Cynosure SculpSure works by using controlled laser lights. It is a non-surgical alternative to antiquated liposuction treatments. Liposuction requires long periods of downtime and poses potential health risks. Unlike any other laser fat reduction treatment on the market, the FDA has fully cleared SculpSure.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?
During the procedure, heat from a laser is used to increase the temperature of fat cells. This will eventually damage the cells to the point where your body will metabolize them.
A trained clinician will mark the sections of your body that are to be treated. You will then be fitted with a customized plastic applicator frame. The clinician will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area.
You will lie inside the applicator frame for the duration of the treatment. The laser applicators will be attached to the frame.
The treatment will begin, and you will feel a cooling sensation followed by a blast of heat from the lasers. You will feel blasts of cool throughout the process to keep you comfortable.
Most people only need 1 or 2 treatments, and it takes 6 to 12 weeks to see results. If you have a high body mass index, you may end up needing more treatments.
HOW MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
SculpSure has been shown to reduce belly fat by as much as 24%. Perhaps the best thing about the treatment is that you will not need follow-up procedures; the results are permanent.
Your skin will look tighter, and the procedure can give your body an overall more youthful appearance.
Sculpsure can also be used for the treatment of a double chin. The applicator frame will resemble a helmet, and the laser applicators will attach to the bottom of the frame underneath your chin. You will wear goggles to protect your eyes.
As with the treatment for body fat, you will have no downtime and can resume normal activities right away. You may have some minor swelling in the chin area that should go away very quickly.
BEFORE AND AFTER CARE
As with any cosmetic procedure, you will get the best results if you are in good shape to begin with and eat a healthy diet.
Sometimes nodules can form around the treatment area after the procedure. It is a good idea to massage the areas that have been treated a couple of times a day for about six weeks. You should also drink plenty of fluids.
Some people naturally have a double chin, and other people find that the shape of their face changes as they age and a double chin emerges over time.
In some cases, a double chin may be the result of weight gain. A double chin can throw off the symmetry of your face and make you feel self-conscious. The Kybella treatment can eliminate that double chin.
HOW IT WORKS
Gone are the days when you need expensive, time-consuming, and painful surgery to get rid of extra chin fat.
The fat that causes a double chin is called submental fat. Although it can be caused by weight gain, it may also be the result of loose or aging skin. If you try exercises to eliminate the extra fat and they do not work, Kybella can help.
Deoxycholic acid is naturally produced in our bodies and it helps your body break down fat from food in your intestines. Scientists have synthesized it for use in vaccines and even for cancer treatments. It is the active ingredient in Kybella.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT
When you have a Kybella injection, the nurse will numb your double chin area and inject the medication into the fatty area with a tiny needle. They will need to make several injections.
The treatment breaks down and destroys fat cells for good. The average treatment should only take about 20 minutes. Most people require 2 to 6 treatments that are one month apart.
WILL I HAVE ANY DOWNTIME?
You may have a bit of redness after your treatment and there may be a bit of swelling. Pain should be nominal and you will not have to take any time away from your normal activities.
