Body Sculpting Q & A
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting is more than putting in the cardio time and pumping iron at the gym because some trouble spots don’t respond to diet and exercise. Advances in medical technology have introduced laser body sculpting treatments that heat and destroy your unwanted fat cells for permanent fat reduction. Body sculpting treatments reduce your fat and tighten your skin to create a toned and contoured appearance.
What issues does body sculpting correct?
Body sculpting treatments like SculpSure are FDA-cleared to heat and destroy fat cells in trouble spots. Areas body sculpting can treat include your:
- Inner and outer thighs
While body sculpting does eliminate fat, it’s not a weight-loss treatment. Body sculpting is most effective if you’ve already lost pounds and are close to your ideal body weight.
How does body sculpting work?
The SculpSure® technology we use has a unique four-headed applicator that your doctor configures into a customized shape to fit snugly against your body. The applicator delivers a specific wavelength of laser energy directly to the area being treated where it converts to heat and damages the structure of your fat cells. Then, over the next 6-12 weeks, your body processes the damaged fat cells and removes them from your body with other waste products, leaving you with a sculpted appearance.
What happens during a body sculpting treatment?
Body sculpting treatments with the SculpSure laser system only take 25 minutes and don’t require any time away from work for recovery. You can have a SculpSure treatment during your lunch break without having to take time off.
During your session, you rest on a treatment bed and your doctor straps the SculpSure applicator to your body securely. Then, you relax while the lasers heat and destroy your unwanted fat cells. Body sculpting treatments may cause a warming sensation and mild pressure.
Many patients find the procedure to be very tolerable, while others require the anesthetic nitrous oxide to provide a more comfortable experience. The team at Enhance at Aspen offers nitrous oxide to patients receiving body contouring treatments and discuss its use before treatment begins.
