Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

In the past, body contouring was synonymous with surgery. The only option beyond diet and exercise for patients seeking a flatter stomach or thinner thighs was a tummy tuck or liposuction. 

Today, noninvasive treatments painlessly reduce fat by targeting fat cells and eliminating them through controlled heating of the area. Stubborn pockets of fat disappear through the body's lymphatic system, all while patients resume their regular activities.

What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure uses lasers to target and eliminate fat without anesthesia or incisions. SculpSure treatments work for men and women of most body types, using a laser belt to apply specific wavelengths of light and heat to the targeted area. The laser gets hot enough to kill the fat cells under the skin without damaging the skin itself. 

The SculpSure device alternates between heating and cooling, and an entire treatment takes about 30 minutes. Your body flushes the destroyed fat cells naturally through the lymphatic system for up to 12 weeks after treatment. If you want increased results, the body contouring process can be repeated six weeks after your first treatment.

What is submental contouring?

Submental contouring targets the dreaded double chin that makes patients appear overweight or older. Past facial contouring treatment options were either surgical with extensive downtime, or ineffective with targeted exercises. SculpSure revolutionized the approach to submental contouring by creating an opportunity to use this laser treatment on the chin. 

WarmSculpting Submental with SculpSure uses a wand to concentrate the lasers on a smaller surface area. The procedure permanently destroys the fat under your chin, eliminating the cells instead of shrinking them through weight loss.

While results aren't immediate, patients see up to 24% reduction of fat cells in their treatment area within 12 weeks. Additionally, SculpSure utilizes a flat applicator, reducing the side effects seen from suction systems, including bruising, redness, and swelling.

If you want further treatments on your chin to achieve additional fat reduction, the team at Skin and Body Curvatures can treat the same area as soon as six weeks after the first procedure.

Patients can undergo WarmSculpting Submental or body contouring on their lunch break and return to work immediately with no telltale signs.
