I have written about more than a few fat-fighting treatments in the past. CoolSculping (freezes stubborn fat), Ultrasound Cavitation (ultrasound, requires multiple sessions), i-LipoXcell and others. Now, SculpSure promises to eliminate stubborn fat in the abdomen and flanks (AKA love handles) using a light-based technology, in just 25 minutes.
SculpSure is the first non-invasive, FDA-cleared laser treatment for the removal of unwanted fatty deposits (lipolysis). The treatment is safe for all skin types. During the treatment, the SculpSure applicators are applied to the areas to be treated via a proprietary frame that keeps the applicators in place without being held. Multiple areas can be treated at once. Within 4 minutes, the SculpSure laser raises the temperature of the subcutaneous fat by 42 -47 degrees Celsius, damaging the fat cells. Up to 24% of subcutaneous fat is removed in 25 minutes. Over time, the damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body via the lymphatic system. The increase in temperature of the subcutaneous fat does not cause the patient any discomfort, as the SculpSure applicators maintain continuous cooling on the skin.
Results can be seen as quickly as six weeks, with optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks. There is no post-treatment recovery time, enabling patients to return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.
Would you consider a laser treatment to get rid of diet and exercise-adverse fat?
