The extra bit of fat that hangs around the sides of your waistband, known as your love handles, inspires anything but love for your own physique. Love handles do develop because of excess fat on your body, but sometimes the conventional means of diet and exercise that causes your scale numbers to go down can’t even get them to shrink.
At Signature Skin Care, a revolutionary laser treatment called SculpSure® can help you slim down even those stubborn love handles — or other pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. Read on to learn how the technology works to eliminate fat for good.
The technology behind SculpSure
SculpSure uses laser energy to destroy fat cells that lie beneath the skin’s surface. The energy penetrates the outer layers of your skin without causing them any harm to heat the fat cells in your love handles. When they reach a high temperature, the integrity of the fat cells is compromised, and they eventually die off.
Your body then eliminates these fat cells through natural waste removal processes, specifically the lymphatic system.
Effectiveness of SculpSure
SculpSure can destroy up to 24% of fat cells in a treatment area after just one treatment. Most people get the greatest success after a series of treatments.
Your body needs time to process the fat cells and eliminate them from your system. Your results start to show up in as soon as six weeks, with optimal fat-loss appearing after 12 weeks.
Love handles aren’t the only treatment areas
SculpSure works anywhere you have excess pockets of fat that don’t respond well to diet and exercise. These areas include the thighs, love handles, abdomen, back, and arms.
The team of aesthetic specialists at Signature Skin Care can help you decide which areas of your body would benefit from SculpSure body contouring so you can achieve a physique you’re proud to show off.
Not for comprehensive weight loss
Although SculpSure is a near miracle for love handles and other problems areas, it isn’t designed for comprehensive weight loss. You benefit most from SculpSure when it’s performed as a complement to a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular physical activity.
The best candidates for SculpSure have a body mass index of 30 or lower. Body mass index, or BMI, is a calculation of a ratio of your height and weight. Online calculators are available, or the team at Signature Skin Care can help you determine yours.
The “melting” process
SculpSure sessions are quick and virtually pain-free. You feel tingling and warmth, but most people tolerate the sensations quite well. The whole process requires just about 25-30 minutes.
After a session, you can go right back about your daily activities, in fact you are encouraged to resume exercise right away to aid in the process.. SculpSure requires no downtime whatsoever. The only side effects may be slight redness and soreness in the treated areas.
