Top 5 Myths and Misconception About SculpSure, Debunked

Posted by December 3rd, 2019 in News

With recent innovations in cosmetic procedures, a number of treatments are now available that anyone can avail of. Most notable among these is SculpSure, a laser-assisted body contouring treatment targeting hard-to-eliminate fat cells in the patient’s midsection, flanks, back, thighs, and under the chin.

As a unique and relatively new procedure, SculpSure is often the subject of many misconceptions. In today’s article, we debunk the 5 most common of these myths.

1. SculpSure body contouring is painful

Unlike traditional cosmetic surgeries such as liposuction, SculpSure is non-invasive, so you won’t have to worry about needles or knives piercing your flesh. As such, it’s a minimally painless process. Some patients do experience warming, cooling, or tingling sensations, but these are mild and tolerable—not to mention the process only takes around half an hour. You also won’t suffer any discomfort after your SculpSure fat-melting session.

2. The recovery period is long

Contrary to what some believe, SculpSure body contouring treatment doesn’t have a long recovery period. In fact, after your session is over, you can immediately return to your customary activities, including exercise and work. In extremely rare cases, side effects do occur, but these are usually too mild and transient to disrupt your daily routines.

3. SculpSure is a risky procedure

During the SculpSure fat melting procedure, the laser penetrates the skin, heating fat cells underneath until they are destroyed. While this might sound scary, the treatment uses cooling plates to keep your skin cool, comfortable, and safe from harm. What’s more, SculpSure has already been thoroughly tested for safety and is the first and only non-surgical, laser-enabled permanent fat-reducing procedure approved by FDA.

4. SculpSure is a weight loss procedure

Contrary to common misconceptions, SculpSure body contouring is not a form of weight loss. While it permanently eliminates fat that can’t be removed by exercise or a healthy diet, it’s not the magic cure for obesity. You also have to maintain a healthy lifestyle to maintain optimal results; people who have been found to gain weight post-treatment tend to grow fast in areas that were not subjected to the procedure.

5. Traditional liposuction is the only body contouring treatment that works

This notion is inaccurate. These days, many-body contouring options are available; the SculpSure fat melting treatment just so happens to be one of the best choices for fat reduction. With it, your body will continue removing damaged fat cells until a slimmer, sexier you are revealed around 6 weeks after your session. Optimal results are then achieved in 12 weeks.
