Getting the body of your dreams doesn’t mean you have to go through a painful, invasive plastic surgery procedure. With advancements in laser lipolysis, patients can treat fat with SculpSure® non-invasive body contouring system. As a trusted physician and women’s health specialist, Tristan E. Bickman, MD, can help you reach your goals. Find out if SculpSure is right for you by scheduling a consultation at Dr. Bickman’s state-of-the-art practice in Santa Monica, California. Call the office today or book an appointment using the online scheduler.
SculpSure treatments involve applying the system’s unique applicators to your treatment area, such as your flanks, inner thighs, or abdomen. During your session, SculpSure delivers a safe type of heatwave that penetrates the surface of your skin, targeting only underlying adipose (fat) tissue.
The laser treats up to 24% of targeted fat cell structures in a short 25-minute treatment. Over the following weeks, your body’s lymphatic system starts to flush away the broken-down fat cells. Because the flushing process is gradual, results are smooth, even, and natural-looking.
Not at all. While the advanced SculpSure system uses targeted heat wavelengths to lastingly treat fat cells, it won’t heat up your skin to the point of causing burns.
Most SculpSure patients report feeling a slight heating or tingling sensation. If you’re having the treatment performed on your abdomen, it’s possible to experience some minor cramping, which is generally well-tolerated, but not severe pain.
Each SculpSure patient is different when it comes to noticing results, although most women report having an improvement in the treatment area within the first 2-3 weeks.
After your SculpSure treatment, your system continues to flush out all of the targeted fat particles with each passing day. You should expect to see your optimal results in just 12 short weeks.
Possibly. During your SculpSure consultation, Dr. Bickman informs you on how many treatments you’re likely going to need. While you’re certainly going to love the ‘new you’ within a few weeks of your first treatment, you might choose to have another session in the same area to further tone and tighten that stubborn spot that makes you self-conscious.
Some women enjoy their results so much, they opt to have another area treated. Once you achieve your goals and get the body you want, you won’t have to worry about those fatty spots ever coming back, as long as you maintain your weight.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Bickman to find out if you’re an ideal candidate for lasting fat reduction with SculpSure. Call the office or book an appointment online today.
