SculpSure, the latest noninvasive device for body contouring is so new, that you probably have not ard about it yet. What is this newest, the latest, and is it greatest?
Liposuction was developed in the early 1970s to accommodate the people who could not lose weight or shed those ugly pounds with diet and exercise. Although not a weight loss procedure, much was touted about its ability to slim and shape an overweight person. Liposuction has undergone many refinements over the years. It is irreplaceable due to its ability to treat certain troublesome spots for many individuals. Some of the refinements for liposuction include tumescent, ultrasonic, laser, and power-assisted liposuction as well as others – all of which are available in our Orlando office. Despite these advancements, many individuals desire other alternatives to liposuction.
Mesotherapy – the injection of compounds that melt fat – has evolved into Kybella. Kybella has been recently approved to target fat in the neck region under the chin. This minimally invasive treatment involves injections over several treatments to reduce submental (beneath the chin) fat. Another technology involves radiofrequency that provides skin tightening along with fat reduction. Institute of Aesthetic Surgery introduced this technology with ThermiTight more than 3 years ago, and we have continually improved it since. This technology is now used for skin tightening in the neck region and is expanding to other areas, including targeting cellulite.
In our ever-persistent pursuit of an ideal body, many of us struggle with areas that seem resistant to diet and exercise. Some of the struggles commonly include cellulite and bulges around the thighs and torso. SculpSure may be the answer to many of these seemingly unsolvable problems. SculpSure is a laser treatment that heats the subcutaneous fat from the outside, using contact applicators. It is very well tolerated, as it alternates heat with cooling. In a large study in New York, there was a 24% reduction in bulges and an 85% satisfaction rate among the recipients after just one SculpSure treatment!
SculpSure is easy and virtually painless. In addition, anesthesia is not required and there is no downtime or recovery following treatment. SculpSure has already been approved by the FDA for the abdomen and flanks (torso), and it will receive approval for other areas as the trials continue to show results.
Diet and exercise – the universal recommendation for weight loss – should always be a part of the program but seems to have less effect on the outcome with SculpSure.
