Around one-third of adults in the U.S. find themselves in an in-between place in which they’re not obese, but still can’t seem to achieve the contoured body they want, despite living a healthy lifestyle. As a person in this position, you likely share the goal of so many, which is to slim down and contour before bikini season. SculpSure® can help you meet that goal and achieve that beach body you’ve always wanted. The best part? It’s a whole lot easier and more painless than you might expect. Let’s take a look.
What is SculpSure®?
SculpSure® is a non-invasive laser-technology from the trusted aesthetic laser brand Cynosure that targets excess fat cells under the skin. This precise laser heats and damages the cells so that your lymphatic system will naturally remove them from your body without harming the skin. Once these fat cells leave the body, there’s no way for them to grow back or regenerate, so, as long as you continue to eat healthy and exercise, you can maintain the results for a very long time.
SculpSure® works best for women who are overweight (25–30 on a BMI scale) and who have stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond well to diet and exercise alone. Studies have shown that SculpSure® can remove up to 24 percent of the fat cells in the treated area with just one session, leaving you slimmer, and with a better defined shape. The treatment also often tightens skin better than more-invasive procedures or natural fat loss.
What parts can Dr. Krinsky treat with SculpSure®?
SculpSure® has been FDA cleared to treat the:
- Chin/neck (OK for people with up to 43 BMI)
- Upper/lower abdomen
- Inner/outer thighs
What to expect during the procedure
Considering how effective SculpSure® is, you may be surprised to discover just how gentle this procedure is as it works with your body’s natural fat loss system, coaxing the process along to accelerate the amount of fat you lose. Patients who have tried SculpSure® before say the discomfort is very tolerable and feels a lot like a hot or cold tingling that is more intense in sensation than uncomfortable. Dr. Krinsky completes the procedure in fewer than 30 minutes, and there’s no downtime, so you can even schedule a session on an extended lunch break.
What to expect after the procedure
You may be sore and bruised in the treated area for a couple of days, but this doesn’t even compare to the possible pain, risk of infection and downtime that may result from more invasive, major fat-loss procedures. Within about six weeks, most people can see a noticeable difference when they look in the mirror, and by 12 weeks, you have your final results. You’ll:
- Be ready for summer this year
- Feel more confident in a swimsuit or anything you wear
- Feel more comfortable in your clothes, and you may even go down a size or more
You can have all of this with just one session, but, depending on your current fat proportions in the treatment area and your desired results, you may choose to have three or more sessions to obtain the optimal beach body you know you deserve. For this reason, you should start early in February or March to allow time for the number of sessions you choose. Dr. Krinsky listens to your goals and designs a treatment plan, which he carries out over the next two to three months to help you get that ideal, contoured body before summer.
If you’re overweight, you know how hard it is to lose those last pockets of fat and feel great in your body. SculpSure® can help. Contact the practice to schedule a consultation.
