I-Lipo vs. SculpSure

If your diet and exercise attempts aren’t working, you still have several options to get rid of unwanted fat. Most people are familiar with liposuction, which is a surgical procedure to remove fat. Now, however, nonsurgical ways are available to reduce fat faster and with less pain.

Two of the nonsurgical methods are i-Lipo and SculpSure. These give you results without needles and without recovery time. Only SculpSure can provide you with permanent and safe body contouring for those fat pockets you can’t seem to lose.

How does SculpSure Work?

SculpSure is an FDA-approved, light-based treatment. Using a 1,060-nanometer laser, the SculpSure technology breaks down stored fat in your body without hurting other tissues. SculpSure is not invasive, and you will not need anesthesia to go through this procedure.

The process is as follows:

      1. Laser energy targets fat deposits under the surface of the skin.
      2. The heat damages the structure of the fat cells, killing them.
      3. Your body gets rid of the damaged cells over time.
      4. The fat cells are gone, and they cannot regrow.

With Dr. Brantner, you can see results in as little as six weeks. You’ll reach your final results in about 12 weeks.

The treatment takes less than a half-hour, and you will be one step closer to reaching your goals. You also don’t have to change your daily routine once you finish treatment.

Every individual is different. Some people need a couple of treatments per area, depending on their body and goals. You can come in for your next treatment after six weeks.

Who Can Use SculpSure?

Anyone who wants to target fat cells in their body or face can use this procedure. SculpSure technology effectively decreases fat in the:

  • Flanks
  • Chin area
  • Upper arms
  • Upper and lower back
  • Stomach
  • Thighs

SculpSure is ideal for people in overall good health who stuffer with stubborn fat areas. This procedure can speed up your efforts with toning and fitness.

SculpSure vs. I-Lipo

Unlike SculpSure, other noninvasive fat loss procedures do not get rid of fat cells. For example, i-Lipo uses low-level laser tech to shrink fat cells. These shrunken cells can expand again because they aren’t removed from the body.

When you get i-Lipo or a similar procedure, a doctor will instruct you to pair it with diet and exercise. To truly achieve results this way, you need to completely change your lifestyle.

Compared to i-Lipo, the benefits of SculpSure include:

  • Shorter procedure. SculpSure only takes 25 minutes. With i-Lipo, you will need at least three hour-long treatments over a two-week period.
  • No Need to Diet. You do not have to make lifestyle changes after SculpSure. However, we do encourage eating balanced foods and living actively for your health.
  • No downtime. With SculpSure, you don’t have to waste any time recovering. Unlike with i-Lipo, you do not need to take supplemental medications and diuretics.

SculpSure feels like a warm tingle for the duration of the treatment. It is a virtually pain-free procedure, and it will be over in no time.

Is Fat Loss Different from Weight Loss?

As an adult, you will have the same number of fat cells for the rest of your life. With weight loss, your fat cells decrease in size. However, they are still there, and they can easily increase again.

Some people struggle to lose weight in certain areas of their body even with strict weight-loss regimens. SculpSure ensures fat loss by permanently destroying these cells.
