SculpSure is a new, non-invasive sculpting treatment that can naturally remove the fat from hard-to-lose spots, like the flanks, abdomen, buttocks and thighs. Approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2015, this innovative technology employs controlled light-based laser to the skin's surface in trouble spots. Pain-free, the laser beams penetrate beneath to kill fat cells. Afterward, destroyed fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body over a period of 6-12 weeks. This simple office procedure takes 25 minutes per desired area and allows Dr. Tarlow to remove the fat in multiple areas within the same office visit. Treatment does not require any anesthesia or downtime.
Patients can achieve up to a 24 percent reduction in fat after just one treatment.
Still, the majority of patients choose to undergo a few follow-up sessions for optimum benefits. Following treatment, patients are instructed to drink lots of water, which aids in the elimination of destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system.
SculpSure isn’t a replacement for exercise and diet or bariatric surgery. It’s most effective in spot reducing accumulations of fat in specific body areas of patients who are at a healthy weight.
Unlike other, older sculpting procedures, like Cool Sculpt or liposuction, SculpSure is pain-free, totally non-invasive, and there’s no downtime. Patients can actually work out at the gym the day of treatment. Additionally, SculpSure can remove the fat in larger areas of the body in a shorter amount of time.
Most definitely. One of the biggest advantages of SculpSure is that results are permanent. When fat cells are killed, they can’t reproduce. If a patient puts on weight after undergoing SculpSure treatment, fat won’t redeposit in the areas that were treated.
