What is SculpSure™?
An excellent, non-surgical alternative to liposuction, SculpSure™ is an FDA, non-invasive body contouring treatment. It can be used to reduce fat in the abdominal area, particularly on the left and right flanks. Because many men carry fat in these areas as they age, we offer SculpSure™ treatments specifically tailored to address the subtleties of the male physique.
How Does it Work?
SculpSure™ utilizes the power of light-based energy to heat up fat cells while leaving the surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. As fat cells heat up, they begin to rupture and eventually die. Over time, the immune system clears out these dead cells, removing them out completely around three months after treatment. Clinical studies have shown that SculpSure™ can reduce fat in these areas by 24% after just one treatment session.
What can I Expect from a SculpSure™ Treatment?
Each SculpSure™ treatment takes about twenty-five minutes to complete. Most patients find the treatment to be painless and relaxing, with few instances of discomfort reported. Because SculpSure™ is non-invasive, absolutely no anesthesia is required.
Following treatment, you can return to your daily activities immediately — there’s absolutely no downtime! It’s important to keep in mind that because it takes time for your body to process and remove the fat cells destroyed in this procedure, results will become visible over time. You will gradually start to see changes within the first six weeks of treatment, with full results becoming apparent after about three months. Typically, only one treatment is required to obtain dramatic results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for SculpSure™ for men treatments is at or near his ideal body weight and is interested in sculpting out a more toned, lean abdominal area. Anyone far from their ideal body weight should begin practicing healthy diet and exercise habits before undergoing a SculpSure™ treatment.
When Will I See Results and How Long will They Last?
Because the body removes fat slowly over time, the full results of a SculpSure™ treatment typically take about 12 weeks to manifest themselves. While SculpSure™ lowers the overall number of fat cells in the treatment area, extreme weight gain can reverse the effects of treatment.
Depending on the extent of fat removal and body contouring that you desire, multiple SculpSure™ treatments may be required to obtain the best results.
Is SculpSure™ Safe?
This treatment has been approved by the FDA, meaning that it has been clinically tested and has a proven safety profile. The procedure itself is painless, relaxing, and can be completed in 25 short minutes.
While it’s true that results vary from patient to patient, Dr. Reihm works with each patient to devise a treatment that is best for his individual needs.
