SculpSure: The Secret To An Amazing Body

All the exercise in the world will not shrink loose abdominal skin. In many cases, such skin has lost its elasticity, has stretch marks and physically cannot snap back. Okay, the “Debbie Downer” moment is over. We are here to tell you that there is a solution and it’s called SculpSure!

This new light-based body contouring treatment uses laser-based technology to selectively target and destroy fat cells without affecting the skin’s surface, requiring no surgery or downtime.

When you at Art of SKIN and in 25 minutes, with no sedation and no needles, you’ll experience this procedure and then go right back to your normal routine. Easy, right?

With results that can be seen in as quickly as six weeks, it’s no wonder that this non-surgical fat-reduction procedure is increasing in popularity.

But how is it that easy? Here’s how:

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive melting of fat (lipolysis).  SculpSure uses a sapphire laser diode to create a wavelength (1064nm) that penetrates through the skin, without causing damage to the skin. This is infrared light is the same light that heats the earth’s air.  This specific wavelength passes through the skin layers (epidermis and dermis) and heats the fat in the same way infrared light passes into your car without damaging the glass while creating heat inside the car.  Once the fat hits about 112F (45C), it breaks down. The fat cells that are damaged during the treatment are cleared away by your lymphatic system, the same way your body heals itself from a cut or bruise, and are eliminated as waste over time.  Macrophages, a type of cell that responds to injury, reach the site at about 4 weeks and digests the dead fat cells. Between 12-24 weeks, fibroblasts arrive and lay down new collagen, which explains the skin tightening effect. So, unlike older generation treatments that shrunk fat cells, these fat cells are dead and gone permanently.

Is it safe?

This technology has been around since 1960 when the first visible light laser was created. Laser diodes are used in optical fiber Christmas trees, compact disc (CD) players, laser printers, remote-control devices, intrusion detection systems, etc.  The same laser technology is used to provide aesthetic services such as laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, photo facials, tattoo removal, and now SculpSure.

So, whether you’ve had a baby, lost weight, or want to complement your fitness routine –  we all have a reason to look and feel better about our body.
