Exercise and weight loss can improve your health and appearance, but sometimes layers of fat remain even after you've reached your goal weight. Luckily, it's easy to get rid of stubborn fat with laser body contouring treatments. San Antonio, TX, dermatologist Dr. Linda Banta provides a variety of cosmetic treatments designed to help you look your best.
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is used to remove fat and firm and reshape your body. Until recently, liposuction and CoolSculpting were the primary body contouring options. Although both are effective, skin sensation changes or infections can occur with liposuction, while nerve damage is a possibility if you choose CoolSculpting.
SculpSure, the newest contouring option, eliminates fat but doesn't cause any of the issues associated with other body contouring methods. SculpSure is an excellent choice if you want to eliminate fat in your abdomen, love handles, back or thighs.
How does SculpSure Work?
FDA-approved SculpSure uses heat generated by a laser to destroy fat cells under your skin without damaging your skin or cells surrounding the fat cells. Once fat cells are destroyed, they can't grow back. The cells destroyed by the laser are eliminated by your body's lymphatic system during the next three months. You'll probably begin to notice changes in as little as six weeks after SculpSure treatment, but won't see the full effects of treatment until 12 weeks.
What benefits does SculpSure offer?
SculpSure offers these advantages:
- A Non-Surgical Contouring Option: Unlike liposuction, no surgery or anesthesia is required for SculpSure treatments.
- Quick Treatments: Treatment only takes about 25 minutes.
- No Downtime: You can return to your normal activities as soon as you leave your San Antonio dermatologist's office.
- Increased Collagen Production: SculpSure increases production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that keep your skin young and firm.
