Have you ever noticed that articles with titles like “the only workout you’ll ever need to eliminate love handles” always begin by saying that spot reducing is a myth? In other words, the recommended exercises will certainly strengthen the muscles near your problem fat, but they won’t help you lose love handles.
The areas where your body stores fat — and your tendency to retain fat in specific areas despite diet and exercise — are determined by your genetics, hormones, age, and gender. You can diligently follow a diet, exercise faithfully, and even reach your healthy weight, and still be stuck with pockets of fat like love handles.
Here at BioAge Health, we understand how frustrating it is to work so hard and still not have the slim body you deserve. That’s why we offer SculpSure® to everyone in Eagan, Minnesota and the Twin Cities area. SculpSure is a noninvasive, gentle laser treatment that finally removes the nagging areas of fat you can’t lose with diet and exercise.
SculpSure safely eliminates your problem fat
SculpSure is a cutting-edge laser treatment that’s specifically designed to safely eliminate problem fat in your abdomen, love handles, back, and inner and outer thighs. You can also use SculpSure to say goodbye to a double chin, because it’s gentle enough to eliminate fat under your chin.
You may associate lasers with intense heat, so the first thing to know about SculpSure is that it doesn’t hurt you or harm your skin. You can feel the warmth, but the laser energy passes safely through your skin. Your treatment is also easy to tolerate because the SculpSure applicators have a built-in cooling system that keeps you comfortable.
One session with SculpSure only takes 25 minutes, so you’re finished in no time. You may have some short-lived redness, but you can get back to your normal activities as soon as your treatment is over.
SculpSure uses wavelength to precisely target fat
SculpSure is the first laser to use a specific wavelength, 1060 nanometers (nm), to produce a controlled reaction in fat tissue. The wavelength is vital because fat cells eagerly absorb the laser’s energy at this wavelength, yet it doesn’t affect the skin or other surrounding tissues. Another great advantage of this wavelength is that it penetrates to the depth needed to reach fat cells.
SculpSure permanently destroys fat cells
SculpSure works using a process called noninvasive hyperthermic fat-layer reduction, which means that laser energy travels safely through your skin and can effectively eliminate fat.
When the SculpSure laser is absorbed by fat, the tissues are heated just enough to affect the membrane surrounding every fat cell. The membrane damage is sub-lethal, so it doesn’t immediately liquify the fat cell, but it does cause enough damage to trigger natural cell death.
This concept is important because it means that SculpSure’s 1060 nm laser can destroy fat by slightly raising the temperature for a short time. As a result, the procedure is quite effective and also comfortable for you.
Over the next 6-12 weeks, the treated cells release the stored fat along with the cellular debris. Your body naturally clears away the waste, removing all evidence of the fat cells from your body and permanently eliminating the fat.
With one SculpSure session, you’ll lose about 24% of the targeted fat. Depending on the amount of fat in your problem area, that may be enough to produce the results you desire. However, many of our patients get two or three treatments to reach their desired body contour.
SculpSure is safe for all skin types
The wavelength of a laser determines its therapeutic effect. For example, some wavelengths are only absorbed by red pigments, so lasers operating at the right wavelength are great for eliminating spider veins.
The 1060 nm wavelength used by SculpSure isn’t absorbed by pigments in your skin. As a result, SculpSure is safe for every skin type and color.
SculpSure is versatile and customizable
The SculpSure system has four flat applicators that are placed directly against your skin. The great thing about the applicators is that they can be applied in a variety of configurations, so we can customize your treatment and eliminate multiple problem areas at one time.
For example, one applicator can be used alone, or any number may be used together. One can be placed on each side of your abdomen, while two are placed on your tummy. Or two applicators can be placed on each side to cover your love handle areas. SculpSure accommodates to your needs no matter which body area you want to target.
