SAN DIEGO, Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Thanks to new laser technology, a 25 minute treatment may be all many patients in San Diego need to reduce stubborn fat and enjoy a slimmer shape. La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre recently added SculpSure® by Cynosure, a non-invasive treatment FDA-cleared to reduce subcutaneous fat on the abdomen, to their selection of non-surgical treatments at their Laser & Skincare Clinic.
"Non-surgical fat reduction has become one of our most highly requested treatments, and we are excited to expand our range of options to include SculpSure," says board certified physician assistant and Director of Aesthetic Services Lauren Amico-Reed, PA-C, MMS, who worked with the five board certified plastic surgeons at LJCSC to bring SculpSure to the practice. "Not only does this new technology offer safe, effective fat reduction for all types of patients, but treatments are remarkably quick and comfortable."
SculpSure's FDA-cleared laser technology reduces fatty bulges by up to 24%
SculpSure uses specialized laser technology to heat subcutaneous fat cells in an area, causing a portion of these fat cells to die off. Treatment is temperature controlled to target fat cells while leaving skin, nerves and other surrounding tissues unharmed. The body gradually metabolizes the affected fat cells, helping to shrink fatty bulges by an average of 24%, according to clinical trials.
The SculpSure system includes four small applicators, which can be configured to fit various contours and target a patient's area of concern. Alternatively, the applicators can be separated to treat multiple smaller areas during one 25-minute treatment session. No downtime is needed after treatment, and results are evident as early as 6 weeks following treatment, with final results visible at 12 weeks.
Customizable, 'no-pinch' applicators allow for more comfortable, versatile treatment
Amico-Reed says that SculpSure's application design improves on previous fat reduction technologies, allowing her to successfully treat a wider range of patients. She explains: "CoolSculpting is very effective for many patients, but is best for 'pinchable' amounts of fat. SculpSure's smaller, flat applicators are applied directly to the treatment area with no pinching and can be spread out to treat different areas simultaneously, allowing us to reduce fat in large or small areas."
Amico-Reed also notes the enhanced comfort of SculpSure compared to other treatments. "The controlled heat technology eliminates many of the side effects associated with cryolipolysis [the cooling technology utilized by CoolSculpting], such as numbness or tingling post-treatment." The most common side effect with SculpSure, according to Amico-Reed, is temporary, localized soreness and mild swelling. She adds that "SculpSure can be an excellent CoolSculpting alternative for patients who may not have been good candidates for non-surgical fat reduction in the past."
SculpSure adds one more option to a suite of minimally invasive body contouring treatments available at the LJCSC Laser & Skincare Clinic, which also offers ThermiSmooth, Cellfina cellulite reduction and CoolSculpting. Amico-Reed states, "we have a huge range of options for anyone wishing to improve their body contours; we invite you to come in and see which options are best for you."
