Say Goodbye to Unwanted Fat with Non-Invasive Body Sculpting

Reaching your weight-loss goals is no minor feat. Yet, you might feel like your journey is incomplete because of the fat that stays on your body despite your efforts. Maybe it’s a double chin, or maybe you have a bit of extra fat on the abdomen or between your thighs. No matter your fat distribution, it’s normal to have a few areas that resist exercise and dieting. 

At our office in Missoula, Montana, Lisa Pacheco, DO, can tell you more about body sculpting. It’s a noninvasive treatment that removes the most steadfast pockets of body fat to contour your figure. Missoula Wellness and Med Spa offers body sculpting treatments using SculpSure®, an FDA-approved treatment system that uses a laser to target fat cells. 

How a laser can eliminate fat

Most people think of liposuction and other surgeries when it comes to fat removal procedures. Body sculpting lets you skip the surgery as well as the preparation, aftercare, healing time, and scarring. You also don’t need anesthesia for SculpSure. 

The energy from the laser heats targeted fat cells beneath your skin. It harmlessly passes through your skin to reach the fat cells and heats them to cause damage. The damaged fat cells can no longer maintain their volume and are later flushed out as waste in your lymphatic system. 

While the laser works using heat, the SculpSure system includes a built-in cooling system to ensure your comfort during the procedure. The whole process takes about 25 minutes per session and you can relax during that time. 

When to consider SculpSure

SculpSure may not be an immediate option for you if you still have weight to lose. With too much fat still on your body, the results of SculpSure are not very clear. This is because it isn’t a weight-loss treatment. SculpSure and similar body contouring procedures work best for small and stubborn areas of fat like your:

  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Chin and neck

People store extra fat in areas like these for a number of reasons, including hormones. It’s okay and even healthy to have a little fat on your body, but you might feel like particular areas make your body look disproportionate. 

Enjoy your results for years to come

SculpSure is a cosmetic procedure that alters the shape of your body by contouring it. With any cosmetic procedure, you may be wondering how long the results will last and whether or not they’re permanent. 

Most people are thrilled to hear of the potential for permanent results after SculpSure. However, to enjoy your results for the foreseeable future, you must maintain a healthy lifestyle. You should continue to strive for a healthy and balanced diet and get around 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity exercise.
