When it comes to stubborn fat, SculpSure Body Sculpting can help. Below, Dr. Jehangir answers our questions to teach us more about it.
Q: I’ve been exercising and eating a healthier diet, but I can’t get rid of stubborn fat in certain areas. What gives?
Dr. Jehangir: You have to realize that fat is the key to survival in evolution. Your body does not want to give up fat. It is your social security for when times get hard. Your body knows what it needs to survive, and fat is that thing. It will require extreme measures to get below a certain fat content, and even then, your body may start to revolt. Revolt can look like hair loss, lack of menstruation…basically your body saying you have gone too far.
Q: What is SculpSure?
Dr. Jehangir: SculpSure is a laser designed specifically to destroy fat cells. Lasers are amazing. Basically, we pass light through a crystal that aligns and organizes it. We then pick out the wavelength of light that is drawn to fat, and voila! A fat-blasting laser.
Q: How do I know if I’m the right candidate for SculpSure?
Dr. Jehangir: The best way is to come in for a consult. We custom design a plan for you and your goals.
Q: What can I expect during a SculpSure treatment?
Dr. Jehangir: The procedure takes 25 minutes. You may experience some tingling while the laser heats up the fat. Once the procedure is done, the body has to reabsorb the dead fat cells. So afterward, massage and hydration are your friends.
Q: Is there a difference between SculpSure and other nonsurgical fat-reduction treatments like cool sculpting?
Dr. Jehangir: There is a Robert Frost poem, “Fire and Ice”:
“Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.”
Both extreme cold and extreme heat can destroy fat cells, so lasers are “Fire,” whereas cool sculpting is “Ice.”
Q: How fast will I see results, and will they last?
Dr. Jehangir: Once you destroy a fat cell it is permanent. Studies show an up to 30% reduction in that area.
