Body sculpting is a fat reduction technique that targets and destroys fat cells.
Throughout your life, you carry the same number of fat cells. As you lose or gain weight, your existing fat cells shrink or increase in size, but their overall number remains constant.
This fact has presented a hurdle to people who have done the hard work to lose weight, only to be left with spots where fat stubbornly hangs on. That's especially true for women, who are genetically engineered to carry more fat around their abdomen and thighs to protect their reproductive organs.
But medical researchers worked to find a way to permanently eliminate fat cells, thereby reducing fat deposits in areas that are hard to target through diet and exercise alone.
The first medical advance in this area was liposuction, a surgical technique that loosens and suctions out your fat cells. But this procedure is invasive and requires considerable downtime.
Medical researchers were able to adapt the technology to destroy fat cells beneath your skin without causing any damage to the surface area by using laser technology.
SculpSure® was the first company to be cleared by the FDA for body contouring in 2015. This innovative technology harnesses the power of laser energy to heat up and destroy fat cells below the surface of your skin without causing any damage to the other tissues in the treatment area.
During your treatment, Dr. Meisenberg directs the laser energy to the areas you want to have targeted, and your fat cells absorb the heat, which permanently compromises their structural integrity.
After your SculpSure® treatment, your body takes over the fat reduction process by flushing the dead fat cells out through your lymphatic system.
The FDA cleared SculpSure® for the following areas:
During your SculpSure® treatment, Dr. Meisenberg attaches the laser device to your body in the areas you want to target. You may feel a warming or tingling sensation, but most patients tolerate this very well.
Each treatment lasts only 25 minutes, and there’s no downtime afterward, meaning you can go back to your routine immediately after leaving Dr. Meisenberg’s office.
Your results aren't immediate since it takes time for your body to eliminate the destroyed fat cells. With most patients, a new contour begins to reveal itself after six weeks, with optimal results after three months.
It’s critical to note that SculpSure® isn’t a weight loss tool, but a fat reduction technique. If you’ve already done the work when it comes to weight loss, Dr. Meisenberg can provide the final touch on your efforts with SculpSure®.
