For many people, it can seem as though no matter how hard you exercise or diet, there is that one area of stubborn body fat that just won’t go away. These areas are often around the abdomen where love handles tend to form. Dr. Weiler is proud to offer his clients SculpSure™, the latest in light-based body contouring. Using this method of fat reduction, you can achieve the results you are looking for without the need for painful surgery that leads to extended downtime.
How Does SculpSure™ Body Contouring Work?
SculpSure™ uses a patented form of light-based technology designed to create a carefully controlled form of hyperthermia (temperature increase). The hyperthermia is directed at the stubborn fat cells and increases the temperature of these adipose tissues to a temperature of approximately 42-47 degrees Celsius. The equipment operates at a wavelength of 1060 nm, which is perfect for attacking the adipose fat cells without causing any damage to the tissues surrounding them.
To ensure your comfort throughout the 25-minute procedure, the equipment is designed to keep the surface of the applicator cool. Not only is SculpSure™ an ideal way to get rid of that stubborn fat, but at the same time, the applicator is completely colorblind in that it will work with literally any skin type. Since all of the fat cell destruction takes place under your skin and there is no damage to the outer layers, there is literally no down time, you can return to your everyday activities immediately after the treatment.
What Does SculpSure™ Feel Like?
The fact that there is little to no pain involved in the SculpSure™ process is one more very important reason why so many of our patients choose this method to help them get rid of those stubborn fat cells. During the procedure, the only thing you are likely to feel is a slight amount of pressure where the applicator is touching your skin along with a slightly cool sensation caused by the cooling action of the applicator itself. There is no after treatment bruising or pains involved.
The best part is that SculpSure™ offers a permanent solution to your excess abdominal fat. You will start to see results in approximately three weeks as the affected fat cells begin to break down and are absorbed back into your lymphatic system where they are eliminated. It can take up to 6 to 12 weeks for you to see the final results.
