If you’ve changed your diet, adopted a steady workout routine, and still have stubborn body fat, there is a treatment that could be right for you. The SculpSure laser treatment is a non-invasive, fat-reduction treatment that targets and kills fat cells in those troublesome areas. As your body metabolizes those cells, you will notice a significant difference in the way your clothes fit and feel.
SculpSure Laser Dissolves Stubborn Fat without Surgery
Going under the knife causes a lot of anxiety for people looking to remove excess fat from their bodies. Thankfully, the SculpSure laser fat removal treatment is a non-surgical procedure that is safe, has no down time, and is virtually painless. To get such drastic results from fat removal without surgery might seem impossible, but patients are noticing changes only a few weeks after their first session. Results are typically seen six weeks following the treatment, and optimal results are seen at about 12 weeks. The treatment is so efficient and safe that the 25-minute procedure can be done on your lunch break. If you have multiple areas of concern, you can treat all of those areas in one day. Once your treatment session is over, you can return to work, exercise, or resume any of your daily activities.
Body Sculpting—Not a Weight Loss Treatment
It is important to know that SculpSure is not a weight-loss procedure but a fat-loss treatment. Weight loss causes fat cells to shrink, but the number of fat cells remains the same. With the SculpSure treatment, fat cells are actually destroyed for good, which makes it perfect for targeting those tough spots. The laser injures the fat cells in the areas targeted, and over the course of a few weeks, the body’s immune system begins the process of eliminating the cells. As a result the treated area shrinks, giving you a more toned body. The treatment is designed for people who live active and healthy lifestyles but can’t seem to target the fat in areas such as their love handles, abdomen, and thighs.
How to Prepare for SculpSure
Before getting SculpSure fat reduction in Toronto, you should discuss the procedure with your licensed practitioner. Communicate which areas of your body you want to treat, and the professional will tell you how many sessions you may need in order to reach your goals. Licensed practitioners may be a doctor, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner, nurse, or aesthetician. The first consultation usually takes place right before your first treatment, so you should be prepared to discuss your medical history and avoid blood thinners and painkillers a few days before your treatment is scheduled to avoid bruising.
Transform Your Body in Just 25 Minutes
If you want fat reduction on your love handles, thighs, and abdomen, the SculpSure treatment is a great solution. The treatment essentially melts away fat cells! During the 25-minute-long treatment, a device is wrapped around you like a belt, and a laser heats up the area enough to kill the fat cells underneath the skin, while leaving the other tissues unharmed. The treatment device alternates between giving a cooling effect, and a heated laser.
What Is the Difference Between Fat Loss and Weight Loss?
The main difference between fat loss and weight loss is that fat loss is permanent. When the SculpSure laser heats up the large fat cells in the treated area, these cells eventually die and are naturally eliminated from the body. Once these cells have been eliminated, they do not grow back, making the procedure permanent. This treatment is perfect for people who live an active, healthy lifestyle, but who still struggle with stubborn areas. Since fat is not that heavy, you may not see a big variance on the scale; the difference you will notice is on your body’s shape.
SculpSure Results and Recovery
It takes about 12 weeks after the procedure for your body’s lymphatic system to completely and naturally flush out the eliminated fat cells. Patients who require multiple treatments can book their appointments six to 12 weeks or more after their first treatment. If you are wondering how soon you will notice the results of the treatment, they typically take as few as six weeks after the treatment. On average, a single session results in up to 24% fat reduction in the treated area. The best way to keep these results long-lasting is to maintain a healthy diet and an active lifestyle.
Is There Any Risk Involved?
The treatment’s heating phases may cause some uncomfortable sensations such as pinching, a cramp sensation, or tingling. That being said, these sensations are tolerable and no numbing agent or anesthesia is necessary. There have been very few serious side effects with the SculpSure treatment, but since it is relatively new, research and testing is still ongoing regarding the effects on the body. Once the treatment is complete, patients typically experience mild soreness and stiffness. Depending on the person’s body, they may experience some bruising in the treated areas. Licensed practitioners often recommend that you massage the firm areas during the weeks after the procedure for about five minutes a day, until the tenderness, stiffness and soreness has completely gone.
