Whether you’ve been on a long weight loss journey or you’re just trying to sim down a bit, you’ve probably noticed there are some places on your body that hold onto fat like a dog with a bone. No amount of exercise or diet seems to budge those annoying lumps and bulges that wreck your silhouette.
That’s because your body is much more complex than most simple weight loss formulas suggest. Since so many variables dictate where, why, and how you carry weight, including genetics, age, gender, lifestyle, nutrition, hormones, and activity level, getting rid of fat is one of life’s most difficult challenges.
But there’s a way to bypass many of those factors by eliminating the problem at the molecular level — that is, removing the fat cells from your body altogether. That’s what WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure® does. Dr. Charles Hunt, II at Alabama Vein & Restoration Medspa offers this groundbreaking technology to patients throughout the state, helping them achieve the smooth body contouring they can’t get on their own.
How WarmSculpting with SculpSure works
The number of fat cells in your body remains constant throughout your life, but they change size when you eat more calories than you burn. They either plump up to store fat or shrink down when you tap into that source for energy. And certain spots don’t give up their store easily.
WarmSculpting with SculpSure targets those stubborn fats cells by sending laser energy through your layers of skin and heating up the fat-hoarding cells enough to destroy them. Over the next few weeks and months, your body flushes the dead cells out of your body, and you never have to worry about them again.
This FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment is painless and quick and eliminates up to 24% of the fat cells in the treated area. But that doesn’t mean you’ll never gain weight again. You still have plenty of remaining fat cells that can plump up again if you stop managing your diet and exercise.
WarmSculpting with SculpSure treats these 5 key body parts
Although many have tried, there’s no such thing as spot reducing through diet and exercise. That means you can’t choose where your body will lose weight; your body decides for you, and it may decide to hold on to extra fat in certain places despite your efforts. That’s where WarmSculpting with SculpSure comes in, and here are the stubborn places it works.
1. Muffin tops
If belly fat is your chief complaint, WarmSculpting with SculpSure is your solution. While you lie on your back, we place the SculpSure applicators on your upper and lower abdomen. You feel a warming sensation as the energy penetrates your skin and seeks the fat cells deep in your tissues.
2. Love handles
There’s not much to love about love handles, those bags of fat on the sides of your torso. Also called your flanks, these not-so-lovely bulges ruin an otherwise lovely physique. But WarmSculpting with SculpSure zaps the fat cells in these spots and smooths the contours of your waist.
Appropriately named after the pouches hanging on either side of a horse’s saddle, fat that hangs on your outer thighs resembles those lumpy tote bags. WarmSculpting with SculpSure not only slims down your outer thighs, it also works on your inner thighs at the same time. We place four applicators to treat both legs at once, inside and out.
4. Back bulge
Men often struggle with getting rid of fat in their back, and women know it as the dreaded “bra fat.” It’s tough to target with exercise, but easy to banish with WarmSculpting with SculpSure.
5. Double chin
A quick scan of any gym makes it clear that there are no machines or routines that address your double chin. The pocket that forms under your jaw, called submental fat, typically runs in families and is almost impossible to reduce without surgery or WarmSculpting with SculpSure.
Fat loss vs. weight loss
WarmSculpting with SculpSure is not a weight loss program for people who are extremely overweight or obese. If this describes you, it’s best to embark on a medically sound plan to achieve a healthy weight first.
Once you lose all or most of your excess weight, WarmSculpting with SculpSure helps you finish the job by removing only the stubborn fat cells that are resistant to traditional weight loss methods.
