Getting to your ideal body shape can be a frustrating road as you negotiate hurdle after hurdle, only to be left with stubborn pockets of fat as you near the finish line. To help you declare victory, SculpSure® can close the final gap to your body-shape goal through noninvasive body sculpting.
Here at Epitome Medical Aesthetics, we offer the latest technology and science to help our patients in Virginia Beach, Virginia, realize their cosmetic dreams. When it comes to getting rid of fat, traditional techniques required invasive surgery and liposuction. Now we can target hard-to-tackle fat deposits with laser technology.
Here’s a look at the science behind melting away stubborn fat with SculpSure.
You’ve done everything by the book in your weight-loss program—you’ve cut out the extra calories and ramped up your exercise regimen—and it’s worked. To a point. While the scale is going in the right direction, your body shape doesn’t seem to be following your plan. That’s because there are larger forces at play, namely biology.
When you lose weight, you have little to no control over where your body sheds the pounds. This aspect of weight loss is largely dictated by your biological and genetic directives.
For example, if you’re a woman, you’re programmed to hold onto weight around your pelvis to safeguard your reproductive organs. This means your hips, thighs, buttocks, flanks, and abdomen can be tough to tackle. Men, on the other hand, are wired to collect extra fat around their midsections only.
And these directives are almost impossible to work around, no matter how many products or services make claims to the contrary. There is one product, however, that can bypass your body’s orders and target and destroy fat in particularly stubborn areas.
With SculpSure, we’re able to choose where we want to reduce fat, helping you contour your body to meet your goals.
Gone for good
When it comes to the science of fat, there’s another fact that makes SculpSure a great choice. Throughout your life, you carry, more or less, the same number of fat cells in your body. When you put on or lose weight, the fat cells you already have grow or shrink in size, but not in number.
With SculpSure, we can destroy up to 24% of the existing fat cells in your target areas, and they don’t regenerate.
While many products claim to “melt away” fat, SculpSure accomplishes exactly that. Using FDA-cleared technology, we send laser energy into your tissue without harming the surface area. In turn, your fat cells absorb the energy as heat. This heat destroys these cells, after which your body flushes them out naturally through your lymphatic system.
Since it’s noninvasive, we can use SculpSure most anywhere on your body, including your:
- Love handles
- Under your chin
In fact, we can use SculpSure in smaller, problematic areas, such as your upper arms or above your knees.
If you give us 25 minutes, we can help you put the finishing touches on your weight loss program by melting away stubborn pockets of fat. Please give us a call to get started or use our online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
