In an ideal world, your body would kindly distribute any extra pounds in just the right places, leaving you beautifully shaped and well-proportioned. In the real world, however, your body may decide that your tummy, hips, or thighs are the perfect place to keep a good amount of your extra fat, leaving you fuller or thicker in places you’d rather be flatter or thinner.
This is where SculpSure® noninvasive body sculpting comes in — it gives you an easy way to target the exact areas of persistent fat you’d like to get rid of. And with an impressive patient satisfaction rate of over 90%, SculpSure has an exceptional track record that makes it one of the most in-demand body-sculpting treatments available.
This past week, the hype has been about the non-invasive, fat loss warm sculpting treatment introduced to the Maldives, that promise to permanently destroy body fat cells. These treatments are American FDA approved for the submental, thighs, abdomen, shoulders and upper arms, the flanks and back but the treatment can be done anywhere on the body.
What is SculpSure?
It’s an FDA-approved NON-INVASIVE laser treatment that destroys excess fat cells on the abdomen, sides of the torso, back, inner and outer thighs, and under-the-chin area. Once the fat is destroyed, it is naturally permanently eliminated from the body.
What makes this treatment different from other body contouring methods?
It feathers the heat, so the results are more natural and there isn’t the risk of dents, dimpling, or sharp demarcations between what is treated and untreated. Because it uses heat rather than cooling, it can potentially stimulate collagen and targets to improve skin texture and skin tightening. The applicators used to allow more customization.
What is the treatment process like, and how does it get rid of body fat cells?
It uses a laser to heat and damage fat cells. The SculpSure laser machine is attached to a belt with holders, of which the patient wears in the specific treatment area. The holders are attached to the area that is being treated. The number of applicators used is based on the size of the area and ranges from one to four.
The patient feels heat alternated with cooling. The total treatment takes approximately 25 minutes to complete, and one treatment is said to remove up to 24% of the fat cells in the area. However, one on one consultations regarding the treatments are part of the routine to achieve optimal results.
How soon do you see results?
You’re not going to see an immediate change. It takes approximately six weeks to start seeing results and 12 weeks for final results. While the fat cells are reportedly permanently destroyed and will not regenerate, the experts at Nada Salon suggests results are best seen when the patient maintains their weight and follows a healthy routine.
What’s the downtime after the treatment?
The fact that there isn’t any downtime is one of the reasons this treatment is getting so popular. After the treatment, the area may feel slightly sore and you may experience a bit of light swelling and these are generally transient and resolve spontaneously. However, you can go back to normal activities immediately.
Who is the ideal candidate?
An ideal candidate is someone who has localized, stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise.
It’s important to note that this shouldn’t be considered a weight-loss treatment. Before getting the contouring treatment though, you should consult with Sculpsure experts at the Nada Salon to see if it’s safe for you.
