In magazines and on televisions across the world, models show off their perfectly sculpted bodies. While these may be unrealistic goals, many Knoxville residents are also looking for ways to tone their bodies. There are many ways to drop a pants size or feel better in a bathing suit – a Paleo lifestyle, a new cross fit box, hot yoga, or even just eating more vegetables and less apple pie, there isn’t a one size fits all solution to losing weight and feeling better.
What many individuals find is that no matter how many times they hit the gym or how many carbs they stop eating, there are pockets of fat that simply won’t budge. This can lead to frustration, and can damage a person’s self-confidence. Patients who really want to make a change may thing that plastic surgery is their only option.
Dr. Matthew Doppelt of Southeastern Dermatology now offers SculpSure in Knoxville to his patients as a way to address those stubborn fat areas without incisions and stitches. SculpSure heats the tissue below the skin, delivering energy directly to the fat cells. The technology is so advanced that it targets the fat cells and leaves the other cells intact. The fat cells are broken down by the heat and then naturally flushed from the body. The treatment is not only effective, it’s also quick and painless.
I was surprised the procedure was not painful. There was some slight discomfort from the heat but very tolerable! Six weeks later, I was amazed. I knew that it worked because my jeans fit a little looser (no muffin top anymore!) but was shocked at the before and afters and the measurements! I lost a total of 3 1/2 inches!
The procedure only requires a single office visit, which is usually complete in less than 30 minutes, even if several areas of the body are treated at the same time. SculpSure uses an exclusive cooling technology that keeps the skin cool while the heat is delivered to the fat cells, so there is no pain or discomfort for the patient. In the weeks and months that follow the treatment, the fat cells will be removed from the body slowly unveiling great results for up to three months.
Patients are turning to SculpSure because it’s a non-invasive solution. Other treatments, such as liposuction, require anesthesia, incisions, and recovery time. With SculpSure, patients can typically return to their daily routine immediately. Furthermore, unlike other non-invasive procedures that involve several treatments over a number of weeks or months, this procedure works with a single appointment.
SculpSure can now be used to reduce and tighten excess skin and fat under the chin. Southeastern Dermatology is the first in Knoxville to offer the petite mask FDA cleared for skin tightening.
It’s important to note that SculpSure won’t help patients drop many pounds or dress sizes. It will address trouble spots on the stomach, legs, arms, obliques, and back and help patients feel better in their jeans or on the beach. For more information about SculpSure, call Southern Dermatology today.
