Is Sculpsure Permanent?

As you read about SculpSure, you’ll learn:

  • How the treatment works to reduce body fat
  • Which parts of the body can be treated with SculpSure
  • How Sculpture can benefit your arms

Regardless of how much people diet and exercise, they still usually have pockets of pinchable fat that make them unhappy with their appearance. SculpSure is a non-invasive procedure that targets and breaks down fat cells for a slimmer appearance. SculpSure treatments can be used on various parts of the body, and each procedure lasts no longer than 25 minutes with no downtime, so you can easily fit it into your busy schedule. If you’re looking for arm skin rejuvenation, SculpSure can be a great option.

How Does SculpSure Work?

SculpSure is a hands-free laser that uses specific wavelengths to target fat cells and eliminate them. It can be used to tone up to four areas of the body in a single treatment, so it is an excellent option for eliminating pinchable fat on both sides of the body. While it is not a tool for weight loss, it is a good option to help you tighten and tone up areas of your body that are flabby. 

This treatment uses lasers made with a special technology that penetrates the outer layer of the dermis without burning it. Without this cooling technology, the laser could overheat your skin and would require more downtime after the procedure. Most patients feel little to no pain during the SculpSure process. They may feel a little heat from the laser, but the procedure is generally comfortable. Having SculpSure performed on specific areas of the body may be slightly more uncomfortable than others, but the procedure should never cause significant pain.

What are the Benefits of SculpSure?

Unlike some types of cosmetic procedures, SculpSure is non-invasive and has no recovery period. You can easily fit a 25-session into any schedule. Once you complete the procedure, you are free to resume your normal activities with no restrictions. There are few risks associated with the procedure because it is non-invasive. SculpSure is a great option for both men and women to help them get a slimmer appearance. A single treatment offers noticeable results, so you don’t have to wait to see a difference in how you look. If you aren’t quite satisfied with the results of a single treatment, you can have the procedure repeated up to three times until your expectations are met.

What Should You Consider Before Getting SculpSure?

Although SculpSure has many benefits, it is not right for everyone. It is a great tool for reducing the fat in problem areas of your body, but SculpSure is not intended for weight loss. It is most beneficial for people with a body mass index of under 30. However, if you’re looking for a way to tighten and tone your arms or love handles, SculpSure is an ideal solution for many people. You may want to speak to your primary care physician to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. Dr. Catherine Vanderloos will discuss your candidacy for SculpSure and let you know if this procedure can help you be more satisfied with your appearance.

It is important to remember that you may need more than one treatment to get the look you want. While you will see results quickly after getting the prodedure, your body may not be as contoured as you want. You can get an additional treatment to enhance your initial results. 

Does SculpSure Work On Arms?

SculpSure works on multiple areas of the body, including the arms. Many people are not satisfied with the appearance of their upper arms, as these areas are often flabby and can be difficult to tone through diet and exercise alone. If you want to give your upper arms more definition, schedule a quick SculpSure appointment any time during the week. The treatment typically causes minimal discomfort, with most patients only reporting a feeling of heat in the target area while SculpSure is happening. SculpSure on the upper arms is often more uncomfortable than when the treatment is performed on other areas of the body. This is likely because you have less fat on your arms than on other areas of your body. Without a lot of fat cells to absorb the heat from the laser, you will feel more discomfort during the procedure. An over-the-counter pain reliever should be strong enough to relieve any discomfort you feel after getting SculpSure done on your arms.

What Other Areas Does It Work?

The stomach is the most common area for people to get SculpSure, but the treatment also works on other areas of the body. In addition to helping you tone and contour your upper arms, SculpSure works well on the following areas of the body:

  • Love handles: The areas on either flank bother many people. Fat tends to go straight to the hips, but SculpSure can melt away the fat cells for a slimmer appearance. The main benefit of using this treatment to reduce the appearance of love handles is that ScupSure can be done on both sides of the body at once, so there is no need to get multiple treatments. 
  • Back: Many women notice fat that accumulates along the straps of their bras. This “bra-fat” makes the back look less defined and contoured. With SculpSure, you can remove the fatty tissue on your back to give it more definition.
  • Thigh: SculpSure can be used on both the inner and outer thigh to remove stubborn fat. When used on the inner thigh, the treatment can help reduce chafing by eliminating the fat that causes your thighs to rub together. SculpSure accentuates your glutes and can target the inner and outer thighs on both legs in a single treatment because it can target up to four problem areas at once. 
  • Abdomen: This is the most common area for SculpSure. The procedure targets stubborn fat cells above and below the belly button to improve your silhouette. 

You can have all of these areas treated if you are unhappy with the way they look currently. However, it is important to note that you can only treat four problem areas per appointment, so if you want to treat both sides of your body, you may need to undergo the procedure more than once. Remember that SculpSure targets fat rather than loose skin, so it is not an ideal option for patients who have recently lost a significant amount of weight. However, if you have pinchable fat that you want to get rid of, SculpSure is a great option for most common fatty areas on your body.
