The new year is a time of promise, with most thinking about how to get healthier, break a bad habit, or adopt a good one. Whether it’s eating better, quitting smoking, or deciding to use sunscreen religiously — all great for your skin, by the way — you may also have your heart set on doing all you can to look your fittest and leanest this year.
Dr. Sharon Gertzman and our team at Serenity Medical Spa offer a diverse menu of advanced treatments that boost your looks and your confidence, and this post focuses on one we’re really excited about. It’s appropriate if you’ve overindulged a bit this holiday season and noticed weight gain in your “trouble spots.”
Most people have them — stubborn areas of fat that just won’t budge, despite smart eating, regular exercise, and even weight loss. Think muffin tops, tummy bulges, or out-of-proportion thighs.
We come in all shapes and sizes, but this doesn’t mean you have to settle for fatty pockets on your body that do a number on your self-esteem.
We’re fortunate to have a treatment now that alters the contours of your body for the better and removes unwanted fat safely, with astounding results.
Dr. Gertzman embraces SculpSureⓇ because it’s FDA-approved and offers many benefits to our patients struggling with the common problem of unwanted localized fat deposits.
SculpSure is a simple, comfortable, and quick treatment you receive in our office. It’s also completely noninvasive — there’s no surgery involved whatsoever, so you have no worries about anesthesia, incisions, post-surgical downtime, or risk of infection.
Dr. Gertzman places special handheld paddles on the areas you’d like treated, and you can read, listen to music, or even close your eyes and doze off during the treatment — it’s that easy!
When Dr. Gertzman begins treatment, you’ll feel a bit of warmth while your unwelcome fat cells are disrupted and eradicated. There’s no downtime, so after treatment, which usually lasts less than 30 minutes, you’re free to get back to your normal life, something our busy patients really appreciate.
SculpSure is ideal for eliminating fat in many areas of the body. It gets rid of:
SculpSure is even effective at treating submental fat that accumulates under your chin.
During your consultation with Dr. Gertzman, she discusses your goals, creates a customized SculpSure treatment plan for you, and addresses all your questions and concerns.
You start noticing the impressive results of your SculpSure session about six weeks post-treatment. At that time, you complete your second treatment. This keeps your body busy eliminating fat cells for another six weeks. Your results are complete about 12 weeks after your second treatment!.
Your body naturally eliminates the fat cells that SculpSure treatment zaps.
SculpSure destroys up to 24% of fat cells in treated areas — no wonder patients' satisfaction with the treatment hovers above 90%!
Some patients wonder how SculpSure compares to another body contouring treatment called CoolSculptingⓇ. SculpSure offers remarkable advantages, including destroying fat cells not just at your target areas, as CoolSculpting does, but around them, too. This makes for a smoother visual and textural transition when you look at and feel your treatment area after getting SculpSure, as compared with CoolSculpting.
While the CoolSculpting platform is equipped with two treatment paddles, SculpSure has four, enabling Dr. Gertzman to administer treatment with more precision in smaller areas. She can also treat a larger area than is possible with CoolSculpting, or two smaller areas simultaneously.
As for your skin, SculpSure bests CoolSculpting again. Fat cell destruction can cause some skin sagging, but CoolSculpting’s warmth is generated by laser energy. This stimulates your body to produce collagen and elastin in your treatment area, the two proteins that give your skin strength and elasticity. This helps the treated skin look tighter and smoother post-treatment.
Most importantly, Sculpsure does not carry the risk of nerve damage or tissue necrosis that comes with CoolSculpting
