Getting rid of those excess pounds the natural way, while fulfilling, can prove a lengthy and difficult process. Typically, it takes longer to lose weight than it does to lose it, causing many people to give up on their quest. This can result in low self-esteem and a general lack of confidence.

Fortunately, a new treatment, SculpSure in Chicago, has been making headlines recently for melting fat cells away using laser technology. And it is quick; in the vast majority of cases, the outpatient procedure takes about 25 minutes – leading some media outlets to dub it the “lunch time solution.”

The Breakdown

SculpSure applies wavelengths and heat via a hands-free heat laser belt to the upper abdominal area, lower abdominal area or flanks to create a slimmer appearance. The laser dispenses enough heat to kill fat cells without harming other tissue. It is noninvasive and does require an overnight stay.

It is important to note that this treatment was not designed to generate weight loss and is best suited for a body mass index of 30 or less. It is not the best fit for those who are obese.

The Cost

The cost of SculpSure can vary due to several different factors including the number of applicators used. You may need between one to four applicators depending on the area of your body that is receiving the treatment. If cost is a concern, an incentive or payment plan may be available to you through your local provider.

The Procedure

You will remain awake during the procedure, seated in a reclined position. It is the SculpSure device, wrapped around your body much like a belt, that administers the laser. A cooling effect alternates with the heat of the laser to keep you comfortable.

Following the treatment, your body’s lymphatic system will go through a natural process of flushing out the targeted fat cells. You may see results as soon as six weeks following each treatment, with full results evident after about 12 weeks. On average, one session reduces fat by about 24 percent. One of the major benefits is that the treated cells will not regenerate because the laser destroys them. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to maintain fat reduction.

So, is SculpSure in Chicago for you? The above synopsis is a general summary. For a more individualized answer, it is best to contact your local provider for a consultation.
