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 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.
