Who Is a Good Candidate for Non-Invasive Body Sculpting?
We are sure that you have heard of the saying “a healthy body means a healthy mind.” Naturally, as medical professionals, we agree with the statement. While some people disagree and others don’t even think about it, we can all agree on at least one thing – every individual wants to look and feel their best.
However, sometimes we try our best with both working out and nutrition, but results aren’t satisfying enough. Some stubborn fat remains resistant to all our efforts. Luckily, there is no need to despair; with numerous advancements in the field of non-invasive medicine, our NYC SculpSure™ treatment allows everyone to finally have their dream body.
What Is Non-Invasive Body Sculpting?
SculpSure™, or non-invasive body sculpting, is a body contouring system that will help you get rid of stubborn fat in problematic areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or back. Procedures are only 25 minutes long, and there is no downtime whatsoever.
One session destroys up to 24% of treated fat cells. Our cosmetic dermatologists prefer SculpSure at The Dermatology & Laser Group to target and permanently destroy fat cells under your skin. Furthermore, we do it in an effective and safe way.
Who Is a Good Candidate for SculpSure?
There are so many people who could benefit from body sculpting procedures. SculpSure could help patients get rid of some annoying fatty areas in a matter of weeks. Before starting the treatments, you should determine if you are a good candidate for body sculpting.
Men and Women
Although there is a general misconception that women take advantage of non-invasive procedures more than men, that isn’t entirely true. SculpSure is perfect for both men and women, and both can benefit from it equally.
If you have some problem areas that don’t respond to exercise and diet, body sculpting will help you deal with the fat in those areas, regardless of your gender. SculpSure is perfect for stubborn fat located in your lower abdomen, back, and love handles.
People of All Skin Types
Patients who have a fair complexion or sensitive skin usually worry that the laser will damage their skin during medical procedures. However, when it comes to SculpSure, there is no need to worry. There have been no reports of skin damage; body sculpting is safe for people of all skin types.
Those with a Healthy Lifestyle
People who exercise regularly and have a healthy diet but can’t get rid of some areas with stubborn fat, such as the tummy fat or back fat, are really good candidates for SculpSure. Overall good health and a BMI of 30 or lower are characteristics of perfect candidates.
People Who are Close to Their Ideal Weight
Since body sculpting is primarily used for fat loss, and not weight loss, an ideal candidate would be a person who is close to their ideal weight. If you are within 10-20 pounds of your ideal weight, you might be a suitable candidate for SculpSure.
Imagine it like this; an ideal candidate is someone who wants to lose a notch or two on their belt. Such patient could benefit from one to three SculpSure treatments.
Those Looking for Convenient Solutions
Unlike surgical procedures, body sculpting is a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime. Patients can come in for a 25-minute long treatment and get back to their daily activities right away. So, SculpSure is perfect for those who want to achieve results without having to go through long and painful recovery.
Who Isn’t a Good Candidate?
Neither obese patients who are looking to lose weight nor patients with loose skin will benefit from body sculpting. SculpSure is for those who need slight improvement, not a drastic change in their look and lifestyle.
Also, since SculpSure damages fat cells under the skin with a laser, patients who have scars, infections or open sores in the problem areas might not be great candidates. Those who have had liposuction aren’t the best candidates either.
Fat Loss vs Weight Loss
To really understand the difference between a good and a bad candidate, we should first understand the difference between fat loss and weight loss.
Basically, we have a certain number of fat cells in our body throughout our life. When we undergo SculpSure treatments, our fat cells are destroyed for good (they decrease in number.)
However, when we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller while the number remains the same (the number doesn’t decrease.) That is why a healthy diet and regular exercise sometimes don’t give desired results.
To conclude, if you are healthy, active, and close to your ideal weight, but you still can’t reach your ultimate goal despite exercising and eating healthy – SculpSure might be a perfect solution for you.
Avoid painful surgeries and lengthy recovery; book a consultation with us and say goodbye to the annoying and stubborn fat areas once and for all. You will be amazed how much difference a few short sessions can make.
