Toronto SculpSure treatments are performed commonly on areas such as the lower tummy, abdomen, and flanks. Whenever a patient has unwanted fat or areas of convex distention, SculpSure can be used. In Canada, SculpSure is presently indicated only for flanks and abdomen, but full body approval (i.e. hips, inner thighs, outer thighs, or even the arms) is pending and expected very soon. Up to 4 laser applicators can be used at one time to treat an area, and the full treatment of that area will take no more than approximately 25 minutes. This allows multiple zones to be treated within just 1 hour. This is fantastic news, especially when compared to the leading competition, CoolSculpting, which can take 1 hour to target and treat just 1 fat zone. SculpSure also requires no anaesthetic, either topically or locally.
The SculpSure applicators release low-level laser energy into the target area, creating a thermal heating treatment directed at the fat and subcutaneous tissue. The laser is designed to vary the pulse durations of laser energy, and the fat cells are essentially melted and destroyed by the elevated temperatures. SculpSure is also designed with a unique skin-cooling system that helps maintain the skin at a comfortable temperature for the patient while the fat cells are being addressed. Through the patient’s own immune system, the dead fat cells are flushed away and the treated areas show up to a 24% reduction in excess fat (measuring thickness and circumference). Patients have reported that the entire SculpSure treatment is comfortable and very tolerable with only minor discomfort that lasts but a few seconds because of the system’s unique intervals of heating and cooling.
During the actual 25-minute treatment, patients are at rest and can catch up on the latest in social media posts or work emails from their cell phone. The SculpSure treatment is hands-free and so clients will actually be left to relax throughout the treatment. However, the SculpSure machine comes with a call button that allows you to conveniently contact your nurse or doctor should you need additional attention or assistance.
SculpSure treatments are recommended in sets of 1 to 3 sessions. Each fat-reduction session should be spaced approximately 6 weeks apart. The visible results of the non-surgical liposuction treatment are noticeable approximately a few weeks to a few months post-treatment. One can expect permanent fat reduction (assuming that the patient’s weight remains the same as it was at the time of treatment). The SculpSure body-contouring treatment actually leads to permanent fat cell death, but without the inflammation. Studies have shown that there is a 24% decrease in unwanted fat for each treated zone, and more than 90% of treated patients report that they are satisfied with the achieved results!
In addition, SculpSure treatments can encourage the production of collagen and elastin in a treated zone, so more youthful and healthy tissue is another wonderful outcome.
In our opinion, the answer is yes. SculpSure is better than CoolSculpting. SculpSure is a newer technology and has made scientific advances in order to offer more advantageous benefits over CoolSculpting. Both technologies are approved by Health Canada for their efficacy. However, some of the benefits that make SculpSure a top body-contouring choice include the following:
– SculpSure offers a faster treatment time of 25 minutes for 1 target area compared to 1 hour with CoolSculpting. With the lesser time commitment, SculpSure is a winner over CoolSculpting.
– Toronto SculpSure patients will find that they do not have the hypersensitivity (neurogenic pain) sometimes caused by CoolSculpting treatments. With CoolSculpting, the pain can last for many weeks. With SculpSure body contouring, there have been no reports of post-treatment discomfort, bruising, physical marks, or lingering pain. SculpSure patients may feel only slight tenderness in the treated area. However, they can return to their normal activities right away with no other downtime associated with the treatment.
– Studies have proven there are better results with Sculpsure, meaning that fat loss is more efficient.
– SculpSure on average is more affordable than CoolSculpting, so it saves you money!
– CoolSculpting requires that you have at least an inch of fat to “pinch” for it to work. With SculpSure, you can treat those areas with smaller amounts of fat even if there’s not enough to pinch!
Generally speaking, the cost of SculpSure is very reasonable and is relatable to the cost of CoolSculpting (although, many times SculpSure is even more cost-effective!). Patients pay per applicator, and up to 4 applicators can be used in a single 25-minute treatment. Often bundled and packaged discounts will be applied when multiple treatments and multiple applicator packs are purchased.
The most ideal candidates are individuals who have a healthy and active lifestyle, but have a problem area, such as the abdomen, hips, flank,s or thighs, where the effects of diet and exercise seem to have stagnated in the war on unwanted fat. With SculpSure, once those fat cells are eliminated, it is permanent! It is also important for the patient to maintain their current weight post-procedure to enjoy the SculpSure results.
Women who are pregnant should not try SculpSure until post-delivery. As well, it is not a suitable fat treatment for patients with specific medical diseases or medical conditions such as a pacemaker. Please speak with our professionals to learn more information if you are considering SculpSure!
