Are diet and exercise just not doing it for you? Even with the best intentions and workout regimens, fat can be stubborn and hard to lose completely. That’s why Dr. Susan Cislo and Dr. Thomas McCombs at Bay Area Osteopathic — located in American Canyon, where the Napa Valley meets the San Francisco Bay Area — now offer SculpSure® services. This noninvasive laser treatment allows you to trim down your appearance with no surgery or downtime. Get in touch with us today to schedule an appointment.
SculpSure is a noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure that uses a heating technique to remove that unwanted fat you just can’t shed with diet and exercise. The treatments only last about 25 minutes with little to no side effects. The technology targets fat cells under the skin and heats those cells with the SculpSure laser, without actually affecting the skin.
The laser damages the targeted fat cells, and eventually, your body eliminates them over the three months following the procedure. Basically, your body’s lymphatic system responds to the damaging of fat cells by getting rid of them. You’ll notice the results in as soon as six weeks, and up to 12 weeks.
And, what’s more, fat cells will not regenerate. They are permanently removed with the SculpSure technology.
You’ll feel a cooling sensation at the start of the treatment, which helps you stay comfortable and balanced while the laser is doing its work. This ensures you don’t get too hot during the process. You may also feel a tingling or warming sensation, but nothing painful.
Yes, the procedure is completely safe and was cleared by the FDA in 2015. You can receive the treatment on stubborn fat in a variety of problem areas, including your stomach, love handles, back, thighs, and under your chin. These areas have all been FDA-cleared.
Some patients see up to 24% destruction of treated fat cells with just one 25-minute treatment, completely without surgery. Of course, results will vary for each individual.
There is no recovery period or downtime with the SculpSure procedure. As soon as you’re done, you can get dressed and get back to your normal daily life.
Because the procedure has no effect on your skin’s surface, there will be no sign that you had the treatment, aside from the slimming effect you’ll notice in as little as six weeks.
Usually SculpSure works best with a series of laser treatments. However, you are unique, so the team at Bay Area Osteopathic will discuss what’s best for you specifically.
If you’re ready to learn more about how this noninvasive treatment can help you reduce your unwanted “pudge,” schedule an appointment with Dr. Cislo or Dr. McCombs today.
