What To Do About Stubborn Belly Fat

What To Do About Stubborn Belly Fat

At the private practice of dermatologist Allen A. Flood, MD, in Washington, DC, we hear from countless men and women who are frustrated by stubborn belly fat that won’t budge — even when they’re at a healthy weight and exercise regularly. 

The good news is that you don’t have to battle the bulge any longer thanks to advancements in aesthetic technology. We love to use FDA-cleared SculpSure® to gently and safely melt away stubborn belly fat.

Banish stubborn belly fat with SculpSure

SculpSure is a medical laser that uses targeted wavelengths of heat. These wavelengths of heat energy can reach and destroy fat cells, but don’t affect other types of tissue. Here’s a closer look at how this amazing device works.

The SculpSure wand sends the right wavelengths of energy into your fat cells to destroy their structural integrity. This causes them to break apart and die. Most of our patients tell us they find SculpSure comfortable, with only a mild warming sensation. 

After the targeted cells break apart and die, your body’s lymphatic system absorbs them and removes them as part of your natural cellular waste removal process. Once the stubborn fat cells disappear, they don’t come back. But if you gain weight after your treatment, you might develop larger pockets of fat in other areas.

Areas SculpSure can treat

No doubt about: Stubborn belly fat remains one of the most popular treatment areas for SculpSure contouring. But since SculpSure is incredibly safe, we routinely treat other areas that attract stubborn fat, including:

We customize your treatment plan, so if you’d like to target several areas, we can schedule your session to include multiple zones at the same time. Sessions usually take less than a half hour, and you can return to activities right away, making SculpSure the perfect appointment for your lunch break.

What to expect from SculpSure

SculpSure results depend on many factors, including the amount of fat you’re seeking to reduce. But rest easy knowing SculpSure treatments are highly effective. In fact, clinical studies show that, on average, patients experience a 24% reduction in fat in each treatment zone. 

Results aren't immediate. It takes time for your lymphatic system to remove the destroyed fat cells. You can expect to see a difference in size in about six weeks, with optimal results appearing about 12 weeks after your treatment. 

Say goodbye to stubborn belly fat with the help of SculpSure and our team at Allen A. Flood, MD, Dermatology on Capitol Hill. Call our office today to schedule an appointment.
