Safely and Effectively Improve Your Body Contours with SculpSure™ By James E. Murphy, MD on June 22, 2016

Woman pinching fat on her thighsIf you watch weight loss programs or read fitness magazines, you might get the impression that anyone can achieve their ideal figure if they’re willing to put in some hard work. Unfortunately, this isn’t exactly true. While a healthy diet and active lifestyle are important to achieving and maintaining a slim and healthy physique, they don’t guarantee a perfect body. Almost everyone has isolated pockets of stubborn fat that simply don’t respond to even the strictest exercise routines. SculpSure™ is a body contouring procedure that gives patients the opportunity to naturally eliminate excess fat without any needles or surgery. This non-invasive treatment uses laser energy to safely and effectively reduce fat to improve body contours and help patients achieve their aesthetic goals. To find out if you are a good candidate for SculpSure™, contact our Reno, NV practice.

SculpSure™ Treatment

SculpSure™ is a revolutionary treatment that relies on heat, which is applied with a hyperthermic laser, to disrupt fat cells so they can be naturally broken down and eliminated from the body. During the procedure, the SculpSure™ device is passed over the treatment area, administering heat to the subcutaneous fat cells. At the same time, Contact Cooling™ technology ensures that the skin is not overheated or damaged, and that the patient remains comfortable throughout the procedure. This treatment is completely non-invasive and takes just about 25 minutes. Within six to 12 weeks after treatment, the body will begin to naturally eliminate the treated fat from the body. With just one treatment, the majority of patients are able to reduce the amount of fat in the treatment area by up to 25 percent.

SculpSure™ Candidates

Because of the non-invasive nature of treatment, SculpSure™ is a safe option for a number of our patients. SculpSure™ offers patients the chance to eliminate stubborn fat deposits and stimulate the production of collagen to improve body contours and enhance the appearance of the skin. Ideal candidates for this procedure are those who wish to slim down common problem areas without undergoing surgery or other invasive cosmetic treatments. Below are some of the areas of the body that can be successfully treated with the SculpSure™ device:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Flanks
  • Thighs

While SculpSure™ can reduce the percentage of fat in the treatment area, patients should have realistic expectations for the results of treatment. Most importantly, patients should realize that SculpSure™ is not a weight loss solution. To ensure the best results, SculpSure™ is typically not recommended to those patients who have a BMI (body mass index) that is higher than 30. As with all cosmetic procedures, the best way to determine whether SculpSure™ treatment is right for you is to consult Dr. Murphy regarding your aesthetic goals.
