SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A
Why is fat so stubborn?
If you’ve embarked on a weight-loss program, only to be met by stubborn pockets of fat that resist all of your targeted efforts, there’s an explanation for this. How you carry fat is largely dictated by biology (and some genetics) and how you burn fat is governed by the same.
Men and women carry fat differently—women are wired to accumulate fat around their reproductive organs, such as their:
Men, on the other hand, tend only to carry excess fat in their midsections.
When you lose weight, your body chooses where it sheds fat, and even the most targeted efforts produce little results.
How does WarmSculpting with SculpSure work?
The reason why WarmSculpting with SculpSure is so effective at body contouring is that Dr. Rodriguez can bypass your biology and your genes, and target stubborn fat directly.
During your WarmSculpting treatments, the SculpSure device delivers laser energy into your fat cells, which absorb the energy as heat. This heat effectively destroys your fat cells, after which your body flushes them out through your lymphatic system.
WarmSculpting treatments can destroy up to 24% of the fat cells in your target areas, and these cells don’t regenerate. However, this isn’t to say that your existing fat cells can’t still grow in size if you don’t stay on top of your great diet and exercise regimens.
And your WarmSculpting treatments with SculpSure are completely noninvasive, as the energy passes harmlessly through the surface of your skin to your fat cells below.
How many WarmSculpting treatments do I need?
The answer to this depends on your body contouring goals and the size and number of your treatment areas. In most cases, you benefit from a series of 3-5 treatments, which Dr. Rodrguez spaces apart by several weeks to allow time for your body to flush out the destroyed fat cells. Each treatment takes only 25 minutes, and there’s no downtime afterward.
When will I see results from my WarmSculpting treatments?
Your results will come online gradually as your body eliminates your damaged fat cells, and your skin resettles itself over your new contour. Typically in 6-12 weeks after your final WarmSculpting treatment is when you should observe your final results.
