Do SculpSure treatments hurt?

If you feel self-conscious about  lingering fat on your abdomen and flanks, you may be a suitable candidate for SculpSure. SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment that  contours the body in just 25 minutes, and it can melt away up to 24% of the treated fat. But do SculpSure treatments hurt?

SculpSure
SculpSure is indicated for treating fat on the abdomen and flanks. It uses a diode 1064nm laser to heat and then destroy the fat cells. The laser energy bypasses the outer epidermal layer of the skin, and penetrates down to the fat below the surface.

The laser precisely heats the fat cells, so there is no damage to the skin or other tissues. The fat cells start to break down as soon as the temperature gets to 45 degrees Celsius. The cells that are destroyed are eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system, and are gone for good.

There is no downtime with SculpSure, so patients can return to their normal activities after treatment.

Do SculpSure treatments hurt
The laser used for SculpSure treatment produces a sensation of heat, and some patients also experience intermittent tingling.  These side-effects are generally not a problem, as most patients tolerate the treatment very well. However, treatment may be uncomfortable for patients that are more sensitive to heat.

SculpSure also has a contact cooling system that prevents the laser from over-heating the skin, and this helps to enhance patient comfort.

If you are ready to say goodbye to stubborn fat, but don’t want to face possible complications from a surgical procedure, SculpSure may be the right choice for you.

Can Ultherapy be used anywhere else?

Ultherapy is a revolutionary facial rejuvenation technology that both lifts and tightens the skin. It is a unique approach that uses safe and gentle ultrasound waves to revitalize the face without surgery or downtime, but can Ultherapy be used anywhere else.

Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive facial treatment that tightens loose, sagging skin through the power of ultrasound. The procedure requires no anesthetic, and there is minimal pain, and no recovery time.

The device emits powerful micro-focused ultrasound waves that lift the skin and the deep structural support layers below it, which are normally addressed by a surgical facelift. Treating the muscle layer of the skin contributes to the growth of fresh, new collagen over time. This tones the skin from within, making it firmer and more elastic.

Treating the entire face can take about 60 minutes, and most patients only need one treatment to see the desired results.

Can Ultherapy be used anywhere else?
Ultherapy is currently cleared by the FDA for the treatment of lax skin on the face and neck. It is particularly effective on the brows, because it lifts the brows and opens up the eyes.

Ultherapy has also been used successfully to treat loose skin on other parts of the body, such as the stomach and arms. However, this is regarded as ‘off-label’ use of the treatment, because it has not received FDA clearance for use in these areas.

If you are considering Ultherapy, be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon, or dermatologist.

Ultherapy treatment is available in Orange County at Song Plastic Surgery located in Irvine, CA.
