Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting, also called body contouring, refers to cosmetic procedures designed to reduce areas of stubborn fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. The most recent techniques use noninvasive laser or radiofrequency technology to reshape and slim your body.

Body sculpting involves fat loss, not weight loss. Weight loss occurs when you shrink the size of the fat cells; fat loss reduces the number of cells. When you’re left with stubborn cells that won’t shrink, body sculpting can permanently destroy them.

How does body sculpting work?

Dr. Boone uses the SculpSure body contouring system, utilizing state-of-the-art laser technology. Without affecting the skin’s surface, the laser delivers targeted light energy, which heats and destroys stubborn fat cells underneath your skin.

Over the next few months, your body naturally processes and eliminates the dead cells.

What areas of the body can SculpSure treat?

During each 25-minute session, Dr. Boone can use SculpSure to eliminate fat in the following areas:

  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Under the chin

Dr. Boone arranges four separate applicators on the areas where you need treatment.

What can you expect from a body sculpting treatment?

To achieve the best outcome, Dr. Boone customizes your body sculpting plan to meet your unique needs. Body sculpting with SculpSure may involve a series of treatments.

During each treatment, you’ll experience intermittent sensations of warmth and tingling, but SculpSure’s continuous cooling device helps you stay comfortable throughout the session. It requires no anesthesia or pain medication.

Unlike surgery, SculpSure treatment requires no downtime; you can return to your normal activities right away. Dr. Boone may suggest massaging the treated areas for a few minutes each day to speed up the elimination process.

You might see effects as soon as six weeks after treatment; at 12 weeks, you’ll experience optimal results. A flatter stomach, toned thighs, better-fitting clothes — whatever your body contouring goals, SculpSure can help you achieve them.

Dr. Boone wants to ensure your overall health and well-being, and improving your appearance can be a part of your healthcare plan. Boost your confidence with SculpSure body sculpting. Call The Medical Place Family Practice or book an appointment online today.
