, 10 women received traditional liposuction in one love handle and lipolysis (SculpSure) on the other. The researchers measured significantly tighter skin on the lipolysis-treated side.
This is great news for people struggling with love handles who don't want loose skin to take their place.
Good candidates for SculpSure
The best candidates for this procedure are people in good overall health. They may lack confidence about their physical appearance because of stubborn fat deposits around their midsection.
If you've been struggling to get those last 20-30 pounds off with diet and exercise alone, SculpSure is likely a good choice for you. It's not a weight-loss system, but removing fat that just won't go away typically results in some weight loss.
How SculpSure handles your handles
After applying a local anesthetic and cooling device, the SculpSure applicator is applied firmly on the love handle. You'll feel both a warm and cool sensation. That's the cooling device protecting layers of skin while the laser targets the fat cells underneath.
The laser safely cycles on and off, slowly melting the fat cells in your abdomen. Most patients experience minimal if any discomfort during this procedure.
Do you remember when people lived by the slogan, "No pain, no gain"? That's not the case anymore. Scientific research has now led to the development of a device that can eliminate stubborn love handles without the pain, the downtime or the cost of traditional fat-removal procedures.
Where does the fat go?
Your lymphatic system is like the garbage disposal of your body. It filters dead cells, toxins, food additives and other waste out of the blood. The lymphatic system carries the destroyed fat cells to the kidneys so that the dead cells can be excreted from the body.
Here's the really great news: The fat cells cannot grow back. New fat cells don't replace the old ones. Once they're destroyed, they're gone.
How quickly can SculpSure get rid of love handles?
SculpSure destroys the fat cells during the procedure. Your body spends the next several weeks getting rid of those fat cells. Most patients see notable results within six weeks. SculpSure has a 90 percent satisfaction rate.
Depending on how much of your "love handles" you want removed, you may need four sessions or more to get your desired results. Dr. Hall assesses your individual needs and goals. She develops a personalized plan for you.
