A nutritious diet and regular exercise can give you a lean, strong body, but a healthy lifestyle won’t always help you shed those stubborn pockets of fat around your midsection. At Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center in South Philadelphia and Voorhees, New Jersey, Richard J. Dittrich, DO, FACOG, offers 25-minute SculpSure® treatments, so patients can reduce persistent love handles and belly fat to achieve a naturally slimmer appearance without surgery.
SculpSure by CynoSure® is an FDA-approved, noninvasive body sculpting treatment that reduces excess midsection fat, including love handles, so-called muffin tops, and lower belly fat. The safe, advanced technology uses precision-directed laser energy to superheat the fat cells beneath the surface of your skin, without affecting your skin tissue in any way.
Once it penetrates your fat cells, the laser’s heat damages the cells’ integrity and interferes with their ability to function. Over the course of a few weeks, your lymphatic system targets the damaged fat cells as waste and naturally flushes them from your body. As a result, you’ll achieve a tighter, slimmer midsection without diet and exercise.*
As a body-contouring system designed to eliminate stubborn pockets of excess fat, SculpSure isn’t intended to help you lose weight. Although the number on the scale may drop as your body flushes the targeted fat cells from your system, the main goal of SculpSure is to help you achieve your desired shape throughout your waist, hips, and belly. If you’re already at a healthy body weight, but wish you could still slim down a bit through your midsection, SculpSure body sculpting may be just the solution you’re looking for.
After an initial consultation and assessment to discuss your aesthetic goals, Dr. Dittrich will develop a customized treatment plan. Most patients can achieve their desired results by treating several areas over the course of multiple sessions. Each session lasts about 25 minutes, so it’s easy to fit it into your day.
As the laser permeates your fat cells during the procedure, you may experience a mild tingling sensation, which generally isn’t bothersome. Because SculpSure is a noninvasive, nonsurgical fat-reduction treatment, it doesn’t require any recovery time and you can get back to your routine immediately following the procedure.
Traditional diet and weight loss simply cause some of your fat cells to shrink, but they’re still there and can grow larger again in the future. But with SculpSure, the fat cells targeted by the treatment are permanently destroyed and eliminated from your body.
Because SculpSure body sculpting flushes away the targeted fat cells over time, you’ll see significant results about six weeks after treatment, and optimal results up to 12 weeks after treatment. SculpSure eliminates up to 24% of the fat cells in treated areas.
Individual results may vary.
