Imagine walking on the beach or lounging by the pool and feeling completely comfortable about every part of your body. That’s confidence.
But it takes more than shedding a few pounds to give you confidence in a swimsuit. Jeans and shorts are one thing, but stripping down to the bare minimum is something different altogether. It seems that every imperfection shows, especially those stubborn pockets of fat that don’t go away no matter what you try.
Dr. Lamia Gabal and her expert staff at Prestige Medical Group in Santa Ana, California, specialize in helping patients discover their inner and outer beauty through advanced technology, including SculpSure®. This FDA-approved, noninvasive, painless, and effective procedure can help you finally attain the body you feel great about.
Why crunches don’t get rid of your muffin top
When you’re generally overweight, a healthy diet and proper exercise can make a big difference. But when it comes down to those last few pounds and that annoying pudge at your waistline, no amount of sit ups does the trick.
What you’re attempting is called spot reduction — trying to dictate to your body exactly where it should shed fat. And it doesn’t work.
Losing fat and building muscle are two different processes. When you lift weights or do crunches, you are building lean muscle, which is great for toning, boosting your metabolism, curbing your appetite, and, yes, burning fat — but not necessarily from the area nearest the muscles you’re flexing. Fat is funny that way.
Blasting a certain muscle group is good for a lot of reasons, but when it comes to burning fat stores, exercise is an equal-opportunity consumer. You can’t choose where your body loses fat — but SculpSure can.
SculpSure makes spot reduction possible
When you’re close to your goal weight and just need to eliminate the last few exercise-resistant fat pockets, there’s hope. What was once an unattainable myth — spot-reducing your fat — is now a reality with SculpSure.
SculpSure targets very specific areas — like your love handles, muffin top, saddle bags, and even your double chin — allowing you to override biology and genetics and be the boss of your own body. It slims you down, smooths you out, and does wonders for your swimsuit body.
Your personalized SculpSure session
Dr. Gabal starts your appointment by getting to know you and your unique goals. She is passionate about your health and cosmetic concerns, and our entire office and staff reflect that. We’re here to help you feel comfortable, healthy, and confident.
If you and Dr. Gabal decide SculpSure is right for you, we think you’ll find that the treatment sessions are quite pleasant. The flat applicator heats the area you want to treat up to about 45 degrees Celsius, or 113 degrees Fahrenheit. Don’t worry, we cool your skin before and after the treatment so you don’t feel any discomfort.
While you sit back and relax, something truly amazing happens beneath the surface of your skin. The heat from the applicator’s lasers destroy your fat cells. And fat cells can’t regenerate, meaning that once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle after your SculpSure treatments and don’t gain weight, your newly contoured body lasts for years.
Each session only takes about 25 minutes. SculpSure also requires no downtime, so you can go back to work, go shopping, and carry on as usual after you leave the office.
While SculpSure is not a quick fix, it’s a safe and reliable choice for anyone seeking lasting effects. The process happens gradually as your body flushes out the dead fat cells. In general, most people opt for multiple treatments and see results in 6-12 weeks. And the newfound confidence in your own skin lasts for years.
