SculpSure Edmonton is the latest non-invasive permanent fat reduction technology and one of the most effective of the non-surgical liposuction devices. Dr. Poon is at the leading edge of non-surgical liposuction techniques in Edmonton.
SculpSure is a non-surgical liposuction device and treatment. It is performed as an outpatient treatment and requires no topical or local anesthesia. The SculpSure works by the application of multiple, adjustable laser applicators over the area of convex distention or unwanted fat. Up to four applicators can be applied, side by side in an area, or areas of unwanted fat. Common treatment areas for Edmonton SculpSure patients include areas such as the lower tummy, hips, outer thighs, inner thighs, arms or inner knees.
Once applied, these SculpSure applicators then emit painless low-level 1060nm laser energy, providing a thermal treatment heating up the fat and subcutaneous tissue to a critical temperature of 45-47 degrees. Through skin cooling and a special proprietary algorithm of turning on and off the laser energy and varying the pulse duration, the SculpSure treatment is rendered very comfortable. This eliminates the painful temperature spikes. The elevated temperature is sustained in the area for 25 minutes. During this period of time, the temperature elevation will induce a non-inflammatory, apoptotic death of the fat cell (accelerated natural cell death). The fat cells that die will be carried away harmlessly by the body’s immune system. The overall measurement, both circumferentially and in thickness of the area treated will be reduced. SculpSure is a hands free treatment and several areas can be treated in one visit because each zone is treated for only 25 minutes for a successful result. 3-4 zones can be treated in approximately one hour. This is the same amount of time it would take to do CoolSculpting using hypothermic cryolipolysis (freezing the fat) to treat just one zone.
Good candidates for SculpSure, like all candidates for non-surgical liposuction, need to have a realistic expectation of the kind of permanent fat reduction and cosmetic result that can be achieved. In general, SculpSure Edmonton patients can achieve reductions of 3-4 cm after series of 1-3 treatments. Each treatment series is approximately 6 weeks apart and at the end of the 1-3 treatments, SculpSure Edmonton patients can expect a reduction of approximately one dress size.
Patients with unrealistic expectations, or patients with pacemakers, patients with unstable medical diseases or pregnancy are not good candidates for SculpSure and non-surgical liposuction techniques.
There is no topical or local anesthetic required for a SculpSure treatment. The precise and proprietary alteration of pulse duration and skin cooling maintains the epidermal and fat temperatures at a comfortable 45-47 degrees without the need for anesthesia. Each zone takes 25 minutes to treat. SculpSure Edmonton patients can often catch up on emails or watch a movie during treatment. A convenient call button is provided so you can easily contact your treatment provider if you require additional attention.
The SculpSure is not a painful technique. Any amount of discomfort is controlled by the precise thermal regulation of pulse duration and patients find the procedure quite comfortable. Unlike other techniques such as CoolSculpting, where up to 10% of patients may have a significant post treatment neurogenic pain (hypersensitivity) that can last for many weeks, there is no such post-op pain or discomfort following the SculpSure procedure. Patients can return to normal activities immediately.
Yes. Studies have shown that by sustaining the fat temperature at 42-47 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes, permanent death of fat cells occurs. The sustained temperature leads to an apoptosis, or non necrotic fat cell death where the nucleus just stops functioning and dies. However, there is no inflammation with this non-liposuction treatment. SculpSure uses a combination of continuous skin cooling and a proprietary continuous energy modulation to maintain the temperature around the fat. SculpSure can result in 24% permanent reduction in stubborn fat. Over 90% patient satisfaction is reported after SculpSure treatments.
There is no local anesthetic, topical anesthetic required and SculpSure Edmonton patients find the treatment itself is very comfortable. Any discomfort caused by the raise in temperature of the skin is balanced by the constant skin cooling and precise algorithm of rapidly turning on and off the laser energy to sustain the critical temperature needed for fat cell death, but keep it below the uncomfortable nature of skin temperature elevation.
Most Edmonton non-surgical liposuction patients have SculpSure performed with a mild non-steroidal anti-inflammatory or nothing at all. There is no post-operative pain or discomfort. Patients can return to normal activities and exercise immediately.
Edmonton non-surgical liposuction patients that have darker skin, are good candidates for the SculpSure procedure. The 1060 nm laser does not interact with melanin in the skin, so that darker skin types can undergo the procedure.
The “hand’s free” SculpSure procedure itself takes 25 minutes per zone. Twenty minutes of sustained temperature elevation optimizes the permanent non-surgical destruction of fat and then other zones can be treated. Two to three zones can be easily treated within an hour. This makes SculpSure one of the most efficient non-surgical liposuction technologies on the marketplace.
The SculpSure procedure has no significant recovery. There are some minor SculpSure side effects such as a mild redness, erythema and swelling, but patients can return to normal daily activities immediately. There is no exercise restriction and patients can return to exercise immediately. Most significantly, there is no post-operative neurogenic pain and discomfort as one can experience using cooled induced therapy, where the fat is frozen, such as CoolSculpting. Up to 10% of patients have quite a debilitating pain following the treatment.
Most New Image SculpSure patients will not be able to tell that they had the treatment done other than a temporary erythema and swelling, which resolves within a few hours. The area may have a mild degree of swelling and very slight sensitivity for several hours, but should return to normal by the next day. Patients can look good in or out of clothes or within the same day and can return to work the same day or the day following.
With a series of 1 to 3 treatments, SculpSure Edmonton patients can expect a permanent 24% reduction of fat, or a 2-3 cm of circumferential reduction in the areas treated. This means that most patients can achieve a noticeable reduction. New Image Cosmetic is so confident in our non-surgical liposuction program, that if a result is not achieved, a complimentary treatment is provided. Most patients can reduce their waistline by a dress size or pant size.
