– A non-invasive, body contouring treatment for effective fat reduction that may be utilized as an alternative or complement to surgery –
The 25 minute procedure uses light-based technology to permanently destroy up to 24% of treated fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles. SculpSure uses controlled hyperthermia to safely raise the temperature of the adipose tissue to a therapeutic range of 42-47 degrees Celsius. The 1060 nm wavelength has a specific affinity for adipose tissue, so it can effectively target the stubborn areas of fat without damaging surrounding tissues. For added patient comfort, the applicator system is designed with a contact cooling mechanism to minimize any potential discomfort that traditionally observed with heat-based treatments.
