Rebuilding Your Body Confidence With SculpSure

New year, new you! One of the most common New Year’s resolutions, by far, is to get in shape. The specifics may vary from person to person, but the end goal is to feel better about your body. Unfortunately, this is sometimes easier said than done. Fat cells can be stubborn and refuse to shrink no matter how much you diet or exercise.

If this sounds like you, there are still options to get the body you desire before the warmer weather rolls in. Allen A. Flood, MD, offers SculpSure® at his practice in Washington, D.C. SculpSure is designed to help men and women who have nearly reached their target weight get rid of those last few pounds.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is not a substitute for diet and exercise. It is, however, a great solution for those problem areas that don’t bow to diet and exercise. This FDA-approved laser treatment is noninvasive, isn’t painful, and has little to no downtime, making it perfect for patients with busy lives.

One of the best things about the SculpSure system is the ability to target specific areas, meaning you can lose your belly weight without losing fat in surrounding areas that you may want to keep. Many SculpSure patients, for instance, want to keep fat cells in their chest area, but they want to lose fat cells in their stomach region.

How does SculpSure work?

Working out and eating right doesn’t actually remove fat cells from your body. Instead, it simply shrinks them to give the illusion of losing weight. Unfortunately, they are still there, and they can regrow if you ease up on working out and eating right.

What makes SculpSure special is that the system uses laser energy to target and destroy fat cells, not just shrink them. The destroyed fat cells are then eliminated naturally by your body.

Unlike invasive weight loss procedures, SculpSure requires no anesthesia, no special instructions, and no downtime. You can even have the procedure performed on your lunch break.

When will I see results?

You will begin seeing results within a few weeks of treatment, with full results within 6-12 weeks as your body continues eliminating the destroyed fat cells. Treatments typically consist of 3-5 appointments.

After 12 weeks, you should see the results you want. As long as you maintain your diet and exercise regimen, you should continue being pleased with your results.

Am I a candidate for SculpSure?

Typical candidates for SculpSure have spot areas they would like to treat, such as the abdomen, arms, thighs, and chin. If you’re already working out and eating well, you may just need to lose a few inches in your abdomen, for example. In this case, SculpSure may be the perfect option for you. SculpSure is not a good option if you have a lot of weight to lose in multiple areas of your body.
