The specialists at Lasercare Skin Clinic in Little Rock, Arkansas can melt that stubborn fat and create a stunning new body contour.
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is the process of eliminating extra fat to achieve a patient's desired appearance. Body contouring can be done in 2 ways, surgical body contouring and non-invasive body contouring. Non-invasive body contouring is becoming the most attractive option because it allows patients to remove the pockets of fat that don't seem to respond to other measures like weight loss and exercise without a complicated surgery and lengthy recovery period. At Lasercare Skin Clinic, SculpSure is the system used for body contouring due to its high level of effectiveness and convenience for the patient.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a laser based body contouring system. SculpSure treatment liquefies fat in the treatment areas by destroying the fat cells. This treatment system was specifically designed to deal with stubborn fat pockets in areas like the abdomen and the flanks. SculpSure is done as an outpatient procedure and takes only 25 minutes per treatment area. This type of treatment is best for people who have a healthy body weight. SculpSure is ideal for individuals who have a few trouble spots that don't respond to diet and exercise, as this type of targeted fat removal can finally get rid of those fat deposits.
What happens during SculpSure treatment?
The 4 treatment paddles are affixed to the skin in the areas with the fat deposits. While the patient lays down, the laser light moves into the deeper layers of skin to access the buried fat cells. When the light enters the fat cells, they're quickly heated up. This results in irritation to the fat cells, which then release their contents. Over the next weeks and months, the body will naturally remove the liquid fat. The treatment isn't painful, although patients may experience a feeling of deep warmth. The heat of the laser is offset by blasts of cold air for patient comfort.
When will patients see results?
Results take time, but most patients see improvement 6 weeks after SculpSure treatment. By 12 weeks post treatment, most people can see the full effects of the fat removal. Most patients are very happy with their results after 12 weeks, but people who want even more contouring can opt for additional sessions if desired.
What is Venus Legacy™?
Venus Legacy uses multipolar radiofrequency and magnetic pulse therapy to minimize stubborn pockets of fat, water retention, and cellulite. It stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, leading to more firmness and elasticity in desired areas. It can be used to contour a variety of areas, including your arms, abdomen, buttocks, love handles, lower back, and thighs. The painless procedure brings significant results without the need for downtime.
