Anyone who's struggled with weight loss knows how frustrating it can be. You’ve worked hard, eaten right, given up your favorite snacks, and exercised diligently. You’re finally in your ideal weight range, and yet those pesky love handles won’t go away. Or you’ve still got those stubborn pockets of fat that hang around your abdomen, hips, or thighs.
For patients in or near Columbia, Maryland, Dr. Melanie Adams offer SculpSureⓇ, an innovative body sculpting treatment that targets these trouble areas, leaving you with a slimmer, more contoured figure and accentuating all the hard work you’ve put into your body and health.
Here's a look at the SculpSure system and how it can benefit you.
Genetics, lifestyle, metabolism, and the natural effects of aging all play a part in our body’s resistance to shedding unwanted pockets of fat. While it takes considerable work to slim down in general, some areas just seem to resist. While you shouldn’t abandon your diet and exercise plan, SculpSure can give you that added boost you need.
To truly reap the benefits SculpSure has to offer, you should be at or near your ideal weight before undergoing treatment. SculpSure is not a fat loss procedure for those who carry a lot of extra weight.
The cutting-edge, FDA-approved SculpSure system uses focused laser energy to target problem areas, offering permanent fat reduction. It’s a noninvasive treatment, using up to four applicators that target specific areas without causing any damage to the skin or surrounding tissues.
The laser energy disrupts the fat cells, damaging their structural integrity. Over the next few weeks, your body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells through your lymphatic system.
Because it’s noninvasive, you can go about your daily activities immediately after treatment without any downtime. You’ll see your results develop over the next 6-12 weeks as the fat cells are flushed from your body.
A SculpSure session typically lasts around 25 minutes, and most people can expect to attend several sessions for optimal results. The exact time and number of sessions depends largely on the treatment area. For instance, SculpSure treatment for a double chin may not take as long or require as many sessions as a body contouring plan for a larger area like the back or abdomen.
Before you even begin treatment, Dr. Adams will discuss your health, lifestyle, and aesthetic goals and develop a treatment plan with you, so you know exactly what to expect and how many sessions to plan for going in.
The FDA has approved SculpSure to treat stubborn fat in a number of areas, including:
SculpSure offers permanent fat cell reduction. Once the fat cells are destroyed and eliminated from your target area, they never return. The SculpSure body contouring system also boasts an astounding patient satisfaction rate with over 94% of those who have had SculpSure treatment reporting positive results.
SculpSure can eliminate up to 20-25% of fat in the targeted area with just one treatment, and it’s safe. Some patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure and some redness afterwards, but this typically subsides quickly. Plus, as noninvasive treatment, SculpSure doesn’t carry the risks of infection and complications that can accompany a surgical weight loss procedure.
