SculpSure is a new, cutting-edge body sculpting treatment that can enable fat reduction without surgery and is the only FDA-approved procedure to do so. The SculpSure treatment’s performance is a consistent and reliable way to achieve fat reduction and is perfect for anyone but of special interest to those whose fat seems to hang around despite diet and exercise. The Anti Aging Toronto Clinic is excited and proud to be a provider of SculpSure procedures in Toronto as part of the next generation of body sculpting technologies.
SculpSure treatments are carried out by placing a series of laser pads onto the skin over the area in question. These pads heat the skin and underlying layers and disrupt the fat cells underneath. A layer of cooling is also used to help keep your skin comfortable while this process is being carried out. Treatment takes only 25 minutes per area.
Once the SculpSure treatment has destroyed fat cells, it takes time for the body to eliminate them through the usual waste channels. This process takes time, but typically, the results of SculpSure will start to be seen as early as six weeks after the treatment. Optimal results tend to show up at around the 12-week mark. When studied, SculpSure showed up to a fat reduction of 24% among patients, and up to 40% fat reduction with a second treatment on the same area.
SculpSure Risks and Recovery
The SculpSure procedure is extremely comfortable. There is minor discomfort during the treatment process and all patients will feel is a warm, tingling sensation with intermittent periods of cooling as the laser pads do their work. The risks associated with SculpSure are very minimal. Complications are uncommon but minor when they do appear and usually take the form of swelling, redness or firming of the skin. These side effects are short-lived and will fade after a few hours or days. Even when experiencing these side effects, SculpSure users experience no downtime or recovery period and can engage in their normal activities immediately.
Who is SculpSure suited for?
SculpSure is best suited for people who are within 25 pounds of their body weight objective and who are dealing with body fat that has proven resistant to diet and exercise in the abdominal or flank areas.
How many treatments are needed?
Most patients see results after only one treatment. However, as each treatment only covers one area, some patients choose to get multiple areas treated in a single session. Repeat treatments can be performed on the same area for an enhanced result, but these are usually spaced at least six weeks apart.
Can SculpSure replace surgical procedures?
SculpSure is a way of achieving body sculpting and fat reduction without the need for surgery. Due to the way the treatment works, SculpSure cannot correct loose skin like a tummy tuck, nor can it produce the same dramatic results as liposuction. It is important to discuss your options with your skincare practitioner to make sure you understand the potential results of SculpSure.
Is SculpSure better than CoolSculpting?
The SculpSure procedure is similar in principle to another procedure called “cold sculpting,” brand name CoolSculpting. Cold sculpting employs direct cold and suction to freeze and destroy fat. While effective, cold sculpting is a more painful procedure and has a longer recovery time so it is falling out of favor. In other words, while both options can provide body sculpting without surgery, SculpSure is less severe, sessions are faster, and has no recovery time.
