SculpSure is a body contouring treatment designed to eliminate pockets of excess fat while tightening the skin so it hugs your new contours tightly. It is one of the most popular treatments offered at InVogue Rejuvenation & Body Sculpting Center in El Paso, TX due to the number of incredible advantages it offers. To help you determine if this treatment will be a good fit for you, keep reading to learn more about it, including the results you can realistically expect.
How Much Fat Can You Lose With SculpSure?
You can generally expect to lose approximately 24% of the fat cells in your area of concern with each treatment session. In other words, if you have four inches of fat around your lower abdomen, you can expect to lose almost a full inch of abdominal fat with just one treatment session. If you need a second session to feel confident in your midsection, you can expect to lose roughly 0.75″ of abdominal fat.
How Quickly Can You See Your Desired Results?
How quickly you can expect to see your desired results depends on numerous factors. For instance, if you are at or near your ideal weight, you probably don’t have too much excess subcutaneous fat. In such a case, you may only need one treatment session. On the other hand, if you still have quite a ways to go on your weight loss journey, you may need closer to six sessions to achieve your desired results.
Generally, treatment sessions are spaced four to six weeks apart, and it can take up to three months to realize the results of a session fully. Therefore, if you need three sessions spaced a month apart, it may be five months before you feel fully satisfied with the results of your course of treatments. To see your final results as quickly as possible, you need to make sure your lymphatic system is as efficient as it can be.
What Steps Can You Take to See Your Final Results Quickly?
There are many steps you can take to boost the efficiency of your lymphatic system. One of the most effective steps you can take is to stay hydrated. One of the ways your body eliminates the liquefied fat cells is through urination. The more hydrated you are, the faster your body will be able to excrete the dead cells because your body won’t be retaining water. To hydrate yourself, eat water-dense produce and soup if your urine is not clear or very pale.
Eating produce or broth-based vegetable soup is great for your lymphatic system because these foods contain a lot of vitamins and minerals. You need to be well-nourished for your lymphatic system to operate as efficiently as possible, but you shouldn’t turn to a dietary supplement to get your recommended daily allowance of micronutrients. Pills, capsules, and gummies aren’t very bioavailable. You’ll get the most benefit from eating whole foods.
How Long Will the Results of My Treatment Last?
The results of this treatment are considered permanent because individuals who are at least 25 years of age can’t grow new fat cells. Once your lymphatic system has flushed out the fat cells destroyed during the treatment, there will always be fewer fat cells in the treated area. However, you should keep in mind that the remaining fat cells can expand to store excess energy for future use. Therefore, you should do your best to maintain your weight post-treatment.
How Does This Treatment Work?
SculpSure works by using the intense heat from laser light to melt fat cells in a targeted area while simultaneously inducing extra collagen production. Adequate collagen production is vital when you get a fat removal treatment because body contouring treatments result in rapid, significant fat loss. Collagen plays a number of vital roles throughout your body. In your skin, it serves as a key part of the foundation, keeping your skin tight and smooth.
Note that, unlike liposuction, this is a non-invasive treatment. Once, liposuction was considered the gold standard in fat removal. Liposuction works by creating one or more incisions and suctioning out excess fat. With this laser-based treatment, the liquefied fat cells are not suctioned out through an incision. Rather, they are eliminated naturally over the course of several weeks. This weight loss over time makes your results look much more natural.
What Are the Primary Benefits of This Treatment?
One of the most compelling benefits of SculpSure is that it does not just eliminate excess fat. It also induces extra collagen production in the treatment area, so you don’t have to worry about loose skin after losing a lot of fat very quickly. Another compelling benefit of this treatment is that it is non-invasive. Since there are no incisions required, it is safe for just about everyone. Also, there is no need for general anesthesia or downtime, and recovery is minimal.
What Can You Expect During Your Treatment?
You can generally expect your treatment session to take a mere 25 minutes to complete if you only have one area of concern. However, your session may take closer to 90 minutes if you need to remove excess fat from several regions of your body. When you come in for your appointment, you will be taken to a private room and asked to sit in a comfortable chair. Then, the device will be wrapped around your targeted area like a belt.
You will not feel any pain or discomfort during your treatment. The device alternates between pulses of laser energy that reach a temperature between 107.6 and 116.6°F and pulses that cool the skin. Your skin won’t even sustain a first-degree burn until it reaches a temperature of 118 degrees, so there is no need to worry about your skin being damaged by the heat emitted by the laser light.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
To find out for sure if you’re a good SculpSure candidate, you need to schedule an initial consultation at InVogue Rejuvenation & Body Sculpting Center in El Paso, TX by calling us or dropping us a line. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin in your areas of concern and talk about your medical history to ensure this laser-based treatment will be safe for you. We will also discuss your goals and evaluate your current contours to verify this treatment’s efficacy.
If you have very little excess fat in your area of concern, this treatment won’t be very effective. If you have a great deal of excess fat in an area of concern, each treatment session will result in a significant amount of fat removal. However, you still may not be satisfied with your results.
How Close Should I Be to My Goal Weight to Qualify?
You will probably be considered a great candidate for this body contouring treatment if you are already at your goal weight but your body fat is distributed in a way that you are not pleased with. If you are happy with your current weight, there is a good chance that you don’t have a lot of excess fat in your areas of concern, and you may be able to achieve your desired results with just one treatment session per area of concern.
However, this treatment may still be effective for you as long as you are no more than 30 pounds away from your goal weight. If you have 20 to 30 pounds to lose before you feel happy about your body mass index, you may need between four and six treatment sessions per area of concern to achieve your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will verify that there is not too much fat in a particular area for great results if you have a lot of weight to lose.
