In my last post, I discussed body type and why, despite diet and exercise, problem areas can remain an annoyance. And, I provided highlights of the techniques to deal with these problem areas. Now, I will expand further and give you some tips on how to decide what treatment methodology is optimal for you. Of course, I’ll always be here to guide you in all of your decision making, but it helps for you to have an understanding of each protocol and its strengths and limitations so that together we can make informed and optimal decisions.
Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center is proud to be the first provider in Pittsburgh to offer truSculpt® iD, a revolutionary, non-surgical body-sculpting treatment that lets you personalize your best body in as little as one 15-minute therapy. truSculpt iD is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that makes use of monopolar radiofrequency technology for body contouring, body sculpting, fat reduction, and cellulite reduction. It’s comfortable, reliable, and is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas such as your abdomen, love handles, bra overhang, chin, thighs, arms, and calves.
SculpSure® Body Contouring – SculpSure is a cutting edge, non-invasive and painless fat melting modality. It is pretty much a very effective treatment when it comes to eliminating localized areas of fat, such as love handles, abdomen, flanks, thighs…even some knees! One 25 minute SculpSure session will show results, but sometimes multiple sessions are needed for optimal outcomes.
Here are some of the highlights of SculpSure:
- An abdomen or two love handles can be treated in a single 25-minute treatment.
- This laser provides better coverage of the affected area than any other non-invasive device on the market today.
- Because the procedure is largely computerized, the procedure is always optimized.
- The treatment is completely non-invasive.
- You will experience no downtime and won’t need any pain medication prior, during or post-treatment. You won’t even bruise!
SculpSure is a laser treatment that actually melts away fat! After the treatment, the melted fat is gradually eliminated from your body. Observable benefits will be seen within four weeks and the full effect will show by week 12.
If you are close to your ideal body weight but have a few areas that simply will not respond to diet and exercise, then SculpSure is for you.
SlimLipo® – This cutting edge laser technology will both slim and reshape through laser lipolysis, or fat melting and skin tightening. This is laser-assisted liposuction, so it is more invasive than SculpSure, but people are still able to walk out after the procedure and be active to their tolerance. SlimLipo® is intended for those who have larger fat deposits and perhaps some skin laxity. In this procedure, the fat is reduced by laser, then liposuction is performed to remove this melted fat, followed by more laser to help tighten the skin. There is generally no pain and virtually no downtime. Depending on the area being treated, most people can return to work in two days and physical activity is encouraged from day 1. A compression garment must be worn – using a prescribed protocol.
Stretchmark Correction – If you have stretch marks from childbirth or weight loss, our light-based laser treatments can give you a smoother and younger looking appearance.
