After working hard to lose weight, stubborn pockets of fat can remain in common problem areas such as your thighs, abdomen, and under your chin. This remaining fat can prevent you from looking and feeling your best. The good news is that body contouring procedures are available that can further improve your appearance and give you a smoother, more sculpted look.
Here at Marina Medispa, Dr. Marina Metelitsin recommends SculpSure®, a noninvasive laser treatment that effectively removes fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. Read on to learn how Sculpsure can get rid of stubborn fat pockets after weight loss.
Sculpsure is a body-slimming technology that uses laser energy to destroy fat cells. Each session takes only about 25 minutes, after which you can return to your regular activities immediately. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body’s natural detoxification process permanently removes them.
This is different from fat loss from diet and exercise, which causes fat cells to shrink but doesn’t destroy them. Sculpsure gets rid of fat for good. Because of the safety and effectiveness of Sculpsure, Dr. Metelitsin recommends this treatment for patients who have stubborn areas of fat.
During the Sculpsure session, you’ll sit or lie comfortably, depending on the treatment area. The Sculpsure device is attached to an applicator and applied to the skin. You can expect to feel a warmth as the laser energy penetrates your skin. You may feel a slight burning sensation, but rest assured that your skin will remain cool to the touch. A single session destroys roughly 24% of fat cells in the treatment area.
Your lymphatic system is responsible for clearing out the damaged fat cells. Drinking plenty of water and massaging the treatment area can help the process along. Most people start to see results within six weeks, while maximum results are typically seen at around 12 weeks. You should notice that the treated area is slimmer and that your body is more contoured.
While you can expect to see results after just one session, most people see the best results when they have multiple treatments. The number of treatments for you to achieve the best results depends on a number of factors, and Dr. Metelitsin recommends a treatment plan that’s right for you.
On average, people feel highly satisfied after treating each area at least twice. It’s typical to spread treatments six to eight weeks apart so that optimal improvement can occur..
