During the treatment itself, most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment, which is generally well tolerated. The procedure uses a hyperthermic laser, which penetrates fat tissue and heats it to between 42°- 47°C. Whilst Contact Cooling™ technology keeps you comfortable during treatment.
Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and therefore will not regenerate. This allows patients to start seeing results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to remove the broken down fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks. Results can be maximised by ensuring you keep to a healthy lifestyle, this will only assist in achieving the body shape and contour you desire.
There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately. There are also no problems with flying or sunbathing after having our SculpSure treatment. Therefore, this treatment provides a quick recovery in comparison to a surgical procedures.
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remains constant throughout our adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will not return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells becomes smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people can have difficulty losing weight in these problem areas.
