SculpSure® Treatment in Kenosha For Non-Surgical Fat Removal
Looking for SculpSure® Treatment in Kenosha, WI? Affordable Beauty’s passions are dedicated to helping people reach and maintain their weight goals in a safe manner to enhance overall health. Yet, we recognize that even with a high-performance diet and exercise, people may still be left with stubborn areas of unwanted fat. SculpSure® treatments are the solution for it all! It provides secure, non-invasive laser treatment to remove stubborn fat and can give you the body that reflects your hard work. The most commonly treated areas would be the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, “love handles” and back. An attachment to the SculpSure® body treatment is the contouring system that can target fat under the chin, resulting in a more contoured, defined jawline.
How does it work?
Within 25 minutes, this treatment that is a completely safe, non-invasive, laser-based body contouring procedure is designed to destroy stubborn fat cells. We use a controlled hyperthermic technology, and the fat cells undergo temperature injury from the targeted laser, and pass 1060-nm diode laser light through the skin and elevate adipose tissue (fat) to a temperature between 108 and 117 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the optimal temperature for eliminating unwanted fat cells.
When the laser is delivering heat to the fat cells, the skin is kept cool and protected by the sapphire surface which is part of the laser delivery system. SculpSure® Treatments will safely work on all skin types ranging from very fair to very dark, without risk of hypo or hyperpigmentation. Once those fat cells die, the immune system will clear the body of the dead cells, which will then shrink the treatment area.
SculpSure®’s unique applicators can be arranged to any custom placement, to best treat the patient’s requested area(s). While lying down, the applicators are on top of the targeted skin area, and energy penetrates into the fat tissue. Clinical studies examining before and after ultrasound measurements found up to a 24% average reduction of adipose tissue after a single treatment. Some patients report a tingling or burning sensation during the procedure, therefore we monitor and communicate closely with the patient throughout the treatment to adjust and ensure patient comfort. Immediately afterward, our patients can return to their normal daily activities.
If you have struggled to reduce that last bit of fat and just can’t seem to, consider non-invasive SculpSure® treatment. A 25-minute treatment can provide you with a slimmer silhouette. We are proud to offer this at Affordable Beauty.
Frequently Asked Questions
SculpSure is not a weight loss treatment, but is meant to spot reduce areas of stubborn fat. Because the procedure is safe and non-invasive, there are few contraindications besides pregnancy, breastfeeding and an open skin lesion or rash.
Most areas require two sessions spaced apart by about 6 weeks. Each session removes up to 24% of fat in the targeted treatment areas. Some patients choose to treat more than one treatment area.
Most patients describe the sensation as deep warmth and tingling, which is well tolerated. The intensity of the treatment is adjusted for each patient’s comfort level.
Although the treatment damages fat cells immediately, it takes your body time to flush them from your system. For this reason, the earliest results are generally seen approximately 6 weeks after treatment with final results achieved around 12 weeks after the procedure.
SculpSure is non-invasive, safe and comfortable and is administered without anesthesia, which means you can return to work immediately following the treatment. Some people receive SculpSure on their lunch break and miss no work time at all. Patients are able to continue their daily routine, including exercising that day.
