SculpSure is an FDA-approved form of laser liposuction to help you meet your body contouring goals and desires. Dr. Richard Goldfarb at the Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery offers effective laser liposuction in the Philadelphia region. Is this the method that’ll help you get the body you want?
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a fairly painless and minimally-invasive procedure that we do right in our office. This treatment can be used on up to four areas at a time, focusing on your abdominal region, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and post posterior bra.
SculpSure utilizes a laser to heat the fat tissue to a certain temperature range. This disrupts the fat cells that you’re trying to target. A typical treatment only lasts around 25 minutes and you can get impressive results with just one treatment session. You should see those results in about 6-12 weeks.
What’s the Process for Laser Liposuction?
SculpSure is so non-invasive that this is a treatment you can get done over your lunch hour. There’s virtually no downtime required after this procedure is done. This method is designed to give you little to no skin damage. You shouldn’t have the level of bruising or swelling in treatment areas that you would experience with other treatment methods.
When you get to the office, four non-suction applicators will be attached to the target areas you point out. Multiple areas can be targeted throughout the procedure, as the applicators are easily moved and adjustable.
The procedure only lasts around 25 minutes and the applicators heat to the ideal temperature within just four minutes. You’ll feel a warming sensation, which is the laser destroying the fat cells. Contact Cooling technology is utilized to make sure that you aren’t too warm or uncomfortable throughout the procedure. After 6-12 weeks, your body will naturally destroy the targeted fat cells so you can see results.
Why Should I Get SculpSure Instead of CoolSculpting?
It’s natural to compare different sculpting options before you go forward with the procedure. One of the best benefits of laser liposuction is the time it takes. While SculpSure is only a 25-minute procedure that can target multiple areas, CoolSculpting takes an hour for only one area at a time. A single treatment of SculpSure is also more effective than a single one of CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting also means you’ll get more bruising and skin changes, as it’s a bit more of an invasive procedure. SculpSure also tapers the skin with the surrounding skin so that the treated area looks natural and blends in with the body. SculpSure stimulates the collagen in your skin while it’s destroying fat cells. This tightens up your skin, meaning it’ll look better and blend in when your treatment is done. CoolSculpting doesn’t offer that.
