All too often diet and exercise fail to get rid of stubborn fat in areas like your inner thighs and abdomen. Expensive creams rarely meet expectations, since nothing can match the results of body contouring. Saratoga Family Medicine in Ballston Spa, New York, offers SculpSure®, a nonsurgical procedure that eliminates resistant fat. You can finally feel comfortable in your skin and have the body you’ve always dreamed of. Call the office to request an appointment or use the online booking tool so you can look and feel your best.
SculpSure is an FDA-cleared body contouring treatment that can help you achieve a slimmer look and better shape without surgery. The procedure targets fat cells in areas that are difficult to tone up with diet and exercise alone. Body contouring is ideal for patients who are tired of not getting the desired results but want to avoid undergoing invasive surgery.
There are various devices used for body contouring. SculpSure uses laser technology that directs heat energy to targeted areas. The heat penetrates and damages fat cells, leaving surrounding tissue unharmed, thanks to the precise laser technology. Once fat cells are destroyed, the lymphatic system eliminates them from the body as waste. Unlike weight loss, which shrinks the size of fat cells, body contouring gets rid of the fat cells for good.
Depending on your unique needs, your provider may use VelaShape® to smooth dimples caused by cellulite and improve the shape of the treated area. VelaShape uses a combination of vacuum technology, infrared light, and bipolar radiofrequency energy to reshape and smooth the treatment areas.
During the procedure, you’ll remain comfortably reclined. As the laser cycles on and off, a cooling pad keeps the surface of the skin at a comfortable temperature. Patients tolerate the procedure very well and rate the discomfort level as very low.
It’s a fairly quick process, with the machine running 25 minutes for each treatment area. You can expect to notice a difference in as little as six weeks. Optimal results may take up to 12 weeks.
Body contouring works on all skins types and can treat multiple body areas at a time. SculpSure is ideal for stubborn areas of fat, including the outer and inner thighs, stomach, chin, love handles, and back. It can also treat non-pinchable areas of fat and is effective for various body shapes.
Body contouring is not a weight loss procedure. Ideal candidates are at or near a healthy weight but have pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. The best candidates are within 30 pounds of their ideal body weight and have a BMI of 30 or less. Body contouring is right for you if you’re active and otherwise healthy.
