Sometimes, no matter how hard you try with diet and exercise, you can’t get rid of stubborn pockets of fat around your middle. Sarah Newton, MD, and Leslie Zak, MD, at Red Rock OB/GYN in Las Vegas, explain why these areas of fat resist your efforts and show you how to get rid of them for good using the SculpSure® body-contouring system. SculpSure is a safe, noninvasive laser technology that melts away fat without you needing to have surgery. To find out more, call Red Rock OB/GYN today or book an appointment online.
Many otherwise fit and healthy people find they have problems with areas of fat that don’t diminish despite their best efforts. Fat pads tend to form on areas such as:
These hard-to-shift areas of fat are resistant to diet and exercise because the chemical receptors in the cells don’t release fat as efficiently as cells in other parts of your body. Therefore, even if you watch your diet and exercise regularly, you can still be left with fatty deposits in certain areas.
A healthy, portion-controlled diet and regular exercise are always the healthiest options when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off. However, if you’re stuck with these fat pads, there is a new laser technology at Red Rock OB/GYN called SculpSure® that reduces stubborn fat pockets.
SculpSure uses laser technology to direct heat at the fat cells in these stubborn pockets of fat and destroy them. The laser targets only fat cells, leaving all the other tissues unharmed. Once they’re dead, the fat cells can’t regrow.
SculpSure is a noninvasive treatment, which means there’s no incisions or injections, and there’s no need for anesthesia or medication. You simply lay on a comfortable treatment table and your doctor applies the laser to your skin in the target areas.
The procedure takes around 25 minutes, and you can have up to four treatments during a single session. You won’t feel any pain. The SculpSure applicator cools your skin, so the procedure is far more comfortable than a surgical option such as liposuction.
After your treatment session, you can carry on with your day as normal. You won’t see the full effect right away, as your body must break down and dispose of the dead fat cells. From around six weeks after treatment, you should start to see the fatty areas reducing. Most patients see the final results about three months after treatment.
If you’re stuck with areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, SculpSure helps contour your body and give you a more slender figure. Call Red Rock OB/GYN today to find out more or book an appointment online.
