READING, Pa., Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Liposuction has consistently been the most performed cosmetic surgery procedure for many years, making it clear that excess fat is a big concern for many patients. In response, a number of new, less invasive options have arisen, offering patients non-surgical alternatives that require no downtime.
The board certified surgeons at Berks County Plastic Surgery vet all the latest treatments and technologies, and then select the very best options to ensure their patients receive maximum benefit safely. They are particularly pleased to announce the arrival of SculpSure® at their Reading plastic surgery practice.
SculpSure is a non-surgical, laser-based system recently approved by the FDA for non-invasive fat reduction—and it can reduce up to 24% of fat cells in a given area in one treatment, which takes less than half an hour. SculpSure uses controlled laser energy to safely heat targeted fat cells to an exact temperature that disrupts the fat cells, after which they are naturally metabolized by the body for permanent fat reduction. Additionally, this heat energy encourages production of collagen, which can have skin-firming benefits in the treatment areas.
Patients enjoy the fact that their body gradually eliminates the fat over the subsequent weeks, so the fact that they've had a procedure is not obvious to others. "We are thrilled to add this appealing fat reduction option to our menu of body contouring services," states Dr. Brian Reedy, Medical Director of Berks Plastic Surgery. "SculpSure is an excellent technology that allows us to treat multiple areas of the body in as little as 25 minutes, and patients begin seeing noticeable results as early as six weeks."
As the world's first FDA-cleared laser specifically designed for non-invasive fat reduction, SculpSure is a one of a kind treatment that offers safe, effective, and quick results without the need for surgery, needles, suction, or downtime.
"We're seeing non-surgical fat reduction treatments gaining more and more exposure as these technologies continue to improve," explains Dr. Scott C. Lindsay. "SculpSure is unique in that it offers similar results to other popular non-surgical options in much less time."
This state-of-the-art treatment is only being offered in a limited number of practices. "It's a brand new product that is receiving great reviews and feedback—and we're thrilled to be one of the first practices in our region currently providing our patients with this option," notes Dr. Reedy.
