This non-invasive laser system can tone and reshape your midsection.
You workout regularly and you eat healthy but it’s just not enough. You feel fooled by all those fitness articles and magazines telling you that all you have to do is eat healthy and workout and you’ll get the toned stomach you’ve been dreaming of. Many people get frustrated and give up on their goals when they find that nothing seems to work, but before you give up it might be time you talked to our Chevy Chase and Bethesda, MD dermatologists, Dr. Samantha Toerge and Dr. Alicia Braun, about SculpSure.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a laser system that is designed to help with body contouring for those who can’t get rid of stubborn belly fat. In just 25 minutes this system is able to target and kill fat cells. At the start of your procedure you will feel a cooling sensation. This helps to keep the skin from getting too warm throughout the treatment.
As the laser is directed at the stomach the laser energy is designed to heat up the fat cells without affecting the health of the skin. By increasing the temperature of fat cells we can effectively destroy them. During your treatment you may experience a slight warming or tingling feeling, but this is completely painless and non-invasive. Furthermore, there is no recovery period necessary when you get SculpSure.
Over the course of three months after your treatment, your body will naturally remove the destroyed fat cells from your system. Once this has happened the fat cells are permanently removed from your body and will not come back. Some patients see results in as little as six weeks, but most people will achieve their ideal results by around 12 weeks.
Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?
There are many people who have genetics, hormones or aging to blame for stubborn pockets of fat around the stomach and sides. If you are someone who has a healthy lifestyle but still can’t burn that fat then it might be time to consider getting SculpSure in Chevy Chase and Bethesda.
This is actually a great treatment option for men and women who have skin sagging due to extreme weight loss or childbirth, especially compared to other non-invasive treatments designed to destroy fat pockets. Since SculpSure uses a warming laser, we will also achieve some skin-tightening effects from this procedure.
If you are looking to finally lose inches off your stomach and sides and get closer to that hourglass figure, then it’s time you called Chevy Chase Dermatology Center in Chevy Chase and Bethesda, MD to find out if SculpSure is right for you.
