Laser Fat Reduction Q & A

What is laser fat reduction?

Laser fat reduction is an innovative method of refining the contours of your body without needing to undergo invasive surgical procedures. The team of specialists at Refine Medical Aesthetics uses the state-of-the-art SculpSure laser fat reduction technology, which they’ve found to be most effective in reducing areas of unwanted fat.

Many people who are otherwise fit and healthy, or have successfully lost excess weight and are on or near their target weight, find they have pockets of fat in certain places that they don’t seem able to shift.

Problems such as love handles, bra rolls, and podgy bellies are often resistant to diet and exercise. This could be because the fat cells in these areas are slightly different to those elsewhere on the body and have stronger programming to retain fat as a biological safeguard. Laser fat reduction can target these stubborn fat pads and rolls, permanently destroying excess fat cells.

How does laser fat reduction work?

SculpSure laser fat reduction works using light-based laser energy that targets fat cells in the treatment area and delivers heat at just the right temperature to destroy the fat cells.

The SculpSure unit uses a precisely calibrated heat that only affects fat cells, leaving all other tissues unharmed. SculpSure has four applicators that enable your practitioner to ensure that laser fat reduction treatment targets your particular problem areas, including:

  • Belly
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin

There’s also cooling technology built into the system that ensures your skin never gets too hot, and you remain comfortable throughout the procedure.

Once the fat cells are dead, your body breaks down the molecules and flushes them out of your system over the weeks and months following your SculpSure treatment.

What does laser fat reduction treatment involve?

SculpSure laser fat reduction treatment typically takes around 30 minutes, and you can have several areas treated during one session. You may feel a tingling in your skin during the treatment, and afterward, you may experience mild swelling and tenderness, but these effects are so mild, if present, that most patients can resume their normal activities straight after treatment.

Your body needs time to break down and dispose of the dead fat cells, so you won’t see immediate results after a SculpSure session. After six weeks you should begin to see a difference, with final results being apparent after three months.
