SculpSure®: Say Goodbye to that Muffin Top

You’ve been dieting and exercising. You’ve been working hard to recover from the holidays and get ready for summer, swimsuits, and shorts, but you still have a stubborn bulge of fat on your abdomen that you just can’t shift no matter what you do. Don’t worry. You aren’t alone in having a trouble spot that won’t slim down and tone up. Fortunately, SculpSure® can help.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative fat reduction treatment that uses carefully calibrated laser energy to heat and destroy your stubborn pockets of unwanted fat. SculpSure was designed by the medical laser experts at CynoSure, and in clinical trials, it damages up to 24% of the targeted fat cells in just one 25-minute treatment. SculpSure

SculpSure works by raising the temperature of your fat cells. The heat damages the structure of the cells, effectively killing them. Then, over the next 12 weeks, your body flushes out the damaged fat cells, leaving you with a more slender appearance. Additionally, SculpSure stimulates collagen coagulation and production in your skin, which tightens your skin for an even more toned appearance.

Does SculpSure hurt?

Everyone reacts a little differently to SculpSure, and some patients tolerate it better than others. The SculpSure applicators include a cooling element that regulates the temperature of your skin during the treatment, preventing you from getting too hot. Some patients say it feels like a hot stone massage. The team at Morris Medical Center puts your comfort and safety first, so if you start to feel too hot or that the treatment is too much, let your provider know immediately.

What happens during a SculpSure treatment?

During your treatment, you sit in a comfortable reclining chair, and a member of the team at Morris Medical Center attaches the SculpSure applicator to your body. SculpSure has a unique four-headed device that your provider can configure to fit your target area precisely to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment.

Once the applicator is strapped into place and the SculpSure equipment is turned on, you simply relax. Some patients nap; others read. If you need to, you can even catch up on your emails, although the team at Morris Medical Center recommends that you enjoy the 25 minutes to yourself and relax.

When your treatment is over, you can get right back to your regular activities. There’s no need to take time off to recover — although you should avoid any strenuous exercise that will raise your temperature for about 24 hours after your treatment. Some patients even schedule their appointment for their lunch hour and go back to work without anyone knowing they took a step to get rid of their unwanted fat.

When will I see results?

You may feel like your body looks more toned within a few days. However, your body needs a little time to identify the damaged fat cells and remove them through your lymphatic system. Your results should become more noticeable over the 12 weeks following your treatment.

SculpSure is most effective if you’re already close to your ideal body weight. If you need help losing weight, Dr. Morris and his team provide customized, medically supervised weight loss programs and other treatments to help you achieve your goals.

If you want to find out if SculpSure is right for you, call Morris Medical Center, or make an appointment online today. Dr. Morris and his team are committed to helping you look and feel your best. They know how hard you’re working for a slim, healthy body, and SculpSure can help you get rid of those last stubborn inches.
