Based on the principle of Thermo-lypolysis (technical term for melting the fat) Sculpsure™ utilises controlled delivery of Laser energy to selectively heat up and destroy fat cells (adipose tissue) in the area treated by it.
The laser beam safely travels through the skin and targets just the fat cells underneath. It does not affect any other tissue surrounding the fat. Targeted heating of fat cells destroys their inner structure and melts them.
Following the selective exposure to Laser energy, the fat cells undergo a natural process of cell destruction. The body’s normal metabolic processes gradually excrete the dead fat cells safely from the body.
Sculpsure™ is FDA and TGA cleared based on its safety profile. Hundreds of thousands of treatments have been safely performed in the world over the past decade. There are no short term or long term side effects documented.
Most patients tolerate the treatment extremely well. Sculpsure™ is marketed as a painless procedure in the media. However, in our clinical experience, some patients do report feeling mild to moderate discomfort and warm tingling sensation earlier on during the procedure. This is of temporary nature and can easily be managed using inhalation anaesthesia (laughing gas) in majority of patients.
Sculpsure™can be used anywhere on the body but is typically used for targeting excess fat around the abdomen, love handles, back, stomach, thighs and arms.
Sculpsure™ is a lunch-time procedure. Meaning. It takes less than 30 minutes to treat one area. During the treatment, a series of non-invasive applicators are applied to the skin’s surface. These applicators deliver precisely controlled laser energy of a specific wavelength to selectively target and melt the fat cells in an area.
Once in position, the laser applicators remains on the skin for a period of approximately 25 minutes per treated area. During this time, you will be able sit or lie comfortably and read, work on your laptop, listen to your iPod or watch TV.
Immediately after the procedure the treated areas feels warm and may appear pinkish red in colour with some swelling. Some patients feel temporary discomfort along and warm tingling sensation. However, this is of temporary nature.
Following the procedure, most patients typically resume their normal routine and activities and are able to return to work and light exercise that same day.
Visible results are seen over a period of two to four months following the first treatment and may be enhanced with a subsequent follow up treatment if required. Most patients can expect to see a 20-35% loss of fat after a single session.
The number of sessions will vary from patient to patient. As each patient’s needs are different, the SculpSure™ treatment plan will vary. Other factors that will affect the personalized treatment plan also include their body’s response to the treatment and its natural waste elimination process. The body will naturally flush out the melted fat cells, and when or by how much will be different for each SculpSure patient.
Yes. Fat cells destroyed by this procedure are permanently removed from the body. However, new fat cells can form in the treated area if the patient fails to maintain a healthy lifestyle and starts to consume excessive calories and stops healthy levels of physical activity.
There is some soreness, but this does not prohibit patients from doing any normal daily activities or exercising. Though it is a laser treatment, because the laser is working on cells beneath the skin rather than on the surface, people with all different skin colors can use SculpSure. For majority of patients, Sculpsure™is associated with no downtime.
Light exercise is recommended as soon as the patient feels up for it.
Most patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their Sculpsure™ treatment. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after any fat reduction treatment to maintain long term results.
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will never return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.
Sculpsure™ is the ideal procedure for anyone wishing to get rid of excess body fat but not keen to undergo surgical liposuction surgery. If you have a stubborn fat, then you may be a good candidate for the treatment. To be considered suitable For undergoing any elective cosmetic procedure, you have to:
– Be Physically Fit and active
– Have a balanced and healthy diet
– Be of sound emotional/ mental health
– Have realistic expectations
Sculpsure™ is not a weight loss procedure and is not intended for use with grossly overweight patients. People unfit to undergo this Procedure are:
– Those with unrealistic expectations
– Those who are going though an emotional stress and trauma.
– Those we are unable or unwilling to follow a healthy lifestyle (exercise and diet) after the treatment.
This depends upon the body areas being treated and the number of applicators being used. Prices start from $300 per applicator (unless we are running a special promotion). To give you a rough idea; an average adult female may need 4 to 8 applicators to target the entire abdominal fat.
