You CAN Spot Reduce with SculpSure Fat Loss Treatments
The majority of adults in the US have at least one, or more, troublesome area of fat deposits on their body that they wish they could get rid of. Even people who are at or near their ideal weight often have a belly ‘pooch’, love handles, or ‘saddle bags’ that make them cringe when they look in the mirror.
But, as any personal trainer or fitness guru will tell you, you can’t ‘spot reduce’ these areas of unwanted fat with exercise or diet. However, what they may not tell you is that men and women CAN spot reduce unwanted pockets of fat with revolutionary SculpSure fat loss technology.
SculpSure non-invasive fat loss treatment turns the old adage that spot reducing is an unattainable goal on its head. Using patented, gentle but powerful laser technology, SculpSure heats and destroys the fat cells underneath the skin, without affecting the outer layers of skin – effectively sculpting and spot reducing trouble fat areas by eliminating up to 24% of the fat cells in the treated area.
In this article, the fat loss experts at Goldenberg Dermatology in Manhattan explain the science behind this cutting-edge technology and explain how you CAN spot reduce with SculpSure fat loss treatments.
What is “Spot Reducing”?
The journey towards achieving a leaner, more sculpted body has led individuals to explore various diets, exercise routines, and treatments. However, one persistent challenge has been the notion of “spot reducing,” or the ability to selectively target and eliminate fat in specific areas.
“Spot reducing” refers to the idea of eliminating fat from specific targeted areas of the body – rather than generalized fat loss from the surrounding regions and the rest of the body. In other words, spot reducing aims to remove a lot of fat from one or more trouble spots – rather than merely reducing fat a little bit across the entire body. For example, a woman may want to reduce fat in the belly, while not losing fat in her ‘booty’ or breasts.
Many people have strived to ‘spot reduce’ through traditional methods like diet and exercise, but the consensus among experts has been that spot reduction is a myth – until now, thanks to state-of-the-art fat loss treatments like SculpSure!
Why You Can’t Spot Reduce Fat with Diet
The limitations of spot reducing are evident when considering diet alone. While adopting a healthy eating regimen contributes to overall fat loss, the body doesn’t differentiate between fat stored in specific areas. Instead, it follows a general pattern of fat reduction that varies from person to person. This means that even with a meticulously planned diet, achieving spot reduction remains elusive.
Why You Can’t Spot Reduce Fat with Exercise
Similarly, exercise can’t target fat loss in specific areas. Engaging in targeted exercises, such as sit-ups for belly fat, does NOT directly lead to spot reduction. Instead, these exercises can strengthen muscles in the region, potentially giving the appearance of a toned area – but only once fat loss occurs throughout the entire body.
The Role of Genetics in Distribution of Fat Cells
One crucial aspect often overlooked in the quest for spot reduction is the role of heredity. The distribution of fat cells throughout the body is largely determined by genetic factors. Some individuals are genetically predisposed to carry excess fat in certain areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, or arms. Chances are if your mom or sisters have big thighs, so do you! Your DNA determines where your body stores fat – and this genetic influence is what makes spot reduction through traditional methods so challenging.
It’s essential to understand that once fat cells are established in specific areas, they are there to stay. Fat cells can expand or shrink with weight gain or loss, but their numbers remain constant once adulthood is reached. Dieting and exercise can shrink these fat cells – but they don’t go away. So there they sit, just waiting to plump up again when you stop dieting, cut back on activity, or even experience hormonal decline from menopause or andropause.
This is why targeted fat loss through diet and exercise can be so frustrating – the fat cells in those areas don’t ever disappear, making it impossible to achieve spot reduction.
How SculpSure Fat Loss Treatments Permanently “Spot Reduce”
Goldenberg Dermatology in Manhattan offers SculpSure treatments that have revolutionized the concept of spot reducing. Imagine a world where you could effectively target and reduce fat in specific areas without resorting to invasive surgeries or relying solely on slow, tedious, temporary, and often unsuccessful dieting.
SculpSure is a non-invasive laser treatment that utilizes state-of-the-art technology to target and permanently eliminate fat cells in specific areas. The procedure uses controlled laser energy to heat fat cells beneath the skin’s surface, causing them to break down over time. The heat energy is delivered by a hand-held device that is applied to the skin in the “trouble spots”. The heat causes the fat cells to rupture and die.
Once broken down, these fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. SculpSure treatments are typically done in 25-minute sessions. And the results of SculpSure treatments can be seen as early as six weeks after treatment. However, it takes up to 12 weeks to see the full results.
SculpSure treatments can reduce fat by up to 24% in a single treatment. There is no downtime after SculpSure fat loss and spot reducing treatments. And the results of SculpSure treatments are permanent, as the destroyed fat cells cannot regenerate or return in that area.
