SculpSure Non-surgical Body Contouring
Do you diet and exercise and still have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose?
SculpSure non-surgical body contouring technology at Atlantis Medical Wellness Center is able to target and destroy these fat cells without affecting the skin’s surface, without surgery or downtime.
That’s right! SculpSure’s non-surgical 25-minute procedure uses light-based technology to permanently destroy up to 24%1 of treated fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles. Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks.
Atlantis Medical Wellness Center is proud to be the first to offer the SculpSure Non-surgical Body Contouring treatment in the Silver Spring area!
Is SculpSure right for you?
SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.
How many treatments will I need?
Every patient is different. At Atlantis, we will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to meet your desired goals. Call us at (301) 622-2722 to schedule a consultation and discuss what treatment plan is best for you.
What should I expect during the treatment?
Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.2
How long will results last?
Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.
When will I see results?
Patients may start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.
How long before I can resume normal activities?
There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.
What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will not return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.
