In recent years, nonsurgical fat removal procedures have become increasingly popular across the United States and the rest of the world. SculpSure is one form of treatment at the forefront of this recent growth. It is noninvasive, laser-based, body contouring treatment that aims to reduce and eliminate fat from the body. SculpSure can be used to target either a single area of fat or multiple areas at once and works well on both men and women. In the following article, we discuss the specifics of SculpSure, including how it works, its benefits, and how to recover from SculpSure treatment.
How Does SculpSure Work?
Unlike traditional body sculpting techniques that typically require surgery, SculpSure treatment system uses a laser that triggers a fat–burning process known as ‘apoptosis’. This process helps shrink fat cells by gently heating them. The fat cells are then filtered out as waste via your body’s lymphatic system.
At your SculpSure appointment, you will be seated in a comfortable, reclined position. Then, the SculpSure treatment device will be wrapped around you like a belt. The device will then apply a laser that reaches temperatures between 107 and 116 degrees Fahrenheit to kill fat cells underneath the skin. This temperature is ideal for destroying fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue.
During the first couple of weeks after a SculpSure treatment, you will notice that those persistent pockets of body fat are being permanently reduced.
Is SculpSure Effective?
Once treatment has been administered, SculpSure results may not become apparent until as late as 12 weeks after initial treatment. However, depending on how your body metabolizes and reduces fat cells, results may be seen as soon as 4-6 weeks after treatment.
The positive effects of SculpSure treatment will be sustained as long as you maintain a healthy exercise regime, diet, and lifestyle. While SculpSure is quite effective at destroying fat cells, it will not keep fat from reappearing if you do not follow other general fat-loss guidelines.
How To Prepare For SculpSure Treatment
When preparing for SculpSure treatment, it is important to communicate with your treatment facility and practitioner about which areas of your body you’re interested in treating. The practitioner should tell you how many sessions you need to reach your goals and which areas would be best to target for maximum results. Depending on where you receive SculpSure treatment, your practitioner may be:
- A Doctor
- A Physician
- A Nurse
- A Nurse Practitioner
- Another Licensed Health Expert
How Much Does SculpSure Cost?
According to research, most people spend an average of $1,500 for SculpSure treatment. Costs may vary, however, depending on your needs, the location of the fat being targeted, and the specific clinic you work with.
SculpSure Vs. CoolSculpting
The main difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting is the type of fat-reducing technology used to eliminate fat cells and promote healing, as well as the temperature administered to the patient. While CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells, SculpSure uses hot laser panels to melt away fat. CoolSculpting treatment applicators apply a temperature between 30 and 39.2 degrees Fahrenheit to kill fat cells, whereas SculpSure applies a temperature between 107 and 116 degrees Fahrenheit.
Recovering From SculpSure
The SculpSure recovery process may be different for each individual. However, following these general guidelines can help make it easier to get back to your normal daily routine and activity level.
- Resume normal activity as soon as you feel comfortable doing so. Unlike other treatments, SculpSure allows patients to resume normal exercise as soon as they feel comfortable doing so.
- Drink extra fluids for the first few days after treatment. The laser used in SculpSure damages cell membranes, which can sometimes cause light swelling. Increasing your fluid intake can help improve hydration and blood flow to flush this swelling away.
- Maintain healthy nutrition and eat more foods rich in antioxidants. Foods high in antioxidants such as blueberries raspberries and vegetables can aid in the healing and recovery process
