A: A small cannula approximately 1.0 mm in diameter containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The cannula is used with a back and forth motion delivering the laser's energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. Only local anesthesia is used at the entry point for the cannula and tumescent anesthesia is used to create lift between the fat and muscle layers. As an added benefit of LaserSculpt, the heat produced during the treatment can create a skin tightening effect, thus helping create a more balanced skin texture.
A: LaserSculpt is used to treat localized fat deposits, cellulite and skin tightening in the following areas: Face (chin), Knees, Back, Abdomen, Arms, Thighs, Hips, Obliques (love-handles)
A: With the growing market for body sculpting, LaserSculpt is the ideal tool for reducing localized fat deposits. Benefits range from overall circumference reduction targeting troublesome areas (not affected by exercise and diet), as well as skin tightening. LaserSculpt is a great balance between overall results and patient satisfaction.
A: Clients have seen dramatic improvements within 1 to 2 weeks after the treatment, but some areas such as the neck and jaw can show results faster.
Because healing and metabolism rates are different with everyone, results following a LaserSculpt treatment usually require 12 to 16 weeks to become fully apparent. Optimal results are between 3-6 months on average.
A: Primarily LaserSculpt treatments are considered a "one-time" treatment, but results can vary depending on how well the patient follows post-operative guidelines. After the "final" results are achieved if the patient and/or physician are not satisfied with the results, a "touch-up" treatment can be performed.
A: Upon arrival at the clinic, a Patient History Questionnaire will be completed and reviewed by the physician to ensure that you are a candidate; this is for your health and safety. Also, a list of contra-indicated medications will be given for you to review. These medications may interfere with the LaserSculpt procedure and will be addressed by the physician during your visit.
A: Absolutely! LaserSculpt has been cleared for use in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration.
