What is Warmsculpting?
SculpSure® is one of the most popular non-invasive body contouring treatments available on the market today. This technique uses the gentle power of laser energy to bring patients up to a 24% reduction of fat in the treated area. SculpSure® is FDA-cleared for use on the upper stomach, lower stomach, flanks, legs and for the double chin. WarmSculpting has a 90% rate of patient satisfaction.
How Does it Work?
SculpSure® harnesses the gentle but effective power of laser energy to eliminate fat from the body. During treatment, laser energy of a specific wavelength is directed at the treatment area. This energy passes through the uppermost layer of the skin and is absorbed by the body’s fat cells as heat. As these fat cells heat up, they begin to rupture and die. In the weeks following treatment, these fat cells are slowly removed from the body, leaving patients with a slimmer, more sculpted appearance.
Because SculpSure® decreases the overall number of fat cells in the treatment area, the fat reduction brought on by this technique lasts for years after treatment. Patients can feel comfortable knowing they’re undergoing a procedure that is both effective and long-lasting.
SculpSure® for Submental Fat
Is your double chin keeping you from having full confidence in your appearance? The latest advancement in SculpSure® technology, allows the innovative laser energy process to be targeted toward stubborn fat below the chin. In one treatment patients notice an average of a 25% reduction in their double chin and a more sculpted jaw line. Ask us about this treatment option during your consultation!
What Should I Expect from Treatment?
During treatment, a band is placed over the treatment area. Once this band is secured, SculpSure® applicators are secured in custom-fitted slots along the band over the specific areas the patient is having treated. Once treatment begins, patients feel an alternation of long periods of warming and short, quick periods of cooling. The treatment over 1 area takes a short 25 minutes to complete and involves absolutely no downtime.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly any man or woman interested in removing stubborn fat is a potential candidate for a SculpSure® treatment. However, it’s important for patients to keep in mind that this is not a weight loss procedure. While SculpSure® is a great way for patients to tighten and tone problem areas, it can not be used for extreme weight loss. It works best in patient’s who are healthy and can maintain their weight with regular exercise and a balanced diet.
FlexSure is a radiofrequency device that is FDA- cleared to tighten skin. When you come in for your body contouring consultation with Dr. Norris, she will examine the area that you wish to treat to determine if the area is mostly fat, mostly loose skin or a little of both. When there is a combination of fat and skin laxity in the area that is bothering you, FlexSure may be the right choice for your body contouring treatment.
FlexSure utilizes high-tech adhesive pads that contour to your body and emit radiofrequency heat energy. During the 15 minute treatment, the radiofrequency energy induces collagen production that will tighten the skin and it also can reach temperatures that cause permanent fat destruction in some patients. The degree of fat destruction is not as much as with Warmsculpting but it is still noticeable in before and after pictures.
FlexSure is most commonly used to treat upper arms, inner thighs, above the knees, abdomen, and flanks. It is appropriate for men and women who are healthy and can maintain their weight with regular exercise and a balanced diet. You should not have FlexSure if you have any implantable medical devices in your body.
The FlexSure procedure feels warm but there is no discomfort and no downtime.
