For many people, the toughest part of weight loss is getting rid of the stubborn pockets of fat that seem to hang on regardless of diet and exercise. These areas of fat may come in the form of a double chin (submental fat), love handles, or excess fat on the inner or outer thighs and abdomen. Fortunately, Dr. Melley offers non-surgical fat reduction options at The Laser Institute of Pinehurst.
SculpSure is an FDA cleared, non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses specific laser energy wavelengths to target fat under the chin (submental), thighs, abdomen, and back in just 25 minutes per session. During the procedure, SculpSure heats the targeted fat cells to a temperature that damages the integrity of the cell walls without negatively affecting the skin’s surface.
Afterward, the body’s lymphatic system naturally eliminates the damaged fat cells which prevents them from returning. Treatments are easy and require no downtime. Patients can return to their daily routine immediately following treatment. While results may vary from patient to patient, a change can usually be seen in as little as six weeks with optimal results being seen after 12 weeks. As the body continues to process the unwanted fat cells, you will notice a more sculpted appearance.
Patients require 2- 3 treatments to achieve maximum results. Dr Melley and her staff will be able to help you determine how many treatments will be necessary to reach your aesthetic goals. The best candidates for SculpSure are individuals not looking for a replacement to diet and exercise and who are willing to still maintain an active lifestyle. Dr. Melley offers a customized weight loss program, including personalized medical counseling.
The caring staff at The Laser Institute of Pinehurst will monitor your progress and make necessary adjustments so that you can achieve your weight loss goals.
