We’ve always been an image-obsessed society, and historically, many different shapes and sizes of bodies have been favored over others at different times. At one point, it was all the rage to have larger hips and a wider waist, because this was the mark of the ability for a woman to bear healthy children; at yet another time, boyish figures or waspy waists were favored. The United States often leads the way in these fashion trends, and the tide has turned yet again.
In our quest for our desired body shape, we’ve become focused on nonsurgical cosmetic treatments to help achieve our goals for our appearance, especially ones that can save time and offer faster results. Of course, each person, no matter their gender, has specific areas of their body they’re hoping to transform, and many of these include the reduction of stubborn body fat. No matter if you’re a man or a woman, looking your best takes a lot of time and hard work, and everyone strives to lose excess fat and gain a contoured body shape that favors their unique style. At Spa in the City, SculpSure is the newest innovation, using heat energy at specific, calibrated wavelengths to adhere to fat cells and cause them to melt off of your body.
Common Areas of Excess Body Fat:
- Abdomen (stomach pooch)
- Flanks (spare tire and love handles)
- Under the chin
- Backs of the knees
Why SculpSure to reduce excess fat?
Patients from all over Texas come to us at Spa in the City, wanting to know more about SculpSure and how to trim down fat that has accumulated in specific places over the years. Even if you’ve taken the time to watch your calories, carbs, sugars, and all the other important factors to reduce the amount of extra body fat you accumulate, you’re bound to find a spot that just won’t budge. But SculpSure can ease your worries, since this system was designed to help patients like you slim down and accentuate your natural curves. Especially if you’re someone that isn’t keen on liposuction, now you can get the same result with SculpSure – slimming down 25 percent or more body fat in all the places you treat.
The SculpSure Treatment
SculpSure melts the fat off of your stubborn love handles or around the tummy, arms and legs by heating up your fat cells to a comfortable but effective level. Not just any heat will do, but a specified wavelength of 1060nm at 45-47-degrees C is the optimal temperature that will cause a change in the cell’s protective coating. How do we do that? During your SculpSure treatment, your aesthetician will strap four open plates on your body configured to the area you want to be treated. For example, if you want to treat a small portion of the belly and your flanks at the same time we can place two plates on your sides and two on the belly. Then special heating devices that deliver the energy through the skin to the fat layer are snapped into the open plates to begin.
As the machine heats your tissues, you’ll notice a warming sensation that should remain comfortable throughout the treatment. If you’re feeling a little too warm, SculpSure will send cooling waves through to the surface of your skin. The SculpSure device will monitor the temperature and deliver consistent heat to targeted fat cells. Each SculpSure treatment will only take 25 minutes, but could be longer if you want to treat a few spots in one session. After the treatment, you can go to the gym or back to work; any activity is fine after SculpSure because all you have to do is let the heat energy work its magic over the next few months. You may see some slight swelling in the area after any heat energy treatment, but it won’t last long.
After Your SculpSure Treatment
Before we perform SculpSure, we’ll snap a few photos for you so that you can compare what you looked like before SculpSure. Every patient that maintains a healthy weight sees marked improvement after SculpSure, with results appearing after six to 12 weeks. Any secondary treatments can be done a few months later if you would like to focus on a different area. We encourage our patients to allow their fat cells time to lose volume before thinking about retreating the same area. You’ll see definition that hadn’t been there before, and feel the difference in your clothing.
