Dad Bod Be Gone! Guys Love SculpSure Too

Sculpsure For GuysThere was a time when you would down pitchers of cheap beer and buckets of chicken wings watching a game with your buddies, and wake up feeling fresh as a daisy and feeling no guilt about all the empty calories you consumed the night before. Maybe there was even a time when you could do this several times a week without seeming to gain an ounce.

 

Now? Not so much. As life progresses, it’s normal for the inches around your waistline to increase along with your beer-binge recovery time – even if your intake has gone from pitchers to pints and buckets to bites. If you’ve found yourself struggling to accept having a dad bod, and you want to get rid of that spare tire, consider SculpSure.

SculpSure Is Perfect for Problem Areas

SculpSure is a non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction procedure that is changing the way men think about fat loss. It is fast – just 25 minutes per treatment with no downtime or visible evidence that you had any kind of procedure. You can do it on your lunch hour and get back to your life and enjoy the benefits of fat reduction discreetly and without having to miss work or come up with excuses for missing social gatherings.

How Does SculpSure Work?

SculpSure is a light-based treatment that targets and destroys fat cells. The SculpSure procedure works with light-based energy (lasers) that permanently destroy fat cells without damaging any other cells. Applicator panels the size of small smartphones are placed on the problem areas. A customized treatment pattern is selected to give you optimal results. Each applicator panel alternates between heating and cooling the skin in 30-second intervals for the duration of the 25-minute treatment. In the weeks that follow, your body will naturally eliminate the dead fat cells.

SculpSure Results Are Not Immediate

Over the next several weeks, your body removes the dead fat cells and eliminates them naturally. Results are not immediate, but they do become visible as early as a month after treatment. Full results can be seen eight to twelve weeks after the initial procedure. Learn more about the results you can expect from SculpSure.

Our clients are loving their results and you will, too. If you’d like to learn more about whether SculpSure is right for you, give us a call at (913) 541-3377 or contact us online.

What Are SculpSure Melting Months?

Sculpsure Vs Fat FreezingIf you’ve been thinking of doing something drastic to get rid of those last few lumps or those annoying love handles that seem to defy exercise, like maybe a tummy tuck or liposuction, here’s the good news – you don’t have to do anything that drastic! SculpSure is a non-invasive, in-office procedure that takes about 25 minutes. SculpSure is FDA-cleared, fast and painless, and boasts a 90% patient satisfaction rate, so you’ve got nothing to lose but those last few stubborn pockets of fat! Die fat cells…die!

SculpSure Results Are Not Instantaneous

So now that we’ve got all that out of the way, let’s talk about the results. While SculpSure offers a great alternative to invasive fat reduction procedures, it does take a few weeks to show full results. To help you keep your eye on the prize and get the most out of your SculpSure treatment, the Vein Clinic has put together a quick guide regarding your treatment and the weeks after as you wait for results.

What Is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a non-invasive laser treatment used to reduce fat in areas such as the abdomen and sides. A laser is used to heat and target fat cells, while encouraging the production of collagen and elastin to tighten the skin. Good candidates for this procedure are those who have fat pockets such as flab or a muffin top, who can wait a few weeks for results. The minimally painful procedure is done in about 25 minutes and requires no downtime afterwards.

How Sculpsure Works

Targeted laser energy heats fat cells under your skin without harming your skin’s surface. Raising the temperature of those stubborn fat cells damages their structural integrity. Over the next 12 weeks or so, your body’s lymphatic system will process and eliminate them from your body. That’s it — the fat cells are permanently removed and won’t regenerate.

SculpSure clinical trials have shown a 24% reduction in fat after a single treatment.

Your Melting Months

The important thing to know is that the effects of your SculpSure treatment won’t be instantaneous. Individual results of a single SculpSure treatment depend a lot on how fast your body gets rid of the dead fat cells. Metabolism of these cells is different for everyone. Typically, the results are visible 6 weeks after the initial treatment, however the final results may take up to 12 weeks to be visible.

Sculpsure Is Great for Guys

If that frat party beer belly from your college years is still hanging on no matter how keto you go, then it may be time to look into SculpSure. Many men are enjoying watching their spare tires finally deflate after a SculpSure treatment. Appointments are quick and there’s no downtime. You can even cruise to the gym right after and work on your deadlift.

The bottom line is that SculpSure is safe, fast, easy, virtually painless, and effective. In less than two months, you could be seeing a slimmer you – with no surgery.

What Makes SculpSure Different from Other Body Contouring Treatments?

sculpsure vs body contouring treatmentsThe FDA has approved several different laser treatment body contouring methods. Both are non-invasive. One uses cool temperatures to kill excess fat cells in specific areas. The other uses heat to kill the cells. At the Vein Clinic of Greater Kansas City, we offer SculpSure, the method that uses heat to kill the cells. We recently heard that SculpSure may have a few advantages over the fat freezing method.

SculpSure May Deliver More Natural-Looking Results


Recently, InStyle.com interviewed New York City-based cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Sejal Shah. She uses the SculpSure method in her clinic. She mentioned three possible advantages to using the heat method vs. the fat freezing method:

Smoother, More Natural Looking Results


Dr. Shah said of the SculpSure method, “It feathers the heat, so the results are more natural and there isn’t the risk of dents, dimpling, or sharp demarcations between what is treated and untreated.”

Possible Collagen Stimulation


Another potential benefit to heat vs. cold that Dr. Shah mentioned was, “Because it uses heat rather than cooling, it can potentially stimulate collagen and some individuals note improved skin texture and skin tightening, but keep in mind it is not a skin-tightening treatment and not FDA-cleared for these benefits.”

Customization to Specific Areas


Dr. Shah also notes that the applicators (1-4 depending on the size of the treatment area) allow more customization compared to some other treatments.

SculpSure Is Not a Weight-Loss Treatment

Dr. Shah reminded those interested in Sculpsure that it is not a weight-loss treatment. “An ideal candidate is someone who has localized, stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise. Ideally they should have a BMI under 30. They should also be generally healthy and live a healthy lifestyle including diet and exercise.”
