Inkfree, MD is excited to announce the addition of SculpSure body contouring (non-invasive fat lipolysis) to our core laser treatments. Lipolysis means breakdown (lysis) of fat (lipo). SculpSure is the only FDA-cleared technology that uses heat, via a highly specialized laser and cooling system to selectively destroy fat cells. The most effectively treated areas are the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, the back (bra fat) and the triceps area. The best news is that the results are permanent!

How is this possible you might ask? We are born with a limited number of fat cells. As we age, and with weight gain, the fat cells expand in size. Even with proper diet and exercise, it can often be impossible to lose those stubborn pockets of fat. By selectively destroying the cells just beneath the skin, we are able to achieve a more contoured physique, by slimming down those hard to target areas.

SculpSure Body Contouring is not ideal for everyone and works best with those who have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30 and under. BMI is a simple calculation based on your height and weight. SculpSure is definitely not a substitute for a proper diet and exercise. During a comprehensive consultation with our expert staff, we will examine the areas you desire to be treated and design an individualized treatment plan.

The treatment itself involves the placing of applicators over the desired areas. A prickling and warming sensation will be intermittently felt for a period of 25 minutes. After that, you can go about your day! You can go back to work or even to the gym. There is absolutely no down time. Optimal results will usually require two treatments spaced at least 6 weeks apart.
