SculpSure (also known as WarmSculpting) is a new, cutting-edge body sculpting/contouring treatment that has taken the beauty industry by storm. Compared to other fat-loss treatments on the market, it is one of the safest, most effective options to help you achieve the slimmer, more toned body you’ve always wanted.
Despite the rave reviews online, however, there are also a lot of misconceptions about how the treatment works. And with so much misinformation, it can be hard to decipher between the myths and facts about SculpSure.
At the Anti Aging Toronto Clinic, we believe in helping our patients make informed decisions about their face and body.
So, here are six common SculpSure myths debunked to help you decide if SculpSure is the right fat-loss treatment for you.
Myth #1: SculpSure Results Are Temporary
Unlike many other quick fat-loss procedures, the results of SculpSure/WarmSculpting are permanent.
The procedure works by destroying fat cells in the targeted areas, and then eliminating the fat cells through the body’s lymphatic system. Once the fat cells have been removed, they are gone for good and will not grow back.
Consider this: each person carries a definite number of fat cells in their body. When you gain or lose weight, those fat cells either increase or decrease in size; you don’t gain or lose fat cells. The only way to lose fat cells is to undergo a fat-loss procedure like SculpSure. This is why the fat cells will never regenerate or grow back.
With a healthy diet and continuous exercise, the benefits of SculpSure are long-term.
Myth #2: SculpSure Works Only on Stomach Fat
In a way, this is both a myth and fact about SculpSure. While SculpSure is a great procedure to target unwanted love handles and excess fat in the abdomen, there are also several other areas on the body where the procedure has been FDA-approved to work.
These areas include:
- Love-handles or flanks fat
- Under-bra fat
- Upper back fat
- Back humps
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Back of thighs
- Front of thighs
Myth #3: All Non-Surgical Treatments Are the Same
This couldn’t be further from the truth. While non-surgical fat-loss treatments seem to be extremely popular these days, each treatment delivers different results and provides a completely different experience overall.
Yes, the end goal may be the same—to eliminate fat cells for good—but the methods used vary for each procedure. Plus, not all treatments are FDA-cleared or FDA-approved.
Take, for instance, Kybella, a form of fat reduction that uses deoxycholic acid or Belkyra injections to permanently dissolve fat. While both SculpSure and Kybella are effective fat-loss treatments, Kybella requires up to six sessions for optimal results, while SculpSure only requires two or three sessions. Kybella also uses injections to dissolve fat, while SculpSure uses lasers to eliminate fat cells.
SculpSure is also FDA-cleared for numerous areas on the body and requires no downtime compared to other non-surgical fat-loss procedures, such as CoolSculpting and laser liposuction.
Myth #4: Results Are Visible Immediately
We wish this were true, but unfortunately, we have to debunk this SculpSure myth. No fat-loss procedure, not even liposuction, can deliver immediate results.
Most SculpSure/WarmSculpting patients start to see results after only one treatment; however, the best results are visible around the 12-week mark.
Why? Because, in order for SculpSure to work, the body must naturally eliminate destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system, which could take a few weeks.
Every patient is different, and results will vary. But for the best results, it’s recommended that patients get two treatments per area, about four to six weeks apart.
Compared to liposuction, which could take up to a year to see results, SculpSure is an effective fat-loss procedure that provides up to 24% fat reduction after just one treatment.
Myth #5: SculpSure Is Very Painful
We are more than happy to debunk this SculpSure myth. SculpSure is considered a very tolerable treatment. It is not painful, although the exact sensation depends on each patient’s pain tolerance and how much fat is in the treated area. The more fat tissue in the treatment area, the more discomfort a patient might feel.
That said, most patients describe the procedure as a warmth or tingling sensation, while others experience feelings of cold and hot.
The cold sensation is a result of the cooling applied during the full 25 minutes of the procedure to the treated area to keep the skin comfortable and protected during the treatment. The hot sensation is the laser working to raise the temperature of the fat cells and melt the fat away.
Regardless of what sensation you feel, any discomfort should subside within 25 minutes.
Myth #6: SculpSure Is Expensive
When you compare the cost of SculpSure to the cost of other fat-loss treatments, like liposuction, SculpSure is actually the most economical option.
Liposuction can cost between $3,500 and $10,000; meanwhile, the average cost of SculpSure is $2,000 to $5,000—that’s almost half the price.
Given that SculpSure produces the same long-term results as liposuction (if not better) and has virtually no downtime, SculpSure is the best option by far.
Plus, many clinics offer packages where patients can bundle treatments and receive discounts. As a way to show our customers how much we appreciate them, the Anti Aging Toronto Clinic, for instance, is offering a special promotion on SculpSure treatments for the summer. When our clients book a SculpSure treatment, they’ll get two radio frequency treatments to tighten their skin for free.
