Non-invasive body contouring procedures have become one of the most coveted treatments around the world. These treatments are effective for short-term and long-term fat loss goals. Although there are surgeries that physically remove fat from the body, many patients find these procedures too invasive, risky, and even dangerous. Plus, the recovery time from surgeries can take weeks to months. The SculpSure treatment has become so popular because it is non-invasive and does not penetrate the skin at all. Technology has developed to the point where we no longer require invasive methods to achieve goals like body contouring or skin rejuvenation. Here’s what you need to know about what to do after a SculpSure treatment to get the best results.
SculpSure to Reduce Body Fat
The SculpSure treatment is a great solution for those looking to remove that extra bulge that just won’t go away. It works best on people who are already physically active and who eat well but can’t seem to target those stubborn areas of fat. One of the hardest places to lose fat is the abdomen, and SculpSure is a safe and effective method to eliminate the unwanted fat cells in these areas. In fact, the area with the highest success rate is the flank or “love handles”.
It is important to keep in mind, that SculpSure is not a weight loss treatment. Patients cannot lose large volumes of fat in large areas, because the treatment is designed to target only small trouble areas. The SculpSure treatment can remove up to 24% of unwanted fat on the treated sites after one session. Most people need more than one session to achieve their body contouring goals.
How does it work? SculpSure targets the fat cells in the treatment site by destroying the cells permanently. These destroyed cells are then naturally absorbed and expelled from the body through the lymphatic system, without harming the surface of the skin. It takes about 12 weeks to see complete results of the treatment, which can be repeated every six weeks. Although there is no downtime, there are things you can do to achieve optimal results.
What to Do Immediately after SculpSure
There is no downtime after the SculpSure treatment, which is why so many people choose it as their solution to eliminate stubborn fat. You will be able to return to your normal activities the same day as your treatment. After the treatment you may feel slight discomfort in the part of your body that was treated, in the similar way as your muscles feel after intense exercise. You may also notice mild redness, and swelling or firmness in the area. Here are some tips to keep in mind after the treatment to get optimal results:
- Drink plenty of water in the following days and weeks
- Take a few minutes to rest and relax
- Gently massage the treated area
- Perform mild exercise the same day to help your body break down the fatty tissue
What to Do in the Weeks after SculpSure
Drink More Water
Increasing your water intake in the days and weeks following the SculpSure treatment can speed your body’s healing process. Water helps filter your blood and cells, causing the fat cells to be expelled more efficiently. It also works as a helpful appetite suppressor so you can avoid snacking and going against your exercise plan.
Massaging the treated area is a great way to ease the discomfort and encourage the body to filter out the dead fat cells. In the weeks after treatment, massage the area two to three times daily for five to 10 minutes. Unsure of how to massage after SculpSure? Simply rubbing or kneading will work. Or, you can also use a small hand-held massager to save your hands from the work.
To relieve discomfort, you can also use a cold compress. This will relieve the redness, reduce swelling, and help the area to feel comfortable and soothed.
If you are extra sensitive to the discomfort from the procedure, you may use Tylenol to help. However, you should not use anti-inflammatory medications such as Aspirin, Advil, Motrin, or Aleve for at least 10 days after the treatment.
Can you exercise after SculpSure? Of course! The procedure works best on people who are already active and eat healthily, so after treatment you should do your best to maintain your usual workout routine and diet. Keeping your body running as normally as possible will speed up the healing process and help your SculpSure treatment provide the best results.
