Whether you’ve worked to lose 25 pounds or 100, you know that losing weight can be a difficult task. Dedication to working out and choosing nutritious, balanced foods is necessary, not to mention motivation when you’re just not feeling it.

Even with proper dedication and motivation, you may not be entirely happy with your body after all your hard work. You may have pockets of fat that simply won’t go away, or you may wish your skin was a bit tighter in some areas.

SculpSure body sculpting is available for individuals in the Philadelphia area at Elkins Park Family Medicine and it may be the solution for which you’ve been searching. It’s a noninvasive procedure that helps destroy fat cells in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, back, and thighs. In other words, SculpSure targets the areas with which so many people struggle.

How SculpSure works

SculpSure uses laser technology. The energy from the laser penetrates your skin to target the fat cells below it. The heat from the laser damages the fat cells beyond repair, and your body disposes of them naturally through your lymphatic system.

The result is a slimmer, more toned appearance.

The fat cells are GONE

When you lose weight, the fat cells in your body shrink, but they don’t go away. When you have SculpSure treatments, the laser damages the fat cells to the point that your body can’t repair them and they are eliminated.

Although those fat cells are gone, if you gain weight, your existing fat cells can enlarge, so it’s important to maintain your diet and fitness routines following treatment. Results vary, but most people lose about 24% of the fat cells in the treated area.

It’s fast

Losing weight in a safe and sustainable way takes time, as you know well if you’ve been working to improve your fitness level. Most experts recommend that you lose between one and two pounds per week, so depending on how much weight you’ve lost, you’ve been patient as well as dedicated.

SculpSure treatments, on the other hand, take about 25 minutes each. In less than an hour, you can complete a treatment that will eliminate an area that has probably been annoying you throughout your weight loss journey.

Of course, you won’t see the results immediately, because it takes some time for your body to dispose of the damaged fat cells. You may be able to begin seeing a difference about six weeks after treatment, and you’ll probably see the full results around 12 weeks after the procedure.

No downtime required

In addition to the actual procedure being fast, your life isn’t disrupted following a SculpSure treatment. You can leave the Elkins Park Family Medicine office and resume your normal activities, even if that means going straight to the gym.

During the procedure, you’ll feel a cooling sensation, followed by heat, as the laser cycles on and off. Most people tolerate the treatment without any problems and report feeling a tingling or deep warmth during the heating parts of the cycle.

SculpSure can provide the perfect final touch to your weight loss by addressing those nearly-impossible-to-change areas. Book your appointment for a consultation online or by phone today to learn more.
