3 Reasons Body Sculpting Is Worth Trying

Body sculpting is a treatment that removes fat cells from specific areas of your body. Although a healthy lifestyle is always key to get the body you want, body sculpting is a great way to help you achieve lasting results.

How body sculpting works

Body sculpting uses radio frequency directed at fat cells that increases the temperature beyond what the cells can withstand. The procedure causes the fat cells to die. Once a cell is dead, your body naturally processes and removes it. Fat cells can’t regenerate, so once destroyed, the cell is gone permanently from the treatment area.

Body sculpting can be accomplished with various equipment. At Integrative Laser Center of Washington, Dr. Bryan C. McIntosh uses the CUTERA truSculpt® 3D, which is known to achieve a reduction in fat thickness of almost a quarter of the original size.

Here are 3 reasons why body sculpting is worth trying:

No surgery and no downtime

The biggest advantage of body sculpting is the fact that you don't need a heavy surgical procedure to get results. With liposuction, for example, fat cells are removed in a cosmetic procedure. With body sculpting, the treatment is completely external and you’re able to stand up after finishing your session as if nothing has happened. Without the invasive procedure, there is also a reduced risk of complications.

Body sculpting is also more accessible for patients who might not be good candidates for other procedures because of their general health.

Furthermore, the treatment requires no downtime. After the procedure, you’re welcome to resume your normal life without restrictions. The absence of downtime also makes this treatment much more convenient than other procedures.

Significant results within 3 months

With body sculpting, you won't see results the minute you get up from the doctor’s chair, but the results that you achieve within three months of treatment are amazing. Dr. McIntosh sees an average of 24% reduction in fat thickness after just one treatment! But you have to be a bit patient — it takes time for the fat cells to die and for your body to remove them. So don’t be disappointed if you don't see an immediate reduction of the treated area. Expect to wait 6-8 weeks to see significant results; maximum results should be visible in three months.

Lasting results

Body sculpting provides lasting results. Fat cells that are destroyed and removed from your body don't regenerate, so the reduced volume in the treated zone is long-lasting. Although the fat cells are gone, it’s still recommended that you look into healthy lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise. This ensures that the area likely won’t grow after body sculpting. If you do gain weight, the treatment area most likely will get larger, but still smaller compared with other, untreated, areas.

When used in tandem with other healthy lifestyle choices, body sculpting is a great way to see fast and lasting results. You’ll look great. You’ll feel great. Patients typically comment on how confident they feel after a procedure.

Are you ready to give body sculpting a try and say goodbye permanently to those stubborn fat cells? Do you want to start dealing with your trouble zones in a safe and efficient way? Or do you simply want to learn more about the procedure and your options to see if it’s right for you?
