Non-Invasive Body Contouring with SculpSure
Many patients struggle with stubborn fat that they cannot get rid of, despite their best efforts. SculpSure® is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that allows you to target trouble areas in your abdomen and flanks. During short, convenient treatments, specialized heat is directed toward selected areas to dislodge fat cells, which are then naturally removed by the body for lasting results. Centre Chirurgical De La Capitale in Gatineau, QC, provides comprehensive cosmetic surgery services to help patients look and feel their best. Dr. Patricia Berbari and our nurses have extensively studied cosmetic surgery and are able to provide body contouring procedures that are tailored to the needs of our patients with consistently exceptional results.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a non-invasive laser body contouring lipolysis device that has been cleared by the FDA to treat excess fat deposits. A SculpSure procedure uses powerful laser energy that is directed to your trouble areas in the abdomen and flanks. This energy will heat the fat, or adipose tissue, causing it to become damaged and break apart. During the following months, you body will naturally remove these cells. This system uses four applicators through which the energy can travel, while the applicators keep the skin cool. You can undergo comfortable treatment and achieve lasting results without the need for surgery or recovery time.
What to Expect During Treatment
To ensure that SculpSure is the right treatment for you, you will undergo a consultation with Dr. Berbari. During your consultation, you will discuss your goals, medical history, and any questions or concerns you may have. Based on your discussion and her evaluation, the doctor will help you determine if this or another body contouring procedure is the best solution. When you come into our office for your procedure, you will be able to relax. A member of our team place the laser applicators into special a frame that holds them in a targeted formation. These procedures will typically be completed with four applicators.
For 25 minutes, the light-based technology system will apply both cooling and heat. Cooling is administered to the skin throughout the entire treatment to ensure that there is no damage and it does not get too hot for comfort. The lasers will penetrate deep into the tissue, through the skin to heat the fat underneath. A deep warmth or tingling sensation can be expected periodically throughout the course of your procedure. Most patients require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results. Once complete, you will be able to leave and go about your day without any downtime or recovery.
The entire staff at Centre Chirurgical De La Capitale is dedicated to helping our patients achieve their goals through advanced treatments that are effective and efficient.
You can typically see results within six weeks to three months following treatment. During this time, the affected fat cells will be processed and eliminated from the body. Any fat cells destroyed during your treatment will not regenerate. Depending on your goals, you may choose to undergo more than one procedure to terminate more fat cells. Some patients who are seeking less extensive results can achieve their goals after a single treatment. However, for more dramatic results, you can undergo multiple treatments. Dr. Berbari can help you develop an effective treatment plan.
