Here's why non-invasive body contouring is the latest beauty trend

Sep 13 2019, 10:28 pm

When people talk about medical procedures involving fat reduction, they’re usually referring to liposuction. Although liposuction has long been the most commonly used procedure, an increasing number of alternative options have recently emerged — specifically, several non-invasive procedures.

Obviously, there’s an appeal to being able to go through medical treatment without a trip to the operating room. As these options have increased in popularity, WarmSculpting with SculpSure body contouring has become one to watch.

WarmSculpting treatments with SculpSure can eliminate up to 24%1 of fat cells within a treated area. The light-based technology is non-invasive and the results are natural-looking.*

Cynosure, the makers of the SculpSure laser, describe it as the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive treatment of the abdomen, flanks (AKA love handles!), back, inner thighs, outer thighs, and under the chin.

Here’s how it actually works:

WarmSculpting with SculpSure body contouring uses laser energy to safely heat fat cells and cause controlled injury to them. The injured fat cells slowly die over a period of time, and your own body’s lymphatic system will clear the area, eliminating what’s left behind. Treated fat cells that are eliminated during treatment will not regenerate.

The treatment only takes 25 minutes. Patients have described the treatment process as a cooling sensation followed by deep warmth and tingling intermittently, which is generally well-tolerated2. You can resume your daily activities post-treatment, as there’s no recovery time required.
