How to Get Rid of Stubborn Fat Pockets without Surgery

Right now, you may not be thinking about how you’ll look in a bathing suit this summer, but soon the weather will turn warmer, and you’ll be wearing skimpier clothing and hitting the pool or the beach. The unwanted lumps, stubborn fat pockets, and rolls that you’ve been able to cover up with jeans or loose clothing will come out of hiding.

If you’ve tried diet and exercise and failed to get the body smoothing results you want, it may be time to consider WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure®. It’s an innovative fat reduction treatment that can permanently eliminate up to 24% of fat cells in treated areas. 

How does WarmSculpting with SculpSure work?

WarmSculpting is an FDA-approved laser treatment that targets unwanted fat cells on your abdomen, flanks (sides of torso), back, and inner and outer thighs. Using the SculpSure device, WarmSculpting can also target unwanted fat under your chin. 

At Los Gatos Dermatology, a member of our team, under the direction of board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Bruce Saal, MD, uses a laser device to deliver heat energy to fat cells in the target area. Each session lasts about 25 minutes. 

Depending on your desired results, you may need more than one treatment. As these targeted fat cells slowly die off and leave your body naturally, you will notice a smaller, slimmer, and improved body shape.

The procedure is pain-free and quick. You can even squeeze in a treatment on your lunch hour. There’s no downtime, and you can return to your regularly scheduled activities after your procedure.

What kind of results can I expect?

You can expect a flatter stomach, shapelier thighs, and a smoother back, depending on where you get your treatments. Most people begin to see results from WarmSculpting with SculpSure treatments within six weeks, but maximum results generally aren’t visible until three months after treatment.

One of the best aspects of this procedure is that you can enjoy your new slimmer and shapelier figure for as long as you maintain your weight. Results are permanent. Even better, if you do gain weight, you may notice less weight gain in the treatment areas.

Side effects are minimal and temporary. But note that SculpSure is not a weight-loss procedure. It can, though, help you look slimmer and better, and boost your confidence without surgery. 

Ready to find out more about how you can get the figure you’ve always wanted, without surgery or downtime? Call us at Los Gatos Dermatology in Los Gatos, California, for a SculpSure consultation.
