Spot training is the idea that you can perform a set of exercises that will reduce fat in specific areas of your body. The concept gains traction every few years in the fitness community before being swiftly debunked.
In reality, there is no way to reduce fat in a specific area of your body. You have fat cells located throughout your body. Most of that fat lies just beneath your skin. Each of your fat cells has the ability to expand and contract as needed to accommodate more or less fat.
When you gain weight, your fat cells expand. When you lose weight, that fat is converted into energy, and your fat cells shrink. This process happens throughout your body, and there’s no way to focus fat loss on any specific area.
SculpSure takes a different approach to fat reduction. The system uses laser energy to create heat in the layer of fat that lies beneath your skin.
When heated to a certain point, the structural integrity of those cells fails. They can no longer store fat, and the fat present at the time of treatment simply drains out of the compromised cells. That fat, along with the cellular debris left behind, is processed and eliminated through your lymphatic system.
It’s important to note that while SculpSure does eliminate a portion of the targeted fat cells, it isn’t a weight-loss technique. SculpSure is intended to refine the contours of your body. It’s best suited for men and women who’ve reached and are able to maintain a healthy weight.
SculpSure treatments are not painful. When you arrive you’ll remove any clothing near the treatment area and rest comfortably on the treatment table or chair. Your practitioner provides protective eyewear and explains how the process works.
During your session, the practitioner glides the treatment wand across the surface of your skin. You might feel a warming or tingling sensation, but there is no pain. Many men and women find their sessions relaxing. The entire process usually takes less than half an hour, depending on the area being treated.
You may notice some stiffness or soreness in the treated area for a few days after your appointment. Mild bruising is also possible but will clear quickly.
It takes a few months for your body to eliminate the damaged fat cells. You may begin to notice reduced fat and improved contouring in the treated areas after the first month, and you can expect those results to continue to develop until around the 12-week mark.
