Are you trying to get a slim and toned body but keep running into “trouble spots”? Are you are finding it difficult to get results, especially in specific areas of the body where “stubborn fat” can stick around? Does it seem to stay in place despite what you eat or how you work out? If so, you may be the perfect candidate for an exciting, cutting-edge treatment technique called SculpSure, available form the caring medical professionals at InVogue Rejuvenation & Body Sculpting Center in El Paso, TX.
What Is SculpSure?
This is a revolutionary new laser technology that targets fat cells in specific stubborn areas. This modern laser doesn’t harm the skin or your organs while it does its work. Instead, it breaks down the walls of the fat cells directly. This allows your body to start eliminating the cells in these areas once and for all.
Patients should be near their ideal weight before treatment as this treatment is not intended for significant, large-scale weight loss. Instead, it is designed to achieve a slimming effect and give you the shape you desire, especially when particular pockets of fat just won’t go away. For this reason, it is often referred to as a “body contouring” or “body sculpting” treatment.
How Does It Work?
This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment relies on heat energy to break down the walls of your fat cells. Once the cell walls have been broken down, the cells will gradually fall apart and be flushed from the body over a period of several weeks. The result will be the disappearance of fat cells and a slimmer and more contoured look in the treated areas.
The treatment uses a unique type of laser in order to accomplish its goals. The laser is able to do this by using a special wavelength that only affects fat cells. Because the energy isn’t absorbed by skin or muscle, it’s able to avoid affecting other parts of your body.
What Are the Benefits?
SculpSure is popular for many reasons, but there are a few that make this treatment stand out.
Quick, Easy Treatment Sessions
Sessions usually last just 25-30 minutes, so you are in and out of the sculpting center quickly. This makes it easier than ever to sculpt your body as you won’t need to schedule nearly as much time as some other treatment options.
No Downtime Required
Some other treatments require lengthy recovery periods with a lot of rest required. In the case of something like liposuction, you may have to wait for an incision to heal, and in some instances, you may need to curtail your typical daily routine. But in this case, there is no downtime needed, and you can resume your normal activities on the same day.
SculpSure is non-surgical and non-invasive. Because of the wavelength of the laser being used, you won’t have any sort of scars left behind as a result of your treatment.
Many treatments require the use of some sort of anesthetic, but not everyone reacts to these in the same way. For some patients, injecting an anesthetic can cause an allergic reaction or particular discomfort. With this treatment, you can skip the injection completely.
Permanent Fat Cell Destruction
When we “burn” fat in a workout, the cell walls remain in place, and this makes it easier for fat to reappear later. But when we use this treatment, we are eliminating the cell completely, and we can achieve better results in both the short-term and the long-term. This can be especially advantageous for anyone who has done a lot of cardio but is still having trouble getting rid of fat.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
The most common treatment areas are the spots that typically harbor and store unwanted “stubborn” fat. These include the abdomen (or “belly fat” region), the flanks (“love handles”) and the back and thighs. There has even been success targeting unwanted fat stores on the chin.
Your Treatment: A Step-by-Step Look
What is a treatment process like? In this case, it’s very simple, as the whole process is designed for speed, efficiency, and comfort.
Your Initial Consultation
The first step is an in-person consultation with one of our staff. During this consultation, we will discuss your personal goals and what areas you would like to have treated. We will come up with a plan that’s suited to your unique needs and wishes. In addition, the consultation is a chance for you to ask any questions you might have. Lastly, we’ll go over your medical history, including any medications you might currently be taking, and prepare your treatment plan based on this information.
What Should You Do Before Treatment?
Because this is a non-invasive treatment, there are relatively few things that patients are required to do ahead of time. In some cases, we recommend cessation of certain painkillers prior to treatment, as they may increase the likelihood of bruising. In addition, some patients find it more comfortable to avoid strenuous workouts or heavy meals immediately before their session. However, there is little that one needs to do in order to get ready. Preparation is generally very simple, and the details will be covered around the time of the initial consultation.
The Treatment Session
The heat energy is delivered to the fat cells by the use of “applicators” that are placed on the skin. These applicators can be used together (in the case of a large treatment area) or individually (in the case of a more targeted treatment area). Over the course of 25-30 minutes, the lasers will work to raise the temperature of your subcutaneous fat cells just enough that their walls break, starting the process of cell elimination. This session is not painful. Instead, most patients report a “tingling sensation.”
What Should You Do After Treatment?
You can do what you would normally do! You can resume your typical activities after your session––it is possible to get this treatment on a lunch break and go back to work immediately afterward.
Everyone will experience their results differently based on the areas that are being treated and their initial body composition. However, there are a few basic guidelines that can be used in order to get a good idea of what you might be able to expect.
The process of lipolysis, the elimination of the fat cells, begins immediately with the treatment session; but the body needs to flush the damaged cells out of your system. Although the heat energy breaks down the cell walls right away, it takes time for the body to absorb and eliminate all the cells that were treated. Typically, a patient will notice visible results at about 6 weeks after treatment and ideal results at about 12 weeks after treatment.
Length of Results
The effects of treatment are permanent. Because the fat cells have been destroyed, they are gone for good. However, it is important to note that stubborn fat can return with poor diet or exercise habits, and it will be necessary to continue to practice healthy choices in order to maintain your results.
If you don’t find your answers here, don’t be concerned. As previously mentioned, you can ask us anything during your in-person consultation.
Is It FDA-Approved?
The US Food and Drug Administration has approved this technique for use on multiple body areas, including your abdomen, back, thighs, and chin. The FDA has deemed it safe for at least these areas, and it has continued to meet high standards of patient satisfaction in the time since.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Many patients only need one treatment to achieve their goals. One the other hand, some may see added success with a second or third treatment, but it is uncommon to have more than three sessions that all target the same area.
It’s also important to note that this will depend on the different areas you’re treating. During your consultation, we will determine the approach we feel will give you your best results.
How Successful Is It?
Because of the way the laser works, even a short treatment session can be very effective, destroying up to 24% of the treated fat cells in the area. The treatment has received a 90% satisfaction rate from those who have used it; significantly higher than many other options. In addition, because this is a low-risk treatment, it is very unlikely that there will be any negative side effects.
How Much Does It Cost?
This treatment is more cost-effective than several other leading body contouring and sculpting methods currently on the market, but it is not possible to give a precise amount upfront. Every patient comes to us with a unique body and with a personal set of aesthetic needs. Because the number of treatment areas and sessions may vary from person to person, it is necessary to make a more exact cost estimate after our initial consultation. At this point we will put together a pricing plan based on your specific needs.
Am I a Candidate?
Ideal candidates will typically be near their ideal body weight but are looking for a way to get rid of those last stubborn pockets of fat. Best results are achieved when treatment is followed by proper diet and exercise, but patients of any gender, ethnicity, or body composition can find benefit from this treatment. Because of the effect of the heat energy, however, it is advised for women who are pregnant to seek a different option.
At our center, we pride ourselves on taking care of our guests. We make each guest a priority, always taking into account your health, safety, and satisfaction. Because of this, we want you to feel comfortable. When you call, please ask any questions you might have, or voice any concerns.
