How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure is performed through the use of a specialized laser. During treatment, the applicator is held to the treatment area. The laser technology then works to emit laser energy that penetrates into the deeper layer of skin, in the dermis. The dermis is part of the skin that is located directly below the top layer (epidermis). The device emits laser energy that penetrates into the dermis, where it melts fat cells. These fat cells are destroyed and then your body gets rid of them like any other waste matter.
When the energy heats up fat cells it does so successfully without harming any of the surrounding tissue. When SculpSure raises the temperature of the fat cells, their structural integrity is damaged and fat loss occurs.
How long to see results – What happens after SculpSure?
Over the next few months following treatment, the damaged cells are metabolized and flushed from the body. Not only does SculpSure innovative system destroy the fat cells, but it actually works to permanently eliminate them. This is a safe procedure that can effectively eliminate your problem fat for good. You may be able to see results as early as 6 weeks after your treatment, but you should wait at least 12 weeks to see the optimal results. This is a good thing, since the effects come gradually so it looks more natural. You’ll look like you’ve been diligently working out and dieting!
SculpSure treatments can improve the appearance in a variety of areas on your body including common problem areas. These can include areas of the stomach, arms, back, thighs and neck. Multiple treatments are often suggested in order to achieve optimal results. If you are ready to achieve a slimmer and more contoured appearance, SculpSure could benefit you.
Why is SculpSure Better Than CoolSculpting? What is better SculpSure vs CoolSculpting?
You may have heard about CoolSculpting, another non-surgical treatment that also eliminates fat. Even though there’s a lot of media coverage on CoolSculpting, we still prefer SculpSure. Here’s why:
- No Suctioning: CoolSculpting technology is different, because it freezes fat. The initial freezing part can be quite uncomfortable. Part of the treatment also requires an uncomfortable suctioning of the fat. The fat gets frozen and takes the shape of the applicator. This has been described as a “hunk of butter under your skin”. The suctioning can be quite painful to some, and many are left with tenderness, redness and even bruising after their Coolsculpting treatment. (Ouch!) SculpSure only melts the fat and requires absolutely no suctioning, so your body can more quickly eliminate it from your body.
- More Affordable: Which is cheaper SculpSure or CoolSculpting? The cost of SculpSure is actually more affordable than CoolSculpting, as each session typically costs less.
- Faster Treatments: SculpSure can target anywhere up to 4 areas in a single treatment session. CoolSculpting can only do 1 or 2, and it usually takes about an hour or more. A single SculpSure session takes only about half an hour. Imagine how much time you’ll save!
- Faster Recovery: You’ll need to wait a little longer to see the results of a CoolSculpting treatment, since the recovery period is lengthier. In fact, side effects from CoolSculpting can last up to 2 weeks! On the other hand, SculpSure requires no recovery and any redness dissipates fairly quickly.
