SculpSure®: The Latest In Cutting-edge Body Contouring Technology

Earlier this year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that as new minimally invasive and cosmetic procedures have emerged, the demand for innovative ways to shape the body has exploded. In fact, body contouring is one of the fastest growing aesthetic treatments in the US. Fat freezing technologies like CoolSculpting®, non-surgical cellulite treatments like Cellfina® and laser skin tightening procedures like Thermage® and Ulthera® are the most sought after treatments. In contrast, liposuction, the once synonymous surgical treatment for liquidating fat, has seen a steep decline.

Non-invasive fat reduction methods not only require significantly less down time, but also carry a substantially lower price tag, making body shaping much more accessible.

We wanted to learn more about the latest in innovative aesthetic procedures and turned to Mitchell A. Kline, MD, one of the top dermatologists in New York City, and a trusted Travel Beauty expert. Dr. Kline recently introduced a non-invasive fat-busting treatment at his practice called SculpSure®.

TB: What is SculpSure® and how does it work?

DK: SculpSure® is an FDA-approved, non-invasive body contouring treatment that reduces stubborn fat cells around the abdomen and surrounding area. It is ideal for the treatment of love handles. Using heat-based laser technology it permanently eliminates fat cells. Up to 24% of lipid deposits can be destroyed in a single treatment and most sessions last only 25 minutes. Most patients undergo several sessions during the course of treatment.

TB: Why is SculpSure® your contouring treatment of choice?

As of late, there has been a major cultural shift relating to the way in which we incorporate wellness into our daily lives. Many of my patients have made a serious commitment to maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle including eating healthier foods, incorporating more exercise into their daily routine as well as getting more sleep. In many cases, despite their best efforts, some areas of the body show no signs of improvement. Often this is a result of genetic programming and age. When your DNA refuses to get with the program, SculpSure® can effectively eradicate that last stubborn area of seemingly untouchable body fat. Patients report that their clothes fit better, and more importantly, they feel more comfortable in their own skin.

Time efficiency is also extremely attractive to patients who are busy and on the go – which is pretty much everyone. Additionally, compared to the alternatives, patients experience much less discomfort.

TB: What results are you seeing with SculpSure®?

On average SculpSure® can eliminate up to almost a quarter of fat cells that reside directly under the skin. Many patients start to see results in just six weeks. These are phenomenal results, particularly for individuals that have painstakingly tried everything to no avail.

That said, everyone is different. During the consultation, I discuss the procedure at length, with my patients. We agree upon realistic goals that are achievable. Generally, by the third or fourth treatment we see the most impressive outcomes. Some patients have dropped a full dress size (for the first time in decades!). One patient trimmed 1.5” off her waist in two months with only two treatments.

TB: Who is a good candidate for SculpSure®?

DK: Candidates considering this procedure must undergo a consultation in order for us to asses if SculpSure® is right for them. A common misconception with regard to body contouring devices is that they can be utilized to assist individuals seeking significant weight loss. This is not the case. The best candidates for SculpSure® are those who have isolated areas of excess fat that they wish to address.

TB: With so many innovative technologies, what will the future of body contouring will look like?

DK: I expect that technologies like SculpSure® will be combined with other treatments like non-invasive tightening and Radiofrequency Microneedling to achieve total body rejuvenation.

Charlotte’s Book Fall Beauty & Wellness Treatments

Fall is here, and as we spend less time outdoors, on the beach and in the pool, we have more time to think about all the personal care we let slip in the name of late summer nights, hot dogs and frozen daiquiris.

We scoured Charlotte’s Book—the Wikileaks of wellness and beauty—to research ways we could absolve ourselves of the summer sins we’ve committed. Here is a roundup our favorite CB reads focused on aesthetic and wellness treatments to help us look and feel our best.

HOT? TRY CRYOTHERAPY: THE BEST WAY TO COOL DOWN, DE-STRESS, AND INCREASE METABOLISM

Freezing yourself seems extreme. But the benefits of Cryotheraphy—a 2-3 minute full-body freeze in a chamber where nitrogen-iced air circulates at minus-200 degrees Fahrenheit—has purported benefits that range from stress relief to reduced inflammation, better sleep, improved skin tone, and increased metabolism.

ULTRASHAPE: WHEN BARRY’S BOOTCAMP ISN’T ENOUGH

For how long have you wished that you could magically erase fat off of your body? Technology is finally catching up with our dreams of obtaining a sleek silhouette, despite stubborn areas of extra fat that seem impossible to get rid of, no matter how many Barry’s Bootcamp classes you endure. The first fat-zapper to the scene was CoolSculpting, which kills fat cells by freezing them to death, then your body gradually flushes it out over a period of two to four months. Now…. Read more.

LET THERE BE LIGHT (AND LASER): WE TRIED CLEAR + BRILLIANT

My skin may be young (I’m 24 years old), but that doesn’t mean it’s problem-free. From adolescent acne to eczema, and now adult acne (it just keeps getting better, right?), hyperpigmentation, scarring, and reoccurring blemishes are always on my list of skincare concerns to tackle. When I learned about Clear + Brilliant, a gentle laser treatment that evens skin tone and boosts radiance with no downtime, I was ready to sign up. Read more.
