Discovering the Durability: How Long Does Body Contouring Last?

At Eternal Beauty Skin Care Clinic, we specialize in body contouring services designed to smooth and shape areas that often challenge even the most dedicated individuals. From the abdomen to the thighs, our treatments for patients in North York and Toronto, ON, can help redefine your natural contours without surgery.

We utilize SculpSure technology for our body contouring treatments because of its long-lasting results. SculpSure is recognized for its effectiveness in reducing fat in targeted areas. By choosing this advanced approach, we provide our patients with a reliable solution for achieving a more sculpted and refined silhouette.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a technique that reshapes areas of the body by eliminating excess fat and skin, resulting in a more defined and smooth silhouette. This approach is especially beneficial for individuals looking to refine their figure after significant weight loss or to target specific areas that do not respond well to other methods. Body contouring methods offer less invasive alternatives with reduced recovery times.

What Is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a type of body contouring that uses laser technology to reduce fat in specific areas by heating fat cells until they are destroyed and naturally eliminated by the body. This process is quick and efficient, with treatments typically lasting under half an hour per area. SculpSure is celebrated for its ability to provide noticeable results without the downtime associated with more invasive fat reduction procedures.

What to Expect From the SculpSure Treatment

Determining If You Are the Right Candidate

One of the benefits of body contouring is its wide applicability across different body types and concerns. Ideal candidates for SculpSure are those close to their target weight but struggling with stubborn fat pockets. The treatment is suitable for patients seeking targeted reduction rather than significant weight loss.

During the Treatment

The body contouring experience with SculpSure is designed for comfort and efficiency. During a session, you can expect the device to alternately deliver cooling sensations to keep the skin comfortable and laser energy to heat fat cells beneath the surface without harming the skin. Each treatment area typically takes about 25 minutes, during which patients can relax, read, or use their phones. It’s a treatment that fits seamlessly into a busy schedule, requiring no downtime.

After the Treatment

Following a SculpSure session, part of the non-invasive body contouring process involves the body naturally eliminating the destroyed fat cells, a process that can take a few weeks to fully manifest results. Patients may experience mild tenderness or stiffness in the treated areas, but these symptoms are temporary and seldom interrupt daily activities. Many see noticeable improvements within six weeks, with optimal results typically observed at 12 weeks as the body continues to flush out fat cells. Regular activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment.

The Science of Fat Loss With SculpSure

Non-surgical body contouring through SculpSure is grounded in the scientific principle of laser-induced lipolysis. This method utilizes a specific wavelength of laser energy to penetrate the skin and target fat cells directly, raising their temperature to the point where their structural integrity is compromised. Over time, the body naturally processes and eliminates these cells, leading to a reduction in fat thickness. This process is precise, allowing for the treatment of designated areas without affecting the surrounding tissues.

How Long Do Results Last After SculpSure?

The durability of body sculpting results with SculpSure can be a significant consideration for anyone looking to maintain their newly refined silhouette. Once the treated fat cells are eliminated by the body, they do not regenerate. To preserve these results, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle, as weight gain can affect the remaining fat cells and alter the appearance of the treated area. While individual experiences may vary, the long-term satisfaction of SculpSure recipients often hinges on their commitment to balanced nutrition and regular physical activity.

Factors That Can Influence the Durability of Your Body Contouring 

  • Age: Age plays a role in how the body responds to body contouring treatments. As we age, our skin’s elasticity and the body’s ability to produce collagen decrease, which can affect the tightness and smoothness of the treated area over time. However, body contouring can still effectively reduce fat and sculpt the body at any age, with the understanding that individual results may vary based on skin quality and overall health.
  • Metabolism: Metabolism influences the outcomes of body contouring. A higher metabolic rate can expedite the process of fat cell elimination post-treatment, potentially enhancing the visibility of results. A slower metabolism might mean that the full benefits of treatment take longer to become apparent. Maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle can positively impact metabolism, contributing to the longevity of treatment effects.
  • Aftercare: Proper aftercare maximizes the longevity of body sculpting results. Following the treatment provider’s guidelines on post-treatment care can help enhance and prolong the effects. This includes staying hydrated, avoiding direct sun exposure to the treated areas, and possibly incorporating certain skin-tightening creams or lotions as recommended.

How Many Sessions Will You Need to Get the Results You Want?

One to three treatments may be right for you. These treatments are spaced a month to six weeks apart to give your body time to heal and adjust. During your consultation, we will consider all of the factors of your situation to design a plan that works for you.
