Areas of unwanted fat are a common concern for a lot of individuals. Whether it’s bulges of fat on the flanks, persistent stomach pocket after pregnancy or fat around the thighs that won’t go away; fat can be stubborn and hard to eliminate, regardless of how much dieting and exercising we do.
The good news is that Dr Saras & Co now have two innovative, non-invasive and permanent treatments that are safe and effective in removing stubborn fat cells.
SculpSure is an advanced non-invasive body contouring procedure that treats hard to reach areas of fat.
The procedure uses light-based technology to eliminate up to 24 percent of fat in treated areas. With SculpSure we can target problem areas in just 25 minutes with zero downtime.
This new state-of-the-art light-based device is used to heat unwanted fat cells while at the same time cooling the skin.
During treatment, up to four individual applicators are held against the skin with straps. Patients report feeling a warmth or deep heating sensation, which is not painful and causes minimal discomfort.
Energy levels can be adjusted as needed to help with any discomfort if the patient wishes. The Contact Cooling mechanism should also enhance the patient’s experience.
When the fat cells are destroyed, the body will naturally and slowly eliminate them over time, decreasing the amount of fat in the treated area. In the weeks after treatment, your body will naturally process and eliminate the targeted fat cells, leaving you with a more sculpted appearance.
Adults in good health who struggle with stubborn fat on their body are ideal candidates for SculpSure. Yet, it is important to remember that this procedure is not designed for weight loss; it is a body contouring treatment, which means it is a requirement to have a Body Mass Index of 30 or less. All of the candidacy requirements and risks will be discussed with a professional at Dr Saras & Co before treatment begins. This will give patients the opportunity to find out more information and discuss their goals.
CoolSculpting lets us sculpt different areas of your body, by focusing in on the stubborn fat. It uses cold energy to permanently destroy fat cells, without the need for surgery. This procedure can be used to treat fat on the abdomen, thighs, flanks and underneath the chin.
The machine works by pulling the fat bulge into the CoolSculpting device that has two cooling plates. During this time, the fat is held by a strong vacuum which creates a suction. The cooling plates are then activated to a specific temperature where fat cells are weakened and die. This procedure takes approximately one hour to complete per area. In some cases, more than one area can be treated at a time. When treatment is over the suction will stop, and the applicator will be taken off of your skin.
CoolSculpting allows our patients to go through a safe and quick procedure where unwanted fat is frozen and destroyed. To date, the results have been more than impressive which is why CoolSculpting has become one of the fastest fat reducing cosmetic procedures.
The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is someone that has excess fat that they want to get rid of and that does not seem to respond to diet and exercise. Also, this treatment is not designed to be a weight loss solution; it is a body contouring treatment.
