Regular exercise and a nutritious diet can go a long way in helping you achieve and maintain a strong, healthy body. But even after you’ve reached your ideal weight, you may still find yourself dealing with trouble spots, such as those small, stubborn pockets of fat around your midsection that seem so hard to lose. Esthetica Maui Laser Clinic and Medspa in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii offers SculpSure®, a non-surgical body contouring treatment that can help reduce even the most persistent love handles and belly fat.

SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A

How does it work?

SculpSure is the first FDA-approved non-surgical body contouring treatment specifically aimed at reducing love handles and abdominal fat. This state-of-the-art technology uses targeted laser energy to heat fat cells beneath the surface of your skin, without affecting the skin itself. The heat disrupts the fat cells and damages their integrity. Over time, your body’s lymphatic system processes and eliminates the damaged fat cells. You can expect to start seeing results 6 weeks after treatment, but you may have to wait up to 12 weeks to see optimal results.

Is body contouring right for me?

If you’ve already achieved what you can through diet and exercise, but you’d still like to slim down through your waist, hips, or belly, Dr. Ruidas will assess your areas of concern to see if SculpSure body contouring may be right for you. Unlike standard weight loss methods, SculpSure targets a specific area, leading to just the result you’re looking for. It has another major advantage, too. The fat cells that SculpSure destroys are permanently eliminated and can never be regenerated. With traditional weight loss, your fat cells shrink, but they don’t decrease in number. SculpSure body contouring can reduce fat by up to 24% in treated areas.

What is the treatment Like?

After discussing your desired outcome, Dr. Ruidas will design a treatment plan for your specific needs. Most patients can achieve the results they’re looking for by treating several areas through multiple sessions, with each session lasting about 25 minutes. Although the procedure itself is non-invasive, you may feel a slight, intermittent tingling sensation as the heat targets your fat cells. Most patients say they feel no discomfort throughout the procedure. You don’t have to allow for recovery time after your SculpSure treatment, which means that you can schedule a session during your lunch hour, and go right back to work when you’re done.
