We are pleased to announce the arrival of an exciting new fat reduction treatment La Chele Medical Aesthetics in New Hope! To determine whether SculpSure™ is the right treatment for you, please call (215) 862-6100 to schedule your complimentary consultation!
What is it?
SculpSure™ is a completely non-surgical and non-invasive laser treatment that is FDA-approved for fat reduction in the abdomen and flanks (“love handles”). This 25-minute procedure, done at our premiere medical facility in New Hope, offers noticeable yet natural results!
Am I a candidate?
The ideal candidate for SculpSure™ is an individual who holds excess fat in their abdomen and flank area but is near their ideal body weight. If you think of SculpSure as body contouring and shaping procedure, it makes sense that someone who has followed a proper diet and exercise regimen but is struggling to get rid of stubborn fat would be highly satisfied with the results of SculpSure™!
How it works?
SculpSure™ works by controlled hyperthermic fat reduction, which essentially means directing laser energy into fat tissue. This energy heats fat cells to a temperature (42°-47° C) that initiates the fat loss process. Your body will then naturally eliminate the disrupted fat cells over time. Each treatment cycle lasts 25 minutes and uses up to four independent applicators during each cycle. In a single hour up to four areas can be treated. Results can typically be noticed as early as 6 weeks with optimal results shown at approximately 12 weeks.
How many treatments do I need?
Each treatment will remove between 20 and 25% of fat in the area being treated and many patients are satisfied with their result after just one treatment. However, additional treatments may be performed to achieve the desire result. Your results will be assessed at a follow-up appointment, during which time you can be reevaluated for additional treatments.
What are the risks and side effects?
SculpSure™ does not cause any damage to the dermal tissue. After the treatment is completed, some mild swelling and tenderness or a bruised feeling are all common. Occasionally, some mild firmness in the treated fat can develop but will subside over subsequent weeks. Any tenderness will typically go away after a week or two. The recovery from SculpSure™ is self-limiting, meaning you can return to your normal daily activities, including exercise, as soon as you feel you’re ready!
Is it painful?
SculpSure™ is a very well-tolerated procedure; patients have reported that this treatment has minimal discomfort. The SculpSure™ device features Contact CoolingTM for increased patient comfort.
SculpSure™ vs CoolSculpting™
SculpSure™ and CoolSculpting™ are both extremely effective in noninvasively removing excess fat; however, they target fat cells in different ways. While Coolsculpting™ utilizes cryolipolysis (freezing), SculpSure™ uses heat to destroy these cells. Some individuals may be better candidates to treat certain areas with Sculpture and others with CoolSculpting™. We invite you to come in for a consultation to see which laser is a better fit for you!
Is SculpSure™ safe for darker skin types?
Yes. The 1060 laser does not interact with melanin in the skin; therefore, individuals with darker skin types can safely reduce areas of unwanted fat.
Can I combine SculpSure with other non-surgical fat reduction treatments?
Absolutely. At La Chele Medical Aesthetics, we recognize the importance of combination therapy. By utilizing different fat reduction and skin tightening treatments like Coolsculpting and Ultherapy we are able to achieve the best results. We will devise a treatment plan that is customized for your specific goals and needs.
