Live In the Body You Want This Year With SculpSure

Everyone has those stubborn fatty areas where endless crunches fail. So, you try various forms of exercise and diet to wage war on stubborn fat. In fact, 45% of people in 2018 made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight.

We at Wasatch Peak Family Practice offer a straightforward and alternative way to get rid of those extra love handles with SculpSure. Here’s how the noninvasive treatment works.

What you should expect during a SculpSure treatment

Paddles are attached to the target area, and wearing the device is like wearing a belt. In the beginning, the machine is cool, but soon the paddles warm. The heat increases until it tingles your skin, but the temperature reduces before the paddles get too hot, treating fat at the cellular level.

Ever wonder why you can’t beat that extra fat, even with a restrictive diet and more frequent workouts? Fat loss happens at the cellular level as these cells shrink and expand. So, eradicating fat at this level provides a simpler way to beat stubborn fat without invasive surgery.

SculpSure uses heat technology to target fat cells without waiting and suffering through freezing treatments that may bruise your skin. It beats having liposuction tubes attached like tentacles to your body.

The average SculpSure treatment lasts only 25 minutes and can remove 24% of fat cells in the targeted area. Concentrated heat shocks the fat cells, and the applicators use a 1060-nanometer diode laser that reaches temperatures of 107.6°F and 116.6°F to eradicate fat cells. No tissue is harmed. Your body uses its natural process to eliminate the damaged fat cells through the lymphatic system.

Most notice the shift around six weeks after treatment, and the most noticeable change occurs 12 weeks after your last session. Many patients only opt for two treatments to eliminate their problem areas.

Before you head in for treatment, you may consider taking an aspirin or blood thinner to prevent bruising. Please check to see if these have interactions with any current medications you take.

After receiving the treatment, your skin will feel a little tender. The tenderness may persist for one or two days in a few patients, but clears up quickly. Most patients complete their treatments without any bruising or discomfort.  

Which problem areas does SculpSure target?

In 2017, an expansion of the FDA 510(k) clearance was granted by the Food and Drug Administration for SculpSure to target problem fatty areas in various parts of the body, such as the bra line, love handles, stomach, back, arms, and inner and outer thighs. Even scar tissue resulting from fat pockets is eligible for treatment with SculpSure.

SculpSure isn’t for those who intend to use the procedure as a weight loss treatment in place of exercise and diet. The treatment targets problem areas that remain unresponsive to working out and eating healthily.

You make major adjustments to your lifestyle to lose weight and improve your overall health. With so much work, you expect to witness results after putting in the effort. However, the body naturally functions in a way that can prevent fat loss from your love handles and other stubborn areas. Though this is totally natural, you may suffer from a dip in self-confidence that leaks into other areas of life.

Live in the body you want this year. Get rid of those problem areas once and for all with SculpSure, a noninvasive heat procedure that fights fat at the cellular level. Schedule a consultation with us to discover more about SculpSure. Trust in the team at Wasatch Peak Family Practice to help you achieve the confidence you deserve.
