How SculpSure Can Help You Slim Down Without Surgery

If there’s one issue that nearly everyone can share stories (and gripes) about it’s weight management. No one really likes talking about their weight, but everyone could probably go on and on about all of the things they’ve tried in order to slim down without getting the exact results that they want. There is, of course, the rare person whose metabolism stays at the pace of a ravenous teenager for decades, but those people are few and far between. For everyone else, things begin to slow down as they leave their 20s. However, weight loss can be an issue at any age. If you’ve struggled with your weight for years you know how frustrating the process can be.

Even if you’ve managed to shed pounds with diet and exercise, you’re often left with that frustrating last bit of “a little extra” in areas like the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and flanks. These are most people’s “problem areas” and it’s common to hear complaints that diet and exercise don’t seem to slim them down enough. While you’ve probably lost a good deal of weight naturally, the fat in these spots tends to be stubborn. It’s at this point that you may want to speak with your doctor about what your options are. If you’ve exhausted your natural solutions, it may be time to consider a body contouring treatment like SculpSure.


Why do we have trouble in these areas?

If most of us can relate to carrying some extra weight in these areas, why is it so common? How can so many people retain fat in the same spots? It all comes down to hormones and genetics. That seemingly sudden slowdown in our metabolism at a certain age has taken on the name of the “middle aged spread.” Of course this holding on of weight doesn’t magically begin at 40 for everyone. You can struggle with this at any age. But, generally, it happens as we get older because of the hormonal shifts that cause us to process food differently and metabolize it slower. We’re also genetically predisposed to hanging onto fat in these spots. It can be quite difficult to overcome our natural bodily processes to hold onto this weight. It takes a lot of work to slim down these problem areas. However, just because it’s difficult doesn’t mean you should give up on your diet and exercise plan. It’s still the best way to get in shape and it’ll get you in the place you need to be to take full advantage of a procedure like SculpSure.


Why lifestyle changes are so important

Sure, you may not be able to get rid of all the fat in your abdomen from eating cleaner and working out more. But, it will certainly help get you very close to the finish line, which is the key when it comes to a body contouring treatment. If you give up on your lifestyle changes, you’re at risk for putting weight back on which would obviously be counterproductive. Additionally, eating better and exercising regularly aren’t just about your weight. They also improve your overall health, which is the most important thing. Maintaining a good weight and eating the right food can help lower your chances of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.

But, at the end of the day, we all want to look good. With that in mind, here’s how SculpSure can help you achieve the body you want.

How SculpSure works

SculpSure is a non-invasive and FDA-cleared laser treatment designed to permanently eliminate fat cells in the body. It is not liposuction, so it’s not as dramatic in how much fat it removes from the body. That’s why you need to already be close to your goal weight in order to take advantage of SculpSure. However, it’s also much easier on the body. There is no use of anesthesia, no incisions, no recovery time, and no post-treatment complications.

The use of lasers makes the whole procedure painless. What happens is the applicator is directed onto the targeted area of your body that is being treated. The highly concentrated laser energy then penetrates deep into the tissue and damages the fat cells. While this sounds like it could be painful, only mild sensations of heat are felt because the applicator cools the area at the same time. Then, over the next 6-12 weeks your body will naturally dispose of the damaged fat cells. You’ll see some results by week 6, with full results usually seen around week 12 following treatment. A session lasts only about a half hour.


Conclusion
