Excess fat around the midsection is common, especially in mid-life and beyond. If no amount of exercise or dietary changes seem to help slim down this area, SculpSure® can help. Dr. Beena Nagpal is pleased to provide the minimally invasive treatment at her office, Bella Medical Aesthetics. If you live in the Clarksville and Columbia, Maryland areas, call the office today for an appointment or consultation.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared, laser therapy for reducing adipose (fat) tissue in the abdomen and flanks. The state-of-the-art, light-based technology helps eliminate stubborn fat effectively and quickly while tightening skin at the same time. It works on all skin types with a reported patient satisfaction rate of 90%.*
Am I a good candidate for SculpSure?
SculpSure is designed to target trouble fat areas, especially those that seem resistant to dietary and exercise changes. If you can’t seem to get rid of love handles no matter how much you exercise or how healthy you eat, SculpSure may be ideal.
How long does it take?
Each SculpSure treatment takes about 25 minutes during an in-office visit. Your body then begins eliminating fat cells in about 6-12 weeks. While most people notice results after only 1 session, you may want additional treatments until you reach your desired physique.
Does the laser hurt?
Laser therapy is gentle and non-invasive, so you won’t likely experience any significant discomfort during or after your SculpSure sessions. Most people experience an intermittent tingling sensation, which is usually tolerable.
Can I have multiple treatments on the same day?
Yes. You can have multiple SculpSure treatments on the same day. Up to 4 areas can be treated simultaneously, within the same 25-minute session. If you wish to treat within the same area more than once, however, waiting 6 weeks before your next treatment is recommended.
What’s recovery like?
SculpSure doesn’t require anesthesia or cause any major side effects, so no down time is needed afterward for recovery. Following your session, you can immediately resume your usual daily activities.
How long do results last?
Fat cells treated with SculpSure don’t regenerate, so once they are eliminated, they don’t return. Any remaining fat cells may grow with weight gain or shrink with weight loss, however. As needed, you can have additional treatments to address any enlarged fat cell accumulation or areas not yet treated.
How does it compare to CoolSculpt®?
SculpSure and CoolSculpt both aim to reduce fat, but in completely different ways. Unlike SculpSure, CoolSculpt uses lasers to freeze fat using a suction device in 1 treatment area at a time, each of which can take up to 1.5 hours. CoolSculpt is more likely to cause side effects, such as swelling and bruising, and does not tighten loose skin.
