Weight loss is never an easy task, but while fat around the belly can be burned with healthy eating and a steady workout routine, thigh fat seems to be more stubborn. There are several reasons why the inner and outer thighs, also known as saddlebags, are a challenging area to lose fat. Here’s what you need to know about why thigh fat is hard to lose, and how the SculpSure treatment can help you lose thigh fats for good.

Why Is Thigh Fat Difficult to Lose?
Thigh fat is difficult to lose for multiple reasons. For some people, genetics are to blame for a pear-shaped figure, but it seems that women seem to struggle with this more than men. Women are predisposed to storing excess fat in the hips and thighs because of genes that cause hormones like estrogen to turn calories into fat for storage. Another reason why many people struggle to slim their thighs is from doing workouts like squats, lunges, leg curls, deadlifts, leg extensions, and calf raises. These workouts do wonders for your health and strength, but they will not slim your thighs. These exercises will have the opposite effect by building muscle mass which will make your thighs appear larger. Instead, stick to cardiovascular exercises like biking, running, and sports, but avoid high resistance and hilly terrain. If after making these changes you still struggle to lose stubborn thigh fat, the SculpSure treatment for inner and outer thighs and legs is a revolutionary treatment option.
SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting: Which Treatment Is Best for Thighs?
CoolSculpting is different from SculpSure because it uses controlled freezing to destroy fat cells, as opposed to heat. This results in spot reductions of fat bulges and pockets. It is a non-invasive option that many have chosen for their fat loss. SculpSure, however, is a better option than CoolSculpting because it has less risk and discomfort. CoolSculpting requires a gel sheet to be placed on the skin to protect it from frostbite, and the cold vacuuming applicator leads to numbness and pain that feels like standing in cold snow with bare legs. After that first hour of treatment, the technician will massage the frozen fat back into the body, which can make people feel a deep ache that can be nauseating for several minutes. CoolSculpting also takes longer—up to an hour—before the treatment is complete.
SculpSure Treatment for Inner and Outer Thighs (Saddlebags)
The SculpSure treatment uses laser technology to pass heat through the dermis to target fat cells. The heat will melt these fat cells, and over the next few weeks post-treatment, the dead fat cells absorb into the body and are eliminated as waste. The treatment is permanent since once the fat cells are gone, they never reproduce.
The laser used in the procedure heats up the fat cells to a temperature of between 42 and 47 degrees Celsius, without affecting the skin’s surface. After the moment of heat, the machine quickly becomes cold and cools down the skin. This occurs several times until the fat cells have died. Although the treatment may have some discomfort, many patients say the time passes quickly and there is no long-lasting discomfort. The heating and cooling system prevents irritation and soreness of the surface skin. The full treatment takes about 25 minutes, and the results can be seen within six weeks after the procedure. Most people need about two sessions to see the best results, and the results are astounding.
FAQ about the SculpSure Treatment for the Thigh Area
How soon can I get SculpSure on my thighs after a tummy tuck?
Before getting the SculpSure treatment you should make sure that you have fully healed, with no signs or symptoms of an infection from a previous procedure or treatment. It’s best to consult with your surgeon before deciding and starting a new treatment. However, as long as there is no irritation or swelling in the area that you need treated, you should be okay.
Can both the legs be treated on the same day?
Yes. The SculpSure treatment can treat multiple areas at once during the same session.
How much does SculpSure cost?
The cost of SculpSure for thighs depends on the area you need treated, and how many areas you want treated at the same time.
