Fat Reduction

Why is it so hard to lose fat?

Your fat cells perform an amazing service to your body, even though they are often maligned. Fat acts as a storage for energy and develops when you consume more calories than you expend. That stored energy waits until you experience a caloric deficit and then springs into action to fuel your body until the next meal.

Each fat cell has the ability to expand to accommodate more fat and shrink as that fat is burned. So losing weight doesn’t decrease your total number of fat cells, it just shrinks the cells you already have.

Weight loss occurs throughout your body. There’s no way to select which areas of fat are tapped first or to avoid losing fat in areas where you’d prefer a bit more padding. You can certainly work out to increase your muscle mass in certain areas, but there’s no secret exercise routine that will target fatty deposits.

How can SculpSure help with fat reduction?

SculpSure is a body-contouring system that uses the power of laser energy to permanently eliminate fat from your body. The process works by heating targeted fat cells to the point where the cell walls are damaged and can no longer store fat. The cells collapse, and the stored fat is released into your body where it is safely processed and eliminated.

Once those fat cells are gone, they will not regenerate. That means you’ll have fewer fat cells in the treated area, which will be visibly more toned.

SculpSure can eliminate fat in the following areas:

  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Upper thighs
  • Flanks

SculpSure was recently approved for use in the submental area, which is the area just beneath your chin where fullness leads to a “double” chin.

Why choose SculpSure over liposuction?

There’s no denying that liposuction is an effective way to rid your body of unwanted fat cells. For many men and women, however, SculpSure is a more appealing option.

To begin, liposuction is a surgical procedure. That means all the risks inherent in surgery. You’ll need at least a local anesthetic if not general anesthesia, which carries risks. There is also the risk of infection and heavy bleeding.

Liposuction also requires a lengthy recovery period. As your body heals you can expect significant discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You may need prescription medication to control discomfort.

SculpSure offers permanent fat reduction without an invasive surgical procedure. There’s no need for anesthesia, no incisions, and no downtime. You can come in for treatment and return to your normal routines the same day.
