Reach Your Body Goals with SculpSure® in Edmonton

Have you taken off a healthy amount of weight but still have stubborn areas of fat that seem to want to be permanently part of your body shape? At Cosmetic Medical Clinic and Vein Clinic, we have a treatment for you. We can contour areas that have failed to respond to diet and exercise, such as your abdomen, flanks, back, and inner and outer thighs. The world’s first FDA-approved laser treatment for body contouring, SculpSure® is available for Edmonton clients at Cosmetic Medical Clinic and Vein Clinic. 


SculpSure® is proven to reduce fat in a variety of focused areas safely and effectively, with no surgery or downtime. One targeted laser treatment takes only 25 minutes as it disrupts unwanted fat cells to eliminate them in a non-invasive way.


How SculpSure® Reduces Fat

SculpSure® allows for customizable treatment plans that follow your body sculpting goals and problem areas. Every patient is different, and our technician will be able to advise you about the treatment series for your best results. Each 25-minute treatment can destroy up to 24% of the targeted fat cells. The FDA has cleared the technology to reduce stubborn fat in not only the belly, love handles, back and thighs but also under the chin. 


Sometimes referred to as laser lipo, SculpSure® uses laser energy targeted on fat cells without affecting your skin’s surface, and the procedure uses cooling plates to keep your skin comfortable. The process begins with a treatment that gives you results over a matter of weeks. Here is an overview of the steps:

  • Laser energy heats fat cells to raise their temperature.
  • The structures of the fat cells are damaged, which destroys the cells.
  • Over 3 months, your lymphatic system processes and eliminates the damaged fat cells.
  • Within 6 to 12 weeks, your body flushes the treated fat cells, which cannot regenerate or return.


Why Choose SculpSure® over CoolSculpting®?

Though these two body sculpting methods have the same goal of making stubborn fat in problem areas go away forever, their approaches are total opposites. As the name implies, CoolSculpting® freezes fat cells to inactivate them while SculpSure® warms fat cells until they are not viable. So what are some detailed differences that you should consider? Here are the most important as to methods, comfort and results:


Treatment Methods

  • CoolSculpting®: Uses a suction device that draws and holds the fatty areas receiving treatment between 2 plates in order to freeze the fat cells. Only one area can be treated at a time. The treated area must be kneaded or firmly massaged before the patient can leave after each procedure. Patient can return to normal routine immediately. 
  • SculpSure®: Uses applicators placed on top of the skin where the laser energy will focus. These fit and cool the targeted areas while the laser works. Two areas may be done at the same time, and more fat cells may be targeted during the treatment. Once the procedure is done, the patient is ready to leave without any extra care. No downtime from the patient’s normal routine.


Comfort and Side Effects

  • CoolSculpting®: Because of the suction used, patients may feel pulling and tugging in the treatment area that subside after 7 minutes of cooling. Some patients may experience redness, mild swelling or bruising, and numbness.
  • SculpSure®: During treatment, the patient feels periods of warming followed by cooling. Some patients experience tingling and, less often, cramping in the targeted area. After treatment, these patients experience less redness and bruising, but some soreness or swelling is possible.


Treatment Time and Frequency

  • CoolSculpting®: One treatment sessions takes about 60 minutes, and need for follow-up treatments depend on individual results after 2 to 3 months.
  • SculpSure®: One treatment sessions takes about 25 minutes, and need for follow-up treatments depend on individual results after 6 to 12 weeks.


Results

  • CoolSculpting®: Good body contouring results for targeted problems areas since fat cells have been removed. Results will last if you maintain your weight and exercise.
  • SculpSure®: The same assessment applies to SculpSure® results except that patients who did gain weight later did not develop as much fat in the treated areas. Contoured areas appear more natural since heat radiates fat destruction beyond the treatment packs. Fewer possible side effects compared to other cool methods.
