Body Contouring for Stubborn Areas of Fat Including the Submental Chin Area

The popularity of non-invasive body contouring procedures has been on the rise since the mid-2000s and the demand is expected to grow over 15% in the next few years. Stubborn pockets of fat around the waist and submental fat under the chin, commonly referred to as the double chin, are frequently resistant to both diet and exercise. This makes achieving your desired weight loss goals a challenge. However, with SculpSure treatments Dr. Melley can help give patients the results they desire without the risks of surgery, scarring or lengthy recovery time.

Both non-invasive and minimally-invasive body contouring techniques can be applied to many different areas of the body. Non-invasive body contouring can supplement your weight loss goals by minimizing love handles, slimming your lower abdomen and shrinking the submental fat under your chin with little to no down time. The versatility of SculpSure means that it can treat multiple areas of the body and can help many patients.

As the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis, SculpSure offers a quick and comfortable way to achieve a more sculpted body. SculpSure’s customizable applicators allow for treatment of the inner and outer thighs, waist, back, abdomen and under the chin for natural looking results.

SculpSure’s laser technology heats the fat cells to a temperature that damages the cell structure and causes them to be reabsorbed into the body while leaving the skin and other non-fat cells unharmed. SculpSure uses Contact Cooling technology to keep patients comfortable as they are being treated. Typically one area can be treated in less than 25 minutes, however, treatment times may vary on an individual basis. The majority of patients are able to see results after 12 weeks, but some see results in as little as 6 weeks.

While SculpSure does not replace a healthy diet and active lifestyle, it targets stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise alone.
