How SculpSure Helps You Slim Down Without Surgery

Eventually, everyone struggles with their weight at some point in their lives. It’s the rare person who naturally stays skinny over the years and maintains that fast metabolism. If you’ve ever tried to slim down, you know it’s not just about the pounds. It’s also about certain sections of the body that seem to stubbornly hang onto fat despite your best efforts. As you no doubt know if you’ve tried to slim down, this can be a very frustrating process.

Most people are familiar with these “problem areas.” They are generally considered to be the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and flanks. Fat seems to stick in these spots and it’s quite difficult to get rid of it. If you are nodding your head in agreement, you are far from alone. Nearly everyone looking to lose weight wants to slim down in these exact spots.

If you’ve been diligently sticking to your diet and exercise plan, but you’re not seeing the drastic results you’d prefer when it comes to stubborn fat in problem areas, you might be a great candidate for SculpSure treatment. It’s a non-invasive procedure that can help you eliminate fat at the source for good. But, first, let’s explore why these problem areas are so common and why you shouldn’t give up on your diet and exercise even if you’re not seeing the significant results that you’re after.

Why do people store fat in the same areas?

Why is it that nearly all of us have problems with fat in the same spots? It can happen at any age, but many of us begin to experience what is known as the “middle aged spread” in our later 30s and into our 40s. That’s because these are the years when our bodies begin to go through pronounced changes involving hormones and metabolism. We’re genetically predisposed to store fat in these areas, so when the metabolism slows down, the extra weight tends to settle there. Once it does, it’s very difficult to burn off. While these areas do respond to diet and exercise, it’s much harder to slim down naturally. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try, though.

Why lifestyle changes are still important

For one thing, treatments like SculpSure are more effective if you’ve already lost a good deal of weight through diet and exercise. It is not a replacement for these very beneficial things. Secondly, if you are discouraged by your lack of results and deviate from your health routine, you run the risk of putting on more weight which would just be counterproductive. Lastly, sticking with your diet and working out regularly isn’t just about your weight. These practices are important to your overall health and will improve your quality of life. If you’re still struggling with certain areas of your body after all that, here’s how SculpSure can help you get over the finish line.

How SculpSure Works

To begin, it’s important to differentiate between fat loss and weight loss. Your weight isn’t just fat. It’s also fluid, bones, organs, etc. Fat loss is at the cellular level. That’s why even if you’re exercising hard, you can be holding onto that “little extra.”  While weight can fluctuate with the shrinking and expanding of fat cells, eliminating the fat cells is a more permanent solution. That is what SculpSure aims to do and it accomplishes this all without requiring invasive surgery.

SculpSure uses concentrated heat technology to destroy fat cells without needing to insert any tubes like with liposuction or dealing with painful freezing techniques that can lead to bruising. Controlled energy is directed on the area of your body being treated and shocks the fat cells beneath the surface of the skin. From there, your body’s natural processes take over. Recognizing that the fat cells are damaged, your lymphatic system will drain the fat cells over the weeks following your session. A single session can eliminate up to 25% of the fat cells in the targeted area. The typical SculpSure session lasts about 25 minutes. You won’t feel pain, but you may experience a hot or tingling sensation. You’ll start seeing results in about six weeks, with maximum results being seen around twelve weeks in. A minimum of two treatments is generally recommended for best results.


Making the lifestyle changes necessary in order to lose weight is difficult. If you put in all of that work, you expect to see the results you desire. Unfortunately, our bodies work in such a way that even with all of that hard work, you may not see the dramatic results that you’re after. SculpSure can help you get rid of that stubborn fat so you can have the body you want. Book an appointment online with us today to set up an appointment.
