What is laser liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a new approach to the destruction and removal of fatty tissue without the need for incisions. In laser liposuction, the intensely-focused energy of lasers is directed through the skin, targeting fat cells and breaking down the cell walls so the fat can be removed by the body’s natural waste system. Laser liposuction does away with the need for incisions, so healing and recovery are faster, treatment is quicker, and the risk of complications is greatly reduced.
What is the SculpSure system?
SculpSure is the first noninvasive liposuction system approved by the FDA for removal of fat in the belly and flanks. The system works by directing laser energy deep below the skin’s surface, heating fat cells and breaking them down without the need for suction and incisions. Laser energy is administered through a handheld device that features a special cooling surface to keep the upper layers of skin comfortable during treatment. The energy delivery system is designed to ensure consistent application throughout the treatment zone for better results, and multiple areas can be treated in as little as 25 minutes. Most patients see initial results in six weeks, with optimal results at about 12 weeks after treatment.
Am I a good candidate for SculpSure?
SculpSure can be an ideal solution for many women and men looking for a way to remove stubborn fat so they look and feel their best, but it’s not for everyone. The best way to determine if SculpSure could be a good choice for you is to schedule an office consultation so you can be evaluated. During your consultation, you’ll have an examination and be asked to provide a complete medical history to ensure laser liposuction is the best choice for your needs.
