Those last stubborn pounds or areas of fat that you just can’t get rid of no matter how much you diet or exercise is a problem many people have. There are many treatments and techniques dedicated to getting rid of that lingering excess fat. Some work better than others, and a few are pure quackery. And then there’s SculpSure, a technique that gives a client a slimmer silhouette in as little as 25 minutes. We are proud to offer it to our clients at our PSS MediSpa facilities in our Annapolis, Maryland offices.
How Does Sculpsure Work?
Medical experts have long known that fat cells can be damaged by temperatures that are lower than those needed to damage other tissues in the skin. SculpSure takes advantage of this technology by using applicators to heat up the fat cells that lie beneath the top layers of skin. At the same time, the skin itself is cooled. The heat, which is between 108 and 117 degrees Fahrenheit, injures the fat cells, and the detritus is removed by the body naturally over time in a process called apoptosis. When fat cells are removed, they don’t return.
The treatment works best when it’s applied to the client’s tummy or flanks. During a session, the applicators are held to the area by straps.
The intensity of the procedure is determined by the client’s comfort level. During the treatment, all clients need to do is sit in a chair or lie on an exam table in our dermatologist’s office. They can read, work or even take a nap.
SculpSure is appropriate for all skin types, whether very fair or very dark. The applicators don’t pull on or stretch the skin, as is the case with other procedures. There’s also no risk of either hypo or hyperpigmentation.
How Long Does A Treatment Last?
Each treatment lasts about 25 minutes. Some people may need only one treatment to achieve a noticeable flattening in the problem area, while others may need more treatments separated by a few weeks.
After the treatment, there may be some bruising and swelling in the area that can be soothed with an application of an ice pack. Our clients may feel a bit of firmness in the treated area, but that will go away after a few days, as will any tenderness.
