How Sculpsure Can Give You the Body You Want Without the Repercussions of Painful Surgery

Diet and exercise are good for your overall physical health and can make your body look leaner and healthier. Unfortunately, sometimes even the best diets and exercise routines can leave you with stubborn fat pockets that won’t go away. Dr. Sejour, at Solace Women’s Care, uses a non-surgical, state-of-the-art treatment—Sculpsure—to minimize the appearance of fat that lies just under the skin.

Here are the essentials you need to know about this treatment and how it can help you get the body you want without surgery.

Why is my skin lumpy?

Fat, also known as cellulite, commonly occurs on your thighs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen. Fat accumulates in between thick cords of connective tissue that holds your skin to the muscles underneath. As the fat cells increase in number, they push up on the surface while the connective cords pull down. This creates a dimpled or lumpy appearance that you probably don’t like.

Sculpsure overview

Sculpsure targets and destroys fat cells. A wand is rubbed over the stubborn fat pockets and energy penetrates the skin to heat up the fat. The heat energy damages the outside of the fat cells, breaking them down so your body can naturally flush the fat out through your lymphatic system. Your skin won’t be damaged during the treatment, and you can return to your normal activities right away.

What to expect during a Sculpsure treatment

When you come to our office for your procedure, you will be placed on a comfortable table, exposing the area of your skin that Dr. Sejour is treating. As the treatment starts, you will feel a cooling sensation on your skin. This sensation helps to keep you comfortable throughout the process. You will notice the laser cycling on and off during the treatment to raise the temperature of the fat cells and damage their structure.

You won’t feel pain during the treatment. You might notice a deep warmth or tingling feeling on and off throughout the process. The procedure takes about 25 minutes to complete, so you can plan on being in our office for around an hour.

When will I see results?

Sculpsure gives your body the boost it needs to remove excess fat from under your skin. Your body does the rest of the work naturally over the next twelve weeks. You should start to see results after about six weeks and notice optimal results at the end of 12 weeks.

How many treatments will I need?

Dr. Sejour will create a customized plan that fits your needs. Depending on the amount of fat and how your body reacts to the treatments, you might need two or three treatments to achieve the look you want. During your consultation, our care team will discuss your customized plan and what you can expect from your Sculpsure treatments.

Are you ready to get the body you’ve been wanting, without the painful recovery that comes with surgery? Get in touch with our office today by giving us a call to schedule your consultation with Dr. Sejour.
